Fan on Dell M5030 Starts on startup and then shuts down but computer continues to boot

Lots of fans are variable speed. Meaning they spin faster when the computer is hot and slow down when not. It's most likely spinning down. If the fan was bad the computer will either shutdown or generate an error during BIOS and halt the boot process.

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.

Launch start up repair

Im not sure if you are wanting to get to start-up repair or trying to get rid of it
If you want to access it, Boot system and do a hard nshut down. Restart, you will have the option to Launch start up repair or to start windows normally
If you are getting the option screen unwanted, this is primarily due to improper shutdown.
Whenever you shut down always try to use shutdown, restart options in taskbar.
If in the event you are stuck and need to do a hard shutdown try pressing Ctrl/Alt/del simultaneously
to access task manager.
Here you can end processes hung up or do a proper shutdown

I have a Acer 5517 64bit windows 7 laptop. Just recently I updated my memory cards from two gig to four gig. Now the laptop will not shut down properly. I replaced the old memory cards, and it's still...

Try UPDATING the BIOS firmware first by going on the Acer web site, go to support than download than enter the laptop model...

Download the corresponding BIOS firmware (if they have an .ISO file) than burn it to a CD using NERO so that the CD is BOOTABLE, than BOOT with the CD and fallow the instructions

Hope this helped!

No power on will shutdown


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.

Won't boot up. Get a message early on in the process that says the following file is corrupt or missing: Windows\system32\config\system Recovery disk won't boot either


This problem usually occurs due to an ungraceful shutdown, ie battery died before the laptop completed it's shutdown procedures or due to a failing hard drive.

Try booting the laptop and pressing F8 repeatedly. When the black and white screen pops up you can try booting into safemode/Command prompt. If you get in to the Comand prompt, type, CHKDSK /F then restart the computer by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del all three at once.

When it restarts it should go into disk checking mode, let it run and if it's only minor damage this should solve the problem, if that doesn't work, put your windows recovery disk into the DVD drive and boot the laptop, when it starts asking you questions try running the REPAIR install and this may solve the problem.

If neither of the above work you may need to recover the laptop to factory settings(same disks) but should backup any important files you have saved first. If you do not know how to do that already I would advise seeking a pro for at least that portion as it is easy to accidentally wipe out all of your files.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Error Occurs

I'm going to ask a stupid question. After you run the recovery and the machine reboots, are you getting a prompt to "press and key to boot from CD"?

If so, don't press a key and see if Windows (recovered) will boot.

If not, I'd say you probably need to re-run the recovery and choose a clean Windows install ...or at a minimum, a repair.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)
