Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Shutting down forever, just hangs there, cannot Control-Alt-Del back to restart or reboot. only function is to go into sleep mode w/ button; but coming back out of sleep just comes back to the logging-off/shutting down wait-forever .. toshiba laptop, home Vista


Answers :

You can kill this machine by pressing the power button in for more than 10 seconds. it should shutdown instantly.

If you have automatic update on this can delay your switch off time as it installs programmes after logging out. i hate updates so i turn them off.

when you get it back up and running ask it to do a disk check of files and repair. It may ask to carry out this during next boot up. this is fine.

You may have linked files etc and this will sort them out for you. A manual run of the file CHKDSK /F is needed

If this helped you vote for me

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)

When I put the computer to "sleep" it decides to come back on by itself. This happens frequently, but not all the time. What could be causing it to do this? Also, if I shut the computer down, completely, on occaion, when I try to log on the the interent, it won't let me and if I try to shut down to try again, it locks me in and I have to shut the computer down by pushing the on/off button, rather than using the icons to shut down.
