Re: Why does it take so long for boot up, windows 7

I have just got a new pavilion dv6 and I am having the same problem, it is so slow.  I posted a question yesterday and havent got an answer yet.  I have deleted lots of the programmes it came with and it made no difference, cant get hold of anyone from HP so as soon as ive figured how to wipe it its going back to the shop.

Re: Why does it take so long for boot up, windows 7

My hp pavilion is so bad.  It is a year old and I am ready to give up the $800. I paid for it and get a Toshiba like my husband has and at half the cost.  It is a far superior laptop.  My hp takes forever to start up, I keep getting that annoying little rotating circle forever, I cannot disable hp support, it crashes at will.  It is AWFUL.  No wonder HP is having its issues as a company.  I would love for Meg Whitman to see this comment and respond.   Does anyone else have these hideously annoying issues?
