If you have installed Windows 7 on your machine, chances are that you are already experiencing this nasty bug. As a matter of fact, every now and then, after forcing Windows 7 to shut down you won’t be able to start it again. (For example, after you hold down the power button for 4 seconds).
This issue happens if:
- The system is configured to enter hibernation or to enter hybrid sleep mode when the power button is pressed.
- The language version of the operating system that you are running is a double-byte character set (DBCS) language. For example, you are running a Chinese, Korean, or Japanese version of Windows 7 on the computer.
- Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is disabled either in the BIOS or in the operating system.
Recently, Microsoft has addressed a proper hotfix for Windows 7 users. o resolve this problem, start the computer by using a Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) disc for Windows 7. Then, start the computer in normal mode. Dowload the fix here.
