  1. My windows 10 PC doesn't shut down properly


    1)PC goes through shutdown process but computer remains running (fans spinning, Power switch LED on) 2)Computer can be restarted normally Keyboard and mouse can't wake up PC once shutdown is started, both lose power (LEDs off) 3)Only way to turn PC off is by holding power button or cutting power 4)Started after installing solidworks crack. So I uninstalled it but still the problem persists.

    I've tried all the solutions I could find online but still have no luck in switching it off by normal means. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

  3. win 10 will not shut down properly

    Hi Richard,

    Usually, this issue occur due to outdated or corrupted device drivers, services or processes which are not shutting down properly, or third-party programs that prevents your computer to shut down properly. For better assistance, we'll be needing additional
    information:

    • Have you made any recent changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Is this an error message Explorer\windows\settingsync\BackgroundUploadTask? If yes, where are you getting this message?
    • If possible, can you send us a screenshot?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you run the Power troubleshooter as an initial troubleshooting step. To run the Power troubleshooter, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Settings.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Click Troubleshoot in the left pane of the window.
    • Under Find and fix other problems, select Power
      and click Run the troubleshooter.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.

    My windows 10 PC doesn't shut down properly

    Windows 10 doesn't shut down properly


    I have a laptop ASUS Zenbook UX303LN. I made a clean install to Windows 10 and now it doesn't shut down properly.

    When I shut it down, the screen goes black, but the power light remains on and I have to shut it down manually. Also, I sometimes cannot restart it when it goes to sleep and I also have to shut it down manually. This doesn't happen everytime, but most of the time. I previously had Windows 8.1 and did not have this problem. Actually, I'm considering changing back.

    The OS and drivers are all up to date.

    I have research this issue and the most common fixes are:
    • Uncheck the "Turn on fast startup (recommended)"
    • Use a shortcut for "shutdown /s /t 5"

    I've tried both and the problem remains.

    These are the videos / articles I've found on the subject:
