    I have the exact same fault, when I click shutdown the screen returns to normal. I have not got any spyware (to the best of my best knowledge) I also don't have a virus. I looked in the computer management folder of admin tools and a warning with event ID 1073 is telling me what a shutdown failed. I have followed the link to microsofts website and this just says shutdown failed, but you can shutdown by pressing ctrl+alt+del then press ctrl whilst clicking shutdown, this starts an emergency shutdown which worked ok, the microsoft website doesn't have any more information

    What PC do you have? What Operating system do you have? When you shut down normally what do you do? Sounds like a virus or spyware are you running your Antivirus program and do you have a spyware program on you PC if so are you running these on a regular basis?

You need to provide some more information, it could be spyware as jerry suggests or it could be a bios or motherboard issue. It might be that some software that wont close or allow you to shut down. Look in win defender to see what software you can run without and disable it from start-up and then that can be ruled out.

Any chance its XP?

Window motors sounds


It sounds like the power locks are making the noise to me. First the power going to the window gets shut off when you shut off the key. Second the window will not make noise unless the cable for the window regulator is broke, then the window will go down and stay down or up and wont go much of anywhere. Try to hold the power lock button and listen for the same noise. Most of the time the one of the switches go bad and keep trying to lock the car. Its usually the one that wont lock or unlock.

Hi my computer wont start up and making beeping sound


Hi,

First of all you didnt mention how it gets shut down. So i can say 2 possible ways in which system gets shut down.

First thing is that when you boot windows it will get shut down constantly

Second thing is that it wont load windows. TO be more specific CPU wont get On.

So what you need to do is that If the problem is with the first case you need to see the windows need to be formatted and you can proceed successfully

IF the problem is with the second case you need to get repair the SMPS or you need to see the CPU interior circuits.

I hope it helps.

Thanks.

I cant get my mouse pad to work after turning it off in control panel. Im on windows vista and on a lap top. Curser wont work so cant go back in to turn it on again.


Hold the Alt key and press F4. Press Enter to shut down the computer.

Once it's shut down, press the POWER button on the computer's system box to turn the computer on again and reset it back to normal.

Hope this works.

I need to re down load my drivers on my emachines


Is your "Turn off Computer" shut-down option is greyed out?
Go to power options in Control Panel and click on Advanced tab. Check setting under "Power buttons".

Also check Power schemes on first tab, drop down box making sure "ALWAYS ON" is not selected.

keep start button pressed 30 seconds, the pc should turn off. If not brutally unplug the power cable. Do a scan disk on restart.
