Default Force carbing

If I crank up the PSI to like 60, will it carb any faster?

I think you would risk over carbing at 60, I never go higher than 30

Have you shaked the keg to allow the CO2 to dissolve in the beer?

I always shake at 30, leave overnight and go down to 10-12 for a couple of days and it's carbed by then. I would be a little iffy leaving it at 60, be patient.

Oh, it is very cold, it just seems to be taking forever, I haven't checked in a few days so it may be good now

If you use a .5 micron diffuser stone the beer will be fully carbed in 2 or 3 days (2 days for my porters and stouts, 3 for my bocks and ales), depending on the style and CO2 volumes you're after.
