Nobody is a fortune teller here, we need a screenshot of whats being loaded on your system startup,. so grab a copy of autoruns and post a screen for us.

Run Soluto - it will tell you what is holding things up. https://www.soluto.com/

Also, check what applications you have scheduled to run at start-up.

That would be it. Where exactly does it hang? Is it when you're in Windows but it's loading, or is it the splash scree, or prior to splash screen?

MSCONFIG shows only a small subset of your startup items: use "autoruns" instead, but be careful what you shut off.

Three minutes means you have a problem and an SSD won't make much difference unless your HD is hosed - defragment it for a slight improvement.

Though I haven't used it in a while, there is software that will chart your boot process and show you where it's wasting time (like Soluto Analyzes Windows Startup to Give You a Faster Computer ? - I haven't used this particular one). There's also a primitive, overly complicated way (the MS way!) to do something similar with event viewer:
