Shutdown taking too long........

Question: Shutdown taking too long........

I have a problem shutting down my computer. It takes a very long time for me to turn off my laptop. After clicking turn off computer, it takes about 5 mins. for Logging Off window to come, another 3-4 mins. to log off, and another 3 mins. for the computer to actually shut down. It wasn't taking this much time before. What could be wrong? Below is the HiJack This and Combo Fix logs. I have ran virus scan, ad-ware scan to improve the shutdown process but nothing helped. Please advice.

Preferred Solution: Shutdown taking too long........

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Shutdown taking too long........

can anyone please help me with this issue.....

Again, bottom line is its taking along time restart to shut down.

Hello,
I am using XP professional SP2. Recently i have seen that shutdown is taking very long time (about 4 to 5 minutes)
Probably not a virus issue since i have scanned my pc by Malware bytes Anti-malware, Bitdefender 2010 and Spybot.

What could be the reasons?

Answer:windows taking long time to shutdown

SHUTDOWN WORKS, BUT IT?S REAL SLOW

1. If it appears that Win XP is not shutting down, give it some time. Some users report a minute or longer for shutdown to visibly start. Generally, this is a consequence of software that is running when shutdown is attempted. It also may have something to do with particular hardware. If you experience this problem, be sure to close all running programs before attempting shutdown and see if this solves your problem. If so, then you can determine, by trial and error, which program(s) are involved.


2. Newsgroup correspondent ?Sarah? provided one specific solution for this. In Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services, stop the Nvidia Driver Helper service. (You can also get this by launching SERVICES.MSC from a Run box.) Many other newsgroup participants quickly confirmed that this solved this ?extremely slow shutdown? problem for them (it?s the most successful solution for this problem to date). According to correspondent Gan Ming Teik, downloading and installing the new version 23.11 Nvidia driver also solves this problem.


3. Correspondent Ron Spruell found that disabling the Terminal Services service reduced his shutdown time from over 2 minutes (hanging at the ?Windows is shutting down? screen) to about 10 seconds. To disable Terminal Services, follow the steps in the prior paragraph for launching SERVICES.MSC. Please note that Terminal Services is required in Windows XP for running Remote Assistance, Fast User ... Read more

Hi there!

I hope that someone can offer me some help!

I have just built my new PC:

Intel Core i7 5820K @ 3.3Ghz
Gigabyte X99-Gaming 5 Motherboard
Gigabyte GTX970 GFX Card
Corsair Vengeance 16Gb RAM @ 2100Mhz
Corsair CS650M PSU
Samsung 840 EVO SSD
Steelseries Sensei [RAW]

My issue is that it takes longer to boot up and shutdown than my old PC:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.4Ghz
Gigabyte 970A-DS3 Motherboard
XFX HD6850 GFX Card
Geil Black Dragon 8Gb RAM @ 1600Mhz
Corsair CS500 PSU
OCZ Vertex3 SSD 120Gb
Steelseries Sensei [RAW]

My old PC would not even finish the swirling flag at startup, and now it not only finishes forming the flag but also hangs around for a while afterwards.

I have checked Event Viewer and there are no errors or warnings on startup. I have also run the Windows Memory Diagnostics tool, which found no errors.

Having read many forums on the X99 chipset, people have said that there are still some issue with performance, which need to be ironed out, but having said that, a friend of mine also built exactly the same PC, bar the SSD (Kingston Hyper X), and his boots up virtually without even showing the swirling flag. So... I'm stumped and am hoping someone here can help me out a little?

As an additional comment, it seems to take a lot longer to shutdown than my old PC too.

As you can possibly imagine, having spent a sizable figure on this new PC, compared to my old one, I am a little bothered!

Hi. I installed Windows 10 Pro on my new computer (self-built) the other week. It's been running very nicely, very very quick. Well, it all seemed to be working OK at least, until a few days ago it randomly started to hang when I was shutting the computer down. And it's done it a few times since. I'd choose shutdown, everything would at first seem to shut down, the monitor would lose signal and auto shut off like normal, but the keyboard backlights stayed on and the computer was still running. There was drive activity during this and eventually, after about a minute, the computer would finally turn off.

Not content with failing to shut down properly though it also seems to randomly startup slowly. It will POST OK as far as I can tell, then starts loading Windows and then it stays black with the mouse cursor visible (and moveable) for upwards of 30 seconds before the login screen shows up.

The odd thing about all this is that it doesn't always do it. Sometimes it shuts down nice and quick (ie when the screen loses signal the computer actually turns off a second or two later). And startup is usually quick too, from time to turn on to when I get the login screen is less than 10 seconds usually (I have an SSD).

I'd normally attribute this to a driver issue but, like I say it was working fine before the other day (well, I think it was) and as far as I'm aware it hasn't had any new Windows or driver updates come through since I initially updated it all after installing the OS.

Answer:Windows Boot/Shutdown randomly taking a long time.

Hello mrpantsinator,

Check Device Manager for issues. Also, check Hidden Devices there.

Disconnect any Peripheral Devices. Then test behavior.

Run SFC.

Run System Restore.

Run Clean Boot. If this helps, run Diagnostic Startup. Load a few startups or services at a time until the boot and shutdown issue returns.

Check Event Viewer for errors.

Check Task Manager.

Hope this helps,
John

He told me to get rid of the driver and install the newer ones from the HP website, but after I uninstalled the printer and it's drivers the shutdown still dragged even when the printer wasn't installed. I went ahead and got the newest driver and the problem still remains.I tried to do a system restore to before I installed the printer, but I kept getting this error message.

2. 8GB Ram
3. 2 Sata Hard Disks of 80 GB and 320 GB (both of which are relatively empty)
4. Radeon HD Graphics Card
5. Antivirus - Microsoft Security Essentials
6. Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H
7. CPU - AMD A8-3850 (2.9 GHZ)

Off late, my PC takes way too long to start any application. At times, even if I click on a folder, it doesn't open and finally the PC gives me the 'Wait or Close' option.

Even while switching off the PC, it takes a long time.

I clean my PC regularly and run scans from time to time. The PC doesn't show any virus or malware as of now.

Any suggestions what I can do? I assembled it not more than 2 years ago and it's started behaving like this off late.

Also, at times my 320 GB hard disk doesn't show up under my computer. I have to open my cabinet and tighten the SATA and Power cable and then it shows up again.

Any help will be appreciated.

Tell us the details of how you "clean my PC". What do you do exactly and how often?

Have you checked running processes or services through Task Manager when it seems to be slow?

The drive issue may be the cause. Have you tried another cable or connecting the hard drive to another port?

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

Answer:Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.

Let the system do its work. You just want to wait. Usually this don't occur unless it is a huge file. Be patient for a reasonable time. Still if it remains, try logging off/restart.

Hello,
 
Ive been having some strange problems with my computer, they only started a couple days ago, November 8th, when windows 7 wouldn't boot. I haven't done anything or downloaded anything strange, that I can think of, that would cause this...
 
My computer has Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit, I did the repair process and that seemed to fix it. Everything would boot again but now it takes Windows 10- 15 minutes to start. (It used to take only about 2-3 minutes tops)
It will generally sit on the Welcome screen for 5-6 min, then go to a black screen where my mouse is visible.
I can move the mouse around but clicking does nothing. After another 5 or so minutes on the black screen, windows will fully load and everything is fine, except I discovered that avast is somehow disabled whenever my computer starts now.
 
The shutdown process is doing something similarly strange. When I select shutdown the computer hangs for 3-4 mins then says a program is still running in the background and asks if I want to force close it. Sometimes the stated program is explorer.exe "log off sound" or "task host window" or nothing at all will appear. After I force it to shutdown, windows will go to the logging off screen and sit there for 10-15 minutes before actually turning off.
 
Not sure whats going on so I searched around for some solutions...

I have Norton internet Security 2007. A "red exclamation point shows that I need a full virus scan. I have tried three times to do it and it is taking way too long. I know that I have over 300,000 files from doing other scans and after 4 hours only 75,000 files were scanned. So I stopped it and started over again and the same result. It can take that long can it? At certain points it is taking as long as two minutes to do one file.
I have a XPS Dell 420 with Vista Ultimates OS. Machine is running very efficient and fast. I also use Spy Sweeper, C Cleaner and Windows Defender.
Any ideas as to why the scan would take so long. Any suggestions. There are no
virus problems showing with any of my tools.

Thanks, Schaeffdog
 

Answer:Norton Taking way to long ???

Probably just Norton. I see almost as many problems with Norton as I do with viruses.

Norton is really a resource hog though, even if it isn't scanning. How much memory(ram) does your system have, and do you have any other programs running when you are trying to do a scan? Although I personally would probably just get rid of Norton, I probably do have a little bias. There is probably a way, somehow, to increase it's performance to suitable levels. But, anyway, like I said, the first thing I'd check is how much ram do you have?

Ok so I have troubleshooted a couple of computers and they have all had issues with being slow and laggy... I usually check all of the basic things.....doing the scans with anti-virus and malware bytes and doing a disk clean up and defrag but if that doesnt work I usually am stuck with backing up all of the important files and reinstalling the OS.....I feel like I should be quicker with resolving the issue...I feel like if I want to do help desk I'll need to troubleshoot quicker...any tips on how to troubleshoot quickly? Does it get better after more experience?

Answer:taking too long for me to troubleshoot!

Speed isn't everything - being thorough and making sure you actually fix the problem is more important than just getting it done fast (unless you're being paid lots to do it quickly/correctly).

As for "tips on being quicker"... that will come with experience, but also depends entirely on the issue you're trying to fix. Some things you'll be able to recognize and fix quickly, others will require research and multiple steps of troubleshooting.

I'm working on a customers Windows Vista computer that was badly infected with all sorts of adware and other malware. After manually removing some of the most obvious offenders with RevoUninstaller, I then proceeded to run MalwareBytes.
 
MalwareBytes ran for over 40 hours and seemed to be hung up with processing temporary internet files (I could see the filenames changing so figure it was still working albeit very slowly), so I finally aborted the scan and had it clean up what it had found to that point. Then rebooted the system.
 
Thinking that the next thing to do would be to run TFC and see if I couldn't get rid of some of that internet history (so I could then re-attempt the scan and hope for a successful completion). I started that running from my flash drive as I usually do. It seemed to run fine processing through some of the user accounts but when it got to the user account that is used most of the time and finding 137GB (yes I said gigabytes) of temporary files it seemed to hang there.

It should start after one short press. Unplug the power lead for few minutes, then plug it back and press power button once for 2 sek. Other thing you can do is to reset bios to factory settings, press f12 when computer starts and chose settings. If that doesn't help then your motherboard is faulty.

Question: Scans taking long

Hello all I have noticed that scanning with Superantispyware/Avira is taking a long time. The scan seems to spend most of the time scanning cache/cache.recyclebin/temp folders. I have a 1tb Western digital caviar black drive. Around 200gb of the 1tb is being used. Takes around an hour to scan the drive. Any ideas? I doubt I have a virus(No slowdowns, errors and such)but I'm not ruling that out.
 

Answer:Scans taking long

In SAS for 200GB an hour would be about right for a Full Scan, but not for a Quick Scan. Not sure how long Avira would take, but when I used that AV I remember it being pretty slow.

Are your cache/temp folders full of stuff is why it's taking so long? If you keep them cleaned out with CCleaner or similar then SAS and Avira should breeze right through them.

My current PC is one month old and the antivirus scan with Avira used to take around 10 minutes. It hovered around this time until recently, then it's suddenly taking almost a hour. I thought this was because of the time it takes to scan personal data like hundreds of gigs of games and music, but the 99% of the time it was scanning... pic related.
Basically a lot of files, each one named like in the pic, each individual one taking a long time (the counter would be at, let's say, 367888 files scanned, stay like that for four seconds and then go to 367889, rinse and repeat for fifty minutes) when it's usually thousand of files every second.
I'm sure my PC is safe with no viruses whatsoever, I'm just curios: what exactly ARE those files to require such a slow scan? I guess some vital OS files, but how come I have so many of them when I didn't just a few days ago (keep in mind I didn't download anything other than regular Windows Updates)? Is there any way I can clean or remove them up to quicken the process?

Answer:What's in my OS that's taking so long to scan?

Not a computer guru but I see that you are using a "Free Virus program". Now windows updates contain some very big files and Your virus program will take longer to scan. So a free virus program is not going to give the same performance as those that you buy. Do you know that "Comcast" customers get "Norton Suite" (a security and virus program) for free whereas others have to pay for it? Its not automatic. You need to download it from the Comcast site. It has backup & restore program built in as well as other features.

Hi there,

Well atm my desktop PC is a intel dual core 2 with 1 GHz ram... I am using nero to copy dvds and it seems that it is taking way too long to burn a single dvd... Like 55 minutes to be exact.

It only takes me roughly 12 minutes on my notebook. Would someone be able to tell me why i is taking so long? Is it hardware related or software or maybe abit of both... My firned has the exact pc and i have told him to try test out by burning a movie to see how long it takes... i havent notice how long the porblems has been existing.. I ahve used such programs as Nero 7 Esstentials, DVD shrink etc... Does anyone know what program would be fastest to burn? i think atm i am burning at 16x tho its the smae speed on my notebook but the time differnece varies greatly.. Please help???

T.T
 

Answer:Burning DVD taking too long?

Try burning at a slower speed, like 8x. Watch the buffer in Nero, does it fill up and then empty constantly? I'm talking about the big buffer bar, not the small one that is the drive buffer, although that should be consistently above 85%.

Its possible your drive is in PIO mode rather than DMA so you should check that out too.

Answer:boot up taking too long with IE7

Had something similar just after installing IE7 on one machine. Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall IE7. Reboot and you should have reverted to IE6. Then go to Windows Update and re-install IE7. Check Windows updates for Optional Software updates, there should be a few for IE7. Do this at least twice because I seem to remember that there are updates for updates!!!

The bar (to indication progression of installation) goes across the screen quite quickly to about the half way point and then just sits there for hours.
I've let it stay for three hours to date and it won't go any further although the bar animation is still working away.
Is it that it just takes a very long time to install (maybe overnight might work?) or is it hanging through some reason or other?

When I turn on the CPU and monitor, the monitor light keeps blinking for about every 3 seconds for about 5 hours (sometimes more) and then the monitor finally turns on. How long it takes for it to finally turn on depends on how long it has been turned off. One time, I turned it on after it had been off for about 30 minutes, and it only took about 15 minutes to turn on rather than 5 hours. My friend is telling me that there might be a problem with the graphics card, but the thing is, when the monitor finally does turn on, there is nothing wrong with the picture, it works perfectly; the only problem is that it takes too long to turn on.
So, what should I do to fix this problem?

Extremely Long Time Taken To Install Updates
Approximately 2 days ago Windows tried to install 12 updates. It got stuck on update number 2 for at least 2.5 - 3 hours. I eventually had to do a hard shutdown so I could move on to my linux distros and get some work done. I'm reluctant to boot windows because I fear I'll be forced to do the same. Is there a remedy for this? Thank you. BTW this is Win 7.

Yesterday I had the same problem except this time it was hung-up trying to install update 9 of 11. Went off to do something and came back in 2 hours and it was still trying to install update 9 of 11.
Once again I had to turn power off so I could use the computer. Is there some other way to shutdown when it gets stuck like that? I hate to do a hard shutdown. I'm reluctant to boot Windows for fear the same thing will happen. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Updates Taking Too Long To Install

This month's massive round of updates are causing wide spread grief. If it's any comfort, you're hardly alone.

You can either delete the contents of the subfolder where the updates are stored, Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download , and then the updates not installed will be downloaded again
or, download, save, and then run the Fixit found on the following KB article with all programs and web browsers being closed - How do I reset Windows Update components ?

When you run MicrosoftFixit50202.msi you would need to choose the Aggressive mode to delete the contents of the Download subfolder. That also deletes the update history shown in Windows Update when you click the View update history link.

The updates are not uninstalled and they can be viewed by checking Installed Updates.

When the Fixit has finished running restart the system.

Hi guys,

I'll start with spec then work my way to my question. I have a P8Z77-V Pro mobo, i5-3570k CPU, 8GB RAM 2000Mhz, NVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti, 128GB OCZ Petrol SSD, 2TB Barracuda HDD and I'm running on Windows 7.

I was using my SSD as my primary drive and storing everything else on my HDD. Couple of Fridays ago, I got impatient with the speed at which my computer was shutting down, so I held the power button in for however long it took to cut the power. After work, I turned on my computer and got an 'Error reading disk' (white font on black screen), I rebooted and got a 'Please insert bootable drive and restart' (or something like that). I put Live Ubuntu onto my USB stick and partitioned my 2TB to hold Windows 7 so I could at least boot into Windows 7.
Since 2nd July, I've been running chkdsk /f F: (which was the drive my SSD was assigned to) and it's still going. It's corrected 16 errors (in index $130) since it started but for the last 36 odd hours it's been stuck correcting an error.

Am I doing the right thing here? Should it take this long to correct one error? It hasn't taken this long with the other 16.
 

Answer:Chkdsk taking a long time

OCZ Petrol SSDs are not good quality and have a very high rate of both failures and returns. Many of the older OCZs had similar problems; the latest range seems to be better, at least for the more costly models.

For reliable SSDs, stick with Intel, Crucial, Samsung and, probably, Plextor. Most of the others, while they may score well for value or speed, are simply not worth the risk.

You may have a bad charger, cable or port. Swap out the first two. If that doesn't fix it... inspect the port and make sure there is no lint in there...

I am working on A Vista Home premium SP2 (fully updated) machine that takes forever to connect to the internet, upwards of a minute or so, i have never seen this, all my other machines are connected instantaneously.
Im not even sure what to start diagnosing its like the connection is one of the last things it does after booting, very rarely after a reboot its connects quickly.
device manager showed two instances of ISATAP networking devices that weren't working properly, i uninstalled them and they haven't reappeared, symptoms stay the same.
All drivers seem to be up to date.

This happens whether its hardwired to the router or wireless.

Any thoughts on fixing this?

Answer:System Restore - taking too long?

Hi Neil,

System Restore can be a bit slow at times, but is generally able to complete its task within 15 minutes. 30 hours is a bit on the extreme side and would point to a corrupt restore point or even a corrupt system file. It could also indicate serious problems with your hard drive. You could also try running an SFC check System Files - SFC Command, but the chances are that your system is corrupt. I would be inclined to reinstall Vista either from your recovery discs or from the recovery partition which is available after the BIOS has finished its POST (see manual for details).

Hi, i'm trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate x86 on an HP 430 laptop.
The Windows installer can't find the laptop's hard drive so (as a solution I found while googling) I tried DISKPART's clean and clean all functions.
The clean function finished quickly but the clean all has been going on for more than 24 hours now.
Is it supposed to take this long?
The laptop has a ~500gb hard drive and an i3 processor.

Answer:DISKPART Clean All taking too long

Takes about 300gb a hour.

Hi folks,
Recently my PC is taking a very long time to start up. It can be 10 minutes or more before I can open Firefox. I thought it was caused by AVG so removed that and installed Avast having failed to install Trend Titanium as it kept telling me my Internet Explorer was not up to date even though it was.
I gave up trying and installed Avast free version along with Malware Bytes though I now only have the Windows firewall. I looked at Zone Alarm and Comodo firewalls but both wanted me to make certain things my default so I didn't go ahead.
This morning having waited a long time for the PC to wake up, I restarted it and then it came alive quite quickly.
I have done full scans with both Avast and Malware Bytes and two issues were found by Avast and moved to chest. MBAM found nothing.
PC is Dell Dimension 5150 with 1 GB of ram running XP SP3.
Any thoughts on the above, folks?
Thanks

Answer:PC taking a long time to start up.

Another couple of GB's of RAM for a start. I do not know how long you have had your PC but looking at the specs (P4 CPU) it is pretty old.
After adding more RAM you might want to think about a clean install of Windows XP + SP3. But that would require a bit of preparation.

I would suspect a settings problem. In my ancient laptop it takes 1.5 secs to lock and 5 to unlock. You could create another user and check the time there. If it is shorter you could transfer your things to it.

After about roughly 3 minutes, I hear another fan go super fast (this is normal, has happened since I got the PC) then stop and then the computer does its POST test.

Those are just a few but you need to specify as much as possible

As for warranty work? It depends on the warranty but if done through an ASC for the manufacturer then first ensure you call the manufacturer's support line and get a case/ticket number and the operator number of the tech. who takes your call and authorizes the warranty repair...

From the service center ensure you get proper receipts as well as copy of work order with what was done, when, part numbers, and list of any tests to verify repair...To wit, just be a smart consumer and get verification for what you can...BOL

Hi guys...I'm back again!  We do not use our laptop very often.  The last time updates were done was Feb. 18, 2017.  Well, now I have 54 updates to do and I have had the computer on supposedly updating me, however, it has been over 24 hours. I clicked on to stop download but it said it hasn't finished.  After they are downloaded, then they need to be installed which doesn't take so long, I think.  Anyway, is this unusual for it to be going over 24 hours?  It says it is Downloading 54 updates, so far 0% complete.  It's a Dell Inspirion, Intel Core I-5-3210M CPU @ 2.50 GHz, Ram 8.00 GB 64-bit operating system.  It's Windows 7.

that does seem excessively longer than usual, but with downloads, it's not your PC specs that are important, it's your internet speed.and you do have 6months worth to catch up on!you've given it 24hrs, I'd be rebooting the PC and checking for updates again.maybe also unticking them all and just ticking a few at a time to see if they at least come through that way.

I'm not sure what was wrong, but it was taking a very long time for my laptop to shut itself down.
~10mins? ~15mins? Somewhere along the lines of that...definitely not the proper shut down sequence. I'm also not sure why this started happening...

Something seems to have caused a hang-up or some kind of error/problem with shutting down. Everything else seems to be working fine when the computer is turned on. It's just the shut down that seems to be having some issues.

So I was trying to read and troubleshoot this to see if I could figure out what was wrong. Here are some of the things I did:

I booted into safemode and tried shutting down, and it still took quite a long time.
I did a full scan with my antivirus program (Kaspersky Internet Security 2014) and it was clean.
I did a full scan with Malwarebytes and it was clean.
I ran the '' /sfc scannow " and it verified everything was okay.
I did the 'error-checking' CHKDSK scan (after rebooting it scanned) and reported that everything seemed okay.
Manually ran Windows Update to make sure my system was up-to-date. Everything is up-to-date.
After trying to find out/read other topics and suggestions with people experiencing the similar problems, I was wondering if there was something wrong with my system pagefile?

Hi, I need helpMy computer told me to do an update of my bios. I didn't know what it really was or if it was dangerous to my laptop so I said yes. It's been 9hours now since the beginning of the updates and all I can see is a black screen, the caps lock light flashing, the pad and wifi light are on and the fan is on too.I read that bios update could be dangerous and that I might lose my laptop if it failed... What should I do? I have nothing telling me if the update is going on or if it froze...I have a Pavilion DV6Help me please, I don't want my laptop to die ;_;

Answer:Bios update taking too long?

A successful BIOS update only takes a couple of minutes at most. Is your notebook still in warranty? Warranty status check web page What is the complete product name and product number?  dv6 just is not enough identification. Remove the battery and look in the compartment where the battery was installed. You should see a Service tag with printed part number and a product name. Please post the p/n (with all alphanumeric characters here). If you live outside of North America, it helps us if you post the country of purchase.Don't forget to post the name of the installed operating system.Best regards,erico

I have a HP presario cq56-115dx. the product number is XG809UA#ABA. WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM

Answer:Bios update taking too long?

Your notebook is a 2010 version. It has a legacy BIOS. The BIOS corruption recovery for UEFI models produced in 2012 and more recent won't work for your notebook. You can try extracting a current BIOS .ROM and .SIG file to a usb flash drive, plugging it into one of the notebook's USB ports and booting up. It may or may not recover the BIOS. Otherwise, only replacement of the BIOS chip with one that has a fresh BIOS flashed into it will serve as a repair  for your notebook at a reasonable cost.   That is a pretty involved repair and is something usually done by a BIOS repair company. Search online for one and get a price for the repair from them.

How long does it take to get W10 after reserving

Answer:Windows 10 upgrade taking too long??

Why wait, get it now as an .iso or DVD file or USB and install whenever you want. Microsoft Link from Fruit Bat /\0/\ click here it's just taken me less than an hour.
Download then use the media creation tool to create your own installation media with either a USB flash drive or a DVD. The tool provides file formats optimised for download speed and can be used to create ISO files

Ok so I ran defrag last night for the first time in roughly 3 months i guess.

I'm using the standard defrag utility that comes with Vista, seriously.. it's been around 10 hours and it's still not done. How long does a defrag generally take? I know it's working because my hard drive has been working this whole time.. Is a defrag really necessary if it's going to take this long?

Answer:Jeez, Defrag is taking way to long?

defrags usually take a long time if its a while since you done it, usually though its about 3 to 4 hours, if its done more often it will take a shorter time to run.

My neighbor's laptop hdd seemed not to be working right, he had left the laptop in the closet for 2 years anyway, so it seemed not a loss to run a utility that might bring the hdd back [might not], so I started the low level hdd pre-format from a disc I had been given.

That was about a month ago, and the 250 gb hdd is still not done. Should it really take this long, or is the hdd totalled?

Answer:Low level HDD pre-format taking too long

What kind of utility are you using to format a drive? One month is way too long. Full format on 250GB drive should take a couple of hours at most.
