Hi,
The best way to solve this is to back up your personal data to an external source such as a CD, DVD or external hard drive, then reinstall Windows XP. The most likely reason for the slow start up is missing or corrupted Windows system files.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance regarding the above info.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

My laptop is automatically shutdown when they normally boot-up


if you can, hit start, if it is xp hit "run", type "shutdown -a" without the quotes, then hit enter. you will have to do this fast before the 10 seconds. if it is vista just hit start, then type "shutdown -a" and hit enter. if you are quick enough, the shutdown will abort. now, go to the startup folder in start>all programs>startup and delete anything there if you don't know what it is. this might stop it from happening again. someone might have put a shutdown command in the folder as a joke. it could also be a virus. so if this fixed it, download spybot search and destroy and run a scanmobile crusher http://www.lzcrusher.com

I can't shutdown my laptop


Hold the power button down for about five or six seconds, it will shut down then. If it keeps doing this, you need to look at what is running in the background that is preventing you from shutting down via the menu.

Click START
click RUN
type in msconfig
take a look at what is scheduled to load at startup and then try to decide if you really need to have that application on all of the time. BE CAREFUL. If you don't recognize an entry, leave it alone until you can learn what it is.

Won't shut down completely


If shutting down XP takes what seems to be an inordinate amount of time, here are a couple of steps you can take to speed up the shutdown process:
  • Don't have XP clear your paging file at shutdown. For security reasons, you can have XP clear your paging file (pagefile.sys) of its contents whenever you shut down. Your paging file is used to store temporary files and data, but when your system shuts down, information stays in the file. Some people prefer to have the paging file cleared at shutdown because sensitive information such as unencrypted passwords sometimes ends up in the file. However, clearing the paging file can slow shutdown times significantly, so if extreme security isn't a high priority, you might not want to clear it. To shut down XP without clearing your paging file, run the Registry Editor (click Start > Run, then type regedit in the Run box) and go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

  • Change the value of ClearPageFileAtShutdown to 0. Close the Registry, and restart your computer. Whenever you turn off XP from now on, the paging file won't be cleared, and you should be able to shut down more quickly.

    Note: Please be careful when editing the Registry; you can do a lot of damage here. Don't change or delete anything unless you know exactly what it is.

PC SHUTS DOWN MONITOR AND FAN


Hi Brandy19960,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please do the following steps:


Step – 1

Right-click on My Computer, open Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” Uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”



Step - 2


To change the setting, click Start --> Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK.

Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.

In the right pane, find “Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile.”

NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant “roadrunner” reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables “Clear virtual memory pagefile,” and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.



Step - 3

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem (Tip from Terri Stratton). Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked.


Step - 4
----------

Try a Shutdown shortcut -


For a shortcut to RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

For a shortcut to SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Step 5
---------

WORK-AROUND: Disable power management for your USB hub: Open Device Manager (click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK). Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub. Click Power Management. Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.” OK your way out

Step – 6
-----------
Click on the Start button.
Select Run from the menu.
In the run dialog box type “msconfig”.
Click OK.

Once in the msconfig utility select the startup tab. In the startup tab you will see several programs listed with a checkbox beside it. If there is a check mark beside the application listed, the application will startup when your computer starts up.

Regards

HP NX9010 automatically shutdown


Definitely a software problem, somewhere along the installation process, the data on the CD is being read wrong. Try a different installation disk, and see if this fixes the problem. If not, then it could be that there is either a problem with the CD drive, or the IDE controller for the Hard Drive.
