ALL brand new from Amazon. I even bought anti-static wrist bands. Everything looked perfect, except when I started it up it took over 4 minutes to start up!! I was like maybe cus i didnt install drivers. I installed the latest Intel, Nvidia, ASUS and Crucial Drivers from theri websites Shutdown took less than 5 seconds. Start up took over 4 minutes again! i restarted 20 times and 2 of the times it took 10 seconds to start up..? So it looks like every 20 or so times i start it up it boots up like its supposed to Notes: In the BIOS its reading the RAM as 1333 but the RAM is actually 1600 I have not overclocked anything I have not installed any programs. Control Panel Programs are 0 I have switched the SATA ports the SSD plugs into. Nothing is turned on on MSCONFIG Could it be a bad SSD? ive gone ahead and ordered a new SSD and new RAM thanks for the help More about : slow startup mcnumpty23 May 28, 2012 6:17:51 PM why order new ram? all you have to do is set the ram to 1600mhz in the bios what happens if you boot in safe mode does it still take 4 minutes? and what part of the boot process is taking all the time? before you see the windows logo or after? pianopeter55 May 28, 2012 6:22:37 PM mcnumpty23 said:why order new ram? all you have to do is set the ram to 1600mhz in the bios what happens if you boot in safe mode does it still take 4 minutes? and what part of the boot process is taking all the time? before you see the windows logo or after? ------------------------------------ RAM is not an issue, im just ordering new one just in case and returning the old ones as defective. I have not tried safe mode yet but I will Just the windows logo is taking forever. Welcome screen takes less than a second and shutdown is really fast.
