    Might you need to flash the geforce bios? New drivers?

    dont format yet

    go into adminstrative services and completly disable the nvidia driver helper service. that should help although 7 min is a long time.....;)

    Slow shut down

    Before you go through a bid deal - check this:
    If you have a Nvidia card - go to services and disable nivida driver helper - this will kill ~20-30sec off you shut down time. If you don't have an Nvidia card then the previous advise may help.
