Ok.. Processor- 3ghz single core RAM- 3gb (32-bit os - Vista) Every time I Startup and Shutdown...it takes forever. I asked around and I've been told it's a Bios problem. I'm more of a hardware savvy kind of guy and I need some help. So when I boot up, it gives me the HP bios screen..and sits there for about 4-5 minutes, very frustrating, I have done memory tests and all that junk. Scanned for faulty hardware, every thing came up just fine. This just started maybe a month ago. Any suggestions?
