Windows XP not shutting down.

I have a PowerSpec 9340. Recently I have had problems with Windows XP Prof. not shutting down, ie. it just hangs when it comes to the Windows Shutting Down phase, and I had to push the power button. It's now started working again, but the power button is flashing. My expectation is that this is a clue or indication of a problem, but I'm not sure. Can anyone explain the meaning of this flashing power button or why Windows wouldn't shut down? Thanks.

Hi im josh in cebu phils. Friend it is just a simple problem not to be worried of. Actually is not a hang up problem it will shutdown but it takes time.a delayed time or longer time it was set. All you have to do is to go to bios/cmos setup. restart your pc then press f2 if it ask to enter setup or mostly hit del to enter setup. once you have entered the setup you choose the power management then adjust the power off delayed to shorter mins. or you can choose direct off.just select what you want there.it will solve your proble and dont forget to save before you exit so that it will be applied to your pc. hope i helped you good luck!

Dll driving me nuts


Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.

NO SOUNDS...


Here is a link to the Windows Xp audio drivers to try for your motherboard/audio:

http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/258452/powerspec-v201-realtek-audio-sound-driver-5.10.0.5288-windows-xp-free-download.html

You need to click the link on this webpage near bottom to go to download. Let me know if this does the trick. It definitely sounds like an XP issue.

XP Pro desktop: I open web page and screen closes back to desktop


Could be either a virus or compatibility issue with an update. Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Click in the SHOW UPDATES at the top of the screen. Scroll down until you find Windows Internet Explorer 7. Look for the newest date of Updates to IE. Uninstall the last update by clicking on it and selecting remove. Then test IE. If this does not work, look for the last Windows update and do the same.
