From pressing the power button to displaying Dell logo takes 35 seconds. Too long! how do I shorten the time?

And my cheap HP laptop takes only 2-3 seconds -_-

    Click the Start button. In the search box, type msconfig, and in the list of results, right-click msconfig and select Run as administrator. In the System Configuration window, click the Startup tab. Uncheck the programs or applications that you want to disable from loading during startup and click OK!

    but first, you might try unplugging all USB devices before pressing power on.

    if that doesn't help, try resetting BIOS to defaults.

    lastly, you can try updating or re-flashing the BIOS.

    You are not providing enough information. What equipment are you using. How old is it? What software are you using? What programs are loaded? 35 seconds...not too bad when factors are taken into consideration. Don't shut it down...just "suspend"...which is what I am thinking your LAPTOP is actually DOING.

    Try this test take the back of it off and unplug the hard drive. Then restart the computer and see how long it takes for the logo to appear. If it appears right away you know that it's bad hard drive. If that doesn't do anything unplugged the CD drive and test it the same way. If none of the peripherals have a problem after this test. Try new RAM sticks.

    Defrag it. Check if your auto defrag could be turned off, turn it on and do a defrag manually one time.
