Lenovo Z510 slow windows 8.1 booting

2014-07-12, 9:04 AM

Hi,

 

I bought lenovo z510 recently and liked its performance. But from last few days am facing issue when windows 8.1 boots .ie., when i power on my laptop i see "lenovo log" for more than 15 mintutes and sometimes windows doesnt start at all. I have to restart few times manually with power button to see the windows screen.

 

Initially i thought it is due to windows update, but even after I turned off update, am facing same issue. My laptop is hardly a month old and it is very frustating to see this happening :(.

 

Please help.

 

Regads,

Deeraj Shetty

You can try uninstalling your third party antivirus program and just use Windows defender for a start. Then update Windows defender and perform a full scan of your unit. If there are no virus /spam etc detected you can start doing a disk cleanup and defragmentation through the control panel.

 

See if the speed improves after doing the above.

I also have a problem with windows 8.1 taking far time to load, even tho i have a high powered laptop. Recently watched a video on SSD, one that comes with my y510p and a better samsung one, speed was stupidly different, if you have SSD, i would recommend getting that changed.

Lenovo y510p - Intel Quad-core 4th gen i7-4700MQ @3.40Ghz - 16GB RAM - 1TB HDD 8GB SSD - 1080p FHD - Nvidia 755m SLI

Hi All,

 

Sorry for the delayed response. Thanks for the answers. Issue got resovled by below steps:

 

1. Uninstall 3rd party Antivirus

2. Update and scan using windows defender

3. Update and install all latest windows updates.

 

Now my laptop boots within 10-15 secs at max and shutdow at 6 sec flat :) :)...yahoooo..
