I suggest you check log for all entriesand error inevent also update the graphics card. Follow both links below:

The event log for any error entries

Update the graphics card

  • Tecra A5 - charges the battery only when the computer is turned off

    Hello

    For a few days, my Tecra A5 has started to beep and stop it (like when the battery is low) then that it was connected to the power supply adapter.

    I finally realized that when the computer is plugged in, the battery discharge and does not use the power supply to recharge.

    On the other hand, if I turn off the computer, the battery starts to charge.
    I replaced the battery a few months ago, so I think it's still OK.

    The charger would be defective? Seems strange since it can always recharge the battery when the computer is turned off.

    Thanks in advance for your contributions.

    > The charger is defective?

    Theoretically; Yes, but could also be electronic supply on the motherboard is affected, but on the first stage of the AC adapter should be verified and laptop needs to be tested with AC adapter new, good work.

  • Computer will turn off when the PXI chassis is turned off

    Hello

    I realized that my computer is shut down properly if I disable my chassis PXI-1036, until the computer is turned off. Is this a normal behaivour?

    As I remember, the chassis PXI-1036 must be turned on until the computer is power on, and I think that maybe on turn it off I have to follow the same procedure.

    Thanks a lot for your advice,

    Hector

    The chassis must be on anytime on the PC is.  Then it turn on before the PC and turn it off after the PC.

    This is because the chassis is an extension of the PC's PCI bus, so he expects everything to be available all the time the PC is powered on, as would be a PCI expansion card.

    You're overthinking this problem.  Simply configure tasks planned to inform you of missed tasks .  If the date of scheduled backup has been a weekend or a holiday with the computer off, the next time you turn on the computer you will get a notification that "some tasks did not run."  At this time, manually start the backup job.

    Hello LisaBrookes525

    Thank you for your comments.

    Just before you cart the machine to a technician try to change the fuse in the plug on the main power cable to the PC. Your machine is completely dead it may be something as simple as a fuse.

    Another option could be the PSU (Power Supply Unit) inside the PC

    Yes.

    You will need to have the laptop for a tuneup to happen.

    I recommend that your schedule the tuneup for a long time when you are not using the laptop during the day so you can stop it after what he's done.

  • Cannot use Wake on LAN, unless that "allow this computer to turn off the device to save power" is checked

    Wake on LAN - power management

    On my Media Center PC, I am unable to use Wake on LAN unless "allow this computer to turn off the device to save power" is checked (in the tab power management of the adapter in the Device Manager). "Allow this device to wake the computer" and 'Allow only a magic packet wake the computer' is checked, but become grayed out when "allow this computer to turn off the device...". ' is not checked.

    The problem is, Wake On Lan doesn't work unless the computer has been asleep for a short period of time. If I try to activate the computer using WOL after about 10 minutes, he never wake. I guess that's because "Allow this computer to turn off the device to save power" is checked, the machine is before turning off the network adapter.

    Is it possible to force the computer to disable the NETWORK card, but would retain the capability of WOL? Or ensure you THAT WOL works little regardless of how long the PC has been asleep?

    The machine is a Windows 7 PC with a Nvidia nforce network controller.

    By the way, I have a laptop on the same cable network that has all three items checked in the tab for its NIC device power management, and this machine can be awake at all times using WOL, regardless of how long he has been asleep, this issue must therefore be with the configuration of the Media Center computer.

    I would be really grateful for any suggestion, I spent a lot of time trying to get this to work!

    See you soon

    Hello

    If the systems are only a sleep you don't need a magic packet.

    If computers are set to wake on any network traffic all Ping or arp will wake them up.

    For this configuration, it is best to disable the saving of NIC.

    There may be some variations on where is the energy saving setting.

    Here are a few examples, YMMV, look around your systems.

    ----------------------------------

    Real means WOL shut down a computer on Hibernate real position, http://www.ezlan.net/WOL.html

    However as these has involved the PSU cooperation. Motherboard. Network card and are not considered critical by the industry for the user end is a YMMV situation.

    12 Desktop who are under my immediate control (mix and match brands and processors). Only three are fully compliant and properly awake.

    Three satisfied partially, the rest don't care my desires/needs of Wake on LAN.

    On the positive side, since it is now fashionable to go green, the percentage of new computers that keep the better sleep habits significantly improved.

  • Backup cancelled in Windows 7 when the computer is turned off.

    I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system.

    Periodically, the Action Center will display a message saying that I have to do a backup, what I do before turning off the computer. However, when I reboot the computer, I discovered that the backup has been cancelled.

    I have searched the web but can't find information about how to make the computer shuts down automatically once the backup completed successfully.  Does anyone have a solution?

    The backup has been working in the past?

    Have you ever attempted an upgrade to Windows 10 and then back to Windows 7?

    For example let's say you have your backup scheduled task to run at midnight...

    If your computer is stopped at midnight, the backup does not - because the computer is stopped and the task was "missed" because the computer has been shut down.

    If you have the backup task configured on "Run as soon as possible after a regular departure was missed":

    When your computer working again missed backup task starts automatically.

    If you have your scheduled backup job to run at midnight and your computer is in "Sleep" mode, you have the task configured to wake the computer to run the backup:

    This won't work for wake up the computer if it is in "Sleep" mode  It will not work if the computer is in hibernation or if the computer is shut down.  As you can be awakened from sleep, the computer can be awakened from sleep, but you can't be awake if you're dead (stop).  You have to sleep to being awake.  You can be awake if you're dead or hibernation.

    The 'problem' with this approach is if the computer wakes up and runs the backup it will continue to function and you don't want that.   You can the computer to wake up, run the backup, and then click Stop (or to go back to sleep) when the backup is complete, and you can configure to occur in two different ways.  If that's how you think you want things to work ask the question in the right way, and describe how you want things to work.

    If your computer is in hibernation or stop the scheduled backup will not work until the computer working again and realizes that he has missed a task... then the backup will run - if you have the task set to do as the first example.

    Depending on certain factors that have nothing to do with Windows there are ways to make your computer start at a certain time of the hibernation or shutdown (mean 23:55) so it will be quick and then the backup will take place at midnight but will continue to operate your computer unless you include an additional step to stop the system again when the backup is complete.  These things are not exactly automatically built into Windows, but there might be ways to do things the way it works.  If that's how you think you want things to work ask the question in the right way, and describe how you want things to work.

    Find how to solve is often a matter of the question or stating the problem clearly there is no guess, no things difficult and none of these proceedings of the wild goose.

    What is the problem with the way your backup works now?

    What part doesn't work the way you think it should work?

    How do you think this should work?

    How it works?

    If your computer is turned off (off) do you want that it to wake up itself, run the backup and then stop when the backup he fill?  You can do it if you want, but it takes an extra effort and has a few requirements outside the Windows operating system.

    The task of the example above is set to run every Monday at 09:00.

    If my computer is running at 09:00 on Monday, the backup will start and run Monday at 09:00.

    If my computer doesn't work at 09:00 on Monday, the backup will run as soon as possible after the computer restart us and that's fine with me.

    I do not use sleep or Hibernate so I don't have to worry about how get the copy backup to run under these conditions.

    I replaced my hard drive and format my computer before turning off the software PS.  It need my code series now, but I had lost.

    How can I solve the problem and use the software again?

    If you use a perpetual Photoshop and formatted your disc version of starting without disabling your activation of Photoshop, you also Adobe supports help you activate Photoshop once you retrieve your serial number.  The startup disk formatting would destroy that credential of Activation Photoshop machine which is registered in the database of the Adobe activation server. Which reduces the activation numbers you have to use.  If you have Photoshop installed on a second computer that means that you have no free activation available as well, even with your key you can't activated the machine.

  • With this update my computer not turn off. Clears the screen, but this is all about.

    This computer is the new 12-inch mac that came out this spring.when I've updated about a month ago, it would not turn off. I got tired of hold down the b power button to turn it off. I returned it for a back earlier upward. It automatically updated again and here I am in the same disorder. I think I'll just close the lid and stop worrying in this regard.

    Stop your Mac. Use the power button if you wish. Now start with the SHIFT key is pressed. This will start in Safe Mode, with all extensions turned off. Safe mode is slow to start, so give it time, it checks a lot of staff. If it works fine in Safe Mode, restart normally. If it works now, you are finished.

    If the problem comes back after a reboot, you have an extension conflict. Disable all extensions via system preferences. To isolate which extension is at fault, turn on an extension at the same time, restart in the meantime, until you find bad.
