System freezing while SHUT DOWN

Hi everyone

I've windows 7 ultimate. I installed a 1GB intel turbo memory into my laptop. 512MB for ready boost and 512 for ready drive.
When I turn on the ready boost option, and after a few hour's of work on my PC when i try to shut down it, i see only dle blue "buld" and shut down screen. The shut down process takes about 40minutes and this drives me crazy. When i turn of ReadyBoost everything works properly.

Any ideas?

Seems to be an incompatibility between ready boost and your system. You might try installing motherboard drivers on your laptop, as well as chipset drivers.

Maybe a bad flashdrive or USB driver.

it's a Intel Turbo Memory device plugged in into the MPCIE slot. Maybe it's broken, but it would be strange that's the ready drive works properly.

Intel Turbo memory? If I recall, that is an old type of RAM or something...
Yeah, it is.

Ok, how old is this computer? I don't think Intel has put that in any new computers for years.

I also recommend taking it out and trying your system without it.
