very slow boot up/start up windows 7 asus zenbook UX32VD

I m looking for some advice and infos about a recent problem with my zenbook UX 32 VD
I should first specify the specs: core i7 @ 1.9Ghz, 10Go RAM, dedicated GeForce GT620M, windows 7 64bit (version 6.1.7601 service pack 1 built 7601)
The problem is it takes a while to boot up....between 2min and 8min with an annoying black screen before the "windows starting up" logo....it was not the case before and it should not be the case considering that windows 7 is supposed to be installed on a SSD drive.
I tried a lot of things that people talked about on internet: downloading all the latest drivers for Norton, Nvidia graphics and so on....I also used CCcleaner in case of registry errors, I did a memory test, I defragmented eveything possible, I checked for viruses, I cleaned up the drives, I restarted the computer after removing the services programs and the startup programs (using MSCONFIG)....
And it didn't change anything, it is still freakin slow to get the welcome menu....then the laptop works pretty fine.
I should also mention that I got no response typing F2, F8, F12 or the space bar during the long black screen when starting up the machine....which is pretty annoying too.
Looking forward for some magician to help me, cheers
