First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
Reboot essentially means restarting the computer. This is two types
1. Warm Reboot: where you go to start on windows task bar and choose shut down but when prompted choose restart. This way computer shuts down momentarily and restarts!
2. Cold Reboot: By this means you choose to shut down and again when prompted choose shut down! This makes computer off completely until restart by pressing power button.
Booting is computer Lingo for above procedures!
A computer is a magnet for problems. If you use your computer to surf online, you can collect many viruses and such. This article will help you if you ever have a problem with your computer shutting down before it even starts up.
1.Is this your problem? This problem comes on suddenly. You will know this is your problem if you computer shuts down for no reason. 2.Confirm your problem. You can do this by trying to restart your computer. When your computer gets to your desktop screen it will shut down again before any programs have a time to start. This will not happen on a log in screen where you pick which user you are. You have to pick the user you had this problem on for a true confirmation. 3.Go ahead and restart your computer again. When it goes to the first screen there will be options for you to do before the screen disappears. 4.Locate which button you have to press for a system recovery. It will say something like "F11 - System Recovery." 5.Press the correct button on your keyboard corresponding with System Recovery before the screen disappears. If you missed your opportunity, let the computer restart and try again. 6.This should bring you to a system recovery wizard. Tell this wizard you want to recover to a previous date. Follow the instructions. When you get to a page where it asks you what point you want to restore to, pick a restore point two or more days before the day your problem began. 7.Finish the wizard and restart your computer. It should now load up the programs and a message should eventually appear saying something like "System Recovery Successful."
I am hoping your problem will be fixed. Best regards.
Try this, go to control panel, select Power Options, make sure the section that says "When I press the power button" it says shut down the computer.
You may also want to check in the BIOS where it says what do you want to do when you press the power button, you want both to say to shut off the PC.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck and have a pleasent day.
I had this problem the other day... I held down the power button until the computer shut down. Then, pressed the power button to start it up again. Windows started with out any problems so, once it got up and running, i did a "proper"restart and all is well.
Hi there. Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during
or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system
on creates a 8611 error. * Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.
Solution Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error. See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.
Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.
try CONTROL+ALT+DEL select Shut Down then Turn Off or Restart
*if your computer is malfunctioning or corrupt or frozen. Theres alway the manual shut down way HOLD POWER BUTTTON FOR AT LEAST 6 to 10 seconds or until computer shuts down. Then turn on computer and try again.
