Windows XP Shutdown Problems
Last updated: 12/2/02
Q. I've upgraded
to XP Pro and selecting Shutdown brings me to the "It is now safe....." page
and does not switch my PC off; any idea's?
A. Shadi (post in the Dux Operating
Systems Forum): Try this...go to the Device Manager and choose View. Then
select Show Hidden Devices in System Devices. I think
there will be a disabled device...just enable it and try to shutdown your
PC....I think it will work because the same problem happened with me.
