    System DOESNT shut down


    Recently I got this problem, that my laptop doesnt shut down through Shut down or restart. Windows looks like turned off, but my fan keeps spinning. So only black screen and fan running at almost full speed. Because that my computer also cannot restart, and the real problem comes when updates are trying to install in boot up. The only way I can shut down my system is hold power key, or take out battery, I dont know whats worse win 8.1 64bit all legal.

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center


    To eliminate something else you could run this batch file---

    dism.bat

    It contains this---

    Click image for larger version

    Download it, right click it & click Properties & Unblock it & right click it & Run as administrator.
    It takes 2 hours or so to finish.
    Reboot after it is done.

    You can leave it run in the background if you wish.
    Videos will be jerky if you do.

    Post back with results please.
