My XPS 1530 will not shutdown, it only restarts

When I go to the start menu, and click shutdown or sleep, the computer will not shut down. It just restarts. The only way for me to shut it down is to hold the power button on the keyboard.My XPS Dell computer - My problem is when the powder is on, the computer keeps coming on for a second or so and then goes off and then comes on again. It just does this over and over again. The computer was on sleep mood and than when I came up to use it, it froze and then shut off, and now it keeps coming on and off for a second or so. Please HELP!

    It is not a laptop it is a XPS Desktop on in one monitor - TV etc. Computer keeps acting like it is coming on but shuts off - repeats this over and over again. the computer is not even a year old yet.

    Hello their again,



    sometimes we are accidentally saving some corrupted file and is is the one reason why our dsektop or computer not functioning properly.

    But even it is a desktop you can reformat.

    this is the best way of solution to your problem.

    but if the computer is still on warranty get your desktop to the shop where you buy the unit i prefer to suggest you that don't touch anything let the seller or technician specialist do this for you.



    thank you hope this will help.

Hi,
This is a case of a corrupted registry, there is no way that this can be resolved by just doing any repair since windows will not start anymore because the registry key for the logon has been either deleted or corrupted, reinstall windows.

    hi again!



    pls try this option:



    When you click on the Shut Down option, your computer restarts instead of shutting down.

    1. Click Start > Run and type REGEDIT

    2. Click the plus sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    then System
    then CurrenControlSet
    then Control
    then click CrashControl

    3. Double-click on AutoReboot on the right side and change the value from 1 to 0.

    Close regedit and restart the computer. Now the computer should shut down normally instead of restarting.




    regards! and let me know...

  • Dennis Jambalos
    Dennis Jambalos Feb 23, 2009

    or do the following options again if still the same....



    One: Hi Win XP has an mechanism to restart itself in case some internal or hardware problems occur.You can disable it by first opening the control panel ->System->Advanced->Startup and recovery settings->Disable all the three options in system failure section . This will do.




    Second: Check Device Manager and let me know if Computer is registered as ACPI or STANDARD.
    If it is ACPI, a few setting changes and you will fixed up in a jiffy.
    IF it's STANDARD, you need to perform a REPAIR on your system and explicitly state it is an ACPI installation before proceeding with the repair.
    Of course, all of this applies if you have an ATX power supply which you probably do.



    or visit this: http://support.microsoft.com/default.asp...

    2. Click the Advanced tab.
    3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
    4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
    5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.



    Thanks!!!

Hi check out the following steps...
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 computer and 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....

it works out for u..
thank u!!

    if there was no files to be recover on the unit. you must do a clean install of Xp on the unit. reformat the drive and re install a fresh copy of win xp.

XPS 1530 won't start up property


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.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Dell XPS M1530 trouble shutting down


Try this, just to see if the shutdown actually works.

Open a command prompt and enter the following:

shutdown -s -t 05

-s is to shutdown, -t 05 is a 5 second countdown.  Let me know if it actually shuts down.

My computer does not shut down


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.
