Windows does not shut down. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is what is wrong with windows on a labtop.  There is no way to shut the system down quickly.  You can hit the off key, even hold it down until you think the computer will shut down. but many times I reopen my computer a couple hours later to find my battery almost dead, there is is some dialog box warning me that I am closing some application (Am I sure I what to close it?),  the computer is hot enough to cook my dinner and the disk drive is spinning out of control.  Why cant' I just hit the power button to turn off the computer?

  • Contact the manufacturer of your laptop and ask for for troubleshooting assistance.
