Shut it down anyway and immediately turn it ack on and do a thourough cleanup. update your virus control and run it> go to Tools (at top) of screen and then internet options and clear your history and cookies>go to all programs> accessories>system tools.clean disc and do that little chore.. If you have a registry cleaner program run that also. When you are all finished try shutting the computer down again, This time if it doesnt work, go and ahead and shut it off anyway and turn it back on and do a defrag (same place as clean disc. Good luck and let me know..

Shuting off computor


Hello:
If this unit is shutting down your computer while it is installed and the computer does not shut down with it not installed then I strongly suggest you not use it. After all it is refurbished meaning there was a problem with it in the past for it to need to be repaired..

MacBook locked up, won?t close down


The first thing to try is this: It is a keyboard shortcut to shut down a mac laptop. Press the control key (ctrl) at the bottom and press the eject button at the same time (top button all the way to the right which looks like an arrow pointing up with a line under it). This should bring up a window asking if you want to restart, sleep,cancel or shut down. Click Yes to shutdown! If this does not work, here is the second option. Press the power button down on the upper right side,and just hold it down until the computor turns off. I have done this many times with my own computor when it has crashed with no ill effects, I have heard from Apple that it is not good for your computor and can cause problems, so I would only do this if the keyboard short cut does not work Good luck and if you find this helpful please comment!.

Computor shuts down. screen goes to black. turn back on and get siren sound and screen says shut down due to thermal event. hit F4 to resume. had same problem a couple years ago and they replaced fan


try applying new cooling pest between cpu heatsink and cpu. Heat from cpu surface should be quickly transferred to heat sink. Either coolent problem or heatsink doesnot properly fit on cpu. But be carefull, you need an 'EXPERT' to do this, or you end up damaging everything.

My computor shuts down after 30 minutes or more


I would start with a heat event problem. Check the easy stuff first, are the fans running, is there a lot of dust inside the computer. And that failing, get some artic 5 pop off the heat sync and apply a skinny little coat.
Should that not do it, next look to the video card, that can give you hangs and shut downs. Make sure it is seated properly. There are more things to check but that just might get you started for now. If this doesn't help please let us know.

Can not connect camera on to computor


I would make sure I had enough system resources to run the program check to make sure you aren't having a problem with the driver for the camera software it may need updating in order to properly work. you can uninstall the provided software and reinstall it. Also try connecting the camera before you turn on computer (NHW) should recognize and notify you that new hardware has been found have your disk ready and let your new hardware wizard guide you through the rest of setup. you can always ask me to further assist you good luck and much success. wutxtye0rjd9d9ekmodqt1eoxkvn9hr9qjz1l3dabggyud7sdgr36czsrfxqenadhnijx9nfayi+sz1sug0aaaaasuvork5cyii=

When i power my computor down it , just turns back on


Hi, check the on / off switch, it is most likely sticky. To test it open your case and trace the wires from the switch to the motherboard. unplug the power switch wire and bridge the 2 pins together, this will start the computer. then power down and if it shuts down properly then clean or replace the switch.
