8.1 RT Doesn't Shut Down Properly

Oct 3, 2013

I've done a fresh install of 8.1 RT and all appears to be well except if I shut down.

If I select restart it restarts fine.

However if I select Shutdown, I get the woindows shreen telling me it's shutting down, then the monitor goes blank, but the PC is going indefinitely (I've given it 15 mins)

If I press the reset button on the PC case it reboots into windows without any "windows didn't shut down" type messages during bootup.

However if I check the event log, it does say

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Windows 8 Won't Sleep Or Shut Down Properly

Jan 1, 2014

I recently bought a new laptop which has windows 8 installed on it and at times when I put it into sleep mode the screen goes off but the computer is still running and I have to use the power button to turn it off(Which I don't really like to do). When I turn it off the same thing happens and sometimes when I'm lucky it will give me an error message .I have download all of the updates for windows 8 which did not solve it and I disabled fast bootup which didn't either I am just wondering if I download 8.1 will it fix it although I installed 8.1 on another laptop and the same thing happened and then I installed just 8 which gave me the same result.

Windows 8 Sometimes Won't Shut Down / Sleep / Restart Properly?

Oct 1, 2014

When I choose to either shut down, restart or put my laptop to sleep through the Windows 8.1 start menu, usually everything is okay and the process works, however sometimes (I'd say one attempt on four), the computer is stuck with the screen turned off but the fan still turned on! In this case all I can do is to force the laptop to shut down by pressing the power button 5 seconds, but I was always told it was somehow bad for the computer and would eventually damage it

Machine Won't Shut Down Properly Or Enter Sleep Mode?

May 18, 2013

My machine won't fully shut down and it won't enter sleep mode without crashing. When I boot back up it gives me an error report and said that it didn't shut down properly. I tried doing a system restore to before this happened and it is still going on. I use a Crucial SSD for my OS, not sure if that could be the issue but I've used it without problems for about a year and half now.

Windows 8.1 Doesn't Turn On Properly And Needs Recovery

Feb 19, 2014

When I turned on computer it showed a message that system did not turn on properly. It gave me choices what to do:

-refresh PC
-reset PC
-advanced options

I've chosen system recovery in advanced options. Everything would be fine, if it would keep same settings before the problem occurred. I spent a lot of time getting settings right. And that would be okay, if it happened once. But it happened second time in period of two weeks. I don't want that error happens again.

My computer specifications:
-OS Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650
-Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz
-120 GB SSD disc and 931 GB HDD.

Windows 8 Messages App Doesn't Work Properly

Sep 8, 2012

I really like Windows 8, but I have a problem with the app that controls messages. It's linked with Facebook, so whenever one of my friends is messaging me, I'm can answer from the app. Pretty smart, I think.

However, I have a problem. I have to friends with same name and last name.

My problem:

Friend number 1 is chatting with me.

Friend number 2's profile picture appear in the app.

Sometime friend number 2 recieves the message I'm sending to friend number 1.

Another problem is that the app doesn't seem to figure out if I already read the message on Facebook.

Debugging :: Windows 8 Doesn't Shut Down Instead It Restarts

Oct 29, 2013

Whenever I click the "shut down" button, the PC powers off for a moment and then just starts up again... I've tried disabling fast boot option in the power settings but that does nothing. Also every time my PC starts it says "Your PC ran into a problem" and some other info about on how it is a "system failure" and how I can send it to Microsoft. It also creates a MEMORY.DMP file in my System32 folder. This is really bugging me and it's happening since I reinstalled my Windows after getting a new motherboard, cpu and ram. Should I try reinstalling my Windows 8 again or is there a simpler solution to this? Also I have the latest version of BIOS and my system specs are:

Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 rev 3.0
AMD FX-8320 Black Edition Turbo mode @ 3.7ghz
2x4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 @ 1600mhz (it goes a little bit over that since of the turbo mode of my cpu)
VIA Audio integrated on the mobo
LC Power LC600H-12 @ 600W

Tablets :: Asus VivoTab Doesn't Shut Down

Aug 21, 2013

I have an ASUS VivoTab that kept draining the battery. I noticed that after shutting down, I would open up the case or transleeve and discover it was on.

After determining that I hadn't accidentally left it on, I watched it after shutting down one evening and indeed about 2 minutes later, it turned itself back on.

I shut it down using the shutdown from the initial screen. That is, I did not use the Charms bar, select Settings and shut down. This appears to work.

Is this a wonky tablet? Related to Windows 8?

Apps / Software :: Windows Store Apps Doesn't Render Properly

Feb 20, 2014

I really like windows 8 and stuff, but ive been having problems with windows 7 so i decided to install windows 8.1 and never look back, but it appears that ive had an issue for the first time ever with windows 8.x

So I was trying to make this game called blacklight retribution run on windows 8 (it crashes for some reason)

And at some point i was installing some radio apps for the metro interface and trying to play the game at the same time (my PC is pretty weak -3.1ghz AMD processor, 4gb ram, 500gb hdd and a radeon 3300 hd integrated graphics card)

So my windows 8.1 (with the latest updates) crashed with the all-cool-new-bluescreen-of-death and after that my windows store app renders its content as if its broken, here's what it looks like:

I restarted windows numerous times, but the windows store app still appears to be "broken" but other apps seem to work as they should.

I am new to windows 8 and I couldn't find a way to restore windows to an earlier point, I know a very straightforward way - reinstall windows 8.1.

Windows 8.1 Not Booting Properly

May 3, 2014

my computer has suddenly starting acting up:- I cannot enter my password due to no response via the keyboard I am using a MS Comfort 500 keyboard & mouse but this isn't the main problem as if I can open up the computer (and I can now and then) the cursor is very jerky and unresponsive, but now things have got a whole lot worse the computer is starting up in repair mode (didn't know this existed) but cannot repair itself so gives me the options of refreshing or resetting, now resetting seems a bit drastic as although I have my files on external discs and in the cloud I have never done a restore point and it seems as though a disc my have failed but as I cannot get into the computer I have no way of doing any other checks it could have been a virus that caused the problem, wish I had created restore point, if I do a reset I will loose all the programs on the c drive.

Windows 8 Search Is Not Working Properly?

Nov 5, 2012

Neither the start screen nor the search feature within Explorer will return any results if the files I want to look for are on my secondary HDD. This is a bit of a problem as all of my documents, pictures, videos, downloads etc are on this secondary drive.

I can even go into the documents library and search using Explorer, and it still won't find anything that I search for.

How To Get Windows 8 Running Properly On MacBook Pro

Sep 15, 2011

how to get Windows 8 running properly on a MacBook Pro (or in general any Mac that supports BootCamp).

Everything runs kind of smoothly, except since Apple doesn't "Officially Support" Windows 8, out of the gate I wasn't able to get a few things working. Unfortunately, the driver disc that Apple provides to you doesn't install officially because I was "not running Windows 7."

I am using a MacBook Pro, early 2010. 2.4ghz Core2Duo, 4gb of RAM and a 1tb HDD.

Not working
Volume Buttons
Brightness Buttons
Eject button
2-Finger Scroll

I'll update later once I am out of class, but those are some things I've run into.

Audio :: Speakers Not Detected Properly?

Mar 30, 2013

I am using windows 8 pro x64 with an asus P8P67 LE motherboard and have a 5.1 sound system. I installed win 8 fresh and the audio was working fine. One time when I booted up, the audio sounded off. The sound was only coming out of the front left speaker. I did the speaker test within win 8 and the realtek menu. The front right speaker is being detected as the subwoofer and the rest are fine. It's the only speaker not working properly so it's like having two subs. I tried setting it to stereo, 2.1, speaker fill, ect... with the same results. I have not messed with wiring or software. Sometimes it would go back to normal but then do it again randomly. In the end, I reinstalled win 8 and it worked fine. Then suddenly, it happened again. The only difference this time is that it will not go back to normal by itself. It seems to be stuck on this "setting". I did do some research but I guess I didn't do it well enough because I could not find an answer that would work. Again, it worked fine in win 7 and sometimes in Windows 8. I have checked the wires to make sure nothing has changed and that they are connected well and they are fine. I tried changing the speaker settings and speaker fill but with no results. I don't know what else to try.

Unable To Install Font Properly?

Nov 12, 2013

Last night I downloaded the font Roboto (used by Google for their Android UI) and all of the weights installed properly, except for the Regular and Regular Italic weights. Trying to re-install the weights prompts a query if I want to replace them. Under the Control Panel's Fonts area, there are two ghost-like icons that would indicate the presence of the missing weights, and when I check for the fonts using "localhostc$WindowsFonts" I see them there (all copies). Furthermore, despite being the Administrator of my computer, I can't seem to delete them from this area. All my hidden files are turned on, so I'm not sure what else to do.

I'm trying to fully disable User Account Control on Windows 8.1 using regedit.exe, but changing ENABLELUA value from 1 to 0 ( enablelua is located on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem) is not working anymore.

I've used this trick on Windows 8.0 and it worked, but it is not working on Windows 8.1 and I dont know why.

Is there any other way to fully disable UAC on windows 8.1?

Does Windows 8 Really Shut Down?

Oct 5, 2012

I'm using Windows 8 Professional (got it from MSDNAA as soon as it appeared there ) and it seems to me that Windows 8 doesn't really shut down properly. I attached an image taken with Snipping Tool and it showed that the CPU up-time is 4 days etc etc..

The inconsistency here is, I just booted up my laptop few minutes ago. I did shut down my laptop properly every time. The only explanation here is that this 4 days ago was the day when I placed my battery back into the laptop.

But the laptop supposed to shut down PROPERLY right?

Cannot Shut Down PC Without Switching Off PSU?

Jul 27, 2014

Yesterday while I was sleeping, a thunder struck nearby my house while my PC was running. After that I immediately switched the PSU from 1 to 0 without trying to shut it down properly. Since then I cannot shut down my PC without switching off the PSU. To tell you exactly what happens, I press the shutdown button in Windows 8.1 normally, after that it shuts down for around half a second, turns back on for half a second and then again turns off for half a second. After that it powers back on. I forgot to mention that my integrated network card on the motherboard died after the lightning as well. My MOBO has some kind of electrostatic discharge protection as well. Last thing, when I booted up my PC for the first time after I turned it off by switching off the PSU, it said "Setting thing up for you" like I started Windows for the first time.

System specs:
Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-D3
CPU: AMD FX-8320 @ 3.5ghz
RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR3 2x4GB @ 1600mhz
PSU: LC Power LC600H-12

Windows 8.1 Won't Shut Down

Aug 5, 2014

For the past 2 weeks (approximately), when I click "Shut Down" on my Win 8 laptop, nothing happens. If I click "Sleep," it goes to sleep right away, but it will not shut down. I see by the forum posts that my problem isn't unique. I have tried all three methods described in the post: [URL] .... - all to no avail. I have also tried Power Options > Choose what the power buttons do and unchecked Turn on fast start up as other posts have suggested.

In Method 2 described in the post above, I ran sfc /scannow and ended up with the following result:

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in C:/Windows/Logs/CBS/cbs.log. (I tried to attach the file but it's 15MB, too large).

My Win 8 machine is new (only a few months old) and my system specs are attached also. It was shutting down fine, I have a feeling this happened during a Windows Update.
