So, I have a Windows 7 Laptop and XP,

I would know to know how to Improve the boot speed time

Is there anytime to speed it up or any tweaks or Registry Edits?
My computer does not have any maleware or spyware
Has 2GB RAM

Things I have done

Defraged HDD
Deleated Unwanted Programs
Went > Msconfig> startup > got rid of extra start up items
Went > Msconfig> Services > took of unwanted services

I tried something New which is really good which works :) helped improved speed by 10 seconds

Went > Msconfig> boot > checked No Gui boot
Went > Msconfig> boot > advance options > number of processors changed it to 2 ( has made a difference)


What else can i do? to make it even faster and cut down on the time?

What does this option do/mean Went > Msconfig> boot > advance options > Maximum memory


Thank You

I just timed my Win7 (90% Free space) and it still takes 45 to 60 seconds on average from cold boot -

I think your machine is generally at peak for 2G Ram system - All systems vary from 30 to 60 seconds on average :wink:

If you ever get your system to boot, from cold, in under 30 seconds, even with 4 G Ram, it will be the maximum you will get (my opinion)

Microsoft just do not make that type of system yet -

Maybe it's just me, but what possible difference does it make if your system boots in 1 minute or 5 minutes? As long as it works as expected once it's running, that's all that really matters.

I used to think like that EXACTLY !! Until one day someone told me this :

The average person boots up their computer 2+- times a day

The average boot time for a Windows PC is 2ish minutes? That means you spend 4ish minutes a day waiting for your computer to boot up.
That's 24.3 hours a year, just waiting for your computer to start! Almost a day Thats a massive amount of time being wasted! just sitting there staring at a screen!

I understand your point, but IF BIG IF, would you have your system to boot up in 30seconds (assuming one day windows make a super fast boot up time similar to google chrome boot) or 2 minutes ? The old saying: Time is Money

Yep i looked around and 48 seconds is very good ! for 2gb RAM! :)

LOL - okay - clearly whatever you feel you need to spend your time on is none of my business. Carry on. :)
