A week or two ago my Studio XPS 16 use to boot up fairly quickly, but now it takes about 3-4 minutes to boot up from shut down.
The only things I have running at startup are Zonealarm, Skype, Dell Touchpad, NOD32 Antivirus, and Dell Quickset. I'm running Vista 64-bit. Has anyone else experienced slow boot times with their SXPS 16?
I have recently bought laptop acer aspire 6930 g with following features Processor intel core 2 duo t6400 2ghz 2mb cash Ram 4gb ddr2.
Hard disk 1000gb ( 2 hard each one 500gb) and preloaded vista home premium and nividia 9600m gt 1gb ddr2.
And i notice that my laptop take too long boot time in compare with my friend laptop Dell inspiron 1525 with 1.6 pantium dual core processor and 2gb ddr2 ram and 160 gb hard disk and windows vista ultimate..so is there something wrong with my laptop and how can i speed up boot time and do u think that i can play games like crysis and call of duty 4 and GTA 4 on it?
I have a Studio XPS M1640 and I'm experiencing extremely slow internet browsing with firefox and ie. My SXPS has the Intel 5300 card, which I've read has problems such as dropouts and slow speeds. I'm also running Vista 64-bit, which I'm assuming could also be part of the problem. Web pages take way too long to load, but my download and upload speeds are the same as they would be if I plugged directly into my router. Has anyone else experienced slow browsing with their SXPS 16? I'd love it if someone could give me a solution to this.
When I logon to Win7 it hangs at 'welcome' for quite a while, then goes to desktop and has the loading cursor while my desktop icons load, then my antivirus loads.
It isn't crazy slow, it is just a lot slower than my M1530 which was instant. Am I just noticing the difference between my 5400rpm drive and my old 7200rpm drive? Is it a significant difference? I will be poppin in another WD Scorpio Black
I decided to try and do the whole clean install thing with my SXPS 13 today and - well, now I'm completely freaked out and regret it completely. I kind of wish I was warned it wouldn't be so simple for a newbie laptop user, because this has been the most computer-related stress I've had in my entire life. Now I feel like I've permanently wrecked my new $1500 laptop because I have no clue what to do about the huge mistake I've made.
First of all, it seems to me like my entire computer has slown down. I downloaded iTunes on the original install within a minute or two; now, it takes 15 minutes. Internet pages come up slower than before it seems to. (I had some issues at first installing the driver for the wireless thing)
I did put the Dell Driver disc in, of course; I was so freaked out I went through everything I could, extracted then installed, because I didn't know what was supposed to go on and what wasn't (it didn't let me download drivers for things I didn't have, of course).
When I first started it up, Windows new rating for my computer was 1.0. I made it do it again, and it went up (5.3), fortunately, but it can't help but make me think what else I might be missing.
Another red flag is that when I go back to the Dell Driver disc, and I try to install something to see if I already did it, it asks if I would like to "create" the file as nothing existed their before. As I was 90% sure I did install it once before, I tried it with one I new I installed. It went through as if I never installed it, so I'm afraid if every time I restart my computer isn't going to work unless I take the time to reinstall every driver.
There has to be something huge I'm missing here. If anyone can think of anything, please let me know. Also, please let me know if anyone knows of a guide to the clean install on this computer (I already looked at Microsoft's Vista Clean Install guide, obviously that doesn't fix all the Dell driver problems) .....
who came across with slow start up and sleep issues in windows 8.1. ( Dell Inspiron 15-3537).I recently upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1. After installing all the drivers found that fast start up not working and laptop does not awake from "sleep" state.
Actually reinstalling the Intel Video driver solved the problem. When I was going to install video driver, it was said that a newer version is already installed. However neglected that and downgraded the video driver. that 8.1 is faster than 8.you install the latest driver given in dell website.
I have recently purchased an inspiron 14z, I'm quite disappointed in how long it takes to boot. For instance it is considerably slower thsan my older latitiude machine which does not have a hybrid drive. Is there something I can do to check the intel smart start (or whatever) is working correctly? Is the 32gb SSD portion supposed to show up as an extra empty hdd at D://?
So I when I first got this laptop a few weeks ago I instantly installed lucid lynx.
So I am dual booting between W7 and lucid. The odd thing I see is that the grub menu seems to take a random amount of time to come up.
Sometimes it takes a few second to get to the OS list - other times it takes more than 10 seconds. Also - sometimes the OS list will come up - but the keyboard will to be recognized for another few seconds (like 5 or more seconds)...
I had receive an old one compaq laptop evo n800c from my father, but I have a problem with this laptop. only for booting (cold or hot booting) it takes about 6 minute stuck in compaq logo in the beginning
I had enabled quick boot option in BIOS but it seem doesn't work because the time needed for booting does not change, such as before a quick boot is enabled
I have Windows XP installed through boot camp, and it seems the hard drive is acting very very slow. Or basically XP in general. Installations are taking a very long time. It literally took 4 hours to install Modern Warfare 2. In case anyone is wondering I have the 2008 iMac 2.4 Ghz, 1 GB RAM, 7200rpm HD. Also in device manager, under SM bus controller there is a yellow question mark, could that be part of the problem?
My audio on the bottom right icon tray comes as a cross and it when ever I boot up. If I troubleshoot it says install the IDT audio driver and it will solve it. An yes the cross goes away but come back with the next boot of Windows
I have an E5430 that when the power button is pressed will not post every time. It is random. I get the power light only. Holding the power button down until it clicks off and pressing it again on the sixth or 19th time it will finally light off and post and head into boot. I have run the full diagnostics and no problems are found. The diagnostic finds no problems so I am wondering if this is a power button problem or something not tied to the MB. The same thing occurs with different batteries and power adapters.
I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my Acer Aspire AS1410. Maybe it's normal, but the hard drive LED is solid on for about 30 seconds before it boots into Windows 7 during the floating windows screen. Is this normal?
There was a lot of gunk pre-installed on the Acer 6292 portable I bought about 6 months ago (eNet, ePower, ePresentation, eDataSecurity management etc, etc.), running under Vista Business (now with SP1). These make boot up very slow.
It has been suggested elsewhere (specifically in microsoft.public.windows.vista.general News Group) that these are not very useful and could be got rid of. I would like a second opinion before I uninstall these.
Specifically, are these interrelated - e.g. can I uninstall some (e.g. eDataSecurity) without affecting others (e.g. eRecovery) ?
I am a bit cautions about uninstalling as the Acer did not come with a recovery (or Vista) CD, and I would have no way of going back.
my elitebook 8530w seems to boot up slow w/ 64 bit vista. i did a clean install and installed the drivers. Ex. it will say "please wait" for 20 seconds before going to the "welcome" screen. after "welcome" comes up..it does boot to the desktop very fast and is ready to go though. what is causing vista to hang like this at the welcome screen?

When I boot up my Y50, The lenovo logo comes up and the windows 8.1 loading logo below it lags. It starts slow and then goes back to normal. The problem is, My other laptop which is also windows 8.1 it boots up 2x as fast even though my y50 has better computer specs. Both laptops have fast boot enabled.
Edit: My other windows 8.1 laptop boots in 14 seconds while my Y50 boots in 35seconds. There is noticable lag when it boots up.
I have bought a MB alu 2.0GHz + 2Gb RAM DDR3 and I have noted that sometimes the boot time is longer in the morning or after a long s/d (more than 6hrs for instance) than after a 2-3 hrs s/d. Indeed the cold startup takes around 43-45sec whilst the 'warm' start may take about 32-35sec. Does this happen to you too?
2nd question: what do you think about ONYX? Is it worth making this automation or it is better to abandon these pc-attitudes on a mac?
