I have a Windows 2000 professional computer. I first used a 20GB hard drive. There was a problem. The computer, when i clicked Shut Down, restarted insteading of shutting down. I go to start, shutdown, then choose shutdown from the list. Soon, i returned the 20GB hard drive and reinstalled teh OS on a new 80GB hard drive. I still have the same problem. The computer wont shut down. Instead, it restarts. My friend used teh same boot disks and Win2K OS CD that i used and his computer is fine. What could be wrong?? Please help.

I had this problem way back when I upgraded my mobo and installed Norton AV 2002 - worst move I made, it immediatly slowed the system to a crawl and would run a scan at shutdown thus not allowing fast shutdowns! I got rid of it and installed Trend Micro and seen a real difference in performance and also the fact that when choosing "Shutdown", it actually did it.

Good luck.

If you have an old vid card,it will do this.The hibernation will not work either because of the vid card. You can change the vid card to a newer one. Also if you have done an upgrade ,you may have the reset and power wires crossed on your mobo pins.
