Win.XP 2600 Shut Down


Recommended Posts

gypise

I am using 2600 on my pc ( Sound Blaster Live 5.1 ATI 128 pro AMD Ath.1 gig 384 ram ) and the thing is that everytime I try to shut down...it eithers gives me a BSOD or it clears the desktop of everything and then stops. From what I have read in other forums it seems as if everyone using 2600( what MS calls the best ever,makes me wonder best what ? Best bugs?) is having the same problems . Well anyway is there anything that i can do to resolve this shut down problem besides using the power button?

Thanks for the help and your time.....Lone Live America May Old Glory Fly High Forever!!!

I have never had a shut down problem with XP. Although I did have many such problems including BSODs with Windows 2000 when shutting down. In fact I still have dual boot with 2K and if I try to shut it down it just hangs with a blank desktop. No idea why or how to fix it though, sorry!

I don't really know, but i used to have problems shutting down in windows me, all the time. maybe your soundcard/graphics card drivers are not suitable for windows xp. try booting to safe mode (i am thinking you can restart...) and then shutting down from there.

I spoke to soon in that post last night! Shortly after I said XP never crashes at shutdown it did just that and crashed on shutdown.

Ah well, shutdown crashes I can live with, it is random ones I hate and I haven't had any so far. Uh-oh, I shouldn't say that...
