Cpu Tries To Shutdown


Just switched to windows 7 and im starting to notice that my pc is starting to trying to shutdown . Its giving off the the noise it usually makes when it shutdowns like every hour but doesn't really shutdown . I have changed the power setting to never shutdown. It never did this when i was using windows xp so it somewhat seeming very strange. I looked up some info on the internet but that said it may be synchronization with my pc clock but that's not the case.

I have opened it to make sure everything was still running fine and of course they are but the continuous  shutdown noise is bothering me still. My board  is windows 7 compatible. Oh im am running windows 32 bit version if that helps. Any info on how to solve my problem would be greatly appreciated ty for your time drm my pc specs intel core i5 650 3. 20gh biostar th55b hdgskill  ddr3 1300 single channel 4gb ram evga 8400gs 512mb ddr2 graphic card

Repeated Shutdown Pc To Tv

1. I think my pc cannot find the tv.

2. The pc (win 7) shuts down quickly four times and recovers quickly four times, then goes to a blue screen (with a lot of text).

3. The blue screen last just a moment, if fact i cannot read the text.

4. Then the pc reboots and ask if "i want to reboot in regular (or safe) mode).

5. The steps above then repeat, except maybe one out of ten times it finds the tv and all is right with my pc to tv world. What to do?

Cannot Shutdown After Upgrade

I've upgraded my nec notebook (versa s9100) from vista business to window 7 ultimate. After upgrading, the notebook does not shut down completely. The power light indicates that the power is on and i have to hold the power button down to cut power. When it starts up again, it will say that the computer was not shut down properly.

I can hibernate the computer but when it starts up, i get the recovery page where i have the option to start in safe mode, etc. I select "start windows normally" and it works ok. I tried doing the clean boot as suggested by other forums but it did not resolve the problem.

I realized that i forgot to turn off my avast anti-virus when i did the upgrade. Would that have affected the upgrade?

Abnormal Program Shutdown

When i close an email in outlook (2007), the whole outlook program closes; same with word docs. Not just ms office programs, this happens in other programs as well - eg copernic agent professional: close down a search and the whole program exits!Have run both virus and malware checks but nothing there. Only other possible clue is that the mouse pointer appears unduly sensitive (but can see nothing in control panel to reduce sensitivity). Am using single mouse click. Any assistance appreciated . . .

Shutdown Button Sometimes Deactivated

I have a problem with windows 7 professional 64 bit. Sometimes the shutdown button is deactivated, i can see the button but can't click on it. Only with ctrl+alt+del it's possible to shutdown, log off etc. The error appears randomly so sometimes it works, and i can shutdown, log off etc. With clicking the button. It isn't a user-right based error because i have the problem with admin rights and also with normal user rights. I don't have a policy running where the shutdown button is deactivated. I installed the os with help of the waik tools, sysprep and a unattend.xml file but i don't set anything like this in the unattend file. Does somebody have any idea what it could be?

Shutdown Errors & Support

This seems to be a recurring theme on all the win 7 forums, the machine won't shut down properly. Select shut down, screens goes to the "shutting down" view, but the circle icon freezes after a few seconds and the machine hangs.

When i reboot, windows does not report a failure, it just boots normally and works fine, but come shut down, problems again.

This is happening everytime i use the machine, though sometimes i get the odd bsod thrown in at shut down as well, just for good measure.

I have used the internal checking within win 7 to try to find the issue, but nothing works, i don't want to have to re-install win 7 ultimate, a couple of weeks after installing it, but that is looking like the only option and that is not guaranteed to fix the issue.

I have tried to contact microsoft through their online "help & support" forum, but they say my version of win 7 ultimate is not activated (yes it is), then when i enter my product code, it says because i am not registered, i have to pay Ł45 for 1 hour of support.

Me pay them to have them fix a problem with their software! I thought vista was bad, this is just vista 1. 5 with bugs, should l have stuck to vista.

Anybody got any ideas on what is causing this, as lots of people are seeing this issue, yet no support answers seem to give a resolution

System specs are

Win 7 ultimate
Quad core processer
6gb of ram
2 x 512mb nvidia graphic cards working in sli mode
2 x 1tb sata hdd
28" hd monitor

Win7 Random Shutdown

I am using win 7 ultimate 32 bit, upgraded over vista home premium 32 bit. My laptop is randomly shutting down, it never done it while i had vista installed. It is not going in to sleep mode or anything similar, as some have suggested, it completely shuts down with no warning but can be booted up straight away. The only time i can make it happen for sure is when i run the windows experience index, it gets near to the end and then shuts down. I used to be able to run the wei before so i don't know why it does it now.

Any ideas as this is really annoying me?

Update At Shutdown Hangs Up

Os: win 7 home premium 64 bit oem installed on zt 1. 5t desktop
Service pack level:  do not know. Machine is 2 weeks old and have seen 3-5 successful updates at shutdown time.

Few weeks ago bought a quad-core zt machine that came with win 7 home premium 64 bit os and a 1. 5t hd. Have been very happy with the unit, and have seen some 3 or 4 updates at shutdown with the usual banner "please do not power off or unplug your computer; installing update 1 of x. "  So, would happily head to bed and could hear the unit shut down in five minutes or so.

Not so last evening (fri, feb 26). Saw the update screen at 11 pm, and still there as of 10 am this morning. Yes, can see some sporadic hard disk activity, and the spinning cursor.

Any idea what may be happening, and more importantly how can i break out of the update, bring to a place where i can continue my work?

Btw, have two other win 7 systems that did not have the update last evening: a netbook running home premium 32bit, and a dell desktop running win 7 ultimate. All three are on a home win 7 network.

Instant Shutdown Using Flash Player

I upgraded to windows 7 professional 32-bit a couple months ago from windows xp on my gateway laptop. I don't know why my computer keeps shutting down everytime i play either a video or games mainly using adobe flash player. This always happens while doing any flash applets, surfing the web, and playing games on my computer. It will freeze up for about a second and then just shut off completely to immediate power off.

It won't even allow me to restart right after it shut downs. The computer will act like it's going to restart & then shut down again a few times. I have to wait about 10-15 minutes to be able to restart it. I have uninstalled & reinstalled flash player, restored the computer to a previous state, made sure that all my drivers are updated & even tried to the system recovery/troubleshoot in windows 7. This only started after i upgraded.

Install Update On Reboot, Not On Shutdown

I have a question that i thought microsoft would have thought about and implemented years ago. When there is updates for windows that needs to be installed, why do microsoft only have the option to install these on a shut down? If there is any updates you get 2 options.

1. Shut down the computer and install updates.

2. Install the updates and hope that the update doesn't require you to reboot.

What i want is this.

1. The option to install updates when i reboot my pc because then i can install the updates if i go away for a while and the computer are updated, rebooted and ready to be used again when i get back. Even if the update doesn't require a reboot this feature would appreciated. Murphys law apples here. If you don't have the time to reboot after installing updates a reboot is required. If you do have time a reboot isn't required. And even if a reboot isn't required there is no harm done if i choose to reboot and install updates.

2. The option not to install updates when i want to shut down my pc. Sometimes i might just want to shut down the computer without having to install the update because i'm in a hurry. I don't want to have to wait for the updates to install before i can take my computer with me.

Bsod - Usbhub.sys On Shutdown / Hibernate

A few days ago my computer with a recently installed windows 7 build 7100 start getting a bsod every single time i shut it down, restarted it or set it to hibernate. I've tried updating all ubs drivers in device manager but they were all up to date and didn't help. I tried restarting it with not a single usb device plugged in. I normally only have a usb mouse and sometimes a exhd or ipod plugged in, standard stuff. I tried doing my own research for the problem elsewhere but couldn't find any answer.

I also tried windows update and installed these three new optional updates but that failed to make any difference either. What other information do you need about my computer to diagnose the problem?

After An Accidental Shutdown The 32-bit Program Flickers

Dreamweaver 8 worked fine for the first few days on my windows 7 computer. Oddly the companion program, fireworks, is just fine. I accidentally hit the power strip and turned the computer off. Since then it it won't open. When i try to open it, it flickers on, then disappears. Same thing happens when i try to get the 8. 02 patch from macromedia.

Yes, it's an older version, but i am reluctant to buy cs4 since it's not quite compatible and they're coming out with cs5 sometime this year. Does the flickering signal something worse with my computer? Any way to get this 32-bit program running again?

Forced Shutdown - Anti Virus Issues

I have a new laptop with win7-hp. This was my stupidity, but since i had 1 license remaining, i tried to install bit defender 2009 on the machine. (Learned later that there is no compatibility with 2009). The machine slowed to a crawl, and then i had to force shutdowns (maybe three times) before i got smart and used msconfig to disable bd at start which allow me to uninstall bd.

The machine runs fine now, but i get trend micro notifications saying because of the forced shut downs, the trend updates are not taking. Would appreciate any help. Does windows have any built-in diagnostic capabilities other than defrag (which i ran) to help with this?

Blue Screen Memory Dump During Shutdown

So i am setting up windows 7 enterprise 32-bit in a computer lab, and most of the time when i perform a shutdown or restart i get a blue screen memory dump. I think it has something to do with an apple software product as the problem started showing up after i installed itunes and quicktime. I tried uninstalling all of the apple software and deleted all i could find in program files, but it has made no difference. I tried installing a hotfix that was said to fix this problem, but it didn't. (404160_intl_i386) my blue screen info is: stop:0x0000000a (0x8ac65bf0, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8286f1b9)

Shutdown Hangs / Internet Would Drop Out Randomly

Okay for a while i've had what appeared to be two separate problems with 7:

1) the internet would drop out randomly (it would show the little triangle sign over the bars in the corner). Clicking on the small icon shows the box as usual but any attempt to connect/disconnect, refresh has no effect. On a couple of occasions after clicking a few time is tells me that explorer.exe needs to be restarted (or words to that effect). In any case restarting it just replaces the little triangle with the spinning circle - which last for as long as the computer is left on. In both cases no connection to the internet is possible. I have troubleshooted numerous times to no success, checked all my passwords and thats fine and i can see no discernible pattern in these drop-outs.

2) the second problem i was having was shutdown hangs. It would process everything as normal and then hang where it says 'windows shutting down', i believe. I checked my motherboard (an asus) and corrected that and the problem seemed to have gone away.

Eventually though it reappeared and i relaised that whenever the internet dropped out the computer would hang at shutdown. Now whenever the internet drops out i have to force it to shutdown and restart the computer again. When the internet drops out, as far as i'm aware, every program works fine (such as word etc. ) I just can't connect to the internet or shutdown the computer.

To summarise:

1) internet drops out (happens regardless of internet connection) showing yellow triangle icon
2) computer won't shutdown after this has happened.

I've searched these forums to no avail, so does anyone out there have any ideas what this could be?

Bsod After New Cpu

I've been looking and haven't seen anything on this topic, but if there is, sorry, didn't see it.
Anyways, i have been getting bsods every 2-4 hours ever since i installed my new processor. I cannot imagine why, but it happens, always saying usb_bugcode. As far as i am concerned the machine runs perfect; everything is fast, including games at 60 fps at least, would probably be even more when my 9800 gt gets back from repair (using a backup 8600 gt while it does). Anyways, people are saying it is my memory, however, like i said, everything is perfect besides the bsods and the occasional install error code.

I find it hard to believe that my 4gbs of ram, which by the way i found no errors on with memtest86 or windows memory diagnostics, suddenly became corrupted right on the minute when i installed my processor, not to mention the speed at which my computer runs. Would anyone know if the graphics card is doing this? Is its vram corrupt? Or is the computer just going mental because i installed a new cpu suddenly? I did format the hdd and reinstalled, so i know it's not viruses. The cpu is an e8400 @ 3. 00 ghz core 2 duo, 4gb of ram, an old 8600 gt, running windows 7 x64.

Cpu Goes Up To 100%

I have upgraded from win xp to win 7 , with cpu intel celeron d 2. 53 ghz, 1gb ddr2 ram, nvidia geforce 6200 , via vt8237 sata , via rhineii lan and cmedia cmi9761 ac97 audio codec. After updating most of the drivers individually from the different manufacture , the computer become better in performance, however, it is 4 % cpu when idle and 100% when opening any one of the programs , such as word, ie8, etc and doing virus scan by kaspersky.

Notice that , i can not complete the virus scan as it shows messages insufficient memory after 3 hours scanning and then stops the scan. Also , the cmi9761 has no drivers updated for windows 7.
Do not know whether the single core cpu is the problem or the 1g ram is not enough.

Why Is Cpu Overloading?

I have newly upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit version. I also added a new sata drive and a new floppy drive (needed it for a specific job). It took days to get the sata drive working properly but it seems fine now. My problem: as often as once a minute the cpu use goes to 100%. At that point everything freezes and i have to sit and wait for some of the cpu to clear. I haven't timed it but the wait is approximately 1-2 minutes. This happens apparently randomly, and it happens a lot.

I have watched the task manager's processes tab and an on screen cpu meter (a gadget). Only two processes ever go high. One is a game. The other is something called "system idle process". I have no idea what that is or what it does. I am watching the processes in task manager right now. To add to the confusion, the system idle process is up to 97 but cpu usage has remained at 1-4%. Can anyone out there give me information about how to track the cause down?

Cpu Frequency Goes To Zero

I've been running windows 7 64 bit on my hp hdx 18t laptop for months (since the rtm) and noticed that every once in awhile my computer would stop responding for a 1-2 seconds and then be back. It seems to do this randomly. Sometimes i notice it happen a couple times in a 10 minute period, sometimes once and then not again, sometimes i never notice it. After having this happen sometimes i ran the resource monitor and turns out that the cpu frequency is going to zero for a moment and then coming back. Has anyone else run into this?  

My bios and cpu drivers are up to date. When i was running vista i didn’t have this issue (i did not upgrade from vista – i did a fresh install). Seems like the occurrence increases when i run vmware.

High Cpu Usage

I have searched the forums and the internet and even contacted microsoft customer support but cannot find any help. I upgraded from vista 64-bit to windows 7 64-bit home premium a couple of months ago. I guess i was the only person that never encountered a problem with vista so i was expecting a smooth transition to windows 7. The problem that i am experiencing with my hp desktop is very high cpu usage after some random period of low usage after it is first turned on. The cpu usage goes from a few percent to high 80’s to mid 90’s and everything slows down to a crawl.

This random period can go from minutes to days. Shutting the system completely down works most of the time. When checking task manager, no processes indicate high usage at all with processes running less than a few percentages after an initial spike after starting a program.

When i check "show processes from all users", the only high cpu usage is with system idle process and nothing else. I’ve redone the upgrade couple of times and then finally bit the bullet and did a clean install, but nothing helps. I’ve kept track of the processes and the services in task manager that are running when it is in low cpu usage and after it goes into high cpu usage and nothing changes. I’ve tried too many things on my own to mention here, but would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have. My hardware specs are as follows:

Amd phenom 9550 quad-core processor 2. 2 ghz
6 gb ram
64-bit operating system
Nvidia  geforce 9100 graphics

Cpu At 100% Usage

I upgraded from vista to win 7 on release day and have had no problems until recently. Over the last few days, my cpu usage will spike up to 100% at random intervals and stay there for a long period of time. When i check task manager and show processes from all users, services.exe is fluctuating anywhere from the low 50 to low 70% in usage. When the computer is running normally, services.exe is around the high single digits. I've uninstalled and programs that i installed immediately prior to the problem happening (and it's happening again as i type this) and i've run comprehensive virus/malware scans using microsoft security essentials and the eset online scanner.

Both found some adware stuff and removed it, but no virus or serious malware issues. This has been going on for several days and has made my computer almost unusable, and i'm at a dead end for what to do or where to look next. I hate to to a reinstall because the original install was so recent, so any advice i can try to avoid starting over would be great.

Cpu Usage High

I'm a fairly experienced computer user, and have a basic understanding of computing theory. I was wanting to propose an idea about the high cpu usage in windows 7 and see if anyone with a deeper understanding could tell me if i'm looking this in the right way. Not only have i had high cpu usage, but my ram is running at a constant 50-60% as well. I have a pretty cheap setup, only running a 1. 8ghz amd athlon and 2 gb of ram. However in my laptop which only has about half the
Computing power and yet doesn't have this high usage. So here's my question.could the high usage issue be in the fact that the system bus takes up more resources to operate.

Meaning say for example, and only for example as i know it's not this simple, a 32 bit system with 2gb ram uses 512mb of ram while idling, shouldn't a 64-bit system need 1gb of ram while idling?  Again, i know that usage percentages aren't set in stone like that, but i was hoping to simplify my hypothesis/question enough for you (the readers) to understand what i'm asking. If this does sound like a reasonable suggestion, could anyone tell me how i might go about testing it in order to prove my theory. I may just be looking at the meaning of 32 and 64 bit all wrong, and if so can someone please explain it to me better?

How To Lower Cpu Usage?

I am running windows 7. I took my tower outside yesterday and blew the dust out of it. When i started it back up i noticed that my cpu indicator was hi when nothing was running. I have been noticing things have been running slow and at times my tower makes a slight reving sound. How can i lower the cpu usage. I know i need to eliminate certain apps from starting up but i wouldn't know which ones. Can you help?Task manage shows  iexplore.exe a couple of times with large numbers can i just click 'end processes'?

Cpu Is At 100% When Idle

I have had a problem the last 2 weeks. My sons pc has suddenly started to behave badly when he is playing games. The are choppy and behaves strange. The same games worked perfectly before and just a few things has been altered. When i look at the cpu it's at a constant of 70-100% and it "spikes" every second. That behavior fits the problem it the games he plays.

When i look in task manager it shows that wmiprvse.exe has two processes running. One at 35-50% and one at 10-12%. At first i uninstalled avast 5 and reinstalled mse (the problem started about the time we changed the av) but it didn't help. I have also tried process-explorer and the only thing it tells me is several "ntdll.dll!Rtluserthreadstart" within wmiprvse.exe.

I have scanned the system for viruses and also scanned for malware but my system is clean. The system works fine in itself (windows 7 ultimate retail) but the hight cpu-spikes is really noticeable when a games is played. Of-course the system is up to date with all the latest drivers and updates from wu. What can i do?
