Computer won't finish shutdown

By aqmike ·
When I shutdown or try to restart my computer it will get all the way through its shutdown procedure, but it will hang on a black screen with the blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner. This is a Windows 2000 workstation, 950 Mhz AMD, 512MB memory.
Any ideas on how to get it to finish shutdown?

Open the Control Panel,double-click the Power Management icon,enable APM in Power Management and reboot computer.Also you can enable ACPI to which has a problem in Bios settings.

Also try disabling Fast Shutdown to see if this clears up the problem

Good luck.... these are difficult to troubleshoot without knowing all the hardware in your system.

if you try all the solution above and didnt work try this ,

remove all the pci or isa card and check if its shutting down properly . If that is the case ,
put it back one by one and find put the culpit and the remove and reinstall its driver or try changing slot with otherpci card .
