yes, AVG seams to be the cause. The driver avgmfx64.sys casues a long delay:

Contact their support for an update.

With the AVG uninstalled the pre login delay drops to 40 seconds.  Anything you can see causing that?

capture a new trace, this time with tis command:

 

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER+LATENCY+DISK_IO_INIT+DISPATCHER+FILE_IO+FILENAME -stackwalk profile+CSwitch+ReadyThread+DiskReadInit+DiskWriteInit -resultPath C:\TEMP

 

Here I see more details about hangs/waits.

First of all i'd like to give my compliments to MagicAndre, you've helped a lot of people here :D

 

Anyway: i've been experiencing some weird issue during resume from hibernation, my hiberread times are over 700 seconds. I made a trace summary (https://www.dropbox....ernate.xml?dl=0) but i can't find any details from what happens while reading the hiberfile.

Edit: boot is pretty quick by the way, nothing wrong with that.

 

By the way: windows is an almost fresh install, i've had this issue since i installed it. The drive is a Samsung 840 Evo SSD, in an (a bit old) Dell Latitude E6510 laptop.

 

When i look at my HD led it blinks slowly during a minute or 6, and after that it suddenly starts lighting up (in the same fashion as it does when writing the hiberfile), and after about 20 seconds i've got the login screen in front of me.

 

So right now i'm trying to figure out what happens during the hiberread process.

 

Here's the trace itself by the way: https://www.dropbox....POWER_1.7z?dl=0

reading the hiberfile.sys takes a long time (752 seconds):

hiberread="752062000" 

Please apply the Performance restauration Firmware to your Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500G:

 

https://www.samsung..../downloads.html

 

Does this improve it?

The trace was actually made after i did that. I also installed some of the hotfixes (not the one regarding to the large disks, both disks in the system are 500GB).

I also did a defrag with consolidating free space, after i removed the hiberfile. Then i activated hibernate again, to no avail...

Done and done, sadly no difference :(.

 

The fun thing is: i had a fresh install due to the addition of the SSD to the system. Before that hibernate has always worked.

I don't have this Samsung SSD (only Crucial MX100 and the older Samsung 830 and with both I don't have such a delay). Do you have a a 2nd PC/Laptop where you can insert the SSD and test if it also happens there?

I'm hoping I can get some answers and fix my SUPER slow boot time (15 mins!). I've done a few things found in forums including this one, but honestly a lot of it is over my head and nothing has helped so far. I'm not computer illiterate, but I'm also no programmer, so please bare with me. :}

 

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

2.20GHz VISION Technology from AMD with AMD Athlon II Dual-Core Processor

 

I've done a boot trace and attached the summary file....can someone read it for me and tell me (in layman's terms) what to do?? TIA!

 

OH and I also tried the tips on "How to speed up boot process under Windows Vista or Windows 7".

I need the ETL file to see more details.

 

xbootmgr -trace boot -traceFlags BASE+LATENCY+DISK_IO_INIT+DISPATCHER+FILE_IO+FILENAME+POWER -stackwalk profile+CSwitch+ReadyThread+DiskReadInit+DiskWriteInit  -resultPath C:\TEMP

Ok done, but the file is too big for upload?

Also some updates were done during the reboot so let me know if you need it redone.

Thanks so much for your help.

compress the ETL file as zip/RAR, upload the zip to a cloud service (OneDrive, dropbox, or a 1 Click Hoster like Zippyshare.com) and post a link here.

ok, in WinlogonInit Phase the function UpdatePerUserSystemParameters takes over 300s to finish.

 

But the underlaying issue is your 320GB 5400RPM WD3200BEVT-60A23T0 HDD. It is busy all the time. Replace it with a SSD.

THANK YOU! I'll replace and see how it goes. Can the function UpdatePerUserSystemParameters be changed or deleted?

no, this is a normal Windows function. Your slow 5400rpm drive slows down the system too much.
