Eversince i have my carputer, i've always been able to resume from hibernation in about 3 secs or so, pretty much POOF DONE.
Just yesterday, it suddendly became disasterously SLOW. Right now it resumes at about 2 little bars per seconds, which is incredibly slower compared to before. I tried everything, including deleting the hibernation file, defrag, ...etc. Also i tried to removing all USB drives, but still slow.
Anyone know why this might be? could you give me a hand?
nothing i that i could've possibly think of, no new software, hardware,..etc.
3 sec from hibernation? WoW! What hard drive are you using and how did you get it down to that low? I can only get it down to 20sec.
just using a regular IDE HDD, there is no post time on this mobo practically (foxconn), and hibernation no time at all as well, until now of course.
Your HDD might have gotten a little beat up. Full size HDDs arent made to take bumps and nudges. Try to reformat. If that doesnt fix it, upgrade to a Laptop HD.
I would agree with fls27. HD is most likely the cause...
funny thing is, i just installed a fresh version of window 2 days ago when i decided to switch back to IDE because sata cable wasn't as secure as i would like.
Well a reinstall of windows and a change of HD and its interface could cause the issue...
nope after fresh install of xp, new software, hardware, hibernation was still super quick.
A day after that, it became slow. Anyway after some tweaking i was about to get it back to "reasonably" fast. Still no where close to the original speed. I know reinstalling winxp would most likely bring it back to normal again, but i don't think its worth 2 hours to gain 5secs of boot time. Well, in the process i ran some boot time test/optimization using microsoft bootvis, and here are the results. So if anyone who is interested can compare or see why its not at its max speed.
