  • Question

  • My Laptop runs Microsoft Windows 7 HP. My Configuration

     

    1. Intel Pentium Dual Core CPU T2400 @ 2.00 GHz and 2.00 GHz

    2. 3GB Ram

    3. 32 Bit OS

     

    The problem is it takes 1 MIN to boot and takes 1 MIN 30 Sec to shutdown. I m not happy with the boot and shutdown speed. I have all original software and no tweaks are applied. MSE is doing a good job by not using much resources. Softwares Installed are

    1. Office 2007 Enterprise.

    2. Google Chrome

    3. MSE

    4. Adobe Photoshop CS2.

    5.  Real Player.

    6. All Necessary Drivers. Eg. Audio, Video, WLAN, LAN, Chipset, Webcam etc.

     

    I have tried all ways to increase the speed.

    Like Upgrade 3gb to 4gb RAM.

    Uninstall Some programs.

    Run a Virus Scan.

    Run a boot scan.

    Check Disc for Errors and defragmentation of disks too.

     

    I have no idea what to do. Any Help will be appreciated.

  • Hello,

    since when you are experiencing such problem?

    If it appeared recently, you can restore your system state using a restore point that dates before the appearance of your problem.

    If not, try the following:

    • Go to Run and execute msconfig
    • Once done, go to startup and disable startup items that you don't need

    If this does not help, perform a repair install of your OS.

  • Hi,

     

    Logon with Safe Mode or Clean Boot to see the results, maybe some drivers or programs have incompatible issue with Windows 7.

     

    Also you can use device clean boot to check which device may conflict with Windows 7.

     

    Device Clean Boot

    =================

    1. Click Start, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Search bar and press Enter.

     

    2. Expand "Sound, video and game controllers".

     

    3. Right click on your sound card and then click "Properties.

     

    4. In the dropdown menu of Device Usage, please choose "Do not use this device (disable)" and click OK.

     

    5. Please use the same method to disable other dubious hardware such as: internal modem, network card and CD-R drive. Please note some devices such as video adapter are not available to be disabled.

     

    Furthermore, update the drivers and BIOS.
