XP does not power off PC
jackog Feb-07-02 02:56 PM
When I had 98SE installed selecting shutdown would close the OS then power off the PC, I've now upgraded to XP Pro and selcting shutdown brings me to the "it is now safe....." page and does not switch PC off, any idea's.

Do you have an ATX power supply and motherboard, or is it an old computer? Larry

Its a Dell G1, PII 350, and yes there was a disabled device and enabling it has sorted the problem, hope it won't cause any others!, thanks for the help.
