Home built computer takes at least 30 mins on windows loading screen upon startup

Hey everyone,
The other day my computer randomly crashed and told me to insert boot disk. I shut it off, opened the case, wiggled a few things around and it finally started up again. It went through a disk check, took extremely long at the windows loading screen (I thought this was normal since it just did a disk check),but it finally started up again and I thought I was good to go. Just in case, I shut it off and back on to see if everything would go smoothly and sure enough it didn't. It started normally at my asrock motherboard screen but after 5 seconds on that screen it switches to the windows 7 logo loading screen and stays there for at least 40 minutes before my desktop shows up. I have a 120gb SSD which my os is installed on and before this took 10 seconds max to boot up. I don't think it's a problem with the SSD because when it does boot up everything installed on it runs super fast. I think windows is doing some sort of scan or something but have no idea how to stop it.

Thanks in advance everyone,

  1. Part list will help a million, as well as some close up pics of the MoBo and parts, just a few pics if possible.
  2. Hey, it the probably just resolved it self after my post a few weeks back but it seems to be back now. Working on a part list and pics. In the meantime here is the bootlog. This log is from a boot when it only took about 5 minutes to start up. It's still usually around 40 - 50. I've tried startup repair but I can't even get that to open. When I notice that it's going to take a long time I usually just reboot.

  6. You could try this to verify your SSD.


    The other thing is to boot into Windows Safe Mode to see if you have the same issue. If you do not it could be one of your drivers. Think of a driver update you might have done at the time this started.
