Warranty repair on new T460 taking a long time

Q: Warranty repair on new T460 taking a long time

I purchased a new T in March Within the first nbsp two nbsp weeks I noticed that the tab key sticks in the down position requiring it to be gently pried back to the up position It seemed like a fairly minor issue and upon general inspection nothing time T460 repair long on taking a new Warranty appeared out of the ordinary with the key so I was unable to fix it myself About a week after that the fingerprint scanner Warranty repair on new T460 taking a long time suddenly stopped working so I updated the drivers and checked every setting I could find to no avail It was apparent something was wrong since when it was working there was a green backlight on the fingerprint scanner and that backlight was not working after it had suddenly stopped working nbsp Before the day return window I requested warranty service from Lenovo and they promptly sent a sturdy box for shipping the laptop to the Lenovo repair nbsp center I shipped it nbsp and it's been in Lenovo repair nbsp center ever since In fact it's been there for over a month which is longer than I even had the laptop I've contacted Lenovo support multiple nbsp times with the same response it's waiting for parts on the EasyServ site it says Hold for Parts - Service call is on hold until parts arrive and they cannot provide an ETA nbsp Since there's no ETA I would like to know what my options are besides continuing to wait Could I get a loaner laptop while the T is fixed Would Lenovo send me a new T with the same configuration and just sell the faulty one in their outlet after fixing it Could I just get a full refund for the laptop plus extended warranty purchase Other options This is one of those experiences that's really leaving me dissatisfied with Lenovo so any help at this point is much appreciated

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

A:Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.

Let the system do its work. You just want to wait. Usually this don't occur unless it is a huge file. Be patient for a reasonable time. Still if it remains, try logging off/restart.

Hi
I installed vista onto an acer extensa 5235 laptop last week, replacing lubuntu.
It has worked fine until yesterday when I accidentally shut it down while windows was installing updates.

Now I get the "windows failed to start" screen
All of the options (safe mode, command prompt, last good config, start normally) just loop back to this screen.

I booted from the vista install disc,
I filled in the language, keyboard etc,
Then I clicked on "repair your computer"

Then, there is a blue windows screen (not BSOD) with the white cursor.

Nothing else happens, I left it overnight and still the same, I tried it over again today and the same happens.

It sounds like its doing something

Should I just wait? or is there anything else I can try.

I have everything I need backed up

(I need this laptop for work next week!)

Any help appreciated

I'm working on a customers Windows Vista computer long a TFC taking time that was badly infected with all sorts of TFC taking a long time adware and other malware After manually removing some of the most obvious offenders with RevoUninstaller I then proceeded to run MalwareBytes MalwareBytes ran for over hours and TFC taking a long time seemed to be hung up with processing temporary internet files I could see the filenames changing so figure it was still working albeit very slowly so I finally aborted the scan and had it clean up what it had found to that point Then rebooted the system Thinking that the next thing to do would be to run TFC and see if I couldn't get rid of some of that internet history so I could then re-attempt the scan and hope for a successful completion I started that running from my flash drive as I usually do It seemed to run fine processing through some of the user accounts but when it got to the user account that is used most of the time and finding GB yes I said gigabytes of temporary files it seemed to hang there The disk activity light seems to be on solid and nearly hours later there doesn't seem to be any progress and the program title bar now says that the program is not responding There has been no noticeable change for the last hours I would have expected with that much to delete it would take some time and wondered what that might do to the Recyle bin etc but does this sound normal At this point neither the desktop or any Windows menus etc are showing but I'm able to Ctrl-Alt-Del and get task manager running It shows TFC as using somewhere between and CPU cycles and not much else going on I've listened to the hard drive via a stethoscope and don't seem to hear any disk activity happening It would seem at this point that my only option is to force TFC to end via the Task Manager or initiate a power down and reboot Does anyone have any idea at what state this may leave the filesystem in e g should I expect major filesystem corruption Thanks in advance

I've recently re-installed Windows Vista (32 bit version) and am now trying to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) onto my Dell Precision M6300 with 4GB of RAM.

The bar (to indication progression of installation) goes across the screen quite quickly to about the half way point and then just sits there for hours.
I've let it stay for three hours to date and it won't go any further although the bar animation is still working away.
Is it that it just takes a very long time to install (maybe overnight might work?) or is it hanging through some reason or other?
This is very frustrating and any information/advice would be very welcome.

I have downloaded the newest RTM 32bit Windoows 7 from Microsoft MSDN and tried to install it on my Celeron 2 Duo 64bit system.. Now when I boot the computer up the Windows logo comes, and then it stays there for 20+ minutes before the system is booted up.. I have tried with other versions of Win7 32bit also, but its the same everytime.. Is this because I absolutly need to install a 64bit version? I remember that I once had 32bit Vista on another 64bit system and that worked fine...

Anyone experienced this before?

I have a virus of some kind - think it is in my IP stack - invisible copies of notepad, srvhost, presentationhost, cmd all running in task manager, CPU goes to 100%.
 
Trying to scan with ComboFix now, for the last five hours in fact, it seems to have stopped at the bit where it tells me that it will take 10 minutes or maybe 20.
 
The hard drive is going like the clappers, so I am reluctant to stop, but there comes a point - doesn't there?
 
Should I stop it and restart with the NOMBR option?
 
 

A:ComboFix - Taking a very long time...

As a general policy, Bleeping Computer does not offer advice on how to run ComboFix unless we asked someone to run it or if there is a problem with the computer caused by running the tool. We recommend that people should not be using ComboFix without being advised to do so by a trained expert (see here) who is assisting them deal with a malware problem. When issues arise due to complex malware infections, problems running ComboFix (i.e. stalling, hanging, crashing) or with other security tools causing conflicts, experts are usually aware of them and can advise what should or should not be done while providing individual assistance.With that said, there are circumstances ComboFix will hang, crash or stall at various stages due to malware interference, failure to disable other real-time protection tools or the presence of CD Emulators (Daemon Tools, Alchohol 120%, Astroburn, AnyDVD) so that it does not complete successfully. Also, depending on how badly a system is infected, ComboFix may take longer to complete its routine than it normally does or fail to run properly. While that is not normal behavior, it is not unusual. In such cases, it is helpful to know at what stage ComboFix stalled/crashed and to provide that information to the Helper who is assisting you so they can investigate. Using Task Manager to stop ComboFix's related process usually is enough to abort it.Open Task Manager and look for the following ComboFix related processes (some have a .3XE extension):PEV.exeNirCmd.3XEPEV.3XESEDGREPany file that has the extension *.3XE except CF*****.3XE <- do not end this processOne at a time, right-click and select End Process. If doing that did not free ComboFix and allow it to continue, then you will need to reboot the computer manually.Afterwards, please do NOT run ComboFix again unless asked to do so by a member of the Malware Removal Team.If you need further assistance with a malware infection, please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.After doing that, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.

Well recently I decided to switch motherboards and sysprep for switching. I started syspreping 9 hours ago and it is still going..I don't know what to do now. I searched online and people say it should take 5 minutes max. Mine has been going for 9 hours..It is stuck at "Processing generalize phase Sysprep plugins". I ran it OOBE and checked generalize.

It's a multi-faceted program and does some very useful things...registry-editing is not considered to be one of those that is useful or should be recommended/suggested.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.?Ed Bott's Webog: Why I don't use registry cleaners?Do I need a Registry Cleaner?

First off It will be a little slow because of your system specs..

But turn off SMART. as this just slows down the Hard drive. it monitors the HD constanstly to make sure its not going to Die on ya, and its really never right anyway..

Try this to make windows boot faster..
Go to start. Click run
Type in regedit
Locate the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\MemoryManagement\PrefetchParameters

On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).

Close the registry editor.

Restart your computer.

The loading screen doesn't take a long time and the logon screen comes up pretty quickly, but I'm just concerned about what is happening right after I press the power button. There is a blank screen for far too long (no cursor, ctrl-alt-del doesn't work, nothing.)

The Task Manager says the last BIOS time is anywhere from 60-90 seconds (I got different times throughout the last few days). I have updated all drivers and turned on Fast Startup. Any other suggestions/help would be much appreciated!

I have a Dell PC. The MB and RAM are the only parts that are still original. Video Card, HDs, and PSU have been replaced.

Since I did the replacement, actually a friend did the installation of the new parts, my PC now takes a very long time to start up. I hit the power button, nothing happens...but if you listen you can hear a fan whirring up and down repeatedly. After about roughly 3 minutes, I hear another fan go super fast (this is normal, has happened since I got the PC) then stop and then the computer does its POST test.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening? Kinda sucks that in order to reboot the computer, it takes 5 minutes from the time I hit the power button to the time I enter my password to log in.

Good efforts so far. Static ip is good, even if it didn't help your problem.

Could be rootkit. They affect startup in various ways.

As far as disabling antivirus/firewall goes, that cannot help. You would need to uninstall it to see if it does.

If you have any Himachi software, uninstall.

If you have any VM software, uninstall to test.

If you have Networx software, uninstall.

I had some hard disk problems with a Fujitsu notebook so ran chkdsk which seemed to clean up the errors.  The system still ran very slowly, so I decided to do a clean install of Windows 7.  I deleted the partitions down to one (700gb) then clicked on "Next".  There was a message about "disk fail" but it started going fine, and the first part of "Installing Windows" went reasonably quickly.
 
But it has been nearly 60 hours stuck on "Completing Installation".  Should it take this long?

A:completing installation taking long time

I believe your hard drive is failing or has failed. You can check it by downloading Seatools for DOS. This is a bootable iso file. You can right click in Windows 7 and select Burn Image File. You may have to enable IDE mode from AHCI if the hard drive is not detected. Run the short generic test.

Hello everybody,

The patient is a Dell Inspiron 9300 Laptop with 512MB Ram, 60GB HD 40% free, Windows Media Center Edition, SP3. When I open "my Computer" it takes almost two minutes to show drives and icons. I have run Combofix and an AVG full scan. It was slightly infected and now clean. Still does it. I've removed all non-essential software, turned off almost all autoruns, done a defrag and a drive C:\ "cleaning" I ran it through CCleaner and Advanced Windows Care. for the most part it's pretty well behaved and operational. Virtual memory is set to 1024/2048. What is that little flashlight working on so hard when I open My Computer?

Thanks,

A:"My Computer" Taking a very long time to open

Open up Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and click on the Processes tab
Click on the View menu item, then on Select columns.
Place a check mark next to I/O Reads and click OK to accept the changes.

Then stretch out the Task Manager window so you can see all the columns.
Double click on the column header (to sort by that column) and then open My Computer and see what processes spike the highest.
You can do this for the I/O Reads column, the Memory column, and the CPU column.

Also, do you have any mapped network drives that no longer exist? That is another reason for a long delay - the system is searching for network resources that no longer exist.

when i hit start->turn off computer, it takes a long time before the options appear to either 'stand by', 'shut down', or 'restart'. i'm not sure what the computer is thinking about for so long, but is there a way to kick its butt into gear?

A:windows taking long time to shutdown

SHUTDOWN WORKS, BUT IT?S REAL SLOW

1. If it appears that Win XP is not shutting down, give it some time. Some users report a minute or longer for shutdown to visibly start. Generally, this is a consequence of software that is running when shutdown is attempted. It also may have something to do with particular hardware. If you experience this problem, be sure to close all running programs before attempting shutdown and see if this solves your problem. If so, then you can determine, by trial and error, which program(s) are involved.


2. Newsgroup correspondent ?Sarah? provided one specific solution for this. In Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services, stop the Nvidia Driver Helper service. (You can also get this by launching SERVICES.MSC from a Run box.) Many other newsgroup participants quickly confirmed that this solved this ?extremely slow shutdown? problem for them (it?s the most successful solution for this problem to date). According to correspondent Gan Ming Teik, downloading and installing the new version 23.11 Nvidia driver also solves this problem.


3. Correspondent Ron Spruell found that disabling the Terminal Services service reduced his shutdown time from over 2 minutes (hanging at the ?Windows is shutting down? screen) to about 10 seconds. To disable Terminal Services, follow the steps in the prior paragraph for launching SERVICES.MSC. Please note that Terminal Services is required in Windows XP for running Remote Assistance, Fast User Switching, and (in XP Pro) Remote Desktop.


4. Correspondent Graeme J.W. Smith reported a more obscure cause of slow shutdown: In Win XP Professional, the Group Policy Editor has a security option to clear the pagefile at system shutdown. The same setting also forces the hibernation file to be wiped at shutdown. These processes take long enough that users may think that shutdown has hung. To change the setting, click Start | Run, type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK. Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options. In the right pane, find ?Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile.? NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant ?roadrunner? reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables ?Clear virtual memory pagefile,? and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.


5. The Gear Software Security Service (GEARSEC.EXE), which enables iTunes for Windows to read and burn CDs, has been reported by many users to cause Windows XP to hang at the ?Windows is shutting down? screen for as long as 20-30 seconds. WORK-AROUND: Stop the service prior to shutdown. One way to to this (suggested by ?Thornburgh?) is to create a batch file with the one line net stop gearsecurity. You can either launch this batch file manually, or (in Win XP Professional) use GPEDIT.MSC) to specify this batch file as the shutdown script (under Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Scripts | Shutdown). Gear Software?s forum has a thread on this issue here. (Tip from correspondent ?Andy?)


6. MS-MVP Gary Thorn discovered that the Event Log can slow down Win XP shutdown. Disabling event logging removed the slowdown. If this works for you, then the real troubleshooting begins: finding out, by trial and error, what item that is being logged is causing the actual slowdown. (In Gary?s case, the Telephony service was causing the problem.) To disable the Event Log, launch the Services console as detailed in No. 2 above, and disable Event Log (right-click on Event Log, click Properties, under Startup Type select ?Disabled?).

First try doing a Clean Boot to see if the same problem happens.
If this problem only happens with Microsoft Office files (xls, word etc) then try repairing office. Go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs scroll down to Microsoft Office and click Change (Remove) this will allow you to add or remove Office products, Repair or Remove Office. Try Repairing Office first. If that fails, and you have and Office CD, try Removing (uninstalling) Office, restart the computer and Reinstall from the CD. You will not loose any Emails or Documents.

Hi there,
 
For the last three or four times that Windows Updates (for Windows 7) have been installed (by automatic updates) my computer seems to be taking longer and longer.
Three hours or more is about the usual amount of time - I don't know how long exactly as I have waited, given up and gone to bed.
The system works in the morning apparently updated - but this seems to be very long.
Is that normal?
Is my system building up to something unpleasant?

A:Installing Updates - Taking Long Time

If your system is using Windows 7 64 bit and you have 2GB of RAM or less, or 1GB on Windows 7 32 bit, then this may be the cause of your slow updates.  Updating can take a lot of resources.
 
For both systems I would recommend that you upgrade to at least 4GB of RAM. You may also want to run a check disk and look for bad sectors on your hard drive. Otherwise Windows will be Windows, remember while using Windows everything runs on Microsoft time :-D

I tried the "IE9 (without add-ons)" from the start menu and it comes up pratically instantly.

I even tried to uninstall stuff from the "Program Files" that I think might be related to IE and it still didn't do anything.

I also removed all search providers and accelertors except Bing because it doesn't let you.

Please offer any suggestions.

I have checked Event Viewer and there are no errors or warnings on startup. I have also run the Windows Memory Diagnostics tool, which found no errors.

Having read many forums on the X99 chipset, people have said that there are still some issue with performance, which need to be ironed out, but having said that, a friend of mine also built exactly the same PC, bar the SSD (Kingston Hyper X), and his boots up virtually without even showing the swirling flag. So... I'm stumped and am hoping someone here can help me out a little?

As an additional comment, it seems to take a lot longer to shutdown than my old PC too.

As you can possibly imagine, having spent a sizable figure on this new PC, compared to my old one, I am a little bothered!

If anyone can help me out, I would be most grateful

Thanks and regards,

Nos.


How do you measure the term "long"? It's subjective and there can be a vast difference between what you may think and someone else thinks. With that being said, what is the time frame for your system to boot and shutdown?

There was a post recently in this forum that it took someone 15 minutes to boot their system, that certainly qualifies as a long time in my book.

Hi, im a computer tech for a company, and one of my customers is calling saying that when he comes in in the morning and moves his mouse it takes 5-10 min before the computer wakes up. We are trying to figure out what the problem is but cannot figure it out. We've checked the power settings and whatnot but that doesnt seem to make any difference. Does anyone know what could be causing it to do this. Also the monitor is relatively new so i dont think thats the issue either. Thanks a lot

You're not giving us any computer specs. That would help.
Also, verify exactly what low power setting the system is in. 'Sleep' can mean different things.
What kind of connection is there for the internet?
Have you check the Event Viewer of related Errors such a DCOM, TCP/IP?

For the last few days, when I try to manually update definitions of MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware, the downloads are taking an agonizingly long time when before they were almost instantaneous. Same when I try to play the games on Lumosity - they seem longer to display. Scans with MSSE, SAS and MWB show nothing suspicious. Anyone aware of any problems with these programs, or is it my computer?

İ would also try to do a scan with this http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/ .Please make sure to disable your antivirus,just before you start the scan,and re-enable it again after the scan is finished.İf anything is found at the end of the scan have it delete them.Before that i would uninstall both MBytes and S.A.Spyware preferably with REVO and doing clean up afterwards with CCLEANER.

İf defragmenting your hdd is needed please do that as well,then reboot.

Let us know the results from the ESET scan and we'll take it from there.

Can you do that for each worksheet and report back each cell reference.

My laptop recently had a pending update for a "new windows 10 feature", I decided to update it by clicking update and shut down. Once doing this the screen said things such as preparing update and installing update.Then a black screen popped up and had a white buffering symbol on the bottom, similar to the startup screen but without the hp logo. Ever since the update, my laptop has stayed on that screen for approximately 30 hours now, with the buffering symbol continuing.Is this normal? Is there any possible way to speed up the process?

Like the title says, I have a windows 7 dell laptop and it takes an extremely long time to startup.

It will either go to a black screen or login, if I get to Login I'll choose the account and it will go to a black screen and eventually turn off after an hour of a black screen.
Repair takes a couple of hours to run and after I restart i go through the first part again.
It claims there is no system restore point although there are def some on the computer.

Its really annoying, and I have no way to start the computer initially. Im doing a Memory diagnostic now, but I dont plan on it working.

Also, I have used a repair disc.

A:Win 7 taking an extremely long time to start up, if at all

Assuming this isn't a hardware problem (bad mobo, cpu, RAM, etc) are you able to get into Safe Mode? From here you should be able to run various repair tools like Startup Repair, System File Checker scan, Clean Boot, etc.

Safe Mode

Startup Repair

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Depending on the specific Dell model, you may also have a hidden recovery partition that can return your machine to factory specs.

Could it be the internals? Maybe something isn't plugged in or connected well, maybe the power supply isn't supplying the PC enough power? Maybe you should upgrade to Windows Vista or 7 since you probably meet the requirements for it? Or maybe your PC is overheated and not getting good airflow?

Either your version of Windows has something corrupt or since your PC was home made, something is going wrong internally...

I installed Kaspersky Internet Security 7 last night. I have 2 questions. Are there any parameters worth turning off? I think it's slowed my computer down just a bit and making some things lag.

Secondly, a full scan started at 5am. It's now 12pm and it's only 56% done with a finish time of 5.30pm today. That's over 12 hours to scan my pc which consists of 2 hardrives, 115GB and 31GB. Isn't 12 hours somewhat excessive? PC Cillin used to scan in much less time. I mean, it's good it's being thorough but I would have hoped it might have been done so I can use the computer.

The term "a long time" is subjective; how long does it take in actual minutes and seconds? You could also try using MSconfig for diagnostic purposes.

It went okay until 27% completed, now it has been on 27% complete for three hours.

This peculiar problem from 4 days, when the machine is logged in, it takes very long time to acquire ip address (though its a static ip).

It gets connected after a while approx 10-15 minutes.

I have reset the winsock. Tried stopping some unwanted services in msconfig, disabled the built-in firewall, uninstalled antivirus (security essentials).
No hopes...
Any workarounds....

Hello,

Click start>run. Type 'cmd' and press enter. In the command prompt type in 'ipconfig /all' and press enter. Paste the results into the thread.

From what you have said it sounds as though it is looking for an IP address and doesnt have a static address assigned.

A:restarting after update is taking extremely long time

Hi,
First, your laptop isn't listed as being Win 10 compatible- please confirm if I've read this correctly.
Lenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade - Lenovo Support (US)

Is your model number correct?

Otherwise you need to provide some history I think, please. Need more to go on.

1. Did your laptop boot normally before upgrading to the November build 1511?
2. What have you just done.. have you just updated (again) to build 1511? If so, why? Please describe the sequence.

E.g.
I did a fresh installation of Windows 10 using my old iso build 10240.
I installed programs x,y.z..
I then updated to build 1511.
My laptop then booted very slowly.

Please give a story.

Basics:
1. Does your laptop boot normally in safe mode?
2. Does your laptop boot normally if you do a clean boot? (Search for 'clean boot Windows 10' if you are not sure how)
3. To confirm your current build number, please
Press the Windows key and R together, and type Winver in the box, and post the build number you see,

I've been having this issue for a little over a month.

I have tried pulling up task manager while it is sitting there just showing the wallpaper, to see if explorer is running but the task manager doesn't come up until right before the desktop loads. Sounds like explorer.exe is somehow not loading as it should.

Hello good Win people I have a friend who refuses to be weaned off AOL and I'm trying to help him troubleshoot a problem he's having My friend has two Win desktop computers one in LA and one in NY he has homes in both cities that I set up for him They are both Dells with GB of RAM Corei processors and Win Ultimate x SP The one in LA is years old about a year older than the one in NY but otherwise they are pretty much identical in terms of time to respond on sign (ugh) incessantly & long taking AOL the software installed on each - same antivirus same version of Office same AOL same everything He syncs documents and contacts calendar between them so it was essential that we set them up to be as identical as possible The trouble is his LA computer seems to take an interminably long time to sign on AND respond to clicking on links In LA amp NY he has TimeWarner Cable Internet with around - mbps speed in both At first I did the typical check for malware etc - using Avast Malwarebytes Ccleaner - but found nothing Then a couple of weeks ago I suggested doing a complete clean install of Windows so that's been done now Formatted the drive installed Win amp updates installed all AOL (ugh) taking incessantly long time to sign on & respond his applications and restored documents etc from backup He was in NY at the time and only just returned a few days ago and is saying that the LA computer STILL takes an incredibly long time to load amp respond to link clicks while his NY computer does not seem to have AOL (ugh) taking incessantly long time to sign on & respond this issue I'm baffled since the software is identical all updates installed on both etc AOL Filing Cabinet has been wiped clean too I am not too familiar with how AOL authentication servers work but at this point I'm wondering if it might be a factor - maybe computers signing on from his specific location in LA are authenticating off a server that's having trouble - but I'm also concerned there may be other factors to consider such as a flaky network adapter Does anyone have a recommendation for other troubleshooting steps to try Maybe I should try adding in an additional Ethernet adapter like a USB one to see if that resolves it or maybe I need to adjust RWIN etc any suggestions

A:AOL (ugh) taking incessantly long time to sign on & respond

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

AOL 9.7 seems to be using Chrome 21. That is an old and very flawed browser. Let's hope that financial transactions are not being completed via that browser. It might be best to let this slowness convince the user to abandon AOL.

Hi. Windows tried to update. It failed. Now it's reverting changes but it's been at it for 30 minutes. It says don't turn off the computer but this is crazy.

Hello all,

I have an old K6-2 500mHZ machine that my parents are using for internet purposes. The primary problem is that when I boot up, it goes thru POST fine and then i get a black screen. i wait for about 5-6 minutes and then it loads into windows. Sometimes when boot up, it goes straight to windoes but 9 times outta 10 it doesnt. I stripped everything down to the vid card, floppy, HD and network card. Even reinstalled windows. I cant seem to fix this. Anyone have any idea what can possibly be wrong? Thanks in adavnce!

We're at 5 1/2 hours and still not finished. 924,000+ items scanned. I had had the trial version of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on for the first 1 1/2 hours of the Defender scan and I turned it off because I thought that might be slowing things.

This is on a Dell Inspiron Mini netbook. Not a huge hard drive here. The RAM has been upgraded from 1Gb to 2Gb, so I don't think that is the problem.

Is this normal? My ESET smart security takes a lot less time and I'm sure it scans a lot more items.

A:Registry Cleaners Taking A Long Time Scanning Vista x64....

Hi Bowen,

First, Welcome to the Forum.

I used Wise registry cleaner for quite awhile now and noticed that this started on mine as well starting with the last updated version they did. I never had this problem with Wise before either. I had to uncheck the Software section option for the scan to complete. This was true even on a fresh install of Vista too. I sent a bug report to Wise on it the other day, but haven't heard anything from them yet. I would keep a eye out on their website for a new update, and perhaps they'll have it fixed then. I would suspect that TweakNow's RegCleaner has a similiar Software option that would need to be unchecked as well.

I would uncheck it and wait for a updated version.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I am using Macrium Reflect Free to create an image of my WD portable hard drive. It has about 1TB worth of files on it. I installed the latest version of Macrium Reflect and used all the default settings to make the backup. It has been 1.5 hours so far and is 7% complete. At this rate it is going to take about 13 hours to complete. Is this normal? It sure seems long to me. I am backing up to a Seagate 2TB portable hard drive.

For some reason my laptop takes forever to connect to a shared drive on my desktop on my home network. I've tried connecting to it by mapping the drive and through windows explorer and same thing. Sometimes it won't even connect at all. I don't have this issue with other computers on the network. And when I say a long time I am meaning like 5 minutes or more. At first it was maybe only 1-2 minutes but it is getting worse. My mouse icon has had the spinning ring around it trying to connect the whole time I have been writing this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Both computers are Win 7 pro x64 with sp1. Desktop is wired directly to the router and laptop has excellent signal strength. Both have DHCP reservations set in the router. The way I usually connect is by starting a run box and typing \\[desktop pc name]\[share] then it just spins for a while.

A:Laptop taking a long time to connect to network share, if at all.

Hello,

From your laptop's Device Manager, locate the network adapter in question, right click on it, choose Advanced Tab, find link Speed and Duplex. Change the Auto Detect to Auto Negotiate 1000 or 100mbps. See if it helps.

Firewall or Security Software might be also interfering.

When I open My Computer via any means it takes about 1 minute for it to display any items in it. In this minute there is no CPU usage or HDD usage which says to me that it isnt the computers hardware to blame. Is there a fix for this because it is getting quite annoying now.

Hi sometimes when I turn on and log onto my computer Internet time load long to times taking at Connection it seems to be taking between and minutes before connecting to the Internet and I was wondering if any of you could help me with this I did use the CleanUp tool yesterday as I thought that might do the trick and it did for a while but then went back to the same state a few hours later Furthermore I also thought that it might be a driver problem and so downloaded and installed DriverMax Upon doing this I noticed about of my drivers were not up-to date However I don't really want to muck around with this tool without supervision and besides I was under the impression that we should only get our divers from out manufacturers website Or perhaps that just means we get the right drivers from out manufacturers website and as for updating that is a different thing altogether and using Internet Connection taking long time to load at times a tool like DriverMax should be fine Anyway if you could help me here I'd be very grateful Thanks

why is it taking a long time for windows load files on my Dell Latitude D520? because I been waiting for over an hour for it to finish and it still only not even half way done yet

A:Why is Windows 7 taking long time to load files on startup

One option in the advanced boot options (F8 at start up) should be "Last Good Configuration", if it is then take that option and it should be the first basic fix to get it to start up. If it starts but does not fully load or still takes too long then try again and take the Safe Mode option and run the three programs under Safe Mode as recommended in reply #4. Save the logs from the results (Copy Paste into Word or other program for now) and reboot into normal mode. Then copy paste the results from those logs into a reply here so they can be reviewed to see if there is more you will need to do.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hi I installed Windows Boot/Shutdown time. randomly taking Windows a long Pro on my new computer self-built the other week It's been running very nicely very very quick Well it all seemed to be working OK Windows Boot/Shutdown randomly taking a long time. at least until a few days ago it randomly started to hang when I was shutting the computer down And it's done it a few times since I'd choose shutdown everything would at first seem to shut down the monitor would lose signal and auto shut off like normal but the keyboard backlights stayed on and the computer was still running There was drive activity during this and eventually after about a minute the computer would finally turn off Not content with failing to shut down properly though it also seems to randomly startup slowly It will POST OK as far as I can tell then starts loading Windows and then it stays black with the mouse cursor visible and moveable for upwards of seconds before the login screen shows up The odd thing about all this is that it doesn't always do it Sometimes it shuts down nice and quick ie when the screen loses signal the computer actually turns off a second or two later And startup is usually quick too from time to turn on to when I get the login screen is less than seconds usually I have an SSD I'd normally attribute this to a driver issue but like I say it was working fine before the other day well I think it was and as far as I'm aware it hasn't had any new Windows or driver updates come through since I initially updated it all after installing the OS Any ideas
