Hi guys!

i havent had time to do the test following your instructions

i am going to perform it now


but after that i want to ask/tlak to you something...

the 4 laptops i am dealing with...one of them is i5 2.6ghz and 2gb of ram, all the other threes are i7 2.7 and 4gb

i am seriously thinking to keep one of these for me.. i wanted one of the i7 for sure.. but the i5 is the same and sometimes faster than the i7...
why is that?

Yeah, that seems to happen. I have observed that a few times too. No idea why.

Run ProcessMonitor again and choose "yes" when you see the prompt asking if you want to view collected data.

You should save the dump in C:\Windows and you'd need to save with the .PML extension.

Personally I'd suspect that a driver is the issue especially with a BSOD. I'm not expert on BSOD's.

EDIT:

Also see the tutorial for checking boot using event viewer (create custom view)

Boot Times - Monitor with Event Viewer

I suspect that you'd need to focus on Event ID 102

For a little more detail on usage read here:

Use Windows 7 Event Viewer to track down issues that cause slower boot times - TechRepublic

Regarding ProcessMonitor. Once you have a boot log you probably need to filter it to look at drivers. (Guessing it's a driver issue)

Tools> File Summary> By Extension

choose .sys

Check the results list for any issues.
i used event viewer.. there is not event 102

in process monitor
in file summary the ones that has more events are the ativirus and the firewal antimalware.. and none of those are the cause because the issue became before installing those

what a did encounter in event viewer was many errors regarding WMI

you know what.. i am suspecting strongly of a windows update...
is not video driver, because one of the laptop has a diferent video chipset, is nto any software because the problm arise before installing any software... i suspected of the soudndriver but i already uninstalled with no different result...

the reason why i thought or i was thinking it was a driver... is because i was installing drivers almost parallel to the updates installs that's why i relate drivers to this...

Did you create a custom view as described and include 101-110 in the Includes/Excludes Event IDs box?

yes i did it
i also tried the following

i removed everything form the startup (using msconfig), boot time was reduced in about secs, so tthe problem wasnt there

i uninstalled the update kb2621440 (i read some users having increased boot time after that update)
no difference

just after entering to the desktop i note a huge activity in the HDD i rapidly open resource monitor and the activities i saw using the hdd was, backup (even when it is disabled in service), WMI, audiodg.exe svchost... i disabled all (but svchost) and no difference

i disabled windows audio, audio service and windows audio endpoint bouldend....
no difference

i disabled wmi with security center and ip helper...
no difference

i disabled all non MS service

no difference

The problem is caused by renesas usb 3.0 host controller, specifically, the hub controller

i catch the problem by installing again a another laptop of the same....

the startup time from pressin the power button to windows desktop sound and zero hdd activity was 35 secs
after in installed the usb HUB driver then the time raised to 1m 20 sec

now i have uninstalled everything regarging the renesas usb3.0 diver and the startup time is 1minute

why?

it is like if the driver cause the probelm but not the driveritself, it looks like the driver changed some configurations in order to properly works.. but when uninstalled... then it didnt roll back the setting that increased the boot time

what do you think?
