Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

Laptop is so slow when closing down - Gateway MT3705 Notebook


Answers :

If you have not installed anything, any programs or games,
anti-spyware ,anti-virus, and nothing set to auto. Then you just might have registry errors.

But if you have installed anything, some can hang on.

There is a registry hack to let it shutdown and close anything running quicker.

in XP & Vista

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/desktop

Double click on desktop,
in the key field, find (wait to kill app timeout) double click on it
and (edit string will open ) if it says 5000- reduce to 3000.
Says 3000- reduce to 2000.



In windows 7- it in a different place.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CURRENTCONTROLSET\\CONTROL

Double click on control and in key field -double click on (wait to kill service timeout) if 5000, reduce to 2000.


***** Set a restore point before you ever edit the registry******
This is normal if it is a vista operating system
