    Laptop takes forever to start and hardrive-ikon blinking (W10)

    Hi!
    My laptop takes forever to start, and the HD-ikon is blinking so I suppose it has to do with that? Could it be that the PC has too many start-up-programs? (I wouldn`t know what to delete, if so!) I also thinks it takes to long for it to shut down.

    Regards Ingjerd

    Hi Ingjerd,

    Please download Autoruns, Autoruns for Windows - Windows Sysinternals | Microsoft Docs.
    • Extract the zip and run Autoruns or Autoruns64.
    • In Autoruns, click File and choose Save.
    • Save it as ARN on your desktop, this could take a while.
    • Go to your desktop, right click the ARN file and choose Send to and select Compressed (zipped) folder.


    Upload the zip folder.

    I feel really idiotic, but I can`t see any button to let me upload the zip folder

    I think one attachment didn`t get sent, so I try again. (I think that is the one you are missing. If not just tell me to do the instructions again.

    There aren't many startup items, but I would disable ASUS, HP and Cyberlink items. Also, if you don't need Java I would recommend to remove it.

    What laptop model do you have?

    I have a HP-printer. Can I delete all other HP "things"?

    You can delete all HP items, even the one for your HP printer. It doesn't need to start at boot to work.
