It is common to see such Acer laptop taking too long to start issues on Acer forum. Yes, the longer the computer you use, the slower the computer runs. But, you can still make your Acer laptop run as faster as before if you know the ways. Here we will analyze why the Acer computer takes time booting and its corresponding solutions.
Reasons for Acer Taking a Long time to Boot
Just as the issue describes in the beginning, the Acer computer stays on the Windows loading logo for a long time. In other words, the computer is in slow booting. We deep into the reasons and separate it into three sections:
Reason 1: Too many auto-startup programs running in Windows 10 boot time
Just as you are ready to run in a campaign, the more things you carry, the slower you will be, the more time will be needed. It is the same to the computer booting. The more startup programs you have, the longer it will take to launch the computer. What’s the startup program? It is the utility that is started automatically while the computer boots. A program can be enabled as the startup programs in the installation process. But you can disable its auto-startup in Windows 10 with no difficulty.
Reason 2: Your hard disk is fragmented
Fragmentation stores files in non-contiguous areas on the disk, so your storage space is not used efficiently, which reduces the performance of your hard drive. And defragmentation is the process of removing fragmentation from your hard drive with the goal of increasing the speed of reading and writing files, thereby increasing the speed of your computer. Thus, you need to make a defragment for your Acer hard drive.
Reason 3: There could be a virus infection
It is easy for computer to infect viruses or malware. When the Acer computer is super slow, it may be caused by malware running in the background, which consumes too much system resources. You can use Windows defender to protect your Acer computer.
