What is wrong with my build ?


Right off the assembly line
​Hello folks.

My system is working slow for unknown reason, it takes almost 3 minutes to boot-up completely..I used to think it is because of Hard drives which I have connected, But when I tested they weren't causing the slow down.. there are no software bugs since I have tried re-installing OS multiple times.I am using Windows 8.1 on Intel core i3 2nd generation CPU, 2GB + 2GB DDR3 Kingston RAM , 500GB + 500GB + 2 TB + 1TB SATA Hard drives. ASUS 2GB DDR 3 GPU. Please suggest some changes or up-gradation for my system, it's been headache for me to use the system in spite of up-gradation. How to know if my CPU is healthy? Shall I change my memory sticks? Please revert back with a solution.

Below is my AIDA64 Report which depicts all the system details :

Did you install Drivers (Up to date from GIGABYTE website)
Did you install GIGABYTE Easy Tune? It will slow down at the login screen while showing "Preparing your Desktop" If yes, uninstall it/disable it from startup

was your pc slowing down after a fresh install( provided you did not install any other software)?
connect only one hard drive in which your current os resides. also provide a screenshot of crystaldisk info software.

must be an issue with either :

A : Sata Data Cable
B : Motherboard SB Chip / Capacitor near around is degrading
C : Sata Power Cable Issue
D : Sata Port Issue
E : the most important - one or more HDDs have developed bad sector / failing hence the OS takes too long time to detect it. So follow the method suggested by [MENTION=135617]rijinpk1[/MENTION] - check each and every HDD one by one using HDD manufacturers dignostic tool like seatools Dos version for seagate. Perform long / extensive test and install OS on a "good" drive determined by diagnostic tool. Only then install os on it and connect only the OS drive with the motherboard. See how long it takes to boot up. BTW, disconnect Lan cable from motherboard.

I have not installed Gigabye Easytune... I believe there is some Hardware issue with my system which I am not able to track.


Right off the assembly line
No issue with the performance graph.Check the screenshot.
