Slow booting of Windows Vista

by glowing.splint / May 2, 2007 5:41 PM PDT

I read about the slow booting up of windows vista in(on?) another
thread on CNET, and I'm having a similar problem, really slow boot up.

I'm using a a rather new Lenovo T60,
system info:
processor: Intel core 2 CPU T5600 @ 1.83GHz 1.83GHz
Memory(RAM): 2038MB
system type:32-bit Operating sys

however as the i fear voiding warranty, other i dont dare to do disable this program and that program at startup, except for windows sidebar, which i already did before this slow boot problem happened.
I took a screenshot of the event viewer but do not know how to post it here, but generally, the problems are:
Windows has started up:
Boot Duration : 131671ms
IsDegradation : false
Incident Time (UTC) : 3/5/2007 6:21:42 AM
Log Name:Microsoft-Windows-Diagnostics-Performance/Operational
Source: Diagnostics performance
event ID: 100
level: critical
OpCode: boot information

with variations in the event ID (and boot duration)
the event IDs are : 100, 203, 200 and 400.

another problem is that I dont understand what the OpCode and Event IDs are.

Do not leave CDs in poor condition in your computer?

OK, I followed your instructions, and yeah, it does boot up faster, however , i think another factor in causing the slow boot was that i left an old CD in it, and being old and scratched i suppose its difficult to read, also adding to the slow down.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
