so, just to be clear, since you have installed a new psu, it takes longer for your pc to boot?

Hello Fusion, amd welcome to our forum.

It sounds to me like windows is looking for some device, device driver or a network drive.

Go to Start > Control panel > Administrative tools > Event viewer > look in the system section.

You are looking for any red or yellow icons, from the last startup date only, double click on the icon.
Click inside the 'Description' section then highlight the text and copy and paste it into notepad.
At the bottom of the event window check 'words' and then copy and paste that text also
Then past it all into your reply to this thread.

If you don't show any errors in the event viewer then:
Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery section
Settings button > System Failure section > check the box 'Write an event to the system log'


You should also check the device manager:
Right click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device manager.
Once a gain you are looking for any yellow question marks or red "X"s

Fusion,

Do you have a device that syncs with your windows media player?
If so I think that's where your problem my be, you may have to uninstall this device and then reinstall it.

Also do you have any Norton products installed?

Hi Fusion

You might want to check the harddrive for errors. Right click on the C drive and go to properties. Click on tools and then click on "check now" for errors. It will tell you that it can't do it now and have it do it on boot up. Shut down and restart.

I've had this happen where the power shuts off with a machine that's up and running. It gets shut down in the middle of writing to the drive.
