Start up after mains off

  Switcher 16:54 10 Nov 2007

Another friend's computer. This time if it is shut down normally it restarts normally. However if the 13A plug supplying the mains is removed after shutting down normally, then replaced, then when it restarts it comes it freezes with a dark blue screen - not the BSOD. It then has to be shutdown by holding the start button for four seconds after which it starts with the screen advising of an abnormal shutdown. If normal start is then selected it starts normally. This friend likes to pull out all plugs at night so this is a bit of a nuisance. Any suggestions as to why this is happening.

Possibly battery? Do some time checks unplug for an hour say if it starts ok try a bit longer give you some indication

Good suggestion eedcam. Friend is experimenting with that. Meanwhile it does seem time related so far.
