Dell Vostro 3550 :: Cannot Shut Down Computer After Update Bios A11
Mar 2, 2013
I'm having a problem with my Dell Vostro 3550 Core i5, completely shut down Windows, screen off completely, but the power light and the keyboard still light, until the battery is completely discharged.
I think the reason is the OS I'm using (Windows 8), I have changed the operating system (win7) but the problem is not fixed, I checked the hardware it still works fine
I have a hp pavilion dv5-1170ei and it had problems with the audio and the quick launch buttons after upgrading to Win 7. I decided to update the bios because that was the only thing that i had not updated. Now the computer is frozen with the BIOS update still running. I once had the same problem with a dv5-1199ei and it worked fine after upgrading the BIOS. By the way i upgraded from Vista Home premium to Win 7 Ultimate.
I have a dell vostro 3550. I Just got my mother board replaced a few days back... But now the system starts shows vostro logo.. Then starts again... Never reaching the os selection menu..( I have a dual boot so I need to select the os to boot in)....
I have recently purchased Vostro 3550 with Finger Print reader. After i updating all drivers and checked in dell diagnostic also. Nothing happen to no response for my reader. I purchased 07-05-02012.It haven't worked while i purchased itself and i updated all drivers
ST MICRO SCREEN DETECTION SENSOR ISN'T COMPATIBLE WITH THIS VERSION OF WINDOWS - ? Wat i need to do for this???????????
I have checked through installing Free fall data protection. it shows nothing.
I have a Vostro 3550 and it is not even a year old. Last night I was typing an email and all of a sudden the screen turned black and was all static. This morning I was having difficulty turning it on but saw the boot screen and hit Enter to Boot normally. Then it went static again. I have tried turning it on with and without the power cord plugged in. I no longer can get it to even load to the boot screen.
i recently installed windows 8 pro on my dell vostro 3550 laptop. i was facing with overheating and battery drain issues. i read in dell forums that dell resolved battery drain issue in bios update and now my current bios version is A10. but problem is i saw in other dell thread that A11 has some flaw in it and not advisable to update and that too previously my bios update failed and dell replaced my Motherboard. so how can i overcome overheating and battery drain issues ?
I bought a Vostro 3550 almost one year ago. About two weeks ago, most times I turn on the laptop, some loud beeps play (probably some warning beeps), but now, those beeps still make their presence, in lower intensity, during the usage of the machine. It is really irritating. I do not have a clue about what to look for or what it can be.
Because of a virus, I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have gotten everything else working except the fingerprint reader.I have installed the Validity Fingerprint Reader driver from the Dell Support site. The fingerprint reader shows up in the Device Manager. However, the Biometric Devices applet doesn't appear in the Control Panel.
I tried letting Windows update detect the fingerprint reader. It installed a driver for a Synaptics device. This was enough to get the Biometric Devices applet to appear in the Control Panel. However, when I tried to configure the fingerprint reader, I got an error saying no fingerprint management software was installed. I have seen lots of posts online directing me to validityinc.com for drivers or the DigitalPersona software, but Validity Inc. seems to have gone out of business. The DigitalPersona software is available on the Dell Support site for my service tag.
I have even tried installing the Windows 8 Validity Sensor Driver for my laptop, but though it successfully installs, it produces the same results.
after reinstall, about 3 weeks ago when i played game i get my CPU and Mainboard to 90C. In 2 minutes, my computer shut down, i tried to start computer by power button, but it shut down in 1 sec... just flashing. After 1 minute i started computer..I upgraded BIOS, install recommended drivers also i have cooling pad which i using on HDDs.
OS: Windows 8 x64..I think it's HDD or Mainboard overheating or maybe CPU, because it has 85C too.
New 2nd generation vostro 3550 laptop fingerprint reader driver software is available in dell online but there is no application software for fingerprint reader without any application how will I use it?
My computer is about a year old. When I turn it on, it will Go to the home screen & then it will go to a blue screen with a message that says a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information: STOP: 0x0000007E .How can I fix this so I can get back on to use my computer?
My computer (acer P653-V) is starting itself after shutting it down. Not right away - it takes some random time - sometime hours. In BIOS WAKE ON LAN is disabled. OS is windows 7 and at network adapter configuration - wake on magic packet and all of that is disabled.
Don't understand how is it possible? It is getting little bit creepy and disruptive already.
I bought a sony vaio laptop a little over 2 years ago. I never had a problem untill about 4 monthes ago. I got the "blue screen of death". It said something about the BIOS but would never stay on long enough for me to totaly read it. I went to Best Buy and asked if they had any ideas.
The guy said to contact Sony and get a recovery disk, so i did. I ran the cd but half way through it I got another blue screen that read:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time youve seen this stop error screen, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate disk space .....
I have an Aspire M5-581T. In March of 2014, the battery suddenly stopped working. It would not charge, the unit would not boot from the battery, and if I unplugged the computer from the AC outlet it shut down completely.

I have a problem with my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC, model 15-e055st, which I purchased two months ago with Windows 8 pre-installed. I susequently upgraded the operating system to Windows 8.1 and all seemed to work OK. I then used the HP Support Assistant to do some important updates, which included the BIOS and other software. Following the HP update the computer would not Shut Down or Sleep, but Restart worked OK. When I attempt to Shut Down or Sleep, the screen goes black but the power light and the wifi light on the keyboard remain on and the fan is still operating. The machine will not recover from this situation without me first doing a hard reset by keeping the power button pressed for about five seconds.
I trıed restoring the software to the condition prior to the HP update but the problem still existed. Two days ago I refreshed the computer, which rolled the operating system back from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.0 but the Shut Down/Sleep problem is still there.
I have a dv9000(dv9316ea) and i downgrade bios from F.26 to F.16 because overheating problems. After i downgrade i turnt on and after the windows xp screen appert it shut down. I try reinstal Windows but when windows start to install it shut down.
i bought a pavilion G6-2230sa with windows 8 last week It has downloaded automatically the latest updates today and is hanging at 13% every time Message - Configuring windows updates - 13% complete - do not turn off your computer It's been doing this for hours to day and occasionally restarts and starts all over again. How do i get it to complete or stop trying?
I have a HP Envy TouchSmart 15t-j000 and I want to enter bios. When I restart the computer just the HP logo appears. I've tried to press ESC, F1 - F12, insert, delete, home, end... Nothing works. Do you know how I can do this?
