Windows 7: VERY slow resume from hibernate

VERY slow resume from hibernate

Hi all. First-time poster here.

Ever since I copied my Windows 7 partition over to a newer laptop it has been extremely slow on resume from hibernate (or low-battery emergency shutdown, which I assume is the same thing). I mean slow on the order of like 1.5 to 2 hours or so. It boots up fine initially but the "Resuming Windows..." black-and-white loading bar simply goes up at a snail's pace. The fans also stay audibly spinning throughout the entire process as if the laptop is somehow using a lot of energy. After a couple hours the loading bar finally completes, and the computer returns to my desktop as normal with all my old stuff open and everything works fine.

Since this only started happening after the move I can't help but think something got mucked up when the partition was copied over. If possible I really don't want to go through that process again, as it was enough of a hassle the first time...or worse, having to do a fresh install.

Does anyone have any tips to fix this?

I just don`t understand why people think a clean install is a hastle, it`s the best possible thing you can do.

What was wrong with the OS that it came with it ?

Because then I would have to reinstall all my programs and everything, and reconfigure all my settings, and reorganize my whole desktop, and etc etc...I mean obviously if there's no other way I'll just have to do a clean install, or otherwise just stop hibernating my computer from now on, but if there's another, simpler option that would save me the hours and hours of setup and configuration, I'd much prefer it.

And nothing was wrong with the native OS, I just prefer to have Windows 7 when I need it so I added it as a partition.

Awwwww, Poor baby

But seriously, the whole purpose of getting a new pc is so you don`t have a bunch of crap on it, just what you need, and settings, that can be done slowly over time.

I mean I hear what you`re saying, my Z170 sat on the table for a month while I set it up, and just put it in the box, but still there was no rush.

Disable hibernate, run a sfc or just do a proper clean install.

And you copied it over from a different PC ? Yikes That`s bad

Why do you even use hibernate, just put it to sleep or turn it off

Why not turn OFF hibernation, and just use sleep

SLOW is 1.5 to 2 minutes. If instead it's Hours than it's broken. And it's not "booting up fine initially" when it sits on Resuming that long i.e. it hasn't booted yet, that is what it is struggling with.

Dunno what "partition was copied over" means exactly, but if all you did was in essence place a Windows setup from one computer onto your laptop then it is lucky that it boots at all, given your hardware is different and all the drivers are wrong (and what about the HAL).

Unless you are actually still booting from the original, and [trying to use] programs on the new? So many questions...

Did you copy the tiny service partition over also? It contains the instructions for hibernation, and if there's a GUID mismatch you're going to have trouble. If you want to repair this rather than reinstall, boot to the Win Recovery Environment (ie, a windows repair disk), then open a command window and run the commands:

bootrec / fix mbr
bootrec /fix boot
bootrec /rebuildbcd

That would be my first guess, anyway.
