    Post How do I make my PC boot faster?

    I was just at a party and we all went down to McDonalds and my computer didn't even boot by the time we got there! It takes about a minute to boot which isn't that bad, but I want the best! I know if I boot to DOS it will be a LOT faster or if I put in Linux. I've never even touched Linux so about the DOS. Can I still use Lorty's plugin? This MXPF or whatever sounds good, but I love lorty's plugin. Is there a DOS version of winamp? Seems like it would be a lot easier. Thanks.

    I would say "go for MPXPLAY and MPXF" if you want speed...
    My computer is a P75 and it boots in less than 20seconds..

    links:

    mpxplay
    mpxf

    I use mpxplay and my own TSR (for 2x20 displays) and get a ten second boot, less time than it takes to start my car on most days.

    mpxf is a front end for mpxplay, similar to a plugin. You can't use lorty's plugin anymore

    Dude, you also need a capslock key!

    MPXPlay is a DOS mp3 player, like winamp (sorta), but for dos.

    MPXF is a front end for MPXPLAY, just like a plugin for winamp.

    Lortys is a plug-in for winamp.

    Go to the links that bgoodman posted, and check em out.

    AND THAT KEY TO THE LEFT TO THE 'A' KEY ITS CALLED THE CAPSLOCK

    hmm bootup time is depended on hardware. I souped up my msi 6215 with 128MB RAM PC133, 30 gigATA100 HD, 6X dvd, celeron 667mhz. I have on startup irassistant, mbm5, and winamp running like 4 plugins at once (winLCD, AVS, X-plugin), and from turning on the PC to the first song heard and all plugins loaded is exactly 40s.
    Just upgrade to better hardware and your bootup should be faster
