    Don't really understand.. All PC's have to have the Off button held down for a few seconds to turn them off.. If you still have the operating systems running.. If you are running Windows, shut it down correctly via the start button first.. That is left mouse click the start button, then select turn off computer. That way the o/s (operating system) will shut the pc down. There maybe an option in the pc's bios or o/s config. to have the computer go all the way down. Anyway, most pc's behave that way, it's not abnormal.

There is an option at the BIOS setings of your pc that would allow you to turn off the computer at once or after holding the power button for about 4 seconds. Although this is only effective if you havent loaded any OS like winXP in your computer

Hello how come my rca mp3 player doesnt charge when i plug it in my computer


You most likely have not turned the player off. Connect to your USB port, switch on the player using the slide switch on the side. The screen will light up. To make the battery charge, turn off the player by holding down the 'play' button until you get the bye-bye message. A couple of seconds later the screen will go black and the battery will start charging. Leave overnight if the battery is dead flat.

The Startup repair program is running and wont stop


A complete scan can take several hours to complete. If you want to shut it all down unplug it and remove the battery. Leave the battery out for at least 10 minutes, and until it cools down.

I get nothing from my player.


I just had this problem again this morning and solved it in about a minute. For my player all I do is hold the "on" button down for about one minute (maybe a minute and a half) then try to turn it on normally a few seconds later. It has always solved my problem!
