This is a problem with the operating system. If you are running on an older version of windows and have at least 1gb of ram i would recommend an update to windows 7, it is much more stable then past versions.
If the update is not an option you could try cleaning it up to see if anything improves, try CCleaner its a very good cleaning software.

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

Tip

Customize the Shut down button windows 7


Customize the Shut down button The default action of the Start Menu's Shut down button is to turn off your PC. If you want to use the button for another action, such as restarting your PC, you click the arrow to the right of the Shut down button and select an action from the drop-down menu.
What if you rarely shut your PC down completely but frequently restart it? You can change the Shut down button's default action to be Restart -- or Switch user, Log off, Lock, Sleep or Hibernate.
To change your default, right-click the Start button and select Properties. On the Start Menu tab, click the "Power button action" drop-down menu and select which action you want to be the default. Then click OK, and OK again.

Toshiba satellite L750-iq6 won't shut down or sleep?!?


That is a software issue with the OS. Was it always like this? If not, try a system restore to some time in the past when you know the unit was working fine.

I have hp pavilion tx 1000 since 3 days it takes 7 minuted to start and takes forever to shut it down so i have to forcefully shut it down please please help me


look up what you have in the startup files, alot of stuf you download puts thier product in the startup and it will take longer for your pc to turn them on and off:

Goto start menu and type in:
MSCONFIG

goto start up and turn off anything that you do not need to run at start up....becareful that you do not turn off key components to your system...just look for software you have downloaded...this will help speed up your start up and shutdown....

Windows xp pro wont shut down


Just about any system can be forced to shut down by holding the Power key/button for at least 5 seconds, some may require 10. This is not a good way to stop a system since stupid Windows has to unload in an organized manner or it can get hopelessly confused.
You might try running the Restore routine and back-date your system to an earlier day:
Open the Start menu, click on Run, enter "rstrui.exe" (no quotes) and click OK to start.
You should get a calendar showing which past days are available to run.
You won't lose any of your work but any updates installed since that past day are null and void so you may get messages from your AV program or from Win itself.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down...


When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).
