Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

The off / on button issue

I think I may have responded to your question such that you got no response. The computer works fine for shutdown/restart. With the beazel off the button seems to work okay. For several months a slight shim allowed the bezel button to function properly. I assume that this is more mechanical than anything - maybe a spring getting too loose. What do you think? Thanks.

Tip

Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop


Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown, then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown, restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than using the usual buttons in the start menu.
Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop

1. Go to your blank desktop
2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear
3. Choose New from the menu
4. Then choose Shortcut
5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s
6. Then press next
7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW
8. Press next
9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop

Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.


Shutdown.exe -s

Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.

shutdown.exe -r
Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.


shutdown.exe -l
This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.

shutdown.exe -s -t 1
Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.

shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot"
This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot"
The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.

Notes:

* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu..
* -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.

You may have a electronic problem.
could you open the computer and look at the CPU. Around the CPU are little canisters called capacitors. the tops of these capacitor are rounded,means you need to replace them.
they are about 8-10 of them, it is a $5.00 fix and it works well after that

I can't shut down my PC,It restarts again!


This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Start up and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308427 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308427/ ) HOW TO: View and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
    At last if nothing works then clear the "Star up"
  7. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Start up
    If you are not satisfied then If you are using XP then repair it.

thanks

When I presss the power button computer screen stays blank. cannot power processor off.


Something is wrong with the connection wire between your power button and the main board if you pressed the power button on the computer box for a few seconds and still the computer won't turn off. You can open the case and check the connection and replace the wire, or the power button or the main board if necessary. However, you can use the shutdown option of the operating system to turn off your computer too and the reset button might still work besides that issue if you only need to restart while system get frozen.

Shutdown when external device plugged in to usb port


First, make sure that the external hard drive is not causing this by simply trying it in another computer. Now let's assume you dod this and it works fine in another computer, do the following: Right-click on My Computer, click on Properties, click on the advanced tab, click the Settings button where it says Startup and Recovery, then uncheck the Automatically Restart under System failure. The next time you plug the hard drive it will not restart but it will let you see the error message if any.
