It sounds like you are going to need help with finding out why Mint is taking so long at booting up and shutting down.

I'm sorry I'm not good with booting but I'm sure that there are skilled members here that are good with that.

The closest I came to booting any Ubuntu system faster is here in my blog:

If booting is sufficiently succeeding, you can access various tools and discover clues to delays using various means in an xterm or login shell doing Ctrl-Alt-F2, including:
Code:
systemd-analyze blame
journalctl -b | egrep -i 'failed|warn'
dmesg | egrep -i 'failed|warn'
inxi -Gxx
To use them may require prepending sudo to each, or logging in as root. If you are unable to discern from their output how to proceed, post those messages here by saving their output to one or more files by appending '>>somefilename' to each command, then copying the file(s) here using code (#) tags.

You won't get any updates for Mint 17 beyond mid-2019.

at the grub prompt press e to edit the mint grub entry, delete quiet and splash on the linux line then boot to see what is happening to cause booting to take so long

How long is it taking to boot? Do you ever get to the gui login?

Does booting the Mint 19 live distro (from USB) take an unusually long time (for a live USB boot)?

When you reboot,
( As per @colorpurple21859 )
Press and hold Shift during initial startup to see the Grub menu.
Press the 'e' key
You can now use the arrow keys to position and delete the words quiet splash.
Press enter to boot the PC - you will see many messages on the screen - something (probably containing the word error) may indicate the problem.

Note: these changes are not permanent - your changes will disappear from Grub on the next reboot.

That was a reasonable boot time (but lots of subsystems failing) - did you reduce the timeout period as per https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...-faster-37621/ ?

dear friends how can I do this ???

Run uname -r in a terminal. If it says 4.15.0-24 then reboot, after the bios screen/logo press shift to get into GRUB boot menu, select advanced, select a lower version kernel (likely you only have 4.15.0-20).

Assuming the boot now went fine, open Update Manager > View > Linux Kernels and remove the -24 kernel. Don't install that version again, wait until -26 or higher gets released.

It looks like one of two things: old hardware or incorrect architecture for the OS. What kind of hardware are you using; how old is it? Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit Linux? I wouldn't worry about the errors. Everything probably succeeded later in the process.
