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.

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!
