Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

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.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

KDL52EX700 shuts down and restarts


If it is showing a blue scree of death (BSOD) and shuts down before you can read the error message try this:
Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Scroll down below Safe Mode and you will see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. Select it and reboot your machine. Next time it boots up you will be able to read the error message. You'll probably need a system disc or repair disc to fix the blue screen error message.

    1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
    2. Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
    3. Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section of the Advanced tab.
    4. Deselect the Automatically restart checkbox under System failure .
    5. Click OK to close the Startup and Recovery window, click OK again to close the System Properties window, and then close the Control Panel window.
    6. Restart the PC.
    Disabling the automatic restart setting allows time to view the error message that displays on the screen. Contact the manufacturer of the program or device that is causing the error for specific information about the error message.

    My XPS 1530 will not shutdown, it only restarts


    Try running chkdsk /r and then restart the computer. to do that, click on START, RUN, in the open field, type 'cmd' and press <enter>. A dos window will open. At the blinking cursor, type 'chkdsk /r' and press <enter>. You will get a message that the drive can't be locked and do you want to run it the next time Windows starts. Type 'y' and press <enter>. Now shutdown the computerand restart it. Chkdsk will run and it may take some time. Depending on your installation, you will see a blue screen that will show the progress. Sometimes the screen will stay black and the hard drive light will flash. That's ok. Let it run until Windows loads. Wait until it is completely loaded and then try shutting it down normally.

    Good luck and let me know how it works out.

    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)

    Viao PCG-GRX650 won't shut down fully


    DaveBaker,

    Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.


    Go to start>run>then type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely.

    Next
    Try doing this. Hold down "ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick.

    And, finally

    You cannot log off, restart, or shut down your Windows XP-based computer This article talks about an issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.


    Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you.
    Thanks much!
