When go to start then shut down computer does not shut down why


Something is running in the background that is interfering. Most of the time this is Windows Update taking its' sweet time downloading updates and installing, especially if you have it set to auto update. Could be something else though. Hit CTRL/ALT/DEL, open Task Manager and see what is running. Right click on anything open and tell it to stop process.

How to restore and then update dell 8300


Usually, after you re-install ... and set UPDATE mode (for Windows & IE) to automatic ... the system will look for and download updates (to Windows, browsers, etc.) automatically. So, shut down and restart ... and let it do it's (automatic) download & install . It may take quite a while, to bring you up to the latest Windows XP version.

On my everex impact pc window was updated , while windows was starting and now i receive the following error message when booting up "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered error. windows...


If I undrestand this correctly, this was a windows update? In some caese after a windows update, a restart is required and during shutdown and restart it configures that update. If the computer is shut down, "unexpectedly" or shut down before update is finished, then the update won't complete. If this is what happened, shut down computer by pressing power button on front of tower. Start system back up using on/off button. When screen comes up with options to start mormally or..., arrow up to "start in safe mode". Wait a couple of minutes and a window will come up "what is safe mode". Scroll down in that window until you see "what is safe mode", highlighted in different color, and click on that. It will take a couple of minutes, and another window will come up where you can scroll down to "start safe mode", click on this. This will take a couple of minutes and a window will come up with a suggested restart time and you will see a box "next". Click on the box. You should see the update in the list of things that come up. Click on the process just prior to the update and click "start or next". This will take a little time and will restart your system. When it comes up, let it think until you see a message "system restore complete", click on ok. Now you can click on start, find control panel and click on to open. In your list find "windows udate". Right click on and open. At the top left of screen you will see "check for updates" and click on that. It should recommend the update you just removed. If it it "important" check box, and install. Restart when update is finished and give it the time to do it's configurations.
If I misunderstood your problem you can let me know at "add a comment" or try reposting. Make sure you clarify between a "windows update" or a "windows upgrade".

Hi Have a Dell Pc Windows 7 OS. it will not shut down unless I hold the button. Start-up in good shut down is always a problem


This is a possible malware or virus attack. Your system is encountering data or system corruption preventing it to execute the command during shut down. Best fix is to reinstall Windows 7 in your computer to erradicate all errors and make sure to install an updated security software (antivirus) afterwards.

I shut computer after windows updates and now it won't power up


1.Try booting into safe mode (F8 on startup) and then uninstall the update or you can run system restore. 2.try going to the advanced boot options and choose "Last known good configuration" 3.The last option is 'to do a repair install' if you have a Windows XP CD you can just do a repair of the OS.

My emachine won't shut down locks up


Do a hard reboot, hold the powerr button for 13 seconds and it should power down.  You might have to unplug if this doesn't work.  It could have hung up during windows updates (this happens alot), let me know if this works and update me.

Cann't shut down properly


If you are trying to shut down with the camera still connected!!??GOTO the bottom right of screen and ""safely remove hardware"" see if the system will shut down.....sometimes a hardware driver does not want to shut down so you must turn it off and plug it in again when you start windows again....

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.

Do you mean .Net framwork 2.2 update from microsoft?
Press & hold the power on button on the E-Machine. That will shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Wait a minute. Re-connect the power cord to you're PC & press the power button on you're PC. Windows should start & may run check disk before loading windows. Continue updating windows through windows update service. There are more
.Net framwork updates. If you're system continues to run restarting shut it down as before. This time when you start up the PC start pressing the F5 key every two seconds. Windows Advanced Option Menu will load. Choose Safe mode. Open control panel, open add/remove programs. At the top of the window & slightly to the right of the Add or Remove Programs windows is a box next to Show Updates. Left click in the box. Scroll down & find .Net framwork 2.2 & uninstall it. Close all opened windows & restart the PC.
Continue to update you're windows.

Please let me know if this has helped.
Good Luck!
