Hi,

My laptop is aspire e1-572g window8.1

Few days ago,my laptop boot time increase from below 15sec to 50+second and cannot shutdown completely.When i shutdown the laptop,it stuck at a black screen but the power light is still on.So i had to do a hardshutdown by pressing the power for few seconds.I remember that the only change i made on that day is install AMD Catalyst install manager and Intel Driver Update Ultility.I also update the AMD graphic driver to omega 14.12 using AMD's autodetectutility.I wonder if is the new AMD drivers makes my laptop suffer such problem?Should i rollback the driver version?If not how to fix it?

Sorry for bad english.

You don't need to load your system with any update apps/ utilities.

 

Windows Update will deal with driver updates for you.

Perform a clean boot in Windows OS to find out if any startup program or services causing the problem.

Yes Windows Updates are important.  Set them to download but let you choose to install.  Check the updates to see what they are going to do.

 

Each update has a KB number, you can check what the update is and why it is needed.

 

The security patches from Microsoft are installed via Windows Update.
