    Boot time suddenly very slow - takes some 5 min to boot :(

    Hi all !
    Suddenly my boot time on W7 is so slow that it takes up to 5 min.
    Even after boot, the HD keeps blinking for a while and can not do anything for some more minutes...
    Can someone give me some advice ?

    info : I already did scan with CC Cleaner, Avast, malwarebytes

    Device : Compaq CQ71-420ED windows 7 Home Premium

    Hello! I only want to see the attributes tab for now.

    GSmartControl
    Follow the instructions below to test your hard drive health with GSmartControl:



    • Download GSmartControl and save it on your Desktop;
    • Execute gsmartcontrol.exe; Let the install complete and launch the programme.
    • Identify your drive in the list, and double-click on it to bring up it's window (usually you'll find your drive by it's size or it's brand name);
    • Go in the Perform Tests tab, then select Extended Self-test in the Test type drop-down list and click on Execute (this test can take a few hours to complete);
    • Once the test is over, the results will be displayed at the bottom of the window. Please copy and paste these results in your next reply;
    • Also, go in the Attributes tab and if you have any entries highlighted in red or pink, take a screenshot of the GSmartControl window and attach it in your next reply;

    Likewise!

    Your HDD appears to be failing and overheating. Please urgently backup your data and replace the failing drive. If you have the budget, with an SSD.

    temperature is always a bit high because I have it on my legs.
    But the HDD is a total loss you think ?
    Can it be that some sectors are already corrupt ?

    Yes, some are corrupt. That's why I said you should urgently backup.

    Ok I will thanks!
    Can I replace it with a 500gb SSD ? or what do you propose to do?
    Do I have to install everything back on my laptop again ? Windows and all ? Or can I take a full image backup from my laptop on another drive and after replacing the HDD, reflash it ?

    Re: Boot time suddenly very slow - takes some 5 min to boot :(

    A 500 GB SSD would be ideal. I would recommend a fresh install (backup all the important items onto an external hard drive if you have one). I would advise against making an image because of the damage that may be present due to the bad HDD.

    I would not risk it. If you can, replace the drive as this one can no longer be seen as reliable.

    New problem :
    yesterday I did total backup of all my files. Also I ran a disc check overnight to possibly fix that block error from above.
    In the morning all seemed ok and I could enter my password and boot OK and work on it.
    After some time I closed the laptop and restarted it and I could not boot normaly...there was a bar underneath saying loading files and then it came to a next screen.
    There's a startup repair running now for the second time, since the first time it didn't work and directed me to the HP help setup...
    Ans now the startup repair keeps on running....
    Boot time suddenly very slow - takes some 5 min to boot :(-image6221658262752089307-jpg

    Can you guide me on that furtheron pls ?

    EDIT : laptop rebooted BUT to the same procedure from startup repair. So doesn't seem to work....
