Acer Laptop power button only works randomly?

Acer / 5920g
October 24, 2010 at 16:30:10
Specs: Windows 7, 2 Duo T7500 2,2 GHz, 2GB RAM
I have a Acer 5920G, and the big problem is the power button. Sometimes it only takes about 15 seconds, other times it could take over 3 minutes. Sometimes it takes so long time that i just give up. I'm actually using this pc right now, and it works completely perfect - when it's finally powered on. I've searched alot around at google etc, but i can't find anything about it. ANY ideas at all how I could fix this?

mmmmmm...

can't you change it? if is too old, then buy a new better one.

if you don't want or can, then take it to the tech. the second one is an option, i think here anyone trust the technician.

perhaps you can clear the system to speed up but some thing can not change completely since the machine is old itself.

"perhaps you can clear the system to speed up but some thing can not change completely since the machine is old itself."

where are these people coming from???

Dead_Mile, go into msconfig and turn off the startup items and reboot. Sounds like you probably have everyone and their dog running at startup...that would make things really slow.

Then use Ccleaner slim to clean out all your junk files and also run the registry cleaner on it and clear that out too.
Then try malwarebytes and remove all it finds. See if that speeds things up again.

2GB of ram is not bad, but if you double that things will speed up too. Go to

and run their scanner to see how much your PC will take.

I have tried that to, but it doesn't help. But i think 2 GB ram should be enough to start a computer?
