For more than a few weeks I noticed that my laptop starts very slowly. I even timed and lasts two minutes each time. I reinstalled the system (Ubuntu 10) but even booting from the CD last long. After reinstallation the same problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

Sorry I am not much of a Linux guy... Possibly an updated driver is needed?

here is what I find online, hope useful to you

You need to find out what exactly is slow. This is hard because of the Ubuntu splash screen. You can edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to get rid of this.
Find lines like the following

title Ubuntu Linux stock kernel (2.6.15-23-386)
root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic ro root=/dev/sda6 quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic

and remove the options "quiet" and "splash"

Then reboot and watch where the boot spends most of its time.
