Windows 7: Long Boot Time after shutdown

Could your bios settings have been changed at all?

It is the oddest thing, I can shutdown at night with no problem. I start it up and it flies. But if I start up in morning, it takes 15 minutes.
I've already turned off indexing and have Search on a delayed Start.

I could wait till tomorrow morning and do a Safe Boot, but then what?

Now going to try System Restore, and if that doesn't work, I suppose I can get back close to factory with the backup dvd's I created?

I'd work backwards with System Restore, then if you need to recovery to factory condition run the Recovery Partition from Windows or boot after backing up your data.

The disks should be reserved for HD failure or if partition fails, since they replace the Recov partition itself too.

You can also consider a clean reinstall to get beyond the factory bloatware and useless utlities which have better versions built into Win7: re-install windows 7

I didn't change Bios, unless something changed it. And with this anomaly of it only happening in the morning, something must be scheduled, correct? Or is it doing a whole pagefile thing? Can I see all schedules for the system somewhere?

I should mention that I have a partition D drive that came that way

Type task scheduler in start search box, click Task Scheduler Library on left to see all tasks to reschedule or disable.

Did you run through the troubleshooting steps from my first post?

How is System Restore progressing?

Yes, system restore would get all the wat to the end, and then give a D:/... / rescache error.

I ended up doing a factory restore from Recovery Manager on the Compaq. Fine now

I am having a similar issue. I have a Dell Vostro3700 with 6GB ram and a 500GB SATA 7200RPM hard-drive. I recently installed a WD My Book MODEL:WDBACW0010HBK back up hard drive. The startup has been taking about 10 times as long since I installed this. I also received a Problem: Video Hardware Error message with the problem files being:
WD-20110109-1350.dmp
sysdata.xml
WERInternalMetadata.xml

I did not open the "view a temporary copy of these files" when it asked if I would like to.

Does anyone know if this could all be caused from the external hard drive or could all of this be a coincidence?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Does the startup problem exist if you disconnect the external? If not then move the data off, wipe and reformat using free Partition Wizard bootable CD: http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html

If you had a bluescreen stop error then zip up the bugcheck file and post in Crashes and Debugging forum here for one of the real geniuses to solve: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

I re-booted the machine with the external drive disconnected. It booted up normal. I am not extremely technically savy. I have free support with the Western Digital drive. Should I call them and have them walk me through what you are describing. Also I set the backup up through the control panel and the WD drive came with a backup software program. Should I maybe try to set it up through the provided software rather than the windows system?

Thanks for you help.

If you've confirmed that the external is slowing the bootup, then what I would do next is move any files you need saved off the external, then wipe it (to get any boot code off), create and format a new partition.

You can do all of this using free partition Wizard linked earler or use Diskpart to Clean All the external: Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command then create and format using Disk Mgmt: Partition or Volume - Create New

If you don't need the scheduled backup then I would manually drag your active User folders (Documents, Pictures, etc) to the external to back them up.
