Abnormal shutdown, can't restart

I got an error screen that said an error had occurred and to shut down immediately. The only way I could see to shut down was with the power button. On restart attempts it goes to a screen that says unsuccessful startuup has occurred with choices for startup: safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts. last known configuration, and start windows successfully. All choice go to a blue screen that says a problem detected, windows shutdown to protect damage, Check installation hardware and software (nothing new installed), disable BIOS memory options, use safe mode, F8 to select advanced startup options. I cannot get off this screen. Diagnostic information: Stop:0x000000ED
(0x8132A030, 0x0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). The unit does get hot but I've noticed no increase in heat prior to the problem occurring. I'm working with limited funds, what do I do now, any suggestions?

This is going to be one of two things. 1- An operating system error or hard drive failure resulting in operating system error. 2- A component failure or bad/loose connection that is shorting the system and causing the system to think there is an operating system error resulting in a blue screen. First, try to do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. If the repair, fresh install, or new hard drive (if you get this far and opt to purchase one) are successful and you get a blue screen to the effect of "detected a problem and had to shutdown, check newly installed hardware" then most likely you have a loose connection inside the machine. You will need to take the machine apart and check all connections. If the connections are good, then you have a failed device somewhere in the machine, and will need to take it in for diagnostics. I know that the latter sounds difficult and rather scary, but I believe that you're going to find this to be a simple operating system glitch or failed hard drive. If you have any other questions feel free to ask, and let me know how the repair turns out.

Start up error


Some users have gotten an error message similar to the following when attempting either to shutdown or restart Win XP:

STOP 0000009F, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
STOP 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
STOP 0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

TechNet and the Microsoft Knowledge Base have numerous articles discussing this type of error condition; for example, these. As a review of these articles will show, these are commonly device driver problems, but may also be caused by troublesome software (such as the notorious CrashGuard), or a problem in a system service. MSKB article Q262575 discusses a shutdown problem of this type, known to exist in Windows 2000 due to a resource (IRQ) conflict, if you have PACE Interlok anti-piracy software installed. This problem may occur in Windows XP as well.
Microsoft advises the following as one approach to these problems: Restart the computer. Press F8 during the restart and select “Last Known Good Configuration.” If you catch the problem when it first occurs (meaning you likely have installed only one or two drivers or new service), this will return you to a previous working condition. (Would System Restore accomplish the same thing? I don’t know, and don’t have a broken system to test it on.)

Microsoft reported similarly that these STOP code error message occur when Windows XP is trying to shut down devices. He says that he has seen this twice: once with Logitech Quickcam installed (with an unsupported driver), and once with a USB DSL modem that would hang if it wasn’t disconnected before shutdown.

How do I shut off my computer? L670 series


Normal shutdown: Click on Start button (lower left corner on most PC screens), and then select shutdown.

Abnormal shutdown: If computer is "frozen" and you can't click on Start button, press and hold the power on/off button until the computer shuts down.

Starts, runs a few seconds then shuts down. Will restart immediately, but then shuts down again. 32.5 KW, White diesel eng.


Check for a low lube oil sensor problem first. Could be low oil pressure or a failed sensor. The sensor is timed and if pressure doesn't come up, then unit is shutdown.

Check fuel filter and also air leaks in the fuel supply lines.

Check if the fuel shutoff solenoid is responsible for the shutdown. If it closes just before the engine quits, then it is being commanded to shutdown, probably as a safety interlock.

Computer restarts on shutdown


If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.

  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
