This sounds like a hard drive error. You should deliver it to a professional, or test it by yourself it that is possible. If you have some kind of warranty for your computer, you should deliver it were you bought it.

While the computer is booting up you should be able to hit F8 repeatedly and be offered the option to boot into safe mode. This will allow you to access your files.

Since the computer is already slow, I would back up these files to a thumb drive and just reformat using restore disks if you have any. If you don't let me know and we can explore further.

My hp pavilion a800n's fan won't turn off


It is possible that your computer is simply overheating causing it to slow down. There are a few ways to check this. Enter the BIOS and go to the hardware monitor, what temperatures does the computer read both for the CPU and the Motherboard? Another option is to install and run a program called HWmonitor that can be found here. Report back when you can.

Disable all startup items. Click on Start> Run> Type msconfig then press enter. Click on the Start Up Tab the click on Disable All. Click close and restart your computer.

Your computer shuts down slowly because there are a lot of services that run in the background that have to close before the computer shuts down.

Another reason that it will be slow is because of some programs that stay in residence have to close too.

Running defrag and scandisk will sometimes speed up startup and shutdown.
