Default 'error' on Win shutdown.

Hey all, I've got a rather annoying problem currently that causes Windows to emit an error beep (not from the BIOS) on Shutdown. Is there a way for me to check what the **** that error is, as I can't look at the message the PC would be giving me as Windows is already at the 'Shutting down' stage.

Anyway for me to check it? Like from a log or something.

- Cheers, Diabetic

Check your event log.

Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Event Viewer

It'll probably be under the System Log, and have an Error message.
