Fastboot S50 type 8429?

Smiley Happy Hi peeps, newbie here, nice to find you.

I just wanted to ask is there a way to fast boot a S50, for instance getting past the POST screen at the beginning of the boot, please?

Below is my current system:-

 

Product: ThinkCentre S50 8429-KG7

 Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz (1MB),
  533MHz FSB
, 1.2Gb RAM
, 40GB 7200RPM IDE HDD
, PCI Small Form Factor (2x3)
, Intel 865G
, 48x CD-ROM
, Intel 10/100 Ethernet
, Windows XP Professional

 

Can anyone please help me, i have to wait for up to 3 minutes for a boot, surely it should be alot less?

 

Many thanks

start menu>run type msconfig>startup tab. Only have checked what you want to load at startup. (recommend leaving AV at startup)

Many thanks for that, but i still need to get past the POST screen.

All that does is diminish the amount of programs that load up on startup?

If i went into Advanced POST settings, is there a way of turning off the POST check or at least minimizing it so it doesn't take so long ?

 

Cheers
