HP/Compaq :: Every Time I Shut Down My Pc It Restarts Itself Like 5 Seconds After It Turns Off

Jul 9, 2009

For some reason every time I shut down my pc it restarts itself like 5 seconds after it turns off. I looked it up and someone said try unplugging the Ethernet cable. So I did and when I unplug when I shut it down it doesn't restart itself but only when I leave the Ethernet cable in it. Why is that? Also down on my currently connected icon by the clock why does it show that i'm connected to two networks? I had xp pro before and it only showed me connected to one network but on this new computer it shows me connected to two networks. Network 2 and Network 3, is that normal?

Acer :: Travelmate 5520 Turns On & Off Every Few Seconds

Apr 12, 2009

Acer ASPIRE 5520 Model ICW50. When I press the power button the light comes on and the fan spins but it shuts down every few seconds and repeats this action continuously. I have narrowed it down to a faulty motherboard. Has anyone been able to isolate the cause of this problem to a component or components on the motherboard?

Dell XPS 15 :: Fan Turns On And Off All The Time

Apr 22, 2013

I'm currently using XPS 15 with i7-2720QM and Geforce 540GT. Everything is fine with it EXCEPT this damn fan that turns on and off all the time and Dell's support gives a damn on that. They blame faulty Geforce and they say that nothing can be done about this...

Are there any laptops that don't have this issue and are very, very quiet in addition (maybe like no fan at all?).

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 :: Touchscreen Freezes For 3-10 Seconds At A Time Intermittently

Sep 27, 2014

I just received my Inspiron 15 5547 computer 2 days ago and one thing I noticed is that intermittently the touchscreen freezes for 3-10 seconds at a time, when this happens the computer is not frozen, I can still move the cursor with the touch pad or with a Bluetooth mouse.

I have contacted tech support and they advised to give it a few days to see if it continues to happen and confirm that the computer in fact does not freeze. I am wondering if this is normal for this model? Or if this is an actual hardware issue with my computer.

I also am wondering about getting a stylus to use on the screen for drawing. If I get one like the Adonit Jot or one like used for a Samsung Galaxy Note III would that work? Would it cause any damage to the screen?

Dell Vostro 1540 :: Turns On Same Time Every Day

Apr 21, 2013

My Dell Vostro 1540 , which I turn off every night - NOT standby or hibernate -- boots up at exactly 14:10pm every day.

If the power supply is not connected it doesn't --- that is until I plug the power supply in at anytime past 14:10pm then it boots up without touching the power button.

The bios is current - looks very basic - and there are no timers or wake up commands set anywhere I can see.

In fact I can't see ANY settings that can be altered by "time".

I have restored factory bios defaults with same result. Is there access to a hidden menu for power settings in the bios somewhere.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Lights Turn On For 2 Seconds, And It Shuts Right Off

Nov 11, 2009

I have a HP DV6000 Laptop. Im aware of the problems these models have. But this one I have not yet heard of. When I attempt to power it on, the lights turn on for 2 seconds, and it shuts right off. Its not like the Video card issue everyone speaks of. I have extensive technical background, and I have tried taking everything out, and trying each part one by one. I have tried swapping the power button ribbons, I have tried removing the bios battery. I guess im wondering if anyone else has ever been able to figure out whats going wrong with this setup? copuld it be a lack of contact between heat sync and CPU? please give me whatever input you can. I would like to not have to spring for a new Mobo. I can solder, and I am thinking of trying to heat the soldering points with a heat gun maybe. I dont know if thats the problem tho. and also, when the AC adaptor is plugged in, the blue LED surrounding it is on.

I also tried all this (of course)

1. Remove battery.
2. Remove AC power.
3. Remove and reseat your RAM modules.
4. Replace your RAM modules.
5. Hold down your power button for 1 minute.
6. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on
remove the small bios cmos battery for 15min and then put it back in

HP/Compaq :: Shut Down During Vista Clean Installation

Aug 27, 2009

I have a HP Dv2700 Cto Notebook with the following specifications

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1 Ghz,
3 GB RAM,
250Gb Harddisk,
GeForce 8400 Graphics Card
OS - Windows Vista Home Premium

I had followed the Steps in notebookreview.com for "Clean install of Windows Vista" and installed Vista on my Laptop 6 months back and it worked perfectly fine.

Last week, i started facing issues with Vista and the system would automatically Hibernate.

The screen would go blank automatically even while its been used.

So, i decided to clean install Vista again.

I ran the Vista setup CD and using the Vista partition utility, formatted the Primary Parition c: (i have 3 paritions).

I started the setup and after copying 66% of the files. The system automatically shut itself down.

I Had to re-start the setup.

When i restarted the setup, the setup doesnt even start copying files. it shuts down during the initializing setup screen............

HP/Compaq :: Won't Shut Down Unless Leave Screen Open Dv5

Feb 9, 2009

dv5 will not shut down when start>shut down>shut down is selected if screen is closed before entire shutdown sequence is completed, if screen is left open, shut down does complete, dv5 is running Vista Home Premium x64

On my other notebooks running XP, as soon as shut down is initiated I can close the screens and the notebooks complete the shut down and turn off while the screen is closed.

Is shut down hanging? Is it this way on all Vista notebooks?

HP/Compaq :: DM3 Excessive Battery Drain When Shut Down

Dec 11, 2009

I last used my DM3 about 2 1/2 weeks ago. When I shut it down the battery was at 100%. When I powered it up today, I had only 58% battery charge. This drain seemed excessive to me so I called HP and they seem to have agreed with me as they are sending me a new battery for free under warranty.

Anyone else notice excessive battery drain when the unit is shut down?

I have an HP G60-247cl Laptop that will turn on, and the fan is running. However, the screen is blank and there seems to be no response from the keyboard or mouse, and an external monitor will not work either.

If it is the switch, where is it located, and how much trouble is it to get to?

HP 14-d004tx OS/Software :: Takes A Long Time To Start Every Time Turned It On

Jul 17, 2014

It really annoys me that my new laptop, (Just a week old) when turned on takes a very long time before it starts. After the HP logo, it will show a blank page where my cursor can be moved, then it will stay a very a long time so I end up shutting it down then turning on again and again until it finally starts up.  This really takes a lot of my time specially I use my laptop for work.

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 16Touch Buttons Faulty- Adjusts Volume/bass And Turns Off Wireless Randomly

Jun 10, 2009

if anyone has had the same problem as me with the HP HDX 16. Randomly, even as I am typing here, the volume bar (with treble, bass etc) will appear on screen and will increase/reduce very quickly as if im pushing down on the touch buttons, this stops me being able to type, sometimes crashing the computer.

At the same time, this fault also occurs for the wireless LAN button to the far right, which will randomly disable (turn red) as if i'd touched it, sometimes causing the desktop to crash but more importantly causing me to lose connection and have to reconnect on a frequent basis.

I've had the notebook for over 6 months, and while i did have this occur on very rare occasions, since a couple days ago it has increased to a point where it happens all the time, including after a restart. I have tried searching through google to see if the problem is known, and i have seen a similar account on a customer review website. I have used HP health check and followed the updates supplied including that for the touch smart buttons and a BIOS flash.

Dell :: Hard Drive Clicks From Time To Time

Jan 22, 2009

My laptop is an inspiron 1520, about a year old now. Ever since I've had it, the hard disk drive has been making a loud, random click from time to time. Sometimes, it will click twice in the space of two minutes, sometimes it will click only once in two or three days.

Typically it's simply a loud snapping sound, like if you get a pencil and snap it against a wooden desk. It doesn't make any other sounds besides the usual hard drive sounds.

For about a quarter of a second, the system pauses. I think it's related to heat, as it happens most often while playing a graphic-intensive game.

Dell :: When I Do Hibernate => Restarts

Aug 8, 2009

First of all i want to say i have a dell xps 1530, Vista.
Recentrly ive reinstalled vista and now i have something strange going on.

When i got to start (i dont use button) and click on hibernate, notebook save data and when he is about to shut down, it just starts all over, the data doesnt go loss, so it starts the same as i did leave it in hibernate.

The strange thing is that, when i after this try to shut down it restarts again, so the only thing left to do for me to push the button so it just manualy shuts down.

One more thing, when i start again, and i direcly try to hibernate or shut down then it does his job, everything happens as it should be.

Apple :: Ibook G4 Freezing Up & Asking For Restarts

Mar 7, 2010

I'm having issues with my Ibook G4. I'll start it, it'll run fine for a few minutes, and then freeze up to where no matter what I do, nothing happens, and then I restart it only to have the same thing happen again. I'm thinking it's a software issue, cause when I ran the hardware test, no issues showed up.

Dell :: Fn + Z Combination Somehow Stops And Restarts The Fans

Jun 27, 2008

I don't know if this is something I did or that came part of the bios in the m1710, but I have the A03 bios and I had just installed and uninstalled I8kfangui , then, after I had rebooted and tried to clean out as much as I could, I was pretty exhausted and laid my head on the keyboard. I noticed the fans stopped then came back on. I did this a couple times before figuring out that this fn + z combination somehow stops and restarts the fans, even at gaming temps. sooooo, I'm wondering, is this by chance screwing up my normal fan control, my temps, etc? Did I do something to cause this? Is it normal? or did I8kfangui do it, and why can't I get rid of it.

Another note, it doesn't work right when I boot up, only after windows is running for a couple minutes.

Sony :: Vista Restarts On First Cold Boot

I disabled the automatic restart option in vista and the same thing happens. However, once it's done the initial restart everything works normally and therefore i dont think it has anything to do with over-heating. I used to have windows xp pro sp3 and this did not happen

Dell Inspiron 17 N7110 :: Keeps Turning Off And Restarts Itself

Mar 6, 2013

My Dell Inspiron 17 N7110 Keeps shutting itself down, recycling its system (I am sure I am using the wrong terminology).  It will get to the dell logo screen and then go blank and restart itself.  I spoke with someone at Techzilla who said that this has been happening to other people with this model.  I removed the battery, tried hitting the F8, F11, F2 and F12 buttons.  When I hit the F12 button the screen went to a black screen with a blinking curser in the upper right hand corner.  This screen lasted about a second or two before it shuts down again and starts to recycle again.  I was told that it's a software problem (that I downloaded a virus) but if others are having the same problem then I think it's a dell model issue not a software issue.

Lenovo Yoga 13 Flex :: Low Memory Warnings And Random Restarts

Jan 6, 2014

I have had my Yoga 13 for a couple of months now (I bought it refurbished from the Lenovo Outlet).  It is running Windows 8.1, with 4gb of ram.
 
Since I upgraded to Windows 8.1, which is practically the entire time that I have had the system, I have been getting low memory warnings and software crashes related to this.  When getting these warnings and crashes I am usually running IE (maybe 4 - 5 tabs) and 2-3 pdfs in Adobe Reader.  It only has 4gb of ram, but in my mind, this cannot overload the memory on this system!
 
In fact, I just got the low memory message now ("Your computer is low on memory.  Save your files and close these programs: Internet Explorer") and I am only running IE (4 tabs) in the foreground.  I don't think that this is an IE issue, because this problem is even worse, when I am using Chrome.  That is what prompte me to switch to IE.
 
When I check in task manager right now, it says that I am using 81% of memory. IE is using 300mb (which seems very excessive) and there are other programs running in the background - none are using more than 50mb and most are using less than 20mb.
 
The other part of this problem is that when I am working normally (again with a few IE tabs open and a few pdfs open), the system randomly restarts itself, with no error message or anything.  All of a sudden, the screen just shows the login screen and Windows starts as if nothing happened.

HP Pavilion 15 OS/Software :: SleekBook Won't Display Boot Menu With USB - Restarts Continuously

Sep 24, 2013

I have an HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 (Model: 15-b022es) in which i'm tryig to install Linux. Since the day I bought it, I've been unable to boot anything directly through USB. I've searched a lot on this topic, and the usual causes are Boot devices order, Secure boot or Legacy Support options. That is certainly not the case, since I have tried all possible combinations. In fact, the exact symptoms that my laptop exhibits aren't described anywhere I've found. This being:
 
If I insert an USB drive in any port of the laptop, it renders the computer completely unable to boot. It's not that it freezes, it restarts again and again, but never goes beyound a black screen and making some HDD sounds (usual boot up sounds, nothing weird). Within this state, with the USB still inserted, I can access the BIOS configuration by pressing F10, but can not access boot devices menu (usually available at F9), because pressing F9 will just cause a new reboot.
 
In the past I accessed the boot menu by not inserting any USB and then pressing F9, then I entered the USB, entered and left some random folder to force refresh the display (and so show the USB), and finally selected my USB. This is a bit hacky, and I can no longer apply this solution, since my HDD is completely erased now and there is no folder I can enter to refresh the screen and display the usb drive.
 
Now the thing is: I can't manage to install any operating system back into my laptop if I can't boot from USB, so how can I do that? Right now all I get are continuous resets of the machine before even getting to the boot menu. And what is the cause for all those reset?
