My win 7 version boots awfully slow. Is that the case for anyone else? It takes my PC from pushing start button on PC to actual desktop 3 min and 50 secs. When I first push on start button I get to a blinking cursor and it stays there for 2 minutes. Anyone know why this is happening?


thx

Hi Snooker, Thanks for responding. Much appreciated. No external drive connected to PC nor USB devices. Boot order was cd/dvd, floppy, HD. Changed it to HD, cd/dvd, floppy but same results. It was a fresh install. Any ideas?

Snooker, I will try memtest but memory is fairly new maybe less than 5 months. Here is what I see in event viewer:

At startup and in event viewer I see this error (The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: SASDIFSV, SASKUTIL). After a half an hour into using PC I get this error (The platform firmware has corrupted memory across the previous system power transition. Please check for updated firmware for your system.) 2.5 hours into use of PC I see this error (The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage could not grow due to a user imposed limit.)


Those are the errors I see. Computer is about 2.5 years old.

thx

Hmmmm By any chance have you been messing with some services ? How does it act under safe mode . Also have you play around with your system restore , How big of a hard drive are you using . The shadow part has something to do with system restore . I will surf around and see if anything comes up with your erros . Just by chance do you have superantispyware install ? Quitting time 4 me for now but I will look and see if anything comes up.

No messing with system resore or services. HD is 70GB. yes, I tried to install super antispyware. It BSOD'd on me. I researched it further to find out it was not compatible with Win 7 yet. Thanks for helping me. I really appreciate it. How did you figure out about superantispyware trying to be installed by those errors. That amazes me.

thanks

I don't have my Win7 up and running right now, but see if you can run "perfmon /report" (without the quotes) from the Start dialog. This works in Vista and I think it works in 7 (but am not sure). Also, if you dive into the depths of your Event Viewer logs, there'll be performance logs which can tell you a lot about the performance of your system (once again, this comes from Vista but it should be similar for 7).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

How do I do this exactly? "perfmon /report" (without the quotes) from the Start dialog. From "run" box? I have never used vista. Nothing under performance in any log that I can see. Any idea?

thx for helping.

I deleted SASDIFSV and SASKUTIL from registry. All of the above issues are now gone. My PC still takes about 4 mins to boot. Any ideas why?

Click on the Start button
Type "perfmon /report" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

As for the Volume Shadow Copy service errors - have you had a virus infection on this system that was removed?

There should be information as to which service is stopped.

The multiple instances of device drivers not being installed are most likely a large part of the problem.
Go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Look for any devices with red x's or yellow !'s and let us know what they are.

Ok, Under other devices there is 2 entries of "IPMI interfaces" and "PCI serial Port" with yellow ! point next to them. How would I go abouts fixing this please? I appreciate your help. Should I click on each one and click update driver?

My mobo is a D945GTP. I am told the drivers are the same as vista 32 bit for win 7 so should I try those? If you could take your best guess? I appreciate help with it. Would it be number 3 on this page where it says chipset????? If not, what other ones do I need to d/l between 3-10?
