Upgrade to Windows 7 - stop now U350 takes about 5 minutes

I used a USB attached drive DVD/CD to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate edition, and only the one button recovery has stopped working.

I'm very happy with the result with a single nagging problem.

It takes the system about 5 minutes at the stop. There is nothing to indicate why it is so slow, and the lights indicate little or no system activity during this period.

Otherwise, Windows 7 is very fine and a big improvement over Vista.

    Hello

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Communities. From your problem description, I understand that you are facing problems when the computer starts.

    1. what operating system is installed on the computer?

    Please go ahead and follow the steps mentioned and later a update on the State of the question.

    Method 1: Check if the problem is caused by some faulty devices on your computer. I suggest that you disconnect all external devices except the mouse and keyboard to your computer and check to see if the same problem happens.

    Method 2: Try to run the troubleshooter of Performance:

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/open-the-performance-Troubleshooter

    Method 3: Try to boot in safe mode and check if the same problem occurs.

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

    (For Windows Vista)

    Method 4: If the question does not exist in Mode safe mode then try to set up your computer in a clean boot state, and check to see if the same problem happens.

    By setting your boot system minimum state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem.

    * Original title: Windows 7 Starter

    It takes about 6 minutes for the computer to boot. I mounted early and disabled now needed to start programs.

    If it were my system:

    1. I'd be more suspicious of malware, run ADWcleaner and have a good program antivirus https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

    7. I would like to install and run Autoruns to check what is in the startup process

    8. AND, above all, focus on the applications installed.  Some of them are notorious resource hogs who insist on running at startup.

    There is no software hogging the system because I've been surfing or play media files.
    Is due to the fact that it has only 192 MB of ram, because I thought the upgrade anyway. Or I am barking the wrong tree?

    See you soon

    Hello

    I agree with Jonathan

    A little more RAM can be very good, and it can make your device faster and more flexible. I recommend you to check all active running process. Generally, many of them is absolutely useless, but they can slow down the system quickly especially if the device does not have a lot of RAM.

    I recommend clean up the operating system, use the Defragmenter tool and check applications that start with Windows. Many of them may be disabled. Enforcement antivir may also slow the operating system currently running. Check all this. I hope that your device will work better.

    By the way: the compatible memory module for your device are
    DDR2 400/533 256 MB (PA3389U - 1 M 25)
    512 MB DDR2-400/533 (PA3412U - 1 M 51)

    Good luck!

  • Roxio takes about 190 minutes to compress my dvd for burning, is this normal?

    Time to compress the video

    I have a laptop Dell Inspiron N4110 Win7 professional.  The laptop uses a dual-core Intel Pentium B940 / processor dual thread clocked at 2 GHz with 4 GB RAM and 200 GB of free space on the hard disk.  I am recording video analog (NTSC) and stereo audio to aid Easy VHS of Roxio hardware to DVD / software package.  Video is scanned in real time by the A/D converter.  A 100-minute VHS video produced a mpg of 6.13 GB hard disk file.  The compression process of Roxio to shrink the file to mpg of 6.13 GB less than 4.7 GB for recording on a DVD + R single takes about 190 minutes.  Is it a normal time for my laptop?  Are there other programs of compression that would be much faster?    Would be a better laptop with an Intel quad core / 8 processor i7-2860QM thread and 8 GB of RAM to reduce the significant period of time compression, for example less than 60 minutes?

    DVD-video is encoded more time-based
    as the size of the file. Compression is not necessary.

    A video file of 100 minutes should fit on a 4.7 GB DVD.

  • Startup takes about 5 minutes to complete to start on my HP laptop.

    Desktop loads upwards just fine, fast, straight bar tool with the exception of the Wi Fi Connected icon, it takes about 5 minutes to appear, this time on that hard drive lite is a little hard. If you tap the icon on the tool bar network bars she says you are connected. If you try to open something out of the Office during that time, he just sits there watching waiting for you to start to complete. Once starting over thing work fine, that too, if you plug in a USB key during the startup time (5 minutes), you hear the sound that you always hear when you plug one but it doesn't appear in Windows Explorer until after 5 minutes of waiting. I did a system restore to a moment where it was sunny and that did not help. I ran a defrag on the C drive, I ran a disk check, with no errors found. I look in the task during this time Manager, and you see no programs running. I run Malwarebytes and Super Anti Spyware and nothing detected. Can someone help me with this?

    Hello

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community Forum.

    I understand that the process of starting your computer is slow. Let me ask you a few questions to better understand.

    1. What security software do you use?
    2. You did it all meaning hardware or software change?
    3. You get the error message? If Yes, when and what is the exact error message?

    I suggest that you perform a clean boot procedure, and then try to install the add-in.

  • The Print Test takes about 15 minutes to complete.

    I have the same problem with a D1520. I went through all the self-help and the Test print. The Print Test takes about 15 minutes to complete.

    This is caused by the failure of one of your cartridges.  Remove the black print cartridge and print a test page.  The printer prints at a normal speed?  Is therefore the black cartridge was the issue and needs to be replaced.  If it isn't then, put the black back cartridge in and remove the color cartridge and the test page printed.  If the printer now prints speed the color cartridge is responsible and must be replaced.

    Start the Task Manager and check if any strange background process needs the full CPU performance.

    However the portable equipment could bad work.

  • You try to transfer data to new computer, takes about 30 minutes to collect data, and then told me that it will take 33 + hours of transfer

    I have 2 PC, two 40 g X 2 g, an old score about 12 GB of data, 71% free, new is ready to receive. When I make the connection with a null cable and start, it takes about 30 minutes to put together and start the transfer, but it gives a transfer time of 33 + hrs and that means, I let it run for about 6 hours, and he was always less than 6% of fact. No games or large, larger files is about 12 MB. Any help? Bob

    If cable "null", you hear a serial RS-232 cable, you probably chose the slowest method of data transfer possible.  A serial cable tops out at raw data of 115 Kbps (115 000 bits per second) rate the most current Ethernet 100 Mbit/s connection - is about 1000 times faster.

    I don't know why some s/w you use takes 30 minutes to "collect" information before starting the transfer, but if you have about 12 GB of data (and don't have / want an Ethernet connection), why not just get a big enough USB.  You can get a 8 GB USB key for less than $15 and a 16 GB for about $20.  If you have USB 2.0 (which is likely, unless your old computer is older than 10 years), the maximum raw data rate is 480 Mbps with rates effective data around 20-30 MB/s for the memory sticks.

    At 20 MB/s, 12 GB should be transferred in about 600 seconds or 10 minutes.
