On my laptop i cant shut it down. its windows home SP2. the laptop perfoms fantasicly but when i shutdown it logs of then goes to the shut down screen and sits there untill the battery runs out..... i have to either hold down the power button at this stage ot take out the battery... any ideas?
but i have already checked the system logs and there is nothing there.
This is quite common. A full Windows reinstall should fix it (that's what I do when my laptop stops automatically shutting down), but once it's finished the shut down process, you won't damage it by pressing down the power button to switch it off.
Reinstalling windows will solve the problem, but if you really don't want to do that, you could try a series of actions, that have a very slim chanche to actually fix it, but nevertheless, a chanse,
1. Delete any unwanted programs
2. DOwnload and run regseeker to clean your registrry
3. Defrag your HDD
Possibility of these to actually work: minimal, but give it a try(especially the second one).
ok thanks guys....
i will give that a try now and post back to once done to tell you the news...
Then it probably has something to do with your bluetooth... Try closing it, deleting the drivers, and see if your computer shuts down correctly...
Check it, and tells us the results
