sudden slow boot up time

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,

I booted my pc up this morning, to find my pc hanging big time on the post screen(hit del or F2 screen)

It normally boots after about 3 seconds, but this morning its just took around 30 seconds.

No updates or that or anything different was done yesterday to warrant this, - yesterday it booted up fine.

Is there a way of checking what's went wrong?

Thanks

Paul

Hello,

Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer.

Hi, I don't know what I am looking for when I do this

Device manager sows that the drive is working ok.

If it means anything, my pc will not read discs just now either, - its a brand new drive.

Wait. You said that it hangs on the post screen, but actually it is just slower than usual. Was it just a one time event, this morning, or does it happen with all startups?

What I would do is to remove the power from the SSD to see if that is the problem. When that gets you past the post screen fast, then you found the problematic device.

You can do the same with other (USB) devices. Remove them to see if any of them gets you by the post screen.

Note: I have a PC with a USB keyboard/mouse combo that is slow sometimes, or even require me to reboot. Something to do with detection.

BTW: What PC hardware do you have?

I think my dvd drive is the problem, I removed the power from each of my ssd's one at a time and no difference, I then unplugged my cd drive and altouh boot was considerably faster, it was stillslower tan normal (even with boot time in bios being 1 sec)

sooo I changed the cd drive to my old one(*that was rattling its head off) and its booted normally.

this new drive is only 3 weeks old, - its also funny that I ave a problem updating my canon 350d software from disc(old version is xp and I cant install tat as im on W7, so I need to update it with the disc in the drive)

so it kinda makes sense.


To add my bios is 1908 and had no issues prior(recently anyway)

That is a pretty sweet setup you have there. Time for a drive replacement under warranty it seems wink.gif

thanks.

I have a replacement drive coming today, while i was there i thought i would change my mobo and g card aswell. current card is a gtx 670 ftw, a brutal card imho. so a 670 sig is coming. shoyld be easier to clean.

bios settings are on fast boot with 1 second delay.

although now the (faulty) drive is bacj in its booting fine!! hence why i am changing the mobo also.
