  1. Laptop takes too long to boot/shutdown


    English is not my first language, so I apologize for any grammar mistakes.

    This has been happening for a few weeks already. Whenever I turn my laptop on, it shows the Windows logo + loading circle as usual, then sits on a black screen for around 5-10 minutes until the locked screen shows up. When I try shutting it down, it shows the loading circle, then stays on the same black screen for around the same time, until the fans/lights turn completely off.

    I don't remember installing anything except for Zoom on the past weeks since it started happening. The laptop seems to be working fine except for this. I thought it could maybe be a battery issue, since I've been using/leaving it on cable most of the time, but it takes too long to load even when not plugged in.

    The specs are Intel Core i5 6300, 8GB RAM, and a GeForce GTX 960M.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.

    Laptop takes too long to boot/shutdown

    Extremely long and incomplete boot

    This may be a long shot. My PC hung at boot yesterday after typing the password - see Can't Login - Further Troubleshooting Steps?

    I ran chkdsk c: /spotfix and all is now fine. Someone has also suggested running chkdsk c: /r.
