Windows 7: Long boot time between BIOS screen and Windows

Long boot time between BIOS screen and Windows

Unusually long boot time between the BOS screen and Windows. It takes about 3 minutes to boot when restarting the PC and up to 5 minutes when starting the PC after it was previously shut down.

I will attach everything I checked, maybe I missed something, including my DxDiag and a video of the issue.

VID 20150213 100529 - YouTube

I already checked the memory by leaving Memtest overnight and it presented 0 errors. This problem started to appear about four months. I'm out of ideas. HDD is new, bought about four months ago and Processor is newer, bought in late November.

Also, maybe worth of noting, everytime I restart the PC the processor completely shuts down the fan before turning it back on. Same when I turn the PC on. I press the button, then it takes about 3-4 seconds for the PC to start running, turning the fans on etc.

Also, I tried disabling the BIOS screen a few months ago, but it didn't do anything, so I turned it back on.

Do you have both video cards installed at the same time?

While your using msconfig please post picture of Startup and Non Microsoft Services.

Hello,

Both cards are working and both use the same driver.

Here is what you requested.

I believe one problem is you have many things in Start up.

All I keep in Start up is.

I know of no reason why would would have a Tune Up Utility with Windows 7.

Does the Karaoke program need to be running in services.

I don't see a anti virus program running.
What security programs do you have?

I use TuneUp because Windows 7 seems to have a bug that noone managed to fix, which is randomly changing icons from one display to another on every startup. TuneUp forces them to stay on the main display.

I will uncheck and see what happens.

LE: Did not solve the problem.

The rest of the world uses Windows 7 without random changing icons without using a Tune Up program. Please explain how your icon are changing and when.

Windows 7 doesn't want or need a tuneup program.

Actually, others have that problem as well, and none of the fixes suggested on these pages worked:

- Desktop icons move- multiple monitors - Microsoft Community

- Desktop Icons shift when changing Multiple displays

Personally, I have 20 icons on the main display and 2 or 3 on the seocnd display. After a restart the icons are all moved on the second display, still to the left of the screen, but with the others arranged between them. For instance, if I have the 20 icons on the left of the main screen and one of those 3 icons from the second monitor is in the top left corner of the screen, then after restart the icons from the main screen are moved to the second display with the icon from the top left of the second display being dragged beneath the first and second icons from the set of 20.

This happens about 2/3 restarts.

Confusing, I know. Here are before restart and after restart pics.

Anyway, we digress. :P

I looked and I don't see any place but you last post#7 where you mentioned using dual monitors.

So let see if I got it right.

1. You use two mismatch video cards on the same driver.
2. You use two monitors.
3. You didn't answer my question on what security programs you use. Post #4. I see no anti virus program.
4. You use a Tuneup Program
5. You still have all those things in Startup and Services.
6. You use Utorrent

------------------------------------
Is that about right?

Two video cards, both with the same driver (Nvidia released the same for both cards)

Two monitors and a HDTV. TV and main display in GTX, second display in 9600GT

Sorry, I didn't see your question in post 4. Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes

Yes, I use TuneUp

Those things are LastFM which starts with Winamp, uTorrent and Display Fusion, which puts a taskbar on all 3 screens and Microsoft Security Essentials, as well as Windows Updates ready to be installed

Yes I use uTorrent
