broken dvd rewriter causing slow start-up?

Recently my rewriter gave up the ghost,and ever since then my computer has been slow to start up.Could this just be coincidence,i've gone into 'msconfig' and i only have my anti virus and anti spyware loading at start up.Is there any way of speeding up the boot time inbetween now and getting the rewriter fixed/replaced? thanks in advance.

if you think this is a possible problem you could
take out in bios, or pull cable from rear
