Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Computer re-boot takes 4 minutes and not all disks found

Hello all,

Lately my computer start and re-boots very slow. And now it also asked which windows to start, I only installed W7 so why asking?
Also now, it doesn't recognize all the hard drives which are installed, on which the data is stored and also the my documents folders.
Could someone help my out?

Greetings K. Kroese

Hi, sorry for the delay.

Test the hard drive and RAM, check for infection, test System Files, establish a Clean Boot, reboot. Then if necessary work through the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 until you get a solution.

If you'll report back as you go other steps may be indicated.
