memory test very slow at sturtup

  1. Dear All,
    When I try to start my computer, the memory test at the boot time is very slow. Normally it used to be about 2 sec. and and now it takes about 20 seconds. I did not install any new hardware, last time when I used my pc I tried to perform disk defrag. and it stopped at 70%. When I restarted the computer windows would not start (it might start after long time I think. If memory check takes that long windows would take hours to load) So am kind of stuck, I removed the memory and tried in different slot, I disconected hd and still nothing.
    Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my pc. If this is a problem of memory that's not bad, but if I have to change cpu or mb, that could be expensive.
    Many thanks

    Rob
