Windows 7: SSD boot time slowed, Error ID 109 in EventViewer. Please Help?

SSD boot time slowed, Error ID 109 in EventViewer. Please Help?

Hello all, I seem to have quite an annoying issue here. My samsung 830 ssd (256 gb) was working excellently and last night for some reason it decided to no longer boot at the nice speed at which it did before.

Now I believe it is still performing up to par in the OS environment due to my AS SSD score being 724, although I have not seen many others to compare to.

Now down to business.

The system originally would boot in a time of 15-16 seconds. however, after this error:

The boot time jumped to around 30 seconds.
The error occurred yesterday night, and I believe I played around with Samsung's SSD Magician Utility, allowed it to "Optimize" the OS, however I am not sure if this was at the time of the reported error

Here is what I've tried so you may dismiss possible solutions

-Flash Bios
-Update SSD Firmware (was already the Latest)
-Re-Optimize through SSD Magician
-Disable Prefetch and Superfetch in regedit
-Unplug My optical Drive from the SATA3 port
-Unplug the SSD, allow the system to enter bios, turn off, then plug in again, to no avail.
-Lastly I uninstalled SSD Magician hoping that the program was the cause of the error, yet that is a no as well.


Hopefully someone will be able to help me out, without the solution a fresh install

Never heard of SSD Magician, and anything we've never heard of here is usually not good.

You also do not want to disable SuperPreFetch which is the premiere genius feature in Windows 7. If you're doing tweaks like this you should consider following these Best Practices to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall .

In the mean time you can establish a clean boot, check the logs and System Resources, test your hardware and other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

As long as you play around with those so called 'Optimizers", you can expect trouble.

Off hand it is not clear what exactly could be the cause of your problem. But you may want to check the alignment. See here under "Verification" : SSD Alignment

PS: Disabling superfetch is a mistake.

do you have any idea what the problem is though? what could cause boot time to jump from 16 seconds to 30?

Also, the drive was booting at 16s with superprefetch disabled so are you sure that's causing problems?

Superprefetch is not to be messed with, either way.

I'd look first at freeloaders starting with Windows 7. Only allow your AV to start up with Windows.

Then check the logs and system resources for clues in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

As a last resort if you want a definitive answer try Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums

You have to attach your pictures with the paper clip.

I am going to do a clean install because re-enabling fixed nothing. How can I do this so it will wipe everything so I can expect the problem to be gone?

Follow these reinstall Best Practices closely to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - the steps are the same for retail and everything you need is in the link.

To get the HD cleanest boot the DVD Command line first to run Diskpart Clean Command.
