I wonder if anyone can help me. 2 days ago my PC started acting very strange ( around the same time I updated the latest graphic card drivers from Nvidia.) or at least I think so. ( 41.09 )
Basically when I shutdown the PC to turn it off it shutsdown ok then 7-10 seconds later it reboots.
I am using the Windows Shutdown rather than reboot option but it still basically re-boots.
While I am using the PC it does not shutdown its all fine, ( which is good news )I can use the Pc all day and it will not crash / shutdown on me. Just when I got to turn it off I cant !! ( Without removing the plug that is )
I have tried removing the old drivers and then re-installing the latest nvidia driver again but it still happens. I have also tried reinstalling the old Ledtek Winfast driver and still the PC refuses to Shutdown properly.
I have searched on Google and on the Microsoft website but have not found any solutions that solve my problem.
I am able to boot into SAFE mode ok , so that would suggest its not a cable touching the case or anything like that, also as stated above I can use my PC fine all day, I just cant turn the damm thing off.
I have looked in DEVICE MAMAGER and all would seem to be fine there, ie all drivers seem to be working fine. So to the best of my knowledge no conflicting drivers ( although I think this is what could be causing the problem just cant find any )
I have checked for a damaged exit sound file and they all seem to be fine.
All Hardware seems to working fine..ie no damage
I have tried System Restore, thats no good, I have also tried replacing my registry files from a floppy disc, that didnt seem to work either.
The PC is running Windows ME, 1GZ , 512 Ram ( using Cacheman ) grapics card is Winfast Gforce 2 MX 400 64 mg Ram
One thing I have noticed however is that after switiching the PC off after shutdown ( ie pulling the plug before 7 seconds have passed and it reboots ) The PC will not altermatically reboot afer I plug it back in, I have to physically press the start / stop button to boot up the PC ( Which I believe is a good sign ! )....I am stumped !..any comments would be much appreciated.
Thanks for any help
