How long does it take Windows XP Home to boot?

My Windows XP Home sp3 has slowed "WAY" down in the last 3-5 days. At the moment, the average bootup time is around 4-5 minutes at most. But sometimes it can take as long as 20 minutes just for the logon screen to appear! I have Microsoft Security Essentials and System Guard disabled (using SysGuard tool), but that didn't help at all. Any ideas?

Here's how I booted up my machine today: press the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys together to bring up the Task Manager. Then click on the "End task" button for both "svchost.exe" and "wuauserv.exe". Once they're end tasked, close the Task Manager.

I also noticed that my security certificate for has expired, so I decided to update it. But when I went to install the new certificate through Control Panel -> Certificates -> Computer Account, it said that the private key corresponding to the old certificate had been deleted from the registry. So now I need to get a new certificate issued by a certifying authority that will allow me to create self-signed certificates. I'll keep you posted if I find anything else interesting after checking some other folders.

What is the average boot time for Windows 10?

Reactions (4) 3.5 minutes seemed to be a long time. If there aren't too many processes running, Windows 10 should boot in seconds. I have three laptops, and they all boot in less than 30 seconds. However, my desktop computer takes about 40 seconds to boot because it has more components than the other computers.

If you're using Windows 10 Home, your system will boot up to the sign-in screen in 3 minutes 59 seconds. For Pro users, it's only increased by a few seconds to 5 minutes 19 seconds. Either way, don't expect your PC to run for hours after turning it off. Even if you don't use your computer for days at a time, it's still going to shut down eventually whether it's plugged in or not.

The boot time varies depending on which device you use but most devices can be ready to use within 3 minutes. Tablets and smartphones usually take a little longer because they don't have as many resources as traditional PCs. That being said, we've seen Android tablets boot up to Google Now within 15 minutes before!

Using Windows 10 Mobile, your phone or tablet will be ready to use after just over 2 minutes. This includes powering on the device as well as signing into Microsoft Account.

Windows 10 IoT Core doesn't require any power to start up.

How long does it take for a new computer to startup?

Booting up your computer takes anywhere from 20 seconds to 5 minutes. The boot-up time is determined by the CPU speed and storage capacity. If your computer has a strong CPU (such as a Core i7 or i5) and fast storage, the start up time is reduced (by seconds). If you have a slow CPU or old storage, then the start up time is increased (by seconds).

The start up time includes loading all of the operating systems files, programs, and settings that are stored on your computer's hard drive or other storage device. Thus, the longer it takes you to enter your password, the more time it takes your computer to start up.

On average, it takes about 3 minutes for a desktop computer to start up, and under 30 seconds for a laptop computer to start up.

The start up time can be reduced by storing all of your important documents, music, and videos on a separate storage device (such as a USB flash drive), so they're available when you need them. This reduces the work the computer needs to do while it's starting up, and allows you to use your computer right away instead of waiting for files to load.

An alternative way to reduce the start up time is by using an SSD (Solid State Drive).

Why does Windows XP take so long to start up?

If you've been running Windows XP for a time, you may have noticed that it takes longer for your computer to load up. This is due to the fact that apps are adding themselves to your startup, and they all need to load before you can use the computer. Simply follow the easy steps below, and your computer will boot up much quicker!

How fast should my PC boot?

How long should my computer take to boot up? With a modern operating system, it takes no more than a minute. Normal boot time should be less than 30 seconds from the moment the operating system begins loading to a functional desktop. Purchase extra RAM and an SSD disk, then clone the operating system to it to boost performance.

If your computer takes more than five minutes to boot up, you're doing something wrong. It's not the end of the world if it takes longer than five minutes, but you should try to make it faster by following our advice below.

The first thing you need to know about boot times is that they vary depending on what's going on inside the machine when the clock starts ticking. If there are many applications running in memory (i.e., not saved to disk) then the boot process will cause these applications to be closed before the user sees any change in boot time. When all is said and done, a few moments shouldn't cost a company too much in terms of customer satisfaction.
