    Is your Dell 1525 a Vista trying to install Service Pack 1 or 2?
    If so, it will take you about 2 hours and a few reboots by itself.
    Tried Safe Mode to see is it doing the same?

No power on will shutdown


Hello

First of all press ALT+CTRL+DEL and start Task Manager, there is probably some application (or other process) that is not reponding. You can kill them to let the shutdown continue, and know what is causing the problem and maybe find an update for it.

Also this means that your computer has not been rebooted properly since the installation of important system updates. If you have "Automatic Updates" scheduled on your machine, these updates could have downloaded and installed without your knowledge. To fix this issue, let the updates finish installing, reboot and then shut down your computer as normal.

Click "Start."

Click "Windows Update." Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation of any updates that have been downloaded to your Compaq Presario. When the "Restart Now" button becomes available, click it once. Your Compaq Presario will shut down Windows, finish installing the updates and then reboot your computer.

Click "Shut Down." Because the updates have finished installing and have been installed properly, your Compaq Presario will now shut down normally and will not immediately boot back up.

Computer re-starts when i want it to shut down or sleep


You should check to see if there is a setting time where the computer installs updates, because the computer may be updating at a certain time and then restarts to finish the update. Check the setting to you might also have the computer restart every so often. hope that this helps.

Dell inspiron 1525 laptop shutdown problem


The Laptop is not responding to the Software request sent to the BIOS or one is not getting there.
Best Solution is to make sure all of your Microsoft Updates are performed. Not just the Critical ones... but all that apply. You may see several hardware driver updates.

This will help the Software and Hardware to communicate with each other...

This morning i got a update for windows.. well!! i updated it and then a error screen came on.. i tried to reboot the note book but its stuck in windows boot manager screen.. my lap top wont shut down.....


Boot into safe mode then go to system restore and restore it to before the update or go to control panel and uninstall the update.

To boot into safe mode:
Right after bios loads up and before windows starts loading start hitting the F8 key
Choose safe mode with or without networking doesn't matter

My Dell laptop is stuck on Windows Vista Home Basic


Press F8 to go to Safe mode, open SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to checkpoint where not yet updated the system.
And next time to open back your system normally finished all updates before you shut down.
Good luck!
