This just started happening a few weeks ago. I will shut down my computer and my monitor stays on with the "shutting down" text on the screen. The computer fully shuts down. Any thoughts on this? I'm not sure where to start. I made sure all my cables were properly secure. Other than that, I've not a clue.

It is probably hanging up on a program that is taking a while to close. If you turn your computer on and then as soon as it boots into windows turn it off does it still do it? If so it might be one of your start up programs that is causing it.

Have you looked at your Event Viewer to see what is causing the problem? It's in the Control Panel under the Administrative Tools (if you're using WIndows 7).
I'll give it a shot when I get home. I'm not sure event viewer would show that my screen is hanging. If it was the computer hanging, I could see it showing in the event viewer.
