windows vista shuts down during bootup
What are the reasons for Windows Vista® shutting down during boot up?
Windows Vista® has many issues probably because it's relatively new. One of the interesting issues is that Windows Vista® tends to shut down during boot up. There are many reasons why this could happen. The reasons could be related to hardware and to software, more precisely to Windows Vista®. They aren't that hard to figure out and in some cases they can be fixed in a couple of minutes. These are the possible reasons for Windows Vista® shutting down during the booting process:
- Hardware Issues
- Issue with Windows Vista® Installation
- Issues with a newly installed programs
When it comes to hardware causing problems, it's easily detected and in most cases easily fixed. In this case of Windows Vista® shutting down during boot up is related to the computer's power supply. Depending on operating system and hardware used sometimes if there is a serious problem like power supply unit overheating or the operating system will force a shutdown, on the other hand, some hardware manufacturers build them in that way if the situation threatens the entire computer. One simple way to test if the power supply is the issue is to get close to the cooler and try to feel if the fan is spinning and how hot the air is. In case the air is too hot or that the fan isn't spinning, it means that you need to buy new power supply unit.
Issue with Windows Vista® Installation
Disks used to transfer and install any operating system or applications are still not made well enough so as to be able to withstand scratches. Because of the way that the data is written to a disk, if a certain part is scratched it can render the disk useless, or at the very least, have serious errors on it. When that happens during the installation is that certain files don't get copied or are not placed in the right folders or named correctly and everything doesn't work the way it should. That basically means that the only way to solve this issue is to completely reinstall Windows Vista® from scratch.
The third issue that could be cause of Windows Vista shutting down during the boot up is an error in some newly installed programs. The way to solve this problem is to use system restore and restore your system to a time before the problem appeared.
