Why's My Windows Machine Taking So Long to Boot Up?

Episode 1755 (1:25:00)

Dan from Lake Forest, CA
Windows 10

Dan is a gamer and has been having issues with Windows 10. He is having issues with the computer taking longer and longer to start up. Leo says that ironically, having a "fast start" will slow boot-up times down when he has an SSD. With Fast Start enabled, it uses a hibernation file and it causes issues with solid-state drives. So it's best to disable fast start. Windows key, then type power options. Once in the Power Options Control Panel, he can choose "change settings that are currently unavailable," and then turn off fast start. That should fix it.
