The system reboots automatically and tells me windows shut down unexpectedly. I just upgraded to windows 7 yesterday. I was always able to backup with windows vista home premium 64-bit. I have tried to format the hard drive but the computer does the same thing, that is shuts down, and i get the same message. When i ran windows advisor it told me this drive was compatible with windows 7. What is my solution?

Computer Randomly Shuts Down

I checked the "similar questions" options and didn't none of the solutions seemed to apply to me, so here goes!:So i've had this computer for a while now (i would say about two years). It's a home-built made by a computer-savvy friend of mine and it's been fantastic. It still has high marks in everything but my hard drive. I'm some-what of a gamer, and it's been running games incredibly well. So i decided to move to taiwan to teach english. I really didn't want to miss out on pc gaming for a year(+), so i brought this sucker with me.

I get to my apartment - no 3-prong outlets!  Get a cheap 2-to-3 prong adapter, buy a fancy new screen, and voila, computer seems to be working!  It made the flight with me! (Yes, i had to check it, i had the airline people put tons of "fragile" stickers on it, but that was probably mistake number one, even though i had the original box, and even though i still tried to keep it from getting damaged by putting in other clothes to hopefully brace the shocks. Nyway, so i'm listening to some itunes, for about an hour and then suddenly. Shut down. Oh well, i'll just turn it on.

Itunes. Shut down. I plug in my first-video-gen ipod to update new songs and what not? Shut down. I also brought my laptop here with me so after several more instances of random shut down, i focus on my laptop, and say goodbye until i can bring it to a repair shop or something in the states or have someone with computer knowledge take a look at it. My laptop dies (it was old and had some liquid damage that i guess finally killed it). So now i have to use my desktop. Hey, it's been working ok, even updating my ipod with no problems!

Oh wait, unless i'm playing music at the same time as updating it. So i just don't do that anymore! My computer-savvy friend recommends that i get a diagnostic program to see why i'm having problems. I get this thing called sisoftware sandra lite 2010 from cnet after reading their enthusiastic review. I start up the program and it starts checking. Something. I can't remember, had to do with running calculations and the computer shuts off.

Almost immediately after the test starts. I download and install starcraft 2. Successfully!  "Wow it stayed on long enough to complete it without shutting down! Maybe it's better!"Try to play starcraft 2 - shuts down. Damn! What is wrong with my computer! I see that the little icon at the bottom right has a red x circle on it. I click on it for the first time. "Troubleshoot a problem with your computer. "Oh, might that fix the problem?"Your computer might be encountering a memory problem. " Hmm, hopefully because that's easy to fix, right? Just buy new memory!So i let the windows memory diagnostic test do it's thing.

It restarts the computer and "oo, that's a new thing" the test starts. 1%. 2%. Shut down!So. Is it my memory? If it was my memory wouldn't the test finish?Is it my cpu?  There is a big fan covering the cpu and it moved slightly after the flight.could that have affected the processor?Is it the fact that it's not technically grounded even though it's plugged into a seemingly ok power strip?Is it something else? The motherboard? The fact that it's 110v here and not the us standard 120v?I've also noticed that i can browse the internet ok, but if i try to full-screen a video, it shuts down! 

But if i don't full screen the video, there are no problems. It's also really hot and humid here, and i don't have air conditioning yet. Is it overheating? This case is a coolermaster cosmos, it's supposed to be pretty good at keeping everything cool what is going on!?

Monitor Shuts Off But Computer Remains On

Not sure if this is under the right topic, sorry. Well, the monitor will just shut off after booting up the pc. When i bootup in safe mode, the problem still occurs, although it took a longer time for it to turn off. Everything is still running though. This just started happening today. Right now, it seems to be okay, though it took a while before i was able to start it up normally. Several times before, when i tried to boot up, it refused to turn on. The graphics card fan would be on at its highest speed but won't become quiet again, as its supposed to. I had to turn off the main power at the back and wait awhile before i could start it up.

Could it be graphics related? Right now, using speedfan it says my gpu is at 57 c, which is hotter than normal. Also my cpu is at 40c, when its usually at 30 - 35. Usually my com is extremely cool, though i don't use liquid cooling and the room isn't air conditioned. So i don't understand why its suddenly like this.

Or is it a virus? Problem started when my sis tried to change her wallpaper. She said she just clicked on the photo and then the monitor shut off. Virus? Or coincidence? Need your help on this asap :) im using intel core i7 920, overclocked to 3. 2ghz. Asus rampage ii extreme mobo. Expertvision 8800gt sonic.coolermaster storm scout chassis. Windows 7 ultimate.

Floppy Drive Shuts Down Computer

I own a 2005 dell 8400 xp, it did not come with a floppy drive. When i purchased my designer i embroidery unit it required floppies. I ordered a small floppy drive and plugged it in a usb port. For the past couple of years this had worked fine. Now when i plug it in the computer acts as though something is attacking it and shuts down. I use frontier "peace of mind" for my troubleshooting and what not and they told me that when windows did an upgrade it must have down something to no longer recognize the floppy drive and suggested i call dell. Since my computer is no longer under warranted they wouldn't hep me. What can i do?

Computer Shuts Down After Awake From Sleep Mode

I just built a new computer with an asus p7p55d premium motherboard. When i try to wake the computer from sleep mode (i've tried both s1 and s3 sleep modes in the bios), the fans start to run and the motherboard leds turn on, but then the computer just powers off. I then have to turn the computer back on, wait for the bios to load, and then i get the "windows was shut down unexpectedly. Start windows normally or safe mode?" Prompt.

I've tried changing all of the settings i can think of in the windows 7 power options, as well as in the asus bios menu. A friend of mine said it might have to do with acpi settings, but it doesn't seem to change anything when i enable or disable them in the bios.could it possibly be a physical hardware problem? Does anyone have any ideas?

Moving Drive With Win 7 To Backup Computer Without Activation

I would like to come up with a way to provide a full backup computer to my customers (offline, process control application). Currently doing this with winxp and a hot-swap raid-1 enclosure. If anything in computer1 dies, can quickly move the cables and the drive over to computer2, boot up and keep running. Now moving to windows 7, more strict activation issues. Getting a separate windows license for each computer is not a problem, but how to either change the license key easily after the swap, or avoid activation altogether?

Typical system is offline, possibly abroad and would like to make the fail-over as easy as possibly for customers. Currently using oem license but open to other ideas. Have tested with retail copy of windows 7 pro and get 3-days to activate after moving to backup computer, same as oem. Would volume licensing help me here? Other ideas?

Monitor Shuts Off

My computer monitor keeps shutting off on me. I have a dell inspiron b130 (i know it is kinda old) but i don't think its a hardware issue. It has started happening since i installed windows 7. At first i thought it was because my original product key didn't work, but i did the automated phone activation, and validated on the website, but it still shuts off. If i don't use my computer for awhile, it may stay on for a good 20 mins or so, but once it shuts off once, the time it stays on gets less and less. But, i just close the lid and open it back up and it works again. Any ideas as to what is going on?!?

Display Shuts Off When Pc Unplugged

I upgraded my asus 1005pe netbook from windows 7 starter to windows 7 enterprise. Everything worked fine. Did the online updates and now when i unplug the netbook, the display goes black. The computer does not shut down, the display just goes away and comes back when the unit is plugged back in. If i boot the computer in "safe" mode there is not a problem. The display stays on whether it is plugged in or not. Windows is the only program currently loaded on this machine. I have another asus 1005hab netbook with windows 7 enterprise loaded that this does not happen on.

Screen Saver Does Not Work - Display Never Shuts Off

The screen saver never works and the display never shuts off. How do i fix this? I have no idea how to make the screen saver work or get the display to automatically shut off. The preview for the screen saver doesn't even work. Everything i've read said this is typically because of a wireless mouse, but i do not have a wireless mouse or anything else attached to my laptop.

Backup Failed, Backup Drive No Longer Detected

Windows 7 kept bugging me about creating a backup, so i finally decided to. I chose to backup the default items onto my d: drive. I let it run, left for a bit and came back. It failed at 70ish%. Tried again. Same thing. I didn't have a whole lot of time left so i decided to just forget it.

I deleted the incomplete backup files on my d: drive (there was a c: backup file and mediaid. Bin) since there seemed to be no use for incomplete backup files.

When i got home and turned on my computer, post took longer than usual. My sata 2 drive was undetected. Sata 2 = my d drive. When windows starts to boot, it freezes when the windows animation is doing it's thing. I tried repairing and restoring from previously known good configuration and still nothing. I used my win7 disk to check for problems, and i even used that to restore to a point prior to my failed backups.

What else could i try? Why would my d: drive suddenly be undetected in bios, and why would a failed backup cause my windows installation to freeze? Edit: i unplugged the data cable from my d: drive and now windows boots. So deleting backup files royally screwed up my d: drive?

Dell Datasafe Local Backup Vs Windows Backup

I recently purchased a dell desktop with windows 7. One of the first things i did was configure all of my back-upsettings / schedule in windows. I used the recommended windows default settings in regards to what data is being backed up and set my back-up location to an attached external wd drive. All seems to be working fine. That said this machine also has dell factory installed back up software (dell datasafe local back-up) that does it's thing and backs up data to a partition on the "c" drive. My question is if i've set up windows to back up my data to an external drive do i even need the dell datasafe local back up program at all? The concern is this program is using space on my c drive and if the c drive were to crash having the back up info on it seems kind of pointless to me anyway.

Win 7 Backup

I have several questions in regards to backing up data & system image from a a new windows 7 laptop to an external hard drive.

First, after loading my data files and applications to the new machine, i used the control panel>system and security>backup route to backup everything to an external hard drive. This backup failed due to the fact that i had created a new library called my work that i had created for containing my professional files (i.e. Autocad drawings, word documents). Once i moved my professional files to one of the factory libraries, and deleted the new library folder i had created, the backup process succeeded. Why is this, and what is the point of being able to create a new library if it causes the backup process to fail?

Second, when attempting to perform a subsequent backup a week later, this backup failed because the external hard drive i was backing up to apparently was not big enough. However, i was backing up approximately 140 gb of used space from the computer's 450 gb internal hard drive to an external 300 gb hard drive that had received the previous successful (and failed) backups from the week before, also of about the same size transfers. Is the backup process not incremental, or due i have to purge the external hard drive before each backup to create the space for a new backup?

Must i delete previous windows 7 backup from my external hard drive to create space for new back, or will new backup write over previous backup?

Microsoft Backup

I am new to windows 7. I have recently bought a video camera and after editing the videos end up in the videos library. I have set my computer to back up weekly using the automatic backup system on the computer but for some reason it will not backup the videos - comes up 'xxxxxx path not found'. If i take the videos out of the library the back up works perfectly and i then back the videos up manually but i am curious as to why i cannot back them up using the automated system - would it be because the file sizes are too large?

So - beginning to start the upgrade and it says in instructions specifically do not use windows complete pc backup program from the back up and restore center to create your personal date file backups.

Backup Is Slow

I have been backing up my files for almost 5 hours now! It's on its second dvd now and is at 61%. The percentage does move but very slowly! Why is it taking so long? Is there a problem or something, and if there is how do i fix it? Thanks everyone!Edit: i just got the following message when it was 63% complete: "windows backup found errors on the media while saving a backup on it and cannot use it for additional backups" then it asked me to put in another dvd, which i did.

Now it has continued backing up and is at 63% still. Ok, so how did it find errors on the dvd, when it was a brand new dvd? So should i still keep that dvd? I have been having issues with windows backup for the past 2-3 months and its really annoying!

Backup So Slow

I have a brand new dell pc (intel i7 processor) running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. (Oem)
I have about 350gb of data that i have transfered onto the new pc. I have tried running windows 7 backup to two different external drives. It seems to take 24 or more hours to run a backup with windows 7.

On my old pc with vista it took 3-4 hours to backup the same data to the same drives
I can drag and copy files to a portable drive in about 3 hours

Here is what i did:
External drive shows 99% free space.
Ran error check on both pc and external drive.
Used settings for automatic fix file system error as well as attempt recover of bad sector.

Pc is running normally.
Power state is normal.
No other programs running.
Logged in as administrator  (i have no other uses. Just me as administrator)
Opened windows 7 backup.
Select "let me choose" what to back up.
Chose local disk "c" and "include a system image" box
Executed backup

This process should take a few hours, not a day.

What else can i try to speed up the windows 7 backup process?
