When starting Ubuntu booting takes about 2-3 min. It's quite slow. There are no USB devices connected. Screen is black. Does anyone knows what's the problem?

It might be a good idea to post your computer specs so that we know how fast it should be starting up. Also, when you say the screen is black, is it like this for the whole boot process? Do you see anything like a loading bar or a grub menu?

check your startup programs, and in the system bios, check the boot device order. Also, get gtk orphan from synaptic, maybe there is bd libs slowing you down, this will fix them.

No it's not dual boot system. One system and one partition.

Does your monitor go into stand-by mode during boot?

My desktop's monitor used to do that with Gutsy (i think, might have been linuxMCE actually) for some reason.

Usually monitors have an led light colour change to indicate wether it is on or in standby mode - does the led light on your monitor change when you finally see something appear during boot?

It's notebook and it doesn't have any light indicator. But screen is black as #000000 :)
