X220T lag during startup even after factory recovery.

2011-06-16, 1:23 AM

Hi,

 

I recently tried out two separate X220T's and noticed the same issue during boot.

The X220 Tablet I own has 8 GB of RAM and i7-2620M with an Intel X25M-G2 160 GB SSD (with latest BIOS and latest drivers installed).

The previous X220 Tablet that I replaced (which had dead pixels, an non-working webcam and a warped plastic panel also exhibited the same behavior and also had slow boot times when I used the HDD).

 

I recovered the OS using factory recover disk on the SSD and checked that it has correct alignment.

However, during boot, I noticed sometimes it would hang at the welcome screen for more than 30 seconds before it proceeds. Also, when it passes the welcome screen, when I open firefox, for around the first minute or so, whenever I type, the keys would lag.

 

This is my work around, I literally went through msconfig and checked each service 1 by 1 to see what's wrong.

When I first, turned off all service and left only the basic Microsoft services on, it booted really fast and had none of the problems I described above.

So I went back in checking each Lenovo service and saved and booted individually (I rebooted at least twice for each process to make sure it wasn't just a fluke and I factory recovered twice nice).  It boiled down to these services that were causing the hang and the keyboard lag.

1. Power Manager DBC Service

2. Hyperw7 Service

3. Lenovo Auto Scroll

4. Screen Reading Optimizing Service

5. System Update

6. Lenovo Doze Mode Service

 

I was wondering if anyone noticed the same lag issues? Or is there a way to fix this?

 

I spent two hours narrowing these things down, hopefully if you are experiencing the same issues, turning off these processes might help.

 

In addition, if I only install Windows 7 64-bit Pro with the basic driver installations on the X220 Tablet, it does not show any of these problems.

 

It's not just lag with the SSD, but extremely agonizing boot times with the original HDD.

jyeah,

 

Can you please try uninstalling "RapidBoot" in "Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features" and report back as to whether this solves your problem?

I have noticed a similiar issue at the BIOS screen. 45 sec lag time... I have upgraded and downgraded the BIOS nothing seems to make a difference.

I'm testing it right now and it seems like the issue is fixed after RapidBoot is uninstalled, so now I can have all my startups and still bootup in around 45 seconds.

Why does RapidBoot cause this issue?

RapidBoot is supposed to make your system boot faster by delaying unnecessary services and drivers, and starting them after the system becomes idle when booting is complete.  There have been a few reports of RapidBoot accidently delaying critical services and drivers, or causing it's own delay like what you are seeing.  The software team is currently working on RapidBoot 1.1 to fix these issues and I think it will be released soon.  Until then, if RapidBoot 1.0 is causing problems like what you reported, I recommend uninstalling it.  In most cases RapidBoot works correctly but there are some cases where it doesn't.  Sorry for your inconvenience.

My X220T does the same, i7, 4 gb ram, and even with a 5400 rpm drive it should not be this slow. I tried your fix and it didnt too much for me, my computer still stays at the welcome screen for a bit over 20 seconds and gives me the keyboard lad. I think I will try checking all the services one by one like you said you did, but that will have to wait a few days (exam time :/). Worst comes to worst, I will reformat with "standard" win7 pro, and install the drivers manually. I'll let you know if I find anything new.

I have the same problem

RapidBoot is NOT installed, and my computer stays at the welcome screen for 2x secs.

Maybe trying installing Rapidboot and then uninstalling it might help? Just a thought.

 

I know rapidboot causes some issues and if it's not installed and your computer still is running slow, maybe there's some other services. You'll have to look through your startup applications processes and determine one by one.

 

First step is, go to start->run->msconfig->click on diagnostic startup to see if the problem goes away.

If it does, then reclick on normal startup -> then go to services and disable any non-microsoft services first. Then re-enable a few services (let's say 3-5 services) to start, if the problem occurs with one of these services, then just keep it disabled.
