a few moths back i did a clean install of win xp pro and all seemed to go well.i then started to install my hardware and sofware and everything was fine untill i came to power down the pc.it gets to the stage where it says windows is shuting down and after turning off the sound card it just hangs.i know it started after installing something as i did shut down before i installed the drivers for my hardware and my software.there are no question marks in device manager and ive removed the acpi and done a restart and it just puts it back and says there are no problems.any help would be good as im pulling my hair out and i dont have alot to start with...........mike
