Aspire 5200 / can't power down/reboots

By dragon ·
Acer support couldn't help...
Aspire 5200 atx. Fresh Win98 install. Was running 95 and shut down correctly, but after 98 install it a)goes to "Now Safe.." if "disable fast shutdown checked, or b)restarts if unchecked. If unplugged (only recourse) then plugged back in, it starts without switching. Reinstalling 95 didn't work, nor did the Microsoft supplement.

Aspire 5200 / can't power down/reboots

Had same problem with my laptop two days ago - here's what fixed it for me. Going to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Shutdown key then changing the fast reboot value to 0 in regedit. Checking the box is supposed to do the same thing, but it didn't seem to work for me.
