Lenovo u300s with windows 7 won't boot back up after going into sleep mode

Title pretty much says it all. After going into sleep mode the computer basically locks up. I have to hold the power button down, effectively shutting it down, and upon starting back up it informs me that windows was shut down properly. I have read on some forums that windows 7 has some sleep mode issues, it just started a few days ago and may have had something to do with the new windows update i installed around that time.

SOURCE: Compaq notebook won't boot up

Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: Dell XPS M1530 trouble shutting down

Try this, just to see if the shutdown actually works.

Open a command prompt and enter the following:

shutdown -s -t 05

-s is to shutdown, -t 05 is a 5 second countdown.  Let me know if it actually shuts down.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: acer aspire 5520 won't load up upon reboot

Looks like you've had a bad day with computers! Let's see if we can take some of this on today...

On the first laptop (these ideas may work for both, but I'll address them the way I would my own, and we'll go from there), it looks like there is too much stuff being loaded into memory during system startup. This is not uncommon, particularly in computers which have teenagers as primary users.

I would restart the computer, and after the manufacturer's splash screen and before the Windows splash screen, hit the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring you to a startup menu, which will be a black screen with white writing on it. You will be able to make your choice by moving up and down with the arrow keys on your keyboard. Choose SAFE MODE and hit enter.

If you do not see this screen, then you did not time the hitting of F8 corectly. You'll have to restart and try again.

Once in safe mode, click Start, then RUN. With Run open, type this command MSCONFIG and hit enter.

The next screen that opens is the configuration utility, which allows you to change the things that start with your computer. The last tab on the top should be STARTUP. click this.

Because we are shooting in the dark here, and we are not sure what is stopping the startup process, in the lower right corner of the window is a button that says Disable All. Choose this and click APPLY.

When the mouse comes back, click the next tab, which says SERVICES. Under the first window, you will see a small check box next to a line that says Hide All Microsoft Services. Place a checkmark here.

Again, in the lower right corner, click Disable All. Then click OK. When asked to restart, chose yes. This time the computer should start normally.

Now, this should start your pc, but you still have trouble with no AntiVirus software on your computer. The programs are there, they are just turned off. You'll have to open the program from the program files list, and enable it once again.

I'll comment on the other one after I eat dinner with my family.....

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity The computer will power-down and turn off unnecessary systems, including the monitor, while keeping the memory active so it can start back up quickly and still have all programs up that were being used prior to entering sleep mode. While this is a helpful feature that can extend the battery life of a laptop, it can result in errors where the computer won't power back up. You can usually solve the problem quickly.

Look for a sleep-specific key on the keyboard. It will usually be near the top row and have a symbol of a moon on it. Press this key as some laptops only respond to that command to come out of sleep mode. Press the "Enter" key to see if that will cause the computer to respond. Move the mouse back and forth several times and click the mouse button. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds if the previous methods have not worked. This is another common method for exiting sleep mode for many laptops. It may also trigger a full computer restart which would also solve the sleep mode problem. Unplug the laptop and remove its battery.
Reinsert the battery and then plug the laptop back in.

This should cause a full restart when the power button is pressed. Download the latest video drivers from the website for your video card manufacturer. Old drivers can sometimes cause problems with the laptop's power functions. See if your computer manufacturer has an updated BIOS on its website. The BIOS (basic input/output system) is the firmware that controls the initial boot processes for your laptop. Computer companies will release updated BIOS firmware if they get multiple complaints of boot or power problems. The BIOS interfering with Windows Power Manager is a frequent cause of sleep mode problems. Adjust your BIOS settings by rebooting the computer and pressing the appropriate function key when prompted on start up. It will normally be F1, F2 or F3, and you will often see a message during start up saying to press that key to enter the BIOS. Experiment with the BIOS settings by scrolling through the menu and locating Power Management. Increase the amount of time the BIOS allows before hibernating to make sure it is higher than the the Windows power setting. This can help eliminate conflicts between the BIOS and Windows concerning power shutdowns.

Won't go into sleep mode


Which operating system ?


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.


This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation.


Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money!


Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow.


The Shut Down menu appears.

Point at "Sleep" and click on this option.

Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode.


Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse.

There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on.


All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode.


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time.


Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security."

Click "Power Options."

A menu opens.


Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode.


If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity


Your Computer in sleep mode


First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby.


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management.


Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button.


Push the Power button.


Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby


Save all work before leaving your computer.


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.


Double-click Power Management.


Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks.


Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered.


Putting Your Computer in Hibernation


From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.


Double-click Power Settings.

Hope this helps.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Hi. I have a HP Compaq 6820S, Intel Pentium T7250, 2 Gb RAM, 160 Gb HDD, i have a problem, Laptop won't charge battery. I let the laptop in sleep mode, around 7 days, when i come back, battery was 0%,...


try a new battery yet? (brand new fresh)
sleep mode. so you want it to run for 7 days in sleep.
ive no idea how long this laptop runs in sleep
and hibernate is longer.
no idea at all.
you do know that the speed features are programmable
right?
including what chips do and do not go to sleep'
like USB ports, WIFI, and all wake on , features. like Ethernet chip.
and more.
why not just turn it off, and let the battery last longer..
this mode sleep kills batteries faster. way faster.
leave it plugged in all the time to the wall pack.
so the battery never drains unless you need to use it, on battery.

How do i enter supervisor password on my lenovo g550 laptop? it was my grandmothers & she has passed & we don't know what to do ?


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode

a)Start or re-start your computer.

b)Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.

c)Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

d)Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

e)Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen

Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.

Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7

Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:

1.Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.

2.In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.

3.Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.

4.Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)

Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

Why does my windows 7 max out all four quad core cpu's when coming out of sleep mode? Any suggestions. I like sleep mode because of the long boot time.


Does it max out the CPUs for only a few seconds? If so, that's a good thing, it means that it's working fast to boot up, this also happens on a normal boot. If it does it where the CPUs are running at 100% for more than a minute, then you have a problem. In which case, you need to close down more programs before you put it to sleep, or put it to sleep for a shorter amount of time
I hope this helps!
