S20 4105 slow to boot up after RAM upgrade


I have a factory built  S20 that came with 4GB of RAM. I upgraded it with an additonal 8GB of RAM (2x4). Windows 7 identifies that my system has 12GB of of RAM now.


However, my system now boots up very slowly - when windows 7 logo comes up it takes 4-5 minutes to go beyond that.


The above sounds like a driver or software issue.  If the system is taking minutes to get past the Windows7 "splash" screen, then BIOS is already done doing what it needs to do.


Your computer drivers or software may need updating as well.


Please check that your software and drivers are up to do by visiting our support site.
