Sorry if this has been asked before , but i think my dell inspiron 15 r takes a lot of time to boot....
i have an i5 processor , 4gb ram. so i think it should load pretty much fast but it does not..
it takes around 120 seconds and only after that i am able to use the laptop..i have done running MSCONFIG and disabling the system services and startup services but then it takes more time... i know its odd but this is my observation....
also , it boots differently everytime :| i mean sometimes the startup sound comes at the "starting windows" window and sometimes after all the icons have finished loading..
sometimes the icons takes more time to load , the homescreen widget also loads randomly....
what to do..??
Welcome to Dell Community. That does seem a bit long. Has it always been like that, or is it just recently that this is happening? You had a performance issue with gaming back in November. Was that ever resolved? What anti-virus are you using? Some take longer to load than others. Have you run any malware scans?

thanks for an early reply :)
it has always been like this and back then i had no problem but another friend using the same laptop with i3 and 2 gb ram started quickly so thats when i thought something's wrong with my laptop...
i am using McAfee Anti-Virus Plus... i did not stopped this in the startup services...
no i have not checked for any malware , mcafee searches for spyware and viruses , never thought of malware.. will run a malware scan....
coming to gaming issue , yes its been solved , i replied in that particular thread just now :D
i observed one thing , whenever my laptop was charging , gaming was smooth , then i ran into battery plan settings ,
and saw when charger was connected , it changed the battery plan to high performance and the games never lagged...
but but , if i ever want to play any game i have to connect the charger , even changing to high performance without connecting the charger , the game lagged...
can any other user help me..??
Windows startup programs. What are they? Are they required? How can I disable them?
There is a chance there could be malware, also. Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware update it and do a quick scan. If it finds anything, post the log back here.
What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
