Helpful +2 Report soph fish Dec 30, 2008 at 10:56 AM I had the exact same problem on my pavillion laptob with vista but I found a way to fix it. My hard drive LED is blinking every couple seconds. But I still have to implement the measures listed in post # 13 to keep my OS going at least twice a day, which is a BIG pain the the ***. Every time I boot up, the computer fails to get past Windows screen. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/windows-vista-home-premium-wont-shutdown-or-restart-half-the-time.862275/

I held the button down for at least 3 minutes (like actual minutes) and it still kept running. I have a free AVG on my PC that's always been updated.

So I did then everything froze. I do NOT use a vacuum or anything inside the PC that could damage it, except cleaning the fan blades gently with computer wipes, and 3M Elec. keep moniter on as long as you like but dont have it set for 2 minutes because if your like me im trying to read something the screen just blacks out But I'll have to confess that on a few occasions it did it without my permission...usually in the middle of the night.

When I tried to wake it, all I got was a black screen. If you can get into safe mode try running a scan from there, otherwise track down your OS cd and try and boot off of that. I turned it off then turned it back on. Equip.

Out of frustration, I decided to try another browser, Google Chrome. Tech Support Guy is completely free -- paid for by advertisers and donations.

Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post. weblink Make sure energy star is checked and this doesnt matter between the three plans when you "hibernate". whs solution worked for me also. I have waited 2-3 hours for 30 Vista updates to be integrated.

The most recent error, today (5/1/09) was "0x0000000a (0x0000000000000880, 0x000000000000000c, 0x0000000000000001, 0xfffff80001e7c989)."After the issue in March, I went for weeks without being able to do Vista updates. This is my first post to my favorite tech forum. From a 5.8-inch OLED display, reports of wireless charging and even a 3D scanner for facial recognition, it's all here. http://midsolutions.org/windows-vista/windows-vista-home-premium-64-bit.html Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - > by superman0001 / December 16, 2009 8:37 AM PST In reply to: Black Screen and No cursor!

I like the way you put it lol, a hardware failure truly will not result in windows politely shutting down lol!!! now to figure out how to fix it. NOTE: you will have to do this every time you log on, so this is not a permanent fix How I Did it :P PS: I learnt this the hard way

Believe it or not, it had actually gone to sleep while it was shutting down!!

check bios to see if hdd is showing, if it is, possible there is a bios or your bootmgr file has corrupted.if not your hdd has probably failed. by R. Just leave it running overnight, and if you still have a problem, come back. Thanks in advance for your help!)I recently purchased a laptop from a reputable local dealership.

A new problem arose > about 2 weeks ago: it refuses to shut down. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. Laptop wont boot past welcome screen Dell desktop wont load past splash screen! his comment is here Isn't that single short beep usually the normal "POST" beep that a PC does when restarting?

Our aim is to give you the best possible answer. That involved taking the side of the case off to get to that fan filter, but that was it. When it wakes up, whatever monitor brightness setting i had before is locked in, i can't adjust it at all. Then I'm forced to manually power it off and start the restart in Safe Mode, restart in normal mode, etc.

Noticed that I did an alt-ctrl-del (I'm sure other combo do the same as well), Vista brings up the Lock Computer, Switch User, Log Off, Change a password, Start Task manager I tried to restore, and then restart, but was then prompted to a disk check screen for my C/NFTS drive or whatever it is. shut off power and after esc & f10 went off i continually pressed f8 till safe mode screen appeared went to syestem restore picked a date 1 week in the past Reply Chrissy says: August 19, 2007 at 6:42 am My issues got better then worse..

DapakeAug 1, 2012, 10:20 PM Fair enough lol. I'm having the exact same problem with you and have tried the same troubleshooting as well. on my laptop. Vista isn't even offering to freeze, and I bet I don't have the black screen issue when I reboot either.

I do get that problem still occasionaly. It's like Microsoft actually take pride in the frustration they cause user and will allow bugs like this to persist for a decade. I did upgrade my UniBlue Registry Booster to the 2009 version, which helps. MY system has been formatted 3 time in 1 weeek because of this issue.

My IE 7 and Vista are freezing up after 3-6 hours of use, and I'm getting error messages saying I don't have permission to use normal applications...and nothing will open for Reply WALT says: December 23, 2008 at 6:16 pm SWINT144, if you're reading this and you've found a solution to your problem please let me know! They claim I would need to buy a brand new copy of Windows 7 retail if I was doing a fresh new install on a brand new hard drive.
