I thought I had a fairly speedy computer. BootRacer reports booting between 21 and 32 seconds. Why does it take 5 seconds to load Excel 2007? I saw a HP I7 ivy yesterday running a 2tb hard drive (no SSD) loading Excel in less than .5 sec. What gives?


My Rig:

F120 SSD
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
12.0 GB Ram
4095 MB Total available graphics memory
INTEL_ DX58SO__ 12.0 GB RAM Win 7 64-bit operating system 4
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 4095 MB 1024 MB 0 MB 3071 MB 8.17.12.8562 1920x1080 1920x1080 DirectX 10

WEI 7.5

Excel is on the SSD. OS and everything is on the SSD except Pictures Music and Video.

Yes, AHCI. I doubt it is the SSD as the HP computer I mentioned in the first post was an HDD with almost instant loading.

What benchmarks should I be doing to eliminate possible issues/causes
Does anyone have a similar set up that can run some tests to compare?

As in a new excel spreadsheet, or is this a large and complicated spreadsheet?

Good question.

This is a blank spreadsheet.

In my case it was my contact manager's (Act 2011 Pro) com add-in slowing down loading of Excel. Now it loads instantly. Thanks!
