Boot time taking 3.5 minutes at start-up


G

Gordon Biggar

I am using Windows 2000 Pro, Service Pack 4.

The "Intel Inside" window is on the screen for about 70 seconds. The screen
is then blank for about 40 seconds. Windows 2000 appears at the 2 1/2
minute mark. The Log In screen appears at about the 3 minute mark, five
seconds; the desktop appears at 3 and 1/2 minutes.

About six months ago I added a 200 GB hard drive, but I updated the bios to
reflect the larger drive. There are 500 mb of memory, 250 mb of which I
added about three months ago. I always install the Windows Updates when
they appear.

I always run a defrag of the hard drive. Is there anything else that could
be slowing the boot time?

Even more memory would help. Intel Inside? Is that the BIOS screen?
Maybe when you added memory some settings were altered and it's doing a
full memory check instead of a fast boot?

By the Win2K screen, I assume you mean the low-res one with the blue
progress bar on the bottom? That should show up after the BIOS start and
the text-based white bar of the initial Win2K load. After that, the
screen usually blanks while the video is initialized, and then you get
the 'Windows is starting up', 'initializing networking', etc... type
windows before the login.

Also, what type of CPU? Do you have AntiVirus, and if so, what type?
Does Device Manager show any unknown or not-found devices? Anything in
Event Viewer?

I seem to be getting deeper into trouble.

I uninstalled the TCP/IP (pertaining to Event ID 4191). I went through
Networking and Dial-Up, selected Local Area Network/Properties, but when I
rebooted, I did not have the option of selecting TCP/IP, so I selected
Client for Microsoft Networks and installed that. This gave me Client
Service for NetWare, NWLink Net BIOS, NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible
Transport Protocol, and AEGIS Protocol(IEEE 802.1x)v3.4.5.0.

I selected Client for Microsoft Networks again and found my way to Protocol,
and selected TCP/IP and installed same. However, I still cannot connect to
the Internet. I am hoping that I have a conflict with the added links shown
above, and that by deleting one or more I can establish a network
connection. Before continuing, I thought that I should touch base first.

FYI - I am using a Netgear wireless connection to a router.

Yes, you don't need any of the netware stuff. From a command prompt;

When I type in the command, I get a black background screen with about ten
lines (?) of info for about one-half a second. Then, it disappears. How
can one freeze the window display?

Also, is it okay to go ahead and delete all of the Netware stuff?

Ipconfig.exe is an administrator's tool and like most administrator's tools
it should be run from the Command Prompt. Here is what you need to do:
1. Click Start / Run
2. Type the three letters cmd
3. Click OK
4. Type the following commands and press Enter after each of them:
ipconfig /all > c:\test.txt
notepad c:\test.txt
5. Copy & paste the text into your reply.

This is because you left out the command. It should have been:
notepad c:\Test.txt

About the data you post: It reveals that the machine is set up to obtain its
IP address automatically, and it's not happening. I cannot see how this PC
can connect to the Internet (or, for that, to anything else). What means do
you have to connect to the Internet? An ADSL modem/router? A cable modem? A
dial-up connection? If it is one of the first two, what is the IP address of
that device? It might be something like 192.168.1.1.

Well, it's like this: until I uninstalled the TCP/IP (per an earlier thread
in this discussion), I was running splendidly. I use a Netgear Wireless PCI
adapter (IP address: 169.254.34.80), connected to a Verizon router, which
connects to the Internet via Fios cable. The uninstall (per the earlier
thread) was to eliminate a TCPIP error, Event #4191, taken from the System
Log. When I reinstalled TCP/IP, per the instructions, it obviously did not
connect me back to the Internet.

When I typed in "notepad c:\Test.txt," the response stated that it could not
file the file, and asked me if I wanted to create a new file. I answered
NO.

You must realize that you are dealing with the great computer unwashed here.

The comma was an editorial insert. I used the command line that you cited,
and then ran c:\test.txt. What I accomplished was a replica of the IP
Configuration and Adapter settings shown in my earlier response. Nothing
new was shown.

Do you know for certain that the router is handing out 169.254.34.80 That's
an address in the APIA range 169.254.xxx.xxx You may need to re-enter the
credentials for the device on the other end of the wireless connection.

Pegasus is correct and I am wrong.

Using my laptop, which can connect to the Internet, it shows my Actiontec
router address as 192.168.1.1. The IP address that I provided (Netgear
Wireless PCI adapter; 169.254.34.80) is that of the Netgear unit. Does
this mean that the Auto Configuration IP address of 169.254.34.80 is
incorrect?

Gordon

Correct, you don't want the netware stuff.

When I type in the command, I get a black background screen with about
ten lines (?) of info for about one-half a second. Then, it disappears.
How can one freeze the window display?

Also, is it okay to go ahead and delete all of the Netware stuff?

This address is incorrect. It suggests that your machine is not talking to
your wireless router. Setting up a wireless connection can be tricky and in
view of your limited experience I recommend that you ask a computer-savvy
friend to assist you.

Pegasus is correct and I am wrong.

Using my laptop, which can connect to the Internet, it shows my Actiontec
router address as 192.168.1.1. The IP address that I provided (Netgear
Wireless PCI adapter; 169.254.34.80) is that of the Netgear unit. Does
this mean that the Auto Configuration IP address of 169.254.34.80 is
incorrect?

Gordon

Do you know for certain that the router is handing out 169.254.34.80
That's an address in the APIA range 169.254.xxx.xxx You may need to
re-enter the credentials for the device on the other end of the wireless
connection.

Well, it's like this: until I uninstalled the TCP/IP (per an earlier
thread in this discussion), I was running splendidly. I use a Netgear
Wireless PCI adapter (IP address: 169.254.34.80), connected to a Verizon
router, which connects to the Internet via Fios cable. The uninstall
(per the earlier thread) was to eliminate a TCPIP error, Event #4191,
taken from the System Log. When I reinstalled TCP/IP, per the
instructions, it obviously did not connect me back to the Internet.

When I typed in "notepad c:\Test.txt," the response stated that it could
not file the file, and asked me if I wanted to create a new file. I
answered NO.

No, it simply means you're failing to get an address from your DHCP server
(your router or other device on the other end of the wireless connection)
Possibly because of missing WEP key.
