That does seem like a long time.....mine takes about 15 seconds from pressing the button to complete shutdown.....it used to be virtually instantaneous in win 98....though winXP (as i understand it) prevents you accidentally losing data by stalling that, as well as "saving settings" etc etc.....
I spose as long as it shuts down properly, that is more important than how long it takes....im sure the forum guys here will be able to tell you if 2 minutes is excessive and give you a few pointers...
Hey Electronic Punk....where is that option to disable NAV 2002 from checking floppies at shutdown. I have been through the options and I cant find it.
My system takes about 1 minute to shutdown and I have disabled all the items mentioned above except NAV2002 scanning floppies.
I am running an ELSA (NVidia) GeForce2 GTS Video Card with the 27.42 beta drivers (they seem to be the only ones I have found not to crash my system). But my system still takes forever to shut down. I cant seem to find the cause.
Is something I am going to play with when I get back up to Sheffield.
I have told me housemate to map all my shared harddrives in my flat to a drive on the server, I now have read/write access on my ftp, so I am backing it up from about 200 miles away so I can format as soon as I get back.
Just got myself an AthlonXP and am itching to try it
If I put it in my dads, I am sure I won't get it back
