Question about E-Machines etower 466is PC Desktop

1 Answer

When I goto shut down the computer it goes through the motions but then it restarts and goes back into windows. In order to shut it down I have to go through and when it starts to boot I have press the power button. Is there a problem with the BIOS or does Emachines need a special to do the shut down properly?

    Sorry but there isn't a power options selection in the control panel just power management which didn't do anything. The bios can only be on/off or suspend it's set to suspend. When I just tried it I noticed that it beeps 3 or 4 timer before it restarts.

Try this, go to control panel, select Power Options, make sure the section that says "When I press the power button" it says shut down the computer.
You may also want to check in the BIOS where it says what do you want to do when you press the power button, you want both to say to shut off the PC.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck and have a pleasent day.

Startup fails to complete properly


When on the screen, and you have no icons hold control(ctrl) down and shift key and press escape(esc) your windows task manager should appear, goto the applications tab, at the bottom goto the tab New Task and left click, another window should appear with a text bar, type in the text bar explorer.exe and click ok, all the icons and your normal screen should reapear.

If your screen goes back to normal goto the start bar and goto run or search and type "regedit".
When the regedit window appears left click the " + " sign next to Hkey_local_mechine the the plus sign on software, scroll down to Microsoft folder and click the plus sign, scroll down to Windows nt folder and click the plus sign, the plus sign on Current version folder, then scroll down to winlogon folder and left click on the folder icon, on the right hand side of the screen look for "shell" double click on the icon and delete everything in the text bar and type explorer.exe and click ok and exit out of the window, restart the pc and everything should be back to normal.

pls post back and tell me what happens.cheers.
