Just bought myself an ASUS UX32VD and it was running fine for about a week, installed AVG and some other programs (VLC, utorrent etc) computer still running fine. Then I decided to try Civilization V on it and had some issues installing it, finally got it working, at the same time windows updater and ASUS updater is running in background (extremely slow internet here) the next boot after this takes about ten minutes and the computer keeps freezing on easy tasks, VLC or Mozilla constantly.
What I've tried so far.
-Looking for driver updates, nothing found.
-Do a system restore to before the CIV 5 install, no change in performance
-Did a clean install of win7 with all of ASUS updates, still 10min boot
-replaced ram with a new 8gb one, still 10min boot
-replaced HDD with a 120gb SSD and made a new install of win7, still 10min boot.
-updated all the drivers from ASUS again, still 10min boot.
tried memory diagnostic tool, says no errors, tried running the windows experience index, but it fails to complete.
ran event viewer as some forum suggested... lots of errors, but how to fix???
about ready to tear my hair out or blow the laptop to pieces.
What else could possibly cause this boot time? event log.jpg 337.54KB 18 downloads
edit: the UX32VD comes with a second SSD of 32gb, tried to initialize this in disk management, but only get the message "The drive cannot find the sector requested" it's not in the boot priority at all, I removed it to see if that helped, but no change, still wondering if this error can be connected somehow.
