Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I don't know about the long shutdown time but I may be able to speed up the startup time.
(Assuming you have Windows Vista or 7)
Go to the Start menu and in the "Search" field type in "msconfig" (without the quotation marks" ")
Click the on "Boot.Ini" tab and check "NoGuiBoot". Now on the right where it says "timeout" change the 30 secs. to 15 secs.
Now click on the Startup tab. Tell me all the processes that are on here. If there's more than 15 or so then it's no wonder your computer is starting up slowly. This should dramatically speed up your PC and improve performance.
