Re: My XPS 1530 will not shutdown, it only restarts
Try running chkdsk /r and then restart the computer. to do that, click on START, RUN, in the open field, type 'cmd' and press <enter>. A dos window will open. At the blinking cursor, type 'chkdsk /r' and press <enter>. You will get a message that the drive can't be locked and do you want to run it the next time Windows starts. Type 'y' and press <enter>. Now shutdown the computerand restart it. Chkdsk will run and it may take some time. Depending on your installation, you will see a blue screen that will show the progress. Sometimes the screen will stay black and the hard drive light will flash. That's ok. Let it run until Windows loads. Wait until it is completely loaded and then try shutting it down normally.

Hi there. While you are in safe mode perform a system restore and take the computer back at least 2 - 7 days before the problems started. Don't worry about loosing any data as system restore does not delete files. Please post back if you need anymore help.
Ok Gonna try and teach you some basic programming :-). What the following will do, is create you a Desktop Shutdown Icon, which when you double click on it, will hopefully shut down your PC rather then restart it. So here's how to do it :-).
1. Right click on your desktop and select new > shortcut. 2. In dialog box type “shutdown –s” 3. Click next to continue and then type a name for shortcut (IE Shut Down PC) and click finish.
Now you should see the shortcut on your desktop and will hopefully solve your problem.
