Win98 Shutdown Problem

by zuikaku In reply to Win98 Shutdown Problem

Advanced Power Management is often the cause of this problem. I would make sure that APM is disabled in the BIOS first, then I would disable APM in Windows if the problem continued.

To disable APM in the BIOS, you must get into the BIOS setup screen. The way to get to this screen varies from system to system, but generally you'll see something like "Press DEL to enter setup" on the screen when you start your system, so you would press the DEL key at that time to get into setup mode. Once in the setup screen, look for an option called "power management" or something similar, then set that option to "Disable".

In Windows, you can disable APM by going to "System" in the Control Panel. Expand the "System Devices" branch on the "Device Manager" tab. Click on the properties for "Advanced Power Management support". On the "General" tab, check the "Disable in this hardware profile" box to disable APM.

I have seen network cards cause this fault. Remove your network card and see if the problem persists.

Hi, this is a known problem for 98, especially SE (but first addition as well though not as frequent). Microsoft has a patch on its website for 98 (not SE) as well as a troubleshooting article in its knowledge base (search under 98 |shutdown problem). You can try the 98 patch- Hope this helps (www.microsoft.com)

Sometime antivirus software also can cause this problem. May be try to uninstall the anti virus software and see the problem still exist.

Go to START/RUN and run msconfig.exe; in the GENERAL tab under ADVANCED, unclick fast shutdown. It may be all you need to do.
