Try and shut the pc down and see if anything is working hard or just not shutting down.  Take alook at the error logs and see if there are any error messages.

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.

I can't shutdown my laptop


Hold the power button down for about five or six seconds, it will shut down then. If it keeps doing this, you need to look at what is running in the background that is preventing you from shutting down via the menu.

Click START
click RUN
type in msconfig
take a look at what is scheduled to load at startup and then try to decide if you really need to have that application on all of the time. BE CAREFUL. If you don't recognize an entry, leave it alone until you can learn what it is.

Model c6180 printer gives improper shutdown error


The printer is not getting enough power. When you get this error message it means the printer is being turned off by unplugging the power cord. In this case it maybe that the printer is not getting enough power due to being in a surge protector or perhaps the power module is no longer holding power correctly.
First step is to disconnect printer from any power strip, surge protector, or extension cords and plug in so directly to the wall. If printer still will not stop looping cycle you may need to contact hp for a new power module.

"Improper Shutdown" - Printer keeps turning on and off.


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
8. Be patient to let printer run its tests.

Impropershutdown


Press 6 and # while disconnecting the power cord (wait a little bit) and connecting it again. When the display is turned on again you can release the buttons.

After this reset you need to enter language, location and any wireless settings etc.

Stuck shutting down


Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds and then release it. This will shutdown the laptop regardless of what state it is in. If it still doesn't shutdown then disconnect the laptop from the powersupply and remove the battery. Note that this will count as an improper shutdown. After it shuts don put the battery back in and you should be able to power it up.

Error code 0005FBB6


  1. Turn on the HP All-in-One.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the # and 3 buttons simultaneously.
  4. While still holding down the # and 3 buttons, connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  5. Continue holding the buttons until the Power button blinks.
  6. Follow the instructions that display on the unit to select the language settings.
Then when that's done, try printing, or copying items. If its still not working, check the ink and change those out and this should fix it.
