  1. Ever since I had to reinstall W10 on this pc it has taken in excess of 3 plus minutes to (re)boot up. At one time it took 45 seconds to reboot. Any suggestions??

    What are your specs? what do you have running in the system tray? did you run a msconfig to clear out the stuff that does not need to be loaded?

    That doesn't sound right IMO. Check to see if there's a configurable BIOS delay in booting.

    If not, look for BIOS devices which are NOT installed and disable them.

    in msconfig. their is a startup tab. in that tab you disable any programs that dont need to run. example ccleaner, apple itunes, etc. stuff that u can run yourself when needed.

    If SCSI was enabled, the bios 'pings' the default 15 devices and has to wait for all replies - - all timeouts :sigh:

    It's in the BIOS *IF* there's a SCSI controller on the board.
