Here's what happened :

I went from Vista to 7 home premium without any trouble and installed my usual programs. Then my computer started crashing with some IRQL less or equal BSOD errors while I was downloading files (>3mbps). The problem persisted (but had no effect at all on speed during startup) and I grew a bit tired of it so I chose to follow the system's advice to troubleshoot the startup. Since then, my computer started taking over 15 minutes to boot and even though I scrolled countless threads, I managed to fail resolving the problem. Then I though that I maybe had messed up something in the OS so I reinstalled, making sure that I had formatted everything. The problem is that the startup is stil WAY slower than what it used to be : from a startup time of 45s before the troubleshoot (when i went from vista to 7) to around 4minutes. I tried starting with minimal settings and it still takes over 2 minutes...
Just in case it can give an insight to anyone, the startup lags at the "windows starting (with the pulsing flag) and then right after I put my PW in to log.

ESET's system inspector tells me that my drivers are fine and my windows index is still the same at 4.6. Windows troubleshoots detect no problem whatsoever.

All in all, I just don't get what's wrong with my lappy, so I'm asking for help !

Thanks all in advance


On the slim chance do you have a backup from before the problem that we can restore from? do you have a working win 7 dvd to do a repair install?
