Vista wont shut down properly
I am running Vista Ultimate SP1 and when I do a shutdown I get the message
that the PC (stand alone) is shutting down. The screen eventually goes
blank and reoports no video available BUT my PC is still on.

How do I fix this?

Thanks

Trevor

Re: Vista wont shut down properly

I've had this problem on my old P4 machine. In my case it was a hardware
soundcard that was the culprit. I didn't investigate the problem in
detail but motherboards are set to "wake on" certain hardware. I suspect
my motherboard had a setting that said "wake up when sound card or PCI
card is plugged in." I eventually removed the card and used my onboard
sound. For you guys it might be more complicated, but I hope this will
give you some leads on how to solve this issue on your own.
Unfortunately I'm not a pro with computers so I'm just passing on what
limited knowledge I have.
