I have (maybe 6 months old) Lenovo Think Pad E580 with Xubuntu 17 with two discs, SSD 250GB, and SATA 1TB. Xubuntu is installed on SSD. From the beginning, when I started the notebook, it started fast. Now, after the start, the black screen is displayed and after a few minutes the Xubuntu logo appears and the system starts.

  • In a terminal, type systemd-analyze blame. Paste the first ten lines of output or so into your question. – Jos Jan 31 at 15:12

  • Please edit your question and paste the output into it. In any case, this is not an indication of a long boot time. – Jos Jan 31 at 15:19
  • My guess is the SSD is getting full, and it's showing up as sluggish running and slow boot times. – RobotHumans Jan 31 at 19:47
  • Can you also paste the content of /var/log/syslog in a code snippet? Usually when the system slows down at boot is because some daemons fail to start and the boot hangs until they timeout. – Cristian Vrinceanu Feb 1 at 13:47
