Question about Computers & Internet
When I log off of my computer and shut it down, it automatically restarts it doesn't shut off. I am running windows xp but I did insert a disk for 2000 premium like 3 times. So I don't know if it is xp professional or just xp it says
Possible solutions for some users: -
All "crapdows" versions have the same function.
From the Start button, select menu/programs/accessories/system tools/system information, then click on the tools menu and select system configuration utility.
When the program opens, you'll see an advanced button on the bottom right corner. Press it.
Make sure you have disabled fast shutdown (CHECKED). Press OK/OK. If it prompts for restart, don't do it, you dont need to. Press cancel on that screen and then shutdown like you would normally.
Answer I have found I think the answer to that question, although I haven't had the time to test it since it is on a friends computer using xp pro. but you can if you like. go to the bios and check your modem if you are on a phone line and disable the auto start feature...You may find it only restarts when a call comes in...
Answer The bios settings turn the computer on automatically. I actually have mine set to turn on automatically in the morning before I get out of bed so it's already on when I get up.
Watch what you see on your screen as you boot up the computer and do whatever it tells you to do to boot up in bios (typically by hitting the F2 or Del key). Once in bios, go to the power section. In the power setting you should see something pertaining to the modem. If you do NOT want it to power up automatically, choose the Disable option.
If you DO want to power it up automatically, it will also ask for a time (day of month, hour, minute). If you set the day as 1, for example, it will power up on the 1st of the month at the time that is set. If you set the day of the month to zero (0), it will power up every day at that time.
Answer try turning off the hibernation feature that can be found through control panel->display->screensaver tab->power->hibernate and then turn off the hibernation feature
Answer Open your registry: and find the key PowerdownAfterShutdown and set it to "1" to power off the computer at shutdown, or "0" to reboot. Here is the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon If you don find it, create it(REG_SZ (String Value)) restart windows
Answer-- All are very good answers. How are you shutting down your computer? Do you go to start shut down and then press ok or do you hit alt + f4? First I would check to see if my pc was set on restart in the shutdown window just before you click ok. If it is change it to say shutdown. Then I would try some of the other answers but they take a good knowledge about computers if you mess up. Hope it helps.
Answer If you leave it plugged into the internet and it has viruses it will switch on automatically.

2000 Is Windows 2000. Why did you put that disk in? Did you start loading Windows 2000 or XP Pro, XP-Home?
It sounds like your switch is wired to the reset jumper on the motherboard or you are hitting reset.
Tell me what the computer screen has on it before it shuts down please.
I will wait on you answer. Do not rate until we are done.
