Hi My XPS M1530 has on/off issues in trying to shut down via the power button or assigning sleep mode or hibernation mode, It begins to shut down, then reboots itself. Sometimes the only way to shut down is to hold down the power button.
If anyone could help with this issue I'd appreciate it.

I doubt the nic driver is to blame but might as well visit the Dell site, enter your service tag and be sure you have all of the needed and recommended files for this device on your machine. Next, I'd ensure my power settings are the way I want and then I'd run a check with A/V and Superantispyware in safe mode. BTW, is there anything interesting in the E/V?
Try running chkdsk /r and then restart the computer. to do that, click on START, RUN, in the open field, type 'cmd' and press <enter>. A dos window will open. At the blinking cursor, type 'chkdsk /r' and press <enter>. You will get a message that the drive can't be locked and do you want to run it the next time Windows starts. Type 'y' and press <enter>. Now shutdown the computerand restart it. Chkdsk will run and it may take some time. Depending on your installation, you will see a blue screen that will show the progress. Sometimes the screen will stay black and the hard drive light will flash. That's ok. Let it run until Windows loads. Wait until it is completely loaded and then try shutting it down normally.
