You have the 'snowy screen' option enabled. If you press the Fn key down, and tap on the S and C key, Santa Claus will dance across the screen............
WHAT? !O_O!
You gonna' believe that? lol!
You need to diagnose. However the problem is a loose connection of Video Cable.
Loose at motherboard side, or LCD screen side. Could be Video Cable is damaged also. (Stretched/Broken wires)
What is the model number? It's on the bottom of the laptop. I should be able to get you the link to the HMM. (Free) (Hardware Maintenance Manual)
Then if you wish I can step by step guide you, through the diagnostic procedures, and disassembly required to access both connections, of Video Cable.
Also can guide diagnosing through a diagnostic flowchart

SOURCE: Viao PCG-GRX650 won't shut down fully

DaveBaker,

Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.


Go to start>run>then type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely.

Next
Try doing this. Hold down "ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick.

And, finally

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831431
You cannot log off, restart, or shut down your Windows XP-based computer This article talks about an issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.


Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you.
Thanks much!
Ron-

SOURCE: my compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart

My Presario v5000 is doing the same as above. Except, I let it cool for a little while and it turned on. Now it only turns off after a while. I'm not to sure exactly why that is but i could possibly be an over heating automatic shutdown procedure.

SOURCE: laptop boots up intermittently or screen freezes

basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.

when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?

a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.

try also using an external monitor

Lenovo r61i has just started to shut down if I try to run it with the power supply attached. When I run the computer on the battery only it does now shut down until the barrry runs out of juice. Why?


If you are running Windows 7 or 8 there is a power setting that you can change to tell it when to shut down the screen or go to sleep. Click on the power icon in the lower right task bar. You will see something like power settings. Also you will see when to shut down the screen, for both battery an electric. You can make changes there an fix problem. I just did this a week ago an fixed the same problem.

Try to perform full restart, press power button down until computer shuts down (+5 seconds). Then try to restart it. If repair function is offered, do not select that, select "start up windows normally".

When laptop charging in off position and if i connect usb pen drive, ext. HDD, etc. these are on and flashing


Is the laptop off or Hibernating? Sleeping? Open the Control Panel, Power Options, Set to High Performance, open Advanced Power settings, set Hibernate and Sleep to Never. Shut down the laptop at the Start Menu. If the AC cord is plugged in the battery will charge. Nothing else should work.

Easynote tj74 wont turn on


Your not getting power? When you plug the laptop in does the Battery charge light come on? Are you getting power to the laptop? Do you have a multimeter to verify voltage from th AC outlet to the AC jack? Or ,the power gets to the laptop and push the on/off button you get no response? Or, you push the on/off button and the laptop starts then shut down? No lights, no leds blink. Remove battery, Try another cord/charger. Has it been dropped or damaged that would jar loose a connection, or pulled by the cord resulting in a damaged AC jack?

Satellite screen is blank & won't shut down


Don't know why the screen is blank. Toggle the F9 key to make sure you didn't accidentally toogle off the screen.

As far as turning off the power and shutting down the computer, the old stand-by is to take out the battery and then pull the plug. The computer will power down. Replace the battery, replace the plug and then push the start button. You may have to start it up in SAFE mode since the shut down process was not the "normal' process the computer expects to follow.
