W2k Restart Instead of Shutdown

By mmbc_voltron ·
I have a W2k station that won't shutdown.
You select shut down from the start menu and then select shutdown from the menu and it just wants to restart. I have tried the Ctrl+Alt+del and shutdown and it still resarts. I also tried as administrator to see if it was a local policy.

any clue I have see many issue's like this for win98 but not for W2k

Thanks

There's probably a BIOS upgrade for this computer for Windows2000. Check with your systemboard manufacturer/BIOS manufacturer for upgrades and how to flash the BIOS for windows2000 compatibility.

Not only the BIOS.
What service Pack do you have installed?
Install Service Pack 2 and install Service Pack Pre sp3. It's called W2KSP2SRP1.exe.
This should solve your problems.
Good Luck!

I recently had the same problem (except it was on an NT system). The fix that took care of my problem was to make a change to the following registry key - HK_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon, and change the registry key "PowerDownAfterShutdown" from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0 depending on what is already set. Exit the Registry & restart for change to take effect.
