Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Why wont my laptop log off even if I shut it down manualy


You will need to remove all power. This includes the battery. Then when you start up your system will report it shut down incorrectly. Select to start normally and as soon as the system has settled down properly shut it down again.
This fault is caused by a memory error when unloading on of the systems drivers. The above process will reset the driver(s) so that they load correctly next time you switch on...BUT YOU MUST REMOVE ALL POWER FIRST for it to shut down as it is stuck in that unloading loop.

Comcast.net e-mail sign-in on Sony Vaio laptop is not working. will keep on bouncing back to 'log inpage'. my password and account work on any other computer. thanks


Go into system, find the wi-fi adapter and open it up. Choose uninstall and click on it. If windows asks you if you want to remove the software from the hard drive say no. Wait for uninstall to complete than shut down the computer, shut down, not reboot. Wait a couple of minutes than turn it back on, sign in and let windows find and reinstall the driver. It now should work. 9 times out of 10 this corrects this issue.

Asus u52 shut down unexpectedly


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

It wont charge im holding it right nw hoping it wont shut down help fast


If your laptop won't hold a charge and you need to hod the connection in order for it to stay on, you may have a power jack issue. The power jack on the laptop may have been moved around from moving the laptop while connected or wiggling around the connection, and needs to be re-soldered back on the motherboard.

Also, just before taking that step, try using a different or brand new charger. Sometimes the pin inside a charger might be bent or broken, therefore not making a proper connection with the power jack.

Hope this helps.
