Windows 7: long boot time... maybe drivers...

15 Sep 2010   #31

Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit

so i downgraded my RAM by removing that extra 2GB... Now i have only Chrome installed and it's pretty stable... at least i don't see any problems except that it's so slow... slower than my experience with xp before... any tips for that? oh yeah, i haven't tried that boottrace...

Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit

hello again!

as of now, my laptop is pretty stable... it only has this chrome installed with the rest of the default win7 home basic applications from the default factory settings...

oh and btw, it boots fast... i'm still verifying if my laptop can hold up its stability for like another day or so... i hope it does! (",)

concerning that boot trace, i actually downloaded it and installed it into my laptop, i did the boot option there but my laptop then went restarting over and over again... i opted the startup repair which fixed it... when i booted successfully to win7, windows told me that the error was a blue screen... so there... i can't use that tool for now...

although i was able to boot fast, this thing bothers me: when i click on START -> All Programs, the whole thing is slow... first a blank... then the texts... then the icons in a white paper like picture... then the real icons show up one batch at a time...

Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit

hey richc46, did i mention that i used the scanning thing to the classpnp.sys driver? well, it's ok... i just thought that i forgot to tell you there's nothing wrong with it... it's just the screen stuff for the safe mode boot which is taking a long time before... now it's quite ok...

so i've been working with aquarian's plan of installing one application at a time... so far, i'm in a hurry and able to install chrome, vlc media player, and foxit reader... i found that whenever i opened my winrar application, which doesn't need a reinstall, my laptop just goes slow... so i downloaded the latest one which is the 3.93 64-bit version... and it goes just fine...

so the culprit was the unupdated winrar application... i do hope i'll be able to install the other apps as well with the stability i have now...

Are you still running on 2GB ram?

I wouldnt change that for now but it may have been an issue.

hi, I personally use 7z for all compressed files. I will also recommend CCleaner for cleaning your registry and HD
both are free and light weight and - Download Free Software is my no1 site for best free apps.

Btw. What is your hd, SSD is a good way to speed up a slow laptop(if u have 100 quid)

Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit

@aquarian: I'm currently running on 2GB only... not 4GB anymore since I removed that extra 2GB... not really an issue...

@mike009: yeah, winrar3.93 64-bit is good enough for me already... thanks for the suggestion... the record of the CCleaner application for my win7 removed some registry values... i kinda liked it when i had xp but i can't confirm its compatibility with win7... last time i used it with win7, i had to use the startup repair... And i'm also planning to buy a memory stick for the readyboost functionality... they say it's very useful...

i have installed other appplications as well and my laptop is slow to respond now... i'm gonna do that xbootmgr again... but below is the boot trace i had BEFORE...

MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

i'll post my current boot trace afterwards...

Question on your trace - it appears that userinit started at the 30.5 second mark, and your explorer.exe shell at 30.9 seconds. Are you saying you don't see explorer or the shell at ~30 seconds after boot? I also see werfault.exe loading multiple times after processes end (most notably 3 other explorer.exe's), so I'm wondering specifically what you have installed. Also, I see a ton of readyboost misses and fltmgr.sys and ntfs.sys hits throughout this whole boot, including some very high CPU and disk I/O from the system (kernel representation) process.

If I didn't know any better, I'd say you have installed a filter driver that doesn't like something about your system when it goes above 2GB perhaps.

Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit

thanks for the analysis... i don't understand all of it though but i'll try to tell you what i understood from that.. so you mean i installed a program that my laptop can't handle... then because of that, it generates many misses on readyboost and other fltmgr.sys, ntfs.sys, high cpu, and i/o errors... and yes, i see my wallpaper around 35 sec... btw, i've PM'd you the second boottrace link... i think this analysis is the 1st one since it has the 35 sec boot... the 2nd boottrace is a bit problematic... a simple analysis of it will do since i already formatted my laptop to factory default with recovery disks... i won't be able to heal it 'cause i resurrected it hahaha... at least it's good to know why...thanks again cluberti!
