SOURCE: close lid of laptop without shutting down system

You have to configure what laptop do when the lod is closed . go to Control Panel , Power Options , Advanced . In this tab you will see an option " When I close the lid " and a drop down menu just choose do nothing and press ok . It will not shut down your laptop when lid is closed .

SOURCE: Icons on computer are very large after closing a program; restart doesn't fix

Yes, it is normal because your game is running in a lower resolution. When the game is exited properly, then your normal resolution is restored but since it didn't exit properly, it forgot to change your resolution back.

Assuming this is windows xp, right click anywhere on the desktop that does not have an icon and select properties. There you can change the resolution to what it was; since I don't know what it was, you'll have to test a few to see which one looks the way it did before. Then once you find it, press okay and it will save.

SOURCE: computer freezes frequently and has to be shut

Probably a hardware problem, e.g., "flaky" motherboard, or "bad" RAM, or a "dying" hard-drive.

Consider temporarily swapping-in a different disk-drive, and install Windows onto it,
to see if changing the disk-drive cures the problem.

Or, search online for 'MEMTEST86+', download the 'ISO' file, and burn the ISO file to a create a bootable CD-R disk. Boot from the disk, to run the RAM-checker.

see this instruction and proceed according. God bless you

To partially clear computer RAM memory, close some programs that are currently running. In Windows, right-click on any program in the task bar and choose the "Close" option. That will free up the memory that was used by the program. Even if you close every program running on the task bar, a big chunk of memory is taken up by the operating system. The RAM used by the operating system cannot be cleared without shutting down the system.


  • 2 To clear computer RAM memory totally, you have to shut down the system. In Windows, click on the Start Menu and click the "Shut Down" option. Unix and Linux have similar options. When this process is complete, all RAM will be cleared.

    If you are somewhat impatient, turn off the computer by pressing the power button on the computer. This is slightly quicker than the previous step.

  • 4
    If you are very impatient, unplug the power cord of the computer. If it is a laptop, disconnect the battery as well. The computer's RAM memory will be cleared immediately upon the power source being disconnected. This method of shutting down the computer usually causes corruption or some other problem when the operating system is booted up again.

    Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


    If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

    Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

    My computer is on but no picture. It says windows was not shut down properly


    Hello Pattiaknight,Make a desktop shortcut to shutdown and include a switch that forces all open apps to shut down without warning.

    Just right click the desktop, New, Shortcut, type:

    Shutdown -f

    Shutdown -f closes any open programs without warning.

    Now instead of shutting down the usual way, just use that shortcut to shutdown. If the error stops it means some program wasnt shutting down properly on occasion.

    Please let me know if you any further questions or concerns.Also please rate it if you like the answer,it helps alot.
    Thanks.

    Can't turn off Hard Drive


    The error means that you are using a file on the external hard drive and that it can not close that file when it is use. You have to close the program that is using the file first.

    Example:
    Lets go on the assumption that you have your music collection on the external. If you still have your music player running when you try to disconnect, you will be greeting with the same error message.

    If the external contains any files that your Operating System uses, you will get this message anytime the computer is on. An example of this can be your "Page File".

    Shutting the computer down correctly is your safest bet until you find exactly what file is being used and what program is using it. During shut down, the computer closes any running programs. With no programs running, it will safely disconnect from the external HD because there will be no files in use.

    If you manually disconnect it while the file is in use, you could very easily corrupt the file and make it unusable. This is comparable to an Operating System getting corrupted from a computer not being shut down correctly (pulling the power from wall without doing a shut down).

    Hope this helps.

    try starting the computer in safe mode. As the computer boots keep pressing F8 until you hear a beep. The computer will or should start in safe mode, once it has everything will look big, don't worry about that for now, click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date for when you know the computer was working without any problems. Once the computer has restored it will shut down and reboot. When/if asked what mode you want to boot/start your computer choose start windows normally. I hope this helps.
