    after you reinstalled windows did you load the motherboard drivers and other drivers fromt he dell resource disk? are there any devices in device manager that have a yellow question mark or yellow triangle with a black exclamation mark inside them next to them?

    You should still load the drivers for it. right now everytime windows starts it is spending time searching for the driver for that device. Also install your motherboard drivers. Your motherboard will not perform as it should without them installed.

    The main reason is the integrated graphics you have. You´ve made another thread regarding the Intel graphics, we can help you there!
