Forget it, it takes what it takes. There is an idea of an external drive, that can be rigged that helps, but It is a waste of resoruces.
Consider using sleep mode, for faster cycling and only shutdown when you actually need to. If this is a laptop, consider hibernate. Both sleep and hibernate focus on faster start ups, but on laptop, if you use sleep and run out of battery, you can loose data that you were working on. ALWAY save and backup.

MY 3 YEAR OLD PACKARD BELL LAPTOP TAKES UPTO 3 MINUTES TO SHUT DOWN


You could try removing items from startup. Start > Run > type MSConfig > Startup. Uncheck items you don't want to load. This will make your PC faster. This can also be done with CC Cleaner if you haven't done so already.

Laptop goes on some few minutes after being shut down.


you cannot blame windows xp because according to me it is such OS that it removes many problems of windows 7 and vista.windows 7 and vista makes your pc much slow and many features dont work but windows xp is free from these errors.actually you hear the sound but nothing appears on the screen.this is because your cpu fan is running which takes somes time to stop.may be some problem of the hardware especially the mainboard.go to any repair shop and just get it checked.

I have hp pavilion tx 1000 since 3 days it takes 7 minuted to start and takes forever to shut it down so i have to forcefully shut it down please please help me


look up what you have in the startup files, alot of stuf you download puts thier product in the startup and it will take longer for your pc to turn them on and off:

Goto start menu and type in:
MSCONFIG

goto start up and turn off anything that you do not need to run at start up....becareful that you do not turn off key components to your system...just look for software you have downloaded...this will help speed up your start up and shutdown....

Have had this lap top for right at 2 years,, just last few days, when I try to hibernate, it takes a long time to shut down, then when I start to "wake" it up, it shows that there was an un-nessary shut...


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.

Sooooo laaaaggggg


Hello,

Please try to run this system in safe mode and see if it starts up faster.

XP Goto start and select run then type in MSConfig. Navigate to your startup tab and disable the ones that you don't need.

Vista Goto start and type in msconfig and doubleclick on the icon that appears then Navigate to your startup tab and disable the ones that you don't need.

Please check this post - another fix of mine for slow systems

M9700 starts up but shuts down few minutes after vista loads


Sounds like it is a problem with the m9700 overheating. I have just repaired an m9700 with this exact issue and it was resolved by taking the CPU heatblock off, removing the dried/caked-on heat compound, and replacing it with my own (Arctic Silver 5).
Was 91c before, now down to 74c max on load (Measured with coretemp). Random crashing has stopped.

If you're running Vista that's normal.

Here’s a quick procedure that helps speed windows vista startup:

  • Click the Windows Start button
  • Right click Computer
  • Click Properties
  • Click Advanced System settings
  • In the Advanced Tab, Start and Recovery, click Settings
  • In the Time to display operating systems list setting, set a 5 second value instead of 30.
  • Click Apply
Now, Reboot your PC. You’ll notice a boost in the performance of the startup process.
