Samsung Series 9 Slow Boot After Crash

Aug 25, 2014

I have a Samsung NP9000 model NP900X4C-A05AU. It regularly crashes due to full memory. It has 8G of RAM, running Windows 8.1. It's done this since day 1 - I managed to remove some Samsung bloatware that mitigated the problem somewhat, i.e. from once a day to three times a week. Mostly, just before it happens I get the "close some programs or lose some data" message, and I can possibly kill something (chrome usually) to free some memory so I can reboot cleanly. Usually at this point, the "Modified" section of the Task Manager Memory usage tab is quite big. Reboot and it's good for another couple of days.

Sometimes the "close some programs" message is too late... I get the message and almost immediately Windows crashes and reboots. Up until last week, this didn't cause any issues after the reboot. But last week, it did this, gave me the message and immediately crashed. It took about 1 hour for it to reboot, sitting at the "please wait" dots. I was in the process of making a recovery USB to boot from when it finally came to life. Everything seemed ok, was able to start things up, and carried on as usual. Couple of days later, get the "close some programs" message, and am able to reboot. But the laptop takes 5 to 10 minutes to reboot. Up until I had this issue, a reboot would take 5 to 10 seconds (to get to the login prompt). Even a reboot after just rebooting takes 5 to 10 minutes. I've run scans on my SSD, it says everything is ok. Every reboot now takes 5 to 10 minutes.

Windows 8.1 On Samsung Series 7 Ultra

Jul 14, 2013

I recently upgraded my Samsung Series 7 Ultra to the Windows 8.1 preview to check out it's new offerings. It's ok I suppose. Some positives and some negatives. Anyway on to my point:

So with the update came some unwanted changes. It seems to have disabled most of my func keys on the top row of my keyboard. Also, it now no longer saves my touchpad settings. They are reset to default everytime the system is rebooted.

I'm guessing this has to do with the Samsung software that controls these features not yet upated or ready to run on 8.1.

Can't Start Windows 8 On Samsung Series 5 Ultra

Jan 28, 2013

I have a Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch. The other day, for reasons unknown, it would start up into the auto repair process. It would "diagnose PC" then "repairing", warning that might take a long time. Well after 24 hours I figured this was a dead end.

I have been through a crazy number of troubleshooting steps
--couldn't get into any F8 or Shift=F8 action
--Samsung's Restore mode crashed (F4)
--Made a recovery USB and figured out the magical BIOS steps that would actually allow me to use it after much trial and error)

The recovery process has yielded no joy.
--System Restore crashed
--Automatic Repair was never ending
--System Refresh said the drive was locked

So I started using DOS commands. Chkdsk seems to be taking forever to accomplish very little. See the screenshot:

Should I let it continue with chkdsk /f /r /x?

Setup Installation :: Can't Install Ubuntu From USB On Samsung Series 7 Chronos

Jan 16, 2014

So I downloaded the ISO and burned it via unetbootin. I go into bios and change the following settings: disable fast boot, and make the OS selection CMS make USB boot first Then when i boot, it just boots back to windows 8. I also noticed that once I reboot back into bios, the USB is not set to first boot as I set it initially.

By the way I have a Samsung Series 7 Chronos with nividia graphics.

Hardware Drivers :: Samsung Series 9 With Central Station 27 USB Display - Unable To Work?

Mar 18, 2012

how I get Samsung LC27A750XS USB display drivers (win7x64) to work on a Samsung NP900X1b with the Windows 8 CP installed?

The drivers won't start at all. The built in USB3.0 hub is recognized and working flawlessly, but the USB display driver continues to report it can't be initiated as there's reg keys missing.

I've reinstalled the win7x64 drivers over the Windows 8 defaults but nothing is resolving. I'm trying to use either for extended viewing or as the primary display while at my desk.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 On Sony Vaio E Series Laptop - Cannot Boot Through USB Thumb Drive?

Jan 28, 2014

I'm trying to install windows 8.1 on a sony vaio E series laptop which had windows 8 preloaded on it. I made a bootable usb thumb drive with Windows USB CD/DVD Download tool. When i try to boot through the pdrive it doesn't boot. I selected the option to boot from external device and selected the boot mode as UEFI. But it doesnot go into the windows 8.1 setup.

Then i selected the legacy mode and started the setup but it booted into the 8.1 setup. I formatted the C: Drive and selected that partition to install windows 8.1 on it but it showed mean an error showing that the partition is of GPT style and windows cannot install. I was doomed...

it happens because it is not booted in the UEFI mode and then i tried again but it doesnot go into the windows setup and shows a black screen with the notification that no operating system was found.

Setup Installation :: 30 Second Boot Delay With New 250GB Samsung SSD

Jan 26, 2014

I replaced a Kingston 128GB SSD with a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD. Cloned Kingston SSD to new Samsung SSD using Acronis True Image.

Now, when I boot, it sits there for 30 seconds flashing the hard drive light blinking then proceeds to boot normally. All BIOS settings are default.

Hardware details in Specs.

Booting from the 128GB SSD was fine, no obvious delays.

What might be causing this? Could the new SSD be defective?

Setup Installation :: Boot Order On Samsung 350V5C-A08

Dec 30, 2012

I have just replaced my broken HP DV5 laptop (windows7) with a new Samsung NP350V5C-A08 with window 8 already installed. I am having major problems working out how to change the boot order.

On my HP the boot order was:
a) Optical disc drive.
b) Usb external hard drive.
c) Internal hard drive.

This configuration allowed firstly to upload Ubuntu 12.10 from a disc in the optical drive onto the external drive, this allowed me to run Ubuntu from an external hard drive, this saved me from having to partition the internal hard drive and I believe invalidating the guarantee.

With my new Samsung I cannot get to list the boot options in the bios (the only option is the internal Hitachi drive). How I can run Ubuntu like I did with my HP laptop.

Samsung NP355E5C-A01AU Laptop Won't Boot From Recovery Partition

Sep 9, 2013

I swapped out a HDD in a samsung NP355E5C-A01AU laptop which i cloned all the recovery partitions from the original to the new HDD. Its a windows 8 partition and everything seems to be there but the laptop wont boot from it at all, it just goes into bios. I did get it to try and read from the recovery partition but get a "MBR error 1" when it tries to boot from it. I used aronis disk director 11 to do the cloning if that works. Also the original HDD was a GPT partition and thats wat i have formatted the drive as. Ive done some reading and acronis can be difficult when cloning recovery partitions and it will give u this MBR error.

Setup Installation :: Samsung Won't Boot Install USB In UEFI Mode?

Apr 2, 2014

So I've searched, and I've tested, and now I'm about to turn my laptop into a frisbee and never buy a Samsung PC again. In short, I bought an ATIV 7 whose previous owner had downgraded to Win7. I wanted to put Win 8 on and I have a volume license as well as the OEM key so I burned the ISO (actually 2 different ones) using every method I could find (ImgBurn, Rufus, Iso2Disc, Win7 Download tool, etc.) It became clear that the USB needed to be formatted FAT32 with GPT filesystem, however in UEFI mode it shows the USB but won't allow me to select it - it just flashes. If I set it back to CSM and UEFI I can make a USB boot, but even if I use diskpart to clean the drive and convert to GPT it will fail to install because it detects I didn't boot in UEFI mode.

Here's the deal. When I'd installed it earlier this week in CSM and MBR mode, and then converted to UEFI it worked fine. So....I tested several recovery programs we use at work to make sure they'd restore it okay via bootable media. Paragon, Aomei, Macrium, Lazesoft - all boot media failed. ONLY True Image 2014 DOES ACTUALLY BOOT in UEFI mode on my laptop. The only thing I can figure is that the way WinPE 5 or 5.1 (whatever it uses) is set up on it agrees with my laptop. So how I can modify the Acronis recovery media or create similar WinPE media that might actually boot on my laptop.

Can't Boot To Any Recovery Disk - Infinite Crash Loop

Mar 20, 2013

I have a DV6T with Win 8 (Can't boot to any recovery disk; infinite crash loop - HP Support Forum - 2490191).

Windows told me that there was some corruption on the hard drive, and to reboot so it could solve the problem before losing any data.

Now I am in an infinite crash loop. It will try to boot windows, but just as soon as the first dot of the spinny wheel from the windows loading screen loads, it crashes. On the next boot, it said it's preparing to repair. Crashes again. Repeat...

I tried to boot into the HP recovery environment with F11. Looks like it just skips it and tries to boot Windows. Crashes.

I put in a Win 8 DVD, and try to boot off the DVD. I press a key at the "press any key to boot from DVD" prompt. I hear the DVD seek for a bit. Then it seems like it gives up and tries to boot Windows from the hard disk. Crashes.

I tried creating a Windows 8 recovery disk on USB from another Win 8 machine. Same drill.

I brought it into my office and tried a network boot to a recovery environment. I watched the loading bar, and when it reached the end, it crashed.

I'm stumped as to why it can't even boot to external media! The two things I've been able to boot into have been HP's onboard diagnostics (full, extended suite passed) and memtest86 (which passed).

Debugging :: System Crash / BSoD - Dual Boot Running Windows 7 And 8

May 6, 2014

I am the same person who posted a thread about needing drivers for Windows 7 after dual booting it with my preinstalled copy of Windows 8. So, I was on Windows 7 today, and my screen randomly blinked on and off for 5 seconds, and then came up with a message saying my system display driver crashed but had recovered. Then, about a minute later, it crashed again and came up with a BSOD saying that the display driver had crashed but failed to recover. I do not have the error code from it, as I only saw this screen once, and forgot to copy down the codde because I got freaked out But anyways, I have copied the system report to this post from the Seven Forums System Tool. I am currently running in safe mode on my Windows 7.

Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro XE700T1C Dual Boot - Unable To Install Intel Android Onto PC?

Mar 6, 2014

I actually installed the Android on Intel Architecture onto my Samsung xe700t a few times over the last few months, adjusting windows 8 or android options to suit my needs, but a few days ago I decided to format my laptop and reinstall Windows 8 and reinstall Android as I have previously, I am now getting this error message at the very end of the android installation process:

fatal: assertion failed bootable/iago/plugins/gummiboot.c:gummiboot_execute:154 'efibootmgr encountered an error (status 100) root@android:/#

I have updated the bios, I have made sure my laptop is in UEFI format, I have made secure the BIOS isn't in secure boot, I have tried various USB sticks, I have also made sure the USB stick is first in the boot order.

So why I can't install Intel Android onto my pc anymore ...

Windows 8.1 - Slow Boot After Installing 2nd SSD

Jun 28, 2014

I recently upgraded my 250 gb SSD with a 1 Tb one. I used the Samsung migration software to copy the drive and then disconnected the 250 gb drive so things wouldn't get confusing for me.

Everything seemed to work well with the 1 Tb drive. Windows booted extremely fast as usual and it looked like everything was running the way it was before.

Today I reinstalled the 250 gb SSD with the intent to use it for backups. It came partitioned, so I deleted the partition via the windows disk manager and reformatted the now single partition. The drive itself seems to be fine.

The problem is that when windows 8.1 boots, it displays the window logo as usual, but there's a 25 second delay in doing the rest of the booting. The screen is entirely blank, so I have no idea what it's doing. The hard drive light on the CPU blinks, though. The boot order on my bios is correct. I'm not sure why it's so slow to boot now.

The other thing I noticed is that when I click on my Computer icon, the drives take awhile to list. A progress bar slowly advances at the top of the window. Once I've done this once, the drives display quickly, but whatever happened is reset when I reboot the computer.

Windows 8 Pro 64bit - Slow SSD Boot

Feb 14, 2013

Just upgraded my gfx card from a nvidia 560 gtx to a nvidia 670, and my PC is taking like 1 minute to boot now. It used to be like 15 seconds..


Windows 8 Pro 64bit
i5 3570K @ 4.4ghz
nvidia 670
8GB RAM 1600mhz
samsung 840 SSD 256gb
seagate barracuda 500gb
650w ocz PSU
Z77 D3H motherboard


remove the old gfx drivers last night, using driver sweeper, cleaned the registry etc, but it hanged on post [where you see your motherboards bios logo and what keys to press etc] for the first time with the new card in, downloaded the gfx drivers for it and it still hangs on post after install.

Tried playing a couple of games that are on my SSD and on my HDD and performance is perfect.

Loaded up samsung SSD magician and 'optmized' the ssd and benchmarked, 550 read 250 write speed.

Tried my USB and PS/2 keyboard, doesn't register keys to get into BIOS, so can't flash it.

Tried unplugging all USB devices and still hanging on post, takes a good minute or 2.

Also checked my C: drive with the OS on using error checking and it found none.

Not long reinstalled windows 8 either...

Slow Boot Black Screen After Windows Logo

Mar 28, 2014

When booting, my windows 8.1 is slow to do load. After windows logo, it goes to a black screen for around 10 secs, then it finally logs into the Start menu. I know this is not normal because I have seen the system boot faster in the past, but I don't know why its doing it now.

I have done a fresh install of windows 8 and update to 8.1. I made to to have Fast Boot enabled.

I have haswell, so I made to update to the latest graphics drivers by Intel.

On a second note: I am triple booting: osx/linux/win with Chamelon boot loader. However, I doubt its an issue with triple boot because the black screen occurs AFTER windows logo, meaning windows has successfully loaded.

Maintenance :: Slow Boot Up And Random Log Into Temp Profile On 8.1 Pro X64

Jan 9, 2014

I have an HP laptop (G6-2005AX) with the following configuration

CPU: AMD A8-4500M APU 4-cores with Radeon HD Graphics
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7640G + 7600M Dual Graphics
Memory : 8 GB 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM (2x4GB in dual channel)
Mainboard: Hewlett-Packard 184A
Hard Drive: Seagate ST500LM0 12 HN-M500MBB 500GB 5400RPM

I'm using AVG free 2014 as AV and did a full system scan - no viruses.

The problem is that Windows 8.1 (64bit, pro) boots up really slow - taking upto 6-7 minutes. After it boots up and, well I don't know exactly how to put this - let's say "settles down", everything works as normal. After getting past the password screen, clicking on the desktop tile takes around 1-2 minutes to boot into desktop, after that opening any program (Chrome, MS-Word etc) will take 3-4 minutes - but after it has "settled", everything works as it should.

Also, another curious problem I am facing is that once in a while, when typing my password and logging in, Windows boots into a temporary profile (no apps, blank desktop) and a message appears on the notification area that "windows has logged you on with a temporary profile" or something similar - I need to sign out, then after I sign in again, my real profile gets loaded.

I thought the problem of logging into a temp profile, I thought was that the PC was not verified - I verified it by going to Change PC settings --> Accounts. But after 4-5 days, I see the option of verifying the PC again.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Slow Boot / Restart And Shutdown

Mar 9, 2014

My system has been on completely since 8.1 and has never needed to restart until I did some updates today.

Now I'm not really concerned about shutdown or restart as I will manually shut down the PC if I'm going somewhere for an extended time "I never leave anything on, power for the entire house is shut off" and will shut it off until I get back.

But the slow login is really killing me as it used to take 1 second to hear that little "tick" from the speakers and I'd see the login/splash page, but as of today I will hear that "tick" but the windows dotted circle will spin for oh.. 30 seconds than I can see my splash screen.

I've scanned my C: and D: disks, ran defender, antivirus, etc and all came back fine and I even have 90GB free out of my 120gb drive.

Maintenance :: Pavilion DM3 / Windows 8 Pro - Very Slow Boot After Updates

Apr 12, 2013

I have a Pavillion DM3 that I have updated to Windows 8 Pro. I have left the Win7 Home on as well and have a dual boot that I was going to keep until I was happy with Windows 8.

Windows 8 installed OK on a new partition and ran very well. I loaded some other software like Office and Acrobat, and it still started and ran very well. I then let it apply the Windows and Office updates (about 70 items). It then took about 10mins to boot. Thinking I had corrupted something, I tried the auto repair, but that didn't work, so I tried refresh and rebuilt the Win 8.

I reinstall all the items I had installed previously, and applied the updates again, but exactly the same problem - very slow to boot. I have now reverted to Win7 again, and it is all working fine again. I have left the HP System partition unchanged, and as the active drive. I did try various boot rebuilds but that didn't work either.

There must be something in the updates that causes this but I don't know how to find out what.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 / 8.1 Extremely Slow To Boot - Take 10-15 Minutes

Oct 26, 2013

I've had certain problem with my Windows 8 installation . Let me summarize the entire scenario but before that below are my System Details .

System :- Dell Inspiron 17R SE 7720 Laptop .
O/S :- Windows 8.1 .

I formatted my system yesterday and installed Windows 8.1 via MSDN ISO . Installed Dell Drivers and a few programs like Norton 360 etc , after which i shutdown my system yesterday .

When i opened my system today , i was shocked to see Preparing automatic repair message on the Dell boot screen . It tried Automatic repair because it said that Windows was unable to boot properly . However , Automatic repair was unable to do anything .

After that i shutdown my system again and then again powered it on. This time it booted to Windows but took about 5 min to get to the password screen . After booting to Desktop mode , i tried to open chrome , task manager etc , but nothing opened , and the system was painfully slow up until 10 min . After which everything was normal .

Tried to open Event log and it also crashed. I again restarted my system and this time it was lightening fast . Tried to shutdown and restart 2-3 times more , and it was fast all these times .

I've attached a dump of all my logs using SF Diagnostic tool ....

Maintenance :: Hang On Restart / Shut Down Slow Boot Times?

Oct 31, 2012

I'm getting soo many problems regarding booting after upgrading to Windows 8 Pro yesterday on my Asus Zenbook UX32A.


2nd Gen i3-2367M processor @ 1.4GHz (for Ultrabooks)


500GB HDD + 30GB SSD (for Fast Resume, etc.)

Issue # 1: Whenever I Restart or Shut Down, the system HANGS there and does not progress *most* of the time. To fix this I have to always resort to holding the power button.

Issue # 2: When I boot the PC up, it takes SO long for me to get to the Start menu, around 1:15-1:30 min, which is longer than it took me on W7. I know I have an HDD, but this is abnormally long to me. Once in a blue moon, I will boot up in a matter of 30-40 seconds (which I think is how long it should take), but mostly it takes really long.

Issue # 3: To test the above 2 issues, I went ahead and opened msconfig from Run, and disabled all Non-Microsoft services except AVG to check. When I shutdown and power on - everything is fine, shuts down nicely, powers on nicely - however, the second time I do this, the system will hang on shut down, or will hang on start up, sometimes I can hear the startup sound but nothing on the screen, all sorts of weird actions.

Issue # 4: This one is funny. On standby (lid down), the system will restart itself. Happened while I was sleeping, I could hear the boot sound.

EDIT: The problem is still there when I disable 'Fast Start-Up' in Power Options. The problem is due to the processor state, it keeps resetting to 100%.

New Dell W8 Laptop - Slow Boot Time (Login Screen Appear After 5 To 10 Mins)

Jul 7, 2013

I received my laptop (Dell 17r SE) about a week ago but I have been having trouble with it's boot time. From pushing the power button, it takes anywhere between 5 and 10minutes to arrive at the login screen.

I checked the event log for Diagnostic-Performance, and the eventID100 has popped up quite a lot as "critical." I go into details and the stats are not looking to good. These are the times for multiple boots:

BootTime 175799/153962/217864/640216(This one was the first startup that the laptop ever did)
MainPathBootTime 122899/90262/135072/564816(This one was for the first startup that the laptop ever did)

Along with that critical error, I get other warnings saying apps/drivers/services like Svchost, rdbss, gpsvc, SMSSInit took longer than expected to initialise, thereby slowing startup.

I'm not sure if this is useful but apart from that, the log also shows EventID500/501 error events that state that The Desktop Window Manager responsiveness has degraded due to heavy resource contention.

Windows 8 Very Slow To Access Files - Green Ribbon Of Slow Death

Dec 16, 2012

I have just built a new computer and Installed Win8. The motherboard, processor, and system drive are all brand new Intel stuff; the media drive is a new Seagate. Programs get up and running just fine, but I have transferred my files over from my old xp machine, and Win Explorer is very slow to access them.

I'll open a folder, and more often than not the thumbs will not be there; I'll then try to open or preview a file and I'll get the green progress bar over the address bar. This will often take up to a minute or more to run, and if I leave it be then the icons will usually appear and the files will then be accessible. If I try to open or preview a file before it's done things lock up on me.

After navigating away from that folder and allowing some time to pass however, the thumbs dissapear again and I am back to square one. sometimes the thumbs will reappear all on their own. this seems to be an issue whether we're talking large files or small, or folders with 100's of files or as few as 8. The very same files are instantly accessible by the new comp from the original locations on my external USB drive and on my xp machine over the network. Once they are copied to the new machine is when things get bogged down. This seems to be the case both on the system drive and the media drive.

Furthermore, right from the very beginning, I've had icons disappearing and reappearing from my start menu apps page.

I have tried the following to resolve the problem:

- I have optimized the folders in question for both the types of media therein, and back to "General Items" again

- I have disabled indexing both on the drives themselves and in the libraries control panel

- I have run a full system virus scan with Bit Defender

- I have contacted Windows support and they have run a scan that showed Windows itself to be working properly

One thing that occures to me is the problem seems to be with the SATA drives and the SATA drives only, but if there's something wrong with the mother board wouldn't my programs have trouble opening too?
