Hi
I have  just bought a laptop computer running Windows XP Pro. (it came with Vista  but I took it off)When it starts it hangs at the Windows XP Logo for about 55secs before going to the welcome screen. Is this normal for a laptop?

Thanks in advance for any help

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

www.breakthroughversion.com

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

A little longer than normal, but more a function of installed memory and CPU speed. A bloated registry, old/bad drivers etc. can also cause this to occur.

   It also could be something like the network setting things up.

Hi
Thanks for the reply.
I don't think its a bloated registry as I regularly clean that out and have 2 gig of memory.  I have just networked it to my desktop computer through a router.so Could this be the cause?

Thanks

   If you have the TCP/IP settings set to configure themselves automatically (which is how mine are and most people's are), that could be causing the delay.

   You can configure a manual IP address of 90.0.0.1 (you can put whatever numbers you want as long as each one is between 0 and 255) and a default subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. The other computers on your network each can use a different IP address in the same class, such as 90.0.0.2, 90.0.0.3, 90.0.0.4, and so on. This way, each computer has a permanent IP address. Note that if you change the IP addresses of your computers, they must all use the same subnet mask.
