I'm not sure I understand the question? In Control Panel try User Accounts, OR, in Power Options. Perhaps this will help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291559

Create Desktop Shutdown/Lock/Restart/Hibernate Shortcut Icons In Vista


1. Right click an empty area of your Desktop
2. Select New>> Shortcut
3. In the text box titled: "Type the location of the item:" Enter the Command for the particular shortcut you would like to create. I've listed all of the commands below that activate their respective shortcut:
Hibernate rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll,SetSuspendState
Lock Rundll32.exe User32.dll,LockWorkStation
Restart Shutdown.exe -r -t 00
Shutdown Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
Sleep rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep
4. Once you've entered the command, click "Next"
5. Vista will now ask you what you would like to name your shortcut. I've always just given it the name of its function (EG: Shutdown or Shutdown System).
6. Once you have named you shortcut, click "Finish". Your new shortcut will now reside on your Desktop. Simply double click the icon to activate the command.


Note: If you do not like the look of the "default" icon that Vista has given it, you can change the icon to a different one. Here's how:

1. Right click the shortcut icon
2. Select Properties
3. The shortcut properties window will now be displayed. Click the "Change Icon" button.
4. The "Change Icon" window will now appear. Here, you can select from the many available system icons. Click the icon that you would like to use as your shortcut icon and then click OK.

Your Desktop shortcut icon will now revert to the selected system icon.

That's it! Have fun!

When i go on the internet my computer stops can you help me please Terry and violy Mcintosh


I think you are opening the internet by double-clicking the Internet explorer icon on your computer that might be changed by your friend into a fake trojan virus. Let's see how it is---
Right click on your desktop -->New-->Shortcut. Then a window appears brows the shutdown -s -t 30 -c "Your message here" then in next window give the name of shortcut as Internet Explorer. Change the icon on desktop that is created with IE icon. Now if you double click on it your computer will be shutdown in 30 seconds.
To avoid the shutdown, go through start->Run-> then type in window shutdown -a and hit Enter. It will work

My computor wont shut off like it should?


Wthout some more info it's hard to say, but if, when you turn it of, you see the phrases "Preparing to hibernate" or "going to sleep" or basically anything other than "Shutting down" then the correct option to shutdown needs to be selected. On windows XP, click the start logo, select "shutdown" then select "Turn off computer". if you are using Vista, in the start menu, click the arrow next to the power icon then click "Shutdown" with windows 7 just click "shutdown" in the start menu.
If you are trying to turn off your machine using the power button on the machine or on the keyboard, the machine will hybernate by default. To change this, go to "control panel" select power options and edit the current power plan. Look for the setting "change what the power buttons do" or something like that! change it to "turn the computer off"
Hope this helps.

How to reboot a dell dimension pc


The answer depends on your operating system.

Windows: Click on the Start menu. For Windows XP, click on "Shutdown" and select the Restart option. For Windows Vista/7, look for the power icon ( the partial circle and vertical line), click-hold on that and scroll to Restart on the pop-up menu to the right (it's hard to see on some Desktop backgrounds).

To force a restart if you can't get it to work from the Start menu, type -- to bring up the Task Manager. Select Shutdown from its options.

Linux: Look for the power icon (upper-right corner of screen) menu. Click and select your option there.

Last-ditch methods: Hold the power button in for about five seconds. This will usually do a hard shutdown. Any unsaved changes in open files will be lost, and the operating system will complain about being improperly shut down the last time it was used. Pulling the plug will do the same thing, but it is a bit more wear and tear on the computer than the power button method.

Shut Down Problem & Have to Reset Computer Battery


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...

XP Users:
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:
For Shutdown:
Shutdown -s -t 0

For Restart:
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.
Final Notes:
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.

H D Audio Driver fails to install


Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
