How to Speed Up Windows Boot Time
System BIOS Changes
One of the first places to help speed boot time in Windows is to make some simple changes to thesystem BIOS. The BIOS or Basic Input/Output System is a set of instructions and commands built into themotherboard that allows the computer to know what type of hardware is connected and how tocommunicate with that hardware. You'll first have to gain access to the BIOS setup screen to make anychanges. Do not make changes to the system settings in the BIOS lightly, one mistake can render thecomputer unbootable and cause more problems than its worth. For this reason, do not attempt makingchanges to the system BIOS unless you are willing to accept the risk along with it. With that said, you'llwant to follow the directions below and make some simple changes to speed up the boot process.1) You must start with the computer completely off, not in sleep or hibernation mode. Then turn thecomputer on.2) Enter the system BIOS screen by the manufacturers suggestion. Depending on the computer, this mayinvolve pressing the DEL key, pressing F1, Pressing F10, holding down CTRL-ALT-S, or a variety of otherkeystrokesto get to the BIOS screen. For a more complete list of keystrokes to enter the BIOS screen,visitMichael Steven's page on the subject. 3) Once in the BIOS setup, look for a BOOT menu and select it with your keyboard arrow keys, Tab, andEnter.4) In most modern BIOS screens, you'll find an option for Quick Boot. Enable this to skip memory testsand other minor Power On Self Tests (POST).
