It fails to boot-? does it just sit there, or does it reboot continuously? Do you have the os cd for it- you might need it to do a recovery mode and run chkdsk /r that might fix the file error

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 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.

How to shut down dell inspiron 530 computer - the button only takes computer to sleep mode

I assume you use Windows Vista.....
In vista the default action of the power button is configured to sleep mode..
So to shutdown the PC you can press "Start - right arrow - right arrow - right arrow - Enter", or you can navigate to the same using the mouse & selecting shutdown from the list besides the lock icon.
You can also change the power button configuration this way goto " Start-Control Panel-System and Maintenance-Power options-change plan settings (under the current plan you are using) - change advanced power settings - Power buttons and lid - Start menu power button" click on settings and select shutdown, apply & save the settings and close this window.
Now you can just click the power button to shutdown your computer.

My XPS 1530 will not shutdown, it only restarts

Try running chkdsk /r and then restart the computer. to do that, click on START, RUN, in the open field, type 'cmd' and press <enter>. A dos window will open. At the blinking cursor, type 'chkdsk /r' and press <enter>. You will get a message that the drive can't be locked and do you want to run it the next time Windows starts. Type 'y' and press <enter>. Now shutdown the computerand restart it. Chkdsk will run and it may take some time. Depending on your installation, you will see a blue screen that will show the progress. Sometimes the screen will stay black and the hard drive light will flash. That's ok. Let it run until Windows loads. Wait until it is completely loaded and then try shutting it down normally.

Good luck and let me know how it works out.

How reboot my satallite pro laptop

To reboot a windows computer with Windows XP, click the Start button in the lower left corner, then click Shutdown, then Shutdown again in the popup box.

For a Windows Vista machine, click the windows Orb in the lower left corner, then the small arrow next to the lock on the bottom right of the start menu then click shutdown.

If you need to manually power off, hold the power button down for 5-10 seconds until the computer itself shuts off. This is only for when traditional methods do not work.
