Re: Windows 7 Startup Delay Before Login Screen
It's usually a service that's hanging that causes issues with start-up or shutdown if I'm honest. Try booting up into safe mode (tap F8 a few times after turning the PC on to get the option), and that should load the PC with minimal start-up programs/services. If you don't have a problem at this point, then it's a piece of software (or possibly driver) that's been installed that is causing an issue.
