Long bootup time:

Recommended Posts

Don't know if this is the right forum to make this post, but my problem really is not hardware (I think), and I do not see a specific forum for software or the like.I am running two computers (specs. below) implementing FSC80, PFE/Proflight2000, FSM, ASE, and FDC on the secondary computer through either wideclient for FS9, and/or SimConnect for FSX.No problem on my primary computer (Win XP Pro 64bit).Ignoring FlightSim (not having run related programs) for all other programs like MSOffice, and several resource programs there is no problem on the secondary computer and bootup time is less than a minute for a restart, and only a few seconds after the welcome screen displays (Win XP Pro 32bit ).However after implementing my FlightSim related programs and flying in FS9 and/or FSX, if I restart my secondary computer everything looks normal until the welcome screen is displayed. It then takes about six minutes before the bootup is complete.I have thus far not been able to isolate the culprit. This really is not a biggie as I normally leave everything running 24/7 and once the bootup is complete everything seems to be normal for the long haul. I am curious if anyone else has seen this happen though and might know the culprit and/or solution.Primary Computer Specs as follow:ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel ATX MotherboardIntel Core i7-975 Extreme Quad Core CPUScythe SY124010L CPU Fan6GB (3x2GB) 240 Pin DDR3 1600 OCZ3P1600LV6GK MemoryWinXP Pro 64 BitEVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512 bigt DDR3 Video Graphics Card23" HPw2338h Primary Monitor21” Viewsonic Pro Series P815 Secondary MonitorNvidia version 266.58 drivers for GTX 285 Video Card1 Western Digital Velco/Raptor WD3000HLFS 300 GB 10000RPM WATA 3 GB System Harddrive1 Western Digital Velco/Raptor WD3000HLFS 300 GB 10000RPM WATA 3 GB FSX Harddrive1 each Segate 320GB SATA FS9 Harddrive1 each Segate 320GB SATA Backup / Utility HarddriveStd.

I know if the Windows partition doesn't get defragged in ages the boot times can go up quickly; so if you haven't done a defrag in awhile I'd suggest you do so with a 3rd party defragger like O&O for example. Also I know if the MFT (Master FIle Table) doesn't defragged boot times can suffer as well; the only defraggers I'm aware of that defrag the MFT are O&O during a boot time defrag, and Smart Defrag by Iobit (also during a boot time defrag.)You say after the login it takes forever (6 minutes) to load your user account? If that's the case: check and trim the start up programs list and trim unnecessary services as well (if you haven' done that.)
