Lenovo G580 - Very slow booting and file transfer

Question: Lenovo G580 - Very slow booting and file transfer

I bought Lenovo G580 a couple of weeks back. Its running now on G580. Booting is too slow at the moment. Takes more time than my old system with Intel Celeron. Another problem is the speed of file transfering. Inter-partition transfers are having maximum speeds of only upto 10 Mbps. Can someone shed some light into this?

dear all, i'm a newby here and i need your help. I own a Beacon with 2x1TB HDD in RAID 0 mode, so when i move datas to Beacon the max. file trasfer speed is up to 5 mb/s. In my opinion this is tooooo slow. Can anyone help me, or say about your file tranfer speed to Beacon. My configuration: Lenovo Beacon +  Netgear 5-port Gigabit Switch (GS305) + Win7 PC. Everything is LAN wired. I already tryed another PC (Notebook) but with the same result. Thank you!

Answer:Lenovo Beacon file transfer too slow

nutzer,
 
We can look into this further, but can you share any additional details about your configuration?
 
Is there a firmware version on beacon you can note?
 
What other data rates do you get accross your network - say running networkspeed test from a PC accross your netgear switch and across the internet?
Thanks

Hi Gabbi,
 
thanks for posting. You might want to check in your control panel which Lenovo preloaded software are installed. One software which I've seem has caused this issue is the Lenovo Rapid Shield and and Lenovo Airbag Protection.
 
Could you try disabling them and check for the changes.
 
do let me know..

Hi, I have my G580 for over a year now and all went well - but last night it was on the table - I had closed the screen as I was not going to work on it until later and I heard 2 beeps then nothing - I open the screen and no power - pressed the power button and nothing - I can't remove the battery as the button listed as 1 in the manual never really worked as it was loose but it never bothered me cos I never removed the battery but now it broke and don't have it. I tried to press the power button for a few seconds nothing - same with the power lead on and nothing. When I opened it it was really hot like I never felt it before - particularely the left hand side - so I decided to let it cool down but no luck either. Raging as it is just over one year. and out of warranty of course. any help ? Gilbert

this happen when I accendentaly unplug my machine and suddenlly turned off. It turned off because there is no battery installed when I used it. Then I installed the battery and tried to turn it on again but it's giving me a random beep sound, like there's no pattern. I pressed the power button for a few seconds and it restart booting on the OS. I'm running windows 8. When it finally boot the Lenovo solution center prompt me that my battery are not genuine. It was the original battery that came along with the laptop. and I never had this problem before. I tried to restart thinking that maybe its just a glitch. Then it's giving a random beep again and not booting. What I did was I tried to system restore, didn't fix the problem.Tried to troubleshoot. put the battery removed the AC, same problem.removed the battery, put back the AC nothings change. I suspect the motherboard is fried or a part of it that has to do something with the battery. Hope to get some response.

hello.. My lenovo g580 laptop (Windows 8) has booting problem. The lenovo startup screen shows up and do not boot. I was told that the problem was with my hard disk by a local support center. So I did replace my hard disk 2 days back and my laptop just worked fine then. But now I have the same booting issue. I couldn't enter the BIOS also. Any help would be appreciated. Thank u!

Hi All, I own the Lenovo G580 Laptop that has the Windows 8 64 bit.It seems that it has a virus and I want to remove it with external anti-virus of NOD32.Due to it I need to change the booting sequence that it would start from the disk-on-key instead of the hard disk.Can someone tell how to change it and finally remove that virus? Sincerely yours,Shimon.

Answer:Change the booting sequence of the Lenovo G580 Windows 8 64 Bit

When starting up quickly press F2.Go to the "Boot" category by using your arrow keys.Go down to your external drive that is connected.Press F6 until it is first on the Boot Priorities list.Exit and Save.Restart your computer and it should be now booting from your external harddrive.

I've had my laptop for 1-2 years and have so far been somewhat satisfied with it, until I ran into this problem.Whenever I start up my laptop, the lenovo screen will appear- sometimes it says 'Preparing automatic repair' underneath. About a minute later, this screen will disappear and the screen will turn completely black. After about 4-5 minutes, the lenovo screen will appear again, and then I get the Win 8 error message 'Your PC ran into an error and has to restart'. And then will restart, and repeat the cycle.Also, this is not relevant to the main issue- but the cable controlling backlighting has been damaged, and so I need to shine a light onto my screen to see what's on the monitor and an external monitor will not work until I install drivers- and so it is difficult to actually see the display until I repair said cable. When I connect a HDMI, it will just display the black screen- and so I know that there is nothing on the display at this point.I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem or not- as I took my computer apart to fix one of the hinges a couple of weeks ago. I've also tried the onekey recovery button. No luck either unfortunately.Thanks in advanceLewis

Answer:Lenovo G580 booting problem - Boot then black screen, then restart

Hi Lewis,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is displaying black screen in the Inbuilt/External Display. Hence, I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and BIOS reset. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue.
Now access the BIOS menu press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards
Shiva Kumar

I have 2 PCs, both running XP Pro SP2.
One is mine and one is my wife?s.
Both are connected to a Linksys BEFSR41 v3 router which is then connected to a cable modem.
Both can connect at high speed to the internet.
Both are on the same workgroup and have unique names.
They can see each other in the workgroup.
They can ping each other.
I can browse all shared drives in both directions from both PCs.
Everything seems to be working perfectly except if I try and transfer a file from my PC to my wife?s it takes approx 2 minutes per MB. However if I transfer a file the other way it works flawlessly and at high speed.

I have checked that all the required services are running and that there is only one master browser.

I have changed all the cables and tried different ports on the router.

NetMeter shows a maximum transfer speed of about 250kbps and the networking tab in task manager shows a network utilization of only 1%

Any advice would be gratefully received, as this is slowly driving me insane.
 

Answer:Slow file transfer in one direction, quick transfer the other way!

You should try data transfer using something other than WInbdows Networking. Set up some FTP server software for example. This way you can see if the problem is with the network or with Windows.

Disable software firewalls and antivirus on the computers?

Hi All.
 
I have been facing this issue since last two weeks.
 
I have Lenovo 580. Currently in Windows 7 - x64.
 
Suddenly both my USB 3.0 ports stopped working. I tested by inserting multiple pen drives, external hard discs and they weren't even getting the power.
 
When I go to Device Manager, under Universal Serial Bus Controller -> There is an exclamation mark next to : Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller.
 
Read few posts here, tried installing all sorts of drivers from Lenovo, Intel.
Thinking that OS reinstallation would help, I installed Windows 10, 8.1, 8 & now in 7.
But the ports aren't getting the required power or detected. 
 
 
I am sure I am missing something. Can someone please help me or point me to the right direction to fix this ? :-(
 
Thank you in advance.

Answer:G580 - USB 3.0 Ports - Unable to start - Code 10 - Lenovo G580 - Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & 10. Please help...

hi icykash,
 
From the steps that you've tried, it does look like there's a hardware problem on the USB 3.0 ports (especially if you're getting Code 33 or 43 from the Device Manager).
 
 
Error codes in Device Manager
 
Last thing that you probably try:
1. Run the Hardware devices are not working  or the Diagnose and fix Windows USB problems tool from microsoft.
 
2. Shutdown the machine, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then hold the power button for 20secs (this drains any electric charge that's left on the machine).
 
When finished, plug-in the AC adapter and turn on the machine then hit F2 to boot into the BIOS. Once In the BIOS, hit F9 to load default settings then hit F10 to save and exit (this resets the hardware configuration of the machine to default).
 
When the machine boots back into Windows, check if the USB 3.0 ports are now working,
 
In case this still doesn't fixes the issue then I recommend you will need to send the unit for service.
 
Support phone list
 
 
Let me know if this works for you.

sorry, if this not the right place please move. I did many google searches cant seem to find the issue Im having, or maybe lack of the right key searches. You guys are my last hope.
I will try to explain my problem as clearly as I can. And so sorry about my bad grammar and spelling, trying to post this asap.

first off give small history of my PC. I bought my PC new Sept 2001. A HP Pavilion with 1.3 ghz, 256ram, and a 55gig hard-drive originally came with WinMe, since then I upgraded to XP. I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns
While playing Winamp and running a torrent with speeds of more than 400+ the audio would become choppy. This also happen when I would open FF, IE or any program while running Winamp, the audio would be choppy.

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

Virus scanners, Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot would also take much longer than usual.

I recently bought a Yoga 900 Laptop running Windows 10 Home and I am facing a peculiar problem. I normally back up my files in external usb drives. I have some portable external drives (2.5 inch) and some desktop external drives (3.5 inch). All are USB 3.0 compliant. The desktop external drives are separately powered while the portable one are only connected via a USB 3.0 cable. When I transfer video files to the portable external drives from my Yoga 900 I get an average transfer speed of 125 MB/s. There is no interruption during this transfer. When I transfer the same video file to the desktop external drives the transfer is very very slow and for extensive periods of time it shows transfer speed of 0MB/s. The total time taken is triple that of the portable drives. After noticing this, I have reinstalled windows, updated all hardware drivers from the Lenovo website. Cleaned the registry and even done selective start up by removing some 3rd party start up programs, I have also switched off write caching and switched it back on again but the problem still remains. I also find that when I connect 2 external USB drives (one portable and one desktop) and I try to transfer the same video files from the porrtable to the desktop there is no problem there also. It is only transferring files from the internal Laptop drive that has this issue. I have 2 other laptops (one running Windows 10 Pro and one running Windows 10 Home) and when I transfer the same f...

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 900 file transfer problem

This may be a bug in windows rather than a hardware issue.  There are many similar threads on other sites, desktops, notebooks and tablets that use Windows 10 that are having this problem.
 
Try running a free "Live DVD" of Linux to check your files for errors, run CCleaner, Defrag and see if it improves.
 
Good luck.

I have two computers with identical motherboard and memory. CPU in each are i7 930 and i7 980.
I had to transfer some video files from computer 1 to computer 2. Each of the 4 files were 1.2Gb - 1.5Gb in size.
A thumb drive was connected to computer 1 and the files took forever to transfer at a rate of about 1.2Mb/s. Then that same thumb drive was connected to computer 2 and the files transferred quickly at a rate of 12Mb/s. Given that I used the same thumb drive on both computers I can't blame it for the disparity in performance.
Computer 1 is a little older and has a lot of software installed while computer 2 is fairly new with almost nothing installed yet. I expect that the 10x difference in file transfer speed is due to processes running in the background on computer 1, since no programs were running at the time. But how do I go about distinguishing which of the many processes are important and able to be terminated while leaving the ones required to run windows when I need faster transfer speed?
Or am I off track and some other problem is at work here??

Answer:Slow USB File Transfer

Have you tried some other USB ports in the older computer? Does Windows give a message like this device could perform faster? And also what the specification of the thumb drive - USB 2.0 or 3.0? Does the port in your computer have the same spec?

What antivirus are you using? I've found Windows Defender to be particularly intrusive when copying files. If I turn off the real-time monitoring temporarily it often speeds things up (or use a different antivirus). YMMV.

It does look a bit slow but usb flash drives can be very slow on writing. This is particularly true if you are writing a lot of small files. I suspect there is no fix.

I got everything working, I can access the internet and my other home computers. All the computers say they are connected at Gigabit speed now instead of the 100MBS. The thing is when I try to transfer files between the computers. They are moving about as fast as before. Is there some setting I should change to unleash the full bandwidth?

How did you test transfers? What file sizes did you use? What performance are you seeing, in MBytes/s?

Also, pick a couple of the fastest/newest computers, and list the specs including the OS, CPU, NIC, motherboard and drives.

Beyond that, the next step in diagnostics would be to measure the network performance without the drives being involved. This can be done by downloading and using iperf 1.7 as follows:

On the "server" machine, run
iperf -s

on the "client" machine, run
iperf -c server -l 64k -t 15 -i 3 -r

where server is the name or IP of the "server" machine.

Question: Slow file transfer

I have just set up my network again which I used to have on my XP pc and found the file transfer to my NAS to be very slow indeed. It took over 10 minutes to transfer just a 1GB file. Is there a way to speed it up ?

The NAS is connected via wifi. My router is a Billion Bi-Pac 7402NX.

Answer:Slow file transfer

What speed is the router? The older G speed? Maybe the new PC is connecting at a slower wi-fi speed? If the Router is not the "n" speed you may need to replace the router with a new N speed model. The new Dell probably has N speed capability.

Run a link test and see what you get on that, compared to what you had with the old XP machine or what the ISP's rated speed is. Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

Answer:File Transfer Slow?

the problem might be that the drivers you downloaded and installed have been ignored. try manually installing them from device manager. there are other threads showing the same issue and there should be a tutorial on how to manually install drivers. My USB didn't work right until I manually updated the drivers using device manager> install from specific location. Not sure what your hardware is but check for the correct USB2 drivers in system devices and in the USB controller. Installing the right ones will fix your problem

Hello, A couple of days ago I purchased a Lenovo K320-30192GU computer.  I had tested most of it's components from the first day to see if they are working properly.  Everything seemed fine until I started to use USB flash drives.  I own four USB flash drives that I had purchased for use on an older Windows XP computer.  When I first used a USB flash drive (4 gigabyte capacity) it copied data from the computer quickly.  I had since installed software and my scanner but I have also noticed a strange situation using USB flash drives.  The flash drive I had originally used to copy files now started to copy some files quickly and others very slowly.  I decided to restore the computer back to the original factory state.  I then installed the same files into the computer to test the USB flash drive and it copied all of the files quickly.  This time around I did not install my scanner all I did was uninstall the pre-installed antivirus software and then install my software.  I tested the USB flash drive and sure enough it copied some files quickly and others incredibly slow.   My computer came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed.  I purchased a Windows 7 compatible flash drive (4 gigabyte capacity) that is supposed to have faster transferring and copying speeds.  I tested the new USB flash drive with the files and it copied some files quickly but others painfully slow.  I tested the ne...

New W530 Type 2436-CTO with Win 7 Pro, 16gb RAM, 256gb SSD.  This is my second W530 Problem when I boot is it boots very quickly to the Welcome screen and then instead of going to the Win 7 Home screen, the screen goes dark except for the cursor and stays dark with hard drive activiity for about 45 to 55 seconds before the home screen pops up.  After than the computer runs as normal and very fast. Some thing in the boot sequence must be the problem.  I did all the Windows updates, MS updates and Lenovo updates.  I am mainly a  user so any help needs to be specific with detail directions.  Hate to send it back when it all works perfectly except it takes near two minutes to boot. Last W530 boot like lightning - Please help me

We use a variety of model of laptop and workstation and build them using Microsoft ConfigMgr (SCCM), using PXE boot to get into Windows PE, where SCCM then applies the image and software.We are finding the Lenovo units take a long time (between 7 and 15 minutes) to proceed from when we start the PXE boot and when the unit loads into Windows PE.  It sits there saying "Loading files..." and thats where it sits for that time. Lower spec'd models, such as DELL 7xxx series, proceed much quicker.  We are using Secure Boot, with UEFI when we PXE boot.  We use same settings on DELLs when we PXE boot. If anyone is also experiencing this issue, we would love to know a fix, as it is adding build time to what is otherwise a fantastic unit.

Hello,

I have this weird problem, I have a Pentium 3 1GHZ in Cross-Over with a AMD 64 3500+ computer.

I have internet sharing set up as well as mapped drives to the drives of each other.

The internet speed on the Pentium 3 is provided by the AMD computer. The P3 computer gets the maximum internet speed that my ISP offers which is 300kb/sec, but when I transfer a file over the network using the mapped drives it takes about 30 minutes for a 100mb file.

Both computers are using 100mbps network cards. I don't understand why it is taking so long to transfer a file, yet the internet speed is very fast through the same network cable.

wasnt sure where to put this, so this will do,

basically iv noticed that if im copying files from a non Bitlocked drive to a Bitlocked one, it goes ridiculously slowly, Ie. normal transfer is 20-30MB/s Bitlocker is 4-9MB/s

now im assuming that this is simply because Windows is encrypting it as it goes, i just wanted to check that there is not actually something wrong

Answer:Slow Bitlocker File transfer

Encryption is a slow slow process. Where are you transferring the file? Two different HDDs? Separate partitions? External USB drive?

Answer:Slow performance W98 file transfer

Not enough information to make much of a guess. W98 is generally slower networking than NT based O/S versions, but that seems like a lot.

It could be based on disk speeds, NIC speeds, processor speeds, etc. A lot of things affect file transfer speed speed over the network.

I just booted my dual-boot machine into W98 and copied a 584mb ISO image to it from my 2K machine, 1:20 was the copy time. 100mbit Netgear card in the machine, 800mhz, 7200 RPM drive.

Your results appear substandard, you may want to look at configuration issues.

Hello everyone, i'm fairly new to home networking and i'm looking for some info/advice on how to speed up my current setup.

I have a Linksys E2000 wireless router running the latest firmware 1.0.04 Build 7. My internet is a 50 Mbps connection. My wireless band is 2.4 GHz, network mode is mixed, channel width is 20 MHz only, ussing channel 8 and WPA personal security mode.

I have 1 main computer hardwired to the router, 1 laptop with wireless G capabilities and 1 desktop with an Asus wireless N usb adapter. All computers are running Win 7 premium or ultimate.

When using any of the computers for web browsing or torrents the speeds are very good. Whenever I transfer files from the hardwired computer to either of the computers connected via wireless the speeds seem very slow and I can't get a speed higher than 2 Mbps.

I'm wondering if there is anything i can do to speed up my transfer rates between computers or if my speeds are normal and I just have to deal with them.

Thank you in advance for your help

Hi all

Wasn't sure to post here or in networking forum but the issue I'm having is the transfer speeds between Homegroup computers.

I have a laptop & desktop both running Win 7 which are both connected to each other with the Homegroup.

When I copy a file, such as a video file, from laptop to the desktop its very slow. Like 1 Mb/sec or something. My laptop is connected to my router using wireless. I have, in the past connected my laptop via the Lan port but it made little or no difference.

I've read lots on Google regarding this, but can't find any real solutions???

Answer:Slow file transfer in Homegroup

How fast is your router rated for? If it's a generic qwest router it will be slow. Also if your laptop has a wireless g network card it'll be slow. You'll need a gigabit router, and a wireless N card (300megabit) to get max transfer speed.

Also it'll depend on your hard drive write/read speed. Remember that the transfer speed will be limited by the slowest computer. I have a gigabit router, and high speed wireless cards but i can only get a max transfer speed of like 20mB/s.

Hi i have bought a notebook with vista 32 bit home basic and didnt like vista so i upgraded it to windows 7 64bit after 1 day usage. Generally i found new os fine but i have a problem with file copying from my desktop (running xp sp3). My transfer speed is only 1.5 mbyte per second. Notebook has atheros 5007eg (54mbit) wireless lan and desktop has realtek gigabit lan. And my router is airties rt-205 with 125mbit wireless signal.
I have done the following things but it's still same.

*netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable.
*Turn off Remote Differential Compression.
*Disabled Remote Assistance.
*Unchecked ipv6.

Is there any other way to fix the problem?

Answer:Slow File Transfer Over Network

You can try disabling Netbios in the ip config pages for each machine. Install NetBEUI to each machine. Google it. Not difficult. Reboot each machine after.

Now test your speeds.

If the notebook is the only machine on your network that uses wireless, set the router to G standard for wireless. Not Super G, or any other fancy name. Only G. If there is an 802.11g Only Mode in the router's settings, apply that.

If there is a preamble setting in the router, set it to short.

Hi

Anyone else have this problem - or a solution?

I have 9 hard drives - 7 SATA and 2 IDE. When transferring RAW photo files from my working folder to an archive folder on another hard drive, I can only transfer 1 lots of files. When I try any transfer more nothing happens.

The dialgoue box comes up - saying moving items - but the speed is 0 bytes/sec.

Sometimes I just leave it to see what happens - today it ran for 1 hour and transferred no files. I was trying to transfer 142 RAW files (2.7gb).

Thinking it must be a SATA controller problem, I've put each hard drive on a different controller. Swapped hard drives around.

Strange thing is, I can transfer other files (from different hard drives) at the same time as I'm getting 0 bytes/sec - and they transfer ok.

The only way I'm able to transfer the files when I get this problem, is to shut down and reboot, then transfer (which goes ok). After that, I'm unable to transfer any more.

I'm running Vista 64 Ultimate with SP1 (fully up to date), the motherboard is a Gigabyte X48 Ds5 with a quad core Q9550.

Sorry this is so long, anyone have this problem or any ideas?

I've been having a lot of problems trying to get effective file transfers working between Windows 7 machines in my home network. I have a desktop machine running Win 7 64 bit, and a laptop running Win 7 64 bit also.

The laptop has a Realtek wireless NIC (120 Mbps). My desktop uses a Dlink DWA-552 NIC (300 Mbps).

The router is a Linksys WRT610N situated in the middle of the house, broadcasting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz signals.

The NIC and the router are both running the most recent firmware.

The main way I've been testing is by taking a 1 GB file, and placing it into the Documents folder on my desktop, and then using Homegroup on the laptop to try and grab the file, and put it onto the C: drive of the laptop.

All I've been able to get is 65 KB/s. This is with the same NIC and router that I was using on a pair of older WinXP machines just last fall. With those two machines, which were running on like 4 or 5 year old hardware, I was able to transfer that 1 GB file in about 8 and a half minutes. With Windows 7, that same file takes about 9 hours (according to Windows.....I've always killed my attempts after the first hour of waiting for the file to move).

I've been reading, and some people have posted online about McAfee being part of the problem....on Vista at least. So, I told a friend/business associate about my problems, and he commented he's having the same issues with Windows 7, which is a problem as he's a programmer, so often needs to deploy large files to clien...

Answer:Win 7 slow file transfer speed

There are no such issues with Windows 7, although certain A/V software, third party firewalls, third party networking programs, or uncompatible drivers all seem to cause these sorts of problems.

Most likely it's something you installed that is causing this problem. I have five Homegroup machines which are all different, some are ten years old and I have no such problems. Most likely you will need to uninstall which ever A/V is causing the problem completely to resolve the problem.

Hi all,

This has been a bit of an annoyance rather than a major problem, but I hope someone can help me. For some reason, when I use my laptop to sign on to MSN Messenger 7.5, the file transfer is painfully slow. It started becoming this way around early December, and I tried multiple System Restores to get it back to normal, but without much luck. Basically when a friend sends me a file, I'll receive the file normally, then it slows down to receiving like only 1 kb/sec, until it finally stops sending, giving me an "Error in File Transfer" message.

I generally use this laptop at school, and the school has a firewall in our network, but prior to December, I was able to send and receive files fine even from school.

Can someone please look at my computer specs and let me know if there's any viruses/spyware that could be causing this? If not, maybe there's an issue with the settings on my MSN Messenger? Please reply.

Thanks,

Kwok

I use DVD+RW to back up my data. When I actually needed to retrieve some of this data from discs, my DVD writers spin very slowly, make all sorts of noises and the file transfer speed from the disc to my Desktop is less than 100KB/sec. These are a mix of web pages, text files, .jpegs, .pdfs, etc.

My chipset drivers are up to date, and DMA is enabled in Device Manager (IDE mode). AHCI mode makes Windows Explorer hang. What am I missing? If I ever need to totally rebuild my system from backups, I'll be here for months.

Added info: When dual-booting into XP Home SP3, the DVD drives spin up fast, and the transfer takes 6 minutes, 5 seconds. 526MB divided by 365 seconds = 1.44MB/sec

Then update Windows defender and perform a full scan of your unit. If there are no virus /spam etc detected you can start doing a disk cleanup and defragmentation through the control panel. See if the speed improves after doing the above.

Hi All,
Firstly, what a great site. Lots of useful tips and tricks and very helpful!

Anyway, I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why I can't get decent file transfer speeds between my two Vista machines (Home Premium x64 SP1 and Ultimate 32bit SP1). If I attempt to transer a 1GB file between the two Vista machines I get about 14MB/s, however if I transfer the same file between either of those machines and my Mac laptop it get about 40MB/s.

So far I've tried the following to no affect:

the steps mentioned in the Window Auto Tuning tutorial but it didn't seem to help.tried transfering the file between the two Vista machines using FileZilla (a free FTP server) and that showed the same slow network speeds.changed over the network cables to brand new CAT6 cables but that didn't help.
Does anyone have ideas or hints?

Answer:slow file transfer between vista machines

Tried a few more things with no success:

disabled IPV6 by unchecking the Internet Protocol Version 6 checkbox.reduced the MTU size to 1462 (although I didn't get the fragmentation messages until I disabled IPV6)reverted to SMB2 (although I couldn't see how that would make a difference as FTP is as slow the SMB).

I would like to report very slow file transfer over ethernet on Vista 64 Business w/ SP1. I was trying to copy 90GB of file from one computer to another on a local network. The communication was happening between a Win2k Pro workstation and Vista 64. The transfer rate was averaging around 2MB/sec , which is darn slow. I then tried to do the same 90GB file transfer, this time between the Win2k workstation and a Linux (fedora 9 using Gnome desktop mananger) workstation,on the same network, with the same hardware configuration as the Vista64. The average transfer rate was about 7.5MB/sec, which is close to 4x faster. What gives? I think that a modern OS like Vista 64 should be able to do much better. I am not sure if this should be acceptable performance for today's systems when 1.5 TB hard drives can be purchased for fairly cheap.

Anyone have any suggestions or comments to speed up the transfer rate?

btw, all computers are connected via a 100Mb/sec switch
 

Answer:Vista64 slow file transfer woes

Have you done the normal tweaks associated with this as of yet? If not, they are to disable both Link-Layer items and IPv6 in the TCP/IP configuration, and also to remove Remote Differential Compression from the Programs and Features Control Panel applet.

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to fix a slight problem I have, but I'm afraid I'm out of ideas and Google isn't helping much.

I have a Windows 2003 server machine with a GB ethernet adapter in it, and I use the server to hold files and act as a gateway. However, when I try to copy (large) files to the server, network utilization is about 50% for 3-4 seconds, then bottoms out to .5%-5% and keeps fluctuating in that range until it finishes or I stop it. I am able to copy files from the server at an acceptable speed without any trouble, though (30-50% utilization).

I know the problem can't be my own machine because I'm able to transfer large files to and from other Windows XP Pro machines without any problem. Anyone have an idea of what might be causing this and how to fix it?

Thanks,
Tom

P.S. I tried to search for something related to this, but I couldn't find anything.

::Edit:: I should mention the server is also a domain controller.

Hi guys,

I have a D-Link DGL-4500 connecting 3 machines: mine, my wife's, and the tv room, which is wireless using a Linksys WMP54G.

The problem is I can't seem to transfer large files wirelessly at an acceptable speed.

When I first boot up the tv room, the connection is good, 54Mbps, as is signal strength. Speed tests report the same internet bandwidth we get on the two wired machines. However, when I attempt to drag a file to the tv room machine, the connection speed drops to 24-38Mbps (which seems more than ample), but transfer rates are less than 1Mb, usually about 300-800 KB/s.

This means an 11GB file will take more than 4 hours! I can drag that same file to the wife's machine in just a few minutes. 4 hours, just for a friggen file, really?

Not sure what to do? I've tried wireless g only, wireless n & g, using 128-bit encryption, not using it, updating anything I could find... it's all the same in the end, crap transfer rates. I will admit this card came from Tiger and cost only $12.00. I guess I was not paying close enough attention because it's a refurb. It fits, and in all other respects it seems to work just fine, just not with its real only intended purpose.

Btw... the tv room is using 32-bit 7, fully updated as of this morning.

Answer:Slow wireless file transfer rates.

I think you need to upgrade your Linksys WMP54G (wireless G, max 54Mbps) with a wireless N adapter in your TV room, which is something like 6 times faster or 298 Mbps. You have a good router that is capable of wireless N, so why hobble yourself with wireless G clients? Wireless N is mega faster.

What we had, 4 port d-link router and 2 hubs. 7 machines on the network. One database folder of about 500MB (XP machine) backed up to another XP machine. Took about 6 to 7 minutes daily.

What we have now: same d-link router and a new 16 port d-link switch. First day for this setup. Tried the 500MB folder backup, at 14 minutes it was only about 50% done. Tried backing up much smaller folders from other machines, also extremely slow.

What is the problem with the transfer rate between these machines?

TIA

Since updating to Windows 10 I've been having intermittent problems with accessing and transferring files from my Contour GPS camera. When I plug the camera in Windows Explorer will not automatically open (which I have set it to do). Navigating to it manually I find it often takes minutes at a time to navigate through it's directories.

When copying files off it, the transfer will run at 355kb/s, which is ridiculous to say the least. Prior to upgrading it would behave "normally", that is to say navigating was fine, and transfers were quick. I should also mention that this does not always happen, but usually does. Until today I could just restart Windows and then it would behave like normal.

Unfortunately, today I have already reset my computer half a dozen times and it is still behaving in this unacceptably slow manner. I tried updating the drivers for it, but Windows claims they are up to date. I'm at my wits end with this issue, and it is driving me insane not being able to view / transfer files properly. I have to leave my PC on overnight just to transfer a single video from it.

Let me know if there's any additional information I can provide to help get this issue resolved.

Hi everyone,

I've got a little networking problem and hope someone can help...

I have a Dell XPS 15Z with gigabit ethernet port, have dgs 1005d gigabit switch and WDTV live hub also with gigabit "capability"... The network cables should be fine...

The issue is that the file transfer (these are usually HD movies) from my laptop to WDTV are rather slow having in mind it's a gigabit network connection... The speed tops 15 MB/s. Same thing if I connect WDTV directly with my laptop. Any advice?

The switch indicates (green light) it has set-up a gigabit connection both with WDTV and my laptop.

I have disabled autotuning, RDC, AV software etc. Tried with jumbo frames, disabling flow control - EVERYTHING

I'm pretty desperate, so if someone out here could help, I would appreciate it...

Thanks

Answer:Gigabit network SLOW file transfer

Welcome to SF,

From your computer's Device Manager, locate the Network Adapter, Advanced Tab then find Link Speed and Duplex, change the setting here from Auto Detect to Auto negotiate 1000mbps, see if that helps.

XP (still on SP2, can't make the change yet)

I noticed in the last couple of days that downloads, drag n' drop, opening compressed files, sending files etc. would slow to a crawl while finishing the last 1 to 5%. It became more obvious, of course, with larger files. I've got a P4 2.4 that would be working around 50% during that last few percent.

I couldn't figure out what I might have done until I remembered I had downloaded and installed the Oct 15 updates that MS specifically recommended were appropriate to SP2. So, I uninstalled all the Oct 15 updates and all seems right again.

My questions;
Has this happened to anyone else and, if so,
which of the updates could be at fault?

I don't like missing security updates and would like to reinstall the harmless ones.

Hi,

I am new to windows 7 and I am experiencing a small network problem. I can only transfer files with 1,3MB/s which is only like 20% of what 56Mbps should teoretically perform.

Here is my setup:
Computer A: Laptop - connected with wireless-n (144 Mbps according to network and sharing center) - win 7 prof 64-bit
Computer B: Desktop - coneected with wireless-b (56 Mbps according to network and sharing center) - win 7 prof 64-bit
Router: Linksys WRT160N V2

I am really disapointed that I can't even get 50 or 75% out of the teoretically speed

Answer:Slow wireless file transfer speed

There's a little confusion on what the terms mean.

First off, when Windows shows a connection at 144Mbps, it refers to 144 Mega *bits* per second. Notice the small "b": Mbps.

Data transfers however tend to be measured in Mega Bytes per second: MBps - See the big "B"?

Wireless speeds for 802.11g top out at a 54Mbps data rate. But actual throughput is about half that, 25Mbps at best. Convert that to MBps and you get something around 3MBps. This is on a good day, with the wind at you back on every other 2nd Tuesday in leap year.

If you share the wireless connection with other devices (Like another laptop), all bets are off. It can and will be considerably less. Also take into account interference from other wireless routers, other devices like cordless phones in the same band, microwave ovens, etc. and the number goes down even more.

In your case, the bottleneck is Computer B with it's 802.11g connection. Since you already have an 802.11n wireless router and 802.11n on the laptop it's worth it to swap the wireless card on the desktop or just wire it directly to the router if you can. Be advised though, in order to get full speeds on 80.211n the ethernet connection to the router must be Gigabit Ethernet.

Hi -

I have a AX4SPE mobo with 1 GB of DDR ram installed. I'm running WinXP SP2 with all current patches. I have five HDs, 2 Maxtor160GB Maxtors, a 80GB Maxtor, a Seagate? 200GB sata and a 300GB Maxtor USB external drive.

At 1:30 am I started to copy 146GB of data from the sata drive to the usb drive, it took approximately 14 hours to complete. I downloaded FreshDiagnose and it reports the write speed of the usb drive at 21.9GB/s which if my calculations are correct should have taken about two hours to copy the files. I obviously have some sort of system problem but I'm not sure how to proceed.

I have the sata disk partioned into three logical drives and FreshDiagnose reports a write/read of about 3.3/197 MB/s. Other drives report better numbers but the two Maxtor 160GB drives are returning different numbers, 30.6/1838 and 22.3/1338.

Defrag is recommending that all the drives be defragmented and I havbe a Ghost backup of my C drive which is on the really slow sata disk but I'd appreciate some input before trying to defrag the drives.

Thanks

Hi,

I have a Windows MCE PC and a Vista PC connected via wired CAT5 through a D-link DL524 router. If I initiate a file transfer using the Vista PC from the MCE PC to the Vista PC or from the Vista PC to the MCE PC the transfer will only go to about 3MB/s. However, if I transfer the same file using the MCE PC I get much faster rates, maximum about 80 MB/s.

It doesn't matter which directio the transfer goes; if it is initiated by the Vista PC it is slow, if it is initiated by the MCE PC it goes fast.

What could be causing this slowness on my Vista PC? Is there anything I can try to get it to acceptable levels?

Slow wireless file transfer within LAN over 2.4Ghz

This really makes no sense to me. Very weird scenario.

This is the 2nd day I own the TP-LINK WDR-3600 which is a dual band router. The first day, everything is operating normally where file transfer within LAN over wireless on 2.4GHz is okay (70Mbps down according to LAN Speed Test) but now I am having issue with wireless file transfer within LAN over the 2.4Ghz.

When I run an Internet speed test via www.speedtest.net, I get the result of 30.87Mbps download and 5.92Mbps upload, the WAN speed seems very reasonable and matches the speed advertised by my ISP Provider (Comcast).

The issue I have is slow wireless file transfer within LAN over 2.4Ghz. I have a NAS in my LAN. I use "Lan Speed Test (Lite)" to conduct my throughput test. The result of my LAN throughput test showed that I only get 2.01Mbps download. I conducted the same test on two different computers with similar results. The two wireless NIC that I used for testing is
1) ASUS USB-N13 300Mbps wireless adapter installed on my Windows 7 64bit OS.
2) TP-LINK TL-WN822N 300Mbps

However on my 5Ghz network, I can get 78Mbps download from the same NAS in my LAN.

The file transfer over wired from my NAS to a computer is over 300+Mbps download.

I am not sure what's going on there. This seems like a problem specific to file transfer within LAN over 2.4Ghz.

Thoughts?

Thanks for reading!
 

Answer:Slow wireless file transfer within LAN over 2.4Ghz

Probably interference on the 2.4Ghz band. Your measured throughput matches what a 48Mbps wireless link should see.

How many files totaling 200 MB? If it is several hundred files then that is going to be the root of the problem....

Also, do you have an antimalware product installed with realtime scanning enabled? If so, that is going to multiply the effect, as it is going to scan each file as it is accessed, then again as it is copied to the new location, thereby severely slowing your throughput.

Also, the PC becomes extremely unresponsive from the moment the external hard drive is plugged in. I had not had this issue previously and the file transfer speed was around 30 MB/s every time.

Answer:Slow internal file transfer on Win 7 Pro RAID1 disk

Intel's onboard SATA's can perform a bit strangely, that's why I'm reluctant to use it and would prefer an dedicated RAID card instead. Nevertheless try some different bench-marking software and see if you get the same transfer rates.

Not sure if you would need to, but check segates website and see if they have anything about the drives (not given us the model otherwise I would have looked for myself) about being used in RAID configurations, or firmware updates.

I have two laptops running XP Home. Both have integrated wireless cards and happily access the Internet wirelessly via an 802.11b router, but it's not the Internet I'm having problems with. I want to transfer some large files (6-7GB) from one computer to the other. I've 'shared' the folders containing the files I want to transfer and can drag and drop the files between the two computers. So far, so good. The problem is this all happens incredibly slowly! It takes upwards of 90mins to transfer a 500MB file. Is this normal, or should it be happening faster than this? Both computers are connected to the network at 11Mbps.
 

Answer:Noob wireless network - slow file transfer

While your machine says you are connected at 11Mbit/s, you won't transfer files that fast. You'll only really get 3 to 3.5 Mbit/s, which is 375KB/s. So to transfer 500MB at 3Mbit/s, it should take about 22.5 minutes. If it is taking 90 min, I'd say get some network cables and temporarily connect them just to transfer the files.

When you are transferring, go to your task manager and click on the networking tab. It should tell you what you are really connected at and percent utilized...that will tell you how fast you really are transferring. You could also get a program called DU Meter, that will tell you right away your transfer speeds.

Hi Everyone,

I just got a new laptop which runs Windows XP Professional.

My network is on a cable/DSL router. One computer runs Win2000 and one runs Win98se.

My old laptop ran Win2000 Professional. Everything was running great.

Now with XP Professional, file transfer between XP and the other computers is slow (although much better after some tweaking) but I still can't get the printing to speed up.

When I press CTRL-P, it takes about half a minute for the print dialogue box to pop up!

I know I'm not the only one with these problems, I've spent the last few days going through newsgroups and other discussion boards, but I've been finding more people complaining of the same problem than any fixes.

I did do the few tweaks I saw recommended (which I'll post if anyone requests) and it seemed to help the transfer rate (although it's still much slower than it should be) but the printing is just ridiculous!


Has anyone found any solution to these problems?


Thanks
Nathalie

hi. i have a SD camera memory 8GB, and everytime i want to copy images i taken from that to my pc (windows 7-32 bit) it takes tooooo much time for just loading thumbnails of my images, and then i copy them to my hard disk and again it takes toooooo much more time to do that. briefly, it calculates for example 2 minutes to copy, but during copying it stops ... stops ... stops .... and that 2 minutes goes to almost 30-40 minutes ! and i always use another laptop to copy files.one year ago i had windows xp and there was no problem with this stuff, i dont know except windows 7 what else is changed, but this is making me crazy !

Hi

I have just set up a wireless network with 2 desktop PC's and a laptop. Desktops are connected via ethernet to a Netgear WGT624v2 router and laptop connected via a Netgear WG511T wireless adapter card. (And router connected to Internet via a Netgear DG632 ADSL modem). All works fine except the wireless LAN part .

I have searched through the posts on this forum and found a number where wireless transfer speeds are slow but my problem is slightly different...

I can connect via wireless to the Internet on the Laptop at good speeds, but when I try to browse shared folders on the desktop PCs from the laptop it takes an age just to open each folder! No problems with getting to the folders, just extremely slow. When I eventually get to the file and copy it or whatever it transfers across at reasonable speeds!

I have disabled all the security features (WEP etc) and placed the laptop a few feet from the router (108Mbps signal!) to try and get to the bottom of the problem but still as slow as for browsing folders!

Can anyone help, please
 

Answer:Wireless LAN: Slow to browse folders but fast file transfer?

You might try applying the registry edit to fix the browsing delay from XP to Win9x computers

Seen it work for more than just that OS.

I have a HP HPE-510t. It is running windows 10, clean install. I have a 240GB SSD, a 1TB SATA drive, and a 3TB SATA drive. All are NTFS formatted. If I transfer a 1GB file to the 3TB drive it makes it to 50% lightning quick and then slows down so slow it looks like it has stopped. Other two drives work fine. Files 560MB and smaller transfer fine. I don't know where the exact breaking point is between 560 and 1GB. Transfers to that drive do the same thing whether it's from those drives, a USB drive, or the network. Can this motherboard just not handle a larger than 2TB drive? I tried to find a BIOS update, but there's not one. Can't find an answer, going crazy, please help!

ok folks.......i am begging someone on here to help me - on the verge of going back to windows 7. Tried everything.
help me. please.

i have an x99 chipset pc, i7 5820k, 16gb ram, gtx nvidia 970 - its a good pc (meant to be anyway............).
it's connected directly to my router, as are a few other pc's in the house including a laptop - all via lan cable, as is my NAS drive.

a few weeks ago i noticed file transfer speeds had dropped, really slow. I've tried all sorts, including 2 fresh formats trying a combination of things. Different slots on the router, different cables, the whole 'large send offload' disabled thing, everything.
None of it works.
I've been doing side by side tests, vs my Asus laptop (also on windows 10, and the last thing i'd expect in the house to work properly) - transferring the same file, from the same location on my NAS, to a local drive (ssd drives both on laptop and on pc).
With the laptop i get average transfer speeds of this 9gb file of 50-70 mb/s, every time, consistently, No problem at all.
With the PC, one time it will start at 55-60 and slow right down. Other times it'll start at 30 and again slow down.
Or it'll stay at 30.
More often than not, it starts at 30-40 then will slow to 15-20.
On the laptop its a consistent 55-65 and stays there for the entire file.

What the hell is wrong with my pc?

Hi.

I have had my A40-151 for over two years now, and until last month I haven't had any problems at all. However, last month, it started to get very slow, and was taking hours to boot up. I got worried that I would lose all the data that I hadn't back up, and so I bought an external drive to transfer the data.

As I was doing this, my laptop started to make squeaking noises, and it was taking up to 12 hours to transfer a single file. I took it back to the place I bought it, and they said that it had crashed and that there wasn't anything that they could do except recover it - and so I lost all my data.

When I got it back, it was ok for a few hours, and then started squeaking again! And I think it may be something to do with the CD/DVD drive. I have uninstalled the drive, and the squeaking seems to have stopped as long as the drive 'drawer' is open! Please help!

How can I get the drive replaced? My laptop is no longer under warranty. Did I loose all that data for nothing?

Anyone have any ideas?

Answer:Satellite A40-151 started very slow and need hours to transfer a single file

Hi,

No the squeaking is likely from the CD/DVD drive being dry, so that the rails the optical rides on squeak while passing. But the long loading is definitely a harddrive problem. Seems like a head crash. More or less the head is what locates and reads/writes data from the HDD. When this crashes it fails to read/write/or locate data on the surface taking longer and longer to save data, transfer data, and load the OS. Two problems independent of each other. If your ASP can not fix the squeaky cd then they can replace it for one that works normally. I hope this has helped you.

Answer:File transfer speeds over LAN network (wired) - very slow, random

Checked Netbios is enabled , not on Default ? (on all PC's on Win 10 , it seems to be an issue for some)

Also if Jumbo Frame is Enabled and your Router or the other PC can't use it , it will cause issues like this . EVERY DEVICE on the LAN MUST Support JumboFrame if you use it. ie my C7 ARCHER can't.... everything else can....

If that doesn't help , this is my goto list I posted in another Thread for them to check too.

I'm having trouble watching video from one of my hard drives (XP). At first I thought it was a codec problem so I uninstalled and reinstalled the codecs but that never worked.
Then I tried watching video on the other hard drive and no problem there.

I confirmed that its a hard drive problem when I tried to copy one of the files from the problematic hard drive, it showed 30mins left where it normally takes 1-2mins.

I checked to see if the channel was in PIO mode but all are in DMA.

Any way around this ?

Using WideBand achieving about 1.5 Mbps with a speed test. When sending email with file attachment of 3.2MB, the time to send or receive the email w/file attachment takes minutes not seconds. A friend with the same BroadBand service using the same email message w/same attachment can do it in 73 seconds. Is there something I'm missing in settings on my system? Or is this an issue with the mail server(s) and MIME?

Thanks.
 

Answer:EMail File Attachment(MIME) transfer speed too slow on WideBand

Well it all depends on what you upload speed is, not your download speed. You likely have 256kpbs or maybe a little higher. That really limits your capability of sending a large attachment quickly.

BTW
