    Long 5-10 boot times on windows 8.1.

    In the last couple of months the time it takes my laptop to show the start screen, I have tried numerous ways to help increase the like disabling unimportant services and disabling some startup programs.

    Is that 5-10 minutes?

    If so, try disconnecting everything from the laptop, like any USB or Bluetooth devices.

    Cleanup the accumulated trash from the hard drive using CCleaner.

    Also, use CCleaner/Tools/Startup then click on Save to text file... at lower right. Post contents of the saved startup.txt here please.

    Win8.1 Pro, Desktop Mode

    I should probably do this too, as my pc takes quite a while to boot up too.
    Oddly enough, my laptop boots lightning quick.
