    Very slow Win 7 Boot up. Help!

    Hi guys,

    I just upgraded my cpu to Q8200 from E8400..The booting up time of win 7 is still very slow. Around 2 minutes(recorded by BootRacer) with everything disabled from start up (ie. Antivirus and so on).

    After POST, the boot up process just stucked at the animated windows 7 boot up GUI for like 1+ min.

    I tried uninstalling all unnecessary programs, disabled all programs from starting up with windows, defragmenting the harddisk and now even formatted the whole harddisk. But seems like it's the same. It could not be the registry problem, because I just formatted the comp.

    I own another Q6600 rig, and it just takes less than 1 min to boot up. Any idea?
    What is the possible reason behind this ya?

    scan hdd and see if it's failing/has bad sectors. could also be spped of hdd itself slower than that of the one in the q6600 rig.
    speed of bootup now affected by hdd. (if u go ssd, u will understand)
    Need a specially built PC rig that gives the most performance for a given budget? Looking for the fastest and cheapest options to repair up or upgrade ur PC rig or laptop? Look no further!

    the Hdd is 7200rpm hitachi 500gb..My another Q6600 rig has the same hdd. Just that this is Q8200 rig is a MITX rig, has 4gb of ram.

    How to scan for bad sector ya? I own a ssd in my 2600k rig..but don really think that the hdd can be the true culprit because q6600 rig has the same hdd..

    Any other cause?

    What did you mean by card? Gfx? If gfx, then no gfx on my rig, using integrated onboard intel vga

    you can make use of windows event viewer to find out what is causing the slow startup.
    you can check this out on how to use...

    i dont know why u think q8200 is an upgrade from e8400

    Gaming CPU Hierarchy Chart : Best Gaming CPUs For The Money: April 2012

    the e8400 has much more cache and clock speed that still wins the q8200's core advantage.
    perhaps u could put back the E8400 and try again? lol

    on a serious note, maybe it's time to go for ssd!

    I think it more related to driver since its stuck at the GUI for quite some time.
    Take a sequential approach.
    Try reinstall from fresh, without updating any of your mobo,gpu drivers, see how fast it boots up to the desktop, then install one driver at a time eg chipset first. Then reboot and see.
    This might tell you which of the package driver is the culprit.
    Then go to vendor site to get the latest driver supporting your win7 32/64 ver.

    Take a look at this benchmark PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End
    Why do the benchmarks differ from each other one?lol...
    So which one should I trust?

    But after fresh installation, windows 7 is smart enough to install all the drivers for me. Can you guide me how to do sequential installation of drivers please? Thank you

    After fresh install, with microsoft drivers, you don't load in any vendor drivers, did it boot slow?

    Before you upgrade CPU, running on E8400, is it on win7? How is the bootup?

    Ya, it was on Win 7. The bootup is also slow. That's why i bought a Q8200 hoping that it will change. But seems like no luck =.=

    chances that your hard disk is going up lorry? which hard disk are you using? do some memtest, gpu burn meanwhile.

    Its not actually luck.
    Its a wrong expectation.
    Upgrading from 2 core to 4 core will not give you any noticable bootup difference. Bootup is not stressful to CPU.
    Basically bootup is load from drive and memory swapping.
