How fast should WIN 7 (64) PRO LOAD UP?

i7 Intel 4770 3.4GHz / MSI B85-G41 PC Mate MB / 16GB DDR3 (1600) / WIN7 64 PRO

I recently rebuilt my system and this time, I bought a Samsung 840 SDD 250GB Boot drive, because I hear it's soooo fast, with programs opening up much faster than the regular hard drives.

Although Photoshop opens within seconds, but from the time I turn my computer on, until I see the MSI Logo Boot screen is 35 seconds. Then it takes about one and a half minutes to fully get to the desktop screen.

Is this a normal boot time from when I turn on the computer to the windows desktop? TWO MINUTES????

I thought the new Solid state drives were supposed to be lightning faster than the regular HDD's.

Thank you!

There are a couple of ways to tackle your problem.
Obviously create a System Restore point first. And have the install DVD just in case you mess something up.

Use Autoruns and un-tick stuff in the logon and service (Be careful) tabs.


run Windows Performance Analyzer.
Microsoft Virtual Academy.
Youtube video.

Hope this helps.

**Edit: Fixed the Microsoft Virtual Academy Link.
