Why does my computer almost always come up with a black box say something to the effect of "Task Manager is closing background programs......" when I try to shut down?


There are many "processes" that run in order to provide services to the user and the application programs you install. I've seen system with as many as 85-100 processes running with no actual applications open. Occasionally, these processes take extra time to close down if there are other processes preventing them from doing so immediately at shutdown. To avoid corrupting the processes, the OS alerts you, the user to the extra time needed so you don't think there are any problems. You may have the option to force them closed, but unless you are willing to risk a corrupted file, doing so is not wise. Be patient and wait. This is a normal occurrence that will happen from time to time.

After i use partitionmagic to merge drive (D & E ) and rename to D the Drive D disappear and wheni check error it shown Error #1520 Externak attribute header mismatch How to solve this problem


This error occurs when the PC hard disk has error(s) and your using particular software as you have mentioned like partition magic. To solve this problem shut down all your applications and running software.
If you are using Windows XP
Go to Start>Run>In the run box type cmd
A black Window will open its called CLI or Command line interface. In this Window run the following command on the C partition CHKDSK /F if the message appears"Check the system next time the system restarts (Y/N) type "y". then type "d:"to enter D partition. When the D prompt (D:) appears type the same check disk /Fix command which is "CHKDSK /F" and hit enter.
Similarly repeat this command for all the partitions.
If the this option statement appears "would you like to force dismount on this volume? (Y/N). Select "Y".
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then when you perform the first step which is Start>Run>In the run box type cmd before hitting enter in the start menu look for a small black icon named cmd on the top of the start menu. Right click it and select "Run as Administrator" When the black cmd window opens all the steps after that are the same as described above.

Good Luck!

Slow motion, fuzzy scratchy noise, shutdown problems.


the same thing happened to me
this is not a device error but a OS error
to solve this problem
use system restore to restore the system to a date before this error started occurring
this a totally random error that happens due to a code fault
just restore the system to a date where this problem was not there and you will be fine

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
