Windows 7: Hibernation takes longer than restart to boot.

Hibernation takes longer than restart to boot.

So I recently had problems with my graphics card but I've had those problems for a couple months, whats new is that my hibernation mode for my laptop now takes about 5 minutes to boot from which is longer than it takes to startup from a shut down computer.

I also recently reverted back from windows ten where the hibernation worked fine.

What is even more interesting is that there is actual hitching (stuttering) when the screen that says "Resuming windows" comes up and the four colors come together to make the logo.

The colors will move then freeze then move then freeze. Once the computer starts its completely normal.

Attached is a snipping of my disk management. For some reason I now can also see my bios partition when looking at my computer.

Why use Hibernate, it consumed space by GB and slow.

De-activate will be much better.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Very few people sadly do not create system images before upgrades
Now I'd imagine the system needs to be reinstalled
C is nearly full W is full and D is almost empty.
