    Might be worth your while to check what programmes are in Startup.
    Open "Task Manager".....click on "Startup".....then disable any that you don't need for starting the computer.

    Good advice from dencal, startup programs are the most likely culprit. A better tool for this task than the task manager is Autoruns for Windows

    Other things to check :

    * Control Panel > Device Manager. Make sure there's no device with a yellow question mark, it indicates a problem with a missing or wrong driver, which can slow down booting. It's also a good idea to go to your PC's manufacturer's site and download/install all the latest drivers for your machine. Do the same for your graphics card.

    * Check that the Fast Boot option is turned on : Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    * Check if some non-Microsoft services are running (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > System Configuration > Services > Check Hide all MS services).

    * Uninstall OEM applications, which are mainly bloatware and might slow down your PC. If an AV other than Windows Defender is installed, update it or think about using the built-in AV.

    * Scan your PC for malware

    45 seconds ain't bad man. I can normally think of something to do if I forgot to put my coffee on when I woke up.

    What you could do is run the Windows Performance Investigator - I'll check it if you do and upload the etl.

    Hi,

    If I were you I would check hard disk condition (using GSmartControl :: Home & News or similar software). Sometime before they get broken they slow down. Fast approach would be to open Task Manager, check activity and average response time. If first is at 100% most of the time and second is in thousands of ms, then I would suspect hard disk failure.

    A couple of things worth checking.....What anti-virus are you using?.....In Control Panel check System and Security to see if Windows Defender and another anti-virus are both working....If so turn one of them OFF.
    Are you using Avast Free?.....If so uninstall....then reinstall from the Avast website and not through the Windows Store.

    after 3 hours


    Now , i have came across a strange thing. When i uncheck fast boot option in win 8 , and then i try to start windows , the boot time is still the same as when it is checked. I tried this option 6 times. And another thing , i saw on youtube , as people with this particular PC , Lenovo y50-70 do boot time under 14 sec.
    After 3 hours of literally ****ing with this pc , i managed to cut down the boot time to circa 35 sec. Still , thats crazy amout of time. And still , the fast boot option has no effect what so ever on the pc. My pc that is 7 years old , and got win 8 , without ssd ofc , boots in 15 sec. I dont get this.... This laptop cost me 1000 dollars....... why me....

    It's clearly annoying you Adam but perhaps you should relax a little and let someone help you out.

    The most obvious would be to download and run windows Performance Investigator.

    If you really don't want to do that then ranting isn't going to help. You may as well guess.

    Adam....Do read the following review....it explains that startup takes about 30 seconds and even longer the more apps you have installed....you would get a much faster startup with an SSD.....Also take into account an i7 processor only runs at 2.4 MHz on a laptop as opposed to 3.5 MHz on a desktop.
