Just press and hold the power button for 5 sec. and it will shutdown the computer. (Improper way of shutting down). But try to check after turning it back on and see if it will now shutdown properly. If not, there is a software problem on your computer.

Hold the power button down for about five or six seconds, it will shut down then. If it keeps doing this, you need to look at what is running in the background that is preventing you from shutting down via the menu.

Click START
click RUN
type in msconfig
take a look at what is scheduled to load at startup and then try to decide if you really need to have that application on all of the time. BE CAREFUL. If you don't recognize an entry, leave it alone until you can learn what it is.

Power button remains on when laptop is shutdown(probook6550b)


Are you sure this happens when the laptop is shutdown? According to what I know, this happens when the laptop or any other computer is in sleep mode.

To check if your laptop is sleeping, press any key on your key board.


Or

If this continues, try this.

when your laptop is on, click on the charge icon on the right side of your task-bar. You will see where it says "change what the power button does" from here you can some how fix your problem

Good Luck!

How can i reboot my computer please


Rebooting a computer means, pressing the Reset/Restart button. But if you wish to securely restart it, click Start (Windows XP) and then "ShutDown" button, again click "Restart". There's another option when Windows XP is in Classic mode, once you press the Shutdown button, you'll see a small window showing "Shutdown", you can click the arrow button next to the "Shutdown" and then select "Restart", now click the "Ok" button to restart the system. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, click "Start", if you don't see the "Restart" button, you might be seeing the "Shutdown" button, just next to the "Shutdown" button, there's a small right arrow button, click it and select "Restart". Your system will restart.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I am happy with my N150 but is there a single button to switch off the computer other than going to "start" and "shut down" which may last several minutes in the process and more if...


The default action for the Power button on the start menu in Windows 7 is shutdown, and in Vista is Sleep, which isn't necessarily useful for everybody, so we'll explain how to change it here.
Change Windows 7 Shutdown Button
clicking on the start menu and choosing Properties.All you need to do is change the drop-down for Power Button Action to whatever you would prefer.
Change Windows Vista Power Buttons
You can configure this setting easily by using the advanced power settings panel, which is a little tricky to get to normally, but we'll take the shortcut.
Open a command prompt (type cmd into the start menu search bar), and then type in the following:powercfg.cpl,1You could also take the long route (Control Panel \ Power Options \ Change Plan Settings \ Change Advanced Power Settings)

My ipod touch wont let me go 2 themain meun but i


Hi,

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button (It's the round button located on the device right below the screen) at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. Sometimes just pressing the home button will bring you back to the home screen regardless of where you are on your iPod.



If that doesn't work, try: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1394?viewlocale=en_US

Shutdown and restart problem wit my hcl notebook.


If you go to the internet often, you need at least 1 gb of RAM. And also you need to constantly run Disk Cleanup maybe twice a month. Have enugh hard drive capacity (ROM) : preferable 80 gb or more. To find Disk Cleanup ( Start - All Programs - Accessories - System tools - Disk Cleanup). If not working, save all your documents and valuabel information in another storage mean and reinstall your operating software. And after, run Disk Cleanup twice a month and upgrade your RAM. Consider a good Antivirus.

My x50z asus laptop wouldnot start when i press on/off push button unless after tens of start presses .now i Hibernated my laptop but still start button don't work.so to have my laptop operate i had to use...


did you check the switch if can do a shutdown process after you press the power button for 2 or 3 seconds? If not there's a problem with the switch...but if it shutdowns ok then I suggest have the OS re-installed to isolate the problem. You can use a separate HDD to do a disk recovery install. At the same time you can make the original disk as your backup.

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck
