Default 98 shutdown

Why is is that when I shut down one of my win 98's it goes straight down and the other goes to a black screen that says "ok to shutdown now" ?
I would like for both to shutdown without the black screen .

Thanks for any help:bald:

Under your control panel there should be a power option. Inside that make sure that ACPI is turned ON

No acpi setting to change so maybe it is as microbell says

Some motherboards do not support software shutdown..hence you must use the power switch to switch off the computer.
