    Question Are my device partitions correct in regards to boot times?

    Hello, So long story short I was irritated about hearing my mates pcs' boot in around 15 seconds (2 drives) and 25 seconds (3 drives) and after research I realized my 5 drive system takes longer (34 seconds) due to having so many drives and it taking longer for the I think mobo to read them...

    Question MSI motherboard long BIOS time before actually starting to boot Windows

    I have this MSI motherboard (MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX) and when I start the PC it could take up to 15-20 seconds before it actually starts the booting to windows. During this time, there's pretty much no display output (expect for short pulses of black screen that might contain the "_"...

    Question Slow boot time on SSD.

    So I have a Samsung 970 Evo Plus SSD. I have been getting consistent 33 second boot times on it and I am sure it is meant to be more. I'd like to get more out of my SSD. In disk management it shows that my c drive (the ssd) is on boot. Thanks.

    Question Windows Boot Time Doubled

    So my boot time for my PC has suddenly doubled overnight. I run windows off of a Crucial MX300 275 GB and it normally boots Windows in 10 seconds. However, out of nowhere it suddenly decides to boot up in 20 seconds instead. This obviously is not a massive detriment as it still loads up...

    Question Moved from HDD to SSD, same OS, boot up is different?

    Hello all, I have a bit of a difficult question today. I'm changing over from a hard drive to an SSD and have the OS installed on both at the moment (Windows 8.1, same disc used). The strange thing is, when booting from the SSD my boot up is a little different. On the hard drive it goes to BIOS...

    WEI Score low for Samsung SSD Drive

    Not a big deal, more curious than anything... the Windows 7 Experience Index scores. I have a PC (specs in my signature) and everything gets 7.x, except the hard drive. For some reason it's a low 5 (5.1 or 5.2) but, it's a fairly new motherboard, and a Samsung SSD drive. May not be the fastest...

    Any way to reset smart data on OCZ ssd?

    The drive works fine, just the B1 attribute says the least worn block is too far from the most worn block. I'm unable to install windows 7 because of this and just want to ignore it but there is no option in my bios to do so. I've seen threads recommending a seagate utility that resets smart...
