Computer shuts down but does not turn off

Computer running 3Ghz P4 on ECS PF5 mobo
Problem: When selecting shutdown, the computer shuts down but does not turn off (meaning, all of the fans and lights act as if it is on and the monitor turns off). When I try to turn it off by holding down the power button on the front, it does abolutely nothing. The only way to turn it off is on the back via the PSU. When the PSU power switch is flipped back on, the computer starts to turn on(all of the lights flicker and all the fans and harddrives power up as usual), but there is no image on the screen. Again, to turn it off, holding the power button is not good enough, I again have to turn it off via the PSU. In order to have it start up relatively normally, I have to reset the CMOS on the mobo and then start it up again. Then, an image is displayed and it logs into windows as if all is normal, except upon shut down, i will not be able to normally restart it without going through the steps described above.
I noticed the computer's inability to shutdown normally after I enabled hibernate and put the computer into hibernate mode. I also took out the ram but replaced it.
What could possibly be causing this problem and how do i fix it?

    I had to recover the hard disk and now have the same problem.

    But I can press in the power button on front for about 15 seconds and it will shut down. I must be missing a file.

    I have the same issue, though with the GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R motherboard. Followed the advice to check-off the "autorecovery option" in Windows ( I use Vista 64 bit), but it had no effect.


    Any help?

Mchem, you actually have 2 separate issues going on there.

  • Open control panel > open the system control panel
  • in the system properties, click on the advanced tab
  • in the startup and recovery section, click the settings button
  • In the startup and recovery dialog box, under system failure, remove the check from the automatically restart option
  • click ok
  • click ok

  • Open control panel > open power options
  • in the power options properties, select the advanced tab,
  • in the power buttons section,
  • When I press the power button on my computer: click on the drop down menu and select the shut down option
  • click ok
Sebastien123, you only need to run the first part of this solution.

Hi! My pc shuts down (no warnings, no shutting down screen, it just goes off) within 10-15 min after I logged in. My mobo is ms 7592 ver 1.0. And the psu is for p4 s. Is this a compatibility issue? Or...


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough RAM random access memory to check what is running when your computer is running scroll to the bottom toolbar right click select task manager applications and processes if you see something you dont need running select end now to check how much ram you have click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all of your computers details another way to check how much RAM you have click start all programs accessories system tools system imformation all of your computers imformation will be there try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on a restart don't do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any imput may damage your computer then defragment your hard drive another way of running chkdsk click start control panel administrive tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start place a tick two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start should schedule this task when restart
do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
then defragment your hard drive

also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is totally free to use http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/ hope this helps

Installed Intel P4 630 CPU on ECS P4M800-M7 V3.1 mobo. Cannot do POST. The mobo runs fine with Intel Celeron 326 fine.


Hello Mafatbhai, What beeps are you getting at POST?
Here is a list of BIOS beep codes.
http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
Well the mobo should not have any problems with the new CPU. Please ensure though that you have removed the CMOS battery to reset it. I have included a link to ECS for your specific board. Download and install all of the available updates starting with the drivers and then the BIOS updates.

I need to find the wiring diagram for a gateway gt5468


Hello mari2jak,
If you could find the motherboard model that would be great. There were only a few mobo's used in the gt5468. The board # should be running parallel to the RAM slots. I found this on the Gateway site it actually shows the pinout starting on page 15 or 16.

ECS 945GCT-M3http://download.ecsusa.com/dlfileecs/manual/mb/eng/p4/945GCT-M3v3.0/23_945GCT-M3%20(3.0A)-low.pdf
if that link does not work for you try this one instead.
Be sure to select Manual then further down select USA and the document will start to load

PC Shuts Off with No Warning!


Hyperthreading is not active in a dual core system. It is a software phantom core that is used for single core processors that support hyperthreading, eg Pentium IV 3ghz and above.

I think your problem lies in the power settings that you have selected. This problem appears when incompatible hardware is present on the system and you have allowed the system to go into standby and/or hibernate mode. Pull up your power settings in the control panel and make sure that no standby or hibernate options are selected. See if that helps.

COMPUTER GOES SHUTDOWN WHEN PLAYING HIGH-END GAMES


If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all.
Yes upgrade your directx to 10
and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater.
The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and
when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the
Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.

Second opinion for ecs p4vmm2 8.1


It's ok to upgrade the processor to P4 the mother board is capable to run the pentium 4 2.0Ghz only . I said that because i'm using that type of motherboard ecs p4vmm2 with processor 2.0Ghz. But for my opinion the problem of your friend computer is not the processor is about the cooling fan heatsink because if the heatsink is not fit or properly lock the processor is over heating that's why the computer hanging and shutdown. If you can tight the two clip that was broken the problem is solved because i have also the same problem before one of my client computer. but if you friend want to upgrade to p4 it's better to buy also a new fan and heatsink for P4.

Thanks and God Bless

Normal 0 How much memory do you have installed in your computer? It may need to be, increased, as this is likely to be the cause of your computer freezing, rebooting, or shutting down.

Viao PCG-GRX650 won't shut down fully


DaveBaker,

Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.


Go to start>run>then type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely.

Next
Try doing this. Hold down "ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick.

And, finally

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831431
You cannot log off, restart, or shut down your Windows XP-based computer This article talks about an issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.


Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you.
Thanks much!
