    Your new PSU had a lot more cables than the stock unit. I had that problem too. Cables everywhere.

    Trimmed another 10 seconds off by trimming the BIOS boot options. Now the only option is the EFI Boot manager.

    Now the slowest thing is the Marvell adapter.

    Have you tried using the Microsoft ahci driver instead of using the marvell?

    Hi,

    Here the result for my Tecra R840-16J laptop (I7-2640M @ 2.8 GHz + 8 GB RAM + 500 GB 7200 rpm HDD) with 25 items at the startup and a crzy number of services! Any aadvice to improve this number?

    Hold down the windows key ( the one with the flag) while holding it down press R. In the dialog box type msconfig, then select the boot tab. All of the items there with a check mark are in the start up programs. Uncheck everything you do not want in startup and save the results. Reboot and they will be taken out. After a couple of reboots, do the same thing again to see if any have written themselves back into startup.

    Hi essenbe,

    Well, that was what I did (msconfig) to obtain those jpegs! My problem is...what to uncheck from the startup without hurting the performance?

    Just for the record, not trying to be mean or picky or anything, but you want to do that with the startup tab, not the boot up tab. If you are not careful when changing things in the boot tab, all sorts of things can happen!

    Oh and by the way, the myth that going to msconfig, the boot tab then advanced options and changing the number of processors to improve boot time doesn't work. It is only for diagnostic purposes. Windows will use all available cores at boot up by default.

    Take a look here: Clean Up Factory Bloatware. You can disable most things safely but not your anti-virus software.
