I have a HP dv8000 notebook, which suddenly began to have problems yesterday. It started running very slowly, so I restarted it.
The computer took several minutes to shut down. When I tried to turn it back on, it booted up very slowly - 20 minutes to the desktop. It continued to run slowly.
I managed with the slowness, and tried to watch a video - no audio played, and it told me that there were no mixers installed. I fixed this audio problem by uninstalling some of the audio drivers and re-installing them. The audio now works, but both audio/video stutter very badly.
I cancelled a lot of startup programs in an effort to fix the lagging boot-up - But it is still taking half an hour anytime I restart the computer.
Everything is working sluggishly, but the worst is the boot-up taking over half an hour.
I have run spybot and symantec anti-virus, both of which have found nothing.
Any ideas as to what my problem might be? Hopefully I have provided enough information.:smileyhappy:
