2600k rig takes up to 3 minutes to boot! - Page 2

post #11 of 49
its not the 7200rpm drive that causing this , its something else like maybe the sata ports ? something in your startup folder ... or maybe it could be a faulty HDD .

all i know is , my rig takes about 15 seconds to boot onto my desktop fully loaded up ready to go from when i press the power button .. with an old 10k raptor drive 3gb/s

if i was using an ssd , it would be faster too .

id check to see if another HDD fixes ur problemo , might be your ram ? could be many things ..

is there an option in your bios called quick boot ? enable it if so .

And that most likely corrected your performance issues, no?

Based on the times taken for each step in the boot up process, Windows and the hard drive are busy doing something else when you are trying to open Chrome.

You mentioned this was a fresh installation, Windows may still be indexing the drive as well. Either way an SSD WILL improve your boot times in this situation.

Just finished de-fragmenting the drive. Here is the benchmark of it now. Is it fine for a 1TB WD 7200rpm Drive?

Windows Boot Logo: 0:38
Login Screen: 0:52
Desktop appears: 1:07
Google Chrome opens and Google.ca is loaded: 2:43
-- From this point onwards, the desktop is snappy / smooth and stuff opens instantly. The Hard Drive light is no longer blinking --

I want to my self ... Is this normal? Using sig rig.


Other notes:
This is the following software I have on start up (All open up in the background and are in the system tray hidden).
- Windows Live Messenger
- Nvidia Updater
- Logitech Gaming Software
- ESET NOD32 Antivirus 5.0 (3 user license)
- WhatPulse
- OneNote
- Dropbox
- MSI Afterburner and On-Screen Display
For one, your graphics card isn't a major influence on how long your computer takes to start up.

You need to buy an ssd which have no mechanical parts in them, which means they are durable and reliable. They are expensive still but on some websites you can find 120gb's for a nice price.

With the ssd you only need to put on Windows 7 (OS) and your main applications that you use everyday e.g Chrome, Games and other major apps.

Also those apps running on startup will affect your startup time as well, remove them from start up expect for the Anti-Virus and Nvidia updater.

Hope this helps!

This is my seagate 1TB 7200rpm drive



Do you have your HDD connected in the sata 6gb/s ports ? or the normal sata 3gb/s ports .

Looks pretty dismal, actually. Are you running in AHCI or IDE mode? I'm guessing IDE by the looks of things. That graph should start closer to 150mb/s, definitely more than 100mb/s.

If you do have it set to IDE, remember that when changing to AHCI it requires either a. another re-format, or b. some registry changes.

One other thing: Don't let these guys tell you it's "normal" and that you "need to buy an SSD" to get somewhat reasonable boot times. YOU DON'T. I have a tiny 250gb Caviar Blue that will boot to a fully loaded Vista in ~ 1 minute. Something else is wrong here. What, I'm not sure.

I'm on ACHI and the drive is a 3GB/s drive but it is plugged into a 6GB/s port (marvel controller). I believe there are three: Intel, JMicron and Marvel.

SSD my friend .... i can probably do the same thing in like 10-15 seconds boot ... and then click on the google.ca takes around 2-3 seconds?

I m exaggerating a bit on the boot times...but yeah its pretty quick....but the google.ca is really 2-3 seconds...
