Re: Nvda start up question

Quentin Christensen

When the computer starts up, it is quite busy and there is a high load on RAM, CPU and storage.  It sounds like it is loading NVDA and then trying to do other things which are causing problems - if it all sorts itself out after a few seconds, it's probably not a serious issue aside from the sound being annoying.  The main things you could do to address it (short of buying whole faster PC) would be:

- If you are using a traditional HDD Hard Drive, switch to an SSD which can be up to ten times faster.
- Add more RAM to your PC
- Reduce the number of programs running at startup
- Ensure your drivers for your system, particularly audio and video drivers, are up to date.

WIth the last two options obviously being the cheapest.

I have nvda on a new laptop and a few times upon start up nvda has stuttered and or paused while the computer makes a sort of buzzing sound.Only at start up and not until nvda is starting up so has anyone else had this and is it some setting I need to fix or what? It has only gotten hung once when reading something there it seemed stuck but otherwise at start up.
