    Win2k No Shutdown


    I cant seem to sutdown, reboot, logoff in win2k. When a program or windows trys to restart nothing happens. Is there a way other that reformatting i can fix this?

    I had tons o' fun figuring what was stopping my Win2k from shuttingdown/restarting.

    I thought it was the sound card, but it ended up being my HP CDRW.......

    You have to make sure you have all the latest drivers for your stuff or it hangs religiously.....

    I ended up reformatting and putting things on 1 by 1 until I found it was the CDRW (Huh...and the damn thing said Win2k ready )

    I guess you can try replace/upgrade as much as you can and see if its 1 thing specifically.
