Reboot time excessive

I have a Dell Precision M6600 w/ 16 gigs of Ram and 750 GB HD.
I run win 7 pro 64bit.

After having to replace the HD and re-installing all drivers, the system takes 320 seconds to do a re-boot. Otherwise the machine works great.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause this or how I might isolate the problem? I have exhusted my knolodge of windows and would sure like some help.
