What is happening is it is hibernating not shutting down, open up acer empowering technology and go to the power settings or click on the battery icon in taskbar and click power options, then there will be instructions that say when i turn off; power off and not hibernate as probably selected.

I press the power off button and it doesn't power off


You should never power down by pressing the power button unless your system is deadlocked and won't respond to any other actions. Powering off in this fashion can cause you to lose data, corrupt files, and improperly shut down Windows.

Nonetheless, if you are in need of shutting down the laptop in this fashion you must hold the power button instead of only pressing it. You'll find this in the power settings of the device. Honestly, the power button may even be set to do nothing, which is possible.

To properly shut down your new Pavilion laptop, which should be running Windows 7, follow this process: Click Start > Shut Down

Start is now simply a circular Windows icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and shut down has an arrow pointing down next to it. Click the words shut down instead of the arrow which will bring up other power save options.

Boot error IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL.


Reformatting is a little drastic.

This is a somewhat common driver error - when your machine sends out the signal to devices to shut down, one of them is throwing errors (bad ones) in the shut-down process. You need to find the hardware (or less likely, software) device that is not shutting down properly.

It is very often video drivers; try changing your video drivers to the Microsoft defaults and then shutting down, rebooting, and shutting down again. If the IRQ error does not turn up, you have a video driver error, and need to visit the HP web site and get the latest video drivers for that laptop model.

If it is not the video driver, you need to look into what new drivers or devices have been installed that might be non-standard. Unplug the laptop from everything that plugs in - USB devices, printers, SD and USB memory devices, hubs, everything. If this fixes the problem work backwards until you have re-installed the problem device and try to uninstall and install it again with the latest drivers.

It might also be the wireless network facility not shutting down properly. Try shutting this off in the hardware (with the wireless button on the keybaord) and DISABLING it in network settings and try shutting down.

Once you find the hardware device that is not shutting down properly, UNINSTALLING it in the DEVICE MANAGER and then rebooting and reinstalling it from scratch with the latest drivers usually works.

Good luck...
