How can I make my computer start up faster?


I have HP laptop and im running windows vista. But after I turn on the computer the computer starts and even the boot screens shows up, but then theres just a black screen for like 5-8 minutes. Then the whole computer turns off and starts up again without any problems. But its really annoying to be waiting like 10 minutes untill my computer starts up. Can somebody help me please?


And I forgot to say that i didnt had those kind of problems before. Everything was working good...this problem started like 2 weeks ago.
