P8b75-mle will not shut down

Hit control alt delete and look and see how many running programs you, most of the time it is a background running program that locks up the shut down process. On average you should have only 60 to 70 programs running. Reduce these and your start ups and shut downs will be much quicker, there are third party software that can enable you to do this with ease, or you can search google .

Biostar motherboard resumes power after shutdown

There is an option called Wake On Lan. Check your BIOS and disable that option. The name may differ, instead of WAN it may say PCI. Take a look.

The second part is the NIC. Look for wake up options. I'm logged in Windows right now and it has that options setting. So does iOS. I imagine so does Ubuntu. I'll check next time I reboot into Ubuntu.

Asus will not turn off after shutdown

All these things point to the bios. You need to go to the Asus site for that motherboard and download an upgraded bios. There will be directions there on how to update your bios, probably both from Windows and from the system prompt.

There might be some software issue or virus attack in your system.. once that window opens, go to start->run and type "shutdown -a".
which will cancel the shutdown.. and then check for the software issue or virus attack.

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the site.

Can not save to bios

windows and the bios needs to know that the operating system can be shut down through windows, so when you go into the F2 or Del on boot up, go into advanced cmos setings and look for ACPI and make sure it is enabled. This sets the motherboard to support shutdown. Save and exit settings and reboot. Now go to control panel>performance and maintanance>power options and set the correct instruction for shutdown to shut the pc down. Remember evertime you remove the cmos battery or reset with jumpers you have to reset date and time and anything else you have changed to suit your set up
