auto shutdown of windows

Q: auto shutdown of windows

I have two computers both running Win 98 one computer shuts all the way down but the other stops at a message that it is safe to shut down. How can I set it to shut down auto.?

Preferred Solution: auto shutdown of windows

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: auto shutdown of windows

There are several bugs in windows that can cause that. MS even has a few patches for it. Sometimes a peice of HW is not telling the OS it's done, example, a CD in a CDROM.

Also, some programs can hang at shutdown, like Norten or McAffee.

Only thing constant, when the HD is finished, it's OK to shut down.

My computer has been like this for the past months, every minute, every hour, every seconds. it reboots, shutdown, and hibernate automatically, and sometimes wait for around 5-10mins before it my pc turn on. I full scanned my computer but found nothing. Can someone help me?

A:auto reboot, auto shutdown, auto hibernate

You need to check Control Panel, Power Options. (screenshot)

Note the tabs. In this dialog you set your options and they are set for the Power Scheme shown. In Laptops, there are usually 2 schemes listed, one for AC powered and a separate for Battery powered.

Desktop OR AC powered Laptop, the only thing you MAY want to turn off is your Monitor.

Most of the time, this is actually malware.

That's a very broad piece of information. So you are saying sometimes
you get hours out of your PC before it shutsdown/hibernates?

My windows shutdown automatically. The problem appeared just after I connected iPod but it has now become common. Now my windows shutdown even if the iPod is not connected. I even reinstalled my Windows 7 but the problem not solved. It proves that it is not a software problem, it should be hardware problem. What can be reasons? Overheating? PSU?

PS: It generally shutdown when I play any game or I install any software. It shutdown without giving any message, it doesn't restart it just shutdown.

I am quite annoyed of this problem as I can't save any document and all the data is lost when system shutdowns. So please help, I will be very thankful. Thanks in advance

A:Windows Auto Shutdown - Help

This is probably because of the CPU overheating, as you mentioned it's when you're playing a game or installing software, both which takes quite alot.

I'd check the heat on your computer, on everything from CPU to the motherboard.
If the CPU is 55C>, get some cooling paste.

I'm facing a serious problem here. while i was using my com, my com will suddenly shut down without any warning. Izit my com over heat or insufficient RAM? My RAM is 512.

A:Windows Auto Shutdown Without Warning.

I don't know that a computer would shut down from insuffecient RAM. Defective RAM perhaps. But let's come back to that issue later, as there are more probable causes to your issue.Overheating? Yes, sure could be. One clue that you often get (but not always) is the computer will slow down just as it is overheating, and just before it shuts down.You would do well to follow the advice in the following tutorial: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/cleaning-the-inside-of-your-pc/Also please tell us if you have overclocked your CPU.Usually when XP automatically reboots it is because Windows recieved an error. We need to make a change to a setting on your computer so we can find out exactly what the error is.Go to:Start > right click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery Settings and uncheck Automatically Restart. Now when Windows receives an error it will show you a blue screen.Now when you receive a blue screen the computer will pause on it and you will have to reboot manually.The 'Blue Screen of Death' (or BSOD) is refered to by Microsoft as a Stop Message. They can occur for many reasons. In order to diagnose it's cause we need as much info as you can give about the stop message. Please write it down and post it back here the next time it happens. In particular, it helps to have the somewhat cryptic series of numbers about half way down the blue screen that have this sort of format:0x0000008E (Followed by ... Read more

My problem: when I'm on my computer for a while or doing anything CPU intensive the screen fades, and the shutdown menu pops up and begins the process of shutting its self down. Whenever I turn it back on, the shutdown only happens faster. I've been told to try and access my bios but for some reason my keyboard turns itself off whenever I get to it. I assumed it was overheating of the processor so I took off the fan/heatsink and reaplied thermal paste but it hasn't helped at all. I also ordered a new fan/heatsink it was a scythe big shuriken but of course the fan had to be broken and I had to send it back. Any other ideas?

My specs:

When i shutdown windows Skype will not automatically close, giving me the error in the picture below. I have to manually right click on the Skype icon in the system tray and quit it, then shutdown windows again. It's a hassle.

I'm using the Skype desktop app, on a desktop pc, in desktop mode.

Just a thought - Skype is now built into the latest version of W10 so it is possible you will not need the Skype Desktop app. By the way I could not see the image you posted.

I've been fighting random auto restarts/dirty restarts for days. I finally reinstalled Win10 over itself and that seemed to fix it for some hours but it came back. It's a 10 upgrade over a 7 pro that's loaded with a lot of apps across two hard drives. I've got an Asus Z87M-plus mobo and the problem occurs with the new Asus Win10 drivers, the MS default Win10 drivers and the old Win7 drivers. I removed the apps installed over 3 days leading up to the start of this with no success. sfc /scannow says it found problems but fixed them on the 2nd install. It found no corruption on the 1st install. I did break the 2nd install with a bungled Bitdefender install but daelt with that with a full uninstall with their special tool and then sfc fixed the bad files. When it was broken, I could not bring up Control Panel.

I've tried a safe boot, but since I can only run Chrome, it's hard to test it much, but it is stable in safe mode-I think. it tends to crash when I'm typing on a website in Chrome (like if I was on Win10 as I type this) or in Word but I'm in Win7. But it will crash just sitting there too with no typing.

Now here's the question. Could this be my power supply? On at least two occasions it shut down at the split second the central A/C kicked in. May have happened more times and I just did not notice it. The problem is I'm in Win7 now and it's solid. Win 7 never had this problem, not ever. Seems improbably that a new OS w... Read more

Yeah.... First turn on the windows Internet Connection Firewall. start->controlpanel->internet connections. Right click on the connection for your ethernet card, and select properties. Click on the advanced tab. Put a check in the box for "use the internet firewall".

Now update windows. Most of the things that cause this have been fixed by various windows patches/hotfixes.

After a nite of electrical interference, this Laptop (my other laptops are running fine) started shutting down after 1 to 4 minutes, sometimes it never made it through the boot.

So I got a new PC a couple of weeks ago with Windows Vista as the operating system but ever since I've been using Vista, it keeps automatically shutting down. I go to sleep and leave my PC on because I'm downloading something but it always shuts down and I have no idea why that happens, are there settings I can tweak or something? Or is it an error or the computer has been over heated? Maybe it's because I left it idle for too long, just PLEASE, tell me how to keep it on..
Thank you.

A:Why does my PC always auto-shutdown?

It's probably going into standby or hibernate as part of the power saving options. I had this issue when I had torrents downloading and needed the machine to be permanently on.

Go into control panel, and find the Power option. It may also be found in control panel > display > screensaver > power on XP (I can't remember if they moved it for vista).

That's the most likely. Otherwise, yes your computer would shutdown if it was overheating in order to prevent it from frying. That's very unlikely though unless your machine has the fans blocked or not running.

We bought new Gateway ZX4000 Windows 7 Premium 64-Bit for our grandson's birthday. We are having so many complications with Win7.
We were using the computer and then we went downstairs to eat and when we came back, the computer was turned OFF. Is this something new with this desktop (All-In-One)? Does it turn off by itself? We noticed the Hibernate mode was turned OFF (marked - Never).
Is there any way to stop this? I believe this All-In-One (touch screen, etc.) is configured like a laptop.

A:Auto shutdown

Was it off or in standby?

If no settings for a scheduled shut-off are active, I'd say that Windows 7 is not your problem--the computer is.

What other sorts of "problems" have you had? The machine may shut down by itself if it overheated.

You shouldn't have problems with a new machine. As painful as it may be to the grandson, get your money's worth and make them make it work right.

Good Morning Cliffy, that problem can be caused by an overheating processor or a memory error amongst other things. (lots of other things)

A good starting place is to obtain and run Everest Home, go to Computer > Sensors page during the kind of period where this problem happens or during some system stressing activity, cut and paste the sensors page Voltage and temp info. (back here)

A second thing you can do is obtain Memtest86, make a bootable media with it and run it for several hours. Accept no errors.

If neither of these ustilities gives a clue you are still in front because you have tested those items.

Cheers, qldit.

hi guys, first post here and here's the problem.

I got a laptop which is basically two months old. And yesterday while I was having a meeting, the laptop shut itself down automatically after about 15 minutes. Then I head to library and switch it on, it works perfectly fine for about an hour until it shuts down again. Both cases happened under air-conditioned environment.

I sent it to the computer shop to have it checked and they told me that they switched it on for the whole day without experiencing any auto shut down.

And today, I brought it back and was using it for about two hours then the screen flickered one time.

GPU temperature was about 35 degree celcius. Then it raised up to 55-65 in about three hours.

May I know what's the problem I'm experiencing here?

A:Laptop auto shutdown

It sounds like the video card either has a defect or has a problem with cooling. If you look through the system logs it may give a hint if that is what causes all the shutdowns.

If you download NirLauncher it has several log viewers including event logs. Easiest way to find stuff is click on All Utilities and do a Control f search for "crash."

It is free and handy to have in any case.

A:Auto shutdown and startup

Hi wpickett,

On some computers there is an option in the BIOS to start computer and to shutdown you can always schedule shutdown.exe to run at a specific time.

Task Scheduler - Create New Task

I actually have a batch file with the following code in and i have just got Windows task schedule to run it.

shutdown -s -t 00
Just paste the above code into a text document and save the file as .bat
Note - Change the file type to All Types:

I already scanned my laptop from viruses and malware I've used avg, avast, spybot, malwarebytes but I found nothing. also I am having this weird issue when I am playing this game heroes of newrth my laptop doesn't shutdown it is very weird, also my laptop doesn't shutdown when I let the monitor off by doing nothing. additional to this, almost all of the time when I turn it on it suddenly turn off again for no reason. i think its not over heating

A:laptop auto shutdown

define 'random'......I'd also download SIW from http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.php (free link is on the bottom of the page) and install that. That will show some temps.

Also, start > run > eventvwr.msc > enter > that will open your event log. Right click and empty both the application and system folders (they show up like explorer panes) and the next time it crashes, let us know. We'll tell you how to get the data off.

Finally, is it blue screening when it crashes, or just powering off?

But as of recently, a command prompt saying "shutdown -t 00 -s -f" pops up, and shuts down all my startup programs, and shuts down my comp.its constantly happens, and now, I have to click it shut fast enough to keep my comp from shutting down. What should I do?
