Windows 7: Occasional slow boot time despite using an SSD.

Occasional slow boot time despite using an SSD.

I have been using a Samsung 830 SSD for a few months for my laptop.

However, occasionally the boot times tend to be slow, as it spins at the "Welcome" screen for quite some time.

Is there any way to troubleshoot this ?

Yup TRIM is enabled on my laptop.

Will try to run SFC now

Ray take a look at the link below It might help you speed up the SSD

Hopefully you updated the firmware before you did a install

Thanks for the link, I came across it before when I was installing my SSD

My SSD firmware is the latest version. Based on Samsung Magician software lol.

Open Samsung Magician and make sure you have clicked "over provisioning" "OS and performance optimization"

Then download Download CrystalDiskMark 3.0.2f Free - A small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive - Softpedia

If your mobo supports 6g - make sure the SSD is in that port (Usually port one).

Like what are we talking here? One second, ten seconds, a minute longer?

Post an old and new boot log entry and your start ups so we can see if it's Session 1 or Session 2 that may be causing a problem. There's a whole slue of things that can cause a slow boot. Guessing and tweaking blind takes too much time.

@PSCO2007 : Crystaldiskinfo is stating my SSD as 100% good condition. I updated the Samsung Magician software to v4.0, and now it states that there is insuffcient diskspace for over-provisioning ?! I recalled that there is some over-provisioning when the software is v3.2.

My SSD still has 89GB free.. That's still a reasonable amount I guess..

@carwiz : By boot logs, do you mean the auto-generated ntbtlog.txt ?

These will be *.EVTX files. Click the Orb, type Event then select Event Viewer.

Expand: Applications and Services Logs
>Microsoft
>Windows
>Diagnostics-Performance
Select Operational

In the lower-center pane, click on the Details tab. This will display Windows Boot times by major steps. You can click on the Copy in the right pane to copy the data as a text file then post it here.

The screen will look something like this.

Forgot to mention: In the upper-center pane, you'll need to select a recent Event ID 100 entry. If you can find one that's about the time of your lag, it would help. Also check one from an earlier date to see if there is a large change in "Boot Time" shown in the list.

By the way, Even ID 200 records are shutdown times.

I use a different program (mentioned on this forum), but following your method there is no boot time entry.
