Question about Mitac Computers & Internet

Open Question

My Mitac PC has Windows XP installed. Just recently I have been unable to put the PC into stand by mode. When I click on stand by the PC shuts down then reboots, no matter how many times I try. I have tried turning the PC off to no avail. Is it a fault with the PC, or some other problem. Bill

SOURCE: can not save to bios

windows and the bios needs to know that the operating system can be shut down through windows, so when you go into the F2 or Del on boot up, go into advanced cmos setings and look for ACPI and make sure it is enabled. This sets the motherboard to support shutdown. Save and exit settings and reboot. Now go to control panel>performance and maintanance>power options and set the correct instruction for shutdown to shut the pc down. Remember evertime you remove the cmos battery or reset with jumpers you have to reset date and time and anything else you have changed to suit your set up

SOURCE: Hard Drive?

A Windows setting is what's rebooting the computer, and thats a bit hard to change since it wont run Windows at this point.

The clicking could have been the hard drive. I'd run the manufacturers diagnostic on it. Download (from another computer obviously) the diagnostic file(s) from (??). You didnt say what brand it is. Let's say it's a Seagate, go to seagate.com and then to support.

The diagnostic file with create a bootable floppy or cd. Set your computer to boot from which ever of those. Run the diagnostic. If it's a faulty drive and it's under warranty, check the website for info on how to get it replaced for free.

Send a comment after you've done that and we'll go from there.

SOURCE: NF-M2S restarts.

Hi! Hope this helps. Please consider other components or cards installed on your motherboard. Please try removing one at a time then have it start and shutdown if it works. For harddisk management please see the power management at control panel, select the how or when you are goin' to set your harddrive sleep, standby, etc.. We had also met "Standby Mode Problem", by cleaning viruses, spywares and even the registry it can be fixed. Please search for the right and specific tools. Goodluck!

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

To put Windows 7 to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the word Shut Down then click Sleep or Hibernate.

How can I get the disc to play on a windows vista 7 hp computer


There are a couple ways you can do it , first try " Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 " , http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx this will link you to Microsoft's Direct Download Page , once you have it downloaded , install it & reboot your pc . You should then be able to install the disc in the virtual xp enviroment . Another option is trying the built in compatibility mode , place the disc in the pc , open the disc's main folder using windows explorer . Then right click on the executable file ( normally named setup.exe ) select properties from the drop down menu , click the compatibility tab , select run in " windows xp sp2 " mode & check the box at the bottom " run as adminstrator " . If you are unable to install it after trying both of these methods leave me a message here with a email adress or instant messenger id so I can contact you directly .

Hmmm... Have you updated your driver recently or installed any new software?

If then, you are seeing options to go to safe mode na? Go to safe mode and open "system restore." Try to restore to some near date.

Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


Hi,

Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.

Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

Windows XP will not shut down.


I don't know if you've tried this yet,but here it is just in case.



Click Start, and then click Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>In the Power Options Properties dialog box, on the Power Schemes tab, click the Power schemes drop-down list and select the power scheme that most closely matches how you use your computer.
adjust the System standby and System hibernates settings if you are not happy with the default selection. On the Advanced tab, you can adjust the default behavior of the power buttons on your computer. Click Apply>OK

My comp hang on "windows is now shutting down" screen


Ok,
Try disconnecting the D-Link Wireless modem, maybe some networking log off is making trouble ...
If not, go into safe mode... And try removing some newly installed applications, they could be making a fuss...
Hard shutting down your PC doesn't create this kind of problem, so don't worry about that...
Tell me if you have solved anything

Windows vista home premium service pack one


There are a myriad of problems that could have resulted in this.
1. A virus has shut down your system
2. Memory has gone bad
3. Last software you installed has corrupted the hard drive
Possible solutions:
1. When it is coming up – hit F8 (over and over again) till the menu comes up :

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

See if you can get in safe mode. IF NOT – repeat these steps, and instead of clicking on Safe Mode – Click on “Last Known Good Configuration”
IF THAT does not work:
Insert your recovery CD and see if you can boot up to that.
If THAT still does not work, you have a hardware problem, either memory chips (RAM) or your Hard Drive.
