Question about HP Pavilion a310n PC Desktop

2 Answers

ShutDown My computer will not shut down. It will not re-start. It won't even turn off when I hit the power button. I ended up unplugging it from the wall. Any idea why it won't do any of these functions & how I can correct it? Thanks.

    It has been happening every time. I have probably unplugged it 3 or 4 times in the past few weeks. When I haven't unplugged it, it's because I just left it running.

Laptop will not shutdown


Remove the battery and unplug it from the wall. Try holding down the power button for about 8 seconds it should shut down. Just a suggestion! When you shut down your laptop make sure that your shutting down properly at the start button select shut down. If all else fails and this does not work.
You may want to have the power button checked out or the board. Or clean files out and start up programs add-ware or spy-ware may be preventing you from shutting down as well. This is also a common issue that causes very slow shutdowns on any computer system packed up junk having to close out. John

Try removing the laptop from the doc, pulling out the battery, hold the power button down for 10-20 seconds, and re-install the battery.

This should drain out the laptop and it should boot up properly without the dock.

My new Acer Aspire 5734z shutdown the day before yesterday. It sometimes will let me stay a few secs in safemode but then shuts down again. I dont understand why and im not really good at fixing computers...


Please try fixing it by running LKGC.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

Blue led power light blinks even after shutdown


What operating system are you using? When the power led continues to slowly blink, that means that the laptop is in standby mode and not fully shut down. In Vista, if you hit the power button on the laptop or the power button under the start button, it is configured to go to standby and not shut down. Make sure to hit the arrow all the way to the right and select shutdown from the list of dropdown options.

Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista


Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.
