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!

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


Ok,
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...
Tell me if you have solved anything
