    starting my PC used to take 30 secs, now it takes at least 2 mins


    pretty much the title.



    My PC used to take 30 secs to start and now it takes at least 2 mins (i actually timed it), most of this time is spent on the windows logo loading screen.



    it's been 2 months. last thing i remember doing was installing Samsung SSD Magician and Samsung Nvme SSD Driver and ACE stream. since then, i uninstalled all of them but nothing helped. i also tried uninstalling apps and games i'm not using, nothing happened. also tried unplugging everything connected but the mouse and keyboard, didn't help.

    i have 800 GB free on my 1 TB SSD, as most things are installed on my HDD. finally, i wanted to note that the slow start up happened suddenly, and not gradually and/or overtime.



    it's also important to note that my PC is only slower when starting up, everything else seems to be fine.

    pc specs :

    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    Intel Core i7 7700K

    32 gb RAM

    STRIX Z270E GAMING

    GTX 1080 Ti

    SSD 960 PRO NVMe M.2 1TB

    WD black 4tb HDD

    Hi kak2a2. Welcome to the TenForums @kak2a2

    Is this 2 minutes also present when you restart your PC or it only happens on power on boot.

    If only on Power On boot you could see if shutting off Windows Fast Startup resolves.

    For analysis you could use the Windows Performance Recorder.
    Download and Install Windows Performance Toolkit in Windows 10 | Tutorials

    If you search the forum for
    Windows Performance Recorder
    you can see some examples and screenshots. Technical.

    Otherwise it's a question of hardware performance, CPU downclocking....
