5+ minute boot up times, tried lots of fixes but no help

HP Recommended
pavilion cw-0598sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have tried multiple solutions and managed to get start up down to around 5 minutes, i have reset my laptop which helped for a day or so but after updates and getting my stuff downloaded again it was extremely slow again. Steps have been followed such as turning of fast startup and cleaning files but no use.

anyone share this issue and feel they can help

Reset will not speed up slow booting -- as that is a combination of the number of tasks that are loaded at startup, the type of disk drive, and any problems with the disk -- none of which are going to be fixed by a reset.

 

A really SLOW PC is almost always due to a failing drive.

If your PC is new enough to support UEFI, you can use these steps to test the hard drive: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00439024

If not, to check the drive you have to follow these steps:
1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over.
2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu
3) Press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.
