Windows 7: Windows 7 Pro x64 Slow Start - Monitor Sleeps then Wakes

10 Sep 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

It sounds like you are getting to grips with the problem. These things are never straight forward but sometimes just discussing the problem helps you to see it more clearly. Most people just learn to live with these things but I never can, even if I don't get them solved. Things I have learned are: 1. Contrary to popular opinion a virus is rarely the cause, 2. often the fault has multiple causes, and 3. problems get solved but you are never certain what you did. Oh, 4. installing software to tweak your system will likely cause future problems.
When you get sorted do a weekly disc image backup. Restoring an image solves the majority of problems without hassle.

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1

I've been using system restore to fix issues that pop-up out of nowhere. I make "Good System Check Points" regularly and delete old restore points. It's the lazy man's way to troubleshoot. My OS was a clean install at the end of April and I've accumulated a lot of errors and warnings in the Windows Log Files. I decided to fix everything. Unfortunately, not everything can be fixed at the user level. I've got two issues that need software drivers updated by the manufacturer. Motorola needs to fix their Bluetooth driver so not to cause COM Add-in issues with MS Office and magicJack needs to fix the driver so it will load on a Win 7 platform without causing warnings and failed installs. The Motorola issue will be the toughest, because the device is an accessory for an Intel board and Intel is not too concerned about it.

Thanks again for the info you posted.

System Restore is far from perfect, and it doesn't backup and restore everything.
Get an 1 TB external hard drive,from $50. Best go for a mains powered if you can, from $100, and free backup and imaging software such as Macrium Reflect. If you get a Western Digit hard drive you get, or did anyway, free Acronis True Image. My choice.
