    Smile Acer Aspire Starts up super slow


    I have a Acer Aspire one and when i turn it on/start it up it takes super long (10-15 minutes).
    The screen is first black for about 10 minutes and then the screen saver shows, but without the desktop icons - which only appear in the next +-five minutes.
    I have windows Xp on it.
    How would i get the laptop to start up normally again? - please.

    Thank you!
