Alright, I'm not 100% on what the problem is, but I'm 90% sure, and I appreciate any help you guys give me on solving this. I recently had my computer formatted. Getting to the point, everything was working perfectly, it was booting up extremely smoothly, the drivers were all working, then I was updating my computer with microsoft windows updates, specifically the Service Packs up to service pack 3. However, during one of the updates that required me to restart, my computer took an extremely long time to boot up, (15 minutes or so), and it became extremely slow and laggish at the first load screen on boot up where it says: Auto-detecting 3rd Master OR/AND Auto-detecting 3rd Slave. Now my guess is something somehow got changed here, and my hard drive / CD drive should be booting on a primary instead of a 3rd, but honestly, I'm not too sure, and even if this was the problem, I don't know how to change those things. If any of you can give me some assistance, it would be greatly appreciated, as these 15-20 minutes boot times are killing me!
