Solved How to speed up booting time

June 5, 2015 at 06:58:52
Specs: windowss, 2.2 GHz
I replaced my laptop hard drive with a SSD hard drive. Everything works fine but I use my laptop as a desktop with a external monitor and USB keyboard and mouse.
When I boot with the monitor connected to the laptop + USB mouse/keyboard it takes 90 seconds to boot.
When I boot without anything connected it takes 30 seconds to boot. How to configure to boot faster with the external monitor?
More details: The monitor is connected with VGA cable

You didn't say whether the Mouse/Keyboard were wireless. If so it might be worth trying corded devices (optical mouse), which I find quite satisfactory. The drivers for those, if any, are usually smaller. Not that I recall noticing a delay when I used to use wireless.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"with the monitor connected + USB mouse/keyboard"

Is it back to 30 seconds if you just remove the monitor?

Thank you for answering, after running several tests I found out that the problem is with the usb keyboard. I tried two different keyboards uninstalled/reinstall drive but not luck. I am going to use it as it is, thanks again.

At the end of the day, is a full keyboard worth the extra minute to boot? I would think so.

You could also disconnect the keyboard, boot, then connect the keyboard. May boot faster then. If the laptop is installing drivers for the keyboard each time then you may not be fully updated with Windows Updates.

You didn't list which version of Windows you are running or what model keyboard. Listing both may shed some light.
