Tip

Steps to improve the shutdown times.


Start Registry Editor and navigate to the following key:
[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown value to 0
Or, using Group Policy Editor [for Windows XP Professional]
Click Start, Run and type Secpol.msc
Click Local Policies | Security Options
In the right-pane, set Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile to Disabled
However, this setting is not the only cause for slow shutdowns. Non-responsive programs and Services also contribute to slow shutdowns. If the problem is seen recently after installing a third-party driver or software, try a System Restore rollback to see if that resolves the slow shutdown problem.

My samsung pc work too slow and it shot down.


IF LAPTOP: Please check your charger`s voltage if matches with your laptop`s voltage. try to turn it on without battery. put every cable out from your computer, usb devices and sticks as well.

IF PC: turn on your pc and do not touch for couple of time. just watch your computer and try to understand when it shuts down itself. is shutdown is a direct power off or a classical windows shutdown process.

try to find your computer`s specifications (if windows, right click on your MY COMPUTER icon and click PROPERTIES option. Then you will see some information abot your computer like CPU speed and RAM memory. Check if you have enough space in your hard disk. You have to have around 1 gb free space to work with your computer. try to disable some startup programs which you can see next to your clock in your START taskbar (for windows). Right click to the icon`s and click exit. Try to understand if your computer is overheating. If so please ask a technican.

please try them.

How do i reboot my computer


When you click start, turn off, do you get the option to restart? Or do you have maybe a little arrow in the corner like on Vista that allows you to change options?

If you get really annoyed and really just want to restart right now, you can open up run (Start>Run)and type shutdown -r or command then when MSDOS Command comes up type shutdown -r.

PC SHUTS DOWN MONITOR AND FAN


Hi Brandy19960,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please do the following steps:


Step – 1

Right-click on My Computer, open Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” Uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”



Step - 2


To change the setting, click Start --> Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK.

Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.

In the right pane, find “Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile.”

NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant “roadrunner” reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables “Clear virtual memory pagefile,” and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.



Step - 3

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem (Tip from Terri Stratton). Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked.


Step - 4
----------

Try a Shutdown shortcut -


For a shortcut to RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

For a shortcut to SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Step 5
---------

WORK-AROUND: Disable power management for your USB hub: Open Device Manager (click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK). Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub. Click Power Management. Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.” OK your way out

Step – 6
-----------
Click on the Start button.
Select Run from the menu.
In the run dialog box type “msconfig”.
Click OK.

Once in the msconfig utility select the startup tab. In the startup tab you will see several programs listed with a checkbox beside it. If there is a check mark beside the application listed, the application will startup when your computer starts up.

Regards
ELLIN
