    Windows really slow loading after bios


    Since a few weeks my laptop is slower loading.
    After the bios it takes windows twice as much time to load.
    Normally it takes about 10 seconds to load windows, but since it began it takes about 20 seconds.
    I have a few days ago flashed my bios which didn't change anything.
    No malware, it scans every day with no threats as result.

    As I'm aware of, everything of my drivers are up to date, windows update is also up to date.
    I've disabled almost everything with the startup and changed the services in msconfig the past few days a lot, but keeping everything normal gives the best performance.

    I have no other possible solutions to decrease the load time of windows.

    Do you have any external USB drives turned on during boot?

    No, I plug USB drives when I need them, which isn't common.

    You can set up a Custom View in Event Viewer to see what might be taking so long
    Click image for larger version
    Then after a few boots/days you can take a look at your event log in custom view

    Try booting to the recovery drive if you have one and run Automatic Repair - Run in Windows 8

    Is there a way to set msconfig to default settings via cmd?
