Lock-ups at shutdown
I try to shut down my computer, the OS is windows XP Professional.
It goes to the normal shutdown screen. "Windows is shutting down" And then locks up... after a minute, all of my peripherals shut off (mouse and keyboard lights go off), and then it BSoDs me...
What kind of information do you guys need to help me out, ask and I will tell.
It's quite the nuisance not being able to shut down in an orderly fashion, and I do not know if it is having an adverse effect on my computer... For safety's sake, I would like to resolve this problem
Ask away to help me isolate and solve this problem,
PS. I have reformatted once, and that did NOT solve this problem.
I have also taken apart the PC and put it back together. MY BIOS and drivers are up to date. And... I have the latest windows updates.
