    Long Boot up in new laptop. MSI Stealth GS75


    I bought this MSI Stealth GS75 with Win 10 Home two months ago. It booted quicker when I first got it, though I was expecting better start up performance. Currently it takes over 3 minutes to boot, that is longer than my 10-year-old 1st Gen i7 Sager it replaced. (The Ryzen 1700 machine I built over a year ago starts in 30 sec.) This extreme slow down is recent, and there were no changes or new software installs -- other than swapping out my 12-year-old Dell 24" external monitor for 4-year-old 27". It just started to drag.

    Anyone have suggestions other than restore/reinstall windows? Specs below.

    Open Task Manger and look at Startup items. You can use Autoruns to also look at startup processes. Copy what you posted to your System Specís.

    A problematic disk can dramatically slow down a computer.
    Do a disk check disk.
    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk C: /f
    It will say that the disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next boot = yes
    Pay attention on the results, specially bad blocks, bad clusters, bad sectors ...

    Could this be a problem?

    I'm not sure what you mean by this? Do you mean post the startup list here?

    Found what I think is the problem. My older USB external 1TB drive. If I disconnect it the machine boots quickly in seconds. Plugging it back in and the boot takes 3-4 minutes.

    When I first got the machine, my my Logitech Alto dock/stand would not be recognized. This 1TB drive was recognized only some of the time. Someone said something about BIOS/UEFI not recognizing older USB equipment, do I really need to dump these items? I love the Alto. 1TB is a spinning.

    Does that external drive contain an active partition? I had that issue once which slowed the boot process.
