Inspiron 1501 slow to start up

Sometimes my Inspiron 1501 freezes at the "welcome" message after start up., other times it starts up completely fine. I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks

Start with a complete (extended) run of the Dell diagnostics -- the extended RAM and hard drive tests (NOT just the quick ones).  Press F12 at powerup to get in.
