A long boot time indicates a driver problem. When you elminiate most of your statup applications and drivers what happens? – Ramhound Jul 22 '13 at 16:20

Sound like it could be the hard drive. Maybe bad sectors, I would update your BIOS and run CHKDSK /R in cmd. Make sure you are an administrator when you run it. to open cmd hit the Windows key+R, then type cmd.
