We’ve recently recommended you to get an SSD drive, if you have problems with slow boot in Windows 10. But if your computer boots slow, even after you got an SSD, that could be a problem. Fortunately, not kind of problem that we cannot solve.
SSD drives absolutely beat HDDs when ti comes to booting speed, as some SSDs (in the combination with right hardware) are able to start your computer in a couple of seconds. And since we know how SSDs are fast, if booting your computer takes a little bit more time, you should know that something’s not right, and it needs to be solved. So, check out our solutions for slow boot in Windows 10 on Solid State Drive.
What to do if Windows 10 boots slow on SSD
Solution 1 – Disable ULPS
Disabling ULPS is probably the most common and the most effective solution for this problem, judging by the amount of positive feedback. ULPS stands for Ultra Low Power States, and it’s some kind of energy saver for your graphics card. For example, when your computer ‘goes to sleep,’ your graphics card will do the same, so you’ll need to wait a few seconds more on your next startup, for your graphics card to ‘wake up.’ Disabling ULPS will improve both wake up and startup performances, so this solution should be your first call.
Here’s what you need to do to disable ULPS feature on your Windows 10:
- Go to Search, type regedit, and open Registry Editor
- To avoid digging through numerous registry paths, just go to Edit, Find, enter EnableUlps and press Enter
- Now, double-click on EnableUlps and change its value to 0
After performing this workaround, try to restart your computer, and it will boot at least little faster. On the other hand, if booting is still slow, try some of the solutions below.
Solution 2 – Change Power Options to High Performance
If disabling ULPS didn’t do much, you can try with changing the power options to high performance. Here’s exactly what you need to do:
- Go to Search, type power management and open Power Management
- In Power Management window, choose High Performance plan
This should change your power plan, which will affect your next startup, and hopefully reduce the boot time.
Solution 3 – Disable Unnecessary Services on Startup
And at last, you can try with disabling unnecessary services and programs and startup. Just go to Task Manager, open Startup tab, and see which processes need to be disabled. Additionally to all of this, you can run your antivirus, and check if you have some malicious software on your computer, just in case.
