Can anyone advise me how to solve this problem?
Windows 8 is literally taking 2 minutes to Boot!

I am also having an issue with not being able to change the screen resolution. I tried updating drivers. Resolution is set to 1024 x 768. There are no other choices.

Computer information is as follows:
Windows 8 Professional with Media Center (build 9200)
Hewlett-Packard Presario V2000 (ET931UA#ABA) Rev 1
1.80 gigahertz AMD Mobile Sempron
1920 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory
BIOS: Hewlett-Packard F.52 01/20/2007

Very grateful for any solutions.

Thanks a million!

Maybe there are no Windows 8 compatible drivers for your laptop. Also, it may be a bit lightweight for Windows 8. Did you ever have Windows 7 on it, or are you coming straight from XP?
