Having problems with your Dell XPS 410 PC Desktop ?

Xps 410 seems to take a long time to boot.It takes 4 or 5 min. and seems to do alot of hard drive swapping. I have already taken it back to factory condition, got rid of the extra preloaded stuff. Updated the bios and all the recomended drivers. This didn't seem to help at all. I have live one care as my internet security. I added 2 gigs of memory to 3 gigs total. Also didn't seem to help. Please help
