RE: Windows XP SP3 shutdown problem
Ignore this idiotic request for help. Turns out that it was of those ID 10 T
problems. I had hooked up 2 CD-ROM drives and had the 40-pin bus cable
hooked up backwards on one of them. Machine ran, but would not shut down.
XP SP3 installation had nothing to do with it except hooked up drives around
that time. Sorry.
