Why such a long bootup?
When I boot my new computer, a Dell Inspiron 660s, it starts with the "Dell" screen and it sits there for about 1 minute, then goes on to the "Starting Windows" screen and continnues to boot up. My question is, what is the computer doing that takes so long before it actually starts Windows? Is there any way to speed it up?
As a reference, my previous computer, a 3 year old Dell Inspiron, also with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, would boot up from start to desktop in less time than this new one stays on the "Dell" screen.
