In the event of a system failure (e.g. Blue Screen Of the Death), Windows enters into a file the data contained in the RAM for the purpose of being used for any debugging. Hardly very useful, this feature slows down the system so let’s turn it off!
We will also take advantage of this to better configure the Start the system whose properties are available in the same place.
Start by opening the start Menu then right click Properties on Computer.
A window then opens, entitled System. In the left side column, click on Advanced System Parameters.
In the section Start-up and recovery, click on Settings.
In the first section, Start the system, uncheck:
- Display operating systems during: “X” seconds : needless if you only have one operating system installed on your PC. If this is not the case, leave that value or decrease there;
- Show recovery options during: “X” seconds : unless you have a completely unstable PC, disable this function where, if you are careful, reduce the number of seconds to 15;
In the second section, System failure, uncheck:
- Write an event in the system log : completely useless;
- Restart automatically : when crashing the computer rebootes so quickly that it is often impossible to read the error message, for example, in the case of a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), to deactivate therefore;
- Writing debugging information : from the drop down list, choose none;
As a precaution, you should create a system restoration point.
