Answers :

George when you first turn on your laptop, keep pressing the F8 key and when you get to the system menu choose safe mode and press enter.

This will boot you up into safe mode. Once you get into safe mode. click on the windows icon in the bottom left and in the search box that comes up, type in the word MSCONFIG and click on the msconfig program that will come up. From there it will bring you into the system configuration utility, click on the startup tab and you will see all the progams that are loading up when you boot up into windows.

Disable all the programs by clicking on the disable all box and then apply the changes and click on OK and let the computer reboot and it will reboot back into normal windows. After it does this it should get into windows quicker and then see if you can shut down properly and if you can do this without the huge delay then this means you know that there is programs in your startup tab that is causing the problem. At this point go back into windows and then go back into msconfig and only let the programs load that are necessary like any anti-virus, firewall and spyware programs.

This should make things better. Don't forget to rate me when you get the chance. Thanks and let me know if I can be further assistance.
Before a computer shuts down it has to shut down all of the programs runnning. If you have added lots of software overtime then it takes longer. Also, next time you turn it on do a Ctrl-Alt-Delete and click Applications. Take a look at all of the processes running, the very large files are the ones taking the longest. You can google the file name. If you don't need it you can disable it, this will make it easier for it to shut down. Good luck.

Faulty Monitor? I bought one of these Xerox flat panel 19 inch monitors to replace my convention Sony unit about 4-5 months ago. It has worked just fine until about 7 days ago.
