all the sudden my Xp machine takes several minutes to boot up.
After the splash screen comes up a black screen with only the mousepointer working,
then after 3 to 5 minutes appears the login window and even after logging in the user ( or admin) account it takes a little bit toolong until getting a usable desktop.
I can boot into safe mode without delays, but I have no idea how to solve.
I did a repair-reinstall , but it did not solve the problem.
On the same machine there is a Linux Ubuntu distro installed and that system is still working as before, so I would like to esclude hardware problems.
If someone has an idea how to solve this problem I would appreciate a lot.
attached there is a CPU-Z report describing the hardware
