A laptop will not shut down.
Clicking start/ turn off computer/ turn off reverts to the desk top.
The on switch manual has no effect.
Removing the power supply has no effect.
Any suggestions please,
Windows XP SP3

Removing the batterry pack as well as the power cable shuts it down, but I meant what could be the root cause?
