I just built a new pc. Specs are Asus Z87-Pro Motherboard, Intel i7 4790k, 16gb RAM, 3T seagate HD. Everything has been performing well on my computer except for when it needs to restart. When I go into windows and click shutdown it has no problem but when I click restart it will exit windows and turn off the display but the computer will remain running and will not boot back up.
I have to manually press the power button to turn it off and then press it again to boot it back up. This also happens when it needs to restart from other programs. From what I have found is it may have to be something with bios versions or settings but I honestly have no clue. I have the most recent bios update for my mobo and I haven't found any settings that would fix this in my bios either.
I have windows 8.1 installed on my laptop and when I try to upgrade to windows 10, it overheats, shuts down and when I restart it, goes back to windows 8.1.
My fans are clean and everything works just fine with the laptop, I don't understand why is this happening. I also have a friend with a similar laptop model who is having the same overheating problem when upgrading to windows 10 (in his case, from windows 7).
After I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, my sleep feature quit working properly. There was a point in time a couple months back it did work, but since I hardly use it I didn't notice a problem. Recently I decided I'd start using it, and that's when I noticed the problem. When I go to sleep mode, it goes to sleep, but than when I bring it out of sleep mode it just restarts. I don't get any kind of error message at all, and as far as I can tell my power settings are set right. One suggestion I found suggested to revert my driver for Intel Management Engine Interface from version 10 or 11 to 9.5. I just reformat my hard drive and start over. I'm trying to avoid that at all costs. I see suggestions on the settings in BIOS. Which settings in particular should I look to change?
So, as the title says, my computer has recently stopped sleeping completely. When I press the sleep key or tell it to sleep through the start menu it just shuts down. The screen fades like it's sleeping but when I turn it back on it has to go through the entire boot sequence and my session is unsaved.
I'm having a problem when I'm on my computer programming or playing a game, my system just shuts down by its self , and when I have closed all windows, its fine all day. Like I will be playing a online game and if anything is open it works for like 5 minutes then it just goes off, no sounds or any beeps, just goes off, I have just got a video card its a GT740 and I just got more ram witch I got at the same time and I installed it so now I have a better video card and 16gb of ram, would the video card not be setup right or its bad ram, This just started when I got the video card and the ram about a week then it started this, I don't know what to do about this, I'm running windows 10 64bit.. I forgot to say that the cpu is 3.50GHz ....
I used to run Windows 7, 64 bit. Then I took the free upgrade to Windows 10. It took me 3 or 4 attempts to get it to download and install.
Now my computer shuts itself down when it thinks I am away from it. My husband and I run a law office out of our home, and I cannot babysit the computer all day. I need it to stay on until I turn it off.
Here are my power settings:
Turn off display - 20 hours and 10 minutes Turn off hard disk - 2340 minutes (39 hours) Sleep - never Power button - do nothing
But it ignores me. It still turns off my computer all by itself if I am not there giving it constant keystrokes or mouse clicks. Totally unacceptable. If I can't fix this by the 5th, I am going back to 7.
Then I was counseled to o to the ControlPanel/Power Options On the left side, click ‘Choose what the Power button does’, un-check ‘Turn on fast startup’ and save my changes. But that did not work either - it still shut itself down the minute my back was turned. It seems I am not the only one with this problem.
A few days ago, I decided to overclock my PC. It froze a bunch, then gave a ton of random shut downs. I tried replacing the power supply, and the video card. it was good for a day, then fried the motherboard.
So I went out, bought a new case. New motherboard, new processor, new video card, new power supply, new liquid cooling, new monitor and keyboard and mouse. I ran all the cables neatly.
The only thing I reused is the memory, SSD HD, backup 1tb hard drive, and cd rom drive. Installed everything, and have been playing fallout 4 all day.
10 minutes ago, same exact thing. PC shuts down out of nowhere. I check the event log, not a single notice. I am at a COMPLETE loss for words now. I have a moster power surge protector, but I dont know that it has anything to do with it. I did plug the PC right into the wall.
I am a loss for words. Im now down $1500, an I d i feel like it was for nothing now.
My computer (an Asus Republic of Gamers) shuts down when in sleep mode. More precisely, I put it in sleep mode (in 1-2 seconds), but when I open the lid or press a key on the keyboard to wake it up, it starts from scratch, as if I had shut it down.
I tried deactivating Intel Management Engine Interface in the Device Manager as I saw it could be a reason for my problem, but it doesn't solve it. I reinstalled Windows from scratch (from a USB key) and the problem is still there.
I only have the computer for less than a month and I think it worked fine at the beginning.
I loved playing Solitaire in Win 7 but having an unusual problem playing the Solitaire app in Win 10. After about 15 minutes, the computer just shuts down. No warning, no error messages, no BSOD, nothing.
I can guarantee you it is not just a coincidence. My computer could be running for days without any problem but as soon as I start playing Solitaire this happens.
I upgraded to Windows 10 yesterday, and at first, everything was fine, but when I play league of legends, randomly, my computer just says "input not supported" or "no signal" or sometimes nothing at all, and then shuts down. This never happened before I upgraded to Windows 10. I went back to Windows 8.1, but it still shuts down in the middle of league games. Again, never happened before going to Windows 10. Is it my GPU? or CPU? or PSU?
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Corsair H105 73.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Motherboard: MSI Z97-G55 SLI ATX LGA1150 Motherboard RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory Storage: Intel 530 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX Video Card PSU: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Also, the SSD is my boot drive and has league on it, it has only about 35GB out of 240GB left.
I have clean installed windows 10 on my Zenbook (UX31LA) and i have problem with the sleep mode, when i enter sleep mode (either way) my screen turns off and the power led blinks (normal so far), but when i wake the computer up, I see the "Asus" logo and it loads the sign in screen and all my work is gone. it looks like it stats from scratch and it takes about 8 sec (like stat from power off).
I was browsing the internet, my computer suddenly began to freeze up and run extremely slow. After roughly 5 minutes of that, I was met with a black screen and really no other choice than to hold down the power button and force a shut down on the computer. Upon the computer booting back up, I see a Windows 10 logo and a small circular loading graphic that's spinning as if its loading. This happens for a few minutes until an error message appears "Unmountable_Boot_volume" and the PC automatically restarts itself.
On the second reboot, I see the same Windows 10 logo but instead of a loading bar, its just text indicating the computer will now try to automatically repair itself. This is when the computer takes me to the "Choose your keyboard layout" screen on what I assume to be the repair interface. The problem is that my keyboard/mouse are not recognized or working at this stage, so I'm unable to select an option and progress. I've read that there are some possibilities at a fix or way to get the keyboard to function through the use of the BIOS menu, however any attempts to press "Esc" on my keyboard or any of the other functions such as "F10" for a boot menu results in an instant freeze of my PC.
I'm running Windows 10 on an HP Pavilion P6000 series. I've already done my own research as to what could be causing this and have tried a few things such as manually resetting the CMOS, reseating pieces of hardware, only plugging in essential cords (Keyboard, Monitor, and Power cable). and disconnecting the power to the Motherboard and reconnecting it.
Whenever I on my computer after I wake up or come back from work, my windows sometimes do not boot up fully. it will load and then gets stuck on an empty orange screen (might be related to the fact that I have orange set as my colour theme for my windows 10). I will then hold on to the power button on my computer to force a shutdown. Right after that, I will power on again and the computer starts up fine.
This has been occurring for a while - I didn't have this issue when I first installed (upgraded from windows 8) windows 10.
I tried googling my issue, and I have turned off Fast Start-up under power options but it did not solve the problem.
Upgrade from win 8.1..The install was very smooth when I upgraded, i am having minimal problem with my pc. the only problem is that at the moment, random of times my pc will automatically reset with out warning, no BSOD, no errors. Here is how it will go,
Playing game Sudden power off (sometimes up to x3) Restart (sometimes up to x3) then it will auto automatically boot to windows and ill have a full day before it does it again.
My Lenovo PC suddenly shut down today and when I restarted it I got a BSOD with a 'bad pool header' message. I did eventually restart but soon shut down again with a 'k mode exception not handled' message. Now when I restart I get a blue page 'RECOVERY Your computer could not start properly. A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed. Error: 0xc0000225.'
I have a windows 10 system repair disk but when I try and boot from it I get 'non system disk or disk error'.
I recently (2 weeks ago) replaced the hard drive because the old one was showing SMART errors. I cloned the old disk to an identical disk and it seemed to be going fine until today. Not sure quite what to do next.
Since installing Win 10 my computer will restart on its own if the electrical power "blips" or I unplug the unit and plug it back in. It did not happen when I had Win 7.
I also have to manually restart the system twice to get past the black screen with the blue window. If I go to safe mode using msconfig to change boot method I usually do not have the problem. But everything seems to slow down.
I just currently started having this issue. My computer runs completely fine. However I applied recent windows 10 upgrades and I for some reason had to restart I cant remember why. However after the initial restart the computer simply stayed on and didn't initiate boot. I then turned off the computer and turned it back on. It boots fine, no problems. However if I set the computer to restart from the start menu it will but it wont boot back. It will just stay on and make a louder fan noise but wont reboot?
I recently replaced the mobo and the CPU on this system. I am getting BSOD and/or the computer randomly freeze or restart on its own. I did run the computer in safe mode for a whole day and did not have any of the aforementioned issues.
