Samsung EVO 250GB SSD booting problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As i have mentioned i have Samsung EVO 250GB. When i turn on my machine it takes about 10 sec to boot Windows 7 but it takes around a minute to load the Samsung magician software.Until the magician software loads i'm unable to open any of my programs,games etc. but i can go to any folder i want.. Give me a suggestion without re-installing my OS. I"m using it on my sig rig.

Also i could have accidentally done two mistakes but i don't whether it would be the reason.First i defragmented my registry not the drive and the other was i turned off my machine a few times(15-20 times) without properly shutting it down.

It sounds to me like you have 3 options:

 

  1. System Restore
  2. Delete Samsung Magician out of the Start Menu Startup folder
  3. Format and start over and this time do NOT defrag the registry and never turn the computer off like that

 

Why did you defrag the registry?

 

Why did you turn the computer off like that?

It's a computer!

Why did you defrag the registry?

The first two options didn't work and i'm hesitant in using the third because i'm mid way through in most of my games(actually 7).


1.About defragging the registry,my tune-up utilities did that and after that i disabled it.

2.Sometimes i would be gaming on battery power(power cut), i would not notice it(unintentionally) because of me using headphones.

There are easy ways to save your Game Saves. ;) For most games (if not all), it's just a matter of saving a folder that contains your saved games. However, I doubt that System Restore would result in you losing your game progress.

Tune-up utilities? What are you using?

 

Programs like that usually cause more problems than they solve - especially if they mess with the Registry.

Oh. From now on, every time Windows gets shut down improperly, always make sure to choose Restart from the Start Menu after you start Windows back up.

Retrieving all the saved games is actually a nightmare but it's a comprise i'm willing to do.

It's actually a good optimization software if you handle it well which i have learned by now.

TwoCables, I believe he is using TuneUp Utilities from AVG.
I wouldn't recommend using it to be honest, it is known to contain malware and the like. You are better off doing the things that it does using specific utilities (like inbuilt disk defragmentation tools) and doing the rest yourself with proper assistance from forums like these.
