    Hi guys.
    On my laptop Zenbook UX31A booting up Windows sometimes is painful slow.
    It takes almost 5 min,like it's HDD not SSD to boot up to desktop.
    What would be my first step to troubleshoot this issue?
    SSD is size 114 GB and 42 GB is free.
    Thank you.

    :)

    Slow boot

    Hi Craig,

    Boot performance may slow can be due to corruptions. To assist you better, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes before this issue occur?
    • Have you tried booting up your laptop in Safe Mode and check if the issue still persist?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We're looking forward to your response.

    slow ssd

    Hi,

    Slow SSD performance can be caused by several factors like Hybernation mode and Superfetch service.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, try disabling Hibernate mode since it is unnecessary for the SSD system as it takes too much time to boot from it.

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Enter the administrator credentials once prompted.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type or copy and paste this command:

      powercfg -h off
    • Press Enter.

    Note: Once Hibernate is already disabled, you can also free up some space to improve its performance.

    We also recommenddisabing Superfetch as one way to optimize the SSD performance:

    • Press Windows key + R to open the Run
      dialog box.
    • Type services.msc and press Enter.
    • Scroll down and right-click on Superfetch.
    • Select Stop.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.

    Persistent slow boot - Windows 10 with SSD

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the time you took for the research and perform the troubleshooting, we will need more information to troubleshoot on this issue.



    1. If you could provide us with the troubleshooting that you have already performed, it will be helpful.
    2. Are you aware of any recent changes made to the system prior to this issue?




    Windows could be booting up slow if there is more application to startup when Windows boot for the first time, below are few of the steps you can try.



    Method 1:



    1. Try to
      boot your computer into Safe Mode
      and check if it still take time.
    2. If the system boots fine then it’s the third party service or application that is causing the slow boot issue.
    3. You can try to perform
      Clean Boot
      and detect which application or service is causing this issue.
    4. On the article above search for the topic How to determine what is causing the problem after you do a clean boot
      after you have put the computer to clean boot.
    5. After you have found the cause of the issue, you can search for other steps on the same article
      Reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting.


    Method 2:



    If you still face the issue you can check the article

    Tips to improve PC performance in Windows 10
    .



    To keep you informed the last topic contacts
    Reset your PC,
    I suggest you not to reset your PC, as resetting your PC will revert the system back to previous OS that you upgraded from and you will lose Application installed on the system.



    If you still face the issue, reply to this post with more information.



    Hope it helps.
