Thincentre 8084 startup..

#1 Post by MTyn » Tue Nov 16, 2010 3:43 pm

Dear IBM fans..

Next to my 2 T43s, T40p and a desktop Thinkcentre 8183 i have recently a Thincentre A50 tower 8084-7DG.
It works fine, only wonders if it is normal that a startup takes a way long time..

After hit the I/O button it takes about 30 seconds before the screen pops up with the IBM logo and ´system is starting...´
Another 20-30 seconds later it go look for drives (i hear the A drive) and then the HDD is starting XP.

Bios is up to date, RAM is 1GB (4x 256MB) and its a clean XP installation.

Is it normal that a A50 8084 Thinkcentre startup take so long?
If they don´t have a Thinkpad in heaven...IM NOT GOING!!

Thinkpad T61p, Thinkpad T510 i5 & Thinkpad T520 i7
