What is the average boot time/average time to reach the login screen of Inspirion 15 5558 Win 10?

Q: What is the average boot time/average time to reach the login screen of Inspirion 15 5558 Win 10?

I have a Inspirion 15 5558,with i7, 8GB ram,1TB HDD,My average To reach the login screen was around 45 secs.
I was facing LCD issues, the technician came over and checked the LCD and pasted some stickers on i it so that it can be repaired later.
I found that its taking more than 4 minutes to reach the login screen.
When i contacted the technician he said it was an OS problem and that i should downgrade to 8 or 8.1
so if everyone can comment about their boot time it would be helpful in determining the problem.

Thank you

Preferred Solution: What is the average boot time/average time to reach the login screen of Inspirion 15 5558 Win 10?

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

" I found that its taking more than 4 minutes to reach the login screen ".

I like to suggest you launch "Startup Repair" in Advanced Startup:

B) Click Advanced Startup, and then " Restart Now "
C) Troubleshoot, Advanced Options, and then Startup Repairs

I also like to suggest you check Startup in Task Manager.Please disable some of the programs that you don't want running in your startup.

I have had windows 8.1 for quite some time now and never had any issues with my OS. Until recently, my OS disc use now shows 100% with writing speeds going up to 100mb/sec and average response times of my HD from 4000 to 8000ms...

Nothing has changed on my side and I have it at a repair shop right now. They said hardware is 100% fine and they are running a stress test on my PC but everything looks good so far. ANy ideas?

A:Disk use 100% and average response time almost 8 seconds

You could try opening the Resource Monitor. Go to the Disk tab, then put a checkmark next to the process using the most disk activity. Then check the window below to see what it is writing or reading.

To be fair, you may see increased disk activity for short periods of time, but it should stop after a while unless something is driving it you may want to stop.

Dear everyone,

I could not seem to get the formula right to calculate time-weighted average for my data. Attached is a sample of my data. I need to get the time-weighted ave for the data B3 to B16. A3 to A16 were corresponding points of time at which each datum was measured. B3 was the baseline.

I think column A cells need to be properly formatted in order to calculate the weighted average, but I don't know how.

Your input will be much appreciated.

I performed an experiment with my wife last night, who I would qualify as a slightly above average computer user. She hasn't yet looked at Windows 8, and she isn't out reading about it, nor trolling forums to see how it works.

I brought home a work laptop with Windows 8 installed on it. I gave her the username and password to log in. I pressed the power button and walked away.

THE RESULTS:

After about 2-3 minutes, I noticed she wasn't doing anything. I asked her if she got logged in and she said, "no, I'm still waiting for it to bring up the log on screen". I told her it was ready about 2:30 minutes ago. She then clicked on the screen, or hit something on the keyboard and got the log on prompt. Her response, well that wasn't intuitive at all.

The "new windows UI" appeared with the tiles, and she said, "What the hell is this...is this the new version of Windows?". I gave her the task of getting calculator running. About 2 minutes later, she said, "I screwed something up. I got to the desktop, but there is nothing here, and I cannot figure out how to get that first screen back". A few minutes later she said, "I got it". I said, "you got calculator running". She said, "No, i got back to that first screen thingie". I asked her how she did it, and she said "um, I don't remember". So, I told her to click back on the desktop and show me. It took about a minute for her to ... Read more

I was able to calculate average time in my original spreadsheet in Excel 2003. However, when I copied data from that spreadsheet to another & attempted to calculate average time it doesn't work! It keeps returning the error code #DIV/0! which I assume is because many of the times I have (they are all in military time) have a zero in the beginning (i.e., 0:01:25). I would just change the time to regular time, but it needs to stay in the military format. Also, the column that the cells are in are formatted as time. What can I do to get past this?

Hi All,
Now i'm working on a windows project and encountered below problem.
Details
System are with 32 Cpus. And for my process "aaa",  i made Cpu affinty on it with CPU0,1.
Then running some script stress on process "aaa".
I record the counter data for process "aaa"'s "%processor time" for about 1 min by every 30/sec
%processor time
190
199
Then i calculate the average Cpu utilization for process "aaa" as (190+199)/2 /2
= 97.25
So i thought the average Cpu utilization for Cpu0 and Cpu1 is about 97.25% (For process "aaa" there was only 2 Cpu System)
But some person in my team said my calculation is wrong and should be (190+199)/2 /
32 = 6.0
6.0 is the total Cpu utilization of process "aaa"
So here is the problem which one is correct?

Thanks for helping on this!
Best Regards

Hi
I have an Acer desktop i3, 6gb 2 years old running Windows 7 home premium.
For the past few months I 've been getting a problem with slow boot time, from the initial black Acer screen to Windows starting to load takes between 3 minutes 20 seconds and 3 minutes 30 seconds. Windows loads immediately afer the login screen. This happens every time. I am also having a problem with screen flicker. If there is any window open, it gives a very quick flicker every so often. This seems to be stopping my screensaver kicking in. I can preview screensaver but it stops every time at 3 minutes 30 seconds. I use SkyGo in full screen, it drops out of full screen after 3 minutes 30 seconds. Same as the boot time. It seems as though one thing is causing all the problems but I don't know what.
I have run every type of repair I can think of and now have used the recovery disks to return to factory settings thinking this might solve the problems. It didn't, boot time just the same, no screensaver etc.
I am totally at a loss now, has anyone any idea what could be causing this? Are there any other checks I can make?
Thanks

Hi everyone,

Before we start, I'm a total noob on this subject, so please be gentle with me.

I've experienced 'very' slow boot times in the given time interval (before it took maybe 10 sec, now it takes 2-3 minutes). After login the machine is ready for usage within 30 sec. I've searched on several forums for what the problem could be and these are the steps which I've taken so far:
* performed defragmentation on the harddrive
* deleted all windows updates and reinstalled them
* look at the event logger, but I couldn't find anything causing mayor and/or reoccuring problems
These things didn't work out for me. I've included the machine's specs in my profile, I hope it suffices.

I frequently am logging in and out of my Windows 8.1 laptop. I have a good, secure password that I use and because I'm human, sometimes I mistype it. The issue is that on these occasions, I am locked out for a good 30 seconds from attempting to
login, even for the second time.

I can understand the time delay if it were say, my 5th or 6th attempt, but for one attempt this is entirely too long. How do I go about significantly reducing this, or ideally removing it?

What temp is that case or CPU? If case then what's the CPU temp? Your CPU temp is fine under 65C while under load (gaming, someother heavy processing workout, i.e Prime95). At idle it should be around 30-35C with air cooling and standard room temp. 65C is getting hot and I wouldn't want mine to get any hotter then that, in fact that's the upper safe limit. You really want it no hotter then mid 50's. (under load)

Hello all!

Some of you may know me. Like my software and WinSxS (I love the way WinSxS all fits together!) but am utterly clueless about the hardware. Please forgive me this question!

I have a DESKTOP PC which is NOT overclocked in any way. It is reasonably powerful (see specs) and is a Dell. However, it is used to the extremes of its ability - regularly.

I would just like to ask you what the temperatures you would consider good, warm, and hot for both the GPU and CPU. I know the GPU can get quite hot, but I would please like to know how hot, so that I can learn.

I have a feeling that mine are quite hot. Most of the time I get:

CPU: 52 degrees Centigrade (C)
GPU: 128 C

These seem awfully hot. Putting my hand on the GPU plastic casing after use makes me think that these are not anomalous!

Thanks so much in advance!

A:At what temperature does an average CPU and GPU become too hot?

Hello Richard, I am not really knowledgeable in this area & can only reflect on my own research so that i can monitor my own temps which basically indicates 70 degrees C and below in both cases as being comfortable temps.

In posts i have read concern is usually expressed in 80c+, your CPU looks fine mine runs at 50-65 & max 72c under heavy load. I use Core temp to monitor which also has overheat protection

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

The tjmax is the CPU manufacturers max temp (assume critical) & safe temps to be 15c-20c below this.

As far as your GPU it looks extremely hot but i do not have a solution for you other than cleaning & extra cooling which i am sure you are already aware of. (my desktop has settings in the BIOS for the fan)

I've been blowing through graphics cards about every 12 months. Even with my new system it's been the same. I do play a lot of graphic intensity games. Could that be the reason for their early demise? The latest casualty is my GTX 560.
 

A:The average life of a GPU

A GPU's lifespan is at least 3-5 years. Hell, if you take care of your components it will last as long as you need it to in most cases. The fact that your GPU's are dieing in a year is strange. If this has indeed happened to all of your GPU's it is safe to say that the operating conditions inside your PC may not be too good. Or, you may just be burning them out? Do you SUPER overclock them or something? What sort of operating temps do you usually get?

A:Average heat on a GPU

That depends on the GPU and the cooling methods used.

If you are looking for comparison figures, it would be helpful if you provided us with the GPU specifications in your machine.

thank you very much
 

A:please help new here CPU running 75c average

75c is way too hot to be near-idling at. Is this the first time you've built a computer? I'm betting you installed the HS/F wrong. You're going to need to take off your HS/F, reapply thermal paste, and install the HS/F correctly.

Sup guys i've recently invested in a desktop PC for my son for him to do some light gaming on.

The specs are:

Pentium D [email protected]
2GB DDR2 @ 667MHz
Nvidia GT220 1GB DDR3
160GB 7200RPM

He'll be playing things like World Of Warcraft, Garrys Mod etc, nothing too straining... Will this computer run those games fine?

Thanks
 

A:Average gaming rig?

Well first I want to ask, how much did you pay for it? Passed that I'll say he should be able to play on low to medium settings with okay frame rates.

Hi all! Would you all please tell me what is the temperature range that your P50 or P70 typically operates at?   It would also be great if you could measure it under average office use, internet browsing, plus maybe picture/video editing or low-to-mid-level gaming (if you do those sorts of things).  Also, to circumvent potential confusion, please denote what machine you have and in what scale you are getting these temp readings.

Just recently moved to a new apartment and had to ditch my dsl for cable. I got the highest service available which was 1536kb/512kb. Now when I do the bandwidth tests on websites I can only get anywhere between 150-200kbps. I had a tech com over here and hook it up correctly, or so it seemed, because it was going very slow to start with. He showed me it was working by downloading a 100mb file and the transfer rate was hitting from 150-250 KB. Just wondering why it is that the internet seems soooo utterly slow but most of the downloads are realitively fast. Maybe I am misunderstanding some term or something but I know this cable line should be higher on the BW tests than 150-200 kbps! I have tried 8 seperate tests to check and all were about the same.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Hello,
Whats the best PSU to get? I had a 300W one and changed last week for a 450 Low Noise PSU. I know I wont need 450W and it will probubly do me no differernce but is it worth having that extra bit more? I was going to get the 600W one but it was faulty, so I had to take it back and get the 450W one. I think 300W is plenty, What you guys think?

It depends on your system specs. Can you give us your full system specs?

I did a search and found 2 similar named threads, but neither seemed to pretain, so, I'm starting a new thread.

I'm a computer consultant, but I've run into an interesting situation. I have a WinXP Pro system 3.4ghz LGA processor 1 gig of DDR400 ram, 2 100+ gig HDs, a CD Burner, and a DVD/CD Reader, Nvidia GeForce 5700LE (256) video, SP2, and all latest updates installed.

Many programs installed. I've got Norton AV Corporate 8, AVG Free 7.0.323, Spybot 1.4, Adaware 1.06r1, Spyware Blaster 3.4, with all the lastest updates. Adaware found 7 tracking cookies, Spybot says I'm clean, Blaster is updated with no errors/problems. AVG and Norton run daily and show no virii.

What is occuring is when I leave my system sit with any program running either in the background or foreground, for 20 minutes or more, the system will bog down. When I check the Task Manager, it shows Explorer.exe floating between 48-50%, with memory jumping around. 160,000 - 280,000K, thought it was climbing but watched it and it keeps fluctuating. System.exe is showing 30-40%. It doesn't matter what program I may leave running, from WinMX to MS Word 2003.

The only way to clear it is to log out. I don't have to reboot, just log out of the shell. Logging back in and the system runs great. Now, if I have say WinMX going, typing a report in Word, have IE going doing a search... moving around the system, active, the system seems to run fine, I don't notice any slow-down, but if I leav...

Think I would try an online virus scan to make sure Norton and AVG have not missed something. I would also try Mirosoft Anti Spyware.

There are indexing programs that run to index the hard drive when it thinks the system is idle. Microsoft Office comes with find fast. Some of the desktop search programs use this also. Check msconfig for these programs and uncheck them.
