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?
I have had this laptop for 7 months now, but since about 4 weeks ago when i click on shutdown i realised that it looked like it was shutting down... and 30 seconds later would fire up again.¬† At first i thought it was me clicking the wrong button, but it has happened daily now.¬† Only way to shut it down is my removing the power cable and then shutting down.
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?
I recently bought a Lenovo G50-70 and the only main issue i'm facing is that it won't shut down. When I press shut down, the shutting down icon shows up and then the screen turns off but the laptop remains on¬† (the lights below the touchpad remain on and i can still hear the fans running)...
I decided once to leave it like this and see if it'll shut down later. I came back to find it still on and it was hot and the fans were making more noise than they usually do.
To shut it down all i can do is forcefully shut it down by pressing the power button which i would like to avoid doing...
I have a HP ProBook 4530s, using Windows 7 64-bit OS, Intel Core i3-2310M CPU (2.10 GHz).My laptop is about 21 months old and I am facing some problems when puting my laptop into hibernate mode. Everything was fine for a long time - that is, when I put it in the hibernate mode it turned off and when I pressed the power on button it resumed. However, that isn't the case any longer.Now when I put it in the hibernate mode, it (usually) goes hibernating and after few seconds it turns back on (all by itself!). Sometimes it hibernates for 10 or 20 minutes (or even more) and then again, it turns back on all by itself!This problem just started occuring, I didn't install or update or do anything.
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?).
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?
Brand new G50-70: When using OS¬†from the SSD¬†or using OS from the SSD and doing things with a USB-drive, the empty internal DVD-drive making clicking sound and sometimes freezing SSD read/write operation for about 30 seconds but all the time freezing USB-storage read/write operation for about 30 seconds. ¬† When freezing there's always clicking. But when clicking there's not always freezing except when using USB-storage. ¬† OS is Win81-64. ¬† An example scenario: connect USB stick, open terminal, type diskpart, dvd-drive clicks and freezes opening of diskpart for about 30 seconds, then the same may or may not happen when entering commands like¬†clear the stick and¬†format the stick.
Why does my E1-521 laptop shut down every time? Regardless of what I select, sleep, hibernate, close lid, it still shuts down. That is not what power buttons are set up to do, seems to make no difference what those settings do. It may be a coincidence, but I think I started having problems when I turned on "OneDrive".. which I can't seem to turn off! Running Windows 8.1....
I updated my laptop from windows 8 (when sound worked fine) to windows 8.1 where it doesn't. If I go to the control panel and unistall the realtek drivers, then re-install them the sound works, that is until I switch off (yes I know - don't switch off then ... ¬† When the computer restarts there is no audio....again. the only way I have found to get it working is the uninstall - re-install of the drivers.
I have an Ideapad Y510P with 24G SSD and Windows 8.1.¬† I uninstalled the Express cache by a mistake. So I want to re-install it. Unfortunately, the install program told me that I need to reboot the system even I tried to reboot or shut down the system several time.
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
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?
I have a DV9000 and just yesterday it started where the screen will go black but I can see what is going on on the screen but it is extremely faint. When I close the lid for a few seconds and open it back up it the screen appears like normal but only for about twenty seconds and then returns to the black. If I hook it up to an external monitor and I can see what is going on.
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?
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 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 have a problem with my Compaq Presario CQ61-325ED. It won't boot. What I see is a black/blank screen, with the numlock and capslock lights blinking twice every couple of seconds. ¬† According to the blink codes, it seems the BIOS has been corrupted [URL] .... ¬†Sadly, no adequate solution is given on that page.Win + B ¬†or Fn + B at startup does nothing, pressing all the arrow keys gives me a continuous blinking pattern (edit: I can't seem to replicate this anymore...). I have also tried creating a bootable USB-stick with a BIOS update, but I don't think I have done it correctly, for it never gets activated¬†(the light on the USB never turns on).
Also, removing/resetting the RAMs or just one of the RAMs does not work. Neither does removing/resetting the CMOS battery. How to successfully create a bootable USB-stick with BIOS update for CQ61-325ED?
