paging file? what do you mean by that? Sorry I'm good with computers but not THAT literate, and thank you very much for the quick response times.

in a much simpler term... paging file is one of the memory-management schemes by which a computer can store and retrieve data from secondary storage for use in main memory..

click on start and on the search bar .. type "view advance system settings"

Then under Performance click Settings

Then select the Advanced Tab and under Virtual Memory click on Change

And there you will see which drive has it and whether its system managed.... etc,...

ok i tried rebooting, without the HDD. It says "reboot and select a proper boot device" so i plugged it back in, and it went back to the starting windows screen and stayed there for a few minutes and finally went to login screen, so I did a little test, I rebooted it again and it went to the starting windows screen but when it was there i unplugged the hard drive and it still stayed at the starting windows screen for a few minutes, then it went right into the login screen, this doesnt make sense to me?

Ok so heres the thing if I keep the HDD plugged in on the starting windows screen it either freezes or its just taking an extreeeeeemely long time to get past it. If I unplug the hard drive in this screen it goes right into the login page

"Welcome" screen takes a long time
Hello all, So I was just wondering if this is a problem inherent to Windows 7, or if I'm having bad luck with my hard drives. I popped in a new Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB hard drive, expecting start up to go a lot faster than with my old drive. The first start up was extremely quick, but...
