256GB MX100 SSD incredibly slow

I have had a 256GB MX100 SSD installed in my main computer as the boot & OS drive for a little over 2 years now.

Upon boot-up, I must wait 30 seconds or so for the Windows 7 Ultimate splash screen to appear.

Once the splash screen appears, it takes another 2 to 2-1/2 minutes for the login screen to appear.

Once the login screen appears, I must wait another 30 seconds before the mouse and keyboard are usable.  Until then, they are frozen.

What is going on with this drive?

Check the drives smart data and benchmark it to ensure the drive is actually at fault.  Been a long time since I've heard these symptoms but from memory I seem to recall this can be caused by a networking fault under W7...

Re: 256GB MX100 SSD incredibly slow

I have no idea how to check smart data, nor do I know what benchmark tool to use. 

 

I will need a little more help than that, if you would be so kind...

With CrystalDiskInfo use 'Edit > Copy' option, just please remove drive's serial number.

Benchmark the drive with AS SSD Benchmark and post the results with 'Edit > Copy' option.
