This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Start up and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308427 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308427/ ) HOW TO: View and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
    At last if nothing works then clear the "Star up"
  7. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Start up
    If you are not satisfied then If you are using XP then repair it.

thanks

Shutdown problems


I assume it is not shutting down. Do a complete reset, unplug computer from wall push power button in for 3-5 seconds, then plug it in and restart the machine. Then let it complete the boot up process then go to start and shut it down again see if it shuts down now. Thanks for the question hope this assists you. John

I can restart my laptop i tried several times reboot


Press and hold down the Power On button for 5 seconds and the laptop will shut down. Then you can turn it back on again, and get the equivalent of a Restart.
Such problems usually appear if a program that runs in the background refuses to shut down, usually because it thinks it has unfinished tasks. Most of the times it's just a glitch, not a real case of unfinished task.

I can't seem to reboot my acer aspire 6920g dose anyone know how to do this as i can't work out how please help thanks stephanie


Hold down the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys simultaneously, which will open the task manager window. Select the Shut Down pull down menu and click on Restart. If this will not work as a last resort hold down your power key for approximately 5 seconds, which will hard shut down your system and lose all data from current running applications. To restart press the power button but windows may say recovered from a serious problem but the system should work again.
