First, run anti-virus software. Make sure the system is virus free. I use AVAST FREE. register, download , run, schedule a boot scan.

Any new Hardware or software can cause a glitch in the services to be terminated when you shut down. Worms and Trojans are notorious for causing a pc to Hang.

Next, you must remember that the Windows operating system is not a single program, but rather a collection of individual services. Each of these services must be stopped during shut down. Therefore, a glitch related to any one of the services may prolong the shut down process or cause the shut down process to fail completely.

Many people have claimed that the Nvidia Driver Helper Service (used with Nvidia video cards) causes extremely slow shut downs. However, this is one of those cases in which an updated video driver usually solves the problem. Other people have mentioned that disabling the terminal services greatly expedites the shut down process. The Terminal Services are used for remote assistance, remote desktop, and fast user switching. If you do not use any of these features, then the Terminal Services can be safely disabled. You can access the services console by entering the SERVICES.MSC command at the Run prompt.
Another potential cause of slow system shut downs is that Windows contains an option to erase the system’s virtual memory and system hibernation cache at shut down. These security features are disabled by default because they take a long time to complete, and cause the system shutdown to look like it has frozen. Although these features are disabled by default, some privacy software will enable it.

To determine whether or not these features are enabled on your PC, enter the GPEDIT.MSC command at the Run prompt to load the Group Policy Editor. Now, navigate through the console tree to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options. At this point, locate the Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile option in the column to the right and verify that it is disabled, as shown in Figure C. If this option is enabled, you can disable it by double clicking on the setting and choosing the Disabled option.

Jamesangus,
Hold the power button down for 10 seconds or a little more and if that doesn't shut it off? Disconnect the power cord. Either of these methods should only be used as a last resort in the order posted.
Let us know if you have any problems when you start it back up?

It will unexpectedly shut down with the error number 1073741819. NT Authority\system C\windows\system services exe


Try starting up in Safe Mode. When the computer turns on , immediately begin hitting F8 like mad until you get a screen where you can use the arrow keys to select how to start up. Use "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking".

If you can boot up fine without the error, then you have a program installed which starts up along with Windows and crashes, causing Windows to shutdown. Check your installed programs, especially anything you might have removed/added right before this started happening.

If you can't start up in Safe Mode either, there may be something wrong with your Windows installation.

Tip

Create One-Click Shutdown and Reboot Shortcuts:


First, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop, choosing New, and then choosing Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard appears. In the box asking for the location of the shortcut, type shutdown. After you create the shortcut, double-clicking on it will shut down your PC.
But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty, like this:
shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC" Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.
I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my PC, and one for rebooting. Here are the ones I use:
shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8!" shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ;)!"
Switch What it does
-s Shuts down the PC.
-l Logs off the current user.
-t nn Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.
-c "messagetext" Displays a message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.
-f Forces any running applications to shut down.
-r Reboots the PC.

How do i reboot my acer aspire e500


If in windows, look under the "start" menu for "shutdown". If that doesn't work, most PC's will shutdown if you press and hold the power button for roughly 5 seconds, but doing this can be negative for the equipment if the operating system doesn't respond in time. You might try just pressing the power button one time to see if the O.S. will respond and attempt to shut itself down gracefully. If it doesn't, then just hold the power button in till the machine cuts off. Hopefully, you won't have to make a habit of that. The ideal way to shutdown is to "tell" the O.S. to shutdown, so it doesn't cause a hard drive head crash or file corruption, which while both are remote, are still a potential with a hard loss of power.
Good luck!

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.
