Windows 10: Slow laptop boot
Slow laptop boot
Hello all, so I have quite big problem.So firstly my laptop specs:
- CPU: i3-6100u
- RAM: 8GB DDR4
- GPU: Intel HD 520 + NVIDIA GT 920MX
- HDD: SEAGATE 1TB 5400RPM
- OS: WINDOWS 10 Pro x64
So my problem: I have this problem about 2-3months , anyway I tryed many things but none of them worked, just clean windows 10 install helps for few days then again windows boots very slow.So now I want to find out what can cause this problem.So few days ago I reinstalled windows , used latest windows version from ms site, before reinstalling I done quite long HDD format, it took more than half a day.After I installed windows I also done a full scan with seatools with took few hours and again everything was good so I think it's not an HDD fault, but still not sure 100%.Anyway I know that SSD are much faster than HDD but my windows boots in about 2-3minutes which is also slow for HDD I think and still are very slowly for few minutes after I see desktop , btw I disabled all startup programs and useless services.I have checked event log and found some problems:
Maybe anyone can suggest anything to try?
Welcome to the TenForums @ tomka850
Lets try something easy. At command propmt(admin) please eneter this command.
powercfg -h off
This shuts off hibernation which in turns shuts of Windows Fast Start Up.
Then shut Windows down by holding the shift key down and clicking on shutdown (not restart).
Boot and see if that changes anything. The shift key down with shutdown fully shutdowns windows 10.
To turn hibernation back on it is the same command with "on"
Powercfg -h on.
If shutting down hibernation works then you could try disabling just Fast Start Up. This method is just a quick test.
Thanks for suggestion, so I tryed to turn down powercfg -h off and shut down windows with shift + shutdown , and then tryed to boot them again, so boot up was very slow.

Now I tryed to disable all non microsoft services in msconfig:
And now laptop boots up to login screen much more faster but login screen still takes about 1minute...which is quite bad I guess? So maybe any tips how can I decrease login screen time? I have disable all startup programs also.
Btw wanna ask which services https://i.imgur.com/iGmv02Y.png are better to keep enabled? Is it bad to keep them disabled always ? Because boot time is faster with all services disabled, anyway maybe there are just one service which has impact on slow startup so I will try to find out which one.
UPDATE: I think I found what can couse slow startup, when I turn on both intel hd service and nvidia services startup is very slow , but when I turn only intel or only nvidia everything is much more faster.https://i.imgur.com/5PxUHQM.png so what can cause this problem??

Sorry somehow this posting was missed.
I would be using your Nvida services. The only service I saw under Intel HD was there Control panel which I don't even imagine you use.
While you are looking at services what is happening in your startup tab. How many items are being started there.
One item that significantly reduces boot time is an SSD. Of course if you store a lot of data the costs do escalate.
I would look at your startup tab to see what can be trimmed there.
The Intel HD Control Panel is needed. The vast majority of Windows will run on the integrated graphics.
The Nvidia Control Panel selects what Applications run on the Nvidia (M) Card. e.g. Games you will likely want to default to the Nvidia Card.
Just for your information my Windows 10 bootup is 25 secs to the Desktop with a standard Laptop mechanical 1 TB 5400 rpm HDD.
1. You seem to have a lot of Nvidia stuff, presumably this is due to installing the Geforce Experience application. I strongly suspect that maybe a contributing factor.
I would try and uninstall that see what happens. You should just be left with "NVIDIA Display Container LS"
2. Looking at your logs it maybe Lenovo specific components, can't help with those as mine is not a Lenovo. However those maybe need looking in to.
Geforce Experience was uninstalled here when an Account was required. It never did anything useful for me, just bloatware. You maybe using those services, however for analysis purposes you can uninstall temporarily.
Today, I was messing around with a PS2 emulator (PCSX2) on my computer, and when I decided to restart the computer to move some files (the file explorer was saying "this folder is in use by another program"), my computer took a whopping...
Hi, as the title says, I just got a new laptop, bought like 3 or 4 days ago, its not mine but its the one I use. Its an Acer Aspire ES 15 with an AMD Quad core A86410 2Ghz, 12 GB DDR3 L Ram, an AMD Radeon R5 Graphics card and a normal HDD at 5400...
I'm using an Intel SSD 240GB 520 series.
Always loading very fast, i.e., about 8 seconds from cold boot.
Since windows 10 is installed, boot time is about 20 seconds and desktop icons take some time to refresh and load their images.
I have been trying to help a friend who has just purchased a brand new Acer laptop.
Apparently prior to purchase it was installed with WIN 8.1 but the small shop did a clean install of WIN 10 prior to my friend collecting and paying for the...
My Lenovo laptop is pretty fast at cold boot. It takes about 12 seconds from initial bios screen to desktop.
On the other hand, warm boot is really slow. The same period takes about 51 seconds, involving a long black screen.
