My notebook takes too long to start when I turn it on

I bought this laptop a couple of months ago. I turn it off at night after using it, and when I turn it back on, it takes a long time to start. I use Chrome and when I try to open the window I left the day before, it always says "application is not-responding" and takes a long time to fix the problem.  I read that if you had many open tabs, it takes time for Chrome to load them, but I try to leave only two or three (the ones I was using the night before) and close the rest. How can I make it run faster. It's practically new.

First off, you really can't make it run any faster -- it is what it is in terms of performance.  But from your comments, it sounds like it is getting hung up on rebooting, and that can be caused by something known as Fast Startup.


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.
