Laptop slow logon while not connected to university network

    Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have searched the internet for the past few days looking for solutions however I haven't found any directly related to my problem.

    I have the following problem. We (at the University of Technology Eindhoven) have a lot of laptops issued by the University, pre-installed and everything. They are by default connected to the local network. I have a HP Elitebook Workstation 8570W, installed with Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. When starting the laptop and logging in there is no problem, everything is fast and I am logged in, in just a few seconds. However, when I am not in range of the University's network, the logon seems to take ages and loading everything is taking a long time. This is very inconvenient sometimes especially when needing to quickly look something up.

    I don't have any more details for the moment but if anyone can help, ask and I can probably provide the required information.

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards,

    Jevin Bosman

  • When you are outside university , try create an local admin account and observe login performance and also try to change your PC from domain to workgroup and check performance .

  • There are few things you can check to resolve this problem. Firstly – Do you know if you are running a roaming profile in your university?

    (A “Roaming profile” is a user's unique profile that is automatically available when he or she logs on to any computer on the network. Users do not need to create a profile on each computer they use on a network)

    Having said that, Please log on to your computer using “Safe Mode” – Quickly press F8 at start up to enter safe mode – Do you still experience slow logon ?

    Update your Network Driver on the Laptop through “Device Manager” – Right click computer, click on “Manage”

    Is this issue happening for All Laptop users in your University? Or just your Laptop.

    Too many Logon Scripts could also cause this problem..

  • Are you part of domain network?

    Does your PC become slow or your internet connection?

  • Thanks for your response.

    Yes I am part of a domain network (the university's network).

    Neither, only the logon is slow.

    My internet connection is quite fast.
