event log 100 and 200 bootup and shutdown.

Question: event log 100 and 200 bootup and shutdown.

My 3 week old HP laptop is booting up and shutting down very slowly.Have tried all the usual cleanups and start up program disable stuff but it's as slow as ever. It's got AMD Turion x2 cpu and 2gb Ram surely it shouldn't be this slow?Anybody any idea? Event log keeps coming up with event log 100 on start up and event log 200 on shutdown stating both these processes are taking too long, but how do i fix it???

Preferred Solution: event log 100 and 200 bootup and shutdown.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

BACKGROUND:

Prior to upgrading to Windows 10, my system was running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. When running my previous OS (WIN 7) I rarely had errors listed in Event Viewer. Now after upgrading to Windows 10, I get errors/warnings I never used to get under Windows 7.

The error I would like help with today is of the "Critical" level in Event Viewer.

PROBLEM:

After doing a normal shutdown, and then booting my system, I check Event Viewer and always find the following critical error:

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

Answer:Critical error Event ID 41 after every shutdown and bootup.

RESOLVED:

Since placing this thread, I was addressing other errors I found in the event logs. One of those had to do with "Metadata staging failed".

Researching about this error let me to the URL:

http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cras...-failed-3.html

where poster Saammy gave the following possible solution:

I have the solution for the problem.
Searches on regedit for the following entry: DeviceMetadataServiceURL
There you change the URL in the following: http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc
after you have closed the editor is saved the change.
Now the problem is solved and it will also re-loaded device information.

As instructed, I used regedit and searched for "DeviceMetadataServiceURL", and it's value was set to:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Link...69&clcid=0x409

I changed the value to "http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc" and then rebooted.

The end result was that this did indeed fix the "Metadata staging failed" errors, and interestingly enough the Event ID 41 is no longer showing up in the event logs after shutdown/reboot. I did 5 shutdown/reboot sequences... 1 per hour, and neither problem has occurred since making the above change.

Now, this is a thread I am starting just in case anyone else has run into this issue but, it looks like I have found the solution: https://www.tenforums.com/bsod-cras...-event-id-41-after-every-shutdown-bootup.html

Ok, I have had this Windows 10 install from September 2015 until now and I am not going to redo it from scratch. The error 41 would only occur when I was using Hybrid shutdown mode but never without it. Also, it was a highly random issue, sometimes, it would occur and sometimes, it would not occur for the longest time.

I have gone from a Gigabyte Z170 and i7 6700k to an FX 8300 with Asus 970 Pro Aura on this build. I now have 2 x 1TB SSD but, I was also using a 180GB Intel SSD and a Adata 480GB SSD at one point, I just cloned the Windows 10 install over each time. I tried different sata cables, different sata drivers, tried using minimal hardware and even a different keyboard.

I am now on a 2 x Sapphire Fury setup, was on a EVGA 980 Ti, used a R9 380 and even had a R9 290x before the 980 Ti. I did the proper driver cleaning without issue and tried different video drivers as well. Recently, the problem appeared to more often and a lot less random.

After applying that solution above, it appears to have been resolved. However, I will keep this thread updated just in case.

Note: To those who want to just bash windows, DON'T! THis is meant to help people who may be running into this problem like I was for the longest time. It was only in the install of Window... Read more

Out of the blue I get 3 event errors when I boot up my Home Premium 64 bit. First time in two years.

Event ID 7006:
The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureActions with the following error:
Access is denied.

I don't have AVG. I have Agnitum Firewall, Panda Antivirus (Free).

Event ID 7009:

A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the IPsec Policy Agent service to connect.

Event ID 7000:

The IPsec Policy Agent service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

When I checked the windows services table, I noticed that IPsec has in fact been started but probably not in a timely fashion. How do I get rid of these 3 annoying errors although I don't notice any performance problems in my laptop?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Three event errors on bootup: Event ID 7006, 7000 and 7009

Hi Atom.

"Event ID 7006:
The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureActions with the following error:
Access is denied."

These events are normal because of Panda Cloud Antivirus' self-protection feature.

"Event ID 7009:

A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the IPsec Policy Agent service to connect."

Follow the instructions from here:

Event ID 7009 — Basic Service Operations

You can put new value as 60000 instead of 30000.

The Event ID 7000 should disappear when you boot your laptop next time.

Hope this helps.

Your NI Measurement Studio driver appears to be causing problems.

Probably caused by : NIPALK.sys
It's outdated by 11 years, if you wish to keep the program I suggest you update the driver.

We have a Lenovo T440s laptop that had a failing drive. We manage to clone the systems partition and manage to repair a where after the clone, the MBR was corrupted and needed to be repaired using the Windows 7 DVD.Everything else seems fine and we ran chkdsk to make sure their no errors (it repaired a few using the DVD in order to get it to boot and then ran fixmbr to repair the boot records).However the only issue we are facing is everytime we do a proper shutdown or reboot, the machine will boot up saying that windows has not properly shutdown and to select "start windows normally". Any ideas what can cause this issue and what can we do to fix it.I am unsure if maybe the corruption caused this (as the recovery partition and the MBR partition were both lost). I reformatted the recoveyr partition into a NTFS drive since I couldn't recovery that partition by itself.I dont have access to that laptop at the moment as the user took it on vacation till next week but was looking into inputs as to what I can do to resolve this.I also checked the system logs and it shows "windows was shutdown uncleanly" and such but we did shut it down using the normal windows shutdown button and restart button, both of which cause this error.

Answer:T440S - Windows Did Not ShutDown Properly Warning Upon BootUp after proper shutdown/restart

You do not mention what OS the laptop is running, but if if it shuts down in safe mode successfully, then it most likely is some driver or program that is hanging, so that would be one thing to check in the Windows Event Logs for any services or applications with errors.    Using the Filter Current Log feature in Event Viewer can help too..   Disabling startup items using Windows Built in MSConfig.exe, and then rebooting may also help pinpoint any misbehaving applications. Also check to be sure you have the latest drivers installed, and update any you can. It also would not hurt to run Windows built in System File Check tool either.   It will check to see if all the system files are correct, and attempt to replace any corrupt or missing files from backups stored in the Windows Component Store. To run System File Checker Right Click on the Start Menu and select Command Prompt (Admin)In the Administrator Command Prompt window, type:   sfc /scannow Note: Let the System File Check scan run until it completes.  I usually appears to hang at about 20%, but just wait and it will eventually complete, but may take up to an hour to finish depending on the system. Once it completes, it will give one of the following results: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations"  (If you get this message, then system file corruption was ...

Answer:BSOD - Event ID 6008 Previous Shutdown was Unexpected - need total shutdown

Hi -

Most of the 11 BSODs list NVIDIA video as the probable cause.

1. Update your NVIDIA video drivers -

Code:

nvlddmkm.sys Tue Mar 16 22:00:40 2010 (4BA037C8)
nvBridge.kmd Tue Mar 16 21:31:37 2010 (4BA030F9)

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

I recently switched from a mechanical HDD to a SSD. In Windows, it performs great. Good WEI and a good benchmark score on the one benchmark I ran. Programs load very quickly, especially iTunes, which was previously excruciatingly slow.

Problem is it takes much longer than my mechanical HDD took to startup. Going through Event Viewer, 60 of the 75 seconds it takes to boot up are due to device initialization. Tracking down the error code, I got

I'm a new member here and found this forum while investigating a couple of warnings I get in the windows 7 event viewer. The first one is when the system boots, followed by when the system shuts down. I will add that the reboots are of my doing, not crashes. when I reboot, I don't see any errors, and it seems pretty speedy to me coming from a dinosaur p4 2.4 single CPU system. Any insight is appreciated as I am not sure these are anything I need to be concerned about.

Recently, my pc is taking a lot of time 2 boot up. I have 2 stare at the welcome screen 4 a few secs, then the wallpaper and the taskbar applications come up, but no icons on the desktop. After maybe 20 secs the icons show up but then the wallpaper vanishes, and comes back a few secs later. After all this, the pc connects 2 the network. Why has it gone so slow? I just have avast! antivirus, the xfire firewall, the HP imaging solution center and Free Download Manager in the tray.

Also, the cp refuses 2 shutdown: It gowes up 2 the point of displaying "Windows is shutting down" and stays there 4 ever (I have 2 manually switch it off).Why?

How can I speedup my windows boot up and shutdown?
 

Answer:Faster bootup and shutdown

What OS do you use?

Windows 8.1/8 uses Fast Startup to launch the OS, except during a reboot/restart, where it performs a full cycle.

Switching to a SSD will provide better loading times, far better than software alternatives.

Hello

I'm new in this forum and hopefully someone can help me. I have been trying to solve the extremely slow boot-up and shut-down on my wife's Dell laptop. I'm fairly knowledgeable about computers but this has got me stumped.

Start-up time from the moment I power on till I reach the the Windows logon screen takes in excess of 10 minutes. After logging in, it takes probably another minute more before the computer is ready for use. Shutdown is slightly faster - about 3 minutes.

I've downloaded and used MS Fixit and though it detects a problem (Windows Update component are configured incorrectly) and claims to fix it, the problems continue. I have also used sfc/scannow to attempt any repairs. The feedback tells me that corrupt files were found but it was unable to fix some of them. I'm attaching the CBS log file.

I've also tried the Startup Repair utility but it also tells me that the problem cannot be fixed. I'm not sure if it's related, but I also noticed the absence of any restore points for tp roll back to. I manually created Restore Points just last night, but the system shows that I don't have any today!

Apart from these issues, the laptop seems to be running fine, except for the occasional slowdowns when the computer suddenly seems busy for one reason or another.

Appreciate any help I can get.

It is taking my pc and abnormally long time to bootup, about 4 minutes. It is also taking awhile to shutdown, about 2 minutes. When the pc is in use, it is also very slow. I've scanned with Kaspersky, A-Squared, and also Spybot... found nothing. I have done a disk cleanup and also a defrag.

Recently when I started WinXP (Home w/sp2) I got to the point where it said loading your settings, then it said logging off. Then it would try to start again, then it would log off again. This loop would just go on and on. I tried booting into safe mode but the same problem persisted. I tried to turn off auto reboot, and go to last known good configuration all to no avail. I've seen several posts here that had issues like this but blamed SP2. I've had SP2 for about a month with no problem. I went on the Internet at work to see if I could find info on the problem, and on several tech sites but found none. I did find a great article by Charlie White (Windows XP Crashed? Here's Help) that enabled me to get back into my system. It entailed using DOS commands to manipulate system files. It was tedious, but it worked. The problem is that I'm not sure what caused the problem in the first place. I update NAV regularly, and run both Ad-aware & Spybot. I'm afraid to shut my system down now for fear of not getting back in again. Can someone please check my log file and see if they can see something I cant? I already see two things that are suspicious to me: organic.exe and babes.scr
Thanks in advance for any help/info that you can give.

A few days ago I installed windows 7 64 bit on a new harddrive and proceed to move over files from the old harddrive. Everything was going smoothly until I booted up anything that had a high graphic requirement. Within 2-3 mins after booting up a game the computer would do a complete power off without freezing. I ran core temp to check the CPU temp and it was somewhere around 64 C. Not terriblely high but still a concern.

Frustrated with this, I figured I might as well replace the processor cooling unit just in case. Purchased a new unit installed it, reset the motherboard now when powering on the computer powers for 5-6 seconds and powers off. No beeps etc can be heard from the motherboard. After the first attempt each attempt after only lasts 2-3 seconds, therefore I can surmise its due to over heating... However I have no idea how this can be possible? It should be noted that I was an idiot and put wayyyy to much Thermal Paste the first time I did the boot up; however, I scrapped it off as best I could and re-applied the right amount after finding out it can actually act as an insulator. Any chance this could have fried my processor?

Most frustrating part is the computer was completely fine up until a few days ago when I decided to switch to windows 7 64 bit from 32 bit. No problems like this before, and I did the windows diagonistic before upgrading to 64 bit and it said everything was going to be fine.

Answer:Computer shutdown 5 seconds after bootup

I have Vista Business 32bit (not dual boot) and it is driving me nuts with random hangs at bootup and shutdown. These seem to occur about 5-10% of the time, forcing resets. A normal bootup, once I get beyond the BIOS activities, involves the following visuals:

1st - moving progress bar at bottom of screen
2nd - all black screen
3rd - ReadyBoost USB drive light comes on (stays on for entire session)
4th - video fan throttles back to lower rpms as the driver settings kick in
5th - mouse pointer appears
6th - Vista Circle appears
7th - Log on screen appears.

Sometimes, the progress bar just keeps going and never gets to the black screen. Sometimes, it hangs after black screen but before the USB light. Most of the time, though, it hangs between the USB light and the video card fan slowdown. In all cases, the hard drive activity light stops its fast, random, blinking and goes to a steady 4 pulses followed by a quick double-pulse, and repeats this for hours before I hit the reset button. My key to a successful boot in the making is the video card noise reduction. If I get that far, it always boots.

Shutdown hangups simply display the "Shutting Down" message, for as many hours as I let it.

My hard drive passes all tests from within Vista, a command prompt, or bootable utilities. If it is a driver or hardware problem, would it boot successfully most of the time? Other possibilities?

Answer:Vista often hangs on bootup and shutdown

I am having exactly the same problem. I tried resetting BIOS settings to its defaults and it worked for some time, but unfortunately it started again...

Hi There,

Please refer to my attached file.

Several tests have shown that I only get this BSOD 99% of the time either shutting down or restarting the PC from the Windows 7 Ultimate environment.

During installation of new nVidia drivers, I had to use safe mode at different points and at no stage during restarting from safe mode did I experience the BSOD.

There are 2 dump files in the attached .rar

I believe there may be either a driver or software fault causing this BSOD issue but I do not fully understand how to read the files to find the cause of the problem.

Your timely help on this matter would be much appreciated.
Thankyou.

I am trying to help my father-in-law clean up his emachines T3302 computer. Right now from a cold start it takes about 5 minutes for the blank desktop to show up and then another 5 minutes for the taskbar and desktop icons to show up. Double clicking on "My Computer" takes over 5 minutes for a blank window to open and another 3 minutes to get populated.

When shutting down, the "Saving settings" screen just stays there. I finally held down the front panel power button to shut down.

I have gone into MSCONFIG and deselected a lot of startup items like all of the AOL Apps, Symantec Apps, Macafee Apps, the Iomega backup apps as well as a few that were listed as unknown owner. That helped with the boot-up time when I restarted. When I then launced the "Add/Remove Software" Control panel, The screen opened right away but then seemed to get stuck with a "Please wait while building list ..." message. The hard drive activity light was only doing a quick flash every few seconds at that time. I could not shut down the control panel and a CTL-ALT-DEL did not call up the task manager.

I then re-enabled all of the disabled start up items in MSCONFIG and ran HijackThis. Here is the log:

Answer:Real Slow Bootup & Hangs During Shutdown

Bump!

Since I don't suspect that any malware or viruses areinvolved, would I be better off posting the HijackThis log in the Windows XP OS forum? I am just trying to figure what I can uninstall safely.

- As far as I can tell, his McAfee software is current but he never uninstalled the Norton stuff when he got McAfee.

- He doesn't use AOL for anything anymore.

- He has an HP multifunction printer/scanner/fax

- He has an external Iomega HD and says he is using the Iomega backup software. It looked like the software may be trying to start up twice on boot up.

- He is a big user of MusicMatch and is using it to catalog thousands of MP3 files on the HD.

I have reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2 on my a computer that I built and started to install other programs as usual so that I could use this computer. The Windows Update balloon saying "there are updates for your computer" (it also claimed that I could work on other things while the updates occurred. So I installed other programs--Photoshop CS2, Quicktime Pro 7, Wacom Pen Tablet software drivers. The Windows Update happened three times. 1st had about 20 different updates, I rebooted with no problems. 2ns had 35 updates including IE 7, rebooted with no problems, 3rd time had 47 updates, rebooted and now my desktop is blank. My Pen Tablet (mouse) works but I don't see any icons or the START bar. My programs still work because when I open the Windows Task Manager and choose New task, I can browse for programs.

Surfing thru other threads in this forum, I thought maybe I had a virus or malware...just have never had any error messages. so I downloaded and ran these program scans: WPFind3u, VundoFix, AntiSuperspyware. Scans came up with no find of malicious stuff, but my desktop was visible afterwards. I shut down the computer for the night and turned it on again and the same thing is happening. Is this a software or hardware issue? I'm thinking that maybe my System Fonts are corrupted, but I don't know. I've even tried starting up in safe mode. I get a black screen there--no icons on desktop.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running XP Home edition. Recently it started some odd behavior: more often than not during bootup, the process stops and a window pops up with an OK button. Text on the title bar and in the window area are undeciferrable characters. Not only that, the characters are different every time. When I select the OK button, it appears to continue to bootup normally but I do not know what the window was for. Almost, but not quite as often, it comes up at shutdown as well. It happens early in the bootup process, before selecting user account to use. At shutdown, its late in the process just before XP closes. Because of the point in the process that the window pops up, I can not do a screen capture, so I took a picture with a camera (picture is attached). I can't notice anything being hurt by it but I do not know what I am OK'ing by hitting the OK button. Also, it started after trying a virus infection clean up (combofix, as directed by a bleepingcomputer moderator). They suggested I try to find an answer in this forum. Anyone seen anything like this or have any ideas what it might be or how to get rid of it? Thanks.

Hi everyone, this is my first post! :D

down to my problem, I havnt formatted my PC in over 3years(which is unusual for me, considering I used to format once every few months). But I formatted & reinstalled windows last week as I thought it was time as my PC was so clogged up & alot of things were starting to go wrong - registry corrupting, IE giving me alot of errors and general stuff like that. As allways I downloaded & Installed all MS Updates & drivers for my devices. Installed a few applications(MS Office 2003, WinDVD, WinRAR and few others), and now when I shutdown, it takes minutes to shutdown, then about 5minutes to bootup... Considering before I reinstalled windows I could bootup & shutdown within 40seconds. I am not a PC newbie nor am I a pro, I have configured MSConfig & cleaned temp files, internet cookies etc.. but this is a new clean installation of XP.. so it should'nt have any of that?

Does anyone know what could be wrong with my PC or how I can speed up the boot/shutdown times?

Incase anyone is wondering my specs are:
WindowsXP Pro SP2
Pentium 4 3.06ghz h/t
ATI 9800xt 256MB

I recently installed a new hard drive (Seagate Momentus 7200.3 ST9250421AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb). Almost immediately, when I tried to install windows vista with the installation disc, I found that it took longer and more attempts to get the disc to load. This is not the case with my other hard drive (Hitachi 120GB 5400 RPM). It eventually loaded and installed windows with no problems. However, I noticed when I was restarting, that the shut down screen would sometimes stall for an abnormally long time, in excess of a 3 or 4 minutes. It would be understandable if it was installing updates, but it wasn?t. Then, upon startup, it would stall on a black screen after the initial boot screen and before the windows loading animation. If I leave it, sometimes it eventually gives me an error that telling me that no operating system could be found. If I force a restart, sometimes it would go through, but for some reason the only guaranteed way that I have to get windows loaded is to go into bios, load setup defaults and click save and exit. It works every time. It makes me think that something is wrong with my bios (except my bios are up to date) because why else would I have to load setup defaults nearly every time I start the computer? I?m certain that the hard drive is playing a role in this too, as if I reconnect my other hard drive, I don?t have this problem. So, if anyone could help out.

Hello all,
I recently purchased an Alienware 17 R3 and I am having an issue when I use my external speakers
when I power up or power down it pops. I am going to list my hardware setup below. I couldn't locate
anything for this specific problem. Audio plays fine when I am logged into Windows.

Alienware 17R3
Graphics Amp (with Nvidia Quadro 4600 for the moment)
Onkyo M282B 2 Ch Stereo Amp
JBL 62 Studio Monitors

I am running RCA to 3.5" Phono from the amp to the Headphone jack on the Laptop.  The laptop
running stand alone (integrated speakers) does not pop. I haven't tried with the external speakers
but without the graphics amp. I almost think it's the graphics amp powering down that is causing
the pop sound. It seems like the laptop is already off and a second later it pops which causes the
amp to go into protection mode.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Brett

Answer:New Alienware 17 R3 weird audio pop at bootup and shutdown.

Ok I wanted to eliminate the Graphics Amp from the equation so I shut down and unplugged the
Graphics Amp and booted just the laptop and it made the same pop. So at this point I'm thinking
driver (but there doesn't seem to be a newer version of the Recon 3Di driver at the moment) or
perhaps interference.

Hi David ,Welcome to BC HijackThis forum. I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.Please refrain from making any changes to your system (updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might prolong handling your log and make the job for both of us more difficult.One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.A backdoor Trojan can allow an attacker to gain control of the system, log keystrokes, steal passwords, access personal data, send malevolent outgoing traffic, and close the security warning messages displayed by some anti-virus and security programs.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the Operating System.

Hi, two problems...my USB ports stop working after a little while, upon bootup. It will stop detecting anything that I plug-in. Second problem...I get a BSOD when I try to restart or shutdown my computer. After 10-15 minutes, it says "Driver_Power_State_Failure", then reboots. I need help!

Answer:BSOD on shutdown & USB ports stop working after bootup

I only analyzed the last 3 dump files. The rest were from November and you didn't have any in December.

This one appears to blame hpdskflt.sys - a component of the Hewlett-Packard Mobile Data Protection System Disk Filter

Please uninstall the HP Mobile Data Protection system and see if that stops the BSOD's. If so, and if you wish to reinstall the HP software, please download a fresh copy from the HP website in order to install it.

Also, Please update or remove these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager. Please use the following instructions to locate the most current drivers:

Quote:




How To Find Updated Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Hello, I have an x61s running Windows Vista business (32 bit).  I'd like to be able to close the lid while the system is shutting down. That is I initiate a shutdown by selecting "shut down" from the Windows Start menu, and then I close the lid of the notebook, without waiting for the sutdown to complete. Problem is that closing the lid makes the notebook go into sleep mode, even if a shutdown has already been initiated. Does anyone know how I can avoid this, so that the system will continue to shut down even though the lid is closed in the process? That would be most useful, because when I decide to shut down my computer, I want to close the lid immediately.  However, if I close the lid during regular operation (not in a shut down scenario), then I don't want the system to shut down; In this case the system going to sleep following the lid close event is fine. I tried setting a "Lid closed action delay" of 2 minutes (in power manager, global power settings, advanced settings for the "lid closed" event), but this does not seem to work, the system still goes to sleep immediately after I close the lid.Message Edited by astra4 on 12-17-2008 08:22 PM

Several times over the last few weeks, I noticed that my computer (Dell Optiplex 9020) had rebooted while left on overnight. Then today, without warning, the light blue (not BSOD) WIn 10 Restarting screen appeared while I was doing something noninvasive, like checking email. Then the system rebooted.

The event viewer offered the following clues:

Event ID 109
The kernel power manager has initiated a shutdown transition.
Shutdown Reason: Kernel AP

Event ID 1074
The process C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe (MARK-9020) has initiated the restart of computer MARK-9020 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found

What is "Thermal Event"?

Answer:Thermal Event Shutdown

Hello,

It basically means that your system overheated and shut itself down so as not to damage any components.
Reasons for this range from dust on the heatsink or a fan not spinning to heatsink not being seated correctly.

What is the make/specifications of the system and roughly how old is it?

Hello.

Four days ago my computer switched off just seconds after the XP logo appeared during the bootup process. Since then it has switched off in the same manner and at exactly the same moment whenever I have switched the computer on.

At first I suspected a problem had developed on the motherboard or with my computer's power-switch but after four days of tests I have finally found a way to get XP to load and for my computer to then be ready for normal use. I have to ensure that the XP installation disc is in the CD-Rom drive before I switch the machine on, and that the BIOS has been set to boot the computer from the CD-Rom drive. If I boot by this method, everything is fine. But obviously this is a tedious way by which to boot every day.

One of the first remedies I tried was running sfc.exe /scannow to get the Windows Protection program to check the XP files on my hard disc and to replace any that may have become corrupted. However, after running sfc.exe TWICE, the computer shut-down again the next time I rebooted (always at the same point, several seconds after the XP logo appears).

Yesterday I used the Repair facility which is on the XP installation disc, and after the Repair process was completed I was left with XP loaded and the computer functioning normally. However, the next time I rebooted from the hard drive (and without the installation disc being in the CD-Rom drive) the power again shut-off seconds after the XP logo appeared on the screen.

I have been encountering slow shutdown times on my desktop recently. I looked in the event logs to try and find some clue but they were not that helpful to the less than technically minded

1: EVENT_TCPIP_TCP_CONNECT_LIMIT_REACHED
I had a lot of the above that were listed both as information and warning

2: also W32time came up several time as both info and warning

3: NetBT came up several times - with
"the name MSHOME could not be registered on the interface with IP address xxx, the machine with the ip address yyy did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine.

The only hardware I have installed recently is a Belkin wireless card (whose problems I have posted elsewhere ) This may have something to do with it but I am not sure. Briefly my setup is a wireless laptop (no problems) and a wired desktop (which has been re-configured to run on wireless)

I am running Windows XP pro with SP2 on an AMD system with 2 gigs ram

I have run several virus checks and I run spybot regularly, I have a belkin router to connect through to my blueyonder broadband.

Any advice?

I plug in a flashdrive, scan it, copy a few files, pull it out (it had 3 files on it, never have viruses. Never.). Windows suddenly decides to shutdown. Waited :30 sec, rebooted, logged in and went to Event Viewer>System and filter for 6008 events. Zero, no listings. Can't find anything in the past 20 minutes that looks like a shutdown.

What gives? How can Event Viewer not show the shutdown? How can I find out what the burp was? I've had no issues lately (since a new card in July), Windows has been flawless. I hate it when Windows does something like this and I can't track it down.
Thanks in advance for any interest,

I moved this post from general discussions where it got completely buried.

I'm sure every one of us is getting these errors in windows 10

This appears to be a general issue with windows 10, I always get the following errors on shutdown:

The VMware Workstation Server service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

The User Data Access_Session1 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

I suspect the Event ID 7031 Service Control Manager errors occurred initially in windows 8.1 upgrade and was resolved by Microsoft. It looks like the problem is back especially with the new windows 10 services (with the exception of the VMWare Workstation server)

I suspect this error also affects shutdown/reboot times.

I tend to run my computer 24/7, but within the last 3 days, I had my computer shutdown while I was away with an Event ID 109 with the following reason:






The kernel power manager has initiated a shutdown transition.

Shutdown Reason: Battery



Thing is, I am on a desktop computer, not a laptop with a UPS connected. And it is an APC UPS with Powerchute Personal Edition installed. Although this is a Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade with Powerchute Personal Already installed. Does anyone know of a reason why Kernel-Power is shutting my computer down for this battery reason?

Answer:Windows 10 Pro Desktop Shutdown with Event ID 109

Hi:

Until someone more expert arrives...

What does the PCPE dashboard tell you?
Are you hearing any beeps from the APC UPS?
How old is the APC UPS?
Are you sure everything is plugged in and working properly, including the data cable from the back of the PC tower to the UPS?

Reason for asking: I had a relatively new APC UPS fail after only a few months several months ago.
It was under warranty and, after calling Schneider Electric, they RMA'd the whole unit (not just the battery), no questions asked. They sent a brand new one in 2 days.
(After many years of using their products, this was a "first". But I was pleased to find that they took care of it with zero fuss. The only chore was having to haul the old unit to the UPS store for the return shipment.)
Just a thought.

Hello. First of all, I didn't know where to post this so I chose Win7 because it's what I use.

OK so this problem started about a month ago, but now it's becoming more frequent than ever. What happens is, as I'm chilling on my desktop PC, it just shuts down spontaneously, and here's the thing, since I don't have a restart button, I can't restart it, the monitor goes black (no BSOD) and even if I hold the power button too long, it won't shutdown. The only way to shut it down is to remove the power supply cord (which of course could lead to corrupted hardware, data loss, etc).

Now this mostly happens when I play games with high demanding hardware. So for this reason, I'm monitoring the CPU heat and it seems fine. Max temp goes to about 51C. OK I am now gonna post dxdiag info so you can examine all my PC specs, if you need anything else, just say so.

Thank you very much in advance!

Windows 10 64 bit, latest version, is working fine on my Toshiba i7 laptop with 8 Gb ram. But I have problems with shutdowns when I click on restart. It seems to take far too long to shutdown. I am not sure how to find out why but when checking out the event viewer, I found several shutdown errors (some critical and some warnings). So I got the following screen shots (not sure how I got there) which seem to reveal several errors during shutdown. When I click on the web link I get a non working website.

Question:
1. How do I find out what is making shutdowns so slow when I click restart? (I "think" Shutdown seems faster if I just click on shutdown instead of restart)
2. What problem do these screenshots of error indicate and how do I fix them?
Thank you
Edit:
Got to those screens: Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Component services. Event viewer(Local) -Applications and Services Logs - Microsoft -Windows - Diagnostics Performance - Operational.

Here are some recent error screenshots which occur in both shutdown and bootups.
As can be seen this is a problem that goes back to 2016.

My currently up to date windows 10 pro machine has been restarting very very frequently after I've left it for a goodly while, including nearly every night, and in trying to figger out why this is happening, I learned about this option, Display Shutdown Event Tracker. It's supposed to be in the Local Group Policy editor, but I do NOT see an option named that. I'm an admin on my machine, so I'm not sure why I can't see it, unless it's not there any longer? Moved? Who knows? I did locate the .msc for GP, and ran it explicitly as an admin, but nada. Someone had mentioned looking at the user32 events in the regular event viewer, but this is all I see there:

What I read is that this was originally for Windows 2000 but in Windows XP this was shut-off. If that is so - why do I get that pop-up?

I first detected a problem on my computer when I noticed the Windows Update icon on the bottom right on the monitor. I checked out what the updates were about and selected 1 important and 1 optional update. Normally, the updates are updated fairly quickly. However, after walking away from my computer for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, I came back to check the progress, and there was 0 % downloaded and 0 % data downloaded. The size of the files were not too large. These were the 2 updates selected:

The important update is for: Security Update Microsoft Silverlight

The 2 optional updates are for: Intel Corp Display HD Graphics 3000 and Bing Desktop

Then, after another 5 minutes, still nothing happened,so I decided to stop and shut down the update and reboot my system. That is where many of my problems began.

At this time, Windows IE no longer works. Firefox barely works, and is very unstable, but I am at least able to post this message to you now for the time being.

Problem 1
I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but I have a newly built computer and experienced some strange shutdown problems. When I shut down the computer it hangs for a couple of seconds before shutting down. It sounds like the secondary HDD start up, shuts down, starts up and shuts down again before the computer shuts down itself. This always gives me a critical warning in event viewer saying that the PC wasn't shut down properly.

Sometimes it won't shut down at all, and I have to use the power button on the case. The LED code on the motherboard always shows "D4" when computer won't shut down, which means "PCI allocation error - out of resources". HDD also makes power down/up noises. This problem I have had all since I built the computer, but after I did a clean install of Windows with diskpart, it happened that the PC would randomly shut down or enter hibernation mode with LED code "D3", which means "some of the architectural protocols are not available".

However, if I turn off "fast startup" I experience none of these problems. It happens that the PC won't shut down, just much, much more rarely. When that happens LED code shows "D5" which means "no space for legacy option ROM initialization."
What I find strange is that these codes describe problems that doesn't seem to have anything in common, but the LED codes are only from D3 to D5, which are right after eac... Read more

When I started noticing problems I also downloaded Ad-Aware and MalWareBytes. All systems run clean, but performance still sucks. Today I get the Thermal event Shutdown message again and when I look at thr event log it shows that my memeory was reduced on Oct 14th. I decide to try to go back to a restore point, and coincedientally the last restore point is Oct 14th. I run system restore, and the restore application comes back and tells me that it can't restore the computer to that day.

Hi Sorry for my english, I prefer German! My Notebook shut down automaticly after a while. The Notebook is running 7x24, but with low usage of the CPU and RAM. It does some jobs, like recording values from a connected sensor. After different running times, the Notebook shuts down.

BACKGROUND:

I'm troubleshooting a critical error message I receive in the event log. It's the same as has been previously reported here. Prior to upgrading to Windows 10, my system was running Windows 7 Pro SP1. When running my previous OS (WIN 7) I rarely had errors listed in Event Viewer. Now after upgrading to Windows 10, I get errors/warnings I never used to get under Windows 7. I have performed a clean install of Win 10 and still am receiving error messages.

The error I would like help with today is of the "Critical" level in Event Viewer.

PROBLEM:

After doing a normal shutdown, and then booting my system, I check Event Viewer and always find the following critical error:

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

So I've been in the process of putting together a HTPC. It's a little Habey 800B case with a ASRock E350-M1 motherboard running W7 64 bit. I havent had any issues with it while installing Windows or any of the misc programs (Office, MSE, XBMC, etc). But I recently turned it on in the morning and was going to let it run all day so that I could remote to it from work and work on it when I had a few free minutes. But when I got to work and finally got some time, it showed as being offline??? I figured that it had gone to sleep. So the next day I connected a monitor/keyboard/mouse to it, booted it and it showed that Windows had shut down unexpectedly. I selected the "Load Windows normally" option and then set the power options to "never" sleep. I attempted the same thing the next day, and again it was off when I tried to connect to it???

It took me a few days to get back to looking at it. After booting and messing around with it for a bit it seemed a bit sluggish and froze once, requiring a manual reboot. I checked the Event Logs and took as many screen shots as I could. I posted the screen shots below hoping that someone can give me some info from the Event log info.

Someone here at work suggested I search for the .dmp files to see if they would give any further info. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Server 2003 has a Shutdown Event Tracker that requires that you "best describe why you want to shutdown the computer". It is on by default, but can be turned off using Group Policy.

Wonderful!

Somewhere along the way, one (and only one) of my XP machines (SP2 + all updates) acquired that same "feature". The Group Policy trick mentioned above has no relevance in XP, so I can't stop this event tracker that way.

Among other things, it makes a remote shutdown impossible (unless I use an RPC terminal). Besides, it's a pain to have to type in a reason (usually "Windows F%#*ed up again") when all I want to do is to shutdown or reboot.

If it runs as a service, I can't find it in either "Services and Applications" or in "Sysinternals Process Explorer"

And another thing!!! I can't find the logged events in the Event Viewer for Application, Security, or System.

If I could find it, I'd drive a stake through its heart. How do I kill the beast?

To prove that I've taken my meds today, here's a screen dump:

System : Dimension 3000 Hello, i'm having a problem with my Mother's computer. It is shutting down (completely powering off) and will not come back on for several hours, sometimes days. When it does power back on, before booting into windows, i get an error message that reads: Alert! Previous shutdown due to thermal event. I do not know what the problem is, both the case fan and power supply fan work properly and i have removed all of the dust from inside the case, including from the cpu heatsink. The case is not missing any expansion slot covers either. When i check the logs in the bios nothing is showing up at all. The computer is out of warranty and i'm stuck on what to do? thanks.

I have had three of these shutdowns randomly occur over the last 2 days. I have no warning on when they will occur.

The computer is only 5 weeks old, so i wouldn't except an overheat issue personally. I can think of no new software i have installed since this has started. So far, it has always happened while playing a game (Diablo 3) but that is likely just coincidental, as that is what i do most on this computer

Any ideas on what to do/check?

Answer:Kernel Power Event 41 Task 63 - Random shutdown

Event ID 41 errors are primarily caused by:
- shutting down the system by holding the power button down
- overheating
- power supply issues

Install temp monitoring software (I suggest HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools )
Open up the case and point a house fan into it (on high) - see if the lessens the frequency of the Event ID 41 events
If neither of these help, then see about getting an 80+ rated PSU from a store that you can return it (if it's not needed).

Just in case, here's my usual canned speeches:

For starters:





At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

I just rebuilt with a new motherboard, new Intel 6600K, and new RAM. It's assembled on a table top rather than in the case. All other parts are from an earlier build but believed to be in good shape.

I went to sleep about 14 hours ago with my PC still running. I was doing a backup job that would take a few hours, so I just slept.

6 hours later I woke up and notice that the CPU fan is not spinning. Panic. I didn't know if the motherboard had failed, the fan had failed, or even if the PC was running. Nothing displayed on the monitor.

I shut down and rebooted successfully, getting the "Windows did not shut down properly error".

Looking at logs, I see that the backup job completed at 1236 pm and that the Windows shut down at 1237, one minute later. Coincidence? Maybe.

Windows Reliability History gives no info beyond mentioning the unexpected shutdown.

Event Viewer may have more info, but I'm not familiar enough with it to find anything useful.

Do you have any specific help on Event Viewer?

Also interested in any ideas you may have on the cause.

I'm getting a trio of critical error messages in event viewer after each shutdown:

- "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

- "Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4."

- "The previous system shutdown was unexpected."

The PC starts up fine and seems to shut down very fast - within 10-12 seconds, and there seems to be no issues with startup or shutdown. But when I stumbled onto these critical messages in event viewer I got concerned. What could be triggering this? How do I troubleshoot this? They are logged in event viewer after each shutdown/reboot.

Answer:Critical error messages in event viewer after each shutdown

Try turning Fast Start Up off in the Power Options Menu. Finding the option is a bit obscure. There are some known issues with this. It is on by default in Windows 10 and will trigger shut down errors.

Hello, my dell precision t3500 started showing symptoms of bad Heatsink since december 2015.  It has been restarting several times and showing "Previous shutdown due to thermal event.".  In the first few weeks it used to shutdown like twice a week. Currently i get a lot of shutdowns. I can't use my computer for 3 hours, it shuts down at least once every single hour. 
What i've done so far....(My solutions)
I rubbed off the heat sink compound between the processor and heatsink and applied new heatsink compound. This didn't help.  The computer was still shutting down due to thermal events.
I read on a forum where someone was having a shutdown problem just like me and a dell expert advised him to upgrade to the latest bios. I was running the latest bios at the instant when my computer started shutting down due to cpu excessive temperature. I tried downgrading the bios from A17 to A14, now the computer would stay for 3-5 hours without shutting down. Downgrading didn't help either.  I know that the old bios had a greater temperature threshold and that's the reason for the computer staying longer before detecting a excessive cpu temperature than in the A17 bios version. Ok, so processor upgrade/downgrade didn't help either.
i wen't out to a computer store and bought a new Heatsink for my dell precision t3500, i removed the old HeatSink and replaced it with the new one. The computer booted just fine, stayed up for 3 hour... Read more

Answer:Dell Precision T3500 Shutdown due to thermal event

What's the actual full error when the thermal event occurs?  Usually there are multiple temp sensors on a machine - does error say which one is causing thermal event?
I'd see what all temps actually are and monitor them.  What does HWMonitor or HWiNFO (Sensors window) say temps are when system is idle and under load? 
What CPU are you using?  Thermal shutdown threshold within a CPU is often around 100C, which usually is pretty hard to hit for a desktop (as opposed to a laptop). 
What heatsink compound are you using?  Is it making good contact but thinly applied?  You can check this by removing the heatsink - compound should be pressed out and thin enough to "see through it' evenly across surface.  A thick application has poor thermal properties because thermal compounds are much poorer conductors of heat (~8 W/mK) than copper (~400 W/mK) or aluminum (~200 W/mK).
I'd also check for dust/blockage on case air intakes and fans (including the PSU fan) - this can cause poor heat removal from the case and resulting heat buildup.

Hi, everyone! I recently upgraded from Vista to 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a month-old machine. The computer has been running 7 for several weeks, and this error just showed up within the last couple of days.

When I go to shutdown or restart, I get a screen that says Waiting for background processes to close. The screen is only up for maybe a second, with no list of what process needs to close. Then Windows shuts down normally.

I went through msconfig and determined that the RAID event monitor is the program causing the hangup. What does this mean? Has anyone else encountered problems with this? Is there any way to fix it other than just disabling the program in msconfig?

My personal opinion is that you should back-up all important data and reinstall OS. It is definitely most radical method but also most effective to fix such problems. after doing this you will have clean preinstalled OS and everything will be OK again.

So, I'm having a really weird issue.

I have a pc with a win10 Pro.
It was upgraded from Windows 8. Still in windows 8 the shutdown and the restart took like 10 minutes each time.
Upgraded to 10 expecting this not to happen.. It still does..

After alot of search, I started disabling Windows services a few blocks at a time, and after that 1 at a time.

My conclusion is that when the event viewer service is online, the computer takes forever to shutdown or reboot..
If I disable the service, the computers shutdown and restart are done in a matter of seconds..
I've tested this.

Sooo.. I'm lost here.. Tried sfc /scannow to see if that would fix something, but nothing was detected..

You can force it to shutdown. 1000 = 1 second.

Hey folks!

I've had this issue since building a new x99 system. I did a fresh install of Windows 10 and after every single shut down I've received the following Critical error:

Kernel-Power Event ID 41 Task Category (63)
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

This has been happening periodically for several weeks It doesn't happen every day so I have been just restarting and continuing on. It seems to happen when the desktop is not even being used. (i.e. middle of the night). Power settings are to never sleep. I've been running core temp because somewhere I saw that it might be related to a thermal event, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am not seeing much in the event log other than the event 6008, unexpected shutdown (with no other details). I am not getting bSOD minidumps either in the c:\windows\minidumps folder even though I do have this setup in system security. I've attached the dump files so hope that one of you can help me take a look to see if you can help me to figure it out. The last 6008 was earlier today around 2 AM PDT. Right now I am running chkdsk to see if that turns up anything. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: see updated dump file in post #3

Answer:Event 6008 unexpected shutdown Win7 Ultimate 64bit

There are numerous files missing from your upload, please run the tool again and wait for the files to be gathered then upload

I have been having an issue with my system just simply shutting down without any warning almost as if a power outage occurred. No blue screen no notifications nothing. It has happened 4 times now while playing a game in particular. When the power goes out I cant turn the computer back on for about 2 minutes or so. I initially thought it was a cpu heating issue since i had a stock cooler, I changed it for an evo 212, but the same issue applies. Could it possibly be the PSU, even though it powers the computer 99% of the time and fan seems to be working fine? I went back into the windows event viewer and I have a link of the past week of errors that have been occuring, I just dont know what they mean. any help?https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=42B9E1D1DBB4DB7C%...
specs are as follows: amd 8350 4.0ghz, gigabyte 990fx mobo, gtx 760 nvidia gpu, 650W PSU silverstone ac input 115-240Vac 60-50Hz, 8 gb ddr 3 ram.
temperatures doesnt reach more than 58 degrees under full load usually around 50 range.

this is the most recent incident.

i have noticed that my computer has been taking longer to start up and shut down lately. i have used all my resources to see and control what i am running on startup, from msconfig to spybot's startup manager, there's not a lot running there so i went to check the event viewer and it's full of errors, critical events and warnings.

I tried using MS's websites for help but they are a nightmare to use, posted this same entry in their forums but no answer yet. I'll appreciate if you can help me understand what's going on with my computer. Thanks in advance

the last critical event reads as follows (the OS is in spanish so i'll translate to what i think it should be):

Windows has started up:

Try clearing the event log. Instructions from a Dell support forum:

Start the system.
Press 'F2' to enter System Setup.
Under the Maintenance heading, highlight 'System Event Log' and press the 'Enter' key.
Highlight 'Clear System Event Log' and press the 'Enter' key.
Press the 'Esc' key twice to restart.

Check for excessive dust and proper fan operation. Sounds like it is overheating and shutting down.
