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

Startup very slow on my new dell 660 desktop


If it is updating it will take a while to load updates. Once all the updates are installed it should Boot and shut down faster. Just let it finish the updates. do not disturb until finished.

I have a Toshiba laptop with a Windows 7 operating system, a few years old. It recently started randomly shutting down - after 10 minutes or so of use, it would just go dead. It's also extremely slow,...


Hi.
the first thing i would check is to make sure there is no dirt or dust stopping the fan from running because if the fan is not running it will heat up and shut down or if the fan is running slow it will shut down.
and for running slow i would do a good clean up get rid off stuff thats not needed anymore.like music,pictures,the more your harddrive has on it the longer it will take to load and run.

Slow start up and shut down


Hello,

You didn't mention what version of Windows (Is it Windows, or is it Linux / other?) that you are using. For laptops in particular, windows sometimes gets confused as to which power saving state that the laptop should be in.

Next time that windows is running, you should see an icon of either a battery, or of a power plug in the area next to the clock (lower right corner). If you LEFT click on this, there will be a list of various power schemes that are available. MAX BATTERY will reduce the processor speed the most, while ALWAYS ON turns off power saving altogether, and allows the laptop to run at full speed.

If your fan always seems to be on, or seems to be cycling on and off rapidly even though you are doing little with the computer, then you might need to have the fan and heatsink cleaned out (consult a computer shop). When the processor starts to run hot, the motherboard will begin to slow it down regardless of the power scheme.

You might also be looking at a program that is loading during startup (did you just happen to install Open Office by chance?) that also takes a while to unload while shutting down. Consider what you have recently installed, and check your startup menu (click start >> programs >> startup ) to see what is being loaded there.

My gateway laptop keeps shutting down. it is brand new


How long have you had it on. If you are not venting the heat out away from the processor, it will shut down to protect it. I suggest either take a small fan and blowing towards the computer. Or they make a chill pads for laptops about thrity dollars.

Very slow laptop


could be a Ram problem or perhaps a virus . Try booting off a cd or floppy that you can create from http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

But you'll need access to another computer for that

How can i restart my computer all over just like brand new


you need to go ahead and let it start in sfae mode, check any changes that you made recently to your software & hardware, programs and drivers.
This is normal for windows to open this way IF you have shut the computer down in a way windows thinks there was a problem , or is a problem.
In safe mode windows does not load all the third party software , just enough to get windows up so you can find a problem.
Soo let it start in safe mode , if you find no problems after ot starts, shut it down correctly and restart, it should start the second time normally if there are no problems.
Post here again if it keeps up.
Regards!
