Hi,

May be you have to check the power management settings which will shut down the compter when you press the power button.

First update the BIOS to the latest version before Installing windows.

My IBM Thinkpad won't turn on after improper shutdown.


Two things have me confused. Improper shut down (how did it happen) and "it won't turn on", it won't power up or windows will not start up. Just a little more information and you'll probably be flooded with answers.

My dad's Dell Dimension 2350 windows XP home edition won't power off when you try to shut it down .


There is one solution that you can do, you can hold the power button for about 10 seconds and this will shut your computer down, this is known as a hard shut down. My question would be how often does this happen? If it happens at every shutdown I would recommend scanning your computer for viruses and malware. If that doesn't fix the problem I would recommend backing up your data and restore your operating system.

Launch start up repair


Im not sure if you are wanting to get to start-up repair or trying to get rid of it
If you want to access it, Boot system and do a hard nshut down. Restart, you will have the option to Launch start up repair or to start windows normally
If you are getting the option screen unwanted, this is primarily due to improper shutdown.
Whenever you shut down always try to use shutdown, restart options in taskbar.
If in the event you are stuck and need to do a hard shutdown try pressing Ctrl/Alt/del simultaneously
to access task manager.
Here you can end processes hung up or do a proper shutdown

I press the power off button and it doesn't power off


You should never power down by pressing the power button unless your system is deadlocked and won't respond to any other actions. Powering off in this fashion can cause you to lose data, corrupt files, and improperly shut down Windows.

Nonetheless, if you are in need of shutting down the laptop in this fashion you must hold the power button instead of only pressing it. You'll find this in the power settings of the device. Honestly, the power button may even be set to do nothing, which is possible.

To properly shut down your new Pavilion laptop, which should be running Windows 7, follow this process: Click Start > Shut Down

Start is now simply a circular Windows icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and shut down has an arrow pointing down next to it. Click the words shut down instead of the arrow which will bring up other power save options.

Printer cycles on/off and displays "improper shut down"


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
