Question about HP nx9420 Notebook
I've got two NX9420's, and I would like to move the same drive between the two machines. However, one machine seems to boot right up, while the other takes 2min 15sec. If it's the "same" machine, why the difference in time to boot up? Even though the machines are the same, are they THAT different? And what can I do to make it boot faster, if anything.
Things to check.
1. amount of ram in each system.
2. msconfig you can optimize the system by turning off items in start up that aren't necessary. I.E adobe, AIM, etc if you are unsure then do google research or don't remove.
3. go to my computer: properties: advanced: visual settings: then uncheck every box besides the last four.
4. run malwarebytes (free download) to make sure the system isn't infected.
just a few tips that often help optimize. hope that helps.

You need to check the bios settings. If for instance the first boot device on one computer is the harddrive and the second is the cdrom it won't take time to check the cdrom for a bootable disk and just start booting. If the second machine boots CD first then it will always check to see if a bootable cd is in the drive. There are many other options in the bios that can contribute to this. the clock cycles may be configure to overclock CPU, there are reset configuration option, is S.M.A.R.T. option enabled for one drive and not the other. You are dealing with a mass produced product also. There is the possibility that the ram may be different speed. You might try running some benchmark programs on the two laptops. There is also a program called SIW (System Information for Windows. It can give you a rundown of your installed hardware to compare them. Sysoft Sandra is a benchmark utility you can try.
