Unhappy Hard Hardware

Hi Everyone,

I have a HP computer with a NVidia Geforce video board and I been having slow boot times(Up to 1m 30s to boot). I found out it was the video card because i uninstalled it and windows booted faster and the green progress bar did not freeze. I downloaded and installed the latest driver and now it is doing it again. Thanks in advance, any help will be greatly appreciated!

To be safe, try downloading the 30.82 driver revision off NVIDIA's site, and not the Detonator 40 revision.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

Also, how much RAM is in the machine? An onboard video card is going to claim it's own chunk and iirc, the geforce2 could be of two flavors: 32mb and 64mb.
