Immediate power shutdown on Vio Desktop

As soon as I push the power button the power shuts down and will not reset until I unplug and wait 30 seconds then it repeats. The power shuts down like a breaker switch does in your house--except no sound.

I would suspect a power supply failure. It is one of the first things to go bad in a computer. From what I understand if the voltage is not correct to the motherboard (power good signal), the MOBO will send a signal back and shut down the power supply. It sounds like a safety feature to keep the MOBO from getting fried. Replace with a higher wattage power supply if you can afford it. But then it could be something entirely different too.

I cannot find the shutdown it disappear because of a certain download,now i dont knw how to shut may desktop....plz help i am so sleepy already


Try pushing the power button once, briefly. It should trigger the shutdown sequence. If not, try hitting Ctrl, Alt and Delete at the same time. That should bring up Task Manager. You'll find shut down in there. If that doesn't work either, all you can do is push and hold the power button until it shuts down, usually about 4-5 seconds, or pull the power plug.

Shutdown problems


I assume it is not shutting down. Do a complete reset, unplug computer from wall push power button in for 3-5 seconds, then plug it in and restart the machine. Then let it complete the boot up process then go to start and shut it down again see if it shuts down now. Thanks for the question hope this assists you. John

Error message : service error 5c10 on a canon


You can try and clear the error by holding down the power button and waiting for it to turn off then wait 30 seconds and turn it back on. {you might need to unplug it to get it to turn off}

or

Hold down the stop/reset and then push the power button while the printer is on. The printer should shut off then wait 30 seconds and then hold the stop/reset again and push the power button and the printer should turn on with the error cleared.

How do i reset the Netgear EN106tp to factory setting?


Hubs don't have any settings to reset. If it's a router, try the "30-30-30 reset." Get a pen, and hold down the reset button 30 seconds while the router is still plugged in. While still holding down the reset button, unplug the power, hold down another 30 seconds, then plug it back in, and hold down the reset another 30 seconds. The reset button is a small black button that you'll need a pen to push.

Acerpower SV PC will Not turn off


More information would help to resolve this issue.

Are you shutting down by selecting Start and shutdown or have you tried pushing the power button on push (not holding the power button)?

Try this:
Press and hold the power button in solidly for about 10 seconds. If it shuts down before you get to 10 just let off the power button. This should work, but may not solve the problem.

If you reboot it and still can not shut down from Windows, hold power button until it shuts down, unplug the power cord and disconnect everything from the computer other than the keyboard, mouse and monitor. With the power plug still unplugged, hold the power button in for about 15 seconds (this resets the power supply and can clear a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect power and after booting, see if you can shut down from Windows.

If still no go, click Start, Programs, Accessories, System tools and select System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back to a time before you had problems shutting down. That should do the trick.

Let me know if you get it fixed or if you need more advice.
