If your running a 32-bit version of Windows 7 and force shut down, it does not start again. When you try to restart the computer, the startup process stops at a black screen. Microsoft informed “This problem occurs if following conditions’re true: Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is disabled either in the BIOS or in the operating system. The system’s 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 e.g., you’re running a Chinese, Korean, or Japanese version of Windows 7 on the computer.” To resolve “start computer by using a Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) disc for Windows 7. Then, start the computer in normal mode. If you don’t have a Windows PE disc, start computer by using a Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008 installation DVD, and then start the computer in normal mode. To prevent this problem from reoccurring, apply this hotfix.”
