PC Doesn't Restart/Shut Down in Vista!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When I go to my start menu in Vista Ultimate 32bit, and try to either restart or shut down my computer, it begins to close windows, then the monitor turns off meaning the video card power was shut off, but the computer is still on. The lights are on, the fans are on, and the processor noise is there meaning the CPU is still on. Anyone know what is going on? I have tried to restart/shut down many times and the same problem keeps happening.

I have to literally manually power off my computer by shutting off the power.

Also, another problem I have, I cannot access control panel through the start menu. The screen comes up for about .5 secs and closes. It basically just flashes the window and auto closes

Any help would be nice, thank you in advance.

Maybe your rig is too much machine for Vista to handle.

Is this an Upgrade or a fresh install of Vista?
How old is the install?
