Default Computer will not shut-down!! we go...I have a Dell XPS 400...2.8gig...2gigs ram...pentium media center XP...--Problem-- When i go in the start menu and click turn off computer, then click Turn off (or Restart), nothing happens. If i hold the power button on the tower (case) it will turn just will not turn off using the start menu....NOW, i have done a system restore and it has seemed to have fixed the problem as of right questions, has anyone had this happen?? and, if this happens again, how can i fix it?? Could this be virus related?? Thanks for your help!!

Default Re: Computer will not shut-down!!

I've had this happen with my XP Pro SP2. I was running a RAM optimizer and as soon as that was shut off, the Windows restart and turn off functions worked perfectly....
If you're not running a RAM utility, then I don't know what to tell you....
