Windows 7: Problem with bootup time on win7 via SSD, BSOD, Monitor issues

Problem with bootup time on win7 via SSD, BSOD, Monitor issues

Hi guys,

Just joined the forum hopefully you can help me out.

Bit of context I've built a new pc and everything has been working perfectly for the past 2 weeks. All of a sudden today I've had a few issues, I've tried troubleshooting but been unsuccessful so far.


I got the BSOD a couple of times trying to boot today however I didn't get the error code as the default restart on failure setting was on, when I eventually got the pc to boot and switched the setting off I've not had the BSOD again so will update if I can get the error code. The pc would hang on starting windows for about 1 minute 40 seconds then give the BSOD. I had to use system restore and reset the CMOS settings to get the pc to boot which now it does however this is where the issue I'm stuck on comes into play.

Since then I've still been getting a long boot time on startup with windows 7, it went from 15 seconds in the previous 2 weeks to 1 minute 40 seconds today, have tried clean boot and the startup time is the same 1:40, I've also tried sfc/scannow to verify the system and there are no integrity violations.

I have a duel monitor setup and noticed the main monitor I use as my desktop is no longer the one showing the system startup but rather my secondary one is, I didn't change any settings here and found the primary desktop is still set as the main monitor once the pc boots to desktop eventually. I have the main monitor plugged into the motherboard via DVI and the secondary plugged into my graphics card also via DVI. (I'm getting a feeling the motherboard might be causing the problems here.)

I have a secondary hard drive set up to put all the files on I don't regularly use to free space up on my SSD which again was working perfectly for the last 2 weeks however I've just noticed the pc is no longer showing the secondary hard drive in my computer. I don't know if this is because I reset the CMOS settings to default. Will try changing the hard drive SATA port on the mobo and update.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

Update: Turned the pc on this morning and it took 12 seconds to boot, the hard drive is showing in my computer now as well. I don't know what the problem was or why it's not happened this morning but hopefully it doesn't come back.

Will update if there is an ongoing problem, if not I will be marking this thread as solved later on today.
