HP Pavilion that will not shut off
Posted on 2013-12-01
Problem...HP Pavilion Entertainment PC. When you go to Windows, and shut down, the screen signifies it's shutting down and goes black, however the lights along the function bar is still lit up as well as the power light.
After about 5 minutes it starts up again by itself and does not signify that it was shut down improperly or anything.
IF, however, I take the battery out and use only the AC power, I can shut down the laptop properly. Also, if I hold the power button down and force the shut down, it will stay off.
I also have to note that I used two different batteries. I had purchased a larger cell batter and now have put in the original battery.
And finally have to note that I don't see a battery usage icon on the task bar.
What should I be looking for?
This is driving me bonkers.
