Just recently purchased a new computer. i7 2600k CPU, GTX550 Ti graphics card and 32GB RAM. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit Pro and am booting from an SSD. I have an audio interface connected via USB2 port on boot up. I've seen videos online where it can take about 25 seconds to boot win 7 with SSD but I am getting no where near that.
Could I please get some suggestions or solutions to this problem.
SSD is a Corsair Force Series 3 90GB. I've updated my motherboard with the latest drivers. Couldn't find any firmware downloads for the SSD. How do I run a Memtest? I'll check it out anyway. Oh, and I'll be using my computer for music production. 32GB is a bit overkill but I will be using Huge VSTi's (Hollywood Strings is over 300GB by itself) so hopefully it allows for a smooth music composition process without having to record tracks separately.
If I had to guess he probably unplugged the USB device....I have seen USB devices plugged in upon boot up cause some screwy things to happen.
That or the system was installing\configuring some windows updates in the background or something similar. Windows has a way of not telling you when it is doing something during the boot process instead of giving you a prompt to let you know something is going on !
Thanks a lot. I'll try the windows update. I didn't want to connect my new computer to the net but it looks like i'll have to...
edit: seems the latest drivers and important updates do nothing to the boot times...
