When go to start then shut down computer does not shut down why


Something is running in the background that is interfering. Most of the time this is Windows Update taking its' sweet time downloading updates and installing, especially if you have it set to auto update. Could be something else though. Hit CTRL/ALT/DEL, open Task Manager and see what is running. Right click on anything open and tell it to stop process.

I was running the program "windon Defender" on it and walked away. When I returned the computer was off and wasn't turn back on.


The Windows Defender Application is the Antivirus Software which will be pre-installed with the Windows Operating System(Windows Vista, Windows 7).
The Computer will always Shut down after any Windows Updates or any Operating System Updates are downloaded and installed.
If you are connected to the Internet and running Windows Defender, the Computer will automatically download the Updates for the Windows Defender Application.
Once the Updates are downloaded and installed, the Computer will prompt for a shut down.
The count down will be for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, the Computer will install the downloaded Updates and shut down.
This might be the reason for the Computer to shut down while using the Windows Defender.

If the Computer still shuts down randomly, the issue might be due to overheating.
All the Processors in Notebooks are designed to shut down automatically, if there is any overheating issues.
The overheating issue mainly occurs due to the malfunction of the Cooling fan.
If the Computer shuts down frequently, the issue might be due to the above factors.
It would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

My computer is constantly installing Windows updates


They may not be installing properly, choosing to try again every time you turn your computer on.

Be proactive - turn automatic update off ... go to the update site, see what updates want to load, select one or two and do them manually. When you get caught up, turn the auto update back on.

Let me know what hapens.

It could be overheating, either you need to replace the fan, or at least open it up and remove any dust (bunnies) that may have built up inside, if your fan is gummed up it won't spin which then causes computer to overheat.

Update after re-installation


You can always try to do the updates one at a time instead of doing the bulk update option?


Go to Windows Update website and do the Manual Option instead of the automatic one.

Windows Update link


I would try and do all the "Critical ones" first and leave Service pack 3 alone till all those are done. Then if you get those done do SP3.

Alternatively you can turn OFF windows update and just not update it anymore. As long as you have a up to date Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam program you should be fine, but I know a lot of people like having all of the updates as well.

The fan on my Dell Inspiron 4000 is always running.


a couple suggestions:

try starting in safe mode and see if it does it still. It could be that you have some background program like Windows update or that new Windows active search function, which spends copious amounts of processor time cataloging your entire computer. Some anti-virus programs will do the same and eat up processor time. I'd try shutting down as many of these background processes to see what (or what combination) is causing the problem.

If this doesn't work, you might have a bad connection with your heatsink, which would cause your computer to stay at or your fan might be going bad, causing it to get really loud.

I'm not going to go into the possibility of it being used on a lap or bed or carpet where the fan intake vent is getting blocked. I know you've eliminated this as a possibility. Right?
