Win98 wont shutdown

By stonewall_61 ·
I have a PC I just loaded Win98 on and everythng works fine except that when I shutdown the PC hangs up on the Win98 shutdown splash screen. It appears it has finished the actual shutdown process because when I reboot it doesnt go into the scandisk feature that alerts you of a an improper shutdown. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Welcome to Windows 98....

Here's MS Shutdown troubleshooting page:

Most like the APM setting is the problem.

go to Microsoft's web site. www.microsoft.com
in the search engine search for Q239887. This will take you to the trouble shooting guide and the patch to fix this issue.

In case the above don't work, check out the chipset motherboard and type of RAM. Intel posted a recall for cetain types of boards with SDRAM instead of RHAMBUS. The chipset is no good and it doesn't matter even if you patch 98 it will still hang. Goto www.intel.com for more info. Hope the above fixes work.!

and if none of the above help go to your antivirus mfgr and ask for help. Those programs often hang the shutdown and need to have some settings tweaked.
