How to restart or shutdown a computer through a remote desktop connection


When you are connected to another computer by remote desktop, did you ever notice that the shutdown and restart options are not there. The computer that you remote desktop to must already be on. But if you regularly use remote desktop, at some stage you will want to restart the remote computer from where you are. For example you might install a program and you need to restart the computer to finish the installation. If this doesn't happen automatically then you can follow the steps below.

How to Reboot or Shutdown a Machine from Remote Desktop Connection using Windows XP?
  1. Open the run box by pressing the WINKEY and the letter R on the keyboard.
  2. Type the following command into the run box: shutdown -r -f
  3. Press Ok.
  4. This will restart the remote computer.
If you would like to shutdown the Windows Xp remote computer you can type: shutdown -f
When you are typing these commands in you must type it exactly right. If you miss a space or a dash it will not work.

Restart a remote computer using Windows Vista or Windows Seven.
On these newer operating systems the run box is almost obsolete. You only have to open the start menu and type these commands into the search bar at the bottom. This area acts as a run box and you can type commands into this.

The download page automatically opens to Vista 32-bit.

Left-click on the blue Down Arrow, to the right of the box.
In the drop down list, left-click on Windows XP.
(Works for both Home Edition, and Pro Edition)

Click on the blue Down Arrow to the left of - Audio (3)
Go down to the third file listed in blue - SIGMATEL - Driver
Go across, and left-click on - Download File

In the pop-up window make sure there is a green dot in the small circle, to the left of - For Single File Download via Browser.
If not left-click in the small circle.

Now go to the bottom of the pop-up window, and click on -
Download Now in the blue oval.
A small window will come up on the right -
Opening R114282.EXE

Left-click on Save File
Another small window will come up on the left.
In the heading at the top of the window, tells you where the file will download to.

Using Windows XP as an example;
(Doesn't matter if it's Home Edition or Pro Edition),

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

Desktop: The driver file will be on your desktop screen.
My Documents: Left-click on Start, then My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then My Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.
(Yes the file is OK, if a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' comes up. Click on RUN )

The Installation Wizard will appear. At the bottom of the next three small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so. Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart. (Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

When Windows goes to load you should hear the Windows 'jingle'.

Still No?
Let the computer run for about 10 minutes or so. Surf the internet, whatever.
Now turn the computer off.
WAIT 2 minutes, turn the computer back on.

Sometimes it takes a Hard Start. { Cold Boot }
(Restart is a Soft Start. Warm Boot)

Still no? The audio chipset on the motherboard, (Integrated Audio) is bad. Suggest an economical sound card, for one of the white PCI slots.
Need guidance with this post in a Comment.

I have a hp a288n desktop. It quit responding as it has done previously and it wouldn't turn off, so I turned it off by the power button. When I went to turn it back on it would not start. I have unplugged...


I've attached the steps needed to be taken if your computer does not turn off.
If you pc is turned off and you can't turn it on now, please provide me more informations like;
  • what is the color of your screen
  • what written on your screen
  • Can you see cursor blinking or arrow
  • Any error message displayed?
  • The HP or Compaq Logo Screens are Missing on Startup
  • When the pc stops responding, before or after Windows start up?
Steps below is to show you how to resolve the issue of the pc not shutting down.

Step 1: Using one anti-virus program
You only need one anti-virus program. If more than one anti-virus program is open at the same time, uninstall the extra software programs. Several virus scanning software on the same PC can create software conflicts. This is also true for multiple versions of the same anti-virus software. For example, if Norton Antivirus version five and Norton Antivirus version 2002 are both installed on the same PC, uninstall the older version (version 5 in this case). Use the following steps to remove programs:
  • In Windows XP, click Start , then Control Panel.
  • In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , then Control Panel
  • Double-click Add/Remove Programs
  • Select the anti-virus software that you want to remove and click the Add/Remove button, or the Change/Remove button in Windows XP.
  • Restart the PC when the uninstaller has finished.
  • When the Windows desktop appears, restart the PC again. The PC should shut down and restart normally this time. If not, continue to the next step.
Step 2: Disabling Software that opens with Windows
For troubleshooting purposes, reduce the amount of software that opens with Windows to try and find out if a software conflict is occurring.

  • Open the Microsoft System Configuration software (Msconfig), remove the selection next to Load Startup Items , click OK , and restart the PC.
  • For more information, refer to Preventing Programs from Opening When Windows Starts .
    Restart the PC using Windows.
  • If the Windows still fails to close, continue to next step.

Step 3: Turning off all power options
Turn off all Windows power management options and shut down the PC as follows.

  • In Windows XP, click Start , Control Panel , and then Performance and Maintenance.
  • In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , and then Control Panel .
  • Double-click the Power Options icon.
  • The Power Options Properties window appears.
  • Click the Power Schemes tab and change all selections under Settings for Always On power scheme to Never .
  • Click the Hibernate tab and remove the check mark from Enable hibernate support .
  • Click the OK button to accept the changes, and then restart the PC.
  • When the Windows desktop appears, restart the PC again. The PC should shut down and restart normally this time. Regardless, continue to the next Step to see if a BIOS update is available.
Step 4: Upgrading the BIOS
The BIOS is code that the PC uses at start up and is responsible for many things. One of those things is power management, which can get in the way of the shutdown process.

Computer will not start past safe mode screen


In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions
