Slow boot/ random slow things in windows...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok so I overclocked my CPU to 4.20GHz just earlier today, and when I was playing L4D2 my computer just shut down and rebooted. I then acknowledged that something with the overclock had to cause this. So I tried clearing the CMOS and then for some reason my system took forever to POST and go through the Windows weird splash page (with the dots and etc..). when I could finally get on my login page the weird thing is that windows take forever to open (They start with haste, but it looks like the Window is "loading" onto my screen)

I then tried setting the CMOS to "optimized defaults" via the BIOS and the same thing still happens?

It may sound funny, but check your power settings in windows. My SSD was slow to shut down, and found out that on power settings advanced, my drive was set to turn off in 20 mins. I changed that to never, fixed the problem.

That has nothing to do with a failed overclock and subsequent slow start-up. Windows can't even invoke power settings until the OS is booted--these problems are happening before that.

OP--have you verified proper BIOS settings after hitting the CMOS reset button? I mean, go in and verify that your CPU and RAM (and whatever else) are at stock (or what they should be at)?

One other thing could be hard drive corruption (easily caused by an unstable overclock). If you boot into windows, run chkdsk.

Have you tried booting into safe mode? Does the same slow boot happen?

Doing all these things the "windows" problem is "better". They pop up quicker than before. But the splash screen with the 4 balls still goes slow (the balls pause at points) and the windows still aren't as fast as they were before....

UPDATE:

I have tried reinstalling Windows Ultimate x64 and the same things happen. The splash like screen goes slow as hell, windows pop up slower than anticipated, and also splash screens of games (Like Bioshock2) go slow as well.....

Have you tried using different device drivers? I have noticed over time that certain drivers, specifically gfx drivers most of the time, have a big effect on my windows load time--it's mostly anecdotal, and I don't have a sound scientific method of testing it, but did you install a new driver for something before you started having these problems? Also, did windows start up super-slow even before you did your driver installs, or only after you got everything configured as you wanted?

It could be a dying hard drive? Have you tried running HDTune and performing the drive check for errors and whatnot--so see if the drive is in good health? I'd say if the problem still persisted after a clean install of the OS, then it might be hard drive related (or maybe motherboard, though I wouldn't know exactly how to narrow that down just yet).

Nope, I remember degrading from AMDs 10.10e WAY before the system shutdown. Though now I am on 10.12a.

RIGHT After I reinstalled Windows I noticed the same results. Slow Windows Splash screen, etc...

I will try that now....

Ok nothing came up on HDTune and now funny thing, game performance is sucking too! It isn't really noticeable at most points but sometimes the game feels like I am going in slo-mo or something! What the hell is going on!

What's your HD Tune looking like? My SSD drops to a minimum of like 80Mb/s which I don't think is normals but it's still averaging ~180Mb/s read times with .1ms latency.
