ANNOYING: Windows 7 "Welcome" - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Does it get very very slow and take forever to get into windows? If so.. i suggest you check your sata cable.. it could mean it's going bad soon. Something like this happened to me before and it always got slow for some strange reason and then like a few days later it got stuck at welcome windows 7 and i realized i had a sata dying on me. So i replaced it with the ones i got in my motherboard box and it booted right away into windows faster than i usually have. Could be a bad case of sata cable or... you got a anti virus program slowing something down at start up perhaps? Check if it's sata.

Thanks for the help guys.

PROBLEM SOLVED! Of course it was because of Apple...go figure lol.

I plugged my iPhone in for the first time to charge and I guess that is what was causing the delay. No idea why but it fixed once I unplugged the phone itself (the cord is always plugged in). It could be because it's plugged into the USB on my monitor but idk, it's fixed!

Yea some USB devices slow down the startup significantly. Sometimes, if I leave my external hard drive plugged in, it'll take 4-5 minutes to boot up when it normally takes ~30 seconds
