WIN7. Fine before reboot. Now extremely slow.

Question: WIN7. Fine before reboot. Now extremely slow.

Computer ran fine in the am. Shut down and restarted in the pm. Boot to windows was no slower than normal. When you click on any executable, program takes forever to load. For example, after clicking Outlook 2007, about 10 minutes later I can actually see my emails. Move the mouse to click and open an email, cursor disappears then reappears about 50 seconds later. Maybe 5-7 minutes later, the email message will open. The same scenario occurs for Task Manager, Windows Explorer, Firefox, etc.

Machine: HP Pavilion dv5000 (laptop), AMD Turion 1.79GHz, RAM 2GB.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (All current updates installed)

In Safe Mode, machine seems to be operating at normal speed. Reboot to normal Windows, it's still ridiculously slow.

From Safe Mode, ran Webroot, Spybot, and Malwarebytes. Only thing found was some cookies.

Earlier today, managed to run a few things from normal Windows.
Using BitDefender 2010; defrag accomplished, registry cleaner, cleaned cookies/temp files and virus scan (none found).

CHKDSK and rebooted. No disk problems found. Currently running WD Disk Utility.

Last program installed (5 days ago): Updated iTunes program

Ran msconfig and turned off any unneeded start-up programs.

Installed the CPU Speed gadget and noticed the CPU going to 100% on several occasions.

No improvements made so far.

Because it worked fine before I rebooted and now its crazy slow, it's got me scratching my head. I thought virus or malware but none has been detected. Besides getting a newer computer, suggestions from anyone on what to try next? Thank you!

Preferred Solution: WIN7. Fine before reboot. Now extremely slow.

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.)

Answer: WIN7. Fine before reboot. Now extremely slow.

First, try this to see if Task Manager can identify the hog:

Quote:




Task Manager:
Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze.
Look at all of the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process.
FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.




If that doesn't work, we can try XPerf (more info here: http://www.carrona.org/xperf.html ).

Hi,

About two months ago my HP Pavilion 6654y Win7, 8GB, etc.,
started running extremely slowly in Normal Mode. It takes several minutes to respond to mouse clicks, etc.
Basically, it just hangs. But it runs "ok" for a minute or two while still rebooting.

In Safe mode it runs just fine.
I've tried everything I can think of to narrow down the problem, to no avail,
including numerous scans such as AVG, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro Housecall.
Installed UnHackMe to check for rootkits. Even got Reimage and ran it several times.

I've used CCleaner to clean things up, and also to clear out Startup programs
and disable most scheduled tasks, as follows,
(though it is confusing to me since I still see some of the process when started up in Normal Mode):

Answer:Win7 fine in Safe Mode, extremely slow responses in Normal Mode.

Please run Minitoolbox and include the List Installed Programs. Check HP desktop if it comes with a diagnostic test within windows or BIOS utility for memory sticks and hard drive and try running the complete test. Please post back if there are no such features as they would be provided. Try also doing some house cleaning for some dust and bunnies to make sure thermal events is not contributing to the problem.

Win7 installs fine, then reboots to complete installation but then stops the loading of windows saying there was an unexpected reboot or error and windows installation cannot proceed and to reinstall windows again. This was a clean install of windows and not an upgrade.

I checked the setup error log in Panther and it said there was a [0x060675] error, which i don't know what could cause this.

Setup is

Amd X3 425

Asus M4A77D

WD 320 Gb blue

2 Gb ozc mem

I also have the a setupact log if that will help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Guys, can someone help me out on trying to resolve an issue I'm having on my network.

I have 3 Main PCs.

One in the Gameroom--Media Server (Windows 7 64bit, onboard Gigabit Nic). MSI AMD 780G Chipset.

One in the Office--(Windows XP MCE, INTEL Gigabit PCI)

One in the Living Room--HTPC (Windows 7 32bit, onboard Gigabit Nic) GIGABYTE AMD 780G Chipset.

I just upgraded all my systems to new hard drives in hopes of archiving all DVDs onto the server and streaming them from there to the other machines.

All connections are working fine and I can move around files between machines no problem.

My issues I can get 70-80 MB/s between the HTPC and the Server.

The most I can get out of my Office and the Server is 37-40MB/s.

The 2 OS drives in the Office and HTPC machines are Identical..Samsung F3 drives. The drives on the server I'm sending files to are Samsung F4 drives.

I just did fresh OS intalls on these drives when I placed them into service.

I used all windows drivers except for the Intel NIC in which I used the supplied drivers for it.

Can anyone tell me why my XP machine can't pull the same mustard as the other machine? It really has me puzzled.

Thanks,
Mike

Yesterday I downgraded from Windows Vista Home Basic, and installed Windows XP Professional and Ubuntu.

This is something I have done before, and it went alright. I discovered that it is absolutely impossible to find working XP drivers for my built-in network card (which EVEREST Home identified as an nForce 520). That wasn't a problem last time, as my DSL modem supports USB, as well. So, I just installed the USB drivers for my modem. That was fine last time.

This time, however, I accidentally installed a different version of the USB driver. The disc had four different options to choose from, and I must've picked the wrong one.

So, here's what I'm left with: On my main user account, I can barely access the internet. The page titles will load, but no much else. It just crawls. However, on my mother's account, everything is just dandy. It works just fine in Ubuntu, as well.

What gives? This is a completely clean install of XP Pro. The only things I have installed are graphics drivers, (non-working) ethernet drivers, modem USB drivers, ?Torrent, MediaMonkey, Firefox, Ad-Aware, and EVEREST Home.

Answer:Internet on one XP account is extremely slow, but fine on other.

Bump.

Hi, recently the wifi on my laptop has been extremely slow and disconnects quite often (still shows as connected but says no internet) however the same wifi on my phone experiences no such issues. I was considering reinstalling windows to see if that fixes it but I'd rather avoid having to do that.
My wifi package is 100mb/s but on my laptop it ranges from a few mb to 20 or so if I'm lucky, is there any way to fix this without reinstalling windows & would that even solve the issue?
Thanks

Guys, is there any way I can help speed up my browsing on the internet? I know some sites are slower than others but, as of late, the internet seems to slow down to a crawl yet, when I do the speed test, I end up scoring higher or just where I am supposed to be at.

I only use Avast as my A.V. & Spyware + Windows Firewall, no proxies. I am also using OpenDNS for my dns address and this has help a bit but still, I will like more from it since when I download a file, it does it fairly quick.

Any ideas?

Answer:Extremely slow Internet browsing... Download speeds are fine

If we assume you are not hit by evil infection, then it might be relevant that an older post of yours show you have router with firmware not updated since long. Wireless Routers - Linksys Community Forums try search for it here. Lots of problems like this v4.21.1 of Linksys WRT54G Firmware is Bad - Wireless Routers - Linksys Community Forums though you can say the same for many routers.

So why dont you update to Tomato firmware? If it qualifies, Tomato FAQ | polarcloud.com

That way you can let router handle dynamic IP update (Basic, DDNS) and also get a little boost by increasing build in cache. Advanced, DHCP/DNS can be set up like in the pic. In older post I lost url to did you say Opendns ips changed? They should not. Only 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 are allowed I think, see pic for how it looks in Tomato.

Read up on Tomato site, there should not be a risk by "flashing" - can go back. Also dont wonder where firewall went - it is not possible to turn it off

If browsers are hosed by infection good luck Opendns can have problems in certain areas but should be temporarily. Infection is more likely than opendns messing up if set up correctly.

Hi I've just recently started experiencing freezing during start-up. It started during a game of League of Legends, and has been progressively getting worse. It's to the point where it'll take minutes to log on and when it does eventually get to my desktop the task bar will have a loading symbol when I scroll on it. I've tried disabling all start-up programs, and services in MSConfig. Updated all drives, uninstalled newly installed programs, restored to a week prior to the freezing and still nothing. Any suggestions?

Answer:Computer works fine in safe mode, extremely slow and freezes otherwise

Hi there, have you tried removing other peripherals like extra HDD's or DVD/CD drive? might be an idea to just start your machine with only 1 drive, your memory and Video card. If it still does that, try starting the machine with less memory, if you have more than one module of ram.

My computer (Cadmium in the specs link in my signature) appears to be having a VERY slow shutdown. A full reboot from desktop to desktop again takes 7 minutes, 4 for the shutdown, and 3 for the boot. This only seems to happen when the computer has been running a while, so it may be caused by a process with delayed startup or something. I am having a lot of trouble dealing with this, as it is a huge waste of my time.

Does anyone have a suggestion to diagnose and repair this? I'm running Vista.

I recently came back from vacation which I brought my desktop computer on. It is running Windows XP home, 2.8ghz intel processor, 1024mb ram, Radeon 9600XT, and an Audigy 2 ZS. Upon arriving home I started to experience random freezes of the operating system. I noticed this often occured while I was running my sound card's media player so I tried updating the drivers for my sound card. After doing this, the media player claimed I had database errors and needed to reinstall JetEngine. So I went to the Microsoft website and got JetEngine which told me I already had the latest version and did not need to install it. I was still having the random freezes so I tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling the sound card drivers from the original cd. After doing this I started getting random BSODs from between 5 seconds to 5 minutes of the time I logged in. Also my computer started to reboot at random. I managed to uninstall the sound card drivers again, and this time installed the latest drivers from the website. At this point the sound worked fine again. However I could not install the media player because every time I tried to run the installer for it when it got to about 21% my computer rebooted. Also sometimes when I run trillian my computer reboots. It seems like if things get too processor intensive it reboots. Also the computer started to be extremely slow after I had installed the cd drivers. Explorer takes up about 60% of my processor usage, and everything is incred... Read more

Im running a DLink DI-524 router through a cabel modem connecting to RoadRunner Time Warner Cable. Laptops and my recently purchased Roku player have had some trouble connecting to it so I thought I would reset the router and install it all over again. I reset the router and went through the wizard connecting directly thought it with the IP address provided in the manual. Im almost positive all the settings are the same but I changed the security. I used to have WPA-PSK password but the security settings wouldnt stick so I just kept the default WEP setting and made a password. The internet works and everybody can connect but its unbearably slow for downloading/streaming stuff. I am on a hardwired connection on this computer and my 360 next to it. When I attempt to stream netflix through my 360 Im getting a 1 bar quality rate and it barely runs. Also, downloads on the 360 are very very slow. Any help to what might have happened? What should I do? Thanks
 

Answer:Internet Running Extremely Slow After Router Reboot

Hav you tried connecting directly to the cable modem? I would say its pretty safe to assume that the router is the issue, but on the off chance its your ISP you may want to check.

Also try just powercycling the router. It may just need to reload its config.

I rebooted my computer recently and when it started up, the Windows Classic theme was enabled, and all options to enable Aero had disappeared.

In addition, everything in Windows Explorer is incredibly slow, most notably opening folders on the start menu (it freezes explorer.exe for about 45 seconds then closes the start menu; when i try again it works for that folder only. Everything else freezes and repeats the process.) I also noticed that none of the services show up in the Service management window.

Any idea what this might be? The only thing I installed recently was Visual Studio 2005, with all updates and the service pack. Oh, and I tried System Restore.

I just got this computer a month ago and I finally customized it with all of my programs and settings. I really don't want to have to fully restore it.

I recently received an 850-065se and I am now trying to upgrade the original HDD to a Samsung 950PRO 512GB SSD.  I installed the SSD, loaded Samsung's driver and migration (clone) software (it ran without a hitch).  Then I disconnected the original hard drive. Now I get the blue HP logo followed by a minute of black screen, then "Starting Windows" for an additional 5 minutes and finally Win7 is ready to go.  Win7 performance now reports the "hard drive" is a 7.9 Nice, but that 6 minute boot time is really painful.  I am guessing that it is still looking for the old SATA0 HDD and finally timing out.  I have tried changing the boot order in bios but that just causes a "Load error:  no hard drive detected or drive has failed" messsage.  I feel somewhat confident that the ssd is working because the system does finally boot from it and it's performance is amazing once the system is up: seq-read 1534 MB/s, seq-write 1303 MB/s, random reads 129936 IOPS, random writes 61982 IOPS. Summary:  SSD works, but when Windows Boot Manager is enabled in BIOS then 6-minute boot time; when Windows Boot Manager is disabled then immediate "Load error:  no hard drive detected..." message.  After some research it appears that Windows Installer creates a Boot Config Data record on the install drive, and this file lists the boot order of system devices.  Devices are identified by their un...

Hi,

I have run into a situation and I hope someone knows how to solve it....

I use excel to create reports for my program.

In Win XP it all works fine.

When I try it on Vista or Windows 7 the report generation is very slow.

Does anyone know what is causing this and how to fix it?

I'm not doing anything special, just adding data to cells with code like:

oSheet:Cells( nRow, nCol ):Value := "Some Data"

Is there a tweak that can be done in Vista/Win7 to solve this type of problem?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

I have a very annoying problem with my PC.
Most of the time the PC responds very very slow, windows are maximizing in 5-10secs, ApexDC++ takes ages to maximize, typed characters don't appear in real-time in Yahoo Messenger, Explorer is also very slow and shows that waiting cursor every time I change the folders( this is the most annoying aspect), etc.
At the same time I was running an XP in VMware, for a test, and it's Explorer was very snappy.

The PC reacts like it is overwhelmed. Things like these happened when I had a Duron 900Mhz +256MB RAM.
The actual PC is a quad core Q8300, 8GB RAM DDR2, ATI x550(an old video card, but not important because I don't play games) and a Samsung HE642JJ HDD on AHCI mode.



The things that work in the baground are a few emule instances, an ApexDC++ instance and uTorrent.
All of these don't use more than 2048kbps up or down. The only thing is that those 2048kbps are divided in small streams depending on the files that are being uploaded or downloaded.

The CPU usage varies from 20 to 90%, the RAM usage is up to 75%.
I have stopped the indexing, but superfetching is activated. The HDD seems fine in HD Tune, no errors, normal speed graph, SMART is OK.
I've turned off NOD32 AV but saw no difference.
I use the Comodo Firewall, and ofc, the Windows Firewall is turned off.
(I see now that Windows Defender is still on.)
I have no viruses, never had a crash, nor a reset, from the last time I reinstalled the OS.

Once it gets to checking compatibility... it drops to a crawl... access the HDD maybe one click every 10-15 seconds.. it has been almost 2 hours just one checking compatibility...
I tried this process yesterday as well, took about 5 hours to get to gather files, settings and programs, which ran for 14 hours before I stopped it (IT was on 50%)
I've tried a number of different things, even went so far as to enable the hidden admin account and try that way.. same thing.... it DOES however work in safe mode, up until it tells me I can't do it in safe mode.. but checking compatibility only took about 6 min with full HDD accessing the whole time.

I've been putting my first build together and completed it a couple of days ago. I was using it, but realized I had accidentally installed a 32bit version rather then the 64bit of windows 7 and as a result my ram was being under utilized. I double checked my cpu and installed the 64bit version of windows, but know that I have everything reinstalled, the windows updates seemed to be taking forever, and the computer is acting very slow and unresponsive, it ran much better using the 32bit version of windows.

I'm at wits end, as the two set ups were practically identical, aside from the 32/64 change.

Parts
AMD Phenom II x4 3.0GHz Quad-Core
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Micro ATX AM3+
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2 s 4GB) DDR3-1600
XFX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V

I appreciate any help.

My w540 is a win7 64 machine. I have a virtualbox win7 on it. The virtualbox version is 4.3.12R93733. The virtualbox has the default NAT, Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM) network setting. I found the guest win7 is extremely slow for internet. I search online and seems I am not alone. Are you have a solution for this? 

Answer:extremely slow internet win7 virtualbox on w540

VirtualBox version 4.3.12 is very old and seriously vulnerable, upgrade to a recent one. Use VirtualBox forum for its related issues https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewforum.php?f=6

For the past year I've been trying to fix an IE11 problem to no avail. I need this for some business but use Chrome or Mozilla most of the time now. Additionally, my computer is very slow at start up, often hangs, I get BSOD or black screen on occasion and my system, in general, seems moody. 
I'm very good at using utility software to check for malware and spyware, cleaning cache, use Kaspersky Internet Security software, Malwarebytes, etc. Haven't found anything that could be making my computer act so slow. I have two external drives connected but only use them for back up or if I need old info.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Win7 extremely slow, IE crashes, hanging and crashing! What's up?

Hello, the computer I am concerned with is running Windows 7 with IE8, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking without issue.

The owner of the computer says that something happened earlier today while he was online that sounds like some false antivirus popup, but he's unsure. Here are the symptoms in normal mode. Every application, from moving through them to opening and closing them, runs exceptionally slow - one to three minutes to open, at least a minute to open internet pages. I noticed that, when in IE, as the pages are loading the IE page disappears and reappears. I am not very familiar with Windows 7 so I don't know if it is related. The computer seems to be getting slower as the day goes on. CPU usage is very high.

So far, I have disabled many startup items that were unnecessary. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up. MBAM was run in both normal and safe mode, full scans, and found nothing. This is also posted in Viruses and Malware, but I'm unsure where it should live.

If you can help, thanks!! I have to work on the Win7 computer from LogMeIn, and may have to get around in safe mode there.

Answer:Win7 runs extremely slow in normal mode, but nicely in safe mode

I suggest you wait for a response from the malware specialists before looking elsewhere.

I've been using the Windows 7 Ultimate release candidate as an evaluation copy for a while now with no problems. I have an ATI radeon mobility X1600 graphics card in my laptop and I'm using an external monitor through my laptop's DVI port. I bought a product key for Windows 7 professional and therefore had to reinstall that version because I'm using Ultimate as the evaluation copy. I have each version on its own partition so I can switch back and forth between the two.

The problem is that the newly installed windows professional copy will not recognize my ATI graphics card and I can't use my external monitor. It has the standard windows VGA adapter drivers installed. I've installed and run the ATI file i downloaded off their site, '9-9_beta_win7_32_dd_CC', and this accomplishes nothing. I looked in device manager on the working ultimate version and the card is installed correctly so I copied all of the drivers and files it says its using and then tried to update the driver for the standard windows VGA adapter and it says it can't find any better drivers than the current ones.

I remember initially having this same problem when I first installed the Win7 Ultimate RC several months ago but I have no clue how I was able to get it to work... Any ideas?

Answer:ATI card works fine in Win7 Ult RC, not in Win7 Prof

There's a thread on the MS social forum about the X1600. Have you read it?

I need working driver for my ati radeon x1600 (windows 7)

My HP laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium takes forever to boot to the desktop, and when it finally does, it runs extremely slowly and locks up after a few minutes. I seem to have no problem running in safe mode, however. I have Norton antivirus, and I've run several scans, but it's not finding anything. Please help if you can.

Thanks.

It started about two days ago, I was using this connection for ages now. The download speed seems fine at the moment but my ping goes through the roof.
I tried restarting the router, I have no process running in the background stealing speed or any of that stuff.
 

Answer:Relatively fine download speed, extremely high ping

Maybe you should move closer to your router, or it could be your firewall slowing down your ping. You could also use a wired connection (like a Ethernet cable) if you haven't already. Also, did you do anything to affect your connection those two days ago? Or did it happen out of nowhere? Make sure to scan for malware or other malicious software on your computer that could be messing with it. Most people here ask for ipconfig/all, it usually reveals the problems of your connection issues. So make sure to put that in your thread soon. You can also put your PC statistics as well for us to see if anything would be incompatible with your computer and router.

Hello all!

I'm sorry I have to bother you guys about this, but I really do not know what to do on my own. My computer was recently hit by some popups from Internet Explorer, and eversince then it has been EXTREMELY slow. The internet is not exactly slow, but everything else about the computer is. Starting up the computer takes forever, loading up programs, you name it. The computer itself is not even that slow, and never performed this bad, so I am sure this problem is virus/malware related. I also have been forced to use Mozilla eversince the popup barrage from IE, which I have never exactly liked. Anyways, here is the HiJackThisLog below. Thanks again in advance!

This is quite possibly the strangest error sequence I've come across in all my years working with computers.

My system has issues. Unfortunately. Possibly more than one. But I do know that for about the last month, up until this morning, any attempt to turn on my system would require the user to boot into Windows, wait ~15 seconds for a hard, BSOD-inducing crash (with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT as the cause a majority of the time), wait for the system to reboot and reach the Windows boot animation, suffer yet another hard, BSOD-inducing crash (with no minidump this time, however, since it hadn't fully loaded Windows yet), and then finally reboot once more, after which the system would seem to function perfectly. My one change this morning? I removed one stick of my RAM.

Now, normally this would seem to be pretty cut and dried, but I had similar problems with this setup earlier in the year. I exchanged my RAM twice, then my motherboard, then my RAM again, which is leading me to believe that it might well be a CPU issue (note that my system is not currently being overclocked). But my Windbg skills aren't what they used to be, and I'm currently running on a spotty 3G internet connection, so my options for diagnosis are a tad limited.

Current system specifics:
i3-530 (stock)
2x2GB OCZ PC3 12800 (OCZ3OB1600LV4GK) Obsidian Series
Gigabyte P55-UD3L

Two Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit computers on the same network, the desktop has a printer shared that the laptop would like to access.

The oddness began after I managed to get the laptop to access the desktop via Start > Run > \\desktop, successfully connected up the printer via filesharing and tested it, but every time I restart the laptop it decides that it can't find the desktop any more.

However, if I do Start > Run \\192.168.0.6 (the IP address of the desktop) from the laptop, it connects successfully every time. I've set things up like that for now, but I can't say I've ever seen an issue like this before.

If I do a name lookup on either machine, it resolves the desktop's IP address correctly, regardless of restarting the laptop. If I do \\192.168.0.6, let that open a connection successfully, then do \\desktop, it works. If I just reboot and do \\desktop, it doesn't.

Ideally I would like it to work via computer names so that the desktop doesn't require a static IP.

Answer:Win7 <-> Win7 file sharing issue after client reboot

These days we use something called User permissions and security settings to establish safe reliable network connections.

You can just right click the folders you want to share and choose the security and permissions settings, they tend to stay put after that. Or you can click on the "share" tabs and go from there. If you are using all Windows 7 machines in this network then setting up a Home group is the way to go.

Hey

I'm getting a BSOD once a day or every time my computer has been turned off for longer than just a reboot. When the computer reboots after the BSOD it runs just fine with no incidents until the next time its turned off for a bit.

IIRC it started after x version Nvidia driver and I've tried reinstalling Nvidia drivers, installing new versions, clean installs, uninstalling with Display Driver Uninstaller and then reinstalling.

Hi all,

as per usual, it is a problem that has seen me look for help and find this forum.

I have installed windows 7 on a laptop that is a few years old (fujitsu amilo v2035pro).
I thought all was fine, i used the xp gfx driver for the video which is a via s3g unichrome igp pro.
It asked for a reboot, which i did and the video came back great at 1280x800.

Trouble is, everytime i reboot the resolution goes back to 640x480 and i cant change it. I have to unistall the device, reboot, reinstall and it is fine again.

Talk about frustrating. When installed the machine works great but why the resetting of the resolution? It makes no sense.

Any help seriously appreciated as i am going insane

Answer:Cant change resolution after reboot, fine before!

I'm not sure why you would install a video driver meant for XP on a Windows 7 system, or even how you managed to do this. Did 7 not install a driver by itself?

I have a random rebooting problem.

It is a new pc build with the following attached -

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UWC ATX Mid Tower 380W
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+(65W) Windsor 2.0GHz
ECS NFORCE4M-A (V3.0) Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce4 4X ATX Mobo
WD Caviar SE WD1600JS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s HardDrive
WINTEC AMPX (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
LITE-ON 18X DVD±R DVD Burner

I have 2 sticks of ram, and I have tried swapping them out and using different slots.

I have reformatted and started to install windows multiple times. It will always get through the formatting and copying of files. Then windows forces a reboot and once the windows installer starts, the random reboots begin. Sometimes I get to set the date/time and admin password before it starts, other times it starts immediately after the forced reboot. Sometimes it gets in a loop and restarts 3-4 times and finally dies with the monitor not getting any signal.

I would think it was the mobo, power supply, or video card but it is only partially random. It seems really odd to me that it always works fine while formatting (and it takes 30-45 mins) and only starts acting up once the windows installer starts. I have tried both regular and quick format multiple times each.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a 5 year old Micron Millennia running Windows98 (I know -- sounds pretty pathetic).

In the last week or so the screen will be grayed out (you can see everything, but it's very hard to see) on boot. If you reboot it several times, the screen will eventually come back and be fine.

I tried just not powering it down -- and that works fairly well, except the screen went dim while the computer was up and running, one time. We tried replacing the video card -- got a new GeForce NVidea 6200 (which is compatible with Windows98) and everything was fine -- for a while, then the problem cropped up again.

What to do? The monitor appears to be working okay otherwise. We tried plugging in a different monitor and the problem was just the same.

Thank-you for any help or advice that you can give.

I am trying to dual boot Vist with XP Pro. Vista installs without any problems. When I get to the welcome screen and start using Vista, everything works as expected, not great, but I get to use the operating system. When I reboot the system, my computer only has the option to boot to XP. There is no option in the boot ini file that recognizes Vista was ever installed. The partition which I installed Vista to has it in there. I have tried formatting the partition about 3 or 4 times and every time I install Vista, I get the same results (Vista works untill I reboot and then I can't boot to it)

Has anyone else experienced this, or any ideas how to fix it?

I had a similar problem. I had XP on one hard drive & Vista on another. I was not able to get a boot menu to display. I had to go into my bios & change the hard drive priority setting. I believe you can add info to the XP boot.ini to boot into Vista.

I just did a Google search and found the following utility for Vista. It's called EasyBCD. It may help you.

Ok, another Network problem I'm having is that the 9 shares that I have on my Win7 machine are shared among a small network with a couple of Vista machines, 1 Win7 machine and a couple of XP machines and even one Mac. Every once in a while when users on the XP machines try to use the shares, they are prompted with a username and password, and no matter what is entered they are not allowed access, even a good account and password on the Win7 machine. They are told that the shares cannot be found, however they can still ping the Win7 machine, and they previously used the shares for days without problems. A reboot of the XP machine has no effect, however rebooting my Win7 (then manually readding the shares) clears it up. Again, WHY!

This I could see as being a bug, but it's still a pretty big one. Any help would be appreciated!

Answer:Continuous reboot in XP but safe mode does fine

That would typically indicate a hardware issue. If there are multiple sticks of RAM present, try only one at a time. You may also want to try a different video card if possible, or test the current video card in another system.

Specs:
- PC Chips A15G mother board, BIOS just flashed with the 2008/08/12 update
- 2x Western Digital WD10EADS 1TB hard drives set up as a RAID 1
- Fresh install of Windows XP using the F6 function to install the RAID drivers, updated to Service Pack 3
(I can provide more system information if it will help)

I just upgraded my home-built desktop from a single 80G IDE hard drive to a RAID 1 with dual 1TB SATA drives with a fresh install of XP using the F6 option and installing the required RAID drivers. The system runs great but it would not power down after shutting XP down. After flashing the BIOS with the 2008/08/12 update, things get weirder.

The machine still doesn't power down when I shut down XP, but will shut down if I hold the power button for 3 seconds or so. However, if I press the Reset button on the front of the case the machine shuts down instantly, but does not reboot. When I select "Restart" from the shut down menu, the machine shuts down instead of rebooting. Even further, if I go into the BIOS menu then exit, the machine shuts down instead of rebooting.

The XP install is new this weekend so if I need to do something major it isn't a big deal. Is there some sort of BIOS setting that I have wrong or is something corrupt? The machine ran completely normally with the 80G IDE drive.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jimal
 

Answer:Computer works fine, but will not reboot when requested

This appears to be a RAID issue, try disabling RAID and pulling one of your hard drives see if that changes anything.

I wonder if someone in the forum can help me with an intermittent problem I'm experiencing with my Windows 7 / Linux Mint machine. This is been going on for approximately 4 to 6 weeks I can't relate it to the installation of any updates from Microsoft, or any new software installations, because there haven't been any new programs added. I have most of the MS Hotfixes but most of the ones pertaining to Win 10 I have removed or blocked with GRC "Never 10"


The problem starts with the monitor flickering momentarily, it then goes to a black screen with the message "no signal found." Initially I thought this was coming from the operating system but in fact that message is being generated by the ViewSonic monitor. Without doing anything else,letting the machine continue to run, I plug in a spare monitor into one of the two available graphic ports I get the same result, a black screen. If I reboot the machine of course I get a message saying that Windows wasn't shut down properly, which makes sense because I can't see the screen. Plugging in the spare monitor eliminates the monitor being the problem and the DVI cable since it's a different cable.

Inside the box, all seven of the cooling fans are clean and operating. I've taken out the Nvidia 8800 GTS graphics card, cleaned out the PCI slot that it occupies as well as the power input cable from the power supply. Initially I thought I had solved the problem but yesterday without warning, the monitor flic... Read more

Anytime I do a reboot the system hangs with a black screen right before the Windows XP splash screen. No blinking curser on the screen and no hard drive activity but all of the other lights on the computer are on. I can turn the computer off and back on and it boots up fine. It doesn't even hesitate at the point where it hangs during a reboot.

I recently had to visit the Am I infected? What do I do? forum to get rid of a google redirect problem but this was happening before that. It is just starting to irritate me because I went through the process of updating everything and I can't just do a reboot during the updates anymore.

I downloaded the hard drive diagnostics check from western digital and the drive checks out fine. I'm not familiar with any of the utilities mentioned in the pinned posts so I'm afraid to run them without help and specific directions.

Operating system is Windows XP Professional (64-bit) Service Pack 2.

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jo Ann

Hello, the puter is my
DELL laptop Latitude D600, W2K SP4,
Intel Pentium M 1,4 GHz

It used to be my work laptop, but I saved it from beeing discarded. I no longer have access to the company network, but the company domain has still stayed as the login domain.

My problem is that once or twice a day the computer freezes so that everything lags very much. Mouse becomes erradic and moves for a second then freezes for a second, moves and so on. You can move it carefully and it will respond after the freeze to the movements You made during the freeze time. Difficult and frustrating. Same with keyboard. It will be fine after a reboot but even getting the reboot is frustrating because either by mouse or by CTRL-ALT-DEL the restart is a pain to achieve because of poor response.

I dont know what is hogging the system resources. I cannot find anything in the task manager information and I have no know security issues or threats.

I use AVIRA and ZoneAlarm free versions and I have CCleaner 1.36.430 running /auto with startup

Hello,

I recently purchased a new Alienware Laptop with Windows 10 installed. I'm having issues where on start-up, programs such as File Explorer, Internet Explorer etc. are taking 5-10 mins to load, whilst Apps such as Windows Edge load straight away. If I also try to open say my C Drive on File Explorer once it loads, I just get the Blue Loading Disc for another 5-10 mins until that loads.

But if I restart my laptop, everything then seems to run fine after that (but obviously I don't want to have to keep doing that as a permanent solution). I'll run a Virus Scan and make sure there's nothing bad on there but has anybody seen anything like this before and can offer some assistance?

Answer:Windows 10 Explorer Problems at Start Up But Fine on Reboot

I've seen that happen but it was some time ago, back in the days when computers started becoming faster processing but the HDDs were not keeping up in access speed, about when the 80486 was giving way to the Pentium-class processors. The initial bootup was faster than the HDD could deliver data but the reboot happened fast enough the HDD hadn't fully shut down, was still spinning. All that to say your situation may be a problem developing with the HDD.

I'm running Windows XP and am having issue with Outlook 2003.

I open Outlook when I boot up my computer and it works fine. I'm using it for Contacts and Calendar mainly, no to send emails. I minimize it to the taskbar and then go about my business opening new programs, etc.

After about 10 minutes, if I try to toggle back to Outlook and open it up, it gives me a blank white screen. Nothing I do will revive it. After I CTRL ALT DELETE to close Outlook and then try to reopen Outlook...it doesn't open. I have to actually restart the computer for it to work again.

Here's some background that might shed more light on a potential problem:

I'm 2-Way syncing Outlook with Google Calendar. I also have MobilMe and am syncing Outlook with MobileMe. I'm not sure if this could be causing a problem with Outlook.

I've even removed and re-installed the entire Microsoft Office 2003 Suite hoping that would fix the issue, but it hasn't.

One interesting thing is that when I re-installed Outlook, it automatically found my .pst file (which I don't store on the C drive...I moved it to my D drive). I usually have to remove the .pst file from where it normally resides by default and then Outlook will ask me where is the file and then I tell it. I'm curious how it remembered my .pst file was on my D drive if it was a clean install?

Thanks in advance if you can help me.

It reports that the cable is unplugged. It definitely is plugged in, it goes straight into a Netgear Powerline homeplug.

If I then reboot, it connects straight away no problem at all.

Hey guys, I already searched but the search kept crashing. I found one closed thread on this subject using google search but it didn't contain any information on how to solve the problem. Anyway...

After the computer has been on for a while, the internet just stops working. The problem is the same in both firefox and ie. Browser will try to search for one split second and then stops and says done with a blank page. When I reboot the problem is fine. Instant messaging programs, if connected, will still function after the internet goes out.

The problem is NOT my wireless or network card, and i am still connected to the network and everything is fine. resetting the router doesn't help, nor does flipping off the wireless switch and flipping it back on.

nothing helps except restarting the computer. I really don't want to reformat over this. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello! and thanks for taking your time to read this sos and for trying to reply.

I have a 3 ghz computer running on 120gb hdd etc. serial hdd. When I try starting up the computer, I get to windows xp screen, and then the computer restarts. I tried starting up with a os on a disk (one of those cd's that have their own os, and I got the same thing. Next I tried the process of eleminitation, took everything out and tried again. Nothing there. I tried restarting without the hdd, and everything works fine, Having that, I understood that my problem is with my hdd. However when I put it in my other computer as a slave, I was able to view all the files. I tried a chkdsk /r and it comes up clean. sooo in short, starting up with the hdd, computer reboots, as a slave, works just fine.

If you can think of any solution, and wouldn't mind to share with me, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for taking your time and for trying to solve the problem with me.

I deployed Vista Business over the weekend to test the migration strategy for our standard desktop (XP, Kaspersky, Office, AutoCAD, FileMaker) to Windows 7. I deployed Vista on an ASUS P4VM800 mother board with 1 200GB WD IDE drive, 1 500 GB WD SATA drive, 1GB RAM, Intel P4 2.0 Ghz CPU, 10/100, Netgear Wifi card, USB Mouse and Keyboard. It worked fine. VERY SLOW but fine. I performed all updates and activated automatic updates. I installed Kaspersky and when it rebooted - it crashed. It has never recovered.

I tried Last known Good and it hung. The hard drive would flash sometimes as if it is trying to do something and it would run the drive as if the drive was damaged. It would spin up, slow down and spin up again. There is a clicking sound each time it slows down. The keyboard locks up and it loads the WIFI driver as my USB dongle flashes as if it is on the network. Mouse works also. This continued for 5 minutes before I cold booted the machine.

I tried rebooting in Safe Mode and CRCDISK is the last thing it loads then it repeats the same symptoms stated above. I inserted the Vista DVD and it comes up with a blank screen with the Vista Background. The mouse and keyboard work but there is nothing presented on the screen before it starts acting up again.

What is this? Why is it happening? I would think Vista updates would be stabilized by now to prevent this. If this was not a LAB and happening in my workplace - there would be hell to pay. Please tell me Microsoft h... Read more

After 5-10 min, windows vista (ultimate) freeze and i need to stop/reboot many time to finally success and boot until the desktop.
Sometime i need to boot in safe mode without network and wait on desktop for 5 min

The warranty is ended last january so ...

Does someone have any idea?

thanks

Answer:Satellite P200 freezes after 5-10 min and need multiple reboot to work fine

Try installing the latest Windows Updates.
If not I'd suggest you do a CLEAN install. If your laptop came with a DVD disc labelled "Windows Anytime Upgrade", then use that and download the drivers from the Toshiba Website. If it asks you for a product key, there should be one underneath your laptop.

If not, then use the recovery discs that came with your laptop.

I was getting a lot of BSOD so I used my recovery cd and started over. After all windows updates were installed after the computer has been off for a long time, on boot I get the windows\system32\config\system is misisng or corrupt and i can use my windows cd to do repair.... If I power off and power up again right away, same message. If I just let it sit there for a minute then turn it off and back on, boom works perfectly. Occasionally I will get ain IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL but rarely once windows shows the desktop.

SO I thought maybe this was a hard drive issue and I got a new hard drive and cloned the old one. Same thing with the new one... I assume this could be software so I just took the issue from one drive to the other.... But I'm wondering if this is some other kind of hardware issue, and where should I start?

Hello all,

First off, I have been searching these forums for several days and have seen a number of people reporting slow wireless connections in Windows 7. Which was comforting, knowing I was not alone - but unfortunately I've yet to find the answer in any of the older posts, so I am hoping that making one of my own will help resolve this. Sorry to add to the noise, but I'm kind of out of ideas. Now for the problem:

Initially my wireless speed in Windows 7 was comparable to what I got under XP - mainly 54mbps but occasionally dropping lower, but nothing out of the ordinary. However, I've recently noticed that I am never going about 18mpbs now on my wireless connection, and the actual speed seems to be bottlenecked even slower than that. Example, here is a speed test I just ran.

Here is the results of my ipconfig /all

Answer:Slow Wireless Speeds - Laptop is fine, Desktop is SLOW

I almost don't believe it, because I could have sworn I had tried this in the past. I changed the broadcast channel from 10 to 1 after doing another WiFi channel search and seeing a new network broadcasting on 8. I was still getting good signal strength, but I figured it couldn't hurt. About 30 seconds later my wireless speed jumped back up to 54mbps and this is the speed test now.



Glad its fixed, but I almost don't trust that this will stay fixed. Going to leave this open for a day or two to see if anyone else has any suggestions that I might want to try.

I have an IDE to USB adapter which is over ten years old. It works on my Windows 7 laptop but not on my Windows 10 desktop. My Windows 10 desktop shows a drive letter under My Computer for a short time but it doesn't give a volume name or capacity and the drive letter disappears after a short time.

How can I get information from my Windows 7 laptop to help me get the adapter to work with my Windows 10 desktop? If I go into Device Manager in Windows 7, I see the model number of whatever IDE drive I connect followed by USB but really I think I'm interested in the driver that makes the converter work?

The converter doesn't have a model number although the PCB has U235 REV.C printed on it. There is an IC chip with CL811USB 0351MHGA6-24 on it and I can find information on the CL811USB controller but nothing indicating that there is a driver for Windows 10. Would it make sense to try to extract the driver being used on Windows 7 and install it on Windows 10?

Hey guys, I have an odd problem with a relatively new Win7 machine and my firewall at the house. I have a Linux fw setup on an older pc, and I have been using it for a while now. We upgraded to 60Mbit internet from 25, and we noticed an issue with the Win7 machine:

OSX to Linux fw to cable modem = 64Mbits
FreeBSD to linux fw to cable modem = 64Mbits

Win7 to Linux fw to cable modem = ~22Mbits
Win7 to cable modem = 64Mbits
Win7 to FreeBSD fileserver = gigabit speeds (~100-110MB/s)

Now the weird part is that ANY other OS I get 64Mbits going through the fw.. Xp, Mac OS, FreeBSD, etc. it seems like only Win7 is getting limited when going through the fw, and I don't have anything fancy setup.. just have a couple ports forwarded

I even tested this with 2 virtual machines running on my mac. Ubuntu gets 64Mbits, Win7 vm gets ~22Mbits, so its definately a 7 issue only

Hello folks, first time posting here and hoping to get some help with my problem. Just FYI, I am posting this from my laptop (not the computer with the problem) seeing as that computer is almost unusable in its current state.

I'll try to be as specific as possible until I can get logged on to the other computer and get information you folks may need.

About a day ago, I was searching for mods for Skyrim. My computer had been running perfectly fine and as fast as usual since I could remember before this point. However, in the midst of searching, Google Chrome stopped responding. I tried to start the task manager with Ctrl-Alt-Del, but nothing happened, so I had to force shut down via the power button.

When my computer starts, one of the fans goes full force before anything on the screen appears, and during this restart I noticed the fan was running at that speed for a significantly longer time than usual. Sure enough, when the "Starting Windows" screen appeared, the little Windows animation didn't appear right away, maybe a minute later it finally showed up. This part of start up took about 5-10 minutes, then the screen went black with just the white mouse cursor in the middle of the screen (was movable), then finally the password entry screen appeared. After putting in the password, another 5-10 minutes went by and was followed by a black screen with a white cursor once again.

Earlier today, my PC went from being perfectly fine to being extremely slow. I had a hunch that it may have been a virus or some serious malware so I tried to open up Malware and Ad-aware but everything was 'not responding.'

I ended up powering off via holding button. When I tried to load up again, the PC loaded to the blue welcome screen, but from there, it just hanged. i could open task manager but I was unable to open file > new task or anything.

I was able to go into safemode and load up Malware and Ad-aware. I searched on the internet from my laptop about what could be causing this. I found that a virus named Nimda could be a culprit. I found a fix for it so I cancelled my scans and tried the fix, but it did not work.

So here I am, back in safemode, attempting to run the scans on 2 of my harddrives.

If this does not work, does anyone have any advice or insight?

Thanks, I appreciate it!

On one of the computers of the workers, logging in into her account has become extremely slow. From when she gives in her password to when she can finally get to use the computer, it lasts about 4-5 mins. Then she can use the computer comfortably, but when she tries to use Microsoft outlook, outlook also freezes for about 5mins before she can finally get to using it.

This problem started suddenly, prior to this, the computer had been working just fine. I've defragmented, ran chkdsk, reduced the number of programs that start on bootup, stopped some services from running, but the problem is still thesame.

What I've noticed is that it happens with her account, but doesn't happen with my administrator account. Anybody familiar with such a problem? Any help will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Answer:Extremely slow loggin into Domain, Microsoft Outlook very slow.

Is it just with her account, or with her computer? It sounds like she just might have a slow nic card. Run the ping 127.0.0.1 which is the harware loopback test. Maybe it is just intermittent activity, that being why it is taking so long. Also see if there is another computer on the local network segment that could be causing the problem but sputtering out junk packets. Run network monitor and see what is happening on the network. Maybe there is too much dhcp traffic, if thats the case just increase the lease time. It could be a lot of stuff but i hope i helped with some places to check.

During copying files even small size (Say about 500 MB), Windows 10 suddenly drops speed after about 30 seconds to 10 KBPS and then many times to Zero. This transfer process thus becomes extremely slow and along with that the whole laptop becomes extremely slow - Example during transfer to open My Computer takes 3 minutes to open and finally the PC hangs. If no data transfer is happening the laptop works perfect but only after reboot. Once data transfer has started the whole PC slows down and works normally only after reboot.

Earlier today, my PC went from being perfectly fine to being extremely slow. I had a hunch that it may have been a virus or some serious malware so I tried to open up Malware and Ad-aware but everything was 'not responding.'

I ended up powering off via holding button. When I tried to load up again, the PC loaded to the blue welcome screen, but from there, it just hanged. i could open task manager but I was unable to open file > new task or anything.

I was able to go into safemode and load up Malware and Ad-aware. I searched on the internet from my laptop about what could be causing this. I found that a virus named Nimda could be a culprit. I found a fix for it so I cancelled my scans and rebooted. This time, I let it sit there. Everything had loaded properly...35min later! From here, everything was very slow.

I tried to open certain things like start menu or my computer, and it ended up taking 2-3min for each action.

Also, task manager (even opening task manager took 4min alone) showed very low CPU usage (about 1-2%) and about 20% physical memory usage.

My computer specs:
Win7 x64
Intel Core2 E7200
4 gigs of RAM
ATI HD4870

So here I am, back in safemode, attempting to run the scans (using Malware bytes + ad-aware + spybot) on 2 of my harddrives.

If this does not work, does anyone have any advice or insight?

Thanks, I appreciate it!

The issue I'm having is everything seems fine till the first reboot, then I get errors about some random important file is missing or corrupt, please insert your DVD and repair windows or whatever the hell it says. The specified missing file is always different each install attempt (I have made about 30ish attemps so far in every drive configuration I could think of). Once it even said 'a system file' is missing or corrupt with no file specified. One attempt (120gb drives in raid0 with no other drives attached) did make it to the Win7 load screen, but then windows encountered an 'unknown error' and had to close while finalizing.

What I wanted to do was raid0 the 60's for boot and raid0 the 120's for games, but I can't do that because while this mb has 4 sata3 ports, only 2 ports are raid capable (Intel C600 controller) as the other 2 are on an ASMedia controller. As that is the least of my problems and only my fault for making assumptions before I buy crap, what I thought to do instead was install win on one 60 on the ASMedia sata3 controller in AHCI with OPROM enabled, use the other 60 for task file, and raid0 the 120's for game installs.

Answer:Win7 will not complete install on SSD - works fine on HDD

Where did you get WIn7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Confirm ISO integrity and burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed. Or write to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu.

Reset BIOS to defaults, then set SATA controller to AHCI. Remove all but one HD, then try install again.

Next try removing all but one stick of RAM to try install. Try swapping RAM sticks. Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Win7 does not like RAID. It confers no benefits as it isn't even redundant since if one HD fails you lose everything.

There seems to be something fundamental to the Windows 7 64 Ultimate operating system that is preventing the 32 bit browers from working.

There are 2 potential issues that I feel may have contributed to this situation:I had installed ASUS Gamer OSD. When I tried to operate the program, it said I had installed a 32 bit version and it would not run on a 64 but system. Suspecting this to be a potential cause, I tried to unistall it, but it would not go. I bought Uninstall Tool www.crystalidea.com and used 'force removal'. This appeared to largely remove it. I then searched the registry with regedit and removed all evidence of GamerOSD & SmartDoctor (wich was installed at the same time as GamerOSD). Unfortunately this did not fix the situation.

Canon MP610 USB printer
Test Page works fine for the Canon Printer; it takes a long time but Test Page also works for Acrobat; works quickly for XPS Document Writer.

I honestly don?t know where to go next. I think the problem is in how Windows communicates the print instructions from applications to the print devices. But I don?t know how to go there. Hoping for help here and much appreciated.

No hardware changes; I had installed two software apps so I?ve uninstalled them with Revo so I don?t think there?s a software issue. Nothing else has changed since I could print merrily along.

My problem seemed to start in Acrobat 8 (Pro) and only intermittantly but it is now system-wide and inevitable. When I try to print to anywhere, I either get a "printer not responding" message or a stall requiring a task manager "task end". I've had failures with screen prints, MS Word, Acrobat (either in the browser or stand-alone). On the stalls, I get to preparing for background print and there it sits. That seems to be true for both the Canon and Acrobat.

I've checked everything I can think of printer-wise. I've always had the Adobe as default but I switched it to the Canon. No change so I switched it back.

I've run the oh so (not) helpful Windows 7 printer trouble shooter. Nothing found there except I had unchecked the share box as I tried to solve the problem. The troubleshooter suggested I turn it back on so I did. Still no change.

I just opened a brand new T470s, running Windows 10 1709 x64 Pro. I noticed after Windows did some updates that the laptop was stuck on the Lenovo logo with the message "To interrupt normal startup, press Enter". I waited about 15 minutes, but there was no change.  I pressed Enter, but this did nothing.  I then powered the laptop off and then back on, and it displayed this message but then quickly moved past it to the rotating dots, configured Windows updates, and then successfully booted into Windows.I've done some testing, and what I've discovered is that the machine does not reboot successfully.  If some software wants me to reboot or I tell Windows to reboot, I get the behavior where it sticks on the boot screen with the Lenovo logo and that message about pressing Enter to interrupt the normal boot process.  If I shut down Windows and power it back on (or I power it off on that boot message screen and power it back on), it starts normally. I tried updating the UEFI and also Windows, but this hasn't solved the issue. Any suggestions or assistance is welcome!

Since Build 10041 I have ran the preview as a dual boot alongside Windows 7 Ultimate. The preview (and for the last week or so final build) start up rapidly, no problems. I waited to upgrade the 7 partition until after the activation servers weren't under an insanely heavy load. Upgrade went without a hitch I am now running Windows 10 Pro. BUT! It boots almost as slow as 7 does, not nearly as fast as the preview did on the same hardware (or as fast as my super weak hp pavilion e010us laptop) and I notice it still makes 7's startup tone before loading the Windows 10 logon screen. How can i repair/erase and rewrite the boot part of the hdd to drop the garbage from 7??

Since Build 10041 I have ran the preview as a dual boot alongside Windows 7 Ultimate. The preview (and for the last week or so final build) start up rapidly, no problems. I waited to upgrade the 7 partition until after the activation servers weren't under an insanely heavy load. Upgrade went without a hitch I am now running Windows 10 Pro. BUT!

I just decided to wipe the drive (including my storage partition) and do a fresh install, the quirks have disappeared and all is flawless again (except for Nvidia's drivers, and if they don't fix them soon they are gonna lose a lot of customers )
