hello

in the past few days , my laptop takes a long time to turn on . I takes about 4-5 hours with just black screen.

Is this caused by a virus ?

Welcome,

There is a cause but it sounds more like a hardware problem. What have you done to try and determine what's happening? Starting in safe mode any faster? How old is the system and what are the specs - hardware and software, both names and versions.

Thanks

As dicke said this sounds like a hardware issue.  My guess would be a failing hard drive.  I'd advise backing up before you start troubleshooting the issue.
