How to restart or shutdown a computer through a remote desktop connection


When you are connected to another computer by remote desktop, did you ever notice that the shutdown and restart options are not there. The computer that you remote desktop to must already be on. But if you regularly use remote desktop, at some stage you will want to restart the remote computer from where you are. For example you might install a program and you need to restart the computer to finish the installation. If this doesn't happen automatically then you can follow the steps below.

How to Reboot or Shutdown a Machine from Remote Desktop Connection using Windows XP?
  1. Open the run box by pressing the WINKEY and the letter R on the keyboard.
  2. Type the following command into the run box: shutdown -r -f
  3. Press Ok.
  4. This will restart the remote computer.
If you would like to shutdown the Windows Xp remote computer you can type: shutdown -f
When you are typing these commands in you must type it exactly right. If you miss a space or a dash it will not work.

Restart a remote computer using Windows Vista or Windows Seven.
On these newer operating systems the run box is almost obsolete. You only have to open the start menu and type these commands into the search bar at the bottom. This area acts as a run box and you can type commands into this.

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

.
If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
3.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
1.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
2.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

Dll driving me nuts


Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.

My hp 7965 pc desktop (pavillion) starts fine but when loading windows xp, it gets to a piont and restarts the computer completely, over and over again. HELP please!!


Some Software Applications May Cause Windows Stop Responding or Restart During Startup or Boot in Windows XP.

If a PC that has been working properly fails to startup or boot, especially after a new application or driver is installed, it is necessary to perform one or more of the following methods to correct the problem. The PC may lockup, freeze, hang, or automatically restart when the Windows Desktop first displays during startup.
Method 1: Disabling automatic restart
This method disables automatic restart if you are unable to view Windows Desktop and/or the notebook continues rebooting automatically (whether by the user or the notebook continues booting without user intervention).
1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.
2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Disable automatic restart on system failure and then press the Enter key.
3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).
4. Press the Enter key. Windows should start.

Method 2: Use last known good configuration
Using the last known good configuration may allow the pc to boot to Windows using the most recent settings that worked.
1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.
2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) and then press the Enter key.
3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).
4.Press the Enter key.

Method 3: Use System Restore to reset Windows to an earlier known safe operating point
This method reverses recent operating system changes to the notebook PC, such as the installation of new software, and takes the computer back to a previous working state. This method may uninstall or remove the software that is causing the problem. Check with the software manufacturer for any known problems and reinstall the software if appropriate.
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 5 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Advanced Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and press ENTER .
The computer may run slower in the Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. Click Start , then click Help and Support .
3. On the Help and Support home page, click System Restore .
4. On the System Restore page, select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option and click Next .
5. Navigate through the calendar looking for a highlighted date and select a restore point date and time that is earlier than when you started experiencing the problem, then click Next .
The computer should shut down and turn back on by itself after the restoration completes. When the Restoration Complete window appears, click OK to continue.

Method 4: Uninstall recently installed applications using Add/Remove Programs
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and press ENTER .
The computer may run slower in Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. On the Windows taskbar click Start , click Control Panel and then click Add or Remove Programs .
3. Navigate through the alphabetical list of all installed programs and select the name of the most recently installed program or programs.
4. Click Remove , click OK when prompted to verify the removal of the program.
5. Restart the computer by selecting Start , Shutdown , and Restart .
- If the computer starts up properly, contact the software manufacturer for updated instructions for a proper installation.
- If the computer does not start up properly, reboot the computer in the Safe Mode and repeat the methods for uninstalling any other recently installed software.

Method 5: Remove applications that load during startup using the System Configuration Utility
If the system fails to start properly after installing a new software application, there may be conflicts with the application if it loads during startup. To resolve the problem, it may be necessary to use the System Configuration Utility to remove the application from Windows startup, or to change the startup sequence.
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and click ENTER .
The computer may run slower in Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. Click Start , click Run , type MSCONFIG , then click OK .
3. On the System Configuration Utility window, on the General tab, select Selective Startup option, and unselect the Load Startup Items .
4. Click OK and then click Restart .
The computer should restart and operate properly even without loading any of the startup items. Most startup items are helpful utilities that run in the background or sit in the system tray until they are needed.
- If the computer does not restart and operate properly, there is a more severe problem and performing the method for reinstalling the Windows OS may be necessary.
- If the computer restarts properly, examine and enable the entries under the startup tab.

How to restart hp pavillion 7965 desktop


Hi there. Try these steps:

1. On restart, press F8. This should bring you to a screen with various boot options.

2. Select "Last known good configuration". Windows then may load correctly.

3. If this doesn;t work, try the same thing. This time select "boot in Safe Mode". If Windows now loads in Safe Mode you should be able to restart and Windows may load correctly after this.

4. If these two both fail, you may have to repair Windows...
