Takes 10 Minutes To Boot

I'm not sure if this is the ISO (doubt it) or my hardware (more likely).

I have motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
BIOS version F2 (updated today 12/12/2009)

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 245
RAM: ddr2 800, 4GB (2x2GB)
Windows: 7 Ultimate 64bit
Video: GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, PCI-Expressx16 -- latest driver
from nvidia (downloaded today 12/12/2009)
Monitors: two (2) 19" Widescreen LCD. One is DVI, another is VGA+adapter=DVI.

Win7 setup (install) -> first restart -> bios finished -> blank/black screen for 10 minutes (or so)... then win7 loads and resumes fine.
This 10-min delay happens every time win7 restarts. Note that this happens even initial setup/install, no other programs installed yet.

Previous OS: Windows XP Pro 32bit, SP2. No problem with booting.

I have tried unplugging one monitor, switching, using the onboard ... all with same result.

Can anyone help me, I'm desperate -- about to ditch win7 and go back to XP pro.

Computer Takes About 7 Minutes To Boot?
I recently installed a WD 15k Raptor hard drive and my computer now takes about 7 minutes to boot up, it gets stuck at the starting screen, where no hard drive action will happen, then 7-8 minutes later there will be loads of activity then will start up, ive tried narrowing it down, by removing the old hard drive (because im using the other old hard drive that had the OS on for media) and just running the new one, but no luck, I also tried reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my old hard drive, which had no problems before, but the same effect, takes 7-8 minutes to boot. Ive even tried removing any new hardware I installed before it, but still the same problem, Ive asked a lot of people and Ive had various solutions, but no effect, I think its to do with the power supply, or the SATA cable and power addapter I purchased for the new hard drive. Ive also tried booting in safe mode, and it still takes the same time to boot.Computer spec:Processor: i7 870RAM: 8GBGPU: AMD Radeon HD6870HDD: WD 15k 300GB Raptor HDD, WD 5400 1TB HDDPSU: 500W

Windows 7 Takes Several Minutes To Boot?
My computer does not run smoothly, and I cannot figure out why. My computer takes upwards of five minutes to reboot, with several minutes on the "Windows is Shutting Down" screen and several minutes on the initial boot. The delay even includes starting the computer in Safe Mode.Additionally, I am having tremendous amounts of graphical problems while running any game I have on my machine, including Rig N' Roll, Nascar 2003, Max Payne, and Skyrim (even on the lowest settings). Random discolored shapes will appear and stretch throughout the screen. Black lines show up and the graphics are so unbearable that I cannot play any games functionally. For example, when going through the very beginning of Skyrim, the screen would turn almost completely white and stayed that way until I exited to desktop.

The graphical problems are not only in games, as even browsing on the internet can cause random thin horizontal black lines to appear across the screen. The lines remain even if I shut off my monitor and turn it on again, so the monitor does not appear to be the problem.I have run full scans in safe mode of Malwarebytes and Symantec Endpoint Protection Antivirus, with no detections of virus, spyware or malware. I don't know what else to do.I have the most recent (as of today) Windows updates with the exception of one. The update of KB 911895: Other Hardware - HID Non-User Input Data Filter, refuses to update.

OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.Motherboard: XFX Nforce 680i SliProcessor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40ghzRam: 4 gbGraphics: NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS 2gb card, with driver urrently updated after running drive sweeper and installing the latest driverAudio:

Windows 7 Takes 10+ Minutes To Boot?
Just recently purchased a new computer. i7 2600k CPU, GTX550 Ti graphics card and 32GB RAM. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit Pro and am booting from an SSD. I have an audio interface connected via USB2 port on boot up. I've seen videos online where it can take about 25 seconds to boot win 7 with SSD but I am getting no where near that.

Windows 7 Takes Several Minutes To Wake Up
I will first say I have searched the internet far and wide and have not found a solution that has worked yet. Secondly, this is a home build that is nearly a year old with no issues to this point so it's not connected to so-and-so PC supplier who released a driver update that I know of.About a week ago, my computer has decided to take its time when waking up from sleep. It is Windows 7 Professional, completely updated with no problems to that point. When it falls asleep and I wake it up, the machine starts up and is active, but my monitors, external hard drive, and other peripherals are never turned on as they once were and the machine just sits there running with a black screen. After exactly 1 minute and 50 seconds, the hard drive, monitors, mouse, keyboard light up and I'm good to go. It was about 10 seconds prior to whatever it is that happened. I have tried turning off hybrid sleep. I have tried using hibernation instead of sleep. Same error. I found online where someone said they had this problem with an ATI card, but once they upgraded the Catalyst Control Center and drivers, they had no problems. That did no good. The only update I've done recently is Firefox, but I have not seen any other reports of the newest Firefox causing sleep problems. I read where someone had a problem with waking up from sleep mode because of Firefox's memory leaks and they said closing Firefox before putting it to sleep helped.I upgraded to SP1 after that and it didn't correct anything.It does not matter if I put it to sleep and wake it up immediately or if it goes to sleep and when I get home from work, boot it up. The same thing happens no matter the length of time.

I have a dual boot with Ubuntu, but that has been on there for months with no errors and Ubuntu will sleep and wake up just fine, usually; sleep has never worked correctly for it. There have been no hardware changes or any hardware driver changes other than the video card. I tried rolling back video card drivers to see if there was a difference with no change. My ASRock MB has the most up to date BIOS that has been out for over a year. My video card is a 5770, but like I said, I've tried older and new drivers. I tried the prevx black screen fix with no luck. I saw the Windows hotfix for this problem, but no where did they provide a link to this hotfix so I'm assuming it was downloaded in an update at some point so it is doing no good for me.

Windows 7 Takes Over 5 Minutes To Start
AFter windows finally boots up, everything works fine except IE v9 that also takes forever to load a page and strangely, most of the dropdown menu items are grayed out. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but the same symptoms occur. I have reset to defaults and the long load time still occurs. If I try to maximize the IE window, it hangs and never frees. Also, if I try to enter a new url in a separate tab, IE freezes and never releases and takes a while to close.

This is on Win 7 Home Premium, SP1 64-bit with IE 9.

Pc Freezes Every 2 Minutes And Takes Too Long To Startup
My computer was superfast until it started giving problems. It literally takes 30 minutes to start up and it freezes every 2 minutes. The Windows Experience Index showed a rating of 7.9 for the processor but now it only shows 4.9. The pc is quite new, I bought it 19 months ago.

Here are the specifications:
Motherboard - Intel Desktop Boards DH67BL Media Series
Processor - Intel CORE i5
Hard drive - Western Digital 500GB
RAM - 2 � Kingston DIMM 2GB DDR3 (4GB)
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

How can I fix my pc or at least stop it from freezing.

Desktop Takes Minutes To Load After Login?
I have a relatively new Windows 7 enterprise 64-bit install. This is a domain account, so I have to do ctrl+alt+del to login. After entering my password, the welcome notice comes up (with the spinning circle), and it takes quite a while for the desktop to appear. It can be as long as a couple of minutes. This is a pretty fast rig (i5 2500K/GA-Z68X-UD3H/F312800CL8D-8GBXM) and when I first set it up it, my desktop appeared about 10 seconds after hitting the power button, including login.

Is the use of the domain account the likely cause of the delay, or could this be something else like automatic update? I'm not sure how I would go about finding out.

15 Minutes To Restart & Takes Long To Connect 2 Network?
Toshiba Satellite M645-S4065 (LAPTOP)
CPU: Intel Core i3 M370 2.40GHz dual-core
System type: 64-bit

1) When I restart, my computer stays stuck at the "Shutting Down..." screen for 15 minutes. I then get a BSOD, then it restarts, I get the prompt to start up as safe mode, etc., and then I'm back to the main screen. The BSOD reads: driver_power_state_failure

2) Connecting to the internet, whether by my phone's hotspot or ethernet cord is really problematic, especially by cord. It often hangs and I have to restart the computer or wait a really long time. The taskbar icon hangs with the spinning Aero circle perpetually. And attempting to open the networking controls just freezes.

Windows 7 Startup: Wireless Takes Several Minutes To Automatically Connect
So I still have Windows 7 Ultimate Beta and going to buy Professional soon. But something weird is going on.

I have Thunderbird which checks all my email addresses at startup but it says "cannot connect" so i started to check out my wireless. My wireless says it has "limited access" to my network, says it is "not connected" and when I check the wireless status, it would say that it isn't connected to the IPv4 and IPv6, all while being connected for "00:01:30+"

Then after several minutes, it would just start identifying and connect to the network/internet real fast out of nowhere. My wireless is a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection

Also, I have a VMware to run Ubuntu which bridges the internet to go online, if this helps. (I cannot uninstall since it took me 4 weeks to get it running)

"Downloads" Folder Takes Minutes To Load In Windows Explorer
I am having trouble just viewing the "Downloads" folder in Windows Explorer It used to just be a periodic thing, now it takes literally 2-5 minutes to load this folder! (I cannot even sort it while it is loading!)I noticed in Resource Monitor that "MsMpEng.exe" (Microsoft Security Essentials) is checking each and every file in there everytime I open it. (Hundreds of line-items in Resource Monitor.)So something must be flagging most of these files as changed or something so that MSE is going in and re-scanning everything. Here are some [perhaps ] pertinant notes about my Downloads Folder: It is very large, with almost 1,000 items. However, I want to keep it large as I have many apps running directly from the folder. (There are of course sub-folders for organization, but I find having a single download spot is good for catching things I may have already downloaded...) I have it mapped from C:Users[USERNAME]Downloads to D:...Downloads (My C: drive is an SSD so I keep this large amount of data off it.) I made sure to add this to the Windows Index. The "Date Accessed" date is updated to today for about 1/3 of the files (300 or so) even though I am only really accessing no more than 3-10 per day. It does not seem to matter what type of file it is (exe, zip, etc...) I added this to my "Favorites"; however, this happens regardless of if I access the folder via Favorites, [USERNAME]/Downloads, or d:...Downloads. I generally add stuff to that folder via Google Chrome. However, I could not catch the Chrome process doing anything weird or anything when downloading something.

Eventually, the windows logo flies in, in slow motion and then black screen again for about 3 mins

Pc Takes Longer To Restart Then To Boot?
Let me explain, I just noticed that when I restart my pc, the restart precess seems to hang at the motherboard screen for more then 3 times the time it does when I boot the pc from being switched off(a good 15-20 seconds at Mobo screen on restart).

The problem is I think it only started doing this after I accidentally uninstalled a hard drive driver and the pc shut down(and I think restarted). The hard drive seems fine now, the driver was reinstalled, I'm just a little concerned I could have caused a problem, or is this normal?

So the question is simple, Is it normal for a pc to take longer(at least 3 times) at the motherboard screen when you restart then when you boot up from an off position. If the answer is no then I suspect it could be something I've done to it, as I never noticed it taking that long before.

My basic pc spec is:

i5 2500
assus h67
8gb ram

I just checked, when I start up the pc normally it stays on motherboard screen for 6 seconds, when I restart it stays on the screen for 24 seconds.

OS Takes A While To Boot, Access Other Drive
Recently installed Windows on a SSD, very satisfied with its performance so far.

However, sometimes, Windows will take an unusually long time to boot, it will just sit there, and then I will hear my mechanical hard drive (data drive, no OS files installed on it, connected via a different SATA port) spin up, and at that point the Log in screen will appear.

I'm curious as to why it needs to access the data drive at all, there is no System Reserved partition on it, and no Windows files as far as I can see. I have attempted to keep it as a purely data storage drive.
