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.

Normal restart: select restart from the apple menu, or press the power key (the sleep/restart/shutdown dialog appears), then click the restart button or press the "r" key. Forced restart (use only if the computer crashes or freezes): Press simultaneously the Apple, Control and power keys. Forced shutdown (use only if the computer won't respond to anything, not even a forced restart): Press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off.
Press Start(ORB at bottom left for vista/w7) and if you're on windows 7/vista, there should be a list button on the bottom right side of the start menu saying "Shutdown"(windows 7) and "Sleep"(Vista), click the list and click Reboot.
On XP you need to click the Shutdown button and before you click shutdown instead click Reboot(Green button If i recall correctly).
to restart the pc you can either click the restart button(the small button next to the power button) or choose restart option in the shutdown menu.to access the shut down menu click alt+F4 from the desktop or choose turn off computer from the start menu
I assume you use Windows Vista..... In vista the default action of the power button is configured to sleep mode.. So to shutdown the PC you can press "Start - right arrow - right arrow - right arrow - Enter", or you can navigate to the same using the mouse & selecting shutdown from the list besides the lock icon. You can also change the power button configuration this way goto " Start-Control Panel-System and Maintenance-Power options-change plan settings (under the current plan you are using) - change advanced power settings - Power buttons and lid - Start menu power button" click on settings and select shutdown, apply & save the settings and close this window. Now you can just click the power button to shutdown your computer.
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.
