Need help! Fast pc boots for 20 minutes!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So the problem is pretty simple. I've been fixing pcs and programming for years now and thought that i could fix anything, but now I've found a bottleneck of all problems I've fixed. Basically, my old pc, really good actually (4 cores @ 3 gHz each, 4 gb of 800 mhz memory and a HD4670) used to boot up Windows XP Professional with 30 seconds, 40 seconds top. Now I decided to make use of it again and started by uninstalling unnecessary junk i had there. After restarting, it took pc 30 minutes to boot!!!! And so it has been for a day now. Ive tried recovery consoles and replacing potentially harmed windows files but nothing helps. Ive had this problem before once actually but i dont remember how i managed to fix it back then. My guess is that i might be corrupted driver slowing the boot time to 30 minutes. Please help and ask details!

If it's an older setup how long sense it's been reimaged? Have you scanned HDD for damage?

I love that video, My parents old Dell Dimension could beat that even on a BAD day lol.

If it takes that long to boot into Windows, 9 out of 10 times it's a dying HDD.

yeah chances are it's your hardrive, corrupted mbr, errors on hd.

if it boots to safemode it could be damaged sectors, you should try, if it doesnt boot to safemode, taking your hardrive out and putting it inside a hardrive enclosure, then access it through another pc, then when you go to my computer go to your drive that's the bad one, then right click it and go to properties, then tools, then click error checking, then the option that says fix error if found, or something along that wording, then let it do it's thing and then put it back in your pc and try it.

I have a dead SSD i have yet to take out of my computer (mostly, because i refuse to believe it's dead) - but it's in my first SATA slot, since it doesn't recognize it, it takes forever to read the first slot - gives up, and goes to my HDD. I'm almost certain that it has a certain time fail-safe in which it just skips to the next one, seems to be exactly the same every time - Instantaneous after that, no probs with the HDD

So something's prolly dead.

On a smarter note, I'm taking out the SSD today
