Question about E-Machines eMonster 500a PC Desktop

1 Answer

This machine has WinXP pro on it. When shutting the machine down, it goes into "It is now safe to turn your machine off." when you hit the power button, it apparently goes into standby?, because the power light goes into a stutter mode, very fast blink. How can I get it to shut down.

Check the BIOS to see if ACPI is enabled.
Might try looking in event viewer/Application or System log files to see what may be hanging it up.
It may also even be a virus.

My del studio laptop doesn't shut down


You could have a corruption in the script or a process that won't stop. Try holding down on the power button until the screen goes dark and all lights go out. That is a hard shut down without saving settings. After it shuts down (finally) power it back up. Hit the F8 key on your keyboard the moment your machine goes to the black screen before it can load windows. That is the safe mode. Move the highlight up to safe mode or safe mode with networking and allow it to continue to boot up. Then, when it's completed the process and windows displays that it is in safe mode, do a normal restart. That should resolve the issue.

INSPIRON 640M WILL NOT GO INTO SAFE MODE , IT GIVES OPTIONS BUT NONE OF THEM WORK , THEN IT GOES TO THE BLANK SCREEN.


Try going to safe mode manually. The steps mentioned below will help you accessing the safe mode

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Safe Mode/Safe mode with networking".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

I have XP Pro OS and I didn't gracefully shut down when it said Windows shutting down. I pressed the power button to shut off manually because it was taking too long. Now when I turned pressed the power on...


If you're still able to access your start menu:
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time" and click next

Choose an available restore point, one of a time before the incident occurred. Then click next.

I'm not sure how long this will take but it will notify you of a successful restore.

Why does my desktop pro keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Just to clarify a G5 is not a Pro or "desktop Pro" (Mac Pro is an Intel based machine). Yours is a "Power Mac". Install a temp monitoring app to see the temperature (mainly the CPU temps). Mine runs around 50 to 60 Celsius and never more than 72. If the temps run to high she will shut down. G5 are great machines but it's not rare for them to go bad. Power supply issues and liquid coolant leaks are well know. Fans controllers have stopped working (the fans them selves are usually OK).

PC shuts down while running Windows


Attempt to boot the machine in Safe-Mode.

While powering up continuously hit F8.

You will get a Boot Option Menu, Select Safe-Mode boot

If you can get into safe-mode I would suggest to try doing an online scan, as it sounds like your issue could be related to malware:
