Windows 7x64 professional, slow bootup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a HP Pavilion DM4 1009tx with 4gb of ram, usually my laptop takes 35 seconds to be on my desktop screen during bootup but occassionaly a black screen appears for 10-15 seconds before the blue welcome screen of windows 7.


    What I would do is restart my laptop 2-3 times to get it back to normal, sometimes it would even take more than 2-3 times.

  • Hi,

    make sure you have the service Superfetch running and next try to speed up the boot with the help of my guide [1]. This trains the advanced prefetcher in Windows 7. This increase the boot performance a lot. All other tweaking tools are useless. Only use this method with this Microsoft Toolkit.

    If this doesn't speed up the boot process, follow my guide [2] to make a xbootmgr boot trace and compress the boot_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl as 7z or RAR and upload it to your Skydrive [3] and post the link here.

    I take a look at the trace, maybe I see what's wrong with your Windows.

  • Restart your Computer and Press F8 key. Select your OS(if you have more than 1) and click start up recovery.

    Your computer will restart several time and will disable the application that is causing this.

    also try defragment your Hard Drive and Registry.
