Idepad S400 slow startup and shutdown



My laptop is ideapad s400 with windows 8.1 , I have been using it for 2 years and last month a problem occured:


Normally it takes few seconds to start the windows, now it is around 5 minutes.

Similar problem is also occuring when I shutdown the computer. Screen goes black immediately, however other lights ( battery, power button) are still on for another 5 minutes.

I updated all drivers including chipset, reboot the system for three times. Problem has not gone away yet.


I need a solution.

Re: Idepad S400 slow startup and shutdown

Have you tried a malware scan? Sometimes when you accumulate certain malware / spyware etc. on your computer that automatically turn themselves on when you start your computer, it can cause slow startup / shutdown...

And have you checked the vent to ensure that there hasn't been excessive dust buildup?

Good luck with your computer!
