  1. My computer has started to take about a minute to shut down and it's really bothersome when it use to shut down instantly the screen comes up and says "Widows is now shutting down" then my amber light comes on and stays solid for about a minute then my computer shuts down . . . any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Just do a Yahoo or Google search for speed up shutdown time and you will find plenty of suggestions.

    Can you check and see what processes are running at that time and have you checked to make sure your hard drive does not have any errors and that it does not need to be defragged?
