y does my system take so long to shutdown and go into safe mode?


oO ShifterZ Oo

i dont really go into safe mode much, inless i change a boot screen or do something that requires that no system rescoures are being used or something like that, mostly about bootscreen. I just wanted to know why does it take so long to go into safe mode. I used to get in quick just like when i boot in normal mode. Any suggestions?

Also when i shutdown it takes long to shutdown too, i dunno y, is it cuz i leave my computer on too long, LOL. Well let me know?

My boot time is good when i start up

-i have the lastest offical denator drivers.
-xp pro sys
Don't know about safe mode, never been there with XP!:cool: as to slow shutdown could be your video card, are you running nvidia drivers?

Check under admin tools 'services' (if xp pro) and disable nvidia driver helper.

Yes, either the nvidia helper or go into your registry and look for local machine-> system-> controlset001-> controlwaittokillservicetimeout

Set it to a low number like 2000 .
