Having problems with your Dell Latitude C610 P3 Notebook ?

Loooong boot up issue on Dell Latitude C610.

\015 Hi - I just bought a Dell Latitude C610 Laptop. The issue is that once you turn it on, after the Dell logo goes, it takes aprox. 18 minutes to boot to the desktop. The laptop has 256MB of RAM (which I will buy an xtra 512MB at least), 30GB hard disk and the BIOS version are up to date (latest bios version is A16 according to Dell website). I'm not sure that 256mb of memory will slow it down like this on bootup. It may be possible that this is a hardware issue but do not have the troubleshooting CD for it. Any ideas I will greatly appreciate. Thank you beforehand.\\r\\n\015\012Edward Nino\015

Did you buy this from an individual? The computer is no speed demon at 1-GHz/733-MHz\015\012\011\011\011\011Pentium III-M CPU, 256MB of SDRAM, 512KB L2 cache, however it should not take 18 minutes to boot.

If I were in your shoes I would reformat and reinstall the OS and start over, especially if you got this from an individual.

The boot time should greatly improve! I think it is loaded down with the bloat of **** the last person had on it.

If you do not want to reformat, here are some tips, and programs to run to increase performance.

go to start - run - type msconfig hit enter,
\015\012startup tab uncheck everything not needed at startup time.


www.ccleaner.com - get it and run it on the laptop, clean it out. Make sure you run the registry cleaner too!

Make sure you run a good online virus scan! like trend micro house call.

That should speed it up a little if you cannot reformat it and start over.
