Speed issues with Windows 8.1, SSD, 32 GB RAM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have windows 8.1 Pro, 64 bit, with 256 GB SSD containing the OS, 750 GB HDD storing data, 32 GB RAM, and 4 GB VRAM but still it tkaes 4 min to boot, 8 minutes to shutdown. I cannot change pagefile, it resets and goes to windows default, SSD gets full and freezes the computer.

    What should be done to make the computer operate at its best?

    I have no virus issues or dirver problem.

    Thanks and looking forward for an answer.

  • In order to diagnose your problem you will need to download and install the below


    Install the WPT (windows Performance Toolkit) 
    Help with installation (if needed) is here


    When you have, open an elevated command prompt and type the following 
    WPRUI.exe (which is the windows performance recorder) and check off the boxes for the following:

    First level triage (if available), CPU usage, Disk IO.  


    If your problem is not CPU or HD then check off the relevant box/s as well (for example networking or registry)  Please configure yours as per the below snip.  This will reboot your computer so save your data before starting.

    Click Start


    Let it run for 60 secs or more and save the file (it will show you where it is being saved and what the file is called)

    Zip the file and upload to us on Onedrive (or any file sharing service) and give us a link to it in your next post.
