Slow Boot

By PC_Techie, MCP ·
I unplugged my PC due to a scheduled power outage; when I plugged everything in, my PC takes about 15 to 20 minutes to boot up. It is stuck on the Dell logo. This happens every time the PC is unplugged. Any thoughts? The only thing that I've changed before this is occurring, is that I installed a 500GB HD.

Thank you.

Problems Solved

Within the BIOS settings, there is a setting for AC Restore, which determines how long the PC will power-up after an interruption of power. I turned it off, but haven't had the opportunity to test it. Betting the farm that was the problem.

That's why they pay me the "bug bucks!"
