    What didn't work? What happened when you tried?

    Another suggestion, have a look in the System and Application logs in Event Viewer for Errors and Warnings and post copies here. Don't post any from than more than 48 hours ago.

    You can access Event Viewer by selecting Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Event Viewer. When researching the meaning of the error, information regarding Event ID, Source and Description are important.

    A tip for posting copies of Error Reports! Run Event Viewer and double click on the error you want to copy. You will see a button resembling two pages. Click the button and close Event Viewer. This places a copy of the report into your Clipboard. Paste
    into the body your message. Make sure that this is the first paste after exiting from Event Viewer.

    Evening Uw
      I would see if you can find the svcpack install log file. It should tell you why it did not install.
     If there is an entery in the windows update log file in the %windir% says error reading registery it is the access denied problem with the solution avail at the top right. *Subinacl.exe and reset cmd*
     
     You didnt say which mb you were instaling to. If intel you need the latest .inf version avail from your mb naufactor or inte.
     
     Also the laest driver for sata is installed on your mb and you are using a Sata hard drive.
      To figure out the log files here are some places too look with in
     
     C:\%windir%\WindowsUpdate log file
        Setupai log file
        Setuperr
     Svc[pack log file.
     Ntboot.log in the root directory
     
    Also search for intelppm.sys and amd based systems on here. to figure out if you have both in your registery.
    *Killing one or the other from the recover console. works
        If Amd based rename intelppm.sys inteppm.old reverse.
     
    My guess is either the .inf was an older version or you have an OEM cd for xp sp2.
     
     If this is not too clear. The xp solution center has preparation and post install fixes for xp sp3.

    You can shut it down. Alternatively, put it to Sleep then switch off mains power: when powered up it will resume from hibernation.

    If it is in hybrid sleep it may wake up to run scheduled tasks such as updates, defragmentation or other functions. If you can identify all the tasks you can schedule them not to occur in the middle of the night.

    Thanks

    M

    DB:3.13:How To Gracefully Shut Down The Router 3x


    From the viewpoint of the IOS, there is no shutdown procedure and you can do as Kevin recommends. However, there may be a need to shutdown routing protocols to minimize the impact of the shutdown. Of course, this is only relevant if the router is in a network where it there are other paths available to carry any traffic being handled by the router. This can include shutting down HSRP to shift the "active router" role to another router, shutting down OSPF so that this router will not be used as a transit router, etc.

    The protocols will recover from the sudden loss of the router, but you can avoid the interruption of service if you do an orderly shutdown. Unfortunately, the concept of orderly shutdown is not supported for all protocols or in all IOS releases, so your mileage may vary. For example, see: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1839/products_feature_guide09186a00800b5d37.html for how to handle OSPF.

    Hi,

    I think, it is not a good idea to import completed orders into CRM system. The best solution would be that you get data uploaded into BIW or your reporting system.

    And you can pull out all the relevant information there.

    You may also get technical problems if you want to import old transactions into system like system will not allow you to created sales order/service order before the validity start date of these sales/service organizations.

    Hi Frances Metzger,

    Thanks you asking your question on the Answers Forum.

    How are you shutting down your computer?
    If you’re using the power button on the computer box, you can change what function that button provides.

    Click the Start button and type "power option" in the search field.
    Right click the Power Options that appears and click "Run as Administrator". You may be asked for your password.
    On the left hand side you can click "Choose what the power button does" and adjust the setting from there.

    Please let us know how this works out.

    ===========================================

    Consider this an absolute must - manually updating your drivers.

    Vista and Windows 7 love updated drivers so here is how to update the major ones.

    This ismy generic how to for proper driver updates :

    This utility makes it easy to see which versions are loaded :

    DriverView - Free -utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded

    on your system. For each driver in the list, additional useful information is
    displayed: load address of the driver, description, version, product name,
    company that created the driver, and more.
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html

    For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are
    the most current. Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - write down
    the make and complete model of your video adapter - double click - Driver's tab -

    write down the version info. Now click UPdate Driver (this may not do anything
    as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click - Uninstall - REBOOT
    this will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard
    if 3rd party with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers

    you have.

    Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples)(as rollback)
    and then Device Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get
    their latest versions. (Look for BIOS, Chipsetand software updates at System
    Maker's site while there.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them- Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN -
    REBOOT after each installation.

    Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are
    installing actually shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the
    latest is installed (sound drivers particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot -

    check to be sure it is installed and repeat as needed.

    Repeat at Device Makers - BTW atDeviceMakers DO NOT RUN THEIR
    SCANNER - check manually by model.

    Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.
    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/ht/driverdlmfgr.htm

    Installing and updating drivers in Windows 7 (updating drivers manually using
    the methods above is preferred to ensure the latest drivers from System maker
    and Device makers are found)
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/43216-installing-updating-drivers-7-a.html

    If you update drivers manually then it is a good idea to disable Driver Installations
    in Windows Updates, this leaves Windows Updates ON however it will not install
    drivers which will usually be older and cause issues. If Updates suggests a new
    driver then HIDE it (Right Click on it) and then go look for new ones manually if

    you wish.

    BASED ON YOUR EXPRIENCEAND ESTIMATION, If an account is "temporarily blocked" for violation TOU or COC regardless ofthe reason andwhat the contents are saved in skydrive, After the investigation is finished by online safety team, then
    will they allow the user totransfer outthe own personal files, photos, documentsfrom skydrive?? if they decide to close the account??

    Because I have spoke with the 1-800-microsoft skydrive app support team, and after the agent checked my case number, he told me that"your account is still under investigation and after its done, you'll be allowed 2-3 days to transfer your personal
    data/contents from skydrive before its deletion".

    I WANT TO MAKE SURE ABOUT THE TRUTH OFABOVE STATEMENT?! cause I'm so in need of my files I have saved in skydrive earlier before its blocked.

    Please let me know about this matter,

    Thank you.

    How do you easily determine the state of the mirror? I thought you used to be able to see the state via a tool-tip (hover over the data source). However, that now just shows "Attached" instead of 63% complete (or whatever). Also, when initially synchronizing, a message dialog sometimes appears on the node's desktop saying the datasource is being duplicated (and don't shut down). Has anyone seen this?At this point it seems the only way to get the state is to go to the datasource tab and click "information". This makes it very difficult to know when the inital sync is complete.

    DB:3.03:Determining Mirror State 1a

    Hello Everyone,A hot fix (43387) to address the sync display is available through support for AutoStart version 5.2 SP3 and should be posted on Powerlink in the near future. The fixes have also been implemented in the current AutoStart 5.3 release. To check the sync percentage of the data source from the console, the following steps may be performed:- Select the data source in the left hand tree-view.- In the right hand pane select the status tab.- In the "selected nodes for data source" select the active node.- At the bottom of the pane there will be 5 button's, click the 4th button which is "Get information from the current data source".- The results window will now display the data source state of each node and the percentage complete on the target node.Regards,Emilio

    Assuming you can feed to the printer the pages you've already printed (on the reverse side, of course), enter the page range you want to print (starting from the page where it got stuck), and then click on More Options and select "Even pages only" (if you printed the odd pages first).

    With Windows XP Professional SP 3: I recently restored a hard drive from a backup. The hard drive included the Windows files. Now when I shut down the PC (by any of the several methods), the PC will slowly advance to the Shutting Down Windows screen,
    and then quit. I have allowed it to remain in this state for over 30 minutes, but the PC does not shut down. My only means to shut down now is to shut off power to the PC. How do I correct this?

    DB:3.02:Pc Shut Down Fails zj

    I understand that your computer is unable to fully shutdown.
    What happens when attempting to shutdown from safe mode?
    To access safe mode:
    1. Start computer
    2. Repeatedly tap on F8 key of keyboard until "Windows Advanced Options Menu" appears
    3. Usethe arrow keys from keyboardto select"Safe Mode" and press Enter key.
    Once in safe mode, try to shutdown.
    If shutdown is successful, this indicates that a startup program is preventing shutdown.
    If shutdown is not successful, this indicates that a BIOS update is needed. Determine your computer make/ model, use that information to determine make of BIOS. Use this information to obtain updates.
    Hope this helps

    After installing my printer and trying to shut down I am left with a screen saying 'Shutting down' but nothing happens. I turned the power off but the screen just comes back the same each time. It seems that this is a common problem and has something to do with the printer driver. But until I know how to shut down I can't do anything. Can anyone please help - I am a complete novice.

    Sorry, failed to say it could be longer then 5 seconds for some systems.  :smileyvery-happy:

     

    By the way the printer driver you installed.  Hope it was the correct one for Vista either 32 bit or 64 bit depending on Vista OS you have.

    DB:3.01:Bb10 Simulator - Proper Shut Down? z8



    Dumb question. How do I do a proper shut down of the simulator? The first time I looked around, I couldn't find anything, so I just left it running (for weeks). VMware handled my laptop being put into sleep mode many, many times just fine.

    Is there a better way than simply doing a forced shutdown of the VM?







    Solved!

    peter9477 wrote:The battery icon is running inside the simulator. I meant look for a menu in VMWare itself, probably along the top frame of the window somewhere. Whatever shuts VMWare down cleanly should be good enough for the simulator. The real device does have a power button that, if you press it for 4s straight, does a controlled shutdown. (Less than that, it shows a dialog with Cancel/Lock/Restart options.)

    Yeah, the VMware menu option is "force shut down" -- why I was calling it a forced shutdown.

    What is the correct procedure to shut down the vCenter Server when Heartbeat is installed?

    We are performing a complete shut down of the infrastructure because of a Power-related activity in the datacenter, so we need to understand the order in which the nodes and services are to be stopped and brought back up.

    DB:3.01:Controlled Shut-Down kz


    You can stop and shutdown the secondary node if that's what you want. When you go to stop applications on the active node, it does just that. When bringing the active node up, you will need to "start applications" if you didn't reboot. If you reboot, I think it automatically brings the vCenter services up.

    DB:3.01:Windows 7 Shutdown Shut Down Timer Is To Short For Theme Sound To Complete j3


    Microsoft has been coming out with allot of theme packs lately. I really like that they do this. On the other hand, Microsoft needs to also include a shut down timer changer to allow the "Shut Down Theme Sound” to end before it continues to complete
    the shut down process. So my question is: is there a way to alter the shutdown timer that windows uses to terminate each application? Each application seems to only have 5 seconds before the app termination window pops up and some of Microsoft’s new theme
    pack "Shut down" sounds take 10 seconds to complete. It really annoys me to get these pop-up app termination windows. I like to feel that I have a rock solid system that I am doing my everyday tasks on. These app termination pop ups at shut down make me feel
    that Windows 7 is a cheap piece of junk of an OS that I'm working on.

    DB:3.01:Windows 7 Shutdown Shut Down Timer Is To Short For Theme Sound To Complete j3

    Btw, It doesn't work. I just changed the shutdown sound to a different file. I think that windows isn't trying to kill the service and that it is just informing the user about any app or service that is taking longer than normal to complete.It then will
    kill the service to the time that is set in the regestry. The darkened informing screen seems to have nothing to do with the time to kill setting. This informing feature seems to be By Design.

    VAIO Hardware Diagnostics
    Restore C drive

    I did every test that Vaio Hardware Diagnostics recommended and everything is running perfectly. No errors were detected. When I close the Vaio Recovery System window the system (windows 7 HP) starts normally, so I don't want to restore the system.

    Do I have any BIOS problem?
    Should I do some kind of BIOS update?
    Where can I find this update?

    Please help me.

    Hello,
    Welcome to the User Discussion Forums.
    Can you boot normally and shut down with safe mode running?
    Please boot your computer pressing [F8] a few times after the VAIO logo. you will see an "advanced boot options " screen
    Choose Safemode with Networking
    choose the Admin account (if it exists)

    Since the rescue partition works. BIOS is fine since you can POST without issue.
    If you can boot and shut down within safemode perform the following :

    once in the admin (or main) account enter MSConfig.
    Choose Selective startup
    hide Microsoft items in services and disable all startup items.

    Reboot normally
    then shut down normally,
    if it shuts down normally one of the disabled items are causing the hangup, then turn things back on in a process of elimination till you find your cause.

    There are a couple of fixes i didn't have time to try.  Something i found on Norton's community forum.  I believe it changes certain defaults in the registry.
     
    One of the fixes is a tool at this link:

    What needs to happen is to unregister one of our dll's - buShell.dll
    Start a command shell
    Select Start menu / Run... / type cmd without the quotes
    Next you will change directories to
    type cd \Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\Backup with the quotes
    Then you will unregister the dll
    type regsvr32 /u buShell.dll
    a dialog should be shown with the following text : DllUnregisterServer in buShell.dll succeeded.

    I have Windows XP Home Edition SP3. Over the years when I get ready to shut down there is a message(installing update (#) of (#). do not shut down computer. It will shut down automatically when update is complete.) This has
    worked great until this past week.Usually it only takes a few seconds or minutes. Now the update never completes. One night I left it on all night but in the morning nothing had changed - still the blue screen saying the update
    was being installed. Nothing I could do would stop or cancel theoperation. I had to unplug the computer to shut it down. The next day it powered up fine and after finishing my work I went through the normal shutdown with
    the same message updates being installed.I left it on for the afternoon but nothing finished. Again I had to unplug to shut down. The Mcafee security system has not found anything wrong so I am wondering if anyone has any ideas what
    might be wrong or how to fix it. Thanks

    turn on the computer and at the start up press F8 and enter the safe mode. Now once you enter the safe mode do a system restore to a point when the computer had not installed those updates. Now to avoid such issues, when you go to windows update site,
    do not select express update installation. Rather go for custom and select only few upadtes and install it. Follow this untill you finish installing all theupdates. If you select express installation we would not know which update is actually casuing
    this issue. Hope this will resolve the issue.Regards, h9ck3r.

    Do a clean reinstall.

    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.

    Firefox 6.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html

    Uninstall your current Firefox version.
    Do not remove personal data when you uninstall the current version.

    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.

    It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.

    Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.

    DB:2.98:When Shutting Down Keeps Telling Me I Have A Program Running How Do I Find It To Shut It Down am


    Hi dgentz43,

    Well, it could take quite a bit of effort to figure out what that program might be that is holding things up. What PC are you using, what OS? These things would be helpful in detirming the best steps forward. I've provided links for Windows 7 below, but there are similar documents available for other versions of windows if you need them.

    First, make sure that all of your software and drivers are up to date, by running HP Support Assistant and Windows Update to check for and update anything that needs updated.

    Updating Drivers and Software with Windows Update (Windows 7, Vista, XP)

    Check for a virus or other malware on the system.

    Using Windows Defender to Prevent Malware Problems (Windows 7)

    Resolving and Preventing Viruses on Your Computer (Windows 7, Vista, XP)

    Did the problem start at some point, say after installing something new? If so, consider uninstalling whatever the new thing was to see if that solves the problem.

    Uninstalling Software (Windows 7)

    Did the problem start at a known point in the past? If so, you may be able to use the Microsoft System Restore tool to back the computers system files up to a restore point saved prior to when you first experienced the problem.

    Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 7)

    If none of that works, try using the Microsoft System Configuration Utility to narrow down the software or process causing the problem by preventing software and services from starting.

    Using Microsoft System Configuration (Windows 7)

    Hopefully this helps.

    After running this recent update, my laptop running Vista 64-bit will not shut down; instead I get a blue screen and then it restarts with a message the Windows did not shut down properly. I ran System File Scan from command prompt and the result was "Windows
    Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."
    How do I fix Windows without having to do a complete re-install?

    I also ran a ISO repair disk that gave me the following:
    Partition Table Repair Error Code = 0x490

    DB:2.97:Shutting Down My Computer kd


    windows vista does not completely shut down my computer! It shuts down partially, but I must still push the off button for a complete shut down of my computer. What's the problem and solution to fixing this problem?

    DB:2.97:Shutting Down My Computer kd

    If you are using the Start menu power button, it could be it is set to Sleep instead of Shutdown.
    To change the setting: Control Panel - Power Options - under "Select a power plan" click on "Change plan settings" - under "Change settings for the plan" click on "Change advanced power settings" - on "Advanced settings" tab expand "Power buttons and lid"
    - expand "Start menu power button", set both options to "Shutdown"

    Hope I could help

    Microsoft Surface wont shut down.
    Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.
    We're just collecting some error info,and then
    we'll restart for you. (0% complete)
    Have had the above message for an hour with nothing happening.
    If this was my laptop I could remove the battery. How do I force shutdown and restart on a Surface ?

    I purchased a TV show on Friday night, but my laptop locked up and I had to shut it down before the download was complete. Part of the file is on my computer, but it is corrupted and I get an error message when I try to either access or "Check for Purchases". How do I re-download?

    What does this do exactly? How does it's effect differ from1) powering the drive down and 2) Pressing the "Reset" button on the back of the drive? Once "Shut Down" has been invoked, will there be a WD Quick View option to do the reverse, such as "Restart", for example?

    DB:2.97:Wd Quick View "Shut Down" fj


    Thanks Vadir

    So what does the WD Quick View "Shut Down" option do then? And what do you subsequently have to do to make the MBL operational again?

    Cheers.

    DB:2.97:Iphone Apps Stop Responding jx



    I frequently have issues with apps on iPhone 6 freezing. I have to shut the phone down and restart it. One example is the Messages app. I have done a complete reset of the phone and issues persist. Very disappointed with this phone. Do you have any suggestions for how to resolve this?

    DB:2.97:Iphone Apps Stop Responding jx







    Here I am to save the day beauxzeaux! May I ask how much total device memory and available device memory do you have? Also, the device freezes only when you are in the messaging app? If so, I suggest deleting some of the long text message threads, reboot, and retest. If the total available device memory is low then you may want to delete some media from the device. A great way to supplement your storage is with Verizon Cloud. If you have the More Everything plan plan than you get 25GB of Verizon Cloud storage for free. How awesome is that!

    Thank you

    DB:2.97:How To Shut Down A Cm Subscriber Gracefully 8d



    I have to physically move a Callmanager subscriber and would like to know how best to shut it down with minimum impact. The cluster is running 8.0.3.

    I know we can just shut down the server via the cli but was hoping we could do this in a more control way, move phones off it and then shut down.

    BTW I'm new to CUCMs!

    Thanks

    DB:2.97:How To Shut Down A Cm Subscriber Gracefully 8d


    Hey Patrick,

    Yes, this is fully expected This will actually move the phones over

    to where you need them to be in preparation for the shutdown of the Sub.

    Cheers!
