Hi there!

I'm a long time lurker from Amsterdam.

 

Absolutely fabulous site this is!

 

Now I have a question...

 

In the past few weeks, the computer takes about 5 minutes to shut down and reboot.

 

When I click on 'Turn off Computer' to shut down, the hourglass comes up and stays up for about 3-5 minutes.

 

Then the shutdown/reboot process continues as usual but also very slow.

 

Any idea what's going on?

  • Hit the Start button then.
  • Right Click My computer
  • Properties
  • Harwdare Tab
  • Device Manager.
  • Scroll down to the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controlers Left click the + to the left of the drivers.
  • Right Click and uninstall all of your Primary IDE drivers.
  • There most likely will be more than one of the Primary IDE Drivers!!
  • Make sure and un-install All of them prior to rebooting.
  • Make sure that you only remove the Primary IDE Drivers nothing else
  • Reboot the machine.
  • Another request will be made to reboot after the initial.
  • Reboot again.

Thanx for your reply!

 

  • Hit the Start button then.
  • Right Click My computer
  • Properties
  • Harwdare Tab
  • Device Manager.
  • Scroll down to the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controlers Left click the + to the left of the drivers.

 

 

 

 

 

After Left click the + I see:

- ATI PCI IDE Bus Master Controller

- Primary IDE Channel

- Secondary IDE Channel

 

Should I go to the Primary IDE Channel & than click the 'Driver' section and  Uninstall?
