Windows 7: Slow boot along with aero lag

Slow boot along with aero lag

Hi guys this is my first post here. I have browsed the forum tons in the past. Any who onto my issue.

I built my computer about a year ago.

CPU: Intel i7-2600k sandy bridge 3.4 quad core
MOBO: Asus Sabertooth P67 (Updated to latest 3602 bios)
GPU: AMD HD 6970 x2 (Updated to ltest 13.4 drivers)
MEMORY: Corsair Vengence 16 GB
POWER SUPPLY: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000
HARD DISK: 1) OCZ Vertex 3 120 GB 2) Hitachi 1TB GST Deskstar

For the last year or so everything has been working 100% ultra fast as I designed it. Up until about a week ago I began noticing lag with aero. When I opened/closed/minimized windows the animations moved in slow motion. I checked all the windows updates and my video card drivers everything was up to date. On restart I then noticed the computer was taking forever to boot. The lights in the windows logo move at snail speed. What used to be a 15 second boot now takes roughly 1 minute and a half. SO I began researching. Heres a list of things ive done/tried:
  • Ran all the troubleshooters I could for windows everything came back with no errors.
  • Reverted back to old driver for video card problems persisted
  • I had firmware issues with the SSD in the past so I wiped the SSD using Parted Magic and updated the firmware. Reinstalled windows and the problem persisted.
  • I then did away with the SSD all together and installed on the 1TB...problem persisted.
  • I undid crossfire on the video card and tried single and tried swapping the two in case a card was going bad...problem persisted
  • ran memtest86 twice passed both times without errors
  • Double checked all the connections and plugs which all were fine
  • ran numerous different performance testing software all which did not yield any errors
  • generated a system health report and got tv_configMgrErr43 and a error 52

Symptom: tv_ConfigMgrErr43
Cause: A device has a configuration problem that prevents it from working properly.
Details: The device, Unknown Device, is reporting "tv_ConfigMgrErr43". This device will not be available until the issue is resolved. The Plug and Play ID for this device is USB\VID_0000-PID_0000\6-DF2EE03-0-1.
Resolution: 1. Verify the correct driver is installed.
2. Try updating the drivers using Windows Update.
3. Check with the manufacturer for an updated driver.
4. Attempt to uninstall and then reinstall the device using Device Manager.

not to sure what these apply to, but windows is fully updated.

Device Degradation Time : 466ms


I've run into a dead end and am not sure what to try next. The only things next I can think of is possibly something with the MOBO or Power supply, but its strange because aside from those problems the computer works normal. Im open to any ideas or suggestions. Im sure theres some small stuff along the way I may have left out.

Thanks in advance

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to gather more clues and go over your system completely.

Note that you need at least 6-8 passes or overnight for RAM Test with Memtest86+

If nothing turns up you can trace it by Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums

Ok I went through the list of things in the troubleshooting link. Most I already did. The SFC /Scannow was good too. I did the traces here are my links

Boot Trace Zip: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ot%20Trace.zip
Shutdown Trace: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...REGISTRY_1.etl
Reboot Trace Zip (Got a BSOD during this which startup repair had to fix): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ot%20Trace.zip

The last time I ran memtest86 I did it for about 5 hrs. Im going to rerun it again overnight. Is it a big difference using memtest86 vs memtest86+?

Thanks again in advance

I've been working a project and missed this thread. I'll try to download the files if they still exist on the share later this evening.

Well I confirmed it is not the video cards. I installed a old Nvidia card I had in another computer. All the same problems still exist. I attempted to play a game today to see if it would run and the game menu works fine, but anything that is graphic intensive lags so bad. Its like everything is on slow motion.

So far imo I can rule out the GPU's and the Hard rives because ive swapped/tested with other parts and issue persisted.
I dont have a power supply to test, but im not getting any error lights on mobo like when I intentionally leave something unplugged I get a light.

Any one have any suggestions on how to troubleshoot the mobo to rule it in or out?
should i be considering any type of failure on the CPU or would i not even be able to still run the computer if it failed some how?

I'd take out a stick of RAM to see if the prob persists. Then try the other one. Blow out the slots with compressed air. Run memtest86 overnight to stress it.

Compare the install you did with the tips for a perfect install found in Clean Reinstall
which are the same for retail. If it varied much - especially the handling of drivers - then I'd redo it from those steps to get a baseline perfect install which is a specialty of these forums we've helped tens of thousands of users do.

Well on the 2nd stick of ram the boot time still seemed like it took a while, however once it was loaded i reloaded aero and the computer seems to be running fast again no lag problems games are working at full speed now as well. So i guess perhaps need to order new ram. what could have been the cause you think just a bad stick?


UPDATE: Restarted computer and now its back to the same lag. didnt change the ram still same stick left out

do i need to look at the motherboard having problems with the ram then? ive gone through the sticks of ram leaving each one out once and still am getting the lag. did nothing different the one time it fixed it self. same stick of ram now still causing the lag
