Extremely Long Boot Times Intermittently
For the past few months my laptop (Compaq Presario V2311US) will occasionally take EXTREMELY LONG to boot. Sometimes it will just completely freeze. This is intermittently, and is completely normal sometimes.
I think I know what the problem is, but I am not going to say. I want someone else to confirm my suspicion, without me putting ideas into their head.
Before you suggest it, I have tried a complete fresh install of Windows, and I know it is not a virus/spyware/whatever because it also acts up when booting Ubuntu Linux.
OS: Windows XP Pro or Ubuntu Linux
CPU: AMD Turion64
