Laptop Crashes When Rebooted, no issue when shutdown and boot takes place?

Q: Laptop Crashes When Rebooted, no issue when shutdown and boot takes place?

Hi Guys,

In the last few days this Acer Aspire 5535 Laptop, crashes during a reboot cycle, this is on the powering down phase. After this takes place a system restore is required which takes it back to the state prior to the reboot.

Powering on from cold and shuting down present no problem, this presents its own issues when installing new software.

Any help that you guys can give on this would be appreciated.

Cheers
Alan

Preferred Solution: Laptop Crashes When Rebooted, no issue when shutdown and boot takes place?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to TechSpot

Your PC shows all the symptoms of either a virus or hijacking.

Download and install the following 4 programs, each in their own permanent directory:
Spybot S&D http://www.safer-networking.org , let it "immunise" your PC, takes only a few seconds.
Adaware Personal SE http://www.lavasoftusa.com
HijackThis http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
CWshredder http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html

Before running any of the above, always make sure you have the latest program-versions,
and do an online-update in Adaware and Spybot for the latest definitions.

Reboot in Safe Mode (press F8 a few times upon booting).
If you have "BeginToSearch" etc. run CWShredder first and let it fix whatever it can.
If not, run Adaware, then Spybot. Let them each fix whatever they can.
Then reboot again in Safe Mode.

Now run Hijackthis with NO other programs open, but DON'T let it do anything yet.
Make sure you first read TomCoyote's instructions on HJT !!
Copy and paste the HJT report here in this thread. We may be able to help you further.

By the way, if you still can, return the Norton AV and swap it for McAfee. They cost the same, but McAfee is a lot less intrusive and does not hog your system-resources.
Withe the above-mentioned programs, you should be able to determine what is going on. Switch on the "heuristics" in AVG and do a full scan, AVG is quite good (though not the best).
If your CPU is 2.2Ghz or better, you could also look into the "Extendia AVK" Antivirus programs from http://www.extendiaavk.com/

Hello all,

My boss has a problem when shutting down his Laptop at work. When he chooses to shutdown it can take up to 10 minutes for it to shutdown and he is really starting to get worked up.

However, when he uses it at home it shuts down right away.

Can anyone suggest a posible reason for this?

His laptop is a Dell with Windows xp.

I will be monitoring this thread so if you need any extra info about the problem then drop me a line.

Hi

I recently purchased alienware m18x r2 with following specs
I7 3630m
Gtx 680m sli
12gb ram
750gb wd
120 (windows installed)
& 256gb sdd

Now for the problem when I receive the laptop it was preinstalled with window 8 and on the first boot it took around 5 to 6 mins to boot to desktop..I reinstalled the windows considering it to be the bloatware fault..
The problem gets solved but after i download alienware osd drivers , alienware command center and nvidia drivers the delay is back ..
It starts with a bsod (your pc ran into problem)error window minidump memory.dmp.etc and after that windows boot restart and shutdown after almost 5 to 10 mins..
In the duration of delay there is no hdd activity and after 3 to 5 minutes when the hdd gets actives it boots to desktop in 5 secs

Really appreciate if anyone help me through this

A:windows 8 takes long time to boot, restart & shutdown

Have you tried installing the OS into the 256GB SSD? and try installing the drivers one at a time to find out which one would cause the boot delay issue.

Dont know if you have viral corruption or hardware failure there,you need someone more knowlegable than me.Odd to have so many functions disapear with no trace of virus.
Might help if you posted your system details and whats written on the extra screen at bootup you mentioned

I am using a laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit having intel i7 3rd generation processor, 1TB harddisk, 8 GB RAM, 2GB dedicated graphics from Nvidia which I purchased a few months ago. I thought such high conguration computers would remain fast always but it is not so. I have been using this laptop for quite a time but at that time the maximum time I kept the laptop on was for 3-4 hours. At this time my laptop boot was quick to boot. But suddenly due to my requirements, I have to leave the laptop running for 8-9 hours. Now, I have to wait for longer time to boot. So what is the problem? Also I would like to mention that I have to keep downloading data and so my harddisk has got filled up more than before. So is this the reason? Please help me.

A:Laptop boot takes longer than before.

Hi, BomBlast,
 
You are right, it is not so !  Boot times increase for a number of reasons but mainly because of the number of services and programs that get included in the automatic load at start-up list. This can be controlled throught the Device Manager. By and large, if you don't need something to run regardless of whether you are going to need it or not, then set it to start manually rather than automatically. All this means is that it that particular service won't start until you start the application calling for it running.
 
The amount of on time on your computer should not affect its boot time at all, my own computer is usually on from about 0900 to midnight +, without any side effects.
 
However, you say you are downloading a lot of data and your hard drive is filling up. That is to be expected, but have you cleaned out your temporary file collection or done a defrag recently ?  Both of these will slow your computer down.
 
You can get a very good temporary file cleaner from here :-
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/ccleaner/
 
Only one word of warning - make sure that the box against Reg-Edit is unticked before you run it, going into the Registry can be dangerous.
 
If you don't like the Windows defragmenter - it can be very slow, the same company who make CCleaner make a good (free) defragmenter, you can get it here :-

I have a Sony VAIO laptop with Win7 installed. A few days ago, I was using it as usual playing online tetris, AIM, etc. And then I turned it off normally when I went to bed.

Next day, when I used it again, it couldnt boot up. When I turned it on, the Sony Logo appears and keeps showing for about 10 mins. While the logo is showing, I could press F2 and go into BIOS. But BIOS also took long to show up. Same to windows installation disk, I inserted a CD while it started up, it also took long to load the CD. If I just waited for windows to boot up, it took long to wait and finally showed a message "OS not found".

Does anybody know what the problem is? could it be the HDD failure? Thanks for all help!
 

A:Laptop takes LONG to boot

It sounds to me like you might have gotten an infection on your computer. I suggest you run your anti virus program scan and also anti malware/antispyware programs. If this doesn't help, post back and request that your thread be transferred to the virus and other malware forum, where the experts at removing this junk can be of great help to you.

Hi

A friend of mine asked me to help with his laptop which has the Interpol virus/malware.

It takes hours to boot. After pressing the on button, there is no activity apart from a small green LED for hours. It's like it's taking ages to POST. Once it decides to fire up, it's fine, wkaes from sleep quickly, but a reboot take hours.

Any idea what this is?

A:Laptop takes three hours to boot!

You should boot to safe mode and run antivirus programs and Windows Defender. Also try a restore point. Also, run system file checker, SFC /SCANNOW from the command prompt by starting cmd as an administrator. Then run chkdsk. You should also check the hdd with a hdd utility such as Seatools.

If everything fails to resolve the issue, back up all your data, delete the disk partitions, wipe the disk with a low level format and reload the os.

Toshiba laptop takes way too long start, probably close to 10 minutes. I tried to limit the start-up programs, and even check for mal/spy-ware, but the effect lingers. How can decrease the boot time for this laptop?

A:Laptop takes about 5 to 10 minutes to boot from being off. What's up?

I'm sorry, my first pc I've owned did the same. I'd have to power it on and go make lunch to pass the time. Try working with this thread by quietman7. It's full of great tips and should help with your computers performance and take some time off your boot up. I'd run through everything that's applicable to you and post back after. I'm sure there's even more that can be done to speed up your boot, but this is a great place to start.

I was extremely excited threw in the battery and after about 15 minutes i finally was in. 15 is way longer then the bootup times ive seen on other Hp Mini 110 laptops on youtube. so heres what happens

Turn on laptop
HP Logo screen- 10 minutes
A Black screen(sometimes with a blinking grey under score in toprite corner)-5 minutes
Windows xp loading screen 30 seconds.

also if i restart it (start,turn off comp, restart its takes like 30 seconds to go through all above mentioned phases)

My laptop is taking hours to boot up into XP Pro sp3.

I have two partitions. I can boot into Win7 and run chkdsk on the XP partition.
Chkdsk runs clean.
I have two gig of memory.
It runs fine if I boot into Win7.
I have Bitdefender antivirus installed, running and up-to-date.
I have run Malwarebytes with no errors.
I have run sfc /scannow.
When it does boot up I don't see all the icons in the sys tray.
It takes for ever to run a program.
Speed Fan S.M.A.R.T. Tab show the hard drive is healthy.

Could someone please help me figure out what is causing such long delays?

Thank you,

A:My laptop takes hours to boot up

Did this laptop come with Windows XP, or did you try and install it after? If you installed it yourself, did you install all the necessary drivers? Does XP run acceptably well once it boots, or is it always slow? Finally, does it literally take hours to boot? If not, to the nearest minute, how long does it actually take?

Hello,

I have an old laptop from 2007. I bought windows 8 licence (was using W7) and it was working great for the few months. After that it stopped. Now if I want to boot it, or restart it or shut it down it takes at least 30 minutes which huge sound coming from it.

I got a new laptop today, but I still want to use my old one. As I think a laptop is a girl, it has to be perfect

P.S: It takes 1 minute to enter the windows 8. And 29 minutes to enter the metro layout (it keeps loading).

What do I have to do.

I have faith in the members here!

A:Laptop takes 30 minutes to boot

Hi,

Have you made sure ALL updates and App updates (via Store) have been done.

Also, the fact it gets into the Windows 8 fine, but the Start screen (aka Metro!), appears to be maybe an issue with the Graphics drivers - check them in Device Manager.

Hope this helps.

PS. Also try looking in Task Manager for any App/software that might be trying to startup - this could be delaying things.

Go here and here and click the green icon to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.40 and SUPERAntiSpyware 4.27.0.1002.

After they're both installed, run their update function to get them up-to-date with the latest definition files.

Run a "quick scan" with Malwarebytes. When the scan is finished, select and allow it to fix everything it finds. Restart the computer if prompted to.

Run a "quick scan" with SUPERAntiSpyware. When the scan is finished, select and allow it to fix everything it finds. Restart the computer if prompted to.

I have found that if I disconnect the power, windows will boot normally (this is the only way to get back into windows after a shutdown).

Everything seems to work fine and I do not believe it is my power supply (have never had this problem with WinXP). I did notice that when windows is working and I do a reboot that memtest shows no problems, but after a shutdown memtest says my ram has many errors. Then if I disconnect the power memtest says the ram is fine again. I have 4x1GB Corsair XMS CM2X1024-6400C4 DDR2 sticks in my motherboard.

Any help would be appreciated.

Again, what happens is memtest fails in Win7 after a shutdown, unless power is disconnected after the shutdown. It is fine after a power disconnect and subsequent restarts.

Thanks in advance,

memtest (and not windows memory diagnostics) is never run inside windows. It is always run from a boot cd or USB.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1750. Today, for no apparent reason it has started booting very slowly. When you hit the on button there is the usual sound and then the screen is just black and the computer goes quiet.

Eventually, the windows logo flies in, in slow motion and then black screen again for about 3 mins

Finally the login screen comes on, I log in and everything works as normal

Any idea what could be causing this?

I have an HP 8530p laptop running 2GB on XP pro sp3 that's been having this boot up issue for about a couple of years now. The problem is that it takes at least 8 to 10 mins. to boot up. It will hang right before the windows login prompt (applying security settings) every time. Is there any fix for this? I've tried cleaning temp files and the registry which did not help at all. Thanks, much appreciated.

Hi,

20 hours is far too long. For one thing, you should not see the Welcome screen but a black chkdsk screen. Check disk usually takes about 1 hour. Here is a tutorial from Brink on what to do if chkdsk will not run at startup: Chkdsk will Not Run at Startup in Vista

A:Laptop takes 10 minutes to get to the Windows Boot Up Screen

Sounds like it could be a driver issue/issues...Since you didn't do the re-install with the HP cd's it's possible that XP does not have all the updated drivers for that machine. DLoad and install either Belarc or Everest Home. Both of these will give you plenty of info on the components in that machine then it's just a matter of tracking down and installing the correct drivers...
P.S. i would start with the video drivers first and work from there.

Good Luck and keep us posted.

A:Suddenly my laptop takes a long time to boot up ...

Bump

The problem is getting much worse. It now takes 4-5 minutes to boot!! I think it has something to do with Windows Security Alerts (that little red shield in the taskbar). When I attempt to turn on the security I get the error message that I've enclosed.

Hi

I am trying to fix my laptop as its taking a really long time to boot and it keeps freezing, I currently have the use of another laptop so I would see if I can use it to find out a bit more about what might be wrong with it. This is what I have tried to do already:

Checked the start up on msconfig and it looks relatively normal - mostly dell and intel items
run windows defender offline from boot but it doesn't seem to have found anything
I have tried to system restore but its only giving me 1 recent date which is no good.
Nothing seems to be showing up with AVG AV scans
I also tried to run the SFC/scannow function but wasnt really sure what I was looking at so that wasnt too helpful.

Any help or suggestions would be great appreciated.

Claire

Are you using System Maintenance Utilities in your PC?

Hi,
During a windows update, my laptop shutdown unexpectedly and now shortly whenever it gets to the black screen with the windows logo, a blue screen pops up reading "session3_initialization_failed". It then restarts, giving me a choice to launch startup repair or start windows normally, the latter leading my to the same blue screen. I don't have any restore points for a system restore, and booting in safe mode does not help either. I would like to avoid reinstalling windows 7, just repair the system files, as I have important large files saved and did not make any backups. I have windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Also, before the shutdown, the screen read that it was at 15% configuring windows update.

Any help to a fix would be appreciated.

Hello all

I really hope someone can help!

I have a Dell Studio 1558 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit which I bought in October 2010 with the OS already installed by Dell. I haven't reinstalled it subsequently.

All was fine until about a month ago. Since then every time I boot the computer from cold it eventually crashes (about 1 to 10 minutes). The screen goes grey with lots of vertical lines and then it automatically reboots itself. Once it has rebooted it never crashes again until the following day when I try to turn it on again.

I have no idea what is going on and I'm not that technically minded with these things so I'd really appreciate some assistance from someone who knows what they're doing!

I'm attaching the dmp files and perfmon report as requested.

Many thanks,

Chris

A:Laptop crashes only on first boot of day

Welcome
It looks like a driver and you should take the Driver Verifier, but trust me its not fun.
In lieu of that do two things for me
Before you go to bed set up a clean boot. Then the next morning if you do not crash. Follow the instruction for clean boot and your problem will be solved.
If you do BSOD report back and get ready for the Verifier. Its not really that bad, sort of like going to the Dentist
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
If others come by and suggest the memory test, you could take it.
But for the verifier use clean boot first.

Few days ago,my laptop boot time increase from below 15sec to 50+second and cannot shutdown completely.When i shutdown the laptop,it stuck at a black screen but the power light is still on.So i had to do a hardshutdown by pressing the power for few seconds.I remember that the only change i made on that day is install AMD Catalyst install manager and Intel Driver Update Ultility.I also update the AMD graphic driver to omega 14.12 using AMD's autodetectutility.I wonder if is the new AMD drivers makes my laptop suffer such problem?Should i rollback the driver version?If not how to fix it?

I did a hard shutdown when my system was running slow ( ASUS A53sv  64bit  ) and when I went to reboot I was sent to the system repair screen. I cancelled out of repair mode once and then went back to it and let it run. After about 20 hours I received a message that it had finished and I should try rebooting. I wound up back at the system repair screen again. I dl'ed a linux live boot iso ( puppy linux )and was able to mount my partitions and am moving my data to an external drive . 
I would love some assistance in determining if the drive is failing and if it is possible to get this system up and running again.
 
 
Thanks!

Well...I have had to run System Repair a couple of times when attempting to correct boot problems (self-inflicted)...so I would try running it again.
 
As for determining the functional status of the hard drive...you need to visit the website of the hard drive manufacturer and download the diagnostic utility provided for its products.  Following website instructions...then run the long/extended diagnostic on the drive.
 
Hard shutdowns...may damage system files, preventing proper booting of the system.  One of the attempted cures after a hard shutdown of any type...is to run the chkdsk /r command on the Windows partition.
 
Chkdsk /r, Windows 7 , Note that...when presented the options...put check marks in both boxes (Scan For and Automatically Fix), rather than just Automatically Fix.

I have a satellite that I've been playing WoW on for some time now. A few months ago it completely stopped working and would make this "metal ball dropping" sound, which I assumed was the HD failing. A few days later it was working fine, though it was saying I had a media failure, but started up an ran.

Last night while playing WoW it crashed completely and when I power on, the fan starts, then it clicks and powers off. Absolutely nothing happens.

I assume the motherboard is bad? Or could the HD cause this?

I've already ordered a new laptop, but was hoping I could salvage this one.

Thanks for any advice!
 

A:Laptop crashes instantly upon boot

you may be able to recover the hard drive, or your data, after your new system arrives.

i would suggest removing the hard-drive from the system,
then try to boot with your xp disk in the cd.

if you are able to get to the installation screens, then you know your hd was causing the problem.
If you are unable to get there, then you know that you have further problems than the hd.

The hd, can be checked by installing to a usb device (like a usb enclosure, which may or may not work) or more likely a device like apricorn's drive-wire! This will allow you to recover your data at least.

So I left my computer on to go shopping with my family, and I come back, reboot it from sleep, and I find the display greyscale.

So, I tried a restart, and it was fine until I logged on, and the screen reverted back to greyscale.

The graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS. And I am currently scanning using Malwarebytes, though not in Safe Mode.

So please help me, I can't do any of my work without color.

EDIT: Malwarebytes has not picked up anything.

Hello, over the last month or so my pc just wont shut down basically. It takes around 20 minutes before it finally does. In the past it used to be very quick. I got so sick of this i have tried formatting, differrent supplies, all sorts and nothing seems to work. When shutting down its as if everything goes off apart from the fans and power supply, it just hangs. I would really really appreciate some help on this. If you have any ideas please re-post. cheers!

The problem I am having with XP is that it will, after 1-2 hours, is completely out of memory, and begins to shut down programs because "Virtual memory is too low". Also, when I shut down, it arrives at the "logging off" screen within a few seconds, but will then be "Logging off" for 10-12 minutes before finally shutting down.

It began last week when I installed some drivers from Dell and updates from Windows. Before that time, I could go days without restarting, running Firefox w/8-10 tabs, Outlook w/ Word editor, along with numerous apps running from startup.

When I start in Safe mode, it shuts down fine. I have run AVG full scan, Spybot full scan, Adaware full scan, and evenSDFix suggested in other threads.

Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated. If any more info is needed, please feel free to ask.

My speakers were a little staticy, so I did reboot just to make sure it wasn't a static build-up or anything. Upon rebooting I got the "Boot Disk not Found..." error.

The bios sees the drive, and if I put the Windows 7 disc in and select the "install drivers" option, I can browse the drives and it sees the windows folder on the drive. However, if I try to do the startup repair, it does not see a windows file. Also, the Windows installer sees the drive under custom install options.

I'm at a loss. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Hello,

I have had this problem since day one with windows 10 and its about to force me back to windows 7. Random times when working on my laptop it will just freeze. If there is something playing be it music or youtube it will make a god awful noise through the speakers.

My laptop is an older laptop and dell says it does not support windows 10. I upgraded all my drivers including the bios.

Any other suggestions or is this a live with it or downgrade?

I have not tried a clean install yet. Would prefer not to if possible but it may be a last resort.

A:Laptop freezes and has to be forced shut down and rebooted.

I have this same problem, except my laptop is new.

I've been troubleshooting this on my laptop for maybe the past month, more or less since I've gotten it. For me, at least it's:

NOT an overheating problem.
NOT a CPU overclocking problem.
NOT an SSD problem.
NOT a HDD problem.
NOT a USB problem.
NOT exclusive to Windows 10 (it happened when I had Windows 7 before I upgraded).

There is no consensus as to what causes this freezing/audio stutter/buzzing. Right now I'm testing with a different power supply. I'm actually hoping it's the PSU, because I really don't want to even think it has something to do with the motherboard.

If it ends up being a driver problem (which I am doubtful it is), I wonder how Windows 10 automatic driver downloads will cause issues if driver rollbacks are necessary.

Anyway, we're basically shit out of luck. Don't expect to get any real advice, since there basically is none to be had. To actually address your post, I don't think you need to do a clean install. I've done various clean installs, both of Windows 7 and 10, and I still get this issue, so it's not (I don't think) an OS or driver issue. But maybe it is. No one knows.

Really frustrating.

Ok so I purchased a PC from Overclockers.co.uk (see spec) in December 2008

Approx 3 months ago it started to take its time shutting down, approximate times are below.

Start -> Shut Down -> (5 minutes) -> Shut Down -> (2 minutes) -> Power Off
Start -> Shut Down -> (5 minutes) -> Restart -> (2 minutes) -> Restart

The only way I can get a fast shutdown is:

CTRL+ALT+DEL -> Shut Down -> Shut Down

I have done a checkdisk:

chkdsk /r

I have scanned my PC for viruses and spyware/adware:

Spybot S&D
Bullguard Internet Security 8.5

Both of these are up-to-date.

I have also defragmented my PC.

Kinda ripping my hair out at the moment as I have tried everything I know of what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Win XP takes a long time to shutdown

If you are comfortable in the registry give this a look.
This is a fairly common cause of slow shutdowns.

Start Registry Editor and navigate to the following key:

[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]

Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown value to 0

Or, using Group Policy Editor [for Windows XP Professional]

Click Start, Run and type Secpol.msc
Click Local Policies | Security Options
In the right-pane, set Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile to Disabled

Windows 8 which I installed recently (from factory recovery image) suddenly now takes too long to shutdown.
Around 2 minutes and 20 seconds.
I tried disabling and enabling "Fast Startup" but that didn't affect the shutdown time.
Also reduced the "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" from 5000ms to 3000ms but also there is no effect.
Also the "ClearPageFileAtShutdown" is set to 0.
I even tried hibernating instead of shutdown and it took 2:20 minutes too !
Also disabled hibernate with "powercfg -h off" and tried to shutdown , and took 2:20 minutes too!
Thanks in advance .

First, open the task manager and look in the Startup tab to see if you have any unnecessary processes running at startup and disable them.

My computer's been starting to do something odd lately. While shutting down, after the screen turns off, it takes a while (over 10 seconds) for the power to go completely off. The time it takes to do this seems to be increasing every shutdown. The only thing I've downloaded lately is a game on Steam and updated Avast. Should I be worrying about this?

I have WIN 7 64-bit and recently shutdowns are taking over 3 mins - no other problems are showing so far .

What sort of things should be done to investigate this problem ?

Recently I had to re-install XP onto my sisters PC and now after re-installing it, whenever the PC finishes the shut down process the fans keep spinning and the power light remains on for about 5 minutes before eventually powering off (or if I hold the power button down for a few seconds).

The initial shutdown process goes fine, it removes the output to the monitor and you hear the sound of the PC powering down but the fans keep spinning. I thought it maybe a ACPI problem but the device manager lists the PC as a ACPI Uni-processor PC (It's quite a few years old). There were no problems with this before XP was re-installed. Does anyone know why it is doing this?
 

A:PC takes long time to power off after shutdown

I have heard that some fans stay on until your pc is cool after shut down some power supplies have a built in thermostat that keeps the psu fan spinning until the psu cools down.. Not sure if this is the problem or not tho

Here's a curious thing I noticed with Firefox.

Over time it gradually hogs a lot more memory. It usually starts at around 180MB, but climbs over time to 400MB+.

Now my laptop often goes a week or so without a reboot (wow, I guess Windows did get better without us really noticing ). So I'm not sure how long it takes for that to happen.

When I close Firefox it disappears from view rapidly. But I've also watched it in task manager... where it slowly unloads itself, with memory used bouncing around (up and down) until it finally disappears - some 30 seconds or so later..!

Is this typical Firefox behaviour? Does Firefox not manage memory very well? Maybe I have a badly behaved Add-On?

Please help. I'm currently pissed off about tmy unit which is taking too long to shutdown. I've tried the methods posted here to lessen the startup time and shut-down time of a computer but it only affected the booting process. when I shutdown it still takes that long even with the tweaks. Please help out.

A:Shutdown time takes too long after doing the tutorials

Make sure your system is not set to clear page file at shutdown:

Virtual Memory Paging File - Clear at Shutdown - Vista Forums

If it is not, perform a clean start to see if it shuts down with minimal applications runnin. If so, you can figure out what is causing the hang at shutdown.

Hello for some reason windows takes forever to load and shutdown before I reinstall windows I thought someone may know my problem. My computer loads and boots to the signup screen in like 5 seconds. But when I log into windows it takes about 1 minute or so for everything to load. I can see the desktop and icons but if I click on an icon or try opening a program it doesn't work or freezes. It didn't use to do this I dont have that much on my computer. 600GB of a 1 terabyte hardrive is all I have installed. I used to actually have 900GB of random junk on this computer and it windows would load no problem. My specs are: Intel i5-3450 @3.10Ghz , 8GB of RAM , and a NVIDIA GT 640. Oh I also have a terabyte hardrive wich I mentioned.

If you need help, please create your own topic in the appropriate forum.  Multiple Antivirus ProgramsI do not recommend that you have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't. 2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.Therefore please go to Programs and Features in the Control Panel and uninstall either Microsoft Security Essentials or Norton Internet Security. Spybot S&D no longer recommendedmvps.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D due to poor testing results. See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products)
Further, most people don't understand Spybot's TeaTimer or how to use it and that feature can cause more problems than it's worth. TeaTimer monitors changes to certain critical keys in Windows registry but does not indicate if the change is normal or a modification made by a malware infection. The user must have an understanding of the registry and how TeaTimer works in order to make informed decisions to allow or deny the detected changes. Additionally, TeaTimer may conflict with other security tools which do a much better job of protecting you... Read more

I haven't been able to find anything on this, so I am looking for some help.

I replaced a hard-drive on my cousins laptop (Dell Inspiron E1705) and installed the XP Media Center as directed for reinstallation. It took me some time to find which drivers I needed and may have over installed some drivers. Was doing this problem prior to all the drivers being loaded.

The issue: It takes over ten minutes for it to shutdown. After clicking shutdown, the taskbar and mouse disappear to just the blank desktop. Then after several minutes it will do the shutdown tune and show the saving settings/shutting down splash screen. Then it turns off. I haven't been able to pinpoint what would make it do this?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I just upgraded my Windows 7 setup to Windows 8 and I'm sort of regretting it now. It takes around 3 minutes to shut down sometimes. It just displays the plain screen with "Shutting Down" and the rotating orb for 3 minutes then shuts down. And if I close my laptop's lid during this, next time I open it, I *still* see that screen. So my laptop goes to sleep *while* shutting down and wakes up in the same state. This blows my mind.

Also, another issue. If my laptop goes to sleep automatically because of very little battery left. Then if I connect my charger and try to wake it up, it takes around 3-4 minutes here as well.

Any clue how to troubleshoot these problems? Priority being the shut down problem.
 

A:Shutdown/Wake up takes a HUGE amount of time

What you described happened to me once, and I realized that there were Windows updates being applied. Since your system is "new" maybe you are not yet caught up on updates.

Sometimes the Windows 8 is "doing maintenance.' I don't know if a shut down during that time would cause this foolishness.

If neither of the above I would hope that it is a driver issue and try updating, starting with the chipset.

This is my preferred order for finding drivers:

1. PC manufacturer's web site,
2. Motherboard manufacturer's web site,
3. Device manufacturer's web site,
4. A "drivers" site, such as DriverGuide,
5. Anywhere you can find one that might work,
6. Let Device Manager try to find one.
7. Use Windows Update.

(4 through 7 are really tied, and with Windows 7--and maybe 8-- the Windows Update should be at least 4th. The main message is that the first three are almost always to be preferred.)
