Laptop won't shut down. It goes through the motions, I press start, shutdown, shut down and it tells me windows is shutting down, screen goes black, then it reboots and wont turn off. I have to pull the plug out (if wired) or remove battery.

My laptop won't shut down - it goes to the shutdown screen with the "logging off" on it but that's as far as it gets. I have to hold down the power button, but this is happening now every time I try to...


you have some process that gets stuck. try the follow:
  1. start your computer and press F8 to load Windows in safe mode.
  • now shut it down and see if it worked.
  • if it didn't work, try to load windows on safe mode with no network and see if it shuts down
2. did you install anything lately? if so, try to remove it and see if it fixed the problem. 3. before you shut down, press CTR+SHIFT+ESC and check the processes running. look for the processes that are consuming a lot of memory or CPU and check on google if those should be running or not.

My XPS 1530 will not shutdown, it only restarts


Try running chkdsk /r and then restart the computer. to do that, click on START, RUN, in the open field, type 'cmd' and press <enter>. A dos window will open. At the blinking cursor, type 'chkdsk /r' and press <enter>. You will get a message that the drive can't be locked and do you want to run it the next time Windows starts. Type 'y' and press <enter>. Now shutdown the computerand restart it. Chkdsk will run and it may take some time. Depending on your installation, you will see a blue screen that will show the progress. Sometimes the screen will stay black and the hard drive light will flash. That's ok. Let it run until Windows loads. Wait until it is completely loaded and then try shutting it down normally.

Good luck and let me know how it works out.

Laptop won't shut down normally!


You should go to the BIOS and load the default settings. Also, check your device manager to check if all hardware is installed and functioning properly (no conflicts, etc).

HP dv6835tx Notebook with Visa Ultimate 64-bit will not shut down


From what you've described, it sounds like you are clicking the Standby button, instead of the actual shutdown option. On the Start button, you will see (from left to right); Left: Start Search Middle: Standby Middle: Lock Right: Arrow Clicking the arrow will show you the Shutdown menu option; http://blogs.chron.com/techblog/archives/shutdown.jpg

Viao PCG-GRX650 won't shut down fully


DaveBaker,

Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.


Go to start>run>then type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely.

Next
Try doing this. Hold down "ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick.

And, finally

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831431
You cannot log off, restart, or shut down your Windows XP-based computer This article talks about an issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.


Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you.
Thanks much!
Ron-
