  1. Windows 10 Pro boot/power off/restart really slow


    Hello everyone,

    it has been months my laptop started to be really.... really slow, every time I sign off, restart or switch on. It takes like twenty minutes to switch off, and even more to restart. When I switch it on, booting takes about twenty minutes (rough, I didn't time it) and then once I signed in Windows, it takes something like an hour on the Windows "Welcome" page and even desktop loading is slow. Once it has done, everything else is fine.

    My laptop is: ASUS X556U
    CPU: Intel core i7-6500U 2.50GHz 2.59GHz
    RAM: 8GB
    OS: Windows10 pro 2004 version x64


    This is what I've already tried so far, but unsuccessfully:
    - Windows updates checks (everything updated)
    - Fast boot disabled
    - Hard Drive scanning (no problems found)
    - chkdsk and sfc/ scannow (scannow found some problems and fixed them)
    - start apps turned off

    :)

    windows 10 slow boot

    To add to what @Drone said, W10 still does not seem to like power-saving features in BIOS, and doesn't seem to like the "fast start" option in Windows, which ironically makes it faster without that option.

    windows 10 slow boot

    I was having a slow boot issue on my Windows 7 install a little while back. It would take about 30 - 40 extra seconds to boot up for whatever reason.

    I would try following these steps, while this didn't solve my issue, it did increase Read/Write to where it should be.

    In the end, I had to reinstall my Windows 7 entirely to fix the booting issue. It was taking around 35 seconds to boot, and after the fresh install it takes about 7 seconds to boot.
