Problem with new Computer (Possible OS Error)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I built my new computer yesterday (7/15/2011). Everything was perfect and flawless throughout the process, you can see my specs below. However, when I go to shut off my computer, it just stays active in the shut-off mode after the logging out and doesn't fully shut down. If anyone may know my problem please inform me of what it may be. If you all need any additional info. then please ask.

Thank-you for all the help you can provide.

It could be that Windows still has it set to 'Standby' or 'Sleep', instead of actually shutting down when you choose 'Shut Down'.

Go to Control Panel>Power Options and look on the left for "Choose what the power buttons do", and see what it says.

EDIT, my bad, that's just for the physical buttons on the case. I believe you have to 'change plan settings', and then advanced. It should be there somewhere.

EDIT 2, maybe not. Darn. I just woke up, so maybe I'm not fully aware yet...lol..

Ok, I went and checked that and it was shut to "shut down".

Disable deleting your pagefile at shutdown. If its already disabled its a windows service or a other service taking time to close. Go to msconfig. Services tab tick hide ms services then disable all. Go to startup tab tic disable reboot. Then test it again
