When I plug in my Iphone computer shuts down

It will keep shutting down and rebooting until i unplug the iphone. It worked at one time. After firmware upgrades to my iPhone 16gb, everytime I try to sync the device, the PC shuts down and reboots and does the same thing again. I am reading here that I must first delete photos from my iPhone (or email 125 photos!) and I suppose that may work but I wonder if there may be another solution. I do get a little pop up on the bottom tool bar that acknowledges a USB device present. The message annotates that a camera device has been connected. This is on my XP system. On my Vista, it sees the iPhone as well as a camera device. Sounds like XP problem to me. I do not really know. Thanks for this website and the possible help.

Make sure you've got the latest version of Itunes installed, if you have Itunes on your PC at all.

Try changing your drive letters: Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance. Make sure you are in Category View. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane. Right-click the drive, the partition and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Change. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the drive letter change.

Try the IPhone now.

My new iPhone 3GS shuts down my computer when I plug it in


Hi I had the same problem, for a few days the new Iphone worked fine then started to appear as digital picture divice then just shut my Laptop down as soon as i plugged it in. I contacted Apple who were very helpfull and sent me 4 mails with advice. The one that worked for me was ...........
If you have anything running on your pc/Laptop with Logitech driver it conflicts with the apple drivers. I had a built in webcam on Laptop and when I typed Logitech in the search on start menu found it was run by that driver. I uninstalled it and deleted all the relavent files plugged Iphone in and no more problems except I now dont have a webcam but I thought small price to pay.

I hope this Helps
Best wishes

Emachines w2828 keeps shutting down reboot/Screen Freeze


I dont thing this is a virus problem but a heat problem. if you dont mind getting inside the box see how clean it is and put your hand on the power box case .. then unplug all the hardware except the mother board then turn the unit on, if it goes on then plug 1 hardware at a time.

Computer well not boot


The computer may have done a routine software update that automatically reboots the PC when complete. HP is known for this. If it fires up when you turn it on, no worries. If its DOA then thats another issue. Best regards.

My laptop shuts down when i connect my new iPhone 3G


does your computer have a webcam? if it does, the computer is restarting itself because it identifies two conflicting cameras - one from your computer, the other from your iphone. what you can do is either 1)update your camera drive, 2)update your computer drive or 3)use a computer that does not have a webcam connected to it. hope this helped!

When I plug in my Iphone computer shuts down


Unfortunately firmware updates and driver updates for IPhones can be fickled on Windows OS, try rollback the firmware/driver update and see if you are still getting the error. If not you may want to research if the IPhone site has a FAQ or Troubleshooting solution for this.

Frozon screen


Always use CRTL/ALT/DELETE to shut it down when something like that happens.
It damages the HDD if you do not shut it down correctly.
Unplug the power cable from the computer and let it sit over night. Plug it back in.
is your computer XP or Vista?
please let me know.
Thanks!

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.
