Win 7 HP 64-bit network very slow in starting
Hi all. I just installed a Kingston HyperX 120g SSD to my main system, and I'm having a few weird things happening, one of which is that when I boot up and Win 7 starts, it takes almost a minute before I connect to the network. My system is connected directly to the router, a Netgear 3700, cat5 cable. I have tried flushing the cache and all sorts of other suggestions, but it just is very slow connecting. Now, this is a new install on this SSD. I replaced win7 64-bit installed on a raptor 300g, and the network started almost immediately on the raptor, no problems at all. On this new install, I have dumped all drivers loading at start-up, no difference. No effect from anything I've tried. I've removed the drivers, re -started, let windows re-install the network driver, no difference. I'm stumped.
One of the selling point to SSDs is how fast they boot. Mine is very fast, but now it takes me longer to get onto the internet than it did before. So I'm kinda losing on this deal.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
