CMOS slw startup problem

I bought a Compaq Mini 110c-1111ev 1 year ago, & it had a very big problem with booting up the bios software when turning the notebook on, when you turn it on it stuck with Q logo, I went back to the store & they changed it to me, but they gave me another one with the same problem but it boots up after a long time, I went back but they refused to change it & direct me to the maintenance, & the maintenance dept. told me that it works great!!

3 times they said to me that till I left it, nowadays, I'm in need to use it back but when I turned it on I remembered it's problem & I want to fix it, I tried to flash the bios & update it after it boots to windows, but nothing happened, it still stuck on Q logo when I turn it on for a long time!!

According to my sources you hit F10 after the power button to get into bios for your model computer. I don't think the bios is your problem though--sounds more like a software problem to me. You may want to try running your anti-virus and malware problems. If that does not clear your problem you may need to reinstall your operating system.

Do you really think that if I installed a fresh copy of operating system it will start fast when turning it on, I tried this before but with nothing good, the notebook came with Windows XP Home Edition, & I installed WIN7 on it, it became faster for a little time then go back again to turn on so slow again after that I tried to install WINXP back but it's more slower in booting up to the HDD after turning it ON, then I went back to WIN7 but the notebook works slow on it as it's a heavy system, I don't think the problem is software issue, it's something wrong with hardware, another thing may inspire you to help me, if I restart or standby it it wakes up quickly but when I shut it down & turn it ON again, it starts slow, it keep stuck on Q logo for a long time then boot up to HDD or what ever the booting device (USB, CD, ....etc), I wish if you can find a solution or confirm to me your answer, thanks a lot for your support

I've formatted & repartitioned the whole H.D.D, still the problem exists, I guess if it's something wrong with the software or even a virus it should be removed, so now what? :(

Apparently your system seems to have a large boot load, Therefore you can perform a start-up check by MS config. Please follow the steps below:

Open start menu then click Run.

In Run windows type Msconfig and then press enter.

You will see a window opened with different Tabs in front of you .

Go to the Tab Start-up.

Then click disable all or UN-check all option.

After that your system will prompt you to apply changes and restart your PC.

Go ahead and accept that option and you will see a drastic change in your Start-up. Thanks
