Computer shuts down when listening to music


common reason why system shutdown automatically is if the motherboard is overheating where the system fan is not running. double check first the status of the computer if you are still able to hear any spinning sound or some air coming out from it. if those scenario is not applicable what are the other symptoms of the auto shutdown other than listening to music?

It's possible that you have some kind of malware issue. I would download and run Malwarebytes from here. Update the definitions and run a quick scan to see if it finds anything. It would be best to do this from Safe Mode to make sure nothing else is running. Also would be good to test if this happens in Safe Mode as well. I would recommend booting up into Safe Mode with Networking so you can still get on the internet.

To boot into Safe Mode, Restart your computer and keep tapping F8 usually right before the Windows XP screen appears. If you see the Windows XP screen then you have gone too far.

The other solution would be if you have a corrupted operating system. At this point I would just backup your data and reformat you PC to start out fresh.

PC SHUTS DOWN MONITOR AND FAN


Hi Brandy19960,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please do the following steps:


Step – 1

Right-click on My Computer, open Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” Uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”



Step - 2


To change the setting, click Start --> Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK.

Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.

In the right pane, find “Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile.”

NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant “roadrunner” reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables “Clear virtual memory pagefile,” and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.



Step - 3

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem (Tip from Terri Stratton). Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked.


Step - 4
----------

Try a Shutdown shortcut -


For a shortcut to RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

For a shortcut to SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Step 5
---------

WORK-AROUND: Disable power management for your USB hub: Open Device Manager (click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK). Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub. Click Power Management. Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.” OK your way out

Step – 6
-----------
Click on the Start button.
Select Run from the menu.
In the run dialog box type “msconfig”.
Click OK.

Once in the msconfig utility select the startup tab. In the startup tab you will see several programs listed with a checkbox beside it. If there is a check mark beside the application listed, the application will startup when your computer starts up.

Regards
ELLIN

Plz help me with my problem in my computer


Hi, Hardware wise this could be a memory issue. However, more often than not, it would be similar to a video problem that it either freezes or BSOD. Try reseating your mem sticks; OS wise, it may be corrupt drivers or XP startup files. Try to run in Safe Mode and check it if will load fully. If yes, you can start finding out anything out of the ordinary. If no also, then you may have to repair Windows; Virus wise, it may be that you have a virus or malicious software running at startup instructing your PC to shutdown. Try running in Safe Mode. If it will load, go to Start, Run, type "msconfig", Startup. Check all the programs that run at start up and uncheck those that you do not recognize. Reboot. If it will not run even in Safe Mode, you may need to reinstall/repair your Windows XP. Good luck and hope this be of some help to you.

My windows xp keep rebooting after shutdown


You should be able to change this setting in the PC bios menu. Windows XP should interact with this and change it automatically, but it occasionally doesn't. If you have trouble finding the appropriate menu and changing it, please post back with details of your PC (ideally motherboard make and model) and we can hopefully talk you through it. When the computer starts up, there should be a screen before the windows XP screen which says something like "press f8 to enter BIOS setup", but all machines are a little different. If you can get into the BIOS setup, only change things which you are sure you know what they will do, or you can cause all sorts of problems. Hope this helps, post back with system details if you need more :)
