This sounds like it could be related to Malware. I would suggest three things. A malware scan, a maintenance cleaning, and checking your startup applications.

To run a malware scan goto: www.trendmicro.com/housecall

And follow the instructions on the page, let this run, until the results dialogue window pops up, this make take a while. 1-3+ hours. Just let it run, you do not need to attend it once it tells you it is scanning.

For maintance cleaning, visit this site to download an application called CCleaner
http://www.filehippo.com/download/file/df09062a5bdcfd3a0a0cf31f7117c0cb566fe5b698d89848911da4e434cb72f5/

After these steps.
To adjust what programs you have starting up in the beginning:

Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > Click the Startup Tab then un-check any program entries that you don't need starting up in the beginning. This does not remove them from your computer, just from starting up in the begining and taking resources in the background. When you need the program, you can simply click on its link in your start menu. It is your choice what you keep and what to remove.

If you show a Blue Screen, you have more problems then it not being able to turn off/shut down?? I would back out the battery so as to stop power from getting to it, AFTER you have it unplugged..then push battery back into to engage, plug the AC cord back into the PC. turn it back on and IF you still show a BLUE screen, you will need a tech to check it further...GOOD LUCK...

Check if your hard rive indicator light is flashing (has disc shape icon or can shape icon next to it). If it is then put in your windows disc and do a startup repair. Make sure it is booting from the disc drive first. if it isnt flashing then you may have a dead hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it back in.

This is caused by a loose LCD cable. You may bring your notebook to an authorized service center to have the LCD cable be reseated.
