    Slow start and shutdown on Windows XP pro

    Hi

    I have just changed the screen and backlight on one of our fujitsu siemens laptop and for some reason the start is very slow and shutdown is almost taking up to 5 to 6 mins!

    COuld this be a hardware or software issue? Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Why was the screen changed? was it dropped?

    There could be other damage.

    Either way i would factory restore the laptop to ensure its not a software problem.

    It might be the user hurled the laptop because it was too slow....

    Hi

    I would start with is it overheating, hard drive test, startup programs, virus or broken sophos, spyware.

    According to the user, the laptop was started one day and it was just on a dark screen, you could see windows loading but very faded in the background!

    Laptop didn't look like as if it had been dropped but you never know!

    It sounds like the backlight. But the real question is did it break or was it broken.
