Question about Dell Dimension™ B110 PC Desktop
I have 2 dell inspiron 5100's and they have the same problems. (1) they won't always shut down--They computer beeps, and I have to hold the power button down for several seconds to shut down. (2) Occasionally (too often) they try to shut down, there is a single beep, and then I get the blue Dell screen and it freezes there. I was told by a Dell tech to reset the battery. That works, but I would like a real solution.
Hi, I had the same problem, for a workaround this is what I did. I made a new shutdown shortcut. Now when I click on it the pc shutsdown fine. I actually put mine on the taskbar. Here's how I did it...
1. Right click the Desktop and select New /Shortcut.
2. A screen will appear asking you for a Command Line. Here's what you put in that box:
Shutdown -s -t 0
Shutdown -r -t 0
For Log Off:
Shutdown -l -t 0
After you've decided which of the above options to use, click the Next button and give the shortcut an appropriate name.
1. Now that you have the nifty little shutdown shortcut on your desktop, you may want to drag it to your taskbar for easier access (and less chance of accidental clickage).
2. I didn't like the nasty looking icon that XP gave my shortcut (it was too Win3.1 for my taste), so I changed it.
If this helps you plz rate this 'fixya'. If not leave a comment & I'll be happy to try to help you further. Thank you kindly.
