    Can you be more specific on your problem. If the error you mean occurs at start-up saying "Windows did not shut down properly the last time" ignore it when nothing is wrong and just boot Windows. This message occurs when Windows wasn't shut down by means such as just disconnecting it's power or holding it's power button instead of going to Start > Shutdown.

    Or do you mean that the system just won't shutdown when you tell it to? I might have an answer for that one as well.

    Tell me more about the problem/answer the above stated situation.

I am using XP.. net modem working case if take a long time for System shutdown.. if put off modem immiditly shutdown. how to shutdown if working modem.

Windows Server tries to "gracefully" shutdown.
This implies that any "active" network-connections that use the modem will be signalled to "properly" close. This may take a while, waiting for the "other" end of the connection to respond.

However, if you have no active network-connection, then Windows does not need to "wait" for the "other" end of the connection to respond -- it can immediately close the "severed" connection.

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.

Acer laptop aspire 4710z config my notebook have problem

There could be an issue with the user accounts logins. This could be corruption in the OS when you installed it or a clashing driver . I would recommend you reinstall the Operating System with the Disks and before you start installing the drivers try to shut down and see if it shuts down properly . If it does then you know the Operating system and hardware is all fine and can continue installing one driver at a time and shutdown and restarting, continue doing this until you see which driver is causing a confict with your system. I have had a problem similar to this but it was some windows updates pack that I had done one time and had to reinstall windows too and do one by one. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.

Installing new OS

Every laptop is accompanied by a preinstalled vesion of Windows, on the same hard disk in a hidden space. So if you get a prompt to restore your laptop to a previous state at the beginning of system startup, press the relevant key. If windows xp is your choice. and want to install it you may need follow the installation instruction from your system manufacturer. When the system starts up some information is displayed on the screen, like this: " Press F1 to enter setup" If you press the relevant key and enter the BIOS setup you can find the CPU temperature settings, shutdown temperature etc... This may not be you case. So I suggest you to get support from a qulified technician. Your system hardware should have some problem. (motherboard or hard disk is more prone to error) you can also try to find information from your system vendor's manuals and support website. All the best
