Preferred Solution: window 7 professional shutdown if not login

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.)

There's nothing wrong with my computer that I know of, just noticing these black flashes for some time now and thought I would finally seek information on why this could be happening. It happens everytime I turn on my computer, two black screen flashes at the login screen and another black flash in the main menu screen right after logging in. Any ideas?

Thanks

p.s.
2x flash at the login screen
1x flash at main menu screen

The computer only has the administrator profile. The guest account is off. It had two other accounts, but the passwords were forgotten and I deleted the accounts. I've never needed a password for the admin account as I never set one. After running updates and disc cleanup I restarted the computer and now am being asked for a password and cannot login. Also, when asking for the password it says there is a duplicate name/error.

Hello,

I have a Dell laptop with W2K installed. It was working fine until one day when I booted it up it gave a black screen at the windows login. I was able to see windows 2000 professional screen during the boot up process. I have tried boot to safe mode, last known good configuration, connect the laptop to a monitor, got the same problem. If I use control, alt, del and put in my password, I can hear windows 2000 starts. Of course, I cannot see anything on the screen.

Can anyone give me an idea how to fix this please?

Thank you!
 

A:Black window at control, alt, del login window

Hmm, sounds weird. Do you have important data on your HD? Can you back it up? If so, back it up. Pop in the CD and do a repair installation (if it lets you). This should help. You may also want to try a fresh installation. How much memory do you have? It could be that you don't have enough to run Windows.

When I choose SHUTDOWN in XP pro, it gives me : IT IS NOW SAFE TO TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER, inspite the fact that I have an ATX case and Windows ME shuts down properly...

Any ideas?
 

A:Shutdown Problem with XP Professional

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem. (Tip from Terri Stratton.)

This should resolve the powerdown issue in most cases. However, other factors can sometimes interfere with correct powerdown functioning. In that case, consider the following tips:

If you change the default power settings in the BIOS, it can lead to a powerdown problem. Restoring all BIOS power settings to default will likely fix it. (Tip from Kelly Theriot)

One last thing to try disable the CD-ROM’s AutoRun feature.

Let us know what worked for you.

Here is what happened:

2. Computer was changed from being part of domain to part of a workgroup (under My Computer settings)
3. No user name and password were set to be part of the workgroup

After reboot we can't log in to Windows. Will Bart PE or some other program allow us to reset this password or is there any easier option?

I'm running XP Professional service 2 with all but this month's updates called installed.
I'm not sure when this problem started. I normally don't use hibernate or sleep mode. I tried it recently and it totally locked up the computer.[ Including mouse pointer] I have to do a hard boot to restart the computer.

while I've been writing this, a idea came to me. I'll boot the computer in safe mode and try to put it to sleep/hibernate from there. I'll let you know from here, any suggestions are welcome.

There are a few options that you can configure with regard to the Hibernate and Sleep states in the Power Options applet.

You might try playing with some hardware profile settings or creating a new hardware profile to test the functionality of these additional states.

Hallo,

i desperately need help with a BSOD. It randomly comes while closing down windows even in the last second before the power should turn off. I tried to close win down several times without doing anything, i don't change anything, do not open a program or anything else and sometimes it closes down correctly and sometimes i have this bluescreen.

I run a Win7 Upgrade license but installed it to a new harddisk, on my old harddisk is win xp which still works perfectly when i put this hd into my computer. Microsoft Upgrade Advisor told me that my system is win7 ready (it is a vista laptop but i installed xp because i didn't like vista).

I checked the new harddisk with several programs and it is fine and i also checked the Ram with memtest86.

I tried to update the drivers which is not so easy on a laptop for win7 but the problem appears with fresh installed win7 even as with new drivers (most of them are vista drivers) installed.

Windows debugging tools say that it is probably caused by a kernel module which means everything and nothing for me.

BlueScreenView tells me about a conflict between halmacpi.dll and ntkrnlpa.exe which are both part of windows.

Windows XP 32-bit will recognize and use a maximum of about 3.25 GB of RAM.

Windows XP 64-bit will recognize and use more than 4 GB of RAM.

Unless you plan to install it in a computer that has and needs more than 4 GB of RAM, use the 32-bit version.

You may also run into a problem with installing and using certain programs with the 64-bit version.

I am at work and my question is for the computer at home. I have reformat my harddrive and try to install win. xp professional on the computer. Turn on the computer and i am in dos mode. I put in the win. xp professional disk in the cd rom to install. The computer then goes installing, it starts by going to the xp setup screen, ask a few questions like Fats 32 and copywrite agreements and such. It would not go into the actual installation of the xp installation program where it would ask for a disk code. After the xp setup program, it then ask to restart my computer, which i did. After the restart it would ask to "press a key for cd-rom boot" and i did, then it would go into the xp setup screen again and the whole xp setup process would starts over again and then it would ask to be reboot again. Now during the beginning of restarting the computer, if i didn't press a key at that point of time when it was asking "press any key to boot from cd-rom", then it would give me this promt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart". I then would press a key but it would not restart but the same prompt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart" would appear again. I cannot do anyting at this point and have to mannually turn off the computer. I don't know what to do now?

Please help
thanks
 

A:need help in installing window xp professional

NTLDR is missing press any key to restart, your getting this error because there is a cd in the drive and it's looking for NTLDR file, which appears not to be on it. (strange)

go to www.bootdisk.com and download the six floppies for xp. Put the first one in your puter, and restart, run through all six, and then continue the set up process with the cd.

you said you reformatted the hard drive? I believe you have to set the partition first, then format. XP should do this for you, try the boot disks, and let us know if it works.

Even before I unistalled when ever I opened a 2003 application the Windows installer would pop up. Now that I have uninstalled 2007, my 2003 won't open, it is like it isn't there (although I went to the control panel and it was there). The Windows Installer pops up no matter what I try to do, even logging on to the internet.

I went into the control panel where you can add and remove programs and 2003 is still there. I tried restoring back to a previous date, but that wouldn't work.

Hi friends,

Please help me in this matter.

I have upgraded one of my company laptop from windows 98 to windows 2000 professional pack. As such my upgrade was successfull.

Before starting the computer after complete installation, system prompted for entering login name and password to get into windows 2000.

There were no options to login as administrator. So i generated a password to login. I tested all my software programs after upgradation and everything was perfect.

As it was company laptop i dont want login to appear at thhe time of start up. So i went into control panel/user account and deleted the newly created user login name and password accidently without knowing that i logged in as the same name that i deleted.

After this when i restarted my system as usual it asked me for login name and pwd.
Now since i deleted my last login and pwd i cant login at all. Nor there is an option to enter as an administrator?

I tried to start windows in safe mode but there too it is asking for login name ?
There is absolutely no option to login as administrator which is quite strange to me.

Will any one please tell me how to solve this problem ?

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop that originally had Vista installed on it, then it was upgraded to Windows 8. One day it would not boot. It would display a message that Windows was preparing to repair itself and then it would quickly flash a message that the PC ran into a problem and needs to reboot. Once it reboots, it would do the same thing again.

I backed up the data from the hard drive to an external using a Linux live CD and I ran some checks on the HDD. So the HDD appears not to be the source of the problem.

At this point I thought the best choice of action would be to install a fresh/clean copy of Windows 8, However, I am still stuck in the same loop. I turn the laptop on with the Window 8 disk inserted and press any key to boot from the DVD drive when prompted. I can hear the DVD drive spin up and then the Windows logo appears and the same message about running into a problem and needing to reboot appears.

I am really stumped by this one. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Unless there is no password- you often see the password prompt box, but there is no password, so just try pressing the Enter key to log on.

Hello.  I have many pictures is my photo gallery including scans, img and others.  Each item is assigned a number for example scan0001 and img001.  Lately pictures have been showing up in my photo gallery and are assigned numbers that start with B000...for example scan0001 is assigned a number such as B0001234.  Both the scan picture and the B000  picture remain in the photo gallery.  I have an external hard drive and thought that the B000 were backup numbers.  I have looked on google and asked the question about the B000 and have had no luck.  Can someone help.  Thank you.

Hi everyone. The other day I was forced to run a repair of my Windows XP Professional because Windows wouldn't even start. It'd hang on a black screen right after the black Windows XP loading screen would come up just before the login screen is supposed to load. Anyway, ever since then, my login screen has been taking longer than usual to start and it's really annoying. It takes like 2 minutes to load whereas before it only took about 10-20 seconds for it to load. It gets stuck on the Windows Is Starting Up Screen and waits like 2 or 3 minutes before it loads the login screen. What is going on here? How do I fix this?
 

A:Solved: Windows XP Professional Taking Longer Than Usual To Load Login Screen

Oh I forgot to mention that I did a repair install on Windows XP Professional the other day (cause Windows wouldn't start up) and this erased Service Pack 2. Thankfully, I had Service Pack 2 on a CD and was able to reinstall it from the CD rather than try to download it on a dial up connection. This fixed my problem and the Windows XP Professional login screen is coming up much faster now. Thanks! I'll mark this solved now.

Hi All,

I use Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. I want to open folders in command prompt from windows explorer without having me to navigate in the cmd window to my folder. After researching in google, I came to know that there is an option (Open Command Window Here) in the right-click menu to open command prompt windows quickly. However, when I right-click I do not see that option. Instead I see an option called ?cmd?. When I hold shift key and right click on this option I get an error message. See attached.

I tried to google this error in internet but couldn?t get any clues as to why this happens. Some sites suggested me to delete the "Extended" registry keys in the following nodes:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\cmd
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\cmd
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\cmd

I tried to delete the ?Extended? key from the above registry nodes and restarted my laptop but didn?t help.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Open Command Window Here option not working in Windows 7 Professional

Hello Red Hunt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Extended" key is for having to press Shift + right click instead of just right click.

If you like, see if using step 2 in the tutorial below may be able to restore "Open Command Window Here", and no longer having to press Shift.

Open Command Window Here - Add or Remove Shift + Right Click

Hope this helps,

I have Windows 7 RTM x86 installed and it has been a little buggy for me. Firefox has been really slow to type in the toolbar when the history gets full, which didn't happen with vista, and there have been several other bugs. Aside from that, the most annoying one has to be the constant BSOD's I have gotten. They happen when I shut down my laptop, and close my lid. When I wake up the next morning, I'm at the log in screen and when I log in, I get the BSOD error log. Also, I get the BSOD right when I log in to windows. I type in my password and then I get BSOD a few seconds later. I've also gotten it while just casually browsing the web or working on random things. I've tried updating my drivers, and I just recently uninstalled my anti-virus to see if it would help, but I wanted to get the opinion from you guys also.

While looking at blue screen view, they say a variety of bug strings. I get DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. I have zipped up some of my dumps and attached it. If you need anymore information, as I am new to this, then let me know! Thanks in advance.

I have a Dell 4300S with XP Home Edition. until two days ago, I could use the computer, although my Norton anti-virus was detecting viruses. Now, however, I get a login screen which asks for a user id and a password. I do not get the usual screen with the users listed so I can just click on the one I want. If I type in one of the user names and try a password I always get a window saying I failed and try again. If I type in a user name, but no password, and hit OK, I briefly get the wallpaper for that user. However, I can't get into the account and the login window reappears.

Do I need to reinstall the XP cd? Can I fix the problem without losing data files? Thank you.

Chromebook abrutly shuts off once it hits the login screen. I can almost get to desktop if I hit guest login immediately.   Power status light on side looks good to about the time it gets to the login screen and than starts to continously blink.  This is the case only when the power cord is first plugged in.  After the first shutdown and plugged in it will continously blink.  The bootup process can be started again by the power button or opening lid with same results.  We have tried a cold reset, new power brick, recovery, and even disconnected the battery to try without.  Battery indicator (when I can see it for the brief second) still says no charge even though it is plugged in.  Issue occurs in developer mode also.  Seems to keep power for 6 to ten seconds and than thats it.   Thoughts?

Hello, my computer have a strange problem. 
It crashes when i enter bios (after 2 sec), and after i have logged in (after 2 sec). but i can stay as long as i want in the login screen.
 
i don't think its overheating because i can stay in login screen for hours.
i don't think its windows fault, cause it crashes in too bios.
 
could it be a component fault?

I installed the .NET framework so I could run CHC and since then, it shows the Windows 2000 style login and shutdown (as opposed to the Windows XP style with the icons and such)

I hate having to go through the username and password dialogue box when windows starts up. Isn't there some way to switch it back to the XP style?

Let me know if anybody has ideas.

super strange, this problem has come back... faced it about 1.5 years ago, and it fixed itself... just ran the latest set of windows updates (4 total i think)... and now my computer keeps rebooting at the login screen... after exactly 55 seconds after i see my login wallpaper. i have disabled auto restart, but it doesn't obey it... i bypassed my battery backup for my HP desktop. didnt help
i ran the windowsPE repair, and the windows built in startup repair.
this happened awhile ago as i posted, but if i entered my password before the 55 seconds, i was good... i am now unable to enter it because windows is configuring the latest updates... please wait and then black screen, power off, and reboot (with no reboot error screen)

tried safe mode, same thing, tried last know good config, same

Hi Pj,

A kernel power event is the result of a shutdown that happens unexpected, unless someone is not aware of it the event is not informative.

What exactly does this mean?

Do you know what updates are attempted to be installed?

Hello,

I am system administrator in a company where I have several Optipex 7010 and I have a problem that still cannot solve. In several Optipex 7010, if the user takes 4/ 5min to login on Windows, when it inserts credentials as windows shutdown. I have already configured as power options in various ways and no solution or problem.
This is not Windows 7 as not Windows 10, so I think it doesn't make the Windows definition but the BIOS.
I also have a last BIOS update installed.
Has anyone had this problem?
Thanks

I have a couple of problem that I was wondering whether someone knew a solution or could offer some suggestions. I am using Windows XP and have had the computer for about 3-4 years.

About a week ago, I had a problem where when I started up my computer, when it got to the screen that said "Windows Starting Up" It stays there for at least five to ten minutes. It usually takes about 1 second to get that part.

Also when I login to any user account. It takes about two to three minutes to get in. When I finally get in a virus (I'm guessing) automatically disconnects me from the internet and shuts down my McAfee Virusscan.

Last time, I scanned for viruses and found nothing. But when I scanned for spyware I found a couple of entries that I fixed. The following day the long bootup time and login time was fixed.

The problem has arrived again, this time I have scanned for spy ware, viruses and ad-ware but have found nothing and my internet is down on that computer and the virus scan. Any help would be useful, please try to explain it for a beginner-intermediate so I can understand . I would understand most stuff, but if it has anything to do with the registry please try to be more in-depth.

Hello

I've looked around these forums and searched, but haven't found the answer to my problem yet. Hopefully because it's an easy fix.

From the day I installed WinXP Pro SP3 up to 2 days ago, the login screen consisted of a picture and a login box with my user icon. The "Shut Down" menu consisted of a box with three buttons. When I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del, the task manager popped up.

Now:

The login screen consists of an input box with a dropdown menu to select my username. The shutdown menu has the same dropdown menu to select which action I want to take. When I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, a menu with six buttons appears for various functions (lock comp, task manager, shut down, etc.)

This is just an aesthetics thing, but I'd like to know how I could change these menus back to the way they were. Again, this is probably a simple fix, I've just never had to do anything like this before.


Cheers

I had an issue where I could not get online. I admit I must have made a wrong change in msconfig or other setting somewhere. Stupid me, I confess. I now have to hit Enter to login as Administrator upon bootup and the Start->Shutdown box is no longer the three buttons but a box similar in appearance to the login box. I have XP SP-3 and did not load any new software, updates, etc.
How can I get rid of the login box which was never there before and get the former style Shutdown box back?
