Yoga 2 Pro Slow Boot

2014-02-02, 17:20 PM

My yoga 2 pro always took around 25 seconds to boot up. In the first 15 seconds the power led is on but the screen is black. When I press the novo button it also takes 15 seconds for the menu to appear.This has been happening since I bought it, but now I saw in a review the PC turning on in 8 seconds, so I'm pretty sure this is not normal. Has this happened  to anyone else?

For me a boot-up takes about 8 seconds (i7/8GB memory/256 GB SSD). 25 seconds is indeed long.

 

How are you shutting it down, using the standard menu method? it sounds like one of 2 things: 1) A fast shutdown/boot isn't automatically happening when you select shutdown option (this is supposed to be automaticly enabled). Take a look for a hiberfil.sys file in the C:\ folder. It should be there and fairly large with a recent timestamp. This file holds your kernel state when you shut down to accelerate boot-up. 2) Have you installed any system monitoring software like the intel or hwinfo? I had done this it it greatly increased the boot up time probably due to a driver timing out. If so, uninstall and see if that helps.

 

Just timed my Y2P. From a cold start 8.7 seconds to start screen, from a hybrid shutdown/start, 6 seconds to start screen. So 25 seconds is long for either case.

 

Useful explanation for how fastboot works.

I'm shutting it down the normal way, and I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with windows. As I said, for 15 seconds the screen stays black and only after that does the lenovo logo actually appear and start loading windows. When I press the NOVO button the screen also stays black for 15 seconds, and that happens before I choose the option to load windows.

It's been like this ever since I got it, and I've formatted it once since but nothing has changed.

Look at the bios settings under Boot. I have the following:

Boot Mode - [UEFI]

Lenovo Fast Boot - [Enabled]

.

.

EFI

Windows Boot Manager

 

Under Security

Secure Boot - [Enabled]

Secure Boot Status - Enabled

 

Also, do you also get the same delay when you boot into the bios?

Yes, as I said when I use the novo button to go into the bios it also takes 15 seconds to get to the menu.

Does your computer seem to restart when the screen is black? Try to power cycle the computer and see what happens (keep the power button pressed for 5 sec). If that does not help, then you must have a hardware issue..

I had the same with my Y2P.  At first it booted quickly, but in the last few days it really slowed down. 

 

I tried your suggestion of the power cycle and that has taken care of the problem.  Thanks so much.

 

[15 minutes later]  Well, I just tried booting again and it is slow again.  I would appreciate any other suggestions.

Hmmm... Interesting.  Try to boot Windows into safe mode and see what happens.  To do so boot normally into Windows, hold SHIFT key pressed and click restart.  It will show you a bunch of options, go to advanced and startup settings.  I don't have a clue why this is happenning to you, but it sounds more of a software issue than anything else...

 

PS:  You may also want to try Startup Repair and see of it helps.  Another thing I remember, on a Windows 7 PC, Windows needed 15min to get past the logon screen.  The problem was a network setting somewhere in the registry, but I don't really remember the entry anymore.  Now your issue seems more complicated, since by what you are saying it is not Windows only...

Again, it has absolutely nothing to do with windows. I could format my PC and remove the OS and it would still take 15 seconds to get to the BIOS.
