A new problem has surfaced on my Compaq Presario 1200 XL111 laptop. The boot up now takes about 10 minutes as opposed to about a minute. No new software has been loaded prior to slow down of bootup. Before slow boot problem surface, everyhing worked fine.
Compaq Presario 1200 XL111 Laptop
AMD CPU 500 MHz, 128 MB Ram
Windows 98 SE
6.0 GB HD
Standard floppy drive
No network cards
Lucite 56k dial up modem
I have done a scandisk, defrag and no speed up of boot.
Ran Nortons anivius with latest definitions and did not find a virus.
Ran boot log analyar and found that it takes 169 Seconds for hsflop.pdr to load which indicates something is not working right.
I have replace hsflop.pdr with a know good version, but it still boots very slow.
Any help will be grating appreciated.
