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!

My inspiron one 2305 won't power on. The light on the adapter cuts off soon as i plug it in. It work fine the last time i shut it down.


Welcome to Fixya
This sound like a hardware problem not much to do to try and fix this issue but you can try this.
Remove the ac adapter and battery. Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. By doing this we are draining the flea power of the laptop. Residue power sometimes causes a no power issue. If this does not fix the problem then you would have to get the laptop serviced.


Hope this helps

How to shut down a computer?


1. Close any applications you have running, such as your email or instant messaging service, by clicking the "X" in the upper-right corner of each program page.

2. Left-click your mouse on the Start button, typically found in the bottom-left corner of your computer screen.

3. Highlight the option to "Shut Down" and left-click your mouse again to initiate the proper shutdown process.

4. Wait until your computer logs you off of any applications, your computer screen goes blank and the power light turns off before you turn off your monitor or close your laptop.

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.

sounds like that when you did a restore one of the files did not load correctly try using your repair disk and that should fix it

My toshiba laptop l10 281 has stopped working it was working perfectly and was shut down properly wen i went to turn it on again today it wont go it wont even light up please help!! thanks in advance john


If nothing at all works then perhaps you have no power to the system.

Check that the powerpack is getting power (does it hum or get warm when plugged into the mains socket?) Check all connections to the power pack and back of laptop.

Try taking the battery out and powering up on only the power pack

Do you know anyone with a similar laptop that you could swap power pack with?
