Pavilion windows 8.1 stop question

I improved my new Pavilion TS 15 Windows 8 to 8.1 and noticed that the computer doesn't Cup not completely using charms bar, close button. The screen turns off but the Start button / stop and the wireless key remains illuminated. Both turn off if I hold the Start button. If I use/right click on the new button of windows desktop and click on turn off computer turns off completely. Anyone has any ideas what may be wrong?

Evolution of the situation. I made a few windows troubleshooting, not quite clear on what I did, except that product updates a few repairs. After troubleshooting, I found that the computer would be completely off via the power button in the bar of charms. It is all a little surprise but stop working whenever I tested it. I now keep my fingers crossed that all is now well.

  • Desktop Window Manager has stopped working and was closed

    One of our machines (HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC running Windows Vista x 64) will receive the error "Desktop Window Manager has stopped working and was closed" with lots of close error. He reappears (as well as all windows flasher to non-aero, then back to aero) in a few minutes, spends about 5 times per hour.

    I did some research on this and have already taken the following measures without a bit of luck:

    1 run the command chkdsk / SFC scan - nothing found via chkdsk, SFC found some issues fixed, and some, it did not set. Them that it solves not all related to Windows Sidebar, which I do not / does not start.

    2. put updated drivers for ATI Radeon 3200HD - this had a lot of new questions. Installing caused newer drivers ATI catalyst to no longer work with errors during installation and popup errors at startup. After trying several solutions workaround to try to get installed it, I ended up coming back to the driver that came with the laptop, that are properly installed and working without error. I am skeptical of update of this stable driver as a solution to the dwm.exe error.

    3. this problem just started yesterday, that occur with not a lot of changes. Other than updates of windows (I think that .NET framework and a few other updates installed), I replaced NOD32 antivirus with Bitdefender antivirus. The system was stable with bitdefender for about 2 weeks, so I'm not convinced that this program is causing the error.

    4. the event viewer shows the following:

    Failing application Dwm.exe, version 6.0.6002.18005, time stamp 0x49e02696, failed module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6002.18881, time stamp 0x51da3d16, exception code 0 x 80000003, offset 0x00000000000461f0, process id 0 x 124 error, start the application time 0x01cea0365a457adc.

    Offset, process id and start on time all vary, but there are a lot of these application errors in the viewer all screaming Dwm.exe like the failing application.

    What should be my next course of action?

    You do not receive an error but a caveat. NTStatus results (the set of codes execption used by ntdll - the failed module) begin to 0 for no error, 4 for information (you should never see this), 8 for putting guard and C for error.

    It's your specific error.

    //
    MessageId: STATUS_BREAKPOINT
    //
    MessageText:
    //
    EXCEPTION {}
    Breakpoint
    A breakpoint has been reached.
    //
    #define STATUS_BREAKPOINT ((NTSTATUS) 0x80000003L) / / winnt

    Problem is, you shouldn't have breakpoints. Breakpoints are set by debuggers and stop the execution of the program to the State of the program can be examined. There should be no breakpoints in a retail system. More breakpoints are inserted into memory during execution of the program in a debugger. They tend not to do in the actual file.

    So here are two assumptions, either you have no exit code, IE test code (driver?). Or you have a running program that behaves like a debugger (which is suspect).

    Each of the three towers of programs, services, and drivers in increasing amounts. So restrict the possible culprits.

  • I have a HP Pavilion Windows Vista Home Premium, and the D: drive is full.

    I have a HP Pavilion Windows Vista Home Premium, and the D: drive is full. I don't understand how he got that way... but... I've never used windows to the top, however I do back up with my Norton Security.  I'm not a COMPUTER guru AT ALL and am very confused as to what must be saved for me to do a system restore.  I just made a backup on a 16 GB usb flash drive, which included photos, documents, email, contacts and music.  But what of my registry or my drivers I've updated on the latest updates of 2 years and windows?

    So in plain English for the layperson to the computer, lol, can someone tell me...

    1. where should I back up to? (windows, norton?)

    2. what should I back up? EXACTLY, please. lol (I have hundreds of games, I don't want to back to the top if possible)

    3 and... HOW MUCH ALCOHOL SHOULD I HAVE AVAILABLE WHILE TRYING THIS. LOL just kidding. Laughing out loud

    Hello

    Updates must be installed in a certain order and no Service Pack must be installed unless and until it is offered through Windows Update.

    However, try these options:

    Step 1: You can not reuse what already automatically downloaded and installed. You can however save updates and install them manually if you wish.

    Step 2: You can create a system image on the computer. A system image is an exact copy of a disc. By default, a system image includes the drives required for Windows to run. In addition, it includes Windows and your system settings, programs and files. You can use a system image to restore the contents of your computer if your hard drive or computer ever stops working.

  • "Windows Explorer has stopped working" if I open Control Panel

    Guys, could someone help me please?

    When I open the Control Panel, it says "Windows Explorer has stopped working" and then it restarts Windows Explorer. When I right click on any folder it says "recording of the UI language is not valid" 5 times and for a split second, it says "Corrupted registry" then it works. But I am unable to use the control panel.

    I have Windows Vista home premium and Norton Antivirus.

    Can someone help me please?

    Hello

    The error message says something about corrupt registry.
    So, it seems that this issue would be related to incorrect or damaged registry entries.

    If the registry is damaged, your operating system will not work as it should and can feel such or similar problems.

    I m using the CCLeaner to clean the registry and other system files.
    It s a free tool and you should try it.

    If this does not work and if you notice the same question so I would recommend reinstalling the OS using the Toshiba recovery disc.
    In most cases this will help you fix this registry

  • Windows is not stopped correctly

    I have a Windows XP and one day I started it up, and he says

    "Windows don't is not stopped correctly, please choose an option below.
    I thought, what must have been a power surge, it's happened before, so I just hit start Windows normally. He began to start and then a screen like the one before that "Windows is not stopped... '. "I tried other options, but it's just a continuous loop. How should I do?

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    The question was preceded by a loss of power, aborted reboot or abnormal termination? (this includes the plug pulling, buttons power, remove the battery, etc.)

    The afflicted system has a CD/DVD drive work?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    If your system uses to work properly, what do you think might have happened to her since the last time, that it did not work properly?

    If there is a problem starting, XP is configured to automatically try to start again and you can stuck in a loop not being able to go beyond the screen boot options, or none of these startup options you choose will work only.

    Sometimes, when XP has a problem starting or falls down and tries to start again, it will give you a "short" menu of boot options and none of them will appear to be good to get your system going again.  You have tried them all!

    The options are similar to the Advanced Boot Options menu XP, but the only option that you need (disable automatic error system reboot) are not offered, because XP went too far during the boot process and offers a limited number of boot options.

    If this is the case, you must call Options menu advanced boot yourself until you do not see the option:

    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    When you get the XP Advanced Options correct start menu you want to see, he has options on it like these:

    Safe mode
    Safe mode with networking
    Safe mode with command prompt

    Enable Boot logging
    Enable VGA mode
    Last good Configuration known (your most recent settings that worked)
    Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
    Debug mode
    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    Start Windows normally
    Reset
    Return to OS Choices Menu

    You need to choose in this menu is the option:

    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    Then if XP does not start normally, you will see an error screen with information and clues about the problem and then you can decide what to do next.

    If you do not see the automatic restart on system failure option turn it off, you must reset your system and start typing the key F8 on the keyboard until you see her disable automatic restart on system failure option.

    If you miss the window of opportunity F8, you must try again and start tapping the F8 key with more urgency (earlier and more frequently) until you see disable automatic restart on system failure, and then select.

    You must keep trying the F8 menu until you see disable automatic restart on system failure option, and select it.

    If your system has a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), we need to know what the screen says:

    Here's a BSOD example showing information you provide:

    http://TechRepublic.com.com/i/tr/downloads/images/bsod_a.jpg

    Send for the nose and the Red arrows (3 to 4 lines total).

    Send all * line STOP message since there are clues in the 4 parameters.

    If it looks like there is some kind of name listed in the STOP message file, send this line also.

    Ignore the boring text unless it seems important to you.  We know what a BSOD looks like, we need to know what your BSOD looks like.

    Answering queries and results report of the disable automatic restart on system failure screen and you can decide what to do next.

    ===========================================

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded: run DrirveView - set the VIEW to hide
    Microsoft drivers - update those without drain in their names. (Also update BIOS and)

    drivers chipset on the site of the constructor/the system motherboard.)

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
    necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager
    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/193584-Device-Manager-install-driver.html

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

    Please how do l open my folders that l find dificult to find the required information.

    Hi Sabrina Awuah Aning

    (1) since when are you facing this problem?

    (2) when exactly it happens?

    Looks like the thread you are referring has been moved or merged.

    Method 1: Run the fixit available in the links below and check if that makes a difference

    Diagnose and repair Windows files and folders problems automatically

    Difficulty of broken desktop shortcuts and common system maintenance tasks


    Note:
    Fixit would attempt to recover bad sectors on the hard disk, in the course of this process there are chances of data loss from that particular area.

    Method 2: You can follow the steps described in the article below, which deals with a similar question

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
    necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

  • Windows Sidebar has stopped working

    So a week ago I had a virus, it was picked up by AVG and it has been deleted.  I always spent in SafeMode however, and proceeded to scan of my computer with AVG, Malwarebytes, Microsoft essentials, Spybot - Search and destroy, TDSSKILLER and SUPERAntispyware.  AVG found a Trojan called AGENT.something horse or another.  I deleted it.  Then I restarted my computer and it took a while to load.  Basically it froze for about a minute, and then a message pops up saying "windows Sidebar has stopped working".    I tried to manually, open the Windows Sidebar and my computer freezes for a minute and then the same error message occurs.  Also, I tried to fix it through the command prompt using this method :(http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/117192-windows-sidebar-will-not-start-vista.html.

    So my question is how I solve this problem?  I still have a virus, or if he just has been altered by the virus?  Is it possible to reinstall the sidebar or reset it?

    It seems that there is a bit of the system of corruption, if she fails to recognize the "sfc/scannow" command try to run this utility http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821 to verify and possibly repair damaged/corrupted packets.

  • "Windows Explorer has stopped working".

    Whenever I try to look at the photos I have in the files, I get the message: "Windows Explorer has stopped working" it restarts and continues to repeat the same thing whenever I try to look at my pictures in a slide show. Can someone help me with this?
