Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
Lenovo SL500 - This "speedy" (in its day) Intel Core2 Duo T5870 2.0GHz PC takes a good five minutes to boot up and reach operational stability. There appears to be a long list of Lenovo processes in the start up process that take forever to run, initialize and complete during boot up. It's sad that there seems to be no way to deselect them and to prioritize what the user believes is important. (i.e., the last process is to connect to a trusted wireless network, uggghhhh!). Any guidance on how to trim for fast boot up and prioritize the necessary processes?
If you don't already have it, You can download a program I use, CCleaner, at:http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/. I use this program to Clean the "junk" from my machines, I suggest it to all my clients,(I do Computer Maint.). The program will clean junk files, registry, temp files...etc. It also has a section in TOOLS> STARTUP that you can disable unwanted start up items. Over the years many program you add will want to start at Startup. If you do not address them your computer will start to "BOGG" down with all the startup items, I try to disable ALL programs not needed at start-up, You have to decide which/what is necessary at start up for your particular machine.CCleaner has many useful sections, and I have never had an issue with it's operation on my machines, safe to use. ALSO Do a GOOGLE search of How to speed up start up and shut down, PC WORLD is a good source.

Take out the battery and the mains power, turn the laptop over and remove the ram cover, look for the ram and take it out by pushing the metal lugs outwards so the memory pops up, it's now ready to remove, the ram (memory) looks like this >>>>>>
Once the memory is out look very close in the memory bay for 2 brass triangles, they will be in the shape of a diamond, get a flat head screwdriver and short them 2 pins out, this will clear the CMOS, put the memory back in, turn the laptop over and plug in power & hit the on/off button.
When it comes it will say that bios settings are wrong so go into the bios and set the time and date, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and hopefully boot up with no more problems.
Hope this helps.

Is it working with latest update from windows if you are using any windows operating system? Some applications installed by you which run at startup time hug the system.
You can try logging into the system in safe mode and try to see whether you are able to enter into the system or not. Once entered with safe mode rename the installation folder for the new applications that you might have installed, after which the system started freezing.
After renaming it you can boot the system in normal mode. As the new applicaiton will not be able to run (due to folder renaming) it is most likely that the system will boot properly and you will be able to enter the system.
Then rename back the folder to original verify the compatibility of th eapplicaiton and if possible uninstall the application.
This process has saved me from a lot of system complications. Hope this helps you.
By the way which operating system are you using?

Turn on your laptop and keep pressing F8 to get to the boot menu. Choose safe mode and let it boot up into safe mode.
After you get into safe mode click on the start button in the bottom left hand corner (or the vista logo). on the run line type in "msconfig" (without the ") and press enter.
It will bring up the system configuration utility, from there click on the startup tab and then click on disable all. Do that and this will make sure none of those programs are loading up when you boot up into windows.
Let the laptop reboot and if you can get into windows without any of theh crazy slowdown then you know its something in that startup tab thta is slowing down the computer, from there you can add back what you need and see if any of what you add back is slowing down the computer.
If you do this and the computer is still very slow in booting up then the windows system files are corrupted and then you would need to go into the system restore and set your laptop back to the last date when it was running properly.
If that fails, then you'll need to save your data and wipe out the driver and reinstall the OS and device drivers.

Wth? I have the same problem. Just out of the warrany period. Can't get around the force close button to hit the settings button. Will not hard reset with the usb hold down button pull usb command. Nothing but force close after installing slide me. No other option but to push the force close button. Nice waste of 200 bucks. I think lawsuits are in order. This company has placed a fraudulent link to "firmware updates, coming soon" on its website to get nextbook buyers to hang in there just long enough to exceed their warranty period. This is false advertising. My nextbook is JUNK. And I've done nothing but download their recommended software from their website. No upgrade though... instead they manufactured a new tablet with an up to date operating system. Where's our upgrade? Class action lawsuit anyone?
