  • Computer doesn't turn off not except by a forced shutdown

    My computer shuts down only about half the time, or maybe less, and then I have to force a stop to the bottom by pressing the Start button on the computer.  I use IE 11 and Windows 7 and this problem started a month ago but I don't remember not something unusual is going on when it started.  Sometimes I let it just keep running and showing that he stops, and when I come back later to check it out, sometimes it is an icon in the task bar stating "Windows".  I can click on and close the icon & then it stops.  But it happened only about three times.  Usually he just keep running and showing it to stop until I have to force a stop down.

    Sometimes, when it starts all first, it flashes a message that a window is not closed and I have to click 'Cancel' and close the window.  But it's frozen so does not help by clicking Cancel.  I was always very careful to close all windows and usually turn off the computer at night.

    Of course, I'd appreciate any help with this problem.  wannierob

    Hello Wannierob,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    This scenario usually indicates a problem with the hardware. Alternatively, the driver can cause this problem. To identify the problem, check the following:

    1 overclocking
    : turn off overclocking to see if the problem occurs when the system is running at the correct speed.

    2. check the memory: check the memory using a memory controller. Check each memory chip is the same speed and that it is configured correctly in the system.

    3. power supply: make sure the power supply is enough power to properly manage installed devices. If you have added memory, installed a newer processor, installed additional disks or added to external devices, such devices may require more energy that the current power supply can provide constantly.

    4 overheating: check if the system is overheated by examining the internal temperature of the equipment.

    5. default values: use the default values of the system, and run the system.

    If you see that the computer generates a Stop error message that contains a BugcheckCode value that is not declared in an event ID 41, change the behavior of the computer restarts. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. right click on my computerand then click Properties.

    2. click on Advanced system settings.

    3. click on the Advanced tab.

    4. in the Startup and recovery section, click settings.

    5. Click to uncheck automatically restart .

    For more information, please refer to this.

  • The windows of the bar of Windows are already a form of tabs, so I need them in Firefox. How can I turn off completely from the 23 of Firefox?

    The windows bar already functions as a tab bar. These tabs are called "windows". So, I find windows superfluous Firefox tab. How can I turn off completely from the 23 of Firefox? I don't need to what are essentially the bars of TWO Windows covering the entire width of the image of my screen! I already have a Windows bar at the bottom of my screen, and if I really wanted to, I could change ITS position towards the top of the screen, so that it would LOOK at the windows of Firefox tabs bar. Firefox TABS are, essentially, a SECOND bar Windows superfluous.

    Here are my reasons why I prefer to use Mozilla's Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. I love and admire Firefox intended to Mozilla on good security for Personas Firefox Add-on and for free use of Firefox in the Add on Ad-Block, which, as you know, has the merit of separate to reduce the size of the screen - the last is my reason for wanting to get rid of "windows" Firefox SUPERFLUOUS tabs bar. I'm terribly sick companies forcing bars (most representative of marketing campaigns, trying to sell me something) in my browser (and in my throat) whenever I download something. (In case you haven't guessed, I have deliberately talking about your bar of Firefox tabs as a '' windows' tabs Firefox bar', because the TABS are WINDOWS!)

    You can also have an addon to open new tabs in a new window.

    1. you remember to make changes to the computer before this problem?

    2. are you able to boot into safe mode without any problem?

    Since you are not able to restore the system to normal mode, I suggest you to do a system restore to a recent date of WinRE using the full version of Windows Vista disk.

    Method 1:

    Do follow link below:

    What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista?

    Method 2:

    You can also try to run a scan using Microsoft Security Essentials.

  • monitor turns off not by the switch at the top. power cord seems loose at the back of the monitor. just need a

    I have a hp w2338h monitor, running Windows 7 and I am unable to turn off the monitor through the top switch. The power cord seems loose in its connection to the monitor. Do I just a new cord or something else is necessary?

    Thank you.


    Try to push the power cord firmly upward.  It should not move when it is completely inserted.

    Try a reset of the monitor. Unplug the power cord from the monitor and hold the power button of the monitor for 30 to 60 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and it lights up.

  • Cannot turn off bluetooth from the option of the family disappeared in the context menu of Tablet


    Well, I installed Win 7 on my X61t, as well as new software from Lenovo, and I can't understand how to disable bluetooth now. I used to do that via the context Menu in tablet, I had radios settings there and I could turn off/turn on the WiFi and Bluetooth separately there. Now, I have only one option of radio wireless disable, which basically does the same thing as the wireless switch, so it's a bit useless.

    I guess that option could have dissaperaed because I have not installed logins now (and I can't install it because I'm fine with what I get with 7).

    So, how can I disable BT now? I tried through the taskbar icon, I tried via the Control Panel, through network connections, even through the Device Manager. Even when I disable all BT devices and connections Bluetooth LED remains on, so it is not totally disabled at the hardware level. Of course, so I want to be able to turn off quickly, as I did through the context menu of the Tablet, via the control panel is not really a solution anyway.

    Oh, and I don't know if it's important, but the Bluetooth light is on all the time during the boot now, and I don't think that it was before. Although maybe I just never used on startup with bluetooth turned on, so I didn't notice... here, not sure.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, has soon!

    Dear Stansfield

    Hope a low-tech suggestion works for you.
    Have had a similar experience with the portability of devices two radio WLAN and Bluetooth individually vs black & white radio power.

    Found I needed to load the last shortcut key driver in your case for a X 61 Tablet 7764 CTO,

    Then use the combination Fn and F5 (in blue) instead of other options in some menus of the Windows user interface.
    And voila, I found that the behavior has been defined in the "Fn + F5 parameters" button at the bottom of the pop-up window, the second box option
    "Alternate between turn off all wireless radios and by turning on all radios.
    instead of the first choice that I wanted
    'Display a menu that allows me to control the parameters of power to radio wireless in my system individually.

    Had the behavior corrected, and now he's doing what I want to happen.
    It will be useful for you, too.
