40 min boot up, even on safe mode???

Evening all, Im new here, been recommended to you guys to hopefully give me an idea of whats happened....

Got Amd athlon 64 x2 6000
2 x 1gb rm
ati radeon hd2600 xt
160gb sata HDD
320gb external HDD
windows 7 x86

Kaspersky internet security 2010 says no virus, defragged my 5% fragmented HDD, no spyware as says spybot s&d, ad-aware and also iobit, cpu temp runs at 48c idle, 55c on test...yet it soo slow to boot up....

Been told it MIGHT be a cpu issue, i kinda hope it is as dont want to fresh clean install win 7 as ive got it set up nice now!!!!

Hello & welcome to the forums.

Have you ran a chkdsk?

Try this 1st:
Open a cmd prompt as admin & type:
sfc /scannow

Found the problem, I couldnt even find issues with repair windows 7 on the dvd, it was a crashed out sata HDD, i put an old IDE drive on, and it allowed me to re-start and install windows 7, put the sata HDD on, couldnt even load safe mode, it just went blank after an hour of loading, so a new HDD is on now, working good.

But thanks for the reply

There a lot on this forum ...seems informative

Windows crashed. Now can't boot, even in repair mode or safe mode.
