Windows 7: Slow boot up/start up windows 7 home premium asus zenbook UX32VD

Slow boot up/start up windows 7 home premium asus zenbook UX32VD

Hi everyone,

I m looking for some advice and infos about a recent problem with my zenbook UX 32 VD
I should first specify the specs: core i7 @ 1.9Ghz, 10Go RAM, dedicated GeForce GT620M, windows 7 64bit (version 6.1.7601 service pack 1 built 7601)
The problem is it takes a while to boot up….between 2min and 8min with an annoying black screen before the "windows starting up" logo….it was not the case before and it should not be the case considering that windows 7 is supposed to be installed on a SSD drive.

I tried a lot of things that people talked about on internet: downloading all the latest drivers for Norton, Nvidia graphics and so on….I also used CCcleaner in case of registry errors, I did a memory test, I checked for viruses and malmware, I defragmented eveything possible, I cleaned up the drives, I restarted the computer after removing the services programs and the startup programs (using MSCONFIG)….
And it didn’t change anything, it is still freakin slow to get to the welcome menu….then the laptop works pretty fine.

I should also mention that I got no response typing F2, F8, F12 or the space bar during the long black screen when starting up the machine….which is pretty annoying too.

Looking forward for some magician to help me, cheers

If its still the bloated factory preinstalled Win7 then that is a corrupt install to begin with, larded with sponsors' crapware and useless duplicate utilities which throttle and conflict with superior versions in Win7. That's why most tech enthusiasts prefer to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to get the best possible install instead of the worst one which you have. This will also obviously solve your boot problem. Just be sure to make your Recovery disks first so you can delete all partitions during the booted reinstall.

Until then you can remediate the problem some following these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware especially establishing a Clean Boot to get the freeloaders off Win7's back, using a free lightweight AV suggested with the Win7 firewall, gradually dumping the programs you realize you don't need or want.

If you still need to troubleshoot the slow boot work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will also help familizarize you with the system resources, logs, tools, hardware tests, and best practices.
