Vista loads fast in safe mode but relly slow in normal mode

Answers :

Not surprising -- "safe" mode bypasses the loading (reading from your disk-drive and running and self-configuring) of many device-drivers.
\015\012Check the "power" settings -- sometimes, a laptop may deliberately run slowly, to maximize the life of the battery, even when the AC adapter is plugged-in. Select "maximum performance" settings.
