lenovo G50-80 bios takes 20+ seconds to boot issue

Q: lenovo G50-80 bios takes 20+ seconds to boot issue

My laptop had an issue with bios chip failure so I had to change my bios chip. So I gave to lenovo service center and they changed the bios chip and gave me back. Now what happens is whenever I boot up my laptop it takes 20-22+ seconds to show me the lenovo bios logo and boots up the OS. And OS runs slower than before. I tried reinstalling the OS but the same issue occurs.task manager shows last bios time 20+ secs

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 , my problem is that this new pc , that i got for 2 days , y50-70 , boots so slowly. It is literally 65 seconds. And i have no idea why..... Cant i enable somewhere some fast boot setting ? please help , this performance is terrible...

A:Windows 8.1 takes 65 seconds to boot on Lenovo y50-70

Might be worth your while to check what programmes are in Startup.
Open "Task Manager".....click on "Startup".....then disable any that you don't need for starting the computer.

Just aquired an Inspiron 5759 which is great and does everything I want apart from one thing - it takes an eternity (10 seconds) to show anything on the screen and as it doesn't have a power light I thought it wasn't turning on the first few times I pressed the power button so obviously pressed it more times than I should have!
I have seen the thread about switching the light at the front to show the HDD activity but as you have to press the fn and H key every time you turn it on it doesn't really help.
 This is a real issue for me so is there any way to make it boot quicker?

Hello,
I have an Samsung SSD EVO 850 (250GB), 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a I3-2120 (Sandy Bridge) CPU
Running windows 7 with service pack 1 ( 6.1.7601 according to ver command)
Boot takes 60 seconds to load.
Been trying Sfc /scannow

Here is some useful stuff from my computer:
ntblog.txt
System information log
System (Event viewer)

I have also found this guide guide
At first i have choosen the first one - Only discovering problems but without repairing them.
Rebooted my pc then went to the event viewer. There i have seen that ArcSec Driver has failed to start.
I have switched to the second option that includes repair, rebooted my pc and nothing. nothing has changed.
I have launched Autoruns Sysinternals and found some problems - deleted some, disabled some but it changed nothing. Still boot takes 60 seconds (from the moment "starting windows" is on the screen till you can type a password)

I'm dual booting with windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04.
I followed this http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2012/05/17/how-to-dual-boot-ubuntu-12-04-and-windows-7/2/.

For a few months it has been running smoothly without problems. But a couple of days ago my computer
is slow to load up.


Note everything is working fine after bootup. But I'm really paranoid because it seems like the it takes a few seconds before it boots up when it used to load up instantly before probably for 5-7 seconds only.

Here's what's happening.

1. When switching the pc on. For about 30 seconds and more, nothing appears on monitor. It is completely black, nothing appears with the just monitor switch blinking and the 3 lights on the keyboards don't yet flash. But when I'm restarting, the boot process only loads about for about 10 seconds after which is not yet normal as compared to before.
2. Only after that particular seconds, then my pc will load up.

Dear Members,I am in trouble with my  Idea Pad Z570: I bought it couple of years ago running Windows 7. During the years of usage I had no trouble at all. With Windows 10 beeing released, I upgraded and it starts to make a lot of troubles: Bluescreen directly after boot or sign in, no WiFi, ... all the known stuff. So I decided last week to downgrade to Windows 7. But now, I am even in a bigger trouble:I tried to boot the Windows 7 from DVD and it crashed into Bluescreen saying: Windows Error 0xc0000225Restarting is not helping. So, i tried to go into BIOS to boot from another device,but I do not even get to BIOS or UEFI. So, thats a kind of Deadlock: I cannot boot from Harddisk because Windows Error 0xc0000225 appears and I cannot get into BIOS & UEFI because the Windows error 0xc0000225 comes before getting to BIOS. Hope this description of my current situation is understandable and you guys have a lot of ideas how to fix it. Thanks!TheGooner

Now to be clear I'm almost positive the issue is with my USB hub, Plugable. The ($5 Dell) keyboard is plugged into this hub which is powered via AC and connected to my back side USB ports.

When my computer is booting, I have full keyboard control.

When Windows loads, it takes 75s for the keyboard and mouse (which are both plugged in via the hub) to become usable. Kinda kills the joy of the SSD boot time. >:|

I'm assuming there's some service or .dll or something that loads way later than it has to, and I'm hoping I could bump it up. Can you help me out?

I have a Thinkpad T410 (BiOS seems to have been made in 2011) and for about half a month, I haven't switched it off very often.So this morning, I put it on sleep  and brought it to class, but when I lifted the cover, the usual 1~2 second wake-up screen did not pop up, in fact, it took roughly 30 SECONDS before anything showed up on the screen.I got back and tried shutting the thing down, and restarting, but the thing took roughly 30 seconds to show me the BOOT screen (with the Thinkpad icon). When I pressed the Power button, it lit up properly, and the battery icon was on too, but it just sits there for 30-ish seconds, before even showing me life on the screen. After the 30 second wait for the Boot screen (whether from sleep or starting up), everything works fine, I'm brought to my start screen at normal speed.I've given that sketchy (cuz it hasn't worked for me) "static discharge" Power Button trick two tries after disconnecting the battery,wires and ac adapters, but doesn't change the 30 second wait before the screen shows anything.Can anyone tell me what the heck is going on?

The original HDD works fine on my Lenovo G575 (Model 20081). I cloned it to an SSD it takes 15 minutes to boot. It hangs for 10 minutes then the Windows logo appears and it takes another 5 monutes to start up. The SSD has the latest firmware and the laptop has the latest bios. The SSD works fine on another computer.  As an experiment I deleted all the partitions and did a fresh install of Win 7 home on the SSD. The problem persists. So it has nothing to do with the clone. It was booting up fine several times during the Win 7 installation. If I put in a a Win 7 disk and select the option to reboot its fine. But without a CD to command it to reboot it hangs and takes 15 minutes to boot. It must be searching for a driver or something. Your advice would be appreciated.    Kind regardsChris

So I got lenovo y50-70 for about a year and like 4 months ago I have noticed that it takes longer and longer to boot my computer. In these few months the time that my computer needs to boot till bios has increased from less then a minute to more then an hour. I have updated my windows from windows 8 to windows 10 thinking that it might fix something but it didnt. I have tried to turn on hybernation but it didnt make any differences at all. This problem only appears when I am trying to turn my computer on (if I left it sleeping or turned it off it acts normal). When I am waiting for it to boot up it makes sounds and my keyboards is glowing as usual and that's all rest of my computer acts like it is turned off and stays like this till my screen turns on and lenovo logo appears.

I have mdl AMI P5w3e 204 Bios in my laptop. I added Ubuntu 12 with dual boot. I used Easy123 to create a boot menu not realizing that the Ubuntu installer also created a boot menu. Whatever the two boot menus do I know that the time from start of display of the bios to when it finishes displaying went from 15-20 seconds to 1 minute 40 seconds. I will try to remove the Easy123 menu and see if that makes a difference. In the meantime is the length of the bios running affected by Ubuntu?

Bill

A:BIOS ver AMI p53e 204 went from 15 to 100 seconds with dual boot/

The correct name is EasyBCD NOT Easy123. Anyway the bios is still at 100 seconds with th EasyBCD menu removed. I would prefer to use the EasyBCD menu rather that the one created by the Ubuntu installer. Is there a way to get rid of it?

Recently my Lenovo Y50-70 laptop suddenly started acting weird right after Windows 10 update. It got worse a couple weeks later after a May 2017 Windows 10 Anniversary update. So I updated the graphics drivers and ever since then my laptop will take hours to boot up. I changed the power settings so it does not go into sleep mode as that was the first issue I noticed when issues started - it would go to sleep or hibernate and would not come back without hard start. I turned off the screen saver, changed power settings so that screen & laptop wont hibernate or sleep. Made sure Windows Updates all up to date. Tried to Skype to take a peek before removing it but it wont open and I got a message saying "Cant be opened using the Built-In Administrator account. Sign in with a different account and try again." I have no idea what that means. There is only the one account on here and only I use this laptop. If that was as bad as it got I could deal with this but... Last night I was trying to backup everything and eventually fell asleep waiting for reboot to kick in. The OS was booted up when I woke up this morning and I decided to restart it after my backup to external drive failed........ bad decision on my part there as I have spent last 12 hrs trying to get this stupid thing into Safe Mode, or BIOS or even just regular start up. Nothing. As of 9am today I can not even get it to boot at all it just keeps running, lights on, fan spinning but nothing happening ... Read more

Hi, I'm new here I've been asked for help about this problem in like 5 other forums, and noone know what to do. This is my last call, so now it's up to you guys!

So, the problem:
It all started on a LAN.
After the LAN my computer takes about 8 seconds to open a:
Image file
Audio/Music file
Textdocument
And Video.

Other programs such as Flash, Photoshop, etc etc runs normally and there is no delay at all.
So I've been googling this alot, and found out that it have to be something to do with a "Broken local network link" or something like that.

What I already have tried to solve my problem:
Defragment C-disk
Virus-scan (used 4 programs as kaspersky, ad-aware etc)
System Restore
Copy the pictures and open them on another disk
Install another picture-viewer program
Quit sharing files on Local area network

Interesting things:
When I load windows in "Safe mode without internet connection" everything works perfectly! But when I start "Safe mode with internet connection" it is the same problem again.
Also, when I unplugg the internet cable everything is good again, and no delay, but as soon as I plugg it back in it starts to lagg...

Please could anyone help me?

I upgraded from Win 8 Pro with Media Center to 8.1 Pro with Media Center. Upgrade went smooth (but what's with going completely thru the install BEFORE asking if you accept the new license?)

But now it takes 15 seconds to open the right click menu on the desktop as opposed to probably less than 1/10 of a second before. All other right clicks seem normal. No significant CPU usage during the wait.

If it matters, I'm pretty damn vanilla but I do have Start8 and ModernMix.

Also if its significant, Catalyst Control Panel won't start (I'll reinstall the latest but it was current less than a week ago).

Also my secondary monitor is set to the correct resolution (1920x1080) but its shrunk with a more than half inch black border around it. I'm hoping the Catalyst/driver reinstall fixes this too.

A:Win 8.1 desktop right click takes 15 seconds!

I just noticed it has the time wrong also. I'm still set to Arizona time (no DST) but it incorrectly shows time an hour later than actual and when I change to a different timezone it stays an hour off from what that time zone actually is.

I hope I didn't make a mistake by not waiting a week to upgrade.

Hello guys, I've been asking a lot of questions lately, I just want to get these resolved.

I run Windows XP Home Edition SP2. I have Firefox 3.0.1 installed with only 1 extension, Adblock Plus. At a cold launch, Firefox takes more than 30 seconds to start (the window appearing). After that, it takes about 15 seconds to load. This has happened as long as I can remember, even with Firefox 2. And yes, without extensions and a clean install, the same time to start.

What can be the problem? I tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling (without uninstalling preferences.) Can completely uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it help? I don't want to lose my prefs and data.

By the way, I have 2GB of RAM, so I don't think that's the problem.
 

A:Firefox takes no less than 40 seconds to start

You can always backup your profile if you want to do a clean install of firefox. But not sure restoring the profile would not also restore things back as it is now.
But you could restore just parts.

MozBackup 1.4.8 works great at backups and restore.

You state that you are opening a .doc file... I am assuming that you mean a MS Word file (.doc or .docx), is that the case?

You are using Open Office to do this?

How are you opening these files? Are you finding file and double clicking on file to open both app and doc, or are you opening app (Open Office) and then opening doc through it?

I assume that all your mobo drivers, etc are correctly setup...???

I can check Win7 64 bit to see what the problem is? I have Opera 12 installed on 2 other computers (one with Win7 64 bit and the other w/XP) and the browser opens within seconds. The delay is only happening on the wife's computer. I changed no settings on Opera when I installed the upgrade to 12 so I am guessing it is the PC that is causing the painful delay.
I un-installed it twice, installed it once to her SSD and then again on her HDD and there was no change in the startup delay-it is driving me crazy.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Jeff

A:Opera 12 takes 15-17 seconds to start up-is there anyway

If you upgraded from a previous version, maybe it's due to a setting or something carried over from the older version. Why not try a fresh install from scratch? You can do a "portable" install into a new folder somewhere and try if that copy starts fast.

I have a lenovo Thinkpad E530C laptop and sometimes the computer posts and sometimes not. I see others have this issue on the web but i tried all solutions and no luck. When the computer does post i tried to boot from a bios update cd and when the update is running i get this error. Memory cannot be allocated, and the process did not complete.

Hello all,

Can someone help me figure out a problem my Windows 7 has while loading user credentials thumbnail? Lately it has been taking good 20 to 30 seconds right after the Please Wait screen to load all user credentials thumbnails! And even if after clicking a thumbnail, it takes about 5+ seconds to display password box. I have tried googling this issue but so far no luck.

Any suggestion or advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Khurram

A:Windows 7 takes 20 to 30 seconds after Please Wait screen

this problem may be cos you have a lot of startup programs turned on, also unnesecary services etc...

press start and type msconig and press enter.
select startup tab and click disable all button or manulay uncheck items.
now select services tab and check hide all microsoft services checkbox then click disable all button.
select boot tab and type number 3 into Timeout box and press OK

press start and type disk cleanup and enter.
when disk cleanup tool analyzes your drive check all the checkboxes and
clean up you C: partion (where windows is installed) using this tool.

goto C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Temp (change Admin with your username)
empty whole temp folder by selecting all files and folder and delete them.

finaly empty your recycle bin and restart computer.
see what changes you've achived and post the results.

also you may full scan your comp with Antivirs and defrag HD using defragmenter(start>defrag>enter)

after all these steps your may update windows and restart again.

cheers.

Not sure why it happened but a month or so ago, my computer became infected by a virus pretending to be an antivirus / spyware / malware program (i don't remember the virus name, sorry). So I got Malwarebytes and was able to remove it (how thoroughly I'm not sure). After that happened though, saving images from the internet as .jpgs now take 35 seconds before the window to save actually appears. can anyone help out please?

I updated malwarebytes just today and ran a full scan just now on safe mode but it didn't find anything wrong.
I also did a cleanup of my harddrives to delete approx 4gbs of unwanted data and did a defrag afterwards.

the lag to save pictures still happens though.

A:"save picture as" takes 35 seconds before actually saving

Oke, Before I can say amything about it , I have to get more data.Could you do these steps : Download AdwCleaner(by Xplode) on your desktop.Launch it, click on [Delete] and wait for the scan.When the scan ends, notepad with the report will appears.The program will close all active programs. Click OK to confirm that.On the next two windows that open ( Informations and Restart required ) click OK The computer will restart and open a notepad ( C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt ) with the report.Save the notepad report on the DesktopPlease attach here C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt Roelof

I have been fighting a problem with a new Windows 8 deployment for over 3 weeks now.

I need to deploy over 700 Windows 8 Pro systems by August 1 for a school corporation and I have been stalled on this one issue.

I am using Windows MDT2012 Update 1 for deployment. The computers I am deploying images to are Lenovo Thinkpad E530C and E531 laptops. I have deployed new images to about 40 laptops in a lab that all have experienced the problem.

The problem presents itself during a domain user logon to a Windows 8 Pro system. After the user types in their domain user name and password, the login process looks normal for the first 30 seconds. Then, instead of displaying the Start screen, the screen goes black for 10 minutes. After the 10 minute delay, the Start screen displays and everything runs normally.

The problem is random. It is not specific to any user account or laptop. Sometimes a user can log into a laptop with no problem and then the same user can log into the same laptop and get the 10 minute delay.

I opened a case with Microsoft Product Support on 7/15 but so far, that has gotten me no where. They gathered a ton of logs but did not give me any analysis. They examined my Group Policies and spent an hour on one of the systems that experienced the 10 minute delay during the login I started so I could get them set up with a remote session. So far, no solution.

I did some research of my own and came across the Windows Performance Toolkit in the Windows 8 SDK.
I ended... Read more

A:AUInstallAgent takes 600 seconds during domain logon

I do not have any experience with your situation, but it appears the information you are getting about the boot process is very basic. Did Microsoft suggest you run a utility called Process Monitor, which can be set to monitor the boot and create a log?

If not, I would go to the SysInternals site and download and run it. There are tutorials on how to set it up, but you can set it to monitor the boot sequence. In your situation, it will probably show something being done over and over, or time gaps where nothing is being done.

I am sure a Domain setup is different from normal user setup, but your might try disabling the service you mention (AllUserInstallAgent) for testing. It is disabled in a non-domain type install, or at least it is in 8.1

Sorry I can't help more.

Edit: I forgot to mention, just in case it might be relevant, that update KB2821895 made some fairly serious changes. You might want to check out the info page in the link. At the bottom it does state you will want to run DISM.exe prior to deployments.

A servicing stack update is available for Windows RT and Windows 8: June 2013

4 Gig RAM
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 @ 2.8 GHz
NVIDIA board

I've been running this system just fine until recently when this problem with the right-click menu started. Actually, it is a problem specific to the "New" portion of the right-click menu in Windows Explorer. I can right-click a blank portion of an Explorer window and I get the usual instant pop-out menu; but, if I click "New", it takes a full ten seconds to respond. For ten seconds, it is as though I didn't click at all, then the "New" nested menu appears and everything works as normal. If I impatiently click several times in a row during that ten seconds (on "New"), everything grays for the rest of the ten seconds, then the Windows Desktop redraws completely and I have to start over again trying to use the "New" menu.

This has been going on for about two weeks.

Suggestions?

I am running Windows XP pro and when my laptop bots up it displays the background image but the icons do not come up until 30 seconds later. Removing the background image keeps this from happening but the machine has plenty of memory so I am wondering: Is it simply the background image or is this a sign that something else could be wrong? Thanks!
