  • How To Boot A Windows 7 PC Up Faster

    BOOTING UP WINDOWS 7 WITH MULTIPLE CORES AT START UP



    MOST PEOPLE DONT NO THAT WHEN YOU BOOT YOUR SYSTEM UP ON VISTA OR 7
    THAT YOUR SYSTEM WILL ONLY BOOT UP WITH 1 CORE EVEN IF YU HAVE 2 4 OR
    6 CORE BUT NOW IM GONNA SHOW YOU A LIL TRICK THAT WILL SHAVE ABOUT 5 TO
    10SECONDS OFF YOUR START UP TIME ITS QUICK EASY AND SIMPLE JUST FOLLOW
    THESE STEPS AND YOU SHOULD BE DONE IN LIKE 2 MINS!!!!!

    THEN MSCONFIG WILL COME UP THEN
    YOU WANT TO GO TO THE BOOT TAB
    THEN ADVANCED OPTIONS...


    THEN A NEW TAB WILL COME UP TICK THE (number of processors) BOX
    THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CHOOSE THE OPTION JUST BELOW HOW MANY
    PROCESSORS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BOOT UP WITH...

    SO SET IT TO HOW MANY CORES YOU HAVE EOTHER 2 4 OR 6...


    THEN CLICK OK THEN APPLY AND THEN AN OPTION WILL COME UP SYSTEM NEEDS A
    RESTART DO IT LATER OR WHEN EVER SUITS YOU ...


    THAT WILL MAKE YOUR SYSTEM BOOT UP MUCH FASTER......



    (click your start menu)... type in search msconfig then click (ENTER)

        And buy a SSD. It reduces the boot time significantly.

          This made my boot time so fast! I enabled 4 cores instead of 1! Thanks a lot!

          Weird that only few people are happy about this or thanked.... Maybe it's because people knew this, but anyways I did not know, so thanks!

                  Is it that effective? Can you tell me how much time do you need to boot up your PC now? How many seconds are reduced? Thank you very much. I want to have a try.

                    According to this link:

                    Using System Configuration

                    "System Configuration is a tool that can help identify problems that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. You can start Windows with common services and startup programs turned off and then turn them back on, one at a time. If a problem doesn't occur when a service is turned off, but does occur when that service is turned on, then the service could be the cause of the problem.

                    System Configuration is intended to find and isolate problems, but it's not meant as a startup management program. To permanently remove or turn off programs or services that run at startup, see Uninstall or change a program.
                    The following table describes the tabs and options that are available in System Configuration:

                    -- snip --

                    Advanced boot options:
                    • Number of processors. Limits the number of processors used on a multiprocessor system. If the check box is selected, the system boots using only the number of processors in the drop-down list."


                    It sounds like this option is just to facilitate the testing of individual cores on a processor i.e. you force a multiprocessor system to use only the number of processors that you choose via the drop-down list to troubleshoot performance problems and/or defective CPUs.

                    Ostensibly, any speed increase may just be a placebo effect.

                      4 CORES


                      Open time before any programs has launched
                      36 sec

                      Fully open
                      1 min 12 sec

                      close time
                      15 sec

                      1 CORE

                      Open time before any programs has launched
                      41 sec

                      Fully open
                      1 min 21 sec

                      close time
                      15 sec



                      So for my computer this definitely worked. My laptop has 2.2 ghz normally, but it has turbo boost option up to 3.0ghz and I think that the turbo boost might get activated when this uses 4 cores.

                        This myth has been debunked numerous times. The link I pointed out comes straight from Microsoft--this tool is for troubleshooting performance/developer use to debug applications by limiting the amount of cores available. By default, all cores are used.

                        Any timings you provide are anecdotal.

                          It worked for me, so it doesn't matter how many times this myth has been "broken".

                            Thank you for the information you provided. May be it is the turbo boost that helps. It doesn't work well for me.

                            Haha, I thought of Bootvis when you said " this tool".
