View Full Version : Extremely long restart time after win 8.1 update

01-30-2014, 04:36 AM
I have a G750JH-DB71 and so far so good, except for one thing that's really bugging me.

After I updated to 8.1, every restart takes literally minutes. At first I was cycling the power on and off, then decided to wait and see what would happen and it finally does reboot, just takes forever !!!

I've messed around w/ bios settings, services, etc and nothing has helped.

It almost seems like it goes into some sleep state and then finally decides to wake up.

Also, after I shut it down, then come back the next day, I have to do the double power cycle to get it to boot.

If anyone has similar problems and could give me some help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Try turning off Bluetooth before restarting and see if that fixes the issue.

that's coz you upgraded before updating all your drivers first

get them here:


then choose windows 8.1 from the drop down list
