What he means is that internet connection speed wont have any effect whatsoever on a pcs boot time, so your obviously on about something else.

The lappy is all factory stock, only 1.3 mhz, 256 ram, 40 gig hhd.

But I tweaked it the best I could....from the time I push the power button til windows is loaded, I would say about 25 seconds... :P
