cant click on shutdown menu?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So awhile back, I had to reinstall windows due to some driver being missing. After install of Windows XP Pro SP2, I'm having difficulty, shutting down. Everytime I hit the shut down button on start menu, my computer hangs with just the hourglass cursor going. So, the only way to turn off my computer is going to task manager and manually shutdown from there. But I would like to know why my shut down menu does not work, and how to fix it.


Thanks in advance!

The shutdown action is part of the DPMI (desktop power management interface) on your motherboard. If your MoBo drivers aren't loaded properly, Windows may have a hard time understanding HOW to shutdown.
