Netvista POST/boot problem

If I shut it down and turn it back on, it's o.k. If I shut it down and it sits overnight, it won't finishing POST next morning. Fan stays on high speed, CD drive light comes on, but won't check floppy drive. Pulled cover off and checked connections. Will POST and boot o.k. after I push this little gray square button inside near the power supply???

ACER ASPIRE X1200 Unexpected Shutdown


When does it shut down? Are you able to use it at all? Or does it shut down when you are trying to boot it up?

When it shuts down are you able to boot it right back up and start using it? If not, it might be running hot. If you let it sit a while to cool off then try booting and if you are successful, then it is definitely running hot.

Three things that will make a computer run hot.
1. Dust - Dust inside the computer, dust clogging the vents and fans. Dust around the cpu and heat sink. To fix, Remove the power cord, remove the case and take a can of compress air to blow out the dust.

2. A fan is not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power supply and the fan that sits on top of the cpu is working. Normally the system will notify you if the fan is not working. To fix, you will have to replace a fan that is not working.

3. The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. To fix, apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink.

Maybe you have a virus or infection that is shutting you down if it is not running hot and you are allowed to work on the computer for a while before it shuts down. Boot the System in Safe Mode and see if it shuts down.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

It's an IBM NetVista M42 8305 81U

IBM = Manufacturer's name
NetVista = Series
M42 = Sub-series
8305 = Machine Type
81U = Model

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?

You want the second audio file listed -

ADI SoundMAX audio driver for Windows NT 4.0 - D66Z21US - NetVista 6826, 8181, 8182, 8301, 8303, 8304, 8305, 8306, 8307, 8308, 8309, 8310, 8311, 8312, 8313, 8314, 8315, 8316, 8317, 8318, 8319

Click on the blue - Learn More - to the right of this file name.

Left-click right on the first file listed (In blue) -

ADI SoundMAX audio for Windows NT 4.0

(Not - Add to your Download List - )

A small window will come up -

Opening d66z21us.exe

d66z21us.exe is the - file name. This is what you look for when it is downloaded.

Click on - Save File

Another small window will come up. In the top header of this small window, tells you where the file will download to.

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

Desktop: The file - d66z21us.exe - 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 right on it. The Installation Wizard will come up.
Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.

{ Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish at the bottom. Windows knows where to put the audio driver file. Do not change anything }

After you are finished restart your computer if not asked to do so.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

joecoolvette

[ To add:
Restarting the computer is termed a 'Soft Boot'
Turning the computer completely off, waiting 1 minute, and turning it back on, is a 'Hard Boot'.
It may take a Hard Boot for Windows to recognize the audio device, and driver ]

It won't shut down and reset and there is no messages on the view screen on the printer


Welcome to Fixya

Try to reset the power of the machine first by unplugging the power cord of the printer from the wall. Let the printer sits for 5 mins then plug it back in then turn it on. Wait until the printer finished initializinf then try to turn off the printer and see if it will respond.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Conputer is shutting down but it does not shut down


Hold the power button until the computer shuts down.
Restart and press F8 key repeatedly until you get a start up menu.
Select safe mode from the menu.
After the computer boots up, and you are at the desktop, go to my computer and select properties of the C drive (your system drive). Select tools from the tabs, then defrag. When defrag finishes, select check drive for errors and select the box, to automatically fix errors, and then ok, and yes at next window, allowing the computer to schedule the error check at next boot.
Reboot and allow computer to scan the drive.
After it finishes, you will continue into windows. Allow windows to boot. After it finishes, attempt to shut down again.
If it works, you fixed it. If not, you have a driver or program that will not quit, and you will have to research further to find out what is running and why it won't quit.

Won't shut down, won't finish boot - no functionability


I have had a similar problem since I bought this printer. When I make a copy or scan a document, the printer refuses to print anything else directly from the computer. If I turn offf the printer, I get the "printer is shuttting down" message in the display, however it never shuts down ( I've even left it overnight!) I have to pull the power plug out and wait ~30 seconds and then plug it back in to restore functionality in the print mode. I get some kind of nag screen at start up telling me that I didn't shut it down properly but I have just learned to ignore that. This problem is so consistant that I don't even try to print after making copies without unpluging the main power plug. Another issue you will probably run into is if you install Service Pack 3 on Win XP all your documents will print out in mirror image. HP's lame fix for this is to have you make custom settings in the print manager to remove the mirroring mode from the settings!! I am just about ready to change brands after being a faithful HP customer for over 25 years. They seem to have no interest in fixing known software issues anymore, as their push is to get new devices in the pipeline as soon as possible.
Good Luck

Will not turn on, last time used, I turned it off manually?


Try this:

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.
