Acer Aspire 7560 wont restart


Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.

You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.

I have winows vista and it takes a few minutes for my pc to shut down and startup how can i get it to shut down and start up faster


Forget it, it takes what it takes. There is an idea of an external drive, that can be rigged that helps, but It is a waste of resoruces.
Consider using sleep mode, for faster cycling and only shutdown when you actually need to. If this is a laptop, consider hibernate. Both sleep and hibernate focus on faster start ups, but on laptop, if you use sleep and run out of battery, you can loose data that you were working on. ALWAY save and backup.

I want to restart or reset my laptop. how?


Hi,

Few steps to restart you laptop, I would suggest not to restart often since it will degrade the hardware resource.
  • Determine what operating system it uses. Finding out what operating system your laptop uses will let you know what key combo (such as "Ctrl+Alt+Delete") can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot or shutdown.
  • Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up.
  • Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot.
  • Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately.
  • Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually.
Else Try:

Windows start > there's a small arrow(pointing RIGHT) in the left bottom > click it and u will get ALL the Power House Options there at your Click(sleep,hibernate,shut down,RESTART,....)

My computer is shutting down on its own. Is this


Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.

After moving PC it won't fully boot


Hi,

There is a possibility that something has shook loose during the trip to your new home.

You will have to take the side panel of the tower and check the CPU fan and heat sink to make sure it hasn't become loose or fallen off. Also check all the connections regarding the hard drive cables.

It is most likely the CPU fan and heat sink as when the processor reaches critical temperature it will shut down in a very short space of time.

Also give the unit a little time to settle down first.Leave it to settle for a couple of hours.

Regards.

I cannot shut down or restart my PC using the start menu prompts. The only way to shut her down is a hard shut down (manually turn her off).


There is a program that is failing to shut down in general, which is delaying the computers ability to shut down.
The next time you shut down, make sure you have no programs open. Then, while attempting to shut down, wait until Windows pops up window asking you to close a non-responsive program. When it does, take note of the program that it mentions, then close it and see if Windows shuts down. Note: sometimes this takes a really long time.
Try re-installing the non-responsive program and see if your computer can shut down normally again.

Unexpected shutdown


Could very well be a heat problem. You may have an accumulation of dust and dirt inside your laptop case. Laptops don't have much room for air circulation and even a small amount of dust and dirt buildup can cause random shutdowns to keep the motherboard from overheating. Using some compressed air in a can, blow out all of the dust and see if that helps. You may need to take it to a computer repair shop to have them open up the case and give it a good cleaning. They will be able to wipe all the fan blades clean and help with other dust areas. I don't recommend you trying to open the laptop case by yourself because it can be extremely tricky and something might get broken. Hope this helps.

Hi All,, I have a Fjitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2060,, It`s working fine then screen goes blank,,greenish colour, i switch off, then on again everything fine,, this is periodic,, I have also noticed,, on...


Sounds like it is getting too hot. NEVER USE YOUR LAPTOP WITHOUT BEING PROPPED UP. Use a fan to blow on it while it is propped up.

Laptops breath from the bottom. If you leave it flat, it will get too hot. Also check the inside for dust or dog hair. Be very careful taking a laptop apart. Some mnfr sites have step by step directions. Do not take it apart if you are not sure that you can. You might be lucky that it is not damaged because a Pentium will shut down when it gets too hot most of the time.

Rate me if this helps.
