Booting is defined as: "The time when a computer's motherboard, Hard Drive, RAM, and other peripherals receive power from the distributor." During this time the computer's OS (Operating System [instructions for the computer]) are loaded into the RAM and several small diagnostics are run (mouse, keyboard, USB, monitor). Depending on your computer's available memory, Operating system, and number of boot files, this can take anywhere from 30 seconds to about two and a half seconds.
