Soft Powerdown

Q: Soft Powerdown

Not a big issue but....

HP Vectra VLi8 running Win2K Pro. After shut down sequence displays "it's not safe to shut down...."

How can I configure it to autoshut? Went into BIOS to look for APM options but none found.

In Power Management section of Control Panel no appropriate option in evidence.

What gives?

Preferred Solution: Soft Powerdown

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: Soft Powerdown

I went to HP and did a dozen or more searches without getting a really good hit. However, one of the articles I saw reminded me that if your machine wants to play a sound when Windows shuts down, and the sound file itself is bad, you will get a failure like this. You can go into ControlPanel>Sounds and change the sound for Windows Exit to "none". See if that makes a difference.

I freshly reinstalled my windows 7.
before and after the install,
when I watch videos on youtube.com (that's the only example atm),
the videos play great, flawless framerate, no matter the quality.
but they will randomly lockup. pause. only while in fullscreen.
high speed internet, videos have completed downloading, streaming speed isn't the issue.

if i press ESC to the video minimizes to a smaller display and works flawlessly,
if i press full screen again, the video continues flawlessly, untill 5 or 10 seconds later,
no specific time, they may more may not pause again.

no other system annoyances that i can recall.
i tried updating divx, although Ive never had to install those to watch youtube.

any ideas what could cause full screen video lockup?
ESC and a refullscreen instantly solves the issue, but i have to do it a few times throughout some videos.

reinstall java maybe? seems like I had to install java to watch youtube. i forget.

I would make sure my Java script was OK. Do you run Trend A/V by any chance. This can block Java! What's you broadband speed? Does this happen at all times of the day or only at specific times?

There is also a more advanced 'bootable' cd which can aslo be foudn on their website. By following this link to a video guide, you have lots of chances of recovering most-all of your data, only downside is that you must have a seperate hdd to copy the recovered files onto, be it your internal HDD or an external one. DONT COPY YOUR RESTORED FILES STRAIGHT BACK ONTO THE DRIVE as this may lead to permenante data loss. It is upto you if you choose the cd/normal one. Could i recommend you ask gregrocker to have a say in this thread as he knows alot in this area,

At my wits' end here. This is a problem I've been working on for 6 months.

Symptoms:
Random powerdowns when playing games and also when running MemTest http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ Windows isn't set to restart on BSOD the system just shuts off like the plug has been pulled. It can then restart immediately with no problems until a game or MemTest is run.

Web browsing, DVD watching and other non game tasks have never cause the problem to date

Things to rule out:
Graphics cards (happens with 2 different cards)
PSU (happens with 2 PSUs 400W and currently running 650W)
OS (I upgraded from WinXP 32bit to Vista 32bit )

And…memory sticks - I'll elaborate.

I upgraded from 1gb in 2 512mb sticks to 2gb in 2 1gb sticks. After months of trying to find the problem I ran memtest and it consistently repeated the powerdown error.

Problem solved defective memory. I put the defective sticks in a backup machine (it only really uses the web anyway) and reordered the same mem sticks again (they were a really good deal). The problem is still there with the new memory sticks in place.

I've managed to get some temperature logs from the crashes and nothing seems out of the ordinary. The CPU and GPU temps are all in a nice 60'C range consistently.

I've checked and rechecked if the ram is ok for my MB and it's recommended. MB: ASUS A8N-VM RAM: Crucial 2x1GB 184Pin DIMM PC3200 Non-ECC Unbuffered.I've tried lots of combinations of sticks in the chann... Read more

My desktop will go through the normal boot process but right when it tries to load my desktop it surges and does a reboot. the strange thing is there doesn't seem to be any conflict when I check the system during safe mode. also it only like command prompt and reg. safe mode, not networking safe mode. I am under the impression that it is not a sofware problem but a hardware issue but can't be for sure in safe mode.

A:Auto powerdown

I'm not a computer 'whiz', but have had various "no boot or sometimes boot/sometimes not" issues with computers over the years, and it does usually turn out to be a hardware problem. Have you opened the case and ensured that ALL connections are "right"? By "right", I mean is there a board or cable that's part way out of contact with the slot or pins? I've had that happen to the cable connector in the back of a hard drive. If the PC is relatively old (3+ years), have you tried pulling the boards and cleaning the contacts using a rubber eraser? Do you have a diagnostics program like SystemSuite that will test virtually every hardware item? I had a "sometimes-would-not-boot" problem less than 3 months ago, ran SystemSuite's diagnostics and it failed (of all things) the DVD drive. After replacing it, the system boots 100% of the time.

Ok so,

About two days ago we had a heatwave which reached 44 Degrees celcius (for you foreigners, Thats ridiculously hot)

Unfortunaely i was not home at the time to move my PC into a cooler environment.

When i got home and turned my PC on it ran perfectly normally for about ten minutes when it suddenly cut out. It did not shut down, it just cut out.

I turned it back on and the same thing happened after about 5 minutes, i am now to the point where (IF) it turns on it lasts a few seconds.
The longer i leave it off for the longer it runs for before dying.

I opened it up assuming it was a problem with the power supply and found it absolutely packed with dust, the fan was able to spin freely however the heat sink was stuffed with dust.

I cleaned what i could however i could not manage to get the fan off as it is retarded ( Some weird release system) and as i am still new to this i dont want to mess with it.

I have researched the problem and found a few different theories
1. Some motherboard shutdown system, preventing it from overheating.
2. A virus in the RAM (I belive highly unlikely, and question its possibility)
3. Faulty Power supply

My belief is its overheating and shutting itself off to avoid causing itself damage,

Any help is appreicated

unfortunately i don't know the specs and cant check them due to it not being able to run however i know:
OS: Vista 32 bit
Age: Around 4 Months

Well, this is my last resort. Before the problem, a little about myself.

I am 16, and have been building pc's for a few years. I work at PSL-PC, in Fort Pierce, FL, and this is my current rig:

Athlon64 3700+ s939
ECS KN1 Extreme (mobo)
Sapphire Radeon x1800XT 512MB
1GB OCZ Voltage Extreme Gold
160GB WesternDigital 7200.8

etc, etc.

Anyway, down to the problem.

When I play games, or install software, I generally get a complete powerdown. I don't know why.

Things I have checked:

1) Replaced PSU w/ 550watt OCZ Modstream
2) Checked temps, GPU, CPU. Both fine.

· I suspected the gfx card was overheating, but I used RivaTuner to up the fan speed to 100%… Needless to say, it still shutdown while installing WoW. L
· The CPU never gets above 35c… Stock cooler with ArticSilver5…

3) Updated all drivers. (Nada. Even tried the Omega drivers.)
4) Flashed the BIOS. ( It fixed a problem I had earlier in the build, with a corrupted bootscreen.)
The only thing I have yet to do is run a troubleshooter for my motherboard… it doesn’t appear to be bad, there are no bad caps. or anything.
Thanks for any support

Does anyone know the .bat "Powerdown" code for vista? I know the shutdown code, but uppon activation, i want the program to just immediately turn off the computer, not log out and shut down vista.

what is the code and would such a program cause any problems?

A:.bat powerdown code

Hi ReconToaster, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would not recommend that option. It will cause a improper shutdown screen at the next bootup and can cause hard drive corruption with data loss of anything you had running at the time of killing the power.

The best option is to use the default shutdown option of letting it logoff first, then shutdown power.

Shutdown shortcut


If you are just wanting it to shutdown quicker, then this is a safe method to use instead.

Hi,

I'd like to ask whether any HDD activity will reset the HDD idle timer.

The thing is, I frequently have a download queue with JDownloader. What I want to do is if there's no activity AFTER all downloads are finished the HDD will 1st power down, and then the PC, as I frequently leave my PC unattended.

I have set the power management to turn off HDD after 30min of inactivity, and the PC after 3hrs. However, I frequently found after a wake-up that the HDD and/or PC is powered down in the middle of a download.

How can I setup the power management like I want?

TIA

A:Setting up HDD Powerdown

You can't. Look for some 3rd party software that will allow this kind of control.

Maybe you could even do it with a batch file if there is a way to look at the JDownloader queue and see when it's empty, do a shutdown /s /t 0.

This problem seemed to start after I installed a cracked Altbinz .30. The program just wouldn't download anything correctly. So I posted on the Altbinz website and they told me the cracked version has a Trojan virus attached.

Hello

Recently my computer has exhibited problems shutting and powering down. If I leave it on for more than 15-20 mins, it will "hang" for about a minute or so in between me trying to access the shut down panel (ie. the three options to either shut down, restart or switch accounts) and actually getting there. When I finally get prompted to select at shut down procedure, it exits the desktop normally, and then takes about 2 mins or so to power down completely, which is considerably longer than previously.

I have tried following the steps listed here http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.php, but to no avail. Granted, I might not have done it properly, since I'm less than technically savvy, but so far nothing has helped.

I'm quite confident, that it started happening around the time I installed Diablo II again, but deleting said game hasn't helped, and I have no idea why it would have trouble with this particular item. My PC is almost brand new (although it had some "issues" when I received it at first...), so it should have no trouble running the games I play.

If anyone has any advice I would be happy to hear it.

Thanks in advance!

Hit control alt delete, that will bring up task manager. Click the processes
tab and see if anything is hogging cpu cycles. If you find something
that is not expected to run, that is the culprit more then likely. More
than likely whatever it is, is running all the time. This way we can

The settings on monitor power in control panel are:
T/O monitor after 10mins
T/O HD after 25mins

__________________
 

A:System Powerdown Problem

It's because of the setting 'System hibernates after 45 mins'. When a system hibernates, it powers down completely, but any programs that were running at the time of shut down will start-up again when the power is turned on.

If you prefer to keep the power on all the time then you could just let it go into stand-by mode, which will put in a low power state. When you want to resume, just move the mouse and the power will come back up.

A:XP powerdown/reset problem

It might be a program that is preventing you from shutting down. Try going to start,run, type in 'msconfig', press enter. click the startup tab, and uncheck everything in there except systray and explorer (if they are listed, i don't think they are). restart your computer. then try shutting down. if the problem doesn't occur after that, then it was a startup program causing it. If it doesn't happen, then it most likely is caused by something else, perhaps you may need to repair your windows installation. In this case, go back into msconfig and re-check everything. Then boot up using your windows xp cd, and choose repair installation. Hopefully that will do it.

I messed up by letting my processor run without my heatsink sitting properly on it - thinking it was a psu/possible g-card issue I continued to test games, but under advice from here (to test voltages) I found my processor was overheating to as high as 100-110 degrees

it was working this morning, went out to get a new heat sink and thermal paste, came home, had to take out mobo (and as such, g-card, soundcard, some power connectors) to fit the back panel/rack for the heatsink.

Job done... I attempted to boot up but got an error 87 on my mobo (power not supplied to processor, I'd just forgot) - the pc just idled with power on for as long as I left it and of course it would not post without a cpu (no power to it) - point being, the power stayed on.

So with a bit of relief I simply plugged the cpu power cord in thinking that was it... well, nope...

The PC now powers on for 2 seconds, and cuts power, as if its trying to protect my mobo from a power surge or it just cant power the CPU (I conclude that because if I unplug the cpu power, the machine will stay on, but as say before, no post.
In this state, it also seems to struggle a few times every 10 seconds, even the LEDs which are constant blink a little and the fans slow for 1-2 seconds.)

A:2 second power on, then powerdown (repeats)

Sounds like your CPU overheated to me or bent a pin when you tried to put it back in. Check for bent pins. If you did bend on you can bend it back and see if it works. Otherwise orfer a new CPU. There is a chance your mobo is damaged too.

I have begun to experience problems with MESH machine. Time and time again it will just switch off. When trying to reboot I get 2 different messages either;

1) Options on how to boot safe, networking etc due to hardware changes

or

2) That windows did not shutdown correctly and how should i reboot

Sometimes the machine will fully boot and remain power up for perhaps 30 mins sometimes no more than 5 secs.

This can happen whether I try do actually use the machine or even if I do nothing.

When it does boot up after choosing an account to log on "PLEASE WAIT" can be on screen for up to 10 minutes before I see desktop.

I did recently upgrade my graphics card to an ATI Radeon x1950 Pro with 512mb but this worked perfectly for over a month before the problems have started.

What I have noticed is that If i do manage to get beyond 20 mins and accept updates from windows update (what I thought maybe the problem) updates will download OK but as soon as they attempt to install BANG off she goes.

When I remote to a PC using the shutdown shortcut (C:\shutdown \\"PCname" /c /y /t:30) It doesn't power down the PC it just displays "It's safe to power down your PC". At this point I need to have someone hold in the power button to power off. I need it to power off so I can restart it later.

Hey all. Not sure if this belongs in Hardware but I'll post here for now. I got this problem about a month and a half ago that's been driving me insane. I'm usually able to fix pc problems or at least isolate the source pretty easily, but this one has had me on edge for too long now.

Specs: Asus G1S gaming laptop, 3gb ram, running windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, AMI bios

Useful background info: I lost internet service for a bit and left my computer in hibernate or sleep mode for about 10 or so days. Once I turned it back on, I suffered an unprotected power surge. The values on BIOS were reset (date and time were lost) but I'm not sure if it was a result of the power surge or the extended sleep.

PROBLEM: Laptop restarts/reboots after I shut it down. Everything powers down as it is supposed to and all the lights shut off, but within 3-5 second it starts up again. This ONLY occurs with AC power plugged in. When it is on battery alone, it shuts down fine (though sometimes I have failed boots from sleep mode when on battery alone). Also, sometimes the laptop will turn on after I plug in the AC with no prompt from myself.

Attempted Solutions:

1. BIOS Config - I tried checking my bios for any possible Wake-On LAN but this did not fix the problem and neither did I've also tried flashing the BIOS with a new version, but that did not work either. I've tried a more advanced method by getting a ROM of the bios file and checking it out with AMIBCP (p... Read more

Not very often, but occasionally, my computer locks up. It has always been when I haven't been "around" though one night I was trying to sleep and I heard something strange.

My computer sounded like it was shutting down. Like a hickup. The music that was playing froze and it hickuped again. Then the music resumed. About thirty seconds later, another double-hickup and the music and system froze for good.

The temperature at the front of the case was about 80-some degrees, so I don't think it's the heat. Could it be a power problem? I have 350 watts. Or is it something else?

I'm running XP Pro and have a powerdown delay that's driving me nuts. When I shutdown (or restart), the system charges right through Windows shutdown--saves my settings and goes through "Windows is shutting down" at great speed, then hangs on the blue screen of death for nearly a minute before actually shutting the computer down. I've read a number of FAQs, tried a number of fixes (shutdown.exe, for example) but still my PC doesn't want to throw in the towel.

Can anyone help?

Hello

I encounter a problem while attempting to shut down my PC. When trying to access the shutdown panel, my computer freezes/"hangs" for about a minute, before I'm prompted to shut down, restart, or switch accounts. After selecting to shut down completely, it correctly exits desktop mode, but then it againt takes a worrying amount of time to finally power down, something in the neighborhood of 1-2 mins.
I seem to recall this beginning after deleting a few batches of quarantined files after running Ad-Aware, but I'm unsure to be honest. I also installed the game Diablo II and it's expansion (plus the required patches), but removing said program has not fixed the issue.

Note that this all started something like 3 weeks ago.

While I followed the 5 steps, the free Panda scan detected 18 malware items that I couldn't find using Ad-Aware, which is evident in the log.

Hi sorry about his probably familiar type of first post from a non expert who badly needs some help.I have just been given a Fujitsu Lifebook S6540 running windows 7 and on the whole it is fine but it is eating the battery when switched off. Research on the internet has shown that the computer, although seeming to shut down may still be running in the background. I have therefore been into the registry and changed the powerdown after shutdown code to 1 rather than 0 which should ensure a complete shut down. I duly did this and let the computer charge up before shutting down and then left it for a day. It did not make a shred of difference and found half the battery had been used.

I have read around on various things that might cause this but a lot of it has been in extremely technical computer speak that I have been unable to understand. Is anyone here able to give me some clear trouble shooting advice and tell me what may be causing this?I would be very grateful. I am currently leaving the computer for a while after opening up in safe mode then shutting off

A:Powerdown after shutdown not happening (batt drain when off)

How are you shutting down? From a the desktop hit Alt+F4, make sure Shut down is selected then hit the enter key.

you could also turn off the hibernate system, Cmd prompt, powercfg -h off hit the enter key. Once that is off the system may shut all the way down.

This is a Dell machine running Vista; no recovery CDs came with (and it was also bought 2nd hand). The C drive has most of the files, a small separate partition (designated with a different drive letter) has a file manifest as an ASCII text file that I last updated to March, but which I haven't yet been able to use to do any comparisons with. A 3rd partition has Fedora on it, which I am presently in.

There may have been a premature powerdown. Subsequent powerup had an unending delay, making it necessary to power it down again. Safe mode crashed and gave BSOD. Safe mode gave BSOD with all other startup options. All startup attempts had the same delay with the BSOD at the end.

The BSOD reads:

STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternative.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

and proceeds to do a dump with the messages

Initializing disk for crash dump ...
Beginning dump of physical memory.
Dumping physical memory to disk: <numbers, 100 is the last shown>

Every time I power off computer, it says I have updates to install. The only update showing is a skype update. I also get a random "Help for Skype" browser pop up screen at times. When I have tried to go to a restore point it says it is unable to do that. The restore point problem started before the power down problem. I have had two warnings from Norton and Windows that there was a virus attack that was prevented in the recent past. I am hoping to get some help to see if some malware is causing this issue.

This is not a typical BSOD crash. My Dell Inspiron's monitor intermittently doesn't wake up once power management shuts it off. The problem is monitor doesn't fully shut off. One way to know the monitor won't wake up is when the CPU is griding away, fan is on full blast, laptop heated up, monitor still has a faint white brightness but no disk activity. I have tried connecting the laptop HDMI and VGA output different monitors and TVs but the monitor/ TV doesn't recognize any input signal during this phase. Yesterday, CPU suddenly started griding away without a pause while I was working and the base plastic was so hot I couldn't place it on my lap anymore. System Idle was 95-99%; I wanted to check whether laptop will not wakeup after power management kicks and this morning I couldn't wake up the laptop and had to cold boot it

I cannot put my laptop to sleep or hibernate when this occurs, the computer will just keep griding away with fan at full blast but will never hibernate or sleep.

I've run chkdsk, defrag etc but no issues were reported. I have checked for viruses etc, nothing obvious. Any help on what I can do next and how to investigate this further would help.

Thanks in advance

Hi
Hope someone can help. I have 3 x Win7 PCs SP1 on a small network. One of them looses its default gateway settings on power-down. When powered up the gateway settings are completely blank (see screenshot below). and the network name changes to Unidentified network. The network type becomes Public rather than my Work Network. When I re-enter the gateway IP address I can again connect to the net - until the next power down

I have already eliminated possible hardware causes - network cables, switch and router ports etc. I have also rebuilt the TCP/IP and tried rebooting in Safe Mode with networking, but the systems remain the same.

Any ideas
Sillytowser

A:Unidentified Network - Default Gateway address disappears on powerdown

You could try running the following command in an elevated command prompt and see if it sticks. Just replace the gateway IP "192.168.0.1" with your routers gateway IP.


Code:

name="Local Area Connection" static 192.168.37.105 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1
There doesn't seem to be a firm resolution for this particular problem but it can be a driver problem or problem with winsock so running the two winsock commands one at a time in an elevated command prompt may help.


Code:
netsh winsock reset catalog
(reset winsock entries)


Code:
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit
(reset TCP/IP stack)

There is no software replacement for RAM. Soft RAM never really worked anyways. The best option is to buy more RAM.

I have recently installed XP home edition to my PC. AMD 1600, 256 Ram, and 40gb hard drive.

Initially I had a generic internal 56k modem installed however XP didn't get on very well with it. Which caused the modem to connect very rarely (usually needed 10-15 attempts before a connection could be established) and when it did at only 26kps.

So I decided to purchase a new soft 56k-usb modem, V92 and XP compliant (apparently!). When installing the modem XP brings up the not digitally tested message. I continued anyway and the modem installed OK. This was exactly what the installation instruction told me to do. Once installed it continued to work without problems until last week. Now when XP loads it gets to the welcome screen ok, but as soon as I click on my user ID it either restarts the PC or causes it to do a physical memory dump.

I have performed a XP repair, and ever since then when I install the Modem it works fine, but next time I log on as soon as I try to connect to the internet the system resets.

Should I bin my new modem and get a one that is approved by Microsoft? Or is there a patch/fix out there that will prevent my PC disagreeing with the modem.

any ideas email at [email protected]
thanks
