You can try holding the power button in for at least 10 seconds or more until the computer shuts off.

Well,first you have to check the functionality of the on/off button conected on the is possible the button remain stuck
if the problem is happening after closing the operating sistem,without touching the buton,well this must be solved by reinstaling the operating sistem ex:windows.
it can be also  a short circuit on the mainboard..but a small probability..
good luck

PC shuts down. When you turn on the pc it shuts

try to change the source, that should solve the problem. But before try reset CMOS. (if you don`t know how to do it by jumper simple remove the battery from the mainboard for 5 minutes and then plug it back on..and after that turn on your computer and press F1 for default settings)

Computer well not boot

The computer may have done a routine software update that automatically reboots the PC when complete. HP is known for this. If it fires up when you turn it on, no worries. If its DOA then thats another issue. Best regards.

I cant get my mouse pad to work after turning it off in control panel. Im on windows vista and on a lap top. Curser wont work so cant go back in to turn it on again.

Hold the Alt key and press F4. Press Enter to shut down the computer.

Once it's shut down, press the POWER button on the computer's system box to turn the computer on again and reset it back to normal.

Hope this works.

My computer keeps telling me that internet explore has caused an error it tells me to send a report and reset my computer i have done that and the problem steel remains

Restart your computer and see if happens again.

If that doesn't work shut your computer down, wait 30 seconds, and power it back up. Turn the computer back on. Just before the windows screen appears press f8 and enter safe mode. Once you get into windows press your internet explorer icon one time. You won't get a connection but it will try to repair any problems.

Then restart your computer the normal way.
