    Does computer losing power cause damage?


    In the old days if you turned off your computer's power with the power button, or unplugged it, or took out the laptop's battery, you'd get a "Windows did not shut down properly" message when you turned it back on. The implication seemed to be that what you did was improper. We never see that message anymore, but there is still a proper way to turn off your computer. I assume it's for good reason.

    I've had a few instances, including once today, where the power was disconnected by accident. I accidently bumped the switch on the power strip my laptop is connected to while it was in sleep mode.

    Anyway, does this do any harm at all? If not, why is there the Shutdown option in the start menu rather than just having people simply press the power button to turn the computer off?

    :)

    Internet connection causes computer to loose power.

    Hello Cliff,



    An outdated network adapter can be one possible reason for this.
    To isolate the issue, kindly provide us these details:



    • Have you made any changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    • How are you connected to the internet? Is it via Ethernet cable or is it wirelessly connected?
    • Have you installed the latest Windows updates?


    To help us diagnose the cause of this error, we would suggest that you follow these steps:



    Step 1: Boot into safe mode and check if the issue persists

    Safe mode starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and services. To boot into safe mode, kindly follow the steps on this link.



    Step 2: If issue does not persist in safe mode, we suggest you to place the computer in clean boot and check which third party application driver is causing the issue.

    Follow the steps on this link to
    perform a clean boot.



    Note: After troubleshooting, make sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in Step 7 in the above KB article.



    We’ll keep an eye out for your response.

  3. Computer Causing Power Outage?

    The bathroom shouldn't be on the same circuit as your bedroom and office. It should using GFCI/RCD on a different breaker all together. If you are not I suggest you get an electrician out there to fix that ASAP. If its true the entire second floor is on one circuit I suggest you move or have it rewired. That's not only poor building but dangerous.

    But I don't expect you to listen to me.

    If you are going to be living where you are right now I suggest you have a dedicated line ran to your computers outlet.

    Windows store cache is damaged

    Hi,

    Damaged Windows Store cache may be due to several reasons. It is possible that before you ran the Windows App troubleshooter, Windows Store is already corrupted of needs to be updated.

    To resolve your concern, we suggest that you restart your computer to normal startup to disable unnecessary apps that runs in the background of your computer while you are using it. This process will also reset your apps without losing data on your computer.

    To restart your computer to normal startup, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows + R on the keyboard.
    • Type msconfig, and then click OK.
    • On the General tab,
      click the Normal Startup, and then click OK.
    • When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.
