    not much left to do, except check your harddrive for errors or viruses, or even a failing harddrive.

    Hows your CPU temp?

    Ive scanned for viruses and malware and none were found. Ive run a harddrive diagnostic both quick and full scan and found no issues however the problem still persists. I just started up my computer and it booted into windows in less than 10 seconds which is odd because it usually takes about 30 to 45 seconds.
