How come my Sony VAIO running Windows 7 will not shutdown? 

by on April 22, 2013

Q: My Sony Vaio, model number VPCCW1PFX/U, running windows 7 home premium. I have read numerous different forums and tried everything they suggested; deleting any new programs, virus and malware scans, removing items from startup, and restarting in safe mode, and still my computer will not shutdown, hibernate, nor sleep. If left unattended or if I close the lid the screen will go dark but the hard drive continues to run, also if I try manual shut down the computer will only restart. This is driving me crazy, any help you could provide would be much appreciated. Thank you.

 
 

How come my Dell XPS 14 does not shut down completely when I tell it to shutdown? 

by on February 11, 2013

Q: I have bought a new laptop, Dell XPS 14Z, 13 inch, with Windows 7 Premeium installed on it. However, I have a couple of problems from the very start which makes me regret buying it.

The laptop works great, but sometimes when I try to shut it down, it doesn’t. Just a blue window with shutting down sign but it never turns off perfectly.
The second problem is even deadlier. A blue screen, once a day or two days once appears and I never know why. This death screen comes from nowhere without any reason, I scanned my computer and there’s no trace of virus. The only think recognizeable from the screen is this file ‘tixhci.sys” file. Can anyone help me here?

Many thanks in advance,
PS, I don’t know much about BIOS, so please tell me step by stem if the problem is related to the hardware.

Why does my laptop shutdown suddenly? 

by on March 31, 2011

Q: I have an HP pavilion dv3 Notebook. I’m using a Microsoft Windows XP home edition operating system. From the past one month my laptop shuts down suddenly and this is happening quite frequently. I think the laptop is getting heated up and that’s what is causing these unexpected shut downs. Could this be a reason? I’ve started using a notebook fan on which i keep my laptop these day to keep it cool. Help me out with this? Why is this happening?
