HP Pavilion 550 slow to boot and wake up

Q: HP Pavilion 550 slow to boot and wake up

I have just purchased an HP Pavilion desktop from Currys to replace my old desktop running Windows Vista. Although faster than my old desktop to boot up, it performs miserably when compared to my HP Envy notebook. When left for a while it takes 90 seconds to wake up when my HP Envy and the old Vista desktop are instant. Comparing with the HP Envy, both are running the same version of Windows 10 and have the same memory. The only difference is the processor. The Envy has an Intel 2.60 GHz and the Pavilion has an AMD 3.6 GHz. Both have had McAfee disabled and the only different software running is my email client, Windows Live Mail on the Envy and Mozilla Thunderbird on the Pavilion. On initial power up the Envy shows the welcome screen in 3 seconds, the Pavilion takes 90 seconds. Wake up from sleep mode is instant on the Envy but 90 seconds on the Pavilion (but only 4 seconds if it has 'just' gone to sleep). I expected similar performance so I am dissappointed with the Pavilion. Does anyone else experience this slow response? Are there any settings I can adjust? Could it be Mozilla Thunderbird? Any comments or ideas will be most welcome,Thanks.

Preferred Solution: HP Pavilion 550 slow to boot and wake up

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.)


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 (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). ANY IDEAS?

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.

Hi, Recently purchased an SSD for my slow laptop, I installed Windows 8.1 back on it okay and everything works perfectly (Much more responsive) However, the boot time is troubling me,  my sister and Dad's laptops have SSD's and they boot within 5 seconds and mine takes about 30!  I have disabled everything in startup and till the problem persists, it takes as long to start up as it did with the original 5400RPM drive. I have now put that in my optical drive bay as storage. Any solutions?

I am trying to help someone with an HP Pavilion 17 laptop with an AMD A8-6410 2 GHz processor, 6 GB RAM, Windows 8.1 version 6.3.9600 Build 9600, 64 bit.

There are 3 problems, the most vexing is extremely slow boot time. The computer has AVG and Malwarebytes (both up to date) and neither of the scans has found any malware. I uninstalled several programs that thought might be the source of the problem, but they weren't. I checked the Startup and disabled several programs that I thought might be the source of the problem, but they weren't.

I then searched the internet for some answers, but it turns out there are a multitude of possibilities (most of what I found on the internet mentioned malware, slow programs, too many startup programs). I searched this forum, but I did not find anything that I could determine is relevant.

Does anyone have any ideas?

The other 2 problems may or may not be related.

1. When starting up, either from power off or a restart, the the boot menu options (F12 or Esc) are not displayed.

2. Also, we cannot get to "Change PC settings." When I click on that in the right panel, an icon is placed on the taskbar, but when I click on it, it just flashes on the screen but nothing happens. I also tried accessing settings using the search field and clicking on the result, but that doesn't work either.

So far, what I have found in searches does not appear to address these specific issues, so I would appreciate any ideas.

Thank you.... Read more

Hi there, I have a HP Pavilion 15 Notebook x64, i5, 2 Cores. It was working fine, until a couples weeks ago... update from Window 10 and did realized that my fan was overrunning, loud and laptop was getting hot.  So did some research and found that that some updates by HP might be needed.  I have always had my system automatically for updates, but did the HP assistance with what updates would be needed.  One of them was the BIOS.  I did all the update listed for my laptop... follow the directives as per the HP website. Since then... my laptop fan has become quiet.  Which is awesome.  But there is another problem that arised.If I leave my laptop unattended for a few mins or  close the lid, it will go to sleep mode, which is what I want but will not wake up from the sleep mode.  The power light is on... the internet light will show orange... I try all the options/ suggestions thought the websites (HP and elsewhere) as to how to wake up the laptop from sleep mode.  Nothing works. I did the trouble shooting with windows, with HP... still the same problem. Right now my only choice is to do a hard shut down and restart the laptop each time.  It is becoming very annoying.  I have read your website... follow the directions and still the problem did not go away.  I have turned off any window updates for now... have my display to go to sleep if unattended or lid close... still the same problem exi...

My PC is fairly new and I'm having problems with slow shutdowns/restarts and slow sleep/wakes. Recently it seems to fail waking altogether and restarts after a while instead. Usually during waking I just have a black screen for a long time before the reset/restart but sometimes I see the Windows log-in screen but it's unresponsive.
The problem predates my CPU undervolting and doesn't seem to change when I switch RAM settings back to Auto instead of XMP (I my RAM necessitates some kind of overclock in order to function at its rated speed).

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

I have two HP Pavilion model a345w computers here with 2.6GHz P4 processors, 512 Megs of DDR RAM and 80-Gigabyte Barracuda hard disks. These are both identical, stock factory systems.

According to the owner: They will suddenly display "going to sleep" at odd times, sometimes several times a day and sometimes not even once in an entire work day. It will happen in the middle of typing a document or browsing the internet and totally without warning.

To be clear, this happens while it is being used; this is not happening just after periods of inactivity.

I have turned off everything that has to do with power management and a BIOS update available from HP has not helped.

I did a destructive system restore and the problem returned. As I type this one is in sleep mode and will not wake up without a manual powering down first. The other machine has already started going to sleep in the middle of typing a document.

I have inspected the capacitors and all seem to be in perfect condition--none swollen, none bleeding.

I've about decided these are defects from the factory since they are identical computers and have identical problems (and both are out of warranty).

Any suggestions?

I am not sure if this is the right board to post this question in, but I am having the same issue with two HP Pavilion 13-a113cl laptops that are running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). The issue has to do with waking the machines from sleep using the keyboard or mouse pad. I am not having any issues with them waking from sleep using the power button or when I open or close them. I checked the BIOS and the power settings aren't there. (BIOS version F.32)I have the boxes checked to allow the devices to wake the computer in the power management section without any success.I have changed the Intel MEI driver to 9.5 instead of 11 that is typically installed  without any success. I am not sure if this is an issue with the BIOS and Windows 10 or something driver related. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Really really really slow after wake up

It could be a normal occurrence. Modern computers have so many "chores" to complete, running in the background isn't unusual. If it only happens some of the time after "awakening" it's not serious. Also FYI, check out an article on computer sleep vs. hibernation.

I've had my Dell monitor for about a year and it's been set to turn off after an hour. Until a couple of days ago I could move my mouse and it would come up. Now it takes a long time to "wake up" after I click the mouse.

The power settings are "turn off monitor" set at one hour; "turn off hard drives" set at one hour and "System Standby" after two hours.

I vary the monitor setting once in a while because sometimes it doesn't shut down at all.

A friend has his system standby set to "never" and swears that's the way to go.

Any suggestions about settings, etc. would be appreciated.

I found a thread about three years old on this subject but it did not answer my problem. I am using an HP desktop (new 10/06) with flat panel monitor. Recently, the monitor is taking a long time to wake up (2-4 minutes). After wake up, everything runs normally. The slow wake up occurs after sleep or on initial boot up. The PC will wake up and the blue light behind the monitor power button will start flashing slowly. During this time, I can open Aps, I just cannot see them. Eventually, the monitor wakes up and everything works fine. I checked for a new monitor driver but it said I was up to date.

I was comparing my new P52 (Xeon processor, 32 GB, NVMe SSD) to the wake speed of my friend's 5 year old MacBook Air.  The MacBook Air resumes from sleep in less than 1 second. It prompts you for your password very quickly.  Windows 10 x64 (1809 17763.134) takes minimally 5-8 seconds (never less) when lifting the lid to get the background image and finally prompt for the password. When the resume process starts, there is a fair amount of disk activity.  I also noticed that the P52 takes at least 5 seconds to achieve sleep mode. From the time I close the lid to the time the red led on the ThinkPad cover starts blinking. The "Fast startup" option in power settings is DISABLED. What do other see on their systems ?  Is this a Windows definiciency  or a ThinkPad specific issue ?

This is just a small thing, but my X1 Extreme feels like it takes awfully long to wake from sleep. Opening the lid of my laptop, I expect it to be ready to go immediately, especially with a supposedly excellent SSD. But the screen stays black for a second or two, then the power button flashes, a few more seconds go by, the screen finally turns on, a few more seconds and Windows Hello decides to activate, the mouse finally starts to respond, and then I'm finally in. Just feels awfully janky for a performance device. Anyone experience this or have any fixes?

A friend has a 2 year old Samsung Laptop with an Intel Core i7 processor, not sure of exact brand processor speed or RAM (I can get that if it is absolutely needed). He has not loaded Windows 8.1 yet so it is still Windows 8.0. He noted "I keep putting it off. Mainly because I was told at one point that my Remote Desktop software is not compatible with 8.1. But that might be resolved by now; not sure."

Here is the problem: After working with it (nothing major like video editing, just web surfing, minor photo edits, music downloads and the such) he will close the lid (which puts it to sleep) or hibernate it. When he resumes it or wakes it up depending, more often than not it will take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours for him to get to an actual working state.

He brought it to me a few weeks ago and I did the usual scans (malwarebytes, installed an antivirus as he was relying on Windows Defender alone), didn't really find anything though. After having it for 3 days I could not get it to replicate the problem.

I took a look at the start-up and don't recall see anything unusual either.

I did some reading about windows defender and noted that it has caused some similar results for others but I disabled it.

My friend noted today that it still does the same thing. Below is what he wrote:

It is not about the mouse.. Esp. if the keyboard is just as slow.

It is either your monitor, some changed power management settings or the general slowness of your computer.

I would report this directly to support but Lenovo it won't allow to me register my wife's X1 with my account inspite of the fact that I'm the one who ordered it. Ugh. Machine model: 20HRCT01WW My wife has 6 week old machine and it is much slower to wake from sleep than its predecessor (2nd Gen Carbon X1). I timed it this morning and it took in the range of 10 seconds. I just double checked the old, takes 4-5 seconds to wake up. (Having been asleep for several days). One would niavely assume, newer machine with faster CPU and SSD should wake faster. I have a pretty decent understanding of the various sleep states (S0 -> S4 - i.e. hibernate). I have spent a few minutes in the Event Viewer but can't find much useful logging of sleep state changes to figure out is going on. I have just time the time to wake from hibernate and its only marginally worse than sleep (~12 secs). (Full reboot is noticebly faster). How can I tweak the system so that wake from sleep is less painful? ThanksMark Levison

When waking my computer from sleep it takes 8 seconds for the screen to come on, then nothing responds for another 25 seconds. I fixed all the errors in event manager, updated the bios, installed all the newest drivers, changed BIOS settings. All to no avail.

All the components (except the MB and CPU) were recycled from my last motherboard which would be ready to go immediately from sleep. My previous build (which ran great) was also Windows 8.1 but the motherboard died. I have no password. The lock screen is disabled. Disabled suspend, and shut off hybrid sleep.

Why the lag? Is there any way to find out what's slowing me down?

A:Windows 8.1 New Build Slow Wake from Sleep

Solved - I examined the sata settings in the BIOS and found the SSD drives were not detecting. Or perhaps semi-detecting since the system could boot off of them. I moved them onto different ports and they started to detect. This also restored my proper wake from sleep speed.

Hello all

I am having an issue with slow Network performance after my machines wake from sleep.

After a fresh boot of my machines I achieve 30 - 40MB/s (Wired) or 10 - 14MB/s (Wireless N) from my Nas, however, when I resume my machines from Sleep the Network performance falls to 10 - 20KB/s for both the Wired and Wireless machines.

I have found that if I Disable the Network Adapters and then immediately Re-Enable them my Netwok speed is restored.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 and x64 with Realtek and Atheros Nics.

All Drivers on all machines are upto date.

Any suggestions?

My laptop started taking extra long to wake from sleep mode immediately after upgrading to Windows 10. The problem has persisted for several months. Startup time seems normal, and the computer enters sleep mode quickly after shutting the screen. I always choose to receive updates automatically, so all updates, drivers, etc. should be up to date. There is no new software installed since the upgrade. What happens is when I open the laptop and strike a key, touch the touchpad, or move my wireless mouse, the light around the touchpad comes on, so I know the computer is trying to wake up, but the screen remains black for various amounts of time- sometimes only 30 seconds or so, but most of the time several minutes, until finally the lockscreen appears. I've checked to make sure the keyboard is set to wake the computer under Devices. I've searched for a solution, and although there are instances of people having the same problem, I have not found a solution. I've listed my system specs that I think would be pertinent. Thanks for any help regarding this issue.

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.

Any ideas?

I have a Razer Copperhead USB Mouse.

Specs of my desktop can be found here: TechComet: My Gadgets

Basically, I put my desktop to sleep (using S3-STR) and when I wake it up my moues does not respond for about 15-30 s after which it works fine. I am running Windows 7.

I have no other problems with my system, my keyboard responds fine and I have all necessary drivers installed.

I have no idea why this is happening and the fact that my computer resumes from sleep in 2 seconds is great, but not when I have to wait another 30 for the mouse to work!

Any ideas?

A:USB Mouse slow to respond after wake from Sleep


Did you check for new drivers?
Are drivers working properly?

Did you experiment with another mouse?

Go to device manager, to check drivers. A yellow warining marker will inidcate problems. It will not show if it is the most current, however.

I was just wondering if anyone else was having similar issues? The laptop does wake up after going to sleep but it is noticeably slower than a fresh start up. If I lift the lid after its been put to sleep the keyboard lights up but nothing seems to happen for around 20 seconds and then the lock screen appears. Is this normal? TheDickieBoy

Hi, The problem that we seem to be having with our 1040s is that after the computer falls asleep off the dock, and then we dock the computer it takes 15 to 20 seconds for the USB mouse and keyboard to work. I can recreate this everything time I undock the computer and redock it.  I am recreating our users taking their laptops home and then docking it in the morning back in the office.  Steps to Recreate:The test I am doing to recreate this is: I undock the laptop with the lid open for about 30 seconds, close the lid wait another 30 seconds (By this time the laptop is asleep), I dock the computer with the lid closed (Power button on the docking station is pulsing slowly), Hit the power button and then start the timer.  We have 9470m  laptops using the same dock and when I try to recreate this problem it reconnect the mouse and keyboard within 6 seconds (this is the time frame we are trying to get or faster. Hardware/Equipment/ firmwareWe have an Elitebook Folio 1040 G3 Notebook on a 2013 Ultraslim docking station, firmware on the docking station is 2.30.We have a USB mouse and a USB Wireless mouse, they both give us the same results on any 1040 laptop we put it on.Universal Serial controller: Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible host ControllerIntel(R) 3.0 root hubUSB 2.0 MTT HubUSB 3.0 HUB    All have the same versions as are on a balanced power plan (not sure if this is needed to know but thought i...

Hi everyone, when I wake my Yoga 900 from sleep mode, it takes around 6 seconds for the screen to turn back on. That's reasonable. My girlfriend's Yoga 900 however takes only 2 seconds, we bought them around the same time, same system etc. Also, since yesterday, when the screen goes black after the set time (e.g. 5 min) and I touch the touchpad or press any key it also takes around 7 seconds before the screen goes back on which is way too long since before it reacted alost instantaneously. What might be the issue? Could both things be connected somehow? Thanks for any help!

My upgrade to Windows 10 went well and all has been great for months until all of a sudden a few days ago when I try to wake up the computer after putting it in sleep mode.. the spinning dots are going at about 1/3 speed and it doesn't wake up until I ctl/alt/del and it restarts.

I also just noticed that now on my task manager one of the processes is Radeon Settings: Host Application and it's continuously sucking between 18% and 30% of available RAM (I have 8 GB ram)

Not sure what happened or what to do but something is obviously wrong. Anyone got any ideas?

Hey !

I had a very very disturbing experience in which I was forced to shut down the computer, but failed and accidentally sent it to sleep.
Unfortunately, it never managed to wake up. It stayed during half an hour blocked early in the restarting process... I took my chance with a hard-reset.

And then it becomes insane. It gives me the cold shoulder, just hanging in a "Reverting changes" task. It's been a good while too.

I stand in awe wondering how is it even possible to break my setup like this. Considering the damn thing came with no restoring CD of any kind, on a scale of it's all fine to you're screwed, how exactly would you rate me ?

Thanks for helping !

A:Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

It might have a recovery partition where you could revert it to factory settings.

If you can get into the bios enable the boot menu which should activate F-12 to show the boot menu on startup.
If so choose 10 & get into recovery options.

I have this big problem since I have received my P50 (at least for one year now). It is a 7600HQ machine with a Quadro 1000M video card. Let's say I start my day by turning on the laptop. The laptop boots. I see the Windows login screen. If I wait a little the P50 crashed very hard. The screen shows the artifact in the screenshot I have attached but sometimes I see an even color (like yellow) instead of the artifacts. The whole system is frozen. The lights on the keyboard do not react (num lock for example). So I hard reset the laptop using the power button and this repeats for around 10 times before it is booted correctly. And after this: the P50 is rock solid. It stays on for days at a time. Multiple VM's running, 32GB memory, M.2 SSD. Fully functional. So I thought it was Windows and installed Linux. This showed the exact same behavior. Some things to consider: 1. Only happens when I turn on the computer after some down time2. Once up it is rock solid3. Seems to happen more when I connect an external monitor (immediatly after connecting the cable). Both DP or HDMI show the symptoms.But I have seen it happen while using the P50 on my lap.4. All updates installed via the System Update app of Lenovo. Inclusing all BIOS updates5. Tried the hybrid or dedicated options in the bios for the video card. No change.6. It does not happen all mornings. Sometimes it boots up fine on the first try.7. Never happens in the BIOS or boot up screen. Only when the... Read more

I don't have an internet connection after boot up or after I wake the system up from sleep. This happens just about everytime, the troubleshooter have no problem fixing it every time. There is nothing wrong with the network as I still get a dial tone on the telephone.

Hi all

I recently clean re-installed Win7 Pro 64 and now the Power Options keep reverting to High Performance every time I re-boot and even on wake up. If I set it to a power plan every time it works fine that one time.

I didn't make any changes to hardware/bios from previous install. The only change is that I first installed XP x86 to a separate redundant HD to enable a legacy scanner for which no 64bit drivers are available and I only boot into XP on an occasional as and when basis. I didn't make any changes to Windows boot manager & can only boot into it from F8.

I also downloaded a legacy game from Steam which is running happily on Win7. I rapidly decided that I hate Steam so I set it not to run at startup, only play offline and kill all associated process after closing the game. Again, I'm not running the game on a daily basis so it's unlikely this is affecting this persistant behaviour.

Grateful for any ideas.

Hi all - quick question. I have a Inspiron 13 7000 special edition. So far, I love it. The only nit that I have with it is that frequently, when waking up from sleep - even if I just have the lid closed for 5 minutes - it takes about 30 seconds to 1 minute to wake from sleep.
It's pretty annoying and if anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.
More info:
Latest BIOS installed
All drivers up to date using Dell's update utility.
All windows updates installed

Our machines, when they sleep, then try and wake up again, get a "no boot device found" error.  reboot, it goes into diagnstics.  Reboot again, it goes into attempting bootp. Reboot again, it starts windows 10 normally. I have turned off all os options with regards to sleep (high power power mode, turned off hybrid sleep, turned off "turn off hard drive after" etc..._)  all to no avail. Any ideas?  Thanks update: found we had a slightly older bios, so I'mgoing to see if that helps (.012 vs.014)
