Booting windows 2000 is very slow

By daya_hs ·
Why does the computer takes time to boot when it has Windows 2000 as Operating System?

Is the Windows 2000 checks for the errors when it is booting up?

You had never mentioned if this system is connected to a network or just installed on your home system. If it is on the network, it moves very slow....I've seen on a small network a system take approx. 5min....there is not much you can do about it but wait for it to boot up..if it is a stand alone....if the memory is low...that could account for a slow boot up....win 2k requires 128 meg/ram for full functionality......Art

windows 2000 boots up just about as fast as windows 9x does. what you see on the screen is a lot different however.

if you have an unusually slow boot-up time, then there is a problem. but it is not a 'feature' of the os.

If it is slow doing other things you may have a failing harddrive. We have over a hundred Win2000 systems out in the field and when the our log file shows slow booting it has always been a failing harddrive.

Is this computer a part of the network? Is it a Server or Win2k Professional?

If you have Win2k Server installed, the pc will boot slower than with Win2k Pro.

Servers often boot slow because of incorrect or unneccessary network settings. If it is a server, do you have dhcp, wins, active directory, or some other networking service installed that might be looking for things on the network that aren't there.

If it's a w2k pro machine, the same thing may apply. It will boot slower if you have tcp/ip set to use dhcp, wins, or dns servers that don't exist or are unreachable on the network.

I'm assuming your hardware is adequate, Win2000 very hardware intensive. It takes lots of RAM, and reasonable CPU power. You probably wouldn't want to run it on anything less than a PII 400 with 96 megs of RAM as a general rule.
