Something is not closing on exit. Try running in safe mode, then shut down. If it shuts down then something is loading and present in the taskbar which isnt closing down.

Shutting down at setup blue screen

even thoough it isn't the original cd that came with the the lapop it should still install.

make sure you clean the lens of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip of water and then gently clean it with a dry q-tip. This will ensure that the laser of the drive is nice and clean and free of dust or lint.

Then make sure there is no smudges of dirt or dust of on either sides of the cd so that way there can't be no write errors due to this.

Now see if you can install windows xp. If you still can't install windows xp then its because the hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

Windows XP will not shut down.

I don't know if you've tried this yet,but here it is just in case.

Click Start, and then click Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>In the Power Options Properties dialog box, on the Power Schemes tab, click the Power schemes drop-down list and select the power scheme that most closely matches how you use your computer.
adjust the System standby and System hibernates settings if you are not happy with the default selection. On the Advanced tab, you can adjust the default behavior of the power buttons on your computer. Click Apply>OK

My comp hang on "windows is now shutting down" screen

Try disconnecting the D-Link Wireless modem, maybe some networking log off is making trouble ...
If not, go into safe mode... And try removing some newly installed applications, they could be making a fuss...
Hard shutting down your PC doesn't create this kind of problem, so don't worry about that...
