Well its been awhile since ive posted..lol But anyways, im having probs with my win xp system. When i turn on my computer and it boots in to win xp and gets to the welcome screen, it takes the computer around 5 mins to read the 3.5 floppy drive. While its just sitting there you can type in your password and it will sit there and load half of the desktop then when it reads the floppy drive finally it loads the other half of the desktop. I reformatted my harddrive thinking that it would fix it but it didnt. What can i do to fix this...my computer is a HP Pentium 3 933MHz, 384MB RAM, 40GB HD running windows xp pro. Thanks for the help.
