Restart And Shut Down Problems After Upgrade


I used a toshiba upgrade disk ($35) to upgrade from vista to windows 7. Now, any time i use "lock", "sleep" , "hibernate", close down the lid, or simply "shut down" it has become harder & harder to restart my laptop. Its a disaster & i think that the windows 7 upgrade is to blame. On restart, i'm getting a message that windows didn't shut down properly (even when it was) if suggests "checking one of my disks for inconsistency" but fails to start the process & advises me to restore my system to an earlier date which i'v tried on numerous occasions. It shows an error reference number 766f6c756d652a63. I've tried numerous sites to try & solve this problem without success. I've also noted scores of people on these sites who have had problems after upgrading to windows 7.

Dell Printer Goes Offline After Shut Down / Restart

I have a netgear 802. 11g wireless router with an hp 6840 printer & a dell mfp 1600n printer attached via ethernet cables. My various macintosh, windows xp and vista computers have been printing to these printers via wireless connections without problems for the last several years.

I got a new lenovo t410 notebook, with windows 7, in january 2010. I can install both remote printers on this system, and then print to them via the wireless router. However, when i shut-down or restart the t410, the 1600n printer shows up as "offline". I must then "remove" this printer, and re-install it (via "add printer") on the t410. It seems to lack "persistence" across a system restart with the windows 7 system. The hp printer works fine, showing "ready" status after a restart. Both printers work fineafter shut-downs and restarts on the mac, xp and vista systems. I use a static ip address for the 1600n, and have the latest windows 7 driver from dell.

One other piece of data: during the "add printer" process, the hp printer is automatically discovered, i select it, and then add it. The dell printer is not discovered, and i have to add it as a tcp/ip address, "generic device", of type "dell network printer", then specifically "dell mfp laser 1600n". Any ideas would be appreciated - lenovo and delltech support refuse to help troubleshoot- both say it is a microsoft problem.

Laptop Screen Doesn't Restart After Shut Off To Save Energy

I have a 2 weeks old lenovo laptop g460. When i leave the laptop alone it'll shut off the screen as a energy saving option but the screen doesn't restart when i get back to it. I've tried pressing esc, power button, ctrl+alt+del, clicked the mouse, the mouse pad, the screen on fn +f2 but nothing will restart the screen unless i do a forced shutdown and startup again. Sometimes i leave the laptop alone to do disk defrag using mydefrag, i am worried about system instability in the long run in addition to the sheer inconvenience it causes. Any idea how to resolve this?

Restart Loop

I did a windows update and restarted my pc as instructed and the pc just keeps restarting. I tried to boot to safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, and last known good configuration and it still loops. I finally chose not to restart after failure and got a blue screen that read "stop: c000021a {fatal system error}

The windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x 0000135 (0x 00000000  0x 00000000) the system has been shut down. "

Problem With Restart

Windows 7 will not restart. When ever i try to restart my computer it shuts down and sits at a blank screen that will not do anything. I am not sure why this is happening obviously but i need some help i will try to provide more information in the proceeding text the best i can but if i do not explain it to your satisfaction please leave your e-mail or send me one so we can solve the problem. I had windows vista for about 6 months then i upgraded to 7.

After that when i restart the computer it will not complete the restart. It sits at a black screen and i have to hold the power button in order to restart it. I haven't tried much because i have never had a problem with this before also i have never heard of this problem. My laptop is a gateway that was pre-installed with windows vista so if this is a conversion issue with windows 7 and gateway that information would be helpful.

Everything Changes On System Restart

Ok, i came home today to find my computer did a restart after an update. Everything on my desktop changes, icons are rearranged, fonts different. All around a mess. This also happens if i do a shut down re-start. I have a hard time seeing, so i change the icons, fonts to the size i can see and this changes. To much time to sit and re-change everything back. I saved the theme i created, the desktop wallpaper does not change, just everything else. Toolbar, and sizes of everything.colors change also to the. Everything goes back to original settings. Just upgraded to windows 7 pro after a crash of hard drive. Everything going great until this.

Update Restart Popup

First up - i don't know where best to leave feedback for microsoft so i'm going to post it hear for now and hopefully (if i'm wrong someone can tell me where i should have posted my comments).
Second - before anyone complains that my post is about vista and this is a windows 7 forum - i'm sorry, but trail of links i followed to arrive here was.

Windows forums -> (show all vista forums) -> windows update

And that brought me here? So, i have a suggestion about the way the windows update restart dialog should work. What i'm talking about, in case i'm not clear, is the tool-tip type window that appears down by the system tray when windows update has finished installing some updates. The pop-up reminds you that you need to restart your pc before the changes will take effect and gives you two options, restart now or postpone.

What's very annoying, and needs fixing, is that the pop-up grabs focus, and more annoyingly, the buttons have short-cut keys associated with them. Now this scenario doesn't happen every-time i get new updates, but today's incident was not the first time, picture this.

1, i'm writing an email, i can type quite quickly, so keys are being pressed at a fair old rate.

2, windows update finishes installing the latest patches and flashes up a pop-up which grabs the focus.

3, i had no warning this was about to happen, and seeing as the buttons on the pop-up have keyboard short-cuts, it's a lottery as to whether i accidentally press the short-cut for restart or the one for postpone whilst typing my email. As you can probably tell, today it was restart!

Normally, i would just curse microsoft and get back to it (once my pc had re-started).
However, seeing as the current tv marketing campaign for windows 7 features some random bloke in the gym claiming to have submitted an idea to microsoft and they implemented it, i thought i'd try and get my idea included. Perhaps this has already been fixed in windows 7 - in which case this has all been a complete waste of time! (Sorry).

Like i said at the start, if anyone knows where i can go to make product improvement suggestions to microsoft, please let me know and i'll re-post it somewhere else.

Sound Turned Off Upon Restart

Whenever i restart windows 7 (ultimate), the volume settings of windows 7 have been turned completely off. Therefore, every time i restart windows 7, i have to go down to the lower right-hand corner of the screen (to the volume icon) and turn on the volume once again. This happens every time i restart windows 7. What might be going on? I'm running the latest version of avg antivirus, by the way, and there are no viruses showing up on my system.

Internet Connection Lost On Restart

I've just installed windows 7, after having windows xp installed for the last 8 years. Everything is more or less good, however i have an internet connectivity issue (which i did not have in windows xp - so can't blame modem/router for that). Every time i would restart my computer (restart/shut down and turn back on - same thing) i would lose the connection to the internet. The network icon on the bottom right would have a warning sign on it. The way i have found to solve this is to unplug the network cable and plug it back in, which causes the connection to reappear correctly.
 
I have asus p5n32-e sli motherboard and have installed the drivers that came with it after windows 7 installation, i have then updated the drivers to what was recommended by windows 7 in the update service - that is when the issue began i believe.

Blank Screen On Restart With A Cursor Blinking

I have a inspiron 1545 and when i restart with a verizon wireless modem plugged in to a usb port & it gives me a blank screen with a cursor blinking in the top left corner. When i pull it out on restart it boots. However, when i start it with it plugged in it works fine. I know the problem is my computer because my wife has the same 1545 and no problem. I can work around by pulling it, on restart but it seems my computer has a problem.

Also, upon further testing it is not the verizon wireless modem only , that hanged up restart. It is the fact i have 2 modems plugged in. The other is a wireless logitech mouse. When i take either out restart works. So with both plugged in restart goes to a blank screen & when i only have one of them plugged in restart works. I have disabled the usb on boot sequence and it had no effect. Any ideas?

Aero Is Disabled Every Time Computer Restart

This started happening a few days ago. Aero was working fine, then i restarted after installing a program and aero was disabled. I ran the troubleshooter and it fixed the problem, telling me that windows desktop manager had been disabled. I turned off my pc and thought everything was good until i turned it on again the next day. Aero worked for about 2 seconds then was off again. I checked wdm in services, and it was reportedly enabled and running without error. So i ran the aero troubleshooter again and got the same message about wdm and it fixed aero. So i restarted my pc again. Aero was off again. This time i re-installed my ati drivers (i have radeon hd 4870) and checked catalyst for any conflicting settings, and restarted: aero was off. Then i uninstalled the program (easeus partition manager) that i had installed just before the issue came up, restarted wdm (aero worked), and restarted: aero was off. What's going on? Some regedit i need to add/remove? Or some property of wdm i need to change for it to work properly? Or some start-up process i need to block?

I suppose a last-ditch effort would be to doa system restore, but i've modified a lot of themes and programs since aero started screwing up and it would take hours to re-install and re-adjust my system. I don't really want to do that. Right now it's just easier to spend 15 seconds running the troubleshooter every time i start windows 7.

Shared Usb Printer Won't Print Until Pc Restart

I have an hp color laserjet 1600 printer hooked up to my windows 7 x64 system via usb. Printing from the local machine is just fine.

However, when i add the shared printer to another machine in my homegroup and print to it, the job shows up in the print queue (visible from both the originating system as well as the machine to which the printer is hooked up) but nothing prints. Attempting to delete the print job just changes the status to "deleting" but the job is never removed from the queue. When the system (to which the printer is hooked up) is restarted, the job prints (even if a delete was attempted).

Specifics:
Machine 1: windows 7 x64 with usb laserjet 1600 (with both x64 and x86 drivers available).
Directly connected to linksys router.

Machine 2: windows 7 x86 with laserjet 1600 x86 drivers installed.
Wireless connection to linksys router.

None of this behavior was observed when we were using vista x64 and x86 on the two machines.

Windows Will Not Shut Down

Since installing all my drivers and programs on ultimate 64 windows will not shut down. If i try to restart or shut down it just sits there on the logging off screen forever. There is occasional disk activity. I've tried safe mode and windows shuts down perfectly fine. So i can only assume its a driver of some system setting causing the problem, all the drivers are the latest and are also used on a dual boot vista system.

Pc Will Not Shut Down Completely

I have setup a dual boot system, xp & 7, on two separate hard drives. Everything was working fine for a couple of weeks. I am not sure what suddenly caused the problem but windows 7 will no longer shut down completely on its own. It spins at the shutting down screen. I have to hold to power button in to get the computer to shut down. I have tried restoring the computer to an earlier version without success. I have closed the anti-virus program and all other programs. I have also stopped unnecessary processes. It still will not shut down automatically. Windows xp still runs fine and shut down completely on its own.

Pc Will Not Sleep Or Shut Down

My computer will not shut down or sleep, i am running windows 7 64-bit on an hp pavillion slimline. When i click either of these options it tells me it is going to sleep or shutting down, but the actual computer never does.

So for the past couple of days i been trying to fix this problem and it seems i cant do it on my own.

Pc Restarts Each Time I Try To Shut Down

I've looked through the forums to see if i could find a solution to this issue, but the most i've been able to find is that there might be an incompatible driver somewhere on my system that's causing this to occur. When i click on "shut down", the computer does shut down, but then it turns back on after a few seconds. I had a clean install of windows 7 ultimate (64-bit)done on the computer to wipe everything off of it and start from scratch, and this still occurs. My computer is an mpc clientpro 424. I've tried disabling automatic restart, and the issue still occurs. Can anyone help?

Pc Will Not Shut Down And Explorer Crashing

Hey, so when i try to shut down my computer it just gets stuck on the shutting down screen and i have to switch it off by holding down the power button. I'm fairly sure this is because the system cannot end certain processes but i don't know which ones. At first i thought it was itunes because it wouldn't open but would start a process that wouldn't shut down. Then i got it uninstalled and it hasn't helped. Now the other problem, maybe related? When i right click on the desktop explorer crashes (not ie). It doesn't just shut off but stops responding. For some reason i can still use the taskbar and start menu (i thought that was part of explorer). And my computer is constantly running at 100% cpu usage. Its an hp laptop running windows 7 and has had windows on it for at least a couple months running fine.
