I have updated drivers & have updated BIOS.

Boot order in BIOS
SATA CD: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SN-208BB
SATA HDD: SAMSUNG HN-M500MBB
USB CD
USB FDD
USB HDD
NETWORK

Also in Disk Mgt, for my HD there is no option for MBR or GPT , you can check in the snap http://oi46.tinypic.com/detf90.jpg

That means it is an MBR disk which is what I was looking for. I don't think UEFI is at issue here.

When you feel you've exhausted all of the steps given then I would proceed with the trace to get a definitive cause. Upload the results file to a server like Skydrive (free with each WIndows Live ID) and link it in the tutorial comments section to get expert analysis from the top expert in the field and author of the trace. Carl is cleaning up from the storm in NY so may take a few days to get back to you.

I have posted my boot trace file in the forum which you gave me.
Hope someone might help me in finding out the right solution.

Thanks for your help

Jaguar85: please provide a Speccy report -> use PUBLISH from the file menu and post the link you're given

Please also provide a snapshot of an expanded Display Adapters in Device Manager

For both the Nvidia and the Intel - uninstall, remove all software if prompted

reboot, do NOT install any drivers
Yes, your screen will be the default 800x600
work in that mode until a solution is reached - sorry, I know.....

I want to see what inf files are around before you run any updates.
There is only one graphics adapter on your machine, but it thinks there are two.

edit: according to essenbe, some Samsung models do have two controllers. hmm, imagine that.


I'll look at the Speccy report once you post the link

and it would help a lot if your system specs were filled in - use the easy system spec link in my sig so you don't have to type all of the information. Please make sure the make and model are correct - thanks

I realize the focus of the thread has gone in a specific direction, but I've just come upon it (via the 'More Help' thread) and I'm a little curious about the first few posts. So...

Out of the 7 months you've had it, how long have you had this issue?

These are often set up to run after boot via Scheduled Tasks. Often considered bloatware anyway.

After checking for virus I have un-installed all antivirus, right now I don't have any anti-virus so there is no point that antivirus is increasing boot time.
That's quite a collection, some of which I wouldn't use with w7. After uninstall, did you also run the removal tool that's often provided by the makers (ie, Norton Removal Tool). Make sure SpyBot's TeaTimer was also removed. SpyBot also adds a slew of entries into the HOSTS file; you might consider removing them as I've heard this has an impact (not really sure how much though as it's been years since I've used it, and when removing from other machines there's typically a lot more stuff that's getting removed along with it -- you can always make a copy of it first in case you want to restore, it works the same whether SpyBot is installed or not).

I'll take your assumption that you're malware free, but just because you had the above programs does not guarantee it.

System Restore

See if there are any damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Another possibility is application conflicts at startup. Perform a clean boot (aka clean startup.)

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

If none of the above helps you may want to go through these troubleshooting guides for startup issues and general troubleshooting issues. They are time consuming but have helped isolate problems for many people.

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7
I'm aware you've done some of the above. Did you consider the system restore or do the sfc /scannow?

Everything depends on RAM. It's a worthwhile test.

Is there a Samsung program onboard that allows you to change between the two graphics controllers? Check all of them in All Programs.

This reminds me that with the sketchy tools and methods you reported using, I would strongly consider making your Recovery Disks in order to wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. This is always a vastly superior install to the corrupting factory preinstall with it's larded on Bloatware and useless duplicate utiltiies. We specialize in helping with these here so will have your back every step of the way.

Greg: I don't think there are two controllers. essenbe has a desktop or a tower.

The Speccy report will tell - the Samsung site / manual is no help. They list all the mfrs & models they put in any machine. Without detailed information, I'm just whistlin'

After F5ing and your posts, my trying to determine what the machine has in it,
I think the best thing for jaguar85 is to go clean.

Hey F5ing, the problem is from last 40-50 days.
And regarding antivirus, I have installed it later to check whether I had virus or any malware.
I have done sfc/scan and it couldn't find any corrupt file.
I haven't done Restore as my Restore point is quite old.
