Yoga 920 shut down and would not restart for 20 minutes

Q: Yoga 920 shut down and would not restart for 20 minutes

Recently on two occasions my Yoga 920 has shut down after I got up and was no longer using it. I was not on line and and the laptop should have entered sleep mode. Windows 10 pro. When I returned to the laptop, I could not restart it and on both occasions, the bottom felt extremely hot. Not so hot that I couldn't touch it but much hotter than I've ever felt it before. Certainly uncomfortablly hot if was sitting on your lap. After about 20 minutes it restarted and ran normally. It appears that some action is causing it to run and overheat. During the period when i could not restart it, I unplugged it from power and noticed that the small led on the power button was blinking. I called Lenovo support after the second incident and have scheduled to send it in for service. I ran Lenovo Companion software and checked for updates but it says everything is current. Just reporting in case anyone else has seen this. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Yoga 920 shut down and would not restart for 20 minutes

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.)


I recently started having problems when powering off my new 910 over the past 3 weeks.  When I power it off using the software, it takes 1-2 minutes before it fully powers down.  It is like something is running in the background.  Any help is appreciated. Eric

A:My Yoga 910 takes over 1-2 minutes to shut down.

Look in the event log and see if something is throwing an error message

My computer takes 5 minutes to shut down. I use windows XP. How can I fix/anylyze this problem?

A:5 minutes to shut down.

Hi dcap3, Welcome to TSF!

One suggestion....

You could download and try a nifty little program (freeware) called "Code Stuff Starter", as the more programs that are in the start up/close down, the slower the computer will be.

Code Stuff Starter (or Starter) is available from here. (Please click the coloured link.)

Give this a try and post back with how you fared.

Hi guys,

I have a PC with the following specs:

Intel E6600 Core2Duo 2.4 GHz Processor
Gigabyte 965P-DS3 s775 Motherboard
4GB DDR 2 Corsair RAM
Samsung DVD-RW
530W Hiper PSU
XFX Nvidia 7600GT 256MB Video Card

And when i try installing windows 7 about 3/4 of the way through the bar the PC just shuts down without warning. So to make sure it wasn't the windows CD i went into the bios and waited approx 2 minutes and the PC shut down again. What could the problem be?

About 2 weeks ago I began having some issues with IE 8 (version 8.0.6001.18702) The problems began with when I entered a search term in the default search bar (upper right) and with Google being the primary search provider. An apparent google standard search page would be displayed in the browser window, but when I clicked on any link on that page, I was taken to a different site. The sites were random, but primarily a site wanting wanting to sell something.

If I went directly to Google's URL and opened a search page, entered the same search term, the displayed links would take me to the actual linked site.

I ran Spybot S&D, McAfee AV scan, virus defs were up to date, as were system updates (Windows XP Pro). I also checked all add ons, and deleted search providers and re-install search providers.

Nothing made a difference. Shortly afterward, a new problem appeared. The IE8 browser would open, seem to function fine (other than the search bar issue) and then shut down for no reason after 1-2 minutes. When checking on "more information" about the problem, I could never find the "log" file that was supposed to have been created in one of the Temp files. The temp files naming appeared to change with each instance.

My next atempt to correct was to run Uniblue Regitry Booster. It found a multitude of problems, I allowed it to fix them, but the IE 8 problem remained. After the next time I ran Uniblue, a few problems were found (and "fixed") but n... Read more

My nice 200GB drive in my lappy barfed so I went back to the stocker w/ factory Vista install (about 5 mo old) and am trying to get it updated.

Pretty much been at it all afternoon.

One problem is that it hits the XML4 update and hangs there forever and ever.

Another problem is that shutdowns take forever. I've been sitting here 15 minutes now looking at '****ting down' and I'll probably get fed up with waiting for it and pull the battery.
I've always found Vista shutdowns to be 3-10x longer than XPs are, but this is getting ridiculous.

If it matters, lappy is a 5mo old HP 8510W.

A:Why does Vista take 10 minutes to shut down?

Best brace yourself. From what I see in your post, your only real way to get a temporary fix is to run your restore disk. It will put your laptop back to the way it was when you took it out of the box. Your old HD has been dormant for too long. Files have corupted. The HP files to be exact. Which brings me back to the *temporary" remark I made earlier. You should already be familiar with the lovely software HP loads in it's laptops. It falls on its face first chance it gets and cripples your PC.

Your stuck with a restore. A repair my bring it back to an extent but will not last.

To permanetly fix your issues, get a Microsoft Vista DVD and use the product key on the green sticker on the bottom of the PC. Install Vista clean without the HP garbage and Norton IS 60 day trial or the MS Office trial or any other trial they may want to put you through.

Install Vista(whatever version), Phone Activate(no there is no other way) intall AV( a real one not Norton) some spyware protection and head for windows update.

I have seen you situation roughly 1788 times and speaking as a MCSE A+ (and a few others) tech.

Its all you got.

Hi all,
I'm not sure why, but my Windows XP Pro is taking at least 2-3 minutes to shutdown. I haven't installed anything new lately. It just started doing this about 5 days ago. Looking a the event viewer, the last time I shut down, the 'WMIAdapter' caused an error. The time before that it was 'ODBC'. So I am somewhat confused. I hope someone understands what I'm talking about with the event viewer. I ran a hijackthis log, which is here:

A:Solved: Win XP Pro taking 2-3 minutes to shut down

I don't see any problems in the scanlog.

There are a number of things you can do to try to resolve the problem. One would be simply to try a System Restore to a date prior to the problem.

Start > run: msconfig > Launch System Restore.

These can be undone if not helpful.

Another is to examine the Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc) and look for errors in the Applications log 1517 or 1524.

If you see them, install this:


Still another is to try "clean boot" troubleshooting to isolate the problem:

Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page.

See this link for detailed information:


Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in &#8220;selective&... Read more

my internet started running very slow about 3 weeks ago. It also takes approximately 2 minutes for my computer to shut down. I am running Windows 7, 64bit, with 6 gb of ram. I ran malwarebytes and it did not detect anything. I cleaned my hard drive with the disc cleaner. I ran microsoft essentials and it did not detect anything. I recently purchased Norton antivirus and ran a complete scan and it found nothing. Every time I shut down the computer it takes exactly the same amount of time to shut down.

Hi everyone I am new to the forum and hope that someone can assist me with this very strange issue.
I have a Dell XPS 8700 Desktop, has 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, running Windows 8.1 which I had installed the day it came out..the PC I purchased in September 2013..for the past few weeks I have noticed how when I shut down the pc that it can take up to 4 minutes to shut down, the monitor will go black but the power button the tower will remain white til it turns off, it used to turn off in a matter of seconds, now its minutes..same issue for restart, takes about 3 minutes to restart and no one from Dell can figure out what the problem is..all I had installed in December were updates from microsoft thats it, other than that nothing new has been installed. Yesterday I got a notification from Dell on my PC notifying me that I should update my BIOS which was A4 to A6 which I did and still the same issue..talked to five technicians and no one can figure it out, been told maybe its software related and I need to reformat the hard drive, I feel that would be a waste of time, if there was an actual cause I would do it, but to format my hard drive with no known cause of this problem would be stupid, it would just happen again. So if anyone out there knows what could be causing this and what I have to do to fix it please let me know
Thank you and I hope this is the correct forum thread to ask questions like this

I am trying to create a kiosk like experience with a win 10 touchscreen PC, where after X# of minutes, it will close and restart Chrome, so that any open tabs will close, and Chrome will open to the default home page. So the effect would be a screensaver starts after X minutes, and in the background Chrome restarts and opens the default page which is a menu screen. When someone touches the screen, the default home screen in Chrome would be revealed.

I looked into Task Scheduler, which is new to me, but I did not see anyway to close or restart an application. Plus under events I am not seeing the idle event as an action that can trigger new actions.

I am open to using 3rd programs, or other work-arounds. Any ideas on how to do this?

My computer (running XP) has started to hang whenever I reboot it.

This problem seemed to start after I tried to create a home network (the same thing is happening on my laptop when I added it to the home network)...

The problem that is occurring is that whenever I restart my computer, it goes through boot up, Windows starts up, my wallpaper appears, and then it hangs for about 20 minutes before any icons or the Start task bar shows up... After about 20 minutes, everything then seems to run fine. This hasn't been a major annoyance because I usually just put the computer in sleep mode but it's starting to grate on my nerves now...

I'm hoping someone out there will be able to help before I just re-install the entire OS (I figure that's taking the sledgehammer approach though...).

A:Slow computer restart (like 10-15 minutes)

You can do this yourself by Googling each of these words. That's how I do it.

But first, go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall everything you know you don't need, like that Google Toolbar thing. Crapware and useless.

If you Google something and it comes back with no substantive hits, then you start looking at is as potential malware, and start doing some searches of your HD and registry.

If it's and executable launching from a Temporary folder, or the folder is in an odd place, it's probably malware.

Anyways, that's the general idea.

jusched is java's updater.

Uninstall java completely and reboot. Then download and install the latest Java. Then go into configurations for Java and turn off all automatic functions including updating. You don't HAVE to have the latest & greatest version of Java, it's just not that important of a program. Too many of the software companies have an over-inflated sense of their software's importance (like GOOGLE) and act as if you can't possibly survive unless their updater is running in the background constantly.

Turn off Yahoo Messenger's Autostart. That will speed up boot times.

I'd get rid of Quick Time completely and install Windows Media Classic bundled in the K-Lite Codec pack.

My computer takes 3 minutes to shut down. Also, it occasionally has problems where the audio stutters, and the only way I can fix this is by restarting. Unfortunately, it takes the computer 3 minutes to shut down, and probably a little over 1 minute to start. A few weeks ago, it took 15 seconds to shut down, and about 6 seconds to start up. This is a Windows 8.1 computer. I am not sure if the audio problem is the computer, or the speakers/headphones. I do think it is the computer, though.
Anybody have any ideas on how I can fix this?

Here's the list, hope it helps..

i just found out about this site last night and the members here seem very knowledgable and willing to help, so i thought id give it a shot.

The problem
the computer takes around two minutes before it will P.O.S.T., and the first few seconds after i power it on, the monitor displays an image that says the monitor isnt connected to the computer, again this goes away after a few seconds. once the computer gets to windows, it works fine but then eventually its almost like explorer stops functioning - for example, i will open the C: hard drive from my computer and the the box is empty, not listing any files. the start bar / windows navigator pane at the bottom stops working / responding. i will be able to alt tab to switch to different applications but i wont be able to use the start bar at the bottom to switch. sometimes programs wont even start up when i double click them. so after this happens i usually decide to put in some emo music and then cut my wrists for a few minutes until i try to reboot the computer, or shut it down, but of course that will just hang at the screen where it says "windows is shutting down..." and wont progress from there. i end up hitting the reset button on the tower to force a reboot, and then go thru the whole 2 minute to post ordeal again. however, the computer usually runs great, until something triggers the downfall, im not sure what. i dont think its a heat problem, the motherboard temp is always around 23 C, cpu a...

HELP my laptop is running slower than slow and takes 20+ minutes to restart. I'm running xp home on a compaq with an amd processor; Norton 360 v4. I've spent too much money on a useless registry cleaner. I've un-installed norton, no help, downloaded spybot and scanned system found nothing. When I try to do a repair on installation my pc gets to a point and shuts off. When I reboot and go to the set-up after a short time in set-up the computer shuts off? Anybody have any advice!!


A:Laptop very slowww takes 25 minutes to restart

Restart being when the computer is on and you go to start and restart the computer? It takes 25+ minutes before windows log off and does a restart

When I restart my computer, it boots up relatively fast but when the desktop appears, the disk continues to work hard. When I open the task manager I see avast is working but I also see several Windows tasks that do their work as well until everything cools off.

Is there a tool that can monitor the processes that are running right after booting and then shows what is working so a normal person can understand?

I apologize if there is already a solution to this issue that I missed. I know very little about computers and was only more confused reading through past posts. My computer goes to bsod every 30 minutes or so after every restart. The bsod simply says "system_service_exception". It doesn't have any error numbers following it.

I've attached the .zip file from the sf debug tool.

Thanks in advance to any help.

A:Marty's Computer Takes 15 Minutes To Restart In Xp

Hello marty97202 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.I do see some items that might be causing performance issues. What can you tell me about McAfee and Norton? I see parts of each installed but neither one is installed completely and neither one is actively protecting the computer. Were each of these installed at one time and then uninstalled? If so, it doesn't appear that they wanted to go quietly lol.There are tools which both McAfee and Symantec provide to assist in removing their products. I would suggest posting in the Anti-Virus forum here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/25/antivirus-firewall-and-privacy-products-and-protection-methods/ and they will be able to assist with removing both of those applications.Then I would recommend getting a running anti-virus installed.

Right now the shutdown took about almost 5 minutes before turn off or restart mu desktop too. That's a little too long to wait.

Anyway what I have done with this last evening when uninstalling the program and I couldn't wait too long after hit the task manager. The task manager on the desktop screen become grey like faded and I couldn't wait for too respond. So I hit the main button of the computer to turn it off. I would say that I have done with this 10 times last evening. One of my family member told me that I SHOULD have wait till the task manager respond then hit the program to close not turn off the computer abruptly. Maybe that is why the computer take time to turn off with shutdown or restart?

Is there a way to fix to make shutdown or restart more quickly as possible.

Thank you,


A:Windows 7 shutdown or restart take too long about almost 5 minutes

When did this start? If it just started try and think what changed on your PC when you started to have the problem. If it has not been happening too long, try a System Restore to a date before your problem started. Go to this link to guide you through the process.

You've made an edit saying you fixed something related to your Graphics Card. I don't know if the NFO is too old to display that it's been fixed, but at least it showed failure at the VxD loader. This can indicate a bad return address between the operation system and the driver (or software).If you fixed it, it'll be gone in the Device Manager

The issues I currently face are incapacitating my workflow since I'm building a business and brand off of this very laptop. I'm a music producer and I'm looking into crossing into music engineering and with this HP Beats Special Edition '15 laptop I'm experiencing issues that have plagued my experience upon the first time usage of the laptop. The major issue I face is battery life and random shutdowns. I face under 45 minutes of battery life with a full battery with usage consisting of only Google Chrome and my DAW, no gaming included. This forces me to spend inconsiderable amounts of time stressing over potentially losing projects while being attached or near the charger cable during 99% of the laptops usage. I also experience random shutdowns while literally leaving the computer idle for around 5 minutes sometimes. Around Nov. 21st I had sent the laptop in for support and the motherboard was replaced, yet the computer still performs in the same horrendous capacity it had before. Another issue I've been facing is the Volume Keys becoming unresponsive. Occasionally when I try to lower or increase the volume the keys become stagnant, lagging to increase or decrease volume and once it does increase or decrease it either boost to 100 volume and I cannot turn it down for about 30 secs or if the volume decreases, it mutes and I cannot unmute or the volume consistently fluctuates and I lose complete control. I've been trying to contact HP for months via live chat but I cannot find ... Read more

Thanks in advance for your time and effort.
I've been dealing with this issue for several days now. Currently I am using my old computer to communicate to this forum.
I turn on my computer and choose the option to start windows normally (after an "unexpected shut down"). I am able to log on and gain access to my user account. I have limited arbitrary programs on startup to allow me additional time to run diagnostics and successfully DL Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software before my system shut(s) down. I cannot successfully complete a full scan though b/c my system shuts off. A brief look at a Quick Scan on Malwarebytes has indicated that it detected 4 instances of Malware on my system but without it completing, I cannot quarrantine anything and my computer shuts off.
I cannot perform a full diagnostics scan either.

I haven't used my laptop for over a week, when I let my partners daughter try to log on to the internet it opened explorer, but then refuses to open many of the programs like adobe reader, distiller, MSN messenger etc... they take 10 - 15 mins to open then don't repond, these will then not shut down, and when ctrl-alt-delete is used to close them, they stay in the task bar and the machine takes almost an hour to close when using the start menu to shut it down, all was fine prior to this, and I ran the norton updates before letting her play on the net.

A:Adobe, Msn Messenger Won't Open And Now The Machine Takes 40 Minutes To Shut Down?

First thing to do is back up your data to removable media (CD, Floppy, etc). It may be infected, so be careful!

Then, if you can get an anti-virus and antispyware scan to run - do so.

Press Ctrl-Alt-Del (all at the same time), then click on the processes tab to see what's consuming all the CPU cycles. If there's anything (other than System Idle Process) that's got numbers above 5 or 10 (that's %) - right click on it and select "End Process".

Go to Start...Run...and type in "msconfig" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Check to see what's running at startup and disable those that you don't need.

Next, try to run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from the Run dialog (Start...Run...) It may prompt you for your XP installation disk, so please have it ready. If it does prompt you for the CD, please go to Windows Update immediately afterwards and have it check for updates.

My laptop, a Dell which is about fifteen months old, takes way too long to shut down. I'm not sure when this started - it used to shut down just fine. Originally I thought it was getting stuck, and I held down the power button after 10 minutes of 'Shutting down...' but if I leave it for half an hour it will turn itself off and then I won't get the 'Did not shut down properly' message when I turn it on again.

I tried turning off everything in msconfig, as well as rebooting into safe mode, but that didn't seem to make any difference. Any other ideas? I'm thinking of formatting the hard drive and starting again, but I'd love to avoid that if possible. Someone (not on this forum) told me to check Event Viewer, but I wasn't really sure how to interpret what I saw there.

Hi there, I've done a little bit of research but no-one's problem seems to exactly match mine, and none of the fixes listed have helped me so far.

I built this computer a couple of months ago, and every day on startup, it will boot fine and work fine for a few minutes, then things will start to deteriorate (chrome tabs crashing, discord freezing), and it will eventually BSOD after another few minutes. After I restart it everything works like a charm for the rest of that day.

I'm getting a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD with stop code 1a.

I've tried reseating the RAM stick in the DIMMs but to no avail.

I have had a couple of other BSODs in the same circumstances but with different messages and stop codes:

NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM (stop code: 24)
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (stop code: a)

However the vast majority have been: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (stop code: 1a), as you will see with the mini dumps.

Hardware and IO is as follows:

Gigabyle GA Z170 HD3
Intel i5 6600
Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 2133MHz CL13 2x8GB (ninja edit )
Gigabyte GTX1070 G1 Gaming
240GB EVO 850 Boot Drive (2 other mass storage drives)
FSP Group Hydro G 650W

Logitech G303
Logitech G310
Kingston Hyper X Cloud
AOC I2260Sw

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
