I had this problem with my previous G73Sw and now also on my new G75VW

The notebook is smoking fast after boot up but if you calculate the reboot time, it takes double the time of that it takes my Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 to reboot.

Mainly, the slow down occurs during POST, the screen sort of like hangs for 5-7 seconds on the Asus Logo then continues to boot normally as if it were looking for something or some boot media even though I have put the Windows Partition Manager as the first boot device...

Does anyone know any trick to speed up the reboot process?

Mine takes like 45 secs to shut down, reboot, POST, load windows, and back to desktop

This is on a FRESH Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Install with the drivers from ASUS (latest ones) except for the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver I installed the latest one 11.2. Windows is installed on the SSD offcourse

My lenovo IdeaPad Y570 which has lower specs (mainly an i7 QM2670 / 8 GB RAM) reboots in 29-30 seconds

Here is the reboot tool I use to calculate the time

Download Reboot Timer (http://www.mediafire.com/?21qnjl1h2r3lib0)

Where is your SSD in the boot order?

I would also try uninstalling the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver to see if it changes behavior.

SSD is first, like I said, the problem is not the performance in Windows that is slowing down the boot process. It is the hanging on that ASUS logo forever....

Can you run the utility and tell me what is your Reboot time please?

Thanks

Unfortunately, that utility doesn't run on my phone...

Consider my recommendation to uninstall the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. There are reports it may actually SLOW performance on some SSD's (see http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showpost.php?p=505451&postcount=51n). It is possible this may include boot times.

That would require that my notebook was here with me, but alas, it is not...

WOW!!! that's amazing man

Few questions:

1) Do you have Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver installed? If yes, which version?

2) What are your exact BIOS BOOT Settings

Thank you

If MsgResult = vbcancel then WScript.Quit
Wsh.RegWrite KeyA & "Times", left(Time,8), "REG_SZ"

There is no option in BIOS to set the SSD to the first boot device, there is the BD-Rom drive and the Windows Manager

I have the Windows MAnager as my first boot device

what can I do?

Gee 23 seconds thats good, I have still got all the ASUS stuff installed that could be the overhead.

1) Do you have Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver installed? If yes, which version?

Version 2.5.1.0


2) What are your exact BIOS BOOT Settings
Not sure which ons you want, i display the logo with no sound, and have the (Windows Manager) set as the boot drive, by the way in brackets it Say's (Po: Intel SSD..........) Therefore it is the SSD.

hope that helps a bit.

Mine restarts in 32secs but a cold start takes between 1.30 - 2mins. It finishes post in 8secs and after that is where it kinda "slows down"....after the windows logo starts.....then a blank screen for 1m30 some secs.....
Frustrates the **** out of me, that's even with an OCZ SSD installed as boot drive.

Ohh yea it's also a fresh install (although been using it for a while)
