Windows 7 takes up 30+ minutes to boot ?

The computer was fine ( It's a laptop ), until it was mistakenly pulled out of the charger when it got no battery when it was in sleep mode.
I tried Statup repair, stopping services, safe mode, everything except formatting, It is as I said, takes more the 30 minutes to boot up to desktop.
Help please ! And thanks !

  1. Just restart if you haven't already. It is looking for stuff that was stored in the memory (obviousl RAM is volatile, no power, data gone). Restart (not just closing lid) usually fixes it.
  2. I've like restarted it 100 times @_@
    Btw I think I partly fixed it by updating the drivers and installing Windows update, now It takes like 3-4 minutes to boot
    But still, not as good as booting in 20 seconds like before :/
  3. Reformat
  4. Was windows updating/booting while you unplugged it? That might seriously wreck your install.

    Another thing to try... sometimes the ACL list on the pagefile gets corrupted. instead of windows erroring, it takes a long time to boot.

    1. Remove the page file and reboot.
    2. Reset the page file to what it was set at before (most likely windows managed)
    3. Reboot

    If the ACL on the pagefile was indeed the problem, the reboot in step 3 should be much faster. If not, it has some other issue.

    To change the pagefile settings...

    Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.

    In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

    Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, click Change.
