computer wont shutdown

by Fred Gordon In reply to computer wont shutdown

Welcome to the club! You must have an EMachines etower. After much research I found out that after a short time period about 20% of the emachines out there won't stay shut down. Windows closes down, the machine gives three short beeps, goes the screen blanks for a second, and then the machine starts booting up. Its a problem in the shutdown circuitry. What I do on my one emachine is after I hear the three beeps I shut off my UPS. If you don't have one flip the switch on your power strip or pull the plug from the wall.

Its not a major problem but more of an annoyance. I heard from a salesman at a major electronics chain store that one fourth of their emachines come back for that reason. As far as I know Emachines still has not fixed the design flaw and they are the least expensive box out there.

if your running windows 98 second edition then go to microsofts web sight. there is a fix that you can download that should take care of your problem. one of the problems stems from the pci steering amoung others.

I believe you are running win98.
From the run menu, type msconfig,
click on the advance button, and checked the Disable fast shutdown box.

Click ok, ok and yes to restart your system. It should be okay afterwards.
