    This can be caused by a whole lot of things. Firstly let me ask if you have any security software such as firewalls, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, or any other form of security software? Next let me ask if you download files frequently, edit content (such as programming or making websites), or play a lot of higher-end games such as Crysis, Halo, CoD, CS, etc...?

    Your problems are caused by either malicious software, a fragmented and messed up registry, or a fragmented and junky hard-drive. All of these, "issues" can be fixed easily and I'll gladly help you resolve them.

The most likely culprit is a program that is hanging up the shut down process. Before you shut down, close all open programs, including the ones on the task bar.

Why does it take my computer a long time to boot up, loading, and shutting down?


indicates that then hard drive is on the way out
first step is to save everything onto an external hard drive
then take it to a computer repair shop for an inspection
check how much space is on the hard drive because if you have a lot of junk on it , that slows down the start up and shut down p[rocesses
you can go to device manager and do a defrag of the hard drive to free up space

My furnace stopped working. It'd start up shut down start up shut down all in the matter of seconds. Then would fire up and work. it did this maybe once every couple days then it stopped all together. ...


Replace pressure switch. If you blow any air into the pressure switch it has been damaged,check air ports for debris by looking never ,never blow on air switch they work on a very small pressure or vaccum,where your breath is to much pressure and also loaded with unwanted humidity.

904346-0403 Trackball: my mouse is slow...


Some tips..
this is not to say all that has happened, loads of time consuming tips are at the mouse company, which has pages and pages of tests.
Mostly when this happens to me, it is my pc overclocking it's P4 Processor.
ctrl + alt + delete = start the task manager, after that look at the cpu or processor usage. Nearing 100% all the time freezes the mouse and the pages. The issue is probably that people need to get and monitor a firewall and turn off a lot of background services sneaking in, delete cookies a few times each day, and set to delete everytime you close down the browser OR shut down your internet so it does not sneak on in the background using your pc for it's own advantage. Make sure your start up programs are heavily limited or monitored and that programs aren't allowed to do whatever they want. One is REAL PLAYER. Can be a nightmare. Many programs take over your pc and slow down things, it's important to learn what is happening with all this stuff using your pc at it's own will mercy, which is really merciless mos to the time.

PSP SCREEN FLICKERS AND GOES SLOW IN MAIN MENU


Ok...this sounds crazy but it happened to one of my PSPs. I updated the firmware on my system and the menu started stalling and taking a long time to respond. I shut the PSP all the way down....holding the power button until the light shuts off (about 4 or 5 seconds)...Hold the R button and power the system on again (you should be in recovery mode)...go to CPU speed and make sure it is either set at "Default" or "222"....I belive 222 is the default setting....also make sure the UMD is also set at "Default" or 222....if you're going to use the UMD.
