Windows 7: Long booting

Long booting

Guys, I'm just curious. I got AMD Phenom II X4 940, 4Gb Ram, 1Tb HDD and so on, 2 months old Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, no unnecessary programs. The system is very light. But why I get such an awful result?



I noticed that boot time is veeeery long. How can it be speeded up?

Is this after you log in?
If so, go to start, then type msconfig.
Then go to startup and tell me what is there

Well, no. When system starts first time it hangs on a little at this screen:



And it hangs on for about 10 - 15 sec.

Ok, when you go to your bios, is hard drive put in the first spot in boot order?

Was it always slow to boot up? If not, first check for malware and viruses.

If all is clean AND since you are running a quad core processor, do this:

MSCONFIG (at command prompt)
Click on BOOT tab
Click on ADVANCED OPTIONS
Check the box NUMBER OF PROCESSORS
SELECT 4
Click OK and you are finished.

Ideally, it should take you about 15-20 seconds to boot up.

My solution is still good. But from your screen capture, it's slowing at the bios stage, which has nothing to do with the operating system.

Jose is quite correct.
Your bios may also have a quick boot mode.

Yes, it is. My HDD on which sits the system is the first in boot order.

Okay, thanks for the tip. I tried it out, but yes, no changes. Bwaah, 80 is just too much for such system.

I was hoping the same, but when I built this PC I remember that there was no option like that.

Anyway, here are some pics from BIOS:

your second picture shows your cd rom is the first boot device. move this to second, and move hard disk up to first
the reason it would be hanging at that screen would be because it is seeking for a cd to boot from. if you have a disk in that drive, it'll try to boot from it, which will make it boot slower to your system.

I think there is a troublshooting program called driver verifier that will show you what drivers are loading and how long they take... Driver Verifier in Windows 7

I don't know if this is the correct program for this, but you might have a driver that is taking to long or failing during boot.

Edit: I have not used this tool, but I have seen it used on this forum for BSOD's on startup. I hope I am right to suggest this. Please read info on MS page and ask questions if you have any concerns.

Your first boot device, according to your screen capture, is CD-ROM. Change that to HD.
HPET is 32-bit. Are you running 64-bit?

Disable parallel port (unless you are using it)
