    My pc suffers some problem, it shutdowns at the middle of the work. Then after that it now boots very sloooow...

    Even after I tried some suggested configuration settings found on the net, still didn't work...still booting so slow.

    How to make it boot faster?

    1. Make sure u didn't have too many start up item
    2. Clean junk and temp file
    3. Remove unecessary program
    4. Defrag the HDD if it become too fragmented
    5. If everything else failed, fresh install would be a good solution ;)

    Would check whether it is not overheating. Tons of dust, spiders, rats etc. tend to accumulate in the CPU cooler/fan over time. :eek:

    On a serious note - with modern CPUs and BIOSes, overheating -> lowered CPU frequency, and it that is not enough, the computer shuts down.

    I agree, under certain circumstances the the CPU will automatically get lowered and will cause the Pc to boot slower, so recheck the CPU frequency.

    do a scandisk on all your drives/partitions. make sure the box to fix errors are checked. If you have corrupted files that will cause the computer to bootup slow. also check your cpu and see how hard it's working, at idle it should be less than 5 percent.

    Nothing, BIOS will autodetect it. As said, if your CPU is overheating, the frequency will get lowered and there is not anything you could do with that. Open the case and do come inspection and cleaning if needed.
