Event viewer Diagnostic-Performance Event 100 Boot Duration 144277ms or more RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few months back my main desktop started to develop obscenely long boot times. Around 2 minutes from POST to Login screen, most of that sitting on the black windows loading screen. The system is not meager by any means so i doubt its cause of old hardware. Win7 Ultimate 64 Bit, AMD 1090T Black edition CPU, 16Gb of ram, AMD Radeon HD 5850 driving three 22" displays with a WD Black Edition 1Tb hard drive. I noticed at the time of the slow down through the even viewer that my boot times were over a minute and a half, while my 3+ year old laptop can boot Win7 Home Premium 32 in under 20 seconds on significantly slower hardware. 

    Does anyone know of a way of tracking down the exact problem thats causing these insane boot times?
