Windows 7 won't shut down


I've got a problem with my system. About a week ago I installed 1GB Intel Turbo Memory in my Compal FL90 laptop, and i thing that's the reason of my problem. When the PC works few hours, and then when i try to shut it down, the system freezez on the shut down window, and There is only the shut down screen and the blue spinning thing. The PC shuts down, but after 15-20minutes, and thats far from the normal speed from 50sec The shut down issue happens only after few huors of work, because when i try to restart after boot everyting works properly. I've installed the latest drivers from intel for Windows 7.

Has anyone an idea what could i do?
