Windows take a long time to shut down


Uninstall unused programs. Get an up-to-date Antivirus program and scan your computer. Also get Malwarebytes to look for any Trojans. Windows Vista is notorious for taking a long time to boot or shutdown after a few years. Time to move to Windows 7 if you can, it has tighter code. Windows 8.1 is even better, but some hate the interface.

Windows does not displayed after boot, just "black screen".


Next time that you start windows, hold down the left shift key, that should prevent programs from starting automatically as windows boots. If the computer then operates normally, then take a look at your startup list (use msconfig). Otherwise...

Try starting in safe mode, see if problem still exists. If it does, something is going on with core windows system files. If not, then a program (which automatically starts) or driver is causing the issue.

In either case, you can also start in safe mode, but a version that prompts you if you want to load every file (and there are a bunch of them). The last file that is loaded before problem appears is usually the culprit.

Good Luck.

Dear,

You should use Nero 6 or above version. It is very easy to use.
Just create an image of original disc and then burn it on the blank disc.The copied disc will work fine, I am sure.

Windows XP stops at "shutting down"....


It seems to me that You need to uncheck the "delete paging file at shutdown". Deleting the paging file slows the shutdown of Your system considerably.

PC SHUTS DOWN MONITOR AND FAN


Hi Brandy19960,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please do the following steps:


Step – 1

Right-click on My Computer, open Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” Uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”



Step - 2


To change the setting, click Start --> Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK.

Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.

In the right pane, find “Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile.”

NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant “roadrunner” reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables “Clear virtual memory pagefile,” and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.



Step - 3

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem (Tip from Terri Stratton). Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked.


Step - 4
----------

Try a Shutdown shortcut -


For a shortcut to RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

For a shortcut to SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Step 5
---------

WORK-AROUND: Disable power management for your USB hub: Open Device Manager (click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK). Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub. Click Power Management. Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.” OK your way out

Step – 6
-----------
Click on the Start button.
Select Run from the menu.
In the run dialog box type “msconfig”.
Click OK.

Once in the msconfig utility select the startup tab. In the startup tab you will see several programs listed with a checkbox beside it. If there is a check mark beside the application listed, the application will startup when your computer starts up.

ELLIN

Windows XP shutdown


The computer is just doing it's internal diagnostics before it shuts down. This uses fairly little amount of physical memory. Every computer handles it differently depending on your configuration. If the computer does shut down on it's own....there is no real problem present.

Hard drive heads crash upon shutdown


Dear delfixya

Hard Drives have one running speed once they are fired up, unlike a car engine which can idle down when not driving. They don't spin down until the power is shut off, and that is after all data is safe and RAM is not shadowing data from the HD.

Hard drives making clicking sounds after shutting down is an imminent sign of impending failure of the heads. Replacement is the best thing.
