I've had this laptop for a few years and just recently bought it from my former employer.
When I quit that job last week they had to wipe my computer, which should've been as easy as restoring an image.
Except the image wasn't found, everything went awry, they had to download a new bootable drive, and I had to wait for four hours instead of the usual 20 minutes.

And now it just won't boot correctly.
When I turn it on it often hangs in a black screen which only a hard reset will solve.
The seconds time it takes one to two minutes to boot instead of the usual ten to twenty seconds.
I did some diagnostics checks, but everything seems to be OK...
There's nothing at startup that could take such a time.
I'm on the latest updates of both Dell and Windows.
And now it hangs on the installation of a (really very latest) Windows update at 61% Sigh | :sigh:

I'm a bit out of options and I'm considering doing another fresh install... Frown | :(
