Many computers have way too many things running in the background. If you see more than three or four little icons down just to the left of the clock, (this area is called the System Tray), some of these programs could be causing your problems.
Use Windows Explorer and navigate to:

C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Adjust the size of your Windows Explorer so you can see some of your desktop and drag everything in the Startup folder out on the desktop, and then restart your computer. If this minimizes, or eliminates your problem, put each item back in the Startup folder, one-at-a-time, and restart and re-test your computer until you locate the offending program.

If your computer shut off but the power keep on means that your computer is in hibernate mode
To avoid that, do this:

Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options

Unckeck the hibernatge mode at hiberbate tab.

This will fix your problem.

My laptop worked fine on night then in the morning i started having problems. These are the problem that i am having my with my HP Pavillion 6910us Laptop. 1. My laptop comes on but cuts off after 5 to 6...


Hi
At some point if you can get the computer to stay up for a while, you should go into control panel and check your
POWER settings. The other thing you should try if you haven't already is to shut the computer off and pull out the battery. Then after a minute re-install the battery and see
if that helps.

Good Luck
Joe
ps: If I come up with any ideas I will post.

There may be nothing running in task manager that you can see but there is still something running,My advice is to take it to your local Geek Squad or preferred computer tech you most likely have a virus that is slowing down your computer process.

Stand-by button has lost its tautness-on start up pc slow and reverts to black screen for a time


For every piece of software besides windows that starts when you power on your computer, some of the computer performance is sacraficed. this will cause the computer to hesitate , perhaps show a blank or black screen a little longer as the computer starts or comes out of hibernation.
Most of the software you install will have a little box stating something like "start when windows starts" that is checked by default when you install it. always pay attention and read as all of these will slow down your computer if running at startup.
hit CTRL+ALT+DEL once your computer is fully started, this will open your task manager.
select the PROCESSES tab and count or go to the bottom and see how many processes are running right when you start the computer.
Most of these can be turned off, windows only needs about 20 to run efficiently wiuth networking, granted there will be some for the printer also.
write down what you see and and programs that dont need to be running can be set , either in thier preferences or windows settings to not run , thus speeding up the computer..
please post here again after you have checked this and i will assist you if you have more questions.

An infection could cause the issues your having. I recommend letting a professional help you clean your system. Removing infections is very dangerous and risky. They can cause data loss and you risk making the system worse. I recommend NickLockard.com

Your computer shuts down slowly because there are a lot of services that run in the background that have to close before the computer shuts down.

Another reason that it will be slow is because of some programs that stay in residence have to close too.

Running defrag and scandisk will sometimes speed up startup and shutdown.

I would look at some third party applications that clear up the memory while you are on the PDA / JAM. You can also go into the settings function, memory and view running programs.

One of the earlier version flaws of Windows 2003 is that it does not offer a shut down menu on the Today Screen. There are quite a few freeware applications that allow you to shut down running programs. I tend to run one or two programs - maximum at a time. This is not a laptop. I find my touch screen unresponsive if too much memory is in use. It's not really the touch screen but that the computer can't follow my commands, almost like an old 283 or 386 computer.

Take a look for these tool bar/memory manager programs before sending out to service in Mumbai.

Screen shutting down


Well, Gestion Alim is French for "Power Management." It means that your computer is shutting off power to the video using the ACPI power settings, probably stand-by or hibernation. Bring up the Power Management settings in your operating system (in Windows, it's the Display icon in the Control Panel) and change them to something more reasonable. If you want to disable them completely in Windows, change to "Presentation" and make sure that hard disks and display are both set to "Never" shut-off.
