98SE Shutdown

It depends on where it stops as to what you need to do.

Start by updating your motherboard / chipset and video card drivers.

If it stops at the screen it is safe to turn off your computer, you may need to enable power managment functions in BIOS settings.

There is a detailed shutdown trouble shooting guide at www.aumha.org

This is not an uncommon problem. Microsoft acknowleges its existance and has a paper on various trouble shooting tips to solve it.

If none of these fix it then there is a softwarepatch for 98SE that may do the trick.

Tell us how it turns out. Good luck.

Check the settings on your virus scan software. It may be getting stuck when it trys to check the floppy on shutdown.

Is your computer a stand-alone? If it is on a network, there are issues with Win98SE and mapped network drives. Microsoft has a patch available on the Windows Update webpage.
