System Hanging

by TheChas In reply to System Hanging

Check for new drivers for hardware devices such as modems.

If you get the "It is okay to turn off your computer" screen, you need to enable APM in device manager.

Right click on my computer.
Select Properties.
Click on the hardware tab.
Click on the device manager button.
From the view menu, select view hidden devices.
Find APM on the list.
Right click on APM and select Enable.

Otherwise, try the XP shutdown trouble-shooting guide posted at
