Acer Swift 3 (SF315-52-52YN) long initialization before booting into windows

RiderCuriousRiderCurious Member Posts: 37 Enthusiast
Hello,
every time I power up my laptop it passes very long initialization, it takes exactly 25 seconds to initialize all laptop's devices before Acer logo appears on the screen and it start booting into Windows.
During this time screen is black only keyboard glow. Optane isn't in charge. I installed Windows on M.2 SSD and boot time hasn't changed.
As I bought this renewed laptop after restoration Number #1 on my "suspect list" is BIOS problem. Some third party repair organizations or even sellers may use lopped version of bioses. It means that some sectors in bios responsible for particular features may be locked even if update to new version of the bios has been made automatically.
I highly appreciate if someone can share some knowledge about Full Bios Recovery to original Acer's image.

    No, as far as I can remember my refurbished unit already had this problem on arrival, but it received two automatic updates of the uefi-bios that comes along with windows update

    P.S. I think automatic-bios update is not a good idea from microsoft anyway, it may cause isssues

    of course it may appear that root issue lies not in the BIOS but in the hardware
  • Did this problem occur before or after removing optane memory? Before you removed optane memory, did you disable it in IRST?

    I installed HWiNFO64
    and I see following...

    Intel ME Version: v0.0 build 0, hotfix 0 Bios ME support: Not Supported.

    I am telling you BIOS has been corrupted!!! Laptop sold by: New&ReNew Electronics on Amazon has corrupted firmware.
    I claimed to ACER RECERTIFIED and they don't do anything.
    I think this must be reported to ACER HQ.


  • Can you enter the version of uefi-bios and send a screenshot of the info tab?

    I don't have such entry Intel ME
  • This is weird. I suggest you reset the battery and then enter the bios and press f9 to restore it and then f10. Then check if the intel ME tab appears.
