serpro69 Posted June 14, 2022 Share Posted June 14, 2022 I'm having some issues with my currently-main system and need some help figuring out what else I can do before I need to take it to service (since the warranty expired, unfortunately), and service is probably my last resort since it costs a ton here in Norway. Background: On Sunday, 12th, I've left my laptop copying some stuff to NAS while I went out for a few hours. After coming back home I discovered that the laptop got a bit "slow", so I've decided to reboot. The boot took much longer than it usually does, and ubuntu was throwing a bunch of "usb device descriptor read" errors in what seemed like a loop, but it did boot eventually. I tried to reboot again, and again got the same issues during boot. After booting up it seems to be working just fine though. I've also discovered that both the grub menu and the custom boot menu (F12) got very slow, and I actually need to wait between I press <arrow down/up> and see the changes in the menu. What I've done so far: - run diagnostics several times - no errors found (the diagnostics tool is also very laggy) - update bios (from 1.19.0 to 1.24.0) - reset bios to defaults (at this point I discovered bios is also extremely slow in responding to things, I can barely move around in BIOS) - reset internal clock (via pressing power for ~30sec) - remove ubuntu and grub, I now only have windows... The strange thing is - it seems that all the lag happens only in pre-boot. I'm now booted to windows and the performance is fine as far as I can tell. Before the issue appeared, the only change I can think of is installing the next linux kernel update (a patch version). But I don't really see how that could have affected anything, especially since now I don't even have ubuntu installed anymore. What else can I do to try to fix this issue? How else can I "debug" if it's a hardware issue? Any other advice? Thanks all in advance.
