    Long shutdown and restart time in Windows 10


    Hi all,

    I recently got Dell Inspiron 15-5577 Gaming i5 Model without SSD with Windows 10 single language installed. Current version installed is 1709 Build16299.309. If I restart my computer it takes 4-5 minutes and even the shutdown time is 3-4 minutes. I have already clean installed the OS so that all the bloatware is removed. Haven't installed any Antivirus program. Have already set waittokill to 1000, tried turning Fast startup off and make changes to registry but nothing worked.

    Here's the screenshot of event log of Boot performance monitoring and shutdown performance monitoring.

    I'm really disappointed with this since my 7 years old desktop with 4 GB RAM and Dual Core processor running Windows 7 boots and shutdown faster than this machine.

    Thank you

    Hi and Welcome!

    You did a clean install with the Dell recovery or a clean install from a Windows ISO? After the clean install, did you make sure to get all of the latest drivers?

    Please post all of your PC specs using this guide here: Collecting System Specifications in Windows Windows 10 Tutorials

    Using Windows ISO and yes I did install all drivers from Dell’s website.

    Had run Autoruns to disable unwanted scheduled tasks. Did checkdisk as well. Superfetch and Windows search is disabled. Windows update is set to Manual.

    Detach USB peripherals including any USB drives to see if that reduces the delay.

    No USB device is plugged in.

    The hard drive is slow at 5400RPM and a laptop style drive.

    You may also have a lot of open programs that are starting with the PC. If you go to Task Manager and select Startup, what can you disable that you don't use?

    I have already disabled all the apps from Startup. Even I feel this HDD doesn’t do justice with the configuration. Will get Samsung Evo NVMe SSD soon.

    That will certainly fix the issue.
