5759 takes 10 seconds to turn on-is that an issue?

Question: 5759 takes 10 seconds to turn on-is that an issue?

Just aquired an Inspiron 5759 which is great and does everything I want apart from one thing - it takes an eternity (10 seconds) to show anything on the screen and as it doesn't have a power light I thought it wasn't turning on the first few times I pressed the power button so obviously pressed it more times than I should have!
I have seen the thread about switching the light at the front to show the HDD activity but as you have to press the fn and H key every time you turn it on it doesn't really help.
This is a real issue for me so is there any way to make it boot quicker?

Preferred Solution: 5759 takes 10 seconds to turn on-is that an issue?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

* Are you booting with the AC adapter connected to the 2015 laptop?* Disconnect all external peripherals (USB hard drive, USB keys, printer, etc.) from the laptop to see if the boot time is faster* The front left LED also indicates power and battery status. You can also turn on Caps Lock LED to verify that the system is on

Hello,
I am having a issues with my new Inspiron 5759. OS-Windows 10. After install Drivers for VGA-Intel and AMD (from Dell support) the LCD monitor gets black.Using a second monitor I understood that Windows is working. Device manager lacks of LCD screen as a device.Also, after the restart (or wake) and plug in power cabel, the laptop always fails to initialize LCD (again black). Regardless of the settings for "sleep," "hibernate" or "off". I have checked all power setting. When I use laptop only with battery, LCD works after "wake".
Is there any patch or driver I can install to resolve this? This is really frustrating from such.
Thanks,
T. Kovachev

So I had a problem with my T500's backlight initially and long story short, disassembling the computer has now caused the problem in the title. Whenever I plug in the battery/charger and push the power button, the fan will spin and the hdd will whirr a bit, but then after about 3 seconds, the fan will stop and the hdd will click off and cease whirring. The computer will no longer respond to the power button regardless of how many times nor how long the power button is held. I'm looking directly at the wires that carry power. Everything seems to be plugged in. I did the lenovo power trick (IE the 10 one second presses followed by the 30 second long press) and the computer does the 1-3-3-1 beep when I take out the RAM. The monitor is not plugged into it in any way, shape, or form. I do not know if this affects it. However, I have tried attaching the monitor and it still does this. Is there a piece that may have been knocked loose or something? I'm willing to try anything right now because at this point it's a literal brick now.

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T500 will turn on for roughly 3 seconds, then turn off and stay off.

Hi npesina, welcome to the forums,
 
there could be different reasons for the system behaving the way you describe, my suggestions;
 
remove all hard, SSD and optical drives to see if you experience the same,
remove all RAM, without replacing the drives, and test to see if you receive a system beep code,
remove all components which had previously been removed to test again.
 
The ultimate test would be to remove everything attached to the mainboard including the CMOS (BIOS) battery excluding the power socket, CPU and the fan. When you attach the power cable the system should come to life, the fan should run and beep codes sound.  After that its really just a case of putting the system back together one component at a time testing inbetween each component replacement, leave the main battery and CMOS battery until last to save having to always connect / disconnect the keyboard in order to turn the system on.
 
If at any point you experience the same issue as now it may well be that the component you replaced at that point or it's attachment socket on the mainboard  is the culprit.

Have a one month old Dell 610 (laptop). Worked great at first, but is getting progressively bad - now almost unusable -- 30 seconds for IE to come up.

This is with "blank" as home page.
Went into msconfig and turned off all non microsoft services, and almost all other startup programs.

cpu usage is 2-3%
Memory usage is about 250M out of 1G
Fully patched XP

BTW - iexplore.exe appears in task manager virtually instantaneously - but the GUI takes 30 seconds. - no cpu usage the entire time

Avant and Mozilla browsers come up fine.
hijack analyzer are attached.

You guys seem to be able to figure this stuff out and I would REALLY appreciate any help.

Dell support says to wipe the disk and reinstall the OS.

Windows Media Player is taking like 3-4 seconds to open after i double click on a file. Why is it taking so long? I dont remember it ever taking that long to initialize on my other machines.

I have 3.0c with 1GB of RAM.

Its WMP 8.0
 

Answer:WMP takes 3-4 seconds to open

I don't use it much, but I just opened it on this rig.

The machine is a dual processor AMD MP2000 MSI setup with a gigabyte of ECC RAM set at "check only". The machine is not overclocked, except the RAM is also set to Turbo timings @ 266fsb. The machine's defragmentation is managed by O&O, and defragmentation is kept below 5%.

WMP has spyware related references removed...AKA Alexia. It seems that I made some other privacy related tweaks to it, but I don't remember for certain. It is not allowed to access the Internet, for any reason, and it does not have any updates at all beyond Version 8.

It took slightly less than one second to open from Start/All Programs/WMP.

I hope this gives you some reference to work with.

I had it for nearly 2 years,Lenovo Y50-70 Touch -2 days ago while playing games on it, I smell a chemical smell coming from it so I immediately shut it down just in case. The next time I turn it on, it was fine the backlit keyboard glow red as usual but no display, and now it shut down after 4 seconds (with the fan running) whenever I turn it on except, sometimes It stay on (but still no display and no fan running).I got no experience into opening pc and such, I I tried opening it up and remove the dust that built us by quite a bit and tried to locate where the chemical smell was from, I though it was probably from the Fan or Coolers as it seems more strong there but not sure. After trying to turn the laptop on a few time the strong smell kind of dissipate a lot, and smell weaker.I been having a hard time trying to pinpoint just which part of the laptop is needed to replace. So if anyone could help me in the right direction it would be great. I just hope it wont have to buy a whole new motherboard x.xAlso idk if thats helpful information, but the first year playing games was fine, but the 2nd year and the laptop kind of overheated so I tried to cut down a bit and the fans were making more noises than ever.

Hello guys, I've been asking a lot of questions lately, I just want to get these resolved.

I run Windows XP Home Edition SP2. I have Firefox 3.0.1 installed with only 1 extension, Adblock Plus. At a cold launch, Firefox takes more than 30 seconds to start (the window appearing). After that, it takes about 15 seconds to load. This has happened as long as I can remember, even with Firefox 2. And yes, without extensions and a clean install, the same time to start.

What can be the problem? I tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling (without uninstalling preferences.) Can completely uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it help? I don't want to lose my prefs and data.

By the way, I have 2GB of RAM, so I don't think that's the problem.
 

Answer:Firefox takes no less than 40 seconds to start

You can always backup your profile if you want to do a clean install of firefox. But not sure restoring the profile would not also restore things back as it is now.
But you could restore just parts.

MozBackup 1.4.8 works great at backups and restore.

Hi, I'm new here I've been asked for help about this problem in like 5 other forums, and noone know what to do. This is my last call, so now it's up to you guys!

So, the problem:
It all started on a LAN.
After the LAN my computer takes about 8 seconds to open a:
Image file
Audio/Music file
Textdocument
And Video.

Other programs such as Flash, Photoshop, etc etc runs normally and there is no delay at all.
So I've been googling this alot, and found out that it have to be something to do with a "Broken local network link" or something like that.

What I already have tried to solve my problem:
Defragment C-disk
Virus-scan (used 4 programs as kaspersky, ad-aware etc)
System Restore
Copy the pictures and open them on another disk
Install another picture-viewer program
Quit sharing files on Local area network

Interesting things:
When I load windows in "Safe mode without internet connection" everything works perfectly! But when I start "Safe mode with internet connection" it is the same problem again.
Also, when I unplugg the internet cable everything is good again, and no delay, but as soon as I plugg it back in it starts to lagg...

Please could anyone help me?

(Sorry for my bad english)

Hi!
We encounter the problem that on Windows 7 systems an ipconfig /release takes several seconds. The range the command takes goes from 1 second to over 20 seconds. 
On Windows 10 this behavior does not seem to exist. Can it be fixed on Windows 7 or is it somewhere documented?

I upgraded from Win 8 Pro with Media Center to 8.1 Pro with Media Center. Upgrade went smooth (but what's with going completely thru the install BEFORE asking if you accept the new license?)

But now it takes 15 seconds to open the right click menu on the desktop as opposed to probably less than 1/10 of a second before. All other right clicks seem normal. No significant CPU usage during the wait.

If it matters, I'm pretty damn vanilla but I do have Start8 and ModernMix.

Also if its significant, Catalyst Control Panel won't start (I'll reinstall the latest but it was current less than a week ago).

Also my secondary monitor is set to the correct resolution (1920x1080) but its shrunk with a more than half inch black border around it. I'm hoping the Catalyst/driver reinstall fixes this too.

Answer:Win 8.1 desktop right click takes 15 seconds!

I just noticed it has the time wrong also. I'm still set to Arizona time (no DST) but it incorrectly shows time an hour later than actual and when I change to a different timezone it stays an hour off from what that time zone actually is.

I hope I didn't make a mistake by not waiting a week to upgrade.

What could be causing this. It used to come up immediately when I clicked on the icon on my desktop. Could it be the anti-virus software checking it out before it allows it to open?

Answer:Recycle Bin takes 15 seconds to open up

Usually happens if you've added any hard drives (esp external ones) and they've gone to sleep. The delay is caused by the wake-up time since there's a separate database of deleted files on every drive. message edited by phil22

Answer:It takes 6 and 30 seconds to load a .doc document?

First off, please clarify...

You state that you are opening a .doc file... I am assuming that you mean a MS Word file (.doc or .docx), is that the case?

You are using Open Office to do this?

How are you opening these files? Are you finding file and double clicking on file to open both app and doc, or are you opening app (Open Office) and then opening doc through it?

I assume that all your mobo drivers, etc are correctly setup...???

I can check Win7 64 bit to see what the problem is? I have Opera 12 installed on 2 other computers (one with Win7 64 bit and the other w/XP) and the browser opens within seconds. The delay is only happening on the wife's computer. I changed no settings on Opera when I installed the upgrade to 12 so I am guessing it is the PC that is causing the painful delay.
I un-installed it twice, installed it once to her SSD and then again on her HDD and there was no change in the startup delay-it is driving me crazy.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Jeff

Answer:Opera 12 takes 15-17 seconds to start up-is there anyway

If you upgraded from a previous version, maybe it's due to a setting or something carried over from the older version. Why not try a fresh install from scratch? You can do a "portable" install into a new folder somewhere and try if that copy starts fast.

The other problem I had that started about the same time was never resolved. I hadn't accessed my business software which is the worst - so I told him he could close the ticket. When I bring up my business software, it loads from top to bottom, very slowly. It actually looks like it loads another screen first. Others that use this software are not experiencing the problem.

Can you post your computer specs,along with your operating system,your external gpu name Is this an external gpu or an internal PCI-E video card?

Can you also post the wattage of your power supply.

At a guess I would say your power supply isn't powerful enough to run the card. "2 seconds off" Is this a new card and what was the reason for the change? On the black screen error this sounds like a basic driver error.

In either case remove 'external' video card from your computer, download the latest drivers for your os and internal video card from the manufacturers website go to; control panel,programs and delete ALL video card related drivers then run this program.

http://majorgeeks.com/Driver_Sweeper_d6171.html

Delete ALL drivers.

Turn on your onboard video card in bios

Now install the downloaded driver for your on board video card,does your onboard work now?

Removing the background image keeps this from happening but the machine has plenty of memory so I am wondering: Is it simply the background image or is this a sign that something else could be wrong? Thanks!

Hello all,

Can someone help me figure out a problem my Windows 7 has while loading user credentials thumbnail? Lately it has been taking good 20 to 30 seconds right after the Please Wait screen to load all user credentials thumbnails! And even if after clicking a thumbnail, it takes about 5+ seconds to display password box. I have tried googling this issue but so far no luck.

Any suggestion or advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Khurram

Answer:Windows 7 takes 20 to 30 seconds after Please Wait screen

this problem may be cos you have a lot of startup programs turned on, also unnesecary services etc...

press start and type msconig and press enter.
select startup tab and click disable all button or manulay uncheck items.
now select services tab and check hide all microsoft services checkbox then click disable all button.
select boot tab and type number 3 into Timeout box and press OK

press start and type disk cleanup and enter.
when disk cleanup tool analyzes your drive check all the checkboxes and
clean up you C: partion (where windows is installed) using this tool.

goto C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Temp (change Admin with your username)
empty whole temp folder by selecting all files and folder and delete them.

finaly empty your recycle bin and restart computer.
see what changes you've achived and post the results.

also you may full scan your comp with Antivirs and defrag HD using defragmenter(start>defrag>enter)

after all these steps your may update windows and restart again.

cheers.

I've been running this system just fine until recently when this problem with the right-click menu started. Actually, it is a problem specific to the "New" portion of the right-click menu in Windows Explorer. I can right-click a blank portion of an Explorer window and I get the usual instant pop-out menu; but, if I click "New", it takes a full ten seconds to respond. For ten seconds, it is as though I didn't click at all, then the "New" nested menu appears and everything works as normal. If I impatiently click several times in a row during that ten seconds (on "New"), everything grays for the rest of the ten seconds, then the Windows Desktop redraws completely and I have to start over again trying to use the "New" menu.

This has been going on for about two weeks.

Suggestions?

Hi,
I am having issues with people having the "Running security scan" running for around 20-30 seconds on downloads via Internet Explorer 11. While I totally understand the need for it, I am presuming that it can't be switched off ? (despite people
saying to untick "Enable SmartScreen Filter").
The trouble is that this is now becoming an issue for people downloading documents internally from SharePoint servers and SQL Reporting servers - how can I adjust the behaviour of this scan ?

Or are there any updates that have known to cause issues with this (I've checked out the KB3076895 one) ? How does the malware/phishing component of SmartScreen Filter get it's updates or is it an external call to a web site hosted elsewhere ?
Our environment is Windows 7 (tested on Windows 10 and the same thing happens), Office 2010 / Office 2013 (happens in both) and IE11. Any pointers to resolve this issue gratefully received !
Many thanks.
Brian.

Not sure why it happened but a month or so ago, my computer became infected by a virus pretending to be an antivirus / spyware / malware program (i don't remember the virus name, sorry). So I got Malwarebytes and was able to remove it (how thoroughly I'm not sure). After that happened though, saving images from the internet as .jpgs now take 35 seconds before the window to save actually appears. can anyone help out please?

I updated malwarebytes just today and ran a full scan just now on safe mode but it didn't find anything wrong.
I also did a cleanup of my harddrives to delete approx 4gbs of unwanted data and did a defrag afterwards.

the lag to save pictures still happens though.

Answer:"save picture as" takes 35 seconds before actually saving

Oke, Before I can say amything about it , I have to get more data.Could you do these steps : Download AdwCleaner(by Xplode) on your desktop.Launch it, click on [Delete] and wait for the scan.When the scan ends, notepad with the report will appears.The program will close all active programs.

I have been fighting a problem with a new Windows 8 deployment for over 3 weeks now.

I need to deploy over 700 Windows 8 Pro systems by August 1 for a school corporation and I have been stalled on this one issue.

I am using Windows MDT2012 Update 1 for deployment. The computers I am deploying images to are Lenovo Thinkpad E530C and E531 laptops. I have deployed new images to about 40 laptops in a lab that all have experienced the problem.

The problem presents itself during a domain user logon to a Windows 8 Pro system. After the user types in their domain user name and password, the login process looks normal for the first 30 seconds. Then, instead of displaying the Start screen, the screen goes black for 10 minutes. After the 10 minute delay, the Start screen displays and everything runs normally.

The problem is random. It is not specific to any user account or laptop. Sometimes a user can log into a laptop with no problem and then the same user can log into the same laptop and get the 10 minute delay.

I opened a case with Microsoft Product Support on 7/15 but so far, that has gotten me no where. They gathered a ton of logs but did not give me any analysis. They examined my Group Policies and spent an hour on one of the systems that experienced the 10 minute delay during the login I started so I could get them set up with a remote session. So far, no solution.

I did some research of my own and came across the Windows Performance Toolkit in the Windows 8 SDK.
I ended... Read more

Answer:AUInstallAgent takes 600 seconds during domain logon

I do not have any experience with your situation, but it appears the information you are getting about the boot process is very basic. Did Microsoft suggest you run a utility called Process Monitor, which can be set to monitor the boot and create a log?

If not, I would go to the SysInternals site and download and run it. There are tutorials on how to set it up, but you can set it to monitor the boot sequence. In your situation, it will probably show something being done over and over, or time gaps where nothing is being done.

I am sure a Domain setup is different from normal user setup, but your might try disabling the service you mention (AllUserInstallAgent) for testing. It is disabled in a non-domain type install, or at least it is in 8.1

Sorry I can't help more.

Edit: I forgot to mention, just in case it might be relevant, that update KB2821895 made some fairly serious changes. You might want to check out the info page in the link. At the bottom it does state you will want to run DISM.exe prior to deployments.

Note everything is working fine after bootup. But I'm really paranoid because it seems like the it takes a few seconds before it boots up when it used to load up instantly before probably for 5-7 seconds only.

Here's what's happening.

1. When switching the pc on. For about 30 seconds and more, nothing appears on monitor. It is completely black, nothing appears with the just monitor switch blinking and the 3 lights on the keyboards don't yet flash. But when I'm restarting, the boot process only loads about for about 10 seconds after which is not yet normal as compared to before.
2. Only after that particular seconds, then my pc will load up.

I am running window 10 and recently (this problem may have to do with updates) when my monitor goes to sleep it has a difficult time waking.  It takes anywhere from 30 seconds to over a minute to wake up.  I have shut it down, messed with disconnecting and reconnecting cables but no results.  This has been going on for about 2-3 weeks, so if it is an upgrade from microsoft, how is it possible to do a system recovery and get the right update culprit - if that is really what is going on.

Hi, I have an Ideapad Flex 4-1480-80VD that I bought under a month ago and I started experiencing a weird issue. When I try to watch or listen to anything with audio (YouTube or music/video files on my hard drive), it takes 5 seconds for the audio to kick in. There is no sync issue, the audio is just starting after a delay. (I am not 100% sure, but I think this started after the audio driver disappeared out of nowhere one day while sitting in class. I wasn't having any issues but then noticed that there was a red marker on the speaker volume icon on my taskbar. When I clicked on it, Windows scanned for hardware changes, so I'm guessing it noticed the driver was missing and re-installed it.) Anyway, if I stop the file and take more than 8-10 seconds to open or start another file/YouTube video, I experience the 5 second delay again. If I start the next video in under 8 seconds, I have no issue and everything works fine. It's as if some audio component is going to sleep each time and it takes those 5 seconds to startup. I've tried everything I can think of regarding updating, unistalling and reinstalling drivers or tweeking audio settings. I've also tried disabling the Harman enhancement to no avail. If nothing works I'll guess I'll have to factory reset the PC, which I don't necessarily feel like doing lol. Of course it's not a major issue, but it does get irritating. Any advice is welcome. Thank you

Answer:Audio takes 5 seconds to start after I begin playback

I would not go to such drastic measures as resetting your system, since it is most likely, as you suspect, a driver issue.   Have you tried seeing if an older driver exists on your system that does not have the problem Right clicking on your sound card in Device Manager, and select PropertiesSelect the Driver tabSelect Update DriverSelect Browse my Computer for driver softwareSelect Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my systemIn the resulting window, you should see a list of all the drivers currently stored on your systemYou mentioned that you have uninstalled and reinstalled, but when uninstalling, have you checked the box to Delete the driver software for this device when doing so, for if not, Windows will normally not install the clean copy you downloaded, but rather just reload the already installed copy that could be corrupted. Also there was an issue reported with Conextant Audio Drivers on other Lenovo laptops that was fixed with a driver update, but your system appears to use the Realtek HD Audio card, is that correct?

When I open a .doc file in word 2003 for the first time, the document opens, then is sometimes briefly editable (maybe for 1 or 2 seconds), then word freezes for exactly sixty seconds (regardless of the document size).

Having opened the file in word and re-save it as a .doc file (without making any changes), subsequent reopening the same file happens almost immediately, although the file is now 4kb larger.

I'm pretty sure this started happening shortly after I installed the Microsoft Compatibility pack for Office 2007 to get support for .docx / pptx / .xlsx files.

Any ideas why, is anybody else having this problem? Certainly a couple of my colleagues are having the same issues. Powerpoint and Excel seem to be unaffected.

The follwing are my problems:1. When starting up the machine, it takes about 35 seconds before the first screen activity appears (Lenovo splash screen). After that it boots quite normal.2. When waking out of sleep mode it takes 11 seconds before I see the power led stopping to "breath" and the screen wakes up.It feels like this is a hardware/bios related issue, as (so far I know) hdd/ssd is only accessed after the bios has loaded and has finished its hardware checks. When sticking in a bootable usb it only starts flickering after the bios had loaded on screen.Question:Does anyone has an idea why my laptop is waiting so long to boot or to wake up? I don't mind waiting a bit, but waiting for 35 seconds + the normal boot time is really annoying. Specially with the fact that the laptop doesn't show any sign of live for 35 seconds after briefly lighting up the keyboard backlights. The wake-up delay is also very annoying since even my 7 year old BSOD laptop wakes-up faster, and I'm using sleep mode a lot.Some origins that I'm thinking about:- Hardware check during initial hardware startup does not yet recognize a dedicated GPU card. (POST: Power On Self Test)- I don't think this is a problem with my software since the problems occurs before reading any media.Things I tryed already:- Reset bios.- Start in legacy mode.- Bios update- rebuilding MBR (although I don't expect this to be the problem.)- Refreshing windows installation although I don't expect this to be the problem.)This pr...

Hi All,

I am having the problem that all websites take 15 seconds to be looked up by my browser. I am using Firefox (but I have the same problem in Explorer) and any time I type in a website or click a bookmark, I get "Looking up websitename..." for 15 seconds, regardless of what website I use, and after that time the website loads as normal. Also, if I ping a site in the command prompt, it takes 15 seconds before anything is displayed, and then the response is shown of maybe 160ms, not 15 seconds.

I thought it might be the DNS lookup that is taking this time, so I got the ip address of a website, put it in, and the site loaded immediately. If I then again put in the website url, it takes the same 15 seconds to load. So this does seem to be the problem.

The only significant things I have changed since everything was working properly (as far as I can remember), is that I have installed a Belkin wireless PCMCIA network card in my laptop, and I am using a network in a different house with a Netopia Wireless Router connected to ADSL, whereas before the router was a 3Com, and I was connecting using an ethernet cable.

I thought it was connecting through the wireless card that was the problem, but when I removed it and connected directly to the current router using an ethernet cable, the same 15 second wait happened for any website.

I have no idea how to fix this, I hope someone here knows what I should do. It is annoying enough to wait 15 seconds more for each websit... Read more

brand new computer, i installed my normal program (office 2013, vs.net 2013, sql developer 2014, stardock start 8 and some other basic stuff etc)

i have this computer and google chrome pinned to the task bar.

if i left click either of them, they take 10+ seconds to open. I can run either from a short cut on the desktop or anywhere else and they both open instantly.

i can fix this behavior by right clicking the task bar and clicking lock the task bar. now both chrome and this computer open instantly for about 1 min. eventually they both go back to 10 seconds.
i can then right click and do unlock the task bar and it fixes it for a min etc.

i think it might have something to do with office. i'm going to try to uninstall that and reinstall and see if it helps.

Unfortuantely, recently it has begun taking much longer, 20-40 seconds, as well as randomly locking up and crashing.Symptoms:- It's happening in any Windows Explorer window. If I press Ctrl-E it happens, as well as using a folder shortcut to open My Documents, although if I open My Documents the wait is only about 5-10 seconds. - When pressing Ctrl-E, there is a delay of about 3-4 seconds before Windows Explorer opens at all. It then opens with an hour glass, shows me my drives/folders, but without icons next to them. The hour glass stays for about 20-40 seconds until finally I can click on something. When navigating through Windows Explorer, opening a new drive or a folder that contains a lot of files oftentimes causes it to lock up for about 20 seconds as the hard drive spins loudly. - When returning to my desktop, typically about 2/3 of the desktop items have the default "Can't find the icon" icon that windows uses. Slowly, over the course of about 10 seconds the correct icons load, and I hear the hard drive spinning loudly. - Lately I've also been occasionally getting blue screens/reboots. What I've done:- Updated and done full system scan with AVG free. Found nothing.- Updated and done full system scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Found nothing.- Perform... Read more

Answer:Windows Explorer takes about 20-40 seconds to load, locks up randomly

FWIW: A damaged system file...may not show any observable impact to the user from damage...but it may be reflected in system operation. The fact that any driver for a device...appears to be working properly...can be superficial and erroneous.It's also good to remember that in a system...something wrong with one file may manifest itself in a malfunction of something else. Examples are all the various types of memory errors...which are really caused by something other than memory but manifest themselves in the functioning of system memory.If you have a .dmp error file which fingers a given driver as having problems...IMO, it's having problems.At the least, I would uninstall it and then reinstall it.It might be a good idea (certainly won't hurt) to run the sfc /scannow command. This is designed to detect and replace any damaged or missing system files.How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System Files - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/ Louis

Truly had a hard time trying to describe a proper title.
Here's what I mean. Since I got this computer 3 years ago and along it Windows 7 I had this problem and questioned if it was a normal Win7 thing or not.
I turn on the PC and, for ex., I go online. This means I am presently working on my C: drive since that is where my OS sits and along it my Browser. But at one point, say 15 minutes later I want to open a file/folder which happens to be on a different drive, D:, E: whatever. Well at this point I hear coming from my computer, sitting below me, the drive begin to spin-and I need to wait from 5 to 10 seconds before I see anything on the screen--Windows Explorer. Is this normal or what? If not, what is going on exactly.
At this point, afterwards the folder siting on the drive takes no time to open, or a new folder or whatever but if I wait a while, say 30 minutes and then decide to open another folder sitting on another drive the same thing happens

Answer:Folder on unused drive takes 5 to 10 seconds to open, is this normal?

Hello pintree,

Yes, this is normal when you have Windows set to Turn off hard disk after X amount of idle minutes instead of "Never". If you like, the tutorial below can helps how you how to set this to "Never" to no longer have your hard drives turn off.

Hard Drive - Turn Off Hard Disk After Idle or Never

Hope this helps,

I have a Thinkpad T410 (BiOS seems to have been made in 2011) and for about half a month, I haven't switched it off very often.So this morning, I put it on sleep  and brought it to class, but when I lifted the cover, the usual 1~2 second wake-up screen did not pop up, in fact, it took roughly 30 SECONDS before anything showed up on the screen.I got back and tried shutting the thing down, and restarting, but the thing took roughly 30 seconds to show me the BOOT screen (with the Thinkpad icon). When I pressed the Power button, it lit up properly, and the battery icon was on too, but it just sits there for 30-ish seconds, before even showing me life on the screen. After the 30 second wait for the Boot screen (whether from sleep or starting up), everything works fine, I'm brought to my start screen at normal speed.I've given that sketchy (cuz it hasn't worked for me) "static discharge" Power Button trick two tries after disconnecting the battery,wires and ac adapters, but doesn't change the 30 second wait before the screen shows anything.Can anyone tell me what the heck is going on? At the start of last month, my computer did NOT have this problem, I've only had this problem happen to me today. Is it the age? Or....

Can anyone tell me why is it so slow to copy files on to my NB100?

A 4 gig files takes 68 minutes!

Answer:NB100, copying a 45MB size file from USB takes 35 seconds?!?!

From USB?

What is the USB Device? A USB Flash Drive?

Is the USB device slow on other PC's as well?

Did you install Windows yourself? Maybe you need to install the Intel Chipset driver to support USB2.0, or install the latest Windows Service Pack.

Hi all. Ok I have a Q6600 w/8gb or RAM. It has worked well for a couple of years. Recently got lots of messages from Kaspersky about trojan horses and such. Kaspersky has said it cleaned up everything.

BUT, system is so slow now.

Applications that took 1-2 seconds to open and close now require nearly a minute [such as Firefox].

Not sure what to do.

Please help me if you can.

Thanks,

Soar

Answer:System slowed way down, start up and shut down takes minutes instead of seconds...

You should use multiple antivirus/spyware software rather than just one that is if it is a virus slowing you down. Also make sure to uninstall the extra antivirus software after you are done with the scans, as having more than one can cause conflicting problems.

Hi everyone!
 
I tried to ignore this problem, but it has become increasingly frustrating when I have to work with files in Windows Explorer.
 
The problem is, when I right-click on a file and choose Properties, it takes 5-8 seconds to open the File Properties Window. Strangely, when I do the same with folders (Folder Properties) the window opens almost instantaneously as it should. I have tried to fiddle around with ShellExView but to no avail - after all, I assume that program is just for controlling context menu entries. I searched and googled but I couldn't find any similar problems, the closest I got was that software.
 
Do you know what's the problem? Thanks in advance! 

Answer:Windows Explorer takes 5-8 seconds to open a File Properties window!

You can keep disabling more non-microsoft extensions in shellexview and see if any of them are causing it (do a system backup first)

Hi there,

This happened recently starting a few days ago, and I have no clue what could have caused this.

When I move or delete a file, it will show a dialog like this:
Attachment 89083

It turns 100% after a couple seconds and the move/delete is done. This happens even for very small files. This has never happened before, and I don't know what could have cause this. It even happens in Safe Mode.

EDIT 1: I found that if I create a new user on the system, the issues don't happen there! The issue remains on my main account...

EDIT 2: Renaming/moving/deleting causes a huge memory spike (from explorer.exe or runtimebroker.exe or settingsynchost.exe). Is this normal? See attached.

Also, the lag does NOT happen when I rename/move/delete a file within a dialog. For example, when I was uploading the above screenshot, I deleted and renamed a file through the pop-up, and there was no issue (reproducible).

Things I've tried to remedy this:
- Update Windows
- Disable services
- Disable indexing
- Uninstall recently updated or installed software (Core Temp)
- Go into Safe Mode
- Run sfc/ scannow
- Run antivirus
- Use Nirsoft ShellMenuNew to disable context options (as suggested by others elsewhere)

I'd rather not do a reinstall because I have large programs I want to keep installed like games, and I'm hoping there's a way to just get rid of the dialog box every time because it is really annoying.

Any other ideas I can try? Thank you!

Answer:Moving or deleting takes long -- dialog shows 99% for a couple seconds

Bump, same issue persisting. Renaming files takes a couple seconds as well...

I've noticed that when my computer first boots up, Windows Defender opens almost immediately when I double-click the system tray icon, but after opening it the first time, subsequent attempts take ~10 seconds after double-clicking the icon.
Any ideas? I've already checked and it's not in the middle of a scan or anything. Also, I've opened Defender from the settings menu (there's a button that says "Open Windows Defender") and it opens instantaneously via this button even when it's opening slowly from the system tray.

Is this normal behavior or is something strange going on here? This is basically a completely fresh install of Win 10 and I'm pretty sure I don't have any viruses or malware going on...

I'm running Win 7 on a T400 with an Intel 5300 card.  When I boot-up, the Lenovo Access Connections immediately connects to the WiFi network. However, the Microsoft wireless indicator in the notification panel indicates that I am not connected to the WiFi network. It takes almost 60 seconds for the Microsoft Win 7 indicator to show that I am connected. (I've confirmed the behavior by opening the Network Connection and Sharing Center.)  Why does the WiFi immediately connect in the Lenovo Access Connections but take much longer in the Win 7 Network Connection and Sharing Center? Shouldn't they work simultaneously?  Thanks!!





T400, X220

Answer:T400 WiFi: Lenovo immediately connects, but Microsoft takes 60 seconds longer

Good question.  I had to try it myself just now.  T400. 5300. Win 7 Pro 64.
 
I don't see that behavior.  The Windows wifi indicator takes a little longer while the tool tray is being populated, and does spin briefly, but not for 60 seconds.  I don't know what's happening during the time it takes me to log in.
 
Do you see the same thing with a different router?  Or are you using an access point with a router behind it?
 
It may be that the Lenovo wifi thingy lights up when the wifi radios are associated, but the Windows indicator doesn't show a connection until the DHCP address is assigned (and whatever else goes on) or fails.
 
[edit] it could even be an artifact of whatever network security you are running.
 
Just total speculation on my part,
Z.

1. When double clicking on the 'my computer' icon, the window pops up, but then the window goes blank and the flashlight starts going back and forth. After around 45 seconds or so, everything comes up and works fine. If I double click on c: drive it comes right up. I don't have any more problems with going through different files or folders unless I close the window. If I double click on 'my computer' again, it does the same thing. It also creates a DCOM 10010 error in the event viewer.

2. If I go to the start menu and click on search, the start menu disappears, but nothing else happens. I don't know if it is related, but if I am saving a file, it doesn't auto fill/complete the file name if it already exists in the folder. It used to do this and would be helpful to have back.

3. I have 2 printers attached to my computer. One is a color laser and works fine. The other is an all-in-one printer/scanner/fax, but I only use it for scanning.

I believe it creates a DCOM 10010 error in the event viewer. Again, it used to scan just fine. We currently have it plugged into a different computer and it works on that computer just fine.

Something strange is going on here: I have been running Win 7x64 just fine in a network with many network printers and even a plotter. I recently installed a Lexmark c935 (huge A3 color laser) using the Windows Update-driver. When I try to restart after this, the Domain login takes exactly 3600s from entering the password and to the desktop appears. Needless to say, this is a big waste of time. Luckily, I made a restore point just prior to installing the driver, so I have rolled back without issues, but of course I cannot use the Lexmark. I'm running Win7 as a pilot user on the network, and my local tech guy did not find a solution other than using the restore point. Is this driver-dependant logon-issue familiar to anyone on this forum?

A couple months ago, I downloaded a software recently called "CardRunnersEV calculator" (purchased at Cardrunners-ev-calculator.com) which is a complex calculator used for poker analysis. I thought the author of the software was trustworthy, but I recently had problems with the software slowing down and not working problem (the rest of the system was fine though). So, I contacted the author and he said to make an exception for some of the .exe files in the programs directory. That didnt work so he suggested that there must be a conflict with my antivirus software. So I uninstalled Trend Micro Titanium and installed Avira. A couple days after installing Avira (yesterday), Avira alerted me that malware was found in 2 of the .exe files from this software. I then quarantined the files. About an hour later, Avira alerted me that they found 2 instances of adware in a Xvidsetup file, so I also quarantined those. I also went through my files and deleted every instance of the CardrunnersEV program.

I'm not computer savvy and so I wanted to make sure that I in fact removed this trojan properly. It also might be important to note that I contacted the author of CardrunnersEV and he claims that quote "there was a temporary problem that caused version 2.6.2 to generate a false positive, which I've resolved within 24 hours by releasing version 2.6.3." Now since I dont know much about all this stuff, I have no way of knowing if he is just giving me a bogus excus... Read more

I've been working on this laptop, an old Dell Inspiron, that was brought to me because it won't turn on the first few times you press the power button. It will eventually come on (usually only when I press and hold the power button and let it cycle till it comes on) and once it's warmed up I can turn it off and when I power on again it comes right on. I have done a few things to narrow the possible issues. To eliminate a software issuse, I repair installed XP, ran MalwareBytes, AVG, ccleaner and cleanup; it still has the same issue. This seems to confirm my initial thought that it might be the mobo or the internal power supply. Any one else expierience this problem and if so were you able to confirm what was causing it? Any help is appreciated!

Answer:Laptop takes a few tries to turn on

If this happens at boot it is highly unlikely that it is an OS or virus issue. Windows doesn't even get the chance to boot. I would try updating the BIOS. If that doesn't fix the issue ensure that the button is properly working. At that point it would be a MB issue which will probably cost more than the laptop is worth.

Hallo everybody.

I'm trying to repair this Satellite A60-712; it came to me without power supplier, but I've found a compatible one and it seems to work: CC IN LED lights up and battery starts to charge.

My problem is that this notebook starts for a while, heatsink begins to rotate, all LEDs light up normally but, suddenly everything turns off after 2-3 seconds. I've observed that this machine has only a free RAM slot and have been noticed that it has an integrated on motherboard memory module; could be this the problem? Or is possible some other reason?

Could someone help me?
Thanks.

Hi

> it came to me without power supplier, but I've found a compatible one
Can you please test it with an original Toshiba AC/DC adaptor? Does happen the same?

If the notebook has already integrated memory on mainboard there is no problem there. You can also use the notebook without additional RAM module.

In worst case you need professional help from an authorized service provider. :(

SL510 was running and went to sleep. Upon wake, desktop appeared as it was left before sleeping, then machine turned off (hard off).  When power button is depressed, power light/fans/optical light turn on as normal but then shuts off within 3 seconds.  Twice when attempting to turn on machine, it displayed splash screen and began to load windows then shut off suddenly and went back to ~3 second on before off again.  Took battery/AC power out and held down power button to drain, no change.  Also no change with just AC power/no battery.   Have not pulled CMOS battery to reset BIOS, will try that next.  Any suggestions or keys to depress during power-on for troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated...













Solved!

Answer:SL510 will not turn on.. on for 3 seconds then off.

I figured it out.  After trying everything (complete power drain, RAM out, one DIMM in either slot, HD out, with or without battery, etc.), I unplugged the fan and turned it on and it worked, displaying a "FAN ERROR" message.  I plugged the fan back in and it's working solid.  Power cycled it many times, sleep mode many times, fan is working as it should too.  Hope this can help someone else  :0)

Answer:Computer takes forever to turn on

Hello sheehka,

If you still require assistance, you currently have 2 Anti Virus programs installed which is never a good idea and could be part of your problem. More than 1 Anti Virus can cause conflicts and confusion between the AV programs as well as system instability. Please choose and run only 1 and uninstall the other via the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

Run a new scan with dds.scr and post the dds.txt and new attach.txt

Hi,
 
My old topic was 'Am I Infected???' where I posted all the results asked for. The white flag notification shows sometimes that my AV (Avira) is turned off. Am not sure why this is happening. And even when I click on Turn on, it takes time for the cross to go from the white flag. However, my AV application is loaded. Is this an error?
 
Secondly, I can't seem to save Word docs or other docs in C drive. It says its either write protected, or corrupted or full. I then have to save it in My Documents and then copy and paste into C drive. 
 
Thirdly, I have Glasswire and WhoisonmyWifi apps and I have followed all the steps of staying safe on the net like the mac filtering etc. My computer is working pretty fast and even the internet.
 
Please do check if my computer is clean and whether my AV is the best one. I'm using the free software of Avira and so far other than the notification saying that it is turned off, I haven't faced any issues. Sometimes, it says that windows defender is turned off. Please review the logs posted in my previous thread too.

Hi, I recently bought a new laptop from samsung model number RC512.
My laptop worked just fine until like 2-3 weeks after use.
It takes about 3-4 minutes to turn off.
it used to turn off in like 15 sec. but now its taking forever.
My guess is that a little game that I played caused this problem.
here are my specs.

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.110622-1506)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD.
System Model: RC512
BIOS: AMIBIOS Version 00FN.M034.20110511.SSH
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.1GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 6056MB RAM

is there any way to fix my laptop? thank you. :]

Hello!

I have an Acer Power F5 desktop running Windows XP SP3. The other day I hit the power switch after it had been in hibernation and nothing happened. After making sure it had mains power and the cord was in I decided my power supply must have blown overnight and went to my notebook. After about 20 minutes, the Acer turned itself on. I had not touched it in the meantime.

I left it on all day then powered it down. After leaving it off overnight, I touched the power switch once and nothing happened. The network connected LED was on, a solid blue. Then 22 minutes later, it started up.

I have done a search but can't seem to find any posts on this issue. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers
Spike

Answer:windows takes ages to turn off

There may be something still running in the back ground. Do Ctrl+Alt+Delete and check what is running, you may have to "end task" on a program or two.

Howdy,

Recently, I've noticed that if my computer is off, once I hit the power button on the front of the computer it acts totally dead for a minute or more and then powers up. Nothing will happen at all for a while- no sounds, lights or fans starting up, then a while later the computer powers on and goes through startup like it always had.

Can someone tell me why the computer's doing this?

I've defragged my drives (like always) very recently, if that matters.

Any tips are much appreciated,

Bobby

When I plug in my computer and flip the power switch on the back my pc try's to turn on the fan's run and it sounds like it's trying to power up and then shut's off 3-5 seconds later. And when I try to turn it on from the power button in the front it doesn't do anything. I've sent it back to the place I ordered it from(CyberPowerPc) 3 times and they send me it back with the same problem happening they have replaced the motherboard and 2 stick's of ram and it say's on the invoice they tested it before they shipped it to me so is something happening in shipping or am I being screwed.

Answer:My Computer shuts off a few seconds after i turn it on

Hi Millurn welcome to the site.

seem odd that they Would BOTH not work. Might be the CPU might be at fault here. I am surprised that it does not work as everything is compatible.

It also sounds like it might be the PSU. Can you get hold of another 400W plus PSU and see if that works. If so then you know what the Issue is.


hope this helps

For these last couple of months i've had issues with BSODs. I blamed it on the RAMs and returned them to the store. While i was waiting for them to return, i borrowed my brother's RAMs, and it turned out i still got the BSODs. Anyway, i fixed the problem a few days ago when i updated most of my drivers.

Today i got my RAMs back. I switched them out with my brother's RAMs and booted the computer. it looked fine the first 2-5 seconds but then it turns off and boots again by itself a few seconds later.

I've had a similar issue before, and it turned out it was my heatsink which wasnt proberbly mounted. I checked it, and it might have been loose but i managed to fix it and now it should be mounted correctly. Still, the computer reboots after a couple of seconds.

Ive checked all the cables to see it any of them were loose
Ive tried to plug the videocard into another plug
Ive taken the CPU out and back in
Ive tried to switch out the RAMs one by one

Do you have any suggestions ???
Thanks in advance.

My relatively new Yoga 3 Pro (4 months old) inbuild screen goes blacl/turns off after 30 seconds unless I am activity typing or moving the mouse around.  The screen still seems to be on and I can see the back-light but the screen is completely black.  I have to hit a key or click the trackpad for it to come back on.  This happens no mattter what program/app I am using or even if I am just displaying the desktop.  It will even happen when viewing youtube videos or reading a pdf.   While I have not tried it, I am pretty sure it it will do this when doing a presentation unless I move through the slides within 30 seconds.  I have adjuster the timer for the screen to turn off in Power & System settings (tried everything from 2 min to never for both battery and plugged-in) and have disabled Harmony Paper Display (using the Fn+Esc)  with no effect.   The screen just goes black after 30 seconds no matter what I do.  Does anyone know how to stop this from happening.This is really annoying and pretty much makes the computer useless for work.    

Answer:Yoga 3 Pro screen turn off after 30 seconds

Did you ever find a solution to this?  I have the same thing happening and nothing I do in the power settings make any difference.  It happens to laptop display or if I am plugged into an external monitor.

So, normally when you see this subject you think "It's probably a virus" or "Just clean the registry" but it's not that type of problem. It's not that I turn it on and it's just so slow to turn on. It's not that at all. When I turn off my laptop, it seems to turn off just fine, except after windows seems to close. The screen turns off, but the computer stays on. I've waited for nearly an hour for it to turn off and it doesn't. I hit the power button once, and it turns right off without having me to hold down the button like if it froze. Then when I go to turn it on again, nothing happens. I thought it would be because my battery was crap. I couldn't have my computer unplugged for longer then 5 minutes before it shuts down. So, I took out the battery and had it plugged directly into the wall, then tried to turn it on. I know it should turn on, because I've had to do it before, but it still didn't turn on at all. I have to hit the power button, and then wait over an hour for it to turn on. Then there is another strange occurrence. I am currently dual booting windows XP and windows 7. When I have it on XP, it turns on and off with no problem at all, but I have the problem when I boot it up from 7. That was the main reason I installed XP, but direct 3D refuses to work so I installed 7 as well so I could play my games. I'm pretty confident it's a hardware issue, but I don't know why it only happen... Read more
