Maybe reinstall Windows.

Thumbs up

Could be a whole bunch of things....but, I just had the same problem with a back up computer. One of the attached CDRW's failed. You probably have a malfunctioning component and it's either a floppy or cdr I would suspect. Unplug the power from your floppy and cdrom's, dvd rom and then power you puter back up. If it boots up quickly...there ya of those components needs to become a frisby! If not that?????????? window reinstall maybe, as stated above. EDIT: the psu remains a good possibility as well.

i don't know about the psu because that would probably mean fairly consistent low performance although it can take more power to boot. but you could be right about a failing drive, a break down in communication between the drive and other components could cause it to take a while to register information and thus a long time to boot
