Hi, you have one or more corrupted programs whitch are not closing down. You could try uninstalling any software installed since the problem started, or reset your os to a previos time when it worked properly; to do this start in safe mode by pressing the ESC button during boot up

How can i install my dell gx60 to factory setting


Dell computers will have a recovery disc set or recovery partition. If when booting the computer you see a option for (the F# key will vary) F11 Recovery, press that and follow the prompts for a "Destructive Restore" Otherwise you would need to insert the first recovery disc and follow the instructions on your screen. Sometimes the manufacturer doesn't include the discs and there will be a program on your computer to create a set or you can order a set from Dell.

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

Ell 360 optiplex is not shuting down what is the problem


If you are under MS Windows XP, and after you shut down the machine it hangs at the screen stating "It is now safe to turn off your computer" than this may fix your problem:

This issue arrises when you have a computer that supports Advanced Power Management (APM). By default APM is not enabled in Windows. If the BIOS on yoursystem is set for APM, and you upgrade to Windows XP, you will receive the "It is now safe to turn off your computer" message when you shutdown at which point the computer stops responding.

To fix this issue:

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.
  3. Click the APM tab.
  4. Check to select the Enable Advanced Power Management Support check box, and then click OK.

My comp hang on "windows is now shutting down" screen


Ok,
Try disconnecting the D-Link Wireless modem, maybe some networking log off is making trouble ...
If not, go into safe mode... And try removing some newly installed applications, they could be making a fuss...
Hard shutting down your PC doesn't create this kind of problem, so don't worry about that...
Tell me if you have solved anything
