How to: Speed up your computer's boot time

Save to 0 hits!

One of the questions I am often asked is how to speed up the boot time(time Windows takes to load or boot).

There are a variety of factors (both hardware and software) involved in lowering the amount of time it takes for Windows to load.

Here are some tweaks that will make your computer boot a little faster:

1) Instead of Hard Disk for Operating System, Use Solid State Drive (SSD)

What is SSD ?

2) Add or upgrade RAM. RAM is pretty cheap these days, so if you're running low, there's no reason not to stock up and make your computer run a little smoother.

What is RAM ?

3) Keep antivirus up to date. This is more of a preventative measure than an actual boot-speeding tip, but if you ever do get malware, it's sure to slow your computer's boot time.

You already know, what antivirus is :)

4) Remove unnecessary fonts.Windows has loaded fonts at startup and slowed down the boot time. This is less of a problem than it used to be, but it can still slow you down a bit. Windows 7 loads over 200 fonts at startup; even more if you've installed Microsoft Office.

5) Disable Unused Hardware.Your computer loads a lot of drivers when it first starts up, some of which you might not even use. Head into the Device Manager from the Start Menu's search box, and look for anything you aren't using
