Hi, I am upgrading my laptop to SSD tomorrow. I want to run a test to see how fast it boots up now compared to what it will be when I install my SSD. Any good free programs?

Honestly the best way would be to just use a stopwatch or even a stopwatch app on your phone to time it. That is what I do. There are programs as well but they are sometimes not accurate.

My favorite stopwatch and countdown program:

It is simple, very quick and easy to use. Just remember to use it from a different computer when measuring the time of the computer that you are testing for good speed. It is a quartz watch software package that uses the same quartz crystal your motherboard uses to maintain system time.
