Q: windows 10 extremely slow boot since install (wake time & ap...

Wednesday I installed Windows 10, upgrading from 8.1 & have had unacceptable boot & sleep wake times (7-12 minutes) and application not responding errors since. The only odd part of the install was AMD video updates, which I have backed out & reinstalled but no impact. I searched for fixes and tried microsoft fixes like cleanmgr, msconfig & services.msc to remove unneeded items in hopes of improving boot time. In device manager I tried removing devices to have them reset themselves. Nothing is working. I recorded the time for bootup taking about 2 minutes from black screen to windows symbol with circle, then black screen for 3 minutes before 'please wait message', after signon taking 4 or more minutes to be able to access start menu or run program. Full boot time is 10+ minutes - WOW, so frustrating I leave the room! Here are my system specs: HP Pavilion dv7 NotebookProduct number A6W99UA#ABAIntel Core i5-2450M CPU 2.50GHzSystem board 1800 10.5ABIOS F.1C16gb RAMDisplay - AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series 15.200.1062.1002 (7/15/2015) & Intel HD Graphics 3000 9.17.10.4229 (5/27/2015)Toshiba MK7575GSX hard drive 672GBOptical disk HP BD DS6E2LH FH62 I like the new interface with Windows 10 but am frustrated with not having reliable system since upgrade (note a desktop and net book I upgraded from 8.1 are both behaving normally - so I do believe this is system specific).

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.)

Hi all,
So I have an old Gateway desktop that nobody uses anymore so i thought i would install ubuntu on it. I wiped the hard drive and installed the latest ubuntu and all was fine and dandy. But i got tired of the lack of support linux has for many Windows-only programs so i decided to switch back. I made a bootable flash drive with windows 7 home premium x64 on it, and went through the install process. Everything worked fine, but one day the computer took 15 minutes to boot up (it was hanging on the "welcome" screen) and was INCREDIBLY slow to use once it booted. Of course I tried to reboot and i even rebooted into safe mode but the result was the same. Since i didnt really have anything important on the computer i just decided to wipe it again and reinstall windows. I went through the install process, but when i got to the screen that says "windows setup is preparing your computer for first use" it hangs and ive given it hours but it does not change. I thought maybe my hard drive might have gone kaputz, but when i wiped the drive YET AGAIN and installed ubuntu, it ran normally with my normal boot time of around 45 seconds or so. Is it a problem with windows only then? It doesnt seem to be the hard drive but does anyone have some insight as to why this is happening? I really want to get windows back on there and have it usuable so any help that you can give would be great. I apologize if i am not clear on something I am somewhat experienced with OS's b...

Ok so I attempted to install Windows again and this time I continued to wait and I got to the desktop finally. But now the desktop is very unresponsive. It took maybe 20 seconds for the start menu to open when I clicked on it, and control panel seems to be taking over a minute to open. I will have a look at the bios and see if anything is amiss but I really am lost.

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

*bangs head on table*

Well, now that that's out of the way. I got this laptop(Compaq Presario V2000 running WindowsXP) a few weeks ago (used) because my fiance decided she wanted a newer one. She warned me that it had problems, but no big deal because I can clean it up and whatnot. I fixed most of the small problems that it had here and there but the other day I installed Uniblue Registrybooster. Never got it to ran and seemed to slow the computer down to a crawl. So I uninstalled it, cleared out all the registry entries pertaining to the program and rebooted........to my horror the computer STILL booted up extremely slow (about 5 minutes compared to it's previous 1 minute) So I've been through msconfig, service manager, these forums....everything I can think of. I DID change my primary IDE from DMA to ULTRADMA like one Mod suggested and that actually helped a bit. (dropped the bootup time from 5 min down to about 3 min) But to me there still seems to be something wrong and for the life of me I just can't figure it out. I also noticed that when windows starts up the taskbar is just a solid blue for about 30-45 seconds (i know, this doesn't sound long but as you all know in the computer world this is FOREVER lol) I was hoping that someone could take a look at my HJT log and see if there's something obvious that I'm just completely missing.

And the hard drive is always clicking. It sounds like its working very hard, and then it just gives up. Sometimes it freezes while I'm working. Other times, I'm done and want to turn it off, and it will not turn off. Ctl-Alt-Delete does not help. I have to turn off the power to unfreeze it. I know that is a bad thing to do, but its the only way I can get it going again.

And then it takes forever to get going again. And each task I want it to perform takes so long. I click and nothing happens. So I click again. Maybe I get it mixed up from extra clicking to get it to do something, so it freezes. If I wait... eventually it does what I want it to do. But clearly, things are not right. I definitely know there are way too many unnecessary things that load at start-up.

I run SpyBot, Ad-Aware, Registry Mechanic, and SpySweeper every day, and they always find stuff, but that doesn't solve the problem. I ran HijackThis and for 2 hrs I painstakingly went through every item, checking on forums and tech sites to see what was good and what was bad, figuring I could eliminate the bad things on my own. But then the system froze and I lost every thing I had checked when I had to reboot (by turning off the power.) I am not going to do that again! It'll be a much better use of my time to let you evaluate the log!

A:My system takes a long time to boot up, is extremely slow and freezes frequently

When I leave the computer on overnight, which I very often do, when I come back in the morning my sound codecs are gone. No sound device can be detected whatsoever. But device manager says all hardware is working properly. Neither disabling and re-enabling nor uninstalling and reinstalling help. Still no sound. If I reboot, it starts up again with sound intact.

I was also having a problem for awhile where the .wav volume kept turning itself off. I'd turn it back up and within an hour or so, it would be off again. So definitely overnight .wav would have the volume all the way down. So I couldn't tell the two problems apart at first. But I updated the driver on the Realtek '97 and I didn't have the problem with the .wav volume any more. Though every morning the sound is nowhere to be found.

Many settings reset themselves. Silly ones. On MSN Premium I have several different email addresses, and each one has a different display picture that I've chosen.

About 2 weeks ago I decided to bite the bullet and update my desktop from XP to 7. I did a complete reinstall after formatting my HDD. After the pretty quick and painless install the computer was taking a ridiculously long time to boot up, in excess of 20 minutes. I've read up on other threads that recommended that I do a reinstall of windows and upgrade my RAM. After 6 or so re-installs and upgrading my RAM to 4Gbs (The most I can do considering my x86 processor) the problem persists. After the Win7 loading screen the entire screen just goes black, no blinking underscore in the top left or anything like that, but the screen is still on and backlit. There's no cursor and the keyboard doesn't even respond to the NumLock button being pressed. I then have to wait for the PC to go into hibernate/sleep, when I press the power button after that to wake it up again the login screen is there like nothing was ever wrong.

Well, I guess I'll just jump right into this. As the title says, I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 (deleted all my hard drive partitions, including the system reserved one, reformatted and then installed Win7) and since then I've been noticing some strange issues that I did not experience before.

The first issue I noticed is that my performance is slightly slower than it was before. Programs take much longer to load, almost a minute just for Google Chrome or Skype (version 4, not 5.5 which has a giant memory leak), which before would load in the blink of an eye. Even opening My Documents (which is practically empty right now save for a few small .txt files) or My Computer takes the same amount of time. When I'm using Paint Tool SAI, a small and compact art program, my strokes will sometimes take almost 30 seconds to appear. Needless to say, as an artist, this is extremely inconvenient and annoying, even though it's only a couple seconds. Even with Adobe Photoshop CS5, Skype, Google Chrome, DAZ Studio 4, and Paint Tool SAI running all at once, with my virus protection on in the background, my physical memory usage tops out at only about 70% and my CPU stays pretty low, and I don't get any increased slow-down. It just runs the same as before, with the occasional halt in the middle of doing something, or my words having to "catch up" as I type them.

The time it takes for Windows to boot is also very concerning. From restarting or turning on the computer... Read more

This is Windows 8.1. When I wake my computer from sleep, regardless of how long the computer has been sleeping, it takes 10-15 minutes to complete the process. It takes about a minute or so for the lock screen to show up. When it does appear, everything seems to be working but I click on the lock screen to reveal the password entry and a grey screen emerges but no password box or profile photo. Its as if the password box and photo are just missing on the page. So as I wait for the password box to appear, the lock screen will eventually return. I have to keep clicking on the lock screen to see if the password box has appeared.

Sometimes instead of the grey screen, the loading circle of dots animation is displayed but still behind the lock screen as above.

I just got a brand new XPS 8910 with i7 6th gen 3.4ghz, 16gb ram desktop. I have been using a XPS 8500 desktop for 5+ years and have been thoroughly happy with its performance so far. I used a SSD with it for fast boot and general performance boost. I did the same thing with the new XPS and put a Sandisk Ultra II 240gb on it and installed Windows 10 there.

The factory boot time was 37 seconds from a cold boot (post through the login screen).
With the SSD and legacy boot (non UEFI) the boot time is 45 seconds.

My old XPS booted in 15 seconds.

A 5+ year newer machine boots 30 seconds slower. What am I missing.

I need a resolution soon or this is going back.

I just responded to yor other post regarding sound issue... so you have more than one problem... Hmmmm.

A few questions to help us help you...Where did you get your copy of 7 Ultimate?
Was Win7 performing updates? (Usually after a new install Win7 will DL and install all updates... most often takes 2-4 updates to catch all of them... this can cause the slow startup you are speaking of... the system may still be installing updates.)
Can you post a screenshot of Device Manager please?

A very complicated turn of events lead to this issue, so I will try to explain it as easily as possible while still giving the necessary details.

Towards the end of last year I bought an Alienware r2 that came stock with a 1 TB 7200 RPM HDD with Windows 8.1 installed on it. Not wanting the slow HDD and having a personal hatred for Windows 8, I purchased a 1 TB Samsung 850 Evo SSD and a copy of Windows 7 Pro. I installed the Evo in my rig followed by installing 7 pro onto the Evo. After a few months I installed the free upgrade to Windows 10.

Fast forward to today. My r2 was having an issue where I was losing core voltage to my CPU causing my games to run like garbage. Try as they might, Dell tech support could not fix the issue and decided to send me a refurbished r3 as a replacement. The r3 came stock with a 256 GB M.2 SSD and a 1 TB HDD with a copy of Windows 10 Home installed on the HDD. This is where it gets a little complicated.

Following my first instinct I cloned Windows Home onto the much faster M.2 SSD, leaving me with 2 bootable drives harboring the same copy of Windows. It went as planned, my computer booted from the M.2 so I then reformatted the 1 TB HDD.

My plan from here was to install my Evo as a backup drive. I wanted to have Windows and my games on my M.2 and have everything else on the Evo. That plan soon changed.

I came to the conclusion that my Steam library was too large for 256 GB, so my new plan was to use my Evo as the OS and everything else ... Read more

Hi,

I noticed that when I booted into clean boot to solve a issue with a game that seems to have solved itself I just wanted to do other stuff and the PC felt like worm or a snail, it was depressing to see that it took Paint 5 minutes to launch and I also noted that I got an error when pressing ctrl+alt+del, I tried to take a screenshot of it and paste it into Paint so that I could upload it here but it seems that the shot was never taken.

But I'm baffled that it would take so long for Windows to respond, I thought the computer would run smoother during Clean Boot, and then of course after mashing in ctrl+alt+del (I know you shouldn't but there is a beast within) for a minute, nothing happened for like 4 minutes, screen goes black/dark blueish color and stays that way for like 5-10 minutes and then there is an error with something like that "the security options available from the ctrl+alt+del menu aren't available and if Windows wont stat to respond press esc for it to reboot".

Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

After W7 was completely installed, in which order did you install the drives and other software?

At which point did you notice computer slowness?

When did you download the W7 updates? With a slow download speed, I would think that such a large file download would be time consuming.

Internet speed depends upon not only your system but the server load of your ISP [ excelelnt that you checked with them ] and the servers you are trying to access.

Test your up & down speed at a 3rd party site such as www.dslreports.com/speedtest. There are multiple other sites.

No offense intended: I've read that a significant %age of shared files are infected. Which anti malware scans have you performed. I am not authorized by Tech Guy Forum to advise any; the forum has specially trained members for that.

Thanks for posting the system info.

OS: Windows XP SP-2
File System: NTFS
Mobo Driver: Forceware 6.86

The 40GB drive was configured as the System Drive & a 20GB Partition on the 250GB drive was configured as Boot Drive (Win XP SP2)

The load times were typically about 18 seconds (Win XP Boot Screen Only)

Then I purchased & Installed a Seagate 500GB SATA II Drive - ST3500630SV.

Since then the Boot times have increased to around 1min 20 secs (WinXP Boot Screen Only). After booting All applications work at normal speed without slowdowns.

Since then I have tried the following options:

1. Formatted both the Old drives. Disconnected them both & installed fresh Win XP on the 500GB drive (20GB Partition).

Result: As long as the other SATA drive (250GB) is not connected the boot times are down to 10 Seconds. On attaching the other SATA drive Boot times again increase to around 1 min 10 secs.

Hello there,

I will try to analyze and give all the info I have so far on my situation.
The problem started 3 days ago when I was playing World of Warcraft and I was alt-tabing (nothing special, just ordinary stuff). After a load screen, where the game normally starts loading stuff, the alt-tabing was inresponsive and while I was in desktop, clicking WoW icon had no effect, like I wasn't clicking it. Soon I realized Firefox wasn't working as intended, so I pressed the reset button on my case. The pc gave me an error that, if i remember correctly, was that no boot device found. I played a little with plugging-unplugging my USB devices and the problem fixed after about 10 minutes. All good since yesterday afternoon.
So yesterday I got the exact same problem while I was playing an another game, but still at loading screen. The computer boots (from zero) very slow, even getting to "Starting Windows" screen takes a minute, and until I see the windows icon (the one about the SW text) 15 minutes pass. I left home and left the pc at that icon, and when I was back it was at login screen (weird because I only have 1 account without password so I don't ever get there). I pressed my account icon and after around 10 seconds (notice the time for just pressing a button) I got the "Welcome" screen, with the circle moving smoothly. I tried to use my Windows installation disc to find a boot problem, however it takes for ever to find a problem. Also tried booting in saf... Read more

So this has been an issue since i built this PC months ago, 6700k, 1080TI, decent enough rig. the OS is on an SSD but most if not all of my games are on my HDD.
Games like FF14, The battle.Net Launcher and some games on steam take over a minute to just launch...
Nioh on Steam can take 30 seconds just to bring the launcher up, and Final Fantasy 14 can take the same amount of time to boot up past the Login Launcher.
I have no idea why it is doing this...and the strange thing is, a reboot of the PC generally fixes the issue almost immediatly. But its so random. Sometimes they take forever to load, reboot computer, then it works again.
I tried disabling superfetch and windows search from the services menu and everything was running smooth for like...2 weeks i wanna say, then it just started happening again so im going to assume i was just getting really lucky for those 2 weeks.
Sorry for the long winded, poorly constructed post, but some help and solutions would be very appreciated.

Two different internal SSD drives pass hardware tests, but attempts to re-install Windows on them fail during the initial disk partitioning and formatting options, with a low-level error and a very long delay. The particular machine type model is 20CDCT01WW, the initial OS was Windows 8 Pro, later updated to Windows 10, and it's now out of warranty. It crashed one day during normal use, not near the time of any major hardware or software changes, and hung during re-booting. Attempts to recover the Windows installation failed, so we tried re-installing Windows from external media, and this process took far too long (running overnight, before finally failing with low-level error messages).

Hello. I am experiencing extremely slow respone time when running IE (and generally slower than normal response time on other apps). Ihave IE6.0, running on a Win98 based Dell system (Pentium 3 with 384MG of ram, and over 5gb of hard drive available). I don't believe I have any viruses. When opening IE, it takes about a minute, and it seems to slow down all other apps as well. I do load up the Yahoo Companion toolbar, but I do as well on other computers without any perceptible impact on response time.

Hello Guys, I'm a proud supporter of my favorite tech website (yes, I'm brown nosing for brownie points). You guys successfully and painlessly helped me with a previous ISM problem, I'm hoping you guys can help me again.

I'm on my dad's computer and it is extremely slow. I ran a virus check and defragmented his hard drive and there is no apparent reason for the computer to be so sluggish. I ran a hijack file which I will paste below.

My dad has a Dell Desktop computer that is a few years old. He connects to the internet with Verizon DSL. I'm able to log onto his connection with my laptop (never at the same time) without any problems. His computer always says that it is not fully protect (he uses McAfee), but everytime we try to fix it, we are sent into circles by tech support.

I don't know what other information you require but I will be more than happy to update later on. Please review and assist if you can. I appreciate your assistance.

Hello TechGuy Members,

I've got a relatively new problem with my laptop running Vista Ultimate 32 Bit version. Basically it boots up normally until it gets to the fancy blue screen, then the animated circle spins for anywhere b/w 2 to 5 mins before I can enter my password and login to Windows. It used to take just a couple of seconds.

The problem started about 2 weeks ago and I can't trace it to any particular software or update. I've even tried using system restore and going back as far as two months. But it still gets stuck.

Any help would be much obliged.
 

A:EXTREMELY Slow Bootup Time

System Restores usually fix most problems not hardware related -- but certain User Profle/Account configurations are not reset by them.

If you create or enable another User Account, do you still get the problem? You could just enable the Guest account for a test.

How about in a "Clean Boot" >>

Is everything normal once you reach the desktop? Programs not slow to load?

I have a fairly new (6 months) HP Pavilion DV3 which runs Vista Home Premium 64. For the last few weeks, at startup it goes to a screen that gives options "Launch startup repair (recommended)" or "Start Windows normally". The repair option will proceed to a screen "Your computer was unable to start - Startup repair is checking your system for problems - attempting repairs" and after several minutes "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically". If I pick "Start Windows normally" it will show a progress bar for a while, then the screen will go black and after 15 minutes it will go to Logon screen. From there on Windows will run as usual.

At the suggestion of HP customer service, I have disabled all items in Startup menu, done BIOS flash and updated chipset driver. None of these has improved the boot time. If anybody here could help me out with this I would be grateful. Thx,

Hello. this is my first post here, but I'm trying to salvage my computer without having to spend any money. So here is my problem...

About a week ago my computer started making a loud (repeating) popping noise through the speakers (along with the lights on my audio interface blinking on and off with the popping noises) when I would shut it down. That mixed with my computer running pretty badly, I figured I would just do a clean install of winXP and see what that would do. So once the computer started rebooting during the setup of windows, it would freeze up for very long amounts of time (15+ minutes). I tried starting over again and that didn't fix it. Now that I have windows up and running, if I restart windows...it literally takes close to 20 minutes to get back into windows. It goes like this. The first screen that comes up with the processor information freezes up for about 2 minutes, and then it runs through everything till right before going to the login screen. The screen then goes black and sits like that for 15+ minutes before finally going into windows. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to fix this or what might be wrong?

Here's a quick rundown of my system: I am using Intel's DG965wh, with their q6700 Processor, the WD 160gb hd Sata running as AHCI. BFG 8800 GTX video card. 4 x 2gb PNY DDR 667 ram. Creative X-FI Xtreme Gamer Soundcard. Antec 650w Power Supply. Vista X64 Ultimate. WD 250gb EIDE for storage.

Here's a rundown of my problem: This started around midway in December, before I did any upgrades to my system (upgraded to the 8gb of ram and the q6700.) It has persisted even AFTER a full reinstall of Vista. So, I am desperate for some help here.

My machine posts fine, and once it gets into Vista itself, it runs beautifully. In the interim, that's the problem. After it posts, and Vista is "loading" with that green bar going across the screen? I'm looking at roughly 4-5 minutes, sometimes even more. This is driving me crazy, as those boot-times are just ridiculous.

But as I said, when I get into Vista itself, no problem. Everything is speedy. Even ran PC-Check on my system, in which there were no failures in the motherboard, the ram, the hard drives, or anything.

So if anyone has any ideas, I'd greatly love to hear them. So far, the only thing I've found in my research is to try a different power supply unit.

A week ago my pc simply stopped responding while running, and before that moment, there was no indication that anything was wrong. CAD did not respond so the pc was turned off manually and rebooted. It would not load at all. After a few attempts I was finally able to get it to come up in safe mode and attempted a chkdsk which found some errors, then ran chkdsk /f and /r and was finally able to boot up the computer, but the process takes literally 15 minutes.

I've been trying the different troubleshooting suggestions I found at: "10 Things You Can Do When Windows XP Won't Boot Up".

I tried bootcfg /rebuild but was scared off of that when prompted to answer some questions after the initial command.

I also tried fixmbr \Device\HardDisk0 but came to a point that I received a message saying that "an invalid or nonstandard partition table signature was detected. If you are not having problems accessing your drives, you should not continue. Writing a new master boot record to your system partition could damage your partition tables and cause your partitions to become inaccessible" which also scared me off so I didn't continue.

I did reinstall Windows XP overtop the other installation, but have yet to reinstall SP2. (I figured why go through the trouble when there is still a boot up problem and I don't want to have to go through this all over again! LOL)

I have run spyware scans, virus scans and everything is coming up clean.

A:Boot Takes Extremely Long Time

Hello all, it takes about 5 min for my comp to boot up. This started when I manually removed a DVD via the tiny release hole. I checked my BIOS to make sure boot sequence has the HDD as the primary boot source. Did a full virus and malware scan to no avail. I was curious if any body has any ideas on how I can get my boot speed back. I would rather not set boot speed to fast in BIOS- not sure if this would solve problem and haven't tried. All progs work normally. I have win 8.1 64 bit version and haven't upgraded any service packs yet- been waiting to clear any initial bugs. I have updated BIOS and other hardware and had no problems. Problem started when I manually removed the DVD- arg. Any suggestions and or help would be greatly appreciated.

Comp- Toshiba C55-A5310
Sys- Win 8.1 64bit, 6Gb RAM, Intel i3

A:Extremely long time to boot comp with win 8.1

Truthfully those updates you are avoiding could be helpful as they are fixing issues within 8.1 also.
Just received this PC with Windows 8.1 ? Or put it on PC ?

Slow boot are also due to too many startup items starting up also when computer is booting. Some AV use a lot when PC boots check settings in Anti-virus for Boot time protection. Sound strange that a stuck DVD would cause this to happen.

Check Task Manager in startup tab, tell you also level of each startup, high, low. If can eliminate some see if it helps.
Use Disk Cleanup. Try checking disk for errors, not sure if you installed 8.1 on this PC or came with it.

Hey guys, My battery does not charge as fast as before and it drains the battery way too fast. All of this happened pretty much over night. I calibrated the laptop one time but I didn't experience the slow charge after that. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that would make the battery wear out that fast.

basically when I startup or reboot the computer it takes around 5-10 minutes just to get to the windows loading screen. It seems like everything shows up really slow starting with the emchines splash screen, loading Realtek boot agent, boot from ACPI CDRom, followed by a bunch of white loading progress bars, which just hangs there for ages. once it gets to the windows loading screen it resumes normal speed and everything seems fine from there.

....this pretty much sums it up. I did a scan disk, installed a new virus protection (avast), ccleaner, ran new scans and nothing seems to work. Before I resort to the likely inevitable solution (restoring back to factory settings), anyone want to try and see if we can fix this without having to wipe out the hard drive?
