HP Pavilion 550 slow to boot and wake up

Question: HP Pavilion 550 slow to boot and wake up

I have just purchased an HP Pavilion desktop from Currys to replace my old desktop running Windows Vista. Although faster than my old desktop to boot up, it performs miserably when compared to my HP Envy notebook. When left for a while it takes 90 seconds to wake up when my HP Envy and the old Vista desktop are instant. Comparing with the HP Envy, both are running the same version of Windows 10 and have the same memory. The only difference is the processor. The Envy has an Intel 2.60 GHz and the Pavilion has an AMD 3.6 GHz. Both have had McAfee disabled and the only different software running is my email client, Windows Live Mail on the Envy and Mozilla Thunderbird on the Pavilion. On initial power up the Envy shows the welcome screen in 3 seconds, the Pavilion takes 90 seconds. Wake up from sleep mode is instant on the Envy but 90 seconds on the Pavilion (but only 4 seconds if it has 'just' gone to sleep). I expected similar performance so I am dissappointed with the Pavilion. Does anyone else experience this slow response? Are there any settings I can adjust? Could it be Mozilla Thunderbird? Any comments or ideas will be most welcome,Thanks.

Wednesday I installed Windows 10, upgrading from 8.1 & have had unacceptable boot & sleep wake times (7-12 minutes) and application not responding errors since. The only odd part of the install was AMD video updates, which I have backed out & reinstalled but no impact.  I searched for fixes and tried microsoft fixes like cleanmgr, msconfig & services.msc to remove unneeded items in hopes of improving boot time. In device manager I tried removing devices to have them reset themselves. Nothing is working. I recorded the time for bootup taking about 2 minutes from black screen to windows symbol with circle, then black screen for 3 minutes before 'please wait message', after signon taking 4 or more minutes to be able to access start menu or run program.  Full boot time is 10+ minutes - WOW, so frustrating I leave the room! Here are my system specs: HP Pavilion dv7 NotebookProduct number A6W99UA#ABAIntel Core i5-2450M CPU 2.50GHzSystem board 1800 10.5ABIOS F.1C16gb RAMDisplay - AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series 15.200.1062.1002 (7/15/2015) & Intel HD Graphics 3000 9.17.10.4229 (5/27/2015)Toshiba MK7575GSX hard drive 672GBOptical disk HP BD DS6E2LH FH62 I like the new interface with Windows 10 but am frustrated with not having reliable system since upgrade (note a desktop and net book I upgraded from 8.1 are both behaving normally - so I do believe this is system specific). ANY IDEAS?

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

I am trying to help someone with an HP Pavilion 17 laptop with an AMD A8-6410 2 GHz processor, 6 GB RAM, Windows 8.1 version 6.3.9600 Build 9600, 64 bit.

There are 3 problems, the most vexing is extremely slow boot time. The computer has AVG and Malwarebytes (both up to date) and neither of the scans has found any malware. I uninstalled several programs that thought might be the source of the problem, but they weren't. I checked the Startup and disabled several programs that I thought might be the source of the problem, but they weren't.

I then searched the internet for some answers, but it turns out there are a multitude of possibilities (most of what I found on the internet mentioned malware, slow programs, too many startup programs). I searched this forum, but I did not find anything that I could determine is relevant.

Does anyone have any ideas?

The other 2 problems may or may not be related.

1. When starting up, either from power off or a restart, the the boot menu options (F12 or Esc) are not displayed.

2. Also, we cannot get to "Change PC settings." When I click on that in the right panel, an icon is placed on the taskbar, but when I click on it, it just flashes on the screen but nothing happens. I also tried accessing settings using the search field and clicking on the result, but that doesn't work either.

So far, what I have found in searches does not appear to address these specific issues, so I would appreciate any ideas.

Thank you.... Read more

I am not sure if this is the right board to post this question in, but I am having the same issue with two HP Pavilion 13-a113cl laptops that are running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). The issue has to do with waking the machines from sleep using the keyboard or mouse pad. I am not having any issues with them waking from sleep using the power button or when I open or close them. I checked the BIOS and the power settings aren't there. (BIOS version F.32)I have the boxes checked to allow the devices to wake the computer in the power management section without any success.I have changed the Intel MEI driver to 9.5 instead of 11 that is typically installed  without any success. I am not sure if this is an issue with the BIOS and Windows 10 or something driver related. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have two HP Pavilion model a345w computers here with 2.6GHz P4 processors, 512 Megs of DDR RAM and 80-Gigabyte Barracuda hard disks. These are both identical, stock factory systems.

According to the owner: They will suddenly display "going to sleep" at odd times, sometimes several times a day and sometimes not even once in an entire work day. It will happen in the middle of typing a document or browsing the internet and totally without warning.

To be clear, this happens while it is being used; this is not happening just after periods of inactivity.

I have turned off everything that has to do with power management and a BIOS update available from HP has not helped.

I did a destructive system restore and the problem returned. As I type this one is in sleep mode and will not wake up without a manual powering down first. The other machine has already started going to sleep in the middle of typing a document.

I have inspected the capacitors and all seem to be in perfect condition--none swollen, none bleeding.

I've about decided these are defects from the factory since they are identical computers and have identical problems (and both are out of warranty).

Any suggestions?

If you're on-site then it could be a power issue or damage from a previous power event.

My PC is fairly new and I'm having problems with slow shutdowns/restarts and slow sleep/wakes. Recently it seems to fail waking altogether and restarts after a while instead. Usually during waking I just have a black screen for a long time before the reset/restart but sometimes I see the Windows log-in screen but it's unresponsive.
The problem predates my CPU undervolting and doesn't seem to change when I switch RAM settings back to Auto instead of XMP (I my RAM necessitates some kind of overclock in order to function at its rated speed).

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

After a period of non-use, the laptop goes into "sleep" mode where the screen goes completely black and the white power light is a steady white color (i.e. not flashing).  At that point, I am unable to "wake" up the laptop by clicking a key, pushing the power button or clicking the mouse.  Nothing works.  I have to hold down the power button and do a hard boot.  Very annoying.  Any fixes?Note:  I went to the settings and chose "never" for sleep mode.  That does not fix the problem.

Answer:Really really really slow after wake up

It could be a normal occurrence. Modern computers have so many "chores" to complete, running in the background isn't unusual. If it only happens some of the time after "awakening" it's not serious. Also FYI, check out an article on computer sleep vs. hibernation.

After a recent upgrade (a forced windows upgrade) this problem began. Not a W10 install but a periodic Windows upgrade. Prior to the upgrade there were no issues.

I have dual monitors and the #2 monitor takes 5+ minutes to wake up. It does this both from either a boot up or from a sleep wake up. Just a blank (dark) screen. Once it decides to wake up everything works normally.
Is there a setting somewhere to 'fix' this?

Hi I recently bought a T430u around a month ago, and recently if it's sat in sleep mode overnight or more than a few hours, it will take around a minute or so to wake from sleep. Once woken, it runs quickly, and the laptop also wakes from sleep instantly if it's only been asleep a few minutes or so. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?

Recently, the monitor is taking a long time to wake up (2-4 minutes). After wake up, everything runs normally. The slow wake up occurs after sleep or on initial boot up. The PC will wake up and the blue light behind the monitor power button will start flashing slowly. During this time, I can open Aps, I just cannot see them. Eventually, the monitor wakes up and everything works fine. I checked for a new monitor driver but it said I was up to date.

I've had my Dell monitor for about a year and it's been set to turn off after an hour. Until a couple of days ago I could move my mouse and it would come up. Now it takes a long time to "wake up" after I click the mouse.

The power settings are "turn off monitor" set at one hour; "turn off hard drives" set at one hour and "System Standby" after two hours.

I vary the monitor setting once in a while because sometimes it doesn't shut down at all.

A friend has his system standby set to "never" and swears that's the way to go.

Any suggestions about settings, etc. would be appreciated.

Hey guys,

1st, I'm running a dual boot system with both OS installed on my system drive (SSD).

I have hibernation disabled on both OS and I wake my PC with a key combo. (PS2 Keyboard)

When I wake Windows 7 I hit the key combo and immediately type in my password and hit enter before the monitor even wakes up. By the time the monitors come on Windows 7 is already fully awake and 100% responsive to input.

When I wake Windows 10 ......... I have to wait for the monitors to come on, then wait several seconds for something to come up on the main monitor. Some times it's the lock screen with the clock and weather, sometimes only with the clock. Sometimes it skips the lock screen and starts with the login screen. Sometimes it's a black screen that I click on and then I get the login screen. It never fails to wake, it's just slower then I'd like. This whole deal takes nearly 10 seconds which is an eternity to someone used to the PC waking faster then I can type in my password.

I'm just wondering if this is normal for windows 10.

Hi
 
Thanks for your post
 
Under Power options I am sure you have sleep mode enabled and in that setting there is also "Hybrid" sleep mode.  If "Hybrid sleep mode" is enabled then the system has to write all 4 GB of RAM data to the hard drive and then load it upon resuming windows.  disable hybrid mode and I'm sure your problem will go away

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y460p that I bought in late April. It has an Intel Core i7-2630QM processor, ATI mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics card, 8 GB RAM and runs Windows 7 home Premium x64 with SP1. There is about 350 GB free space available in C drive.

Almost right out of the box, it had this problem where it would give the BSOD on resuming from sleep. It didn't seem to happen when the sleep time was very short, like a few minutes. However, almost every time the system was in sleep mode for a reasonably long time, the blue screen would show up on resume.

I contacted the Lenovo customer support and she immediately thought it was a video driver problem and would be fixed by updating them to the newer version. From the conversation, it sounded as though she'd had to deal with the same problem before. So she went ahead and downloaded the latest drivers and installed them. However, it turns out the system already had the latest version of the drivers and re-installing them didn't fix the issue.

About a few weeks back, the system started becoming really slow. This was particularly noticeable in certain cases, like when windows login screen comes up, an application is started or a page is opened up in the browser. For example, when opening a page, the system would hang for a good few seconds until the page is opened and then it would work fine until I opened another page. Curiously, I haven't noticed the BSOD on resume from around the time the system st... Read more

Why did my mouse start acting slow, to wakeup my monitor screen, when monitor is asleep??? I even cleaned the mouse. I shake it & push the space bar, & other keys, etc. I put my old one in. But that one is worse. So I switched mouses.
 

Answer:Mouse slow to wake up monitor

It is not about the mouse.. Esp. if the keyboard is just as slow.

It is either your monitor, some changed power management settings or the general slowness of your computer.

Hi,

A friend has a 2 year old Samsung Laptop with an Intel Core i7 processor, not sure of exact brand processor speed or RAM (I can get that if it is absolutely needed). He has not loaded Windows 8.1 yet so it is still Windows 8.0. He noted "I keep putting it off. Mainly because I was told at one point that my Remote Desktop software is not compatible with 8.1. But that might be resolved by now; not sure."

Here is the problem: After working with it (nothing major like video editing, just web surfing, minor photo edits, music downloads and the such) he will close the lid (which puts it to sleep) or hibernate it. When he resumes it or wakes it up depending, more often than not it will take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours for him to get to an actual working state.

He brought it to me a few weeks ago and I did the usual scans (malwarebytes, installed an antivirus as he was relying on Windows Defender alone), didn't really find anything though. After having it for 3 days I could not get it to replicate the problem.

I took a look at the start-up and don't recall see anything unusual either.

I did some reading about windows defender and noted that it has caused some similar results for others but I disabled it.

My friend noted today that it still does the same thing. Below is what he wrote:

Answer:Computer is slow after wake up / resume

Windows Defender is a perfectly find antivirus to use and I would recommend you enable Defender for his PC and remove any other antivirus.

My laptop started taking extra long to wake from sleep mode immediately after upgrading to Windows 10. The problem has persisted for several months. Startup time seems normal, and the computer enters sleep mode quickly after shutting the screen. I always choose to receive updates automatically, so all updates, drivers, etc. should be up to date. There is no new software installed since the upgrade. What happens is when I open the laptop and strike a key, touch the touchpad, or move my wireless mouse, the light around the touchpad comes on, so I know the computer is trying to wake up, but the screen remains black for various amounts of time- sometimes only 30 seconds or so, but most of the time several minutes, until finally the lockscreen appears. I've checked to make sure the keyboard is set to wake the computer under Devices. I've searched for a solution, and although there are instances of people having the same problem, I have not found a solution. I've listed my system specs that I think would be pertinent. Thanks for any help regarding this issue.

I would report this directly to support but Lenovo it won't allow to me register my wife's X1 with my account inspite of the fact that I'm the one who ordered it. Ugh. Machine model: 20HRCT01WW My wife has 6 week old machine and it is much slower to wake from sleep than its predecessor (2nd Gen Carbon X1). I timed it this morning and it took in the range of 10 seconds. I just double checked the old, takes 4-5 seconds to wake up. (Having been asleep for several days). One would niavely assume, newer machine with faster CPU and SSD should wake faster. I have a pretty decent understanding of the various sleep states (S0 -> S4 - i.e. hibernate). I have spent a few minutes in the Event Viewer but can't find much useful logging of sleep state changes to figure out is going on. I have just time the time to wake from hibernate and its only marginally worse than sleep (~12 secs). (Full reboot is noticebly faster). How can I tweak the system so that wake from sleep is less painful? ThanksMark Levison

Hello all

I am having an issue with slow Network performance after my machines wake from sleep.

After a fresh boot of my machines I achieve 30 - 40MB/s (Wired) or 10 - 14MB/s (Wireless N) from my Nas, however, when I resume my machines from Sleep the Network performance falls to 10 - 20KB/s for both the Wired and Wireless machines.

I have found that if I Disable the Network Adapters and then immediately Re-Enable them my Netwok speed is restored.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 and x64 with Realtek and Atheros Nics.

All Drivers on all machines are upto date.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Kevin

I have a Razer Copperhead USB Mouse.

Specs of my desktop can be found here: TechComet: My Gadgets

Basically, I put my desktop to sleep (using S3-STR) and when I wake it up my moues does not respond for about 15-30 s after which it works fine. I am running Windows 7.

I have no other problems with my system, my keyboard responds fine and I have all necessary drivers installed.

I have no idea why this is happening and the fact that my computer resumes from sleep in 2 seconds is great, but not when I have to wait another 30 for the mouse to work!

Any ideas?

This is Windows 8.1. When I wake my computer from sleep, regardless of how long the computer has been sleeping, it takes 10-15 minutes to complete the process. It takes about a minute or so for the lock screen to show up. When it does appear, everything seems to be working but I click on the lock screen to reveal the password entry and a grey screen emerges but no password box or profile photo. Its as if the password box and photo are just missing on the page. So as I wait for the password box to appear, the lock screen will eventually return. I have to keep clicking on the lock screen to see if the password box has appeared.

Sometimes instead of the grey screen, the loading circle of dots animation is displayed but still behind the lock screen as above.

Any ideas?

When waking my computer from sleep it takes 8 seconds for the screen to come on, then nothing responds for another 25 seconds. I fixed all the errors in event manager, updated the bios, installed all the newest drivers, changed BIOS settings. All to no avail.

All the components (except the MB and CPU) were recycled from my last motherboard which would be ready to go immediately from sleep. My previous build (which ran great) was also Windows 8.1 but the motherboard died. I have no password. The lock screen is disabled. Disabled suspend, and shut off hybrid sleep.

Why the lag? Is there any way to find out what's slowing me down?

Answer:Windows 8.1 New Build Slow Wake from Sleep

Solved - I examined the sata settings in the BIOS and found the SSD drives were not detecting. Or perhaps semi-detecting since the system could boot off of them. I moved them onto different ports and they started to detect. This also restored my proper wake from sleep speed.

I have 2 harddrives in my Windows 7 RTM PC - a Seagate 500gb 7200.10 SATA (I think) as my c: drive and a Seagate 1.5tb 7200.11 SATA as my media drive d:. When waking from system S3 sleep I can immediately access my c drive and all its files. I cannot, however, access my media drive for 2-3 minutes after wake. After that time passes, response is snappy once again. I have no such issues when I reboot.

Sometimes on wake - I'd say once out of every 2 dozen, my media drive disappears completely.

I contacted Seagate technical support and they had me increase the "Delay for HDD (Secs)" from 0 to 10 or something. This had no impact on wake from sleep, only on fresh boot.

I've swapped countless power/SATA cables and have even swapped out my media drive for another and had the same problem.

I've disable hybrid sleep and hibernation all together.

Answer:Windows 7 S3 Sleep Harddrive Slow on Wake

Have you always had your OC at 2.7 or just recently bumped it up? I've just gone through hell with my Shuttle once I OC'd from 2.5 to 2.7. Just a weird coincidence that my PSU started acting up and before that my 7200.11 Seagate started doing weird spin up spin down shenanigans. I have same chipset as you. Try 2.5 with HT @ x4. I know your situation's not the same and it sounds more like a software issue.. but just worth a try to narrow things down.

I updated my Aspire 7750G laptop to Windows 10, and everything went well except for one thing. When waking from sleep mode, it powers up, but just shows a black screen for about 90 seconds.  When it finally does show the Windows login screen, it works just fine.  It's just the delay that I can't explain.   No amount of keypress or mouse click speeds it up. Before upgrading, it did not have this problem.  Wake from sleep took about 2 seconds. I have the latest bios update and all the latest video drivers.  Is this a known bug?  Anything else I should try? Thanks,Matt

2) When power cord plugged in the light sequence on the tower reads, from left to right, yellow, green.

3) A Thumping sound comes from speakers, not the typical Bios Beeps.

4) Monitor is blank, yellow light indicator on.

5) Cannot open CD Drive, even manually.

Hey !

I had a very very disturbing experience in which I was forced to shut down the computer, but failed and accidentally sent it to sleep.
Unfortunately, it never managed to wake up. It stayed during half an hour blocked early in the restarting process... I took my chance with a hard-reset.

And then it becomes insane. It gives me the cold shoulder, just hanging in a "Reverting changes" task. It's been a good while too.

I stand in awe wondering how is it even possible to break my setup like this. Considering the damn thing came with no restoring CD of any kind, on a scale of it's all fine to you're screwed, how exactly would you rate me ?

Thanks for helping !

Answer:Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

It might have a recovery partition where you could revert it to factory settings.

If you can get into the bios enable the boot menu which should activate F-12 to show the boot menu on startup.
If so choose 10 & get into recovery options.

I have this big problem since I have received my P50 (at least for one year now). It is a 7600HQ machine with a Quadro 1000M video card. Let's say I start my day by turning on the laptop. The laptop boots. I see the Windows login screen. If I wait a little the P50 crashed very hard. The screen shows the artifact in the screenshot I have attached but sometimes I see an even color (like yellow) instead of the artifacts. The whole system is frozen. The lights on the keyboard do not react (num lock for example). So I hard reset the laptop using the power button and this repeats for around 10 times before it is booted correctly. And after this: the P50 is rock solid. It stays on for days at a time. Multiple VM's running, 32GB memory, M.2 SSD. Fully functional. So I thought it was Windows and installed Linux.

One of the computers here at work has a hard time waking up. It usually gives trouble even coming back from sleep mode when in Windows. You can move the mouse around for a good 2-3 minutes before it wakes up and the screen goes back to the desktop.

Also, I dont think this is related, but when the computer powers on or reboots, it sometimes takes a good 5-10 tries before you can see anything on the screen. You can hear it booting up by the normal computer beeps, but theres nothing on the screen. Ive already replaced the video card and cables. Also I checked the monitor. Its not any of those.

Its an older Gateway 1.2 Ghtz computer with about a gig of ram.

I dont think the two problems are related, but I may be wrong. Anyone? Thanks

Hi all

I recently clean re-installed Win7 Pro 64 and now the Power Options keep reverting to High Performance every time I re-boot and even on wake up. If I set it to a power plan every time it works fine that one time.

I didn't make any changes to hardware/bios from previous install. The only change is that I first installed XP x86 to a separate redundant HD to enable a legacy scanner for which no 64bit drivers are available and I only boot into XP on an occasional as and when basis. I didn't make any changes to Windows boot manager & can only boot into it from F8.

I also downloaded a legacy game from Steam which is running happily on Win7. I rapidly decided that I hate Steam so I set it not to run at startup, only play offline and kill all associated process after closing the game. Again, I'm not running the game on a daily basis so it's unlikely this is affecting this persistant behaviour.

Grateful for any ideas.

Hello All, Just received my lenovo ideapad y460p and whenever I shut down the computer, or put the computer in sleep / hibernation mode the only way I can restart it is by removing the battery, unplugging the power cord, inserting the battery and plugging it back in. At first I thought it was a bug with the hibernation function so I disabled it via the command prompt. However the issue continues. I consulted Lenovo support via their instant message chat function but they were unable to diagnose the issue and directed me to the warranty support phone number, suggesting "one key recovery." I assume that means a system restore and hope there is a better solution than resetting the laptop to factory defaults as a first step. Please let me know if there are any suggestions or if anyone else is experiencing this issue. Thanks!Mark

I am unable to boot or wake up my Studio 1558 laptop. Here is everything that may be relevant to the issue.

I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 a few months ago.
The only issue I had after the upgrade was that coming out of sleep mode required a reboot a few times (but not every time).
About two weeks ago I put the computer in Sleep mode.
When I pressed power to wake it up:

The keyboard lit up
I hear the fan start
I hear the optical drive engage
I get a black screen.
I do not hear any beeps.

Pressing the power button again immediately shuts everything down.

Here is what I've tried to get a response:

Removed battery and AC then held down power button to discharge. Result: nothing.
Pressed Fn+F1 with an external monitor attached. Result: nothing.
Pressed D while powering. Result: Screen flashed different colors but didn't boot.
Pressed Fn+F5 while powering: Result: nothing
Created a Windows10 installation CD (on another computer) and tried to reboot so I could run Repair your computer. Result: nothing except now...

I can't eject the CD from the optical drive
Pressing D no longer flashes the screen

So I've tried everything I can find. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a Dell Dimension E310 running Windows 7. I upgraded to Win7 about 5 months ago and then added a video card about 2 months ago. About the time I added the video card (NVIDIA GForce 8400 GS), my Dell stopped coming out of sleep mode. I have to hard power down and then I can restart. Only recently I've noticed that even when I shut down and let the machine sit for a few hours, it behaves the same when I push the power button as it does when I try to bring it out of sleep. Here is what happens in both cases (trying to come out of sleep or trying to start after shut down):

Power comes on to the computer (the fan starts, the lights on the box come on), however I don't hear the disk drive spin and the monitor doesn't wake up. If I hard power down and then re-power on, everything works just fine.

I have NOT upgraded my power supply and I guess the video card may be drawing more power. Could this be it? Could there be a capacitor that needs to have some charge to get things started and that is why it works on the second start, but not the first start? Or is this a bad hypothesis? Any suggestions out there?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Dell won't wake from sleep - takes 2x to boot

I've now installed a higher wattage power supply (430 W to replace the old 230 W) which should be more than enough. Unfortunately, symptoms are the same: If the machine is off for a few hours, it requires two tries to startup. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Our machines, when they sleep, then try and wake up again, get a "no boot device found" error.  reboot, it goes into diagnstics.  Reboot again, it goes into attempting bootp. Reboot again, it starts windows 10 normally. I have turned off all os options with regards to sleep (high power power mode, turned off hybrid sleep, turned off "turn off hard drive after" etc..._)  all to no avail. Any ideas?  Thanks update: found we had a slightly older bios, so I'mgoing to see if that helps (.012 vs.014)

Hi,

I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 and I am having an issue where my computer goes into sleep mode, fails to wake from sleep, strangely resumes its state once I do a cold restart, and then after restarting again, refuses to boot.

Here is what's happening step-by-step:
Computer goes to sleep based on the time set in the Balance Power options scheme. Fine. Often, computer wakes up perfectly fine from moving the mouse or pressing a key. Fine. Very occasionally however, upon waking up the computer, the lights, keyboard lights, fans and everything else except for the display comes on. I am forced to do a cold shutdown by pressing the reset button. Upon booting up, Windows displays "Restarting Windows" rather than "Starting Windows" and resumes its state when it went to sleep. Strange but OK. Everything seems to work normally. The problems come in when I then do a shutdown or restart after it has resumed from the cold shutdown. The computer shuts down perfectly fine but during the next boot, freezes right during the animation of the windows logo and immediately restarts the computer and launches into the DOS-looking prompt asking whether I want to do a Startup Repair because the computer failed to boot.

I have tried Startup Repair from HD and from the Windows disc and neither have done anything. I am usually forced to just reformat everything and start anew. This problem recently started occurring after I installed an Intel X-25m 120GB ssd and put th... Read more

Answer:Windows fails to wake from sleep, then corrupts boot

Hi,

I just recently got hit with a similiar problem, it unfortunately resulted in a corrupted BIOS that is unrepairable, it ends up locked in a low power state. There is no one single reason why Windows fails to wake up, and it's kind of a common problem. From the research I've put into it, hardware and the version of Windows does not matter. You'll either suffer from it, or you won't. My recommendation would be to disable both your display and PC sleep settings, and stick to manually shutting down and a screensaver to completely avoid it before any possible hardware damage is inflicted, and until there is more information available on it. The CPU, mobo and PSU are the most likely to become damaged.

If you still wish to use Sleep, make sure all your drivers are up to date, along with Windows, might make a small difference.

If you have another system available to you, or are able to borrow a mates, go ahead and use it to test your hardware for faults incase your situation is hardware based, and not failed coding on Microsoft's part. Also on that note, try removing your SSD for a week or two (or however long it usually takes before your system decides to sleep in) and see if it solves it, and post back with results.

I would still keep an eye on here, no less, incase a solution comes to light. Go ahead and do some Google searches on the issue, the plethora of possible fixes people have tried may work for you.

If possible, can you recall anything else you have ... Read more

I have a Windows 7 Professional X240 and it keeps randomly loosing the mouse settings on wake or boot. I have double tap to simulate a right click, once in awhile the trackpad would stop doing it and I would have to go back into the settings to enable it... Any tips?

Answer:x240 loses mouse settings on wake or boot

Similar thing happens to me. 2 finger tap for right click disappears sometimes and I have to re enable it in the touchpad software.  Annoying.  Happens once or twice a week.

I'm new to sevenforums and would appreciate the help of some of you. I have updated my user profile with all of the details and specs of my system that is having my issue.

Recently, my computer will not wake up from sleep mode. Once it enters sleep mode, the only way to get it functioning again is to hold the power button, completely shut it off, and then boot my system back up.

It appears as if everything starts back up once I open the lid or press the power button to wake it up, but the screen never turns back on. The fan starts up, the backlit keyboard lights up, the leds all blink, but nothing I try will turn the screen back on forcing me to press and hold the power button for a complete shut down.

I have reinstalled the latest Intel HD Graphics driver as well as the latest NVIDIA graphics driver (both the stable and beta release).

I do not get a blue screen or any sort of error. Upon the restart, I am not prompted with any error from windows or any signs of the forced shut down. I have been messing with this issue for a few days now and am asking for some help from the community here at sevenforums. If you need any additional info let me know.

Thanks.

I've started to have a number of debilitating problems with my lumia 950, which is a shame because they are the same problems that made me leave android for the WP platform. To start off, my phone has been randomly restarting. The restarting seems to have started after the anniversary update version 1607. There's nothing common between one reset to the next, just that they become more frequent as battery life reduces (starts at around 80%). This is also sometimes accompanied by a streak yellow across the screen. I don't know if this is relevant or not.
My second issue, which has been happening the longest, is that the screen will sometimes be completely off when I wake up the phone. I will put the phone into sleep with the power button, and when I wake it up with the power button the screen is black. I know the phone is awake because windows hello will try to sign me in. I have reason to believe that the touch digitizer is also still working. This is fixed either by trying to sleep cycle the phone or by holding down the power button until the phone prompts me to power it off. This seems to wake the screen up. the screen also sometimes wakes up when windows hello signs me in, but this is rare. This problem has become less frequent since the anniversary update.
My third problem is that sometimes the touch digitizer doesn't work on wake. This is similar to my last problem, except that it always goes away by sleep cycling my phone. This problem has also become less prominent ... Read more

Hello,
Today, I was messing around with a PS2 emulator (PCSX2) on my computer, and when I decided to restart the computer to move some files (the file explorer was saying "this folder is in use by another program"), my computer took a whopping three minutes to boot! When I was finally in Windows, the file explorer was very slow (I had to refresh each time I moved something), the desktop had the same problem, the trash bin took about 5 minutes to respond, and the shut down button didn't work anymore. These problems all started at one moment, and haven't occured before. Other things like the internet and games worked just fine. Since, I've restarted a couple of times and come across to solutions for pretty much each individual problem. But I haven't come across a solution for all of these problems at once.
I built this system myself, about a month ago. My specs are: Intel i5-6500, Sapphire RX480 Nitro+ OC 4G, 8GB Crucial RAM, MSI B150M Mortar, Crucial BX200 240GB SSD (Windows is installed on this drive) and a 1TB WD Black Caviar HDD. If you need any other specs, I'm happy to provide. I am at a loss as to what to do!

Answer:Slow boot, slow file explorer, slow trash bin and no shut down

Welcome to the TenForums.

If you could describe messing around. Were you dual booting to this emulator or did you visualize it within Windows?

If in Windows, assuming you have restore points enabled, I would perform a system restore to an earlier time.

Assuming that goes well I would look at Macrium Reflect to Image your system , at least your boot drive. You can run regularly so you versions of your boot drive.

If you were dual booting let the forum know.

When the PC is in Standby - Sleep - Suspend mode (S1 or S3), Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring work some of the time but not all of the time, and I'd like them to be 100% reliable.

These may be two different problems, but your advice will be appreciated. (Also, if I should post in a different forum, please advise.)

Right now I am on windows XP and compared to my other computer (which has 512 MB RAM) it lags. Especially on videos and things with flash. I've used another hard drive with this computer that had linux on it (tinyme and Mandriva) and that was also slow. This computer has 736 MB RAM and that number seems peculiar to me.

These are the specs on the RAM that this computer should have:
Component Attributes
RAM (standard) 256/2100 DDR
Maximum 2 GB
Speed PC2100/PC1600
Type DDR
DIMM slots 2

I got this computer at a yard sale, so I don't know what all has been done with it.

What could be the problem if there is one? Or are these computers just slow?

Thanks.
 

Answer:I have a HP Pavilion 513x and it's somewhat slow. could I have too much RAM?

PR:

Here is the support site for the HP Pavilion 513x desktop.

According to the products specs, it comes with 256 MB of RAM, but it's capable of supporting up to 2048 MB. It uses DDR PC2100 modules.

If that computer is showing 736 MB of RAM, it likely has 768 MB installed and has the on-board display adapter using 32 MB of it. 768 - 32 = 736

If you open the case, I'll bet there's a 256 MB module and a 512 MB module in the 2 slots.

----------------------------------------------------------------

If you bought that computer at a yard sale, you've inherited all the outdated and useless junk from the previous owner.

What you need to do is to format the hard drive and do a fresh install of XP in it and get it in pristine condition. It'll run a heck of a lot better.

If you go that route, go into the Device Manager and identify the display adapter, sound device, and network adapter, then obtain and burn off to a CD-R the current drivers for them before you start.

I've resurrected several older HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario desktops, and starting fresh is the only way to go.

Hi, Start the notebook and let Windows fully load.  Hold down the Windows key and press R.  In to the Run box type msconfig and hit enter.  In the following window, click the Start up tab, remove the tick next to each start up item and then click Apply to make the change.  Reboot the notebook and see if it now starts normally.  If it does, re-enable one start up item at a time, click Apply and reboot to check if it still starts ok.  Keep doing this until you encounter the problem and you will know the last program you set to start is causing the slow boot issue. Regards, DP-K?

So, I purchased my Pavilion at my local Costco yesterday, expecting to have a nice computer for gaming use and school work. I unpackage it, set it up, and install some virus protection apps, like MalwareBytes and AVG 2015, as well as a few games. I immediately scan my computer, and look for threats, and remove those immediately. Then, I boot up one of my games, Plants VS Zombies Garden Warfare. The main reason I bought this laptop was to play this game when it didn't lag, as my old PC runs this too slow. When I boot it up, I immediately hop into a game, and find out it lags like crazy. I've tried to fix this, and I've turned the graphics down, but the game is still too slow. The laptop in general also seems very slow. Can anyone help me with this?

Two years ago I bought a HP Pavilion 15-af022nd notebook. Since then I didn't use it much and when I used it, I only used it for school purposes (programs like word and excel). I noticed that my notebook is getting slower and slower, especially when I'm on YouTube. Can someone tell me the why this is happening and what I can do about it? Is it possible to enlarge the internal memory? Thanks in advance.
