Windows Vista Shutdown Problem


hp owner

Recommended Posts

I have recently formatted my PC. It is very old. OS is XP SP3 and Vista Enterprise SP2 64Bit. After logging on into Vista, if I shut down my PC, my Monitor remains on and one cursor "_" blinks and I have observed it for a long time it remains the same. My PC is not shutting down properly. Then I have switch off my Power supply. But restart works perfectly and Windows XP also shut down properly.

I have tried to shutdown in Clean Boot and Safe Mode but the problem remains the same. Then I have run System File Checker, but no problem found.

Shutdown problems like this are usually associated with either malware, software, or drivers. Since you just formatted it your problem lies in either the software on the system or the drivers you are using, one or the other is not shutting down and causing the system to hang.  Unless you have the patience to go through all the drivers and software and testing to see which one is hanging the system the easiest solution is to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop that will force all programs to close.

 

Just right click an open space on the desktop and select New -> Shortcut.  In the box type   %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe –f    then click next, name it shutdown.  This command forces the closure of any software that might be running. When you are ready to shutdown just click the shortcut.   If this works your problem is solved.

My Windows Vista shuts down but monitor as well as motherboard does not get power off. One "_" cursor blinks on the monitor and all fans of CPU boxes run.

There were reports of problems in Vista with the Power Settings in Control Panel.  Sometimes changing from Balanced to Performance fixed the problem on some PCs.  Below is another solution that I had listed in my tech notes.

 

Control Panel -> Power Settings. Click “Change plan settings” below the preferred plans you select. Click “Change advanced power settings”. Expand “Power buttons and lid”. Double-click “Power button action” and choose Shut down. Double-click “Start menu power button” and choose Shut down.
