After im playing in this case battlefield bad company 2 or now it was battlefield 4 after like 5-10 minutes i hear my video card is working very hard it's fan and the temperature is like 110-117c.
Then after more 5 minutes or so the monitor is shut down and the pc is frozen i can't click anything only can restart the pc. It's like the pc is in sleep mode but frozen. I don't have any blue screen before it.
I'm not sure if the problem is drivers like the video card drivers memory or virus. I have nod 32 did scan last night cleaned 17 threats.
I have a Dell XPS 8700 Desktop, has 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, running Windows 8.1 which I had installed the day it came out..the PC I purchased in September 2013..for the past few weeks I have noticed how when I shut down the pc that it can take up to 4 minutes to shut down, the monitor will go black but the power button the tower will remain white til it turns off, it used to turn off in a matter of seconds, now its minutes..same issue for restart, takes about 3 minutes to restart and no one from Dell can figure out what the problem is..all I had installed in December were updates from microsoft thats it, other than that nothing new has been installed. Yesterday I got a notification from Dell on my PC notifying me that I should update my BIOS which was A4 to A6 which I did and still the same issue..talked to five technicians and no one can figure it out, been told maybe its software related and I need to reformat the hard drive, I feel that would be a waste of time, if there was an actual cause I would do it, but to format my hard drive with no known cause of this problem would be stupid, it would just happen again.
My dell inspiron 15r 5521 when it shuts down it'd screen goes off but the lights stay on for about three minutes when the screen has gone off the only way to completely get the lights to go off is to hold down the power button for like ten seconds I know it's not good for it but sometimes when I'm in a hurry I have to this computer is like three weeks old so what's wrong with it also how do I keep wifi on when closing the lid is there a registry hack for that? And what is fast boot ....
I have started having this random problem , well its only just started the last couple of days and I haven't installed anything or changed anything. I have all monitor sleep function's set to never and every time I walk away from the computer for about 20 min the monitors seem to go off and I have to move the mouse and they come back on.
I keep getting those damn BSOD's after playing for about 20 with 30 minutes. Every thing is up to date so I don't see what is wrong... The funny thing is that I get those BSOD's only when I play BF3, it doesn't even happen to BF4!
I'm creating this topic to request the evaluation of crash dump. It usually happens after 15 or 30 minutes playing without problem and not in all games. My computer is new, about 1 month.
I am Brazilian and I used google translator to translate some of the files generated by sf diagnostics. Were partially translated (I kept the original files created in my native language Portuguese Brazil too.)
Today I plugged an hdmi to vga cable into my Win 8 sony vaio, and I plugged the other VGA side of the cable into an acee 22" monitor. I then chose from the right hand windows 8 panel to "extend to monitor", the laptop screen went black, the monitor screen remained without signal (extended screen did not show on monitor) and now the laptop screen is black.
I am now stuck and both laptop and monitor screen not working.
I tried unplugging cable, pressing fn and all the f1 to f12, shift, windows button but nothing is working.
I pressed off button then switched laptop back on and it showed the sony vaio logo on laptop then the screen went black again.
how could I return my laptop screen to work and stop the screen extension which is not working and which I am sure is the case.
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?
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.
I removed the Windows' boot menu with some terminal commands I can't recall now. I managed to do it, but now my Windows, instead of shutting down, I think it suspends. I still able to reboot it through.
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.
I recently built my fourth computer with the following components:
Case: Thermaltake Soprano Mid-Tower VO900M1N2N MOBO: ASUS Z-87 Deluxe/Quad CPU: Intel i7-4770K (Haswell) Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W HD: Samsung 840 EVO 1TB GPU: ASUS Radeon HD7790 Logitech MX3000 Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Combo
The operating system is Windows 8.1 Pro (clean install on the SSD). The system is so fast and awesome that it refuses to shut down. It makes no difference how I shutdown, it restarts in about 3 seconds. I have to physically cut power to the PSU to shut it down. I have updated all the device drivers and have the latest BIOS (version 1707) according to the ASUS website. I
As a troubleshooting measure, I also did a clean install of Windows 8.1 (not Pro version) on a 250 GB WD HD without the MOBO and GPU drivers and booted with only this HD (all other storage devices unplugged). The same problem persists so I believe it is a BIOS setting or a motherboard problem. I am using the default BIOS settings without overclocking the CPU.
While updating my computer i accidentally left the charger out. So it shut down towards the end of the update and now when i restart my computer i'll only the see the HP start-up/loading screen and then the screen just turns black and all i see is my cursor. I didn't get any Windows installation cd with my computer and now what to do.
i have upgraded my laptop to windows 8 everything works fine when it is on but when i try to shut down or sleep it just has a black sceen and does not turn off or sleep and it becomes unresponsive so have to hold down the power button to reboot it.
also whenever windows needs restarting it freezes on the restarting screen so again have to reboot by holding down power
I installed Windows 8 and another monitor on my GeForce GT 240 video card. I have one monitor on a DVI and another monitor on VGA. Every couple of minutes the computer shuts down. It can be anywhere from one minute to one hour or maybe not at all. My power setting or set to NEVER on both monitor and Sleep. I'm wondering if it can be my Video card that is shutting down my computer. I know Video cards, and RAM that can stop a computer cold. Or could it be something in Windows 8.
Since yesterday, I keep getting Kernel Inpage Error like every 15 mins I turnd the computer on. It runs on pre-installed Windows 8 after I bought it new a year ago. In the past, I have been getting BSOD, but it is usually after I wake it from sleep mode and the error is IRQL EQUAL OR LESS ..
Approximately every 10min my Windows 8 do a sound. The sound is little bit like when you connect something to usb port.
Everything works well and theoretically it isn't big deal. Practically is does hell from watching of anything. When I watch movie, serial or just some video on youtube this sound turns player's sound off. Sometimes its silenced only on short time but mostly it's permanent. Only one solution in this situation is to reset movie player or reload web page.
In every case when I hear this sound, I can find Surrogate process in task manager. I think it can has connectivity.
I recently purchased a new desktop and it came with Windows 8 installed on it. Everything worked fine for the first two weeks. Then, I noticed my fan was running at full speed when I'd come into the room after a while. My desktop was in sleep mode, so I was like, Woke my desktop up and the fan returned to normal. Every time my computer goes into sleep mode, the fan kicks on full blast. Okay... maybe no sleep mode, but the fan will shut off when I shut down my computer, right? Nope again. When my computer is shut down, the fan is still running at full speed. The thing is, when my computer is in sleep mode or shut down, the fan runs at full speed, but when I'm using it (like now) the fan is normal.
I've been looking around trying to find something related to my problem. I've came across a few articles on the forums, like Fans still running after shutdown of windows 8. Seems like my same problem, but it was during his install he shut down Windows. However, there was talk of this "bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes", but I don't really want to mess with the my boot.ini files... I'm not bad at small programs, but I really don't want to toy around and destroy my desktop right now.
I've read some other articles about a Windows 8 laptop in idle mode with the same problem, and they said it was antivirus related. I figured that if that were the case, shouldn't have I seen it during the first time I booted up my desktop?
I think I started noticing this problem AFTER I installed some windows updates from Microsoft... Any way to verify that everything went smoothly, I kinda assumed and left my computer running while it was updating...
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.
I built a custom PC about a month ago, and did a clean install of an OEM copy of Windows 8 with no problems. Upon launch this past Thursday, I downloaded the Windows 8.1 update from the store, which I like except for one problem:
Shutting down the computer by pressing the power button or "shut down" from the charms bar power menu shuts down Windows, but leaves the computer itself on and running, case fans spinning and all. Oddly enough shutting down the computer using the menu I get by right-clicking the new start button shuts down the computer properly, and that is the only way to do it without flipping the computer's power switch. That said, I would still like it to work 100% properly.
