    Very slow booting and shutting down (tens of minutes)


    When I turn off the computer, it takes appr 7 minutes(!) to show booting screen with an option to enter BIOS. During those 7 minutes, there is only a black screen with static (not blinking) underscore symbol. After those 9 minutes, the computer boots additional 2 minutes. Previously (just 3 days ago) the whole booting took around 20 sec.
    The similar issue is with turning down the computer, except it takes around half an hour. When I click the turn-off computer, the computer doesn't show any signs of doing so. I can normally work. After appr 10 minutes, the computer shows turning-off screen and turns itself down normally, except it does so for a very long time (tens of minutes) before it finally goes down.

    How it started
    The problem started 3 days ago with shutting down a computer. I have clicked shut down the computer. Windows showed "turning off" screen with the progress of some update. I wasn't aware the Windows updated but I didn't care much. The shutting down took several minutes (as it sometimes happens, so I didn't consider it as a problem at all). The following morning the computer booted very slowly for the very first time.

    I am especially worried about that several minutes before the BIOS screen. It makes me think that re-installation may not fix the issue.
    Any suggestions on what should I test or try? Thanks a lot for any help

    I have tried to restart the computer several times. I don't use "fast start up" option or hibernation (I always boot fresh).
    I have tried to search for Windows updates (no updates).
    I don't use any external antivirus. I use only default MS Defender with all suggested options turned on.
    I have not yet flashed the latest firmware for my motherboard. I was waiting for advice to avoid making the situation worse. Programs seem to work normally and I haven't noticed any slowing down.
    I don't see any suspicious activity in Task Manager either (I am not an expert so I have only checked it there is anything which would consume lots of RAM or CPU power).

    • Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64) Build 19042.804
    • APU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200GE
    • no dedicated graphics
    • 16GB RAM (2GB are dedicated for integrated graphics)
    • SSD (the system has 200GB SSD with over 80GB free space) + additional HDD for data

    Very slow boot-up time (over three minutes)

    Hi,

    There was many events that was dropped during the boot trace, but there is enough data to undertake a troubleshooting.

    First, the majority of the delay happens in the Session init phase. in this phase the OS primarily load and initialize drivers.

    I have identified two suspect drivers:
    • NoMachine Hub that causes a boot delay of 12s. Windows try to reload the catalog to check the code integrity for this driver because it's a non-embedded-signed driver. So try to upgrad to the latest version of NoMachine application.

    • But the biggest delay is caused by Intel Management Engine driver ( 90 s)

    you have the version 11.7.0.1057. There is a newer version available on the Intel website Download Intel® Management Engine Consumer Driver for Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i3DN

    Update this driver and see if that help.

    Finally take another boot trace.

    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.
