When turning on desktop, it seems to shut off briefly, then turn on to continue the boot.

ENVY Phoenix 850-065se
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

So I bought my ENVY Phoenix 850-065se a few months ago and noticed that when I power the machine on, the phoenix light in front goes on and you can hear the system turning on, then it seems to shut off for a few seconds and then turns on again and completes the boot.

 

I did a clean install on the system to make sure it wasn't any of the programs that I installed.  I then measured the boot time it takes just to get to the HP emblem, which has consistently taken about 1 minute and 30 seconds.  From the HP emblem to login it takes another minute and 30 seconds.  Three minutes for a full boot doesn't make sense on a clean install and factory settings with an SSD.

 

Here are my current system specs:

 

Model:              850-065se

Processor:      Intel Core i7-5960X

RAM:                 12GB

System Type:  64-bit

 

I'd love to know if anyone is experiencing something similar and if there is a fix for it.

Hey @Jedaiken

 

Before I provide troubleshooting documentation for you to use, I would like to take a minute to welcome you to the HP Support Community! I understand that your HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop - 850-065se CTO is starting very slow. 

 

Note: please make sure that the power adapter is not plugged into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source. It should be directly into a wall outlet. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues.

 

Do you happen to have a 2.2 (or larger) TB USB hard drive attached?

Are you receiving or did you receive any error messages?

Did you try to do a hardware test in the BIOS?

Do you have anything attached to the PC?

 

You had said that the boot time is slow despite trying to do a fresh install. Here is a document called Computer Is Slow that may help you resolve the issue. In this document it will tell you about Microsoft Fix it. I have seen the Microsoft Fix it Solution work for others in the past.

 

You can also try Using Automated Troubleshooting. You will this document says "This document describes how to use the Windows 7 automated troubleshooting tools. These tools use a combination of installed and online applications to detect and resolve many PC problems, such as problems with networking, system performance, and hardware devices."

 

If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to help! Please let me know the detailed answers/results of the troubleshooting provided above. If this reply resolvesyour issue, please share the good news! Let others know this reply was helpful by clicking the Accept as Solution button at the bottom of this post. 

 

To simply say thanks, please click the Thumbs up below! Smiley Happy

I also have this issue.  No BIOS update or tinkering w/ settings has been able to change it.  It's the slowest BIOS I've ever experienced in 25+ years of working with PCs.

@VWEthan

 

Let me take a moment to thank you for posting on the HP Support Forums. 

 

I understand that you have an HP computer where the BIOS is slow and therefore the PC takes a long time to boot up. Not worry, I'll do my best to help you. 

 

To provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

  • Please let me know the exact product model no. This link will help you to find the model no: http://hp.care/2bygf7l
  • Did you try updating the BIOS on the PC?
  • What operating system are you using?

Please reply with the information and I'll surely assist you further. Cheers! 🙂

Thank you for replying with the information.

 

I understand that it is an HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop - 860-160se that you have. 

 

You may perform the latest BIOS update (version: A0.38 Rev.A)

 

Let me know if the PC overheats while working on it for sometime.

 

Cheers!

I have a different system board ROM revision - 2B3A... This is for 2B4B... Will it work?

@VWEthan

 

If the motherboard is unchanged and if you're using WIn10 then it is the correct BIOS update. 

 

Cheers!
