notebook boot time

HP Recommended

Hi,

my notebook has been taking two minutes to boot up for some time.

Once the boot is finished, the pc has excellent performance.

How can I fix the very slow startup?

Slow overall performance, coupled with long boot times, are generally indicators of drive failure.  But since yours performs normally once booted, that rules that out.

 

The boot time is dependent critically on how much stuff, and what kind of apps, are loaded at startup.  Press Ctl-Alt-Del and select Task Manager.  When that opens, select the Startup tab.  You can try disabling everything there to see if that shortens your time to boot to a desktop.

First of all, thanks for the reply.

I have disabled all applications at startup but if I restart the computer it still takes two minutes.
Yesterday at the start it took ten seconds, today it took two minutes again.

I can't understand what it can be.

That has me baffled, as well.  If it was a startup apps issue, the boot time would be constant and it would have improved and stayed there after you disabled all the startup apps.

 

IF by boot time, you are including the time for Windows to boot to a working desktop, different ways you turn off the laptop can affect that.

 

Win10 has enabled a new hibernation process known as Fast Startup -- which is enabled BY DEFAULT. This is different from Fast Boot, which is a BIOS/UEFI option.

Fast Startup is supposed to dramatically speed up the booting process, but in some PCs, it actually slows it down or causes it to hang. It's also a new form of hibernation known as hybrid sleep -- and this causes battery drain to maintain the state of the PC while turned off. In some rare cases, it can also cause a laptop to overheat because the processor is still running and still generating heat, as this has been reported when the laptop was turned off and put inside a case.

Disabling Fast Startup might fix booting and shutdown problems.

There are two ways to disable FastStartup in Win10: (1) through the Control Panel, and (2) through an elevated command prompt.

Control Panel - Open Control Panel --> Power Options.
Select "Choose what the power buttons do"
Select "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
At the bottom of the Window, under Shutdown settings, uncheck the box regarding fast startup

Elevated command prompt - run the following command:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 0 /F

In both cases, reboot Windows.

NOW, Fast Startup is disabled.

See if that helps.
