I have a Dell Inspiron 15R SE, its configuration:
- Intel Core i7-3632QM 2.2 gHz
- 8GB DDR3
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ Bluetooth 4.0/ USB 3.0/ RJ-45
- 1 TB HDD + 32 GB SSD(mSata)
I just formatted it 5 times last 24h, all those times the best booting time was about 5 minutes, 5 MINUTES to a recently formatted laptop with that configuration!
I have bought it 2 years ago, and used quite a lot, but never dropped it on the ground or damaged it.
MY SSD is currently with problems you can view another post I made here: How can I restore RAID 0 on my DELL laptop?
So, depending ONLY on my HDD, it shouldn't take too long to boot!
My read and write speed its OK, its getting up to 45Mb/s, and writing about 30Mb/s.
I have absolute nothing besides the O.S on my HDD and its taking this long to boot, what can it be?
