Windows ME

by pschuvie In reply to Windows ME

There have been three primary reasons identified, any one of which will produce this action.

Each of these conditions are cover in the Microsoft Knowledge Base support.microsoft.com

Problem with Advanced Power Management settings of computer bios - KB article Q290668

IDE device cache update fix required
Fix via Windows Update and described in KB Q273017

SCSI miniports problem - Fix either from
Microsoft or sometimes by update to BIOS
Described in KB Q290831

Please review each of these articles and the steps needed to correct the situation.

I would start with the IDE fix then move to the APM and finally the SCSI miniports.

Hope this helps

Try the answer in Tech's most recent article on 2K shutdown problems. I had a customers machine that did what you describe each time you shut down. By telling Windows 2000 to "wait" a little longer to force shutdown, I was able to eliminate this problem. Hope this helps!
