Unplug the computer and open the case. Take a picture of the cards in the slots, and then remove all of them except the videocard (the cable that connects to your screen) if you have one that isnt built into the motherboard (be sure to label the connectors going to the cards if you're unsure of what they are) and then power the computer back up.

If it works fine one of the cards is bad. (If it dosent, skip down 1 paragraph) Turn the computer back off and unplug it, plug 1 card in and turn it back on. If it works, shut down and do the same for the next card. Keep going until you find the card that is killing it.

If it still dosent work with the cards out, it could be the power supply or something on the motherboard. Unplug the PC again and turn it on without plugging it in, this will drain the caps on the board. Holding the computer case with one hand (or use a ground strap) remove the memory from the sockets. Plug the computer back in and turn it on again (dont reach inside, fans and wires that are powered up). If it still does the same thing, it's the motherboard/cpu, if it beeps at you, it's the power supply.

My dad's Dell Dimension 2350 windows XP home edition won't power off when you try to shut it down .


There is one solution that you can do, you can hold the power button for about 10 seconds and this will shut your computer down, this is known as a hard shut down. My question would be how often does this happen? If it happens at every shutdown I would recommend scanning your computer for viruses and malware. If that doesn't fix the problem I would recommend backing up your data and restore your operating system.
