    laptop does not shutdown it hangs while shutdowning what is solution why does it happen

  • Anonymous Feb 14, 2009

    I have an Acer3620 laptop and when I try to shut it down it seems to hang at the "Windows is shutting down" screen. Another problem is hibernating, no such luck with that either! The screen goes white and stays that way. The only way to resume is to restart the computer. Which is a pain! If I wanted to do that I would have shut it off in the first place. Any help would be great. I am running XP home, updates done, AV and AntiSpy too.

In my case with an Aspire 4710 it was the old or incorrect chipset drivers from the Acer site.
After downloading the proper new drivers from Intel all is fine.

I had a similar problem with my Aspire 3005 WLMi: it would hang during shutdown, no messages and all you could do was to press the on/off button. The problem was solved by ... renewing the battery! It was due anyway.

I learned one thing in the process: do not leave your laptop on the mains for long periods. It will heat up the fully charged battery, a combination of factors it doesn't like. Instead discharge to 40% and take it out and store dry and cool.

My acer aspire one hangs when i set to standby mode


You don't specify but it seems like you are using Windows. This problem can be caused because you didn't set up an Account name. You can add one user, give yourself full admin rights, and do NOT require a password.

Default in Windows from standby is to log in as user...it goes wonky if no user is set. It can't find the user and does not know what to do, you have to reboot to get out of it, all stuff saved is lost.

BTW When you are at the Standby screen, hold down SHIFT key and it will change to Hibernate, if that option is available. Hibernate saves all your stuff to the hard drive and powers down..much better for batteries than Standby

Hope this helps

Turn on your laptop...as soon as it turns you push thepower botton start pressing F8, this will take you to the system recovery screen. You will need to pick the option that says system restore.

Windows vista on Accer aspire 5315 reboots over and over


Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
For XP
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
For Vista
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center
