Lenovo V570 not shutting down or restarting

2019-10-29, 2:58 AM

Hi everyone, I was recently given a V570 that needed a fresh OS install. Nothing seemed out of the ordianry at first. It was given to me with Win 10 on it; and I used the disk I had bought for my tower to perform a fresh install. After a ton of updates, I started to realize one annoying issue. The computer would not shut down, restart or even wake from sleep. Once Win 10 was fully updated, I tried a few older drivers with no luck. 


Thinking maybe it was a Win 10 issue, (it was shipped with Win 7), I decided to try Win 7. It was such a pain becasuse during the install, the computer is supposed to perform a couple restarts. It would always get stuck on shut down displaying the Windows OS blue screen with a frozen curser  (not BSOD). Using Win 10, attempting a shut down/restart would bring it to a black screen with a frozen curser. 


When the computer is running, it works perfectly fine. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? TYIA.

Do you have the latest BIOS?

Whatever OS you are running, look in the event log.  Look to see if a device is failing at shutdown.
