Windows 98 shuts down ok but the computer will not switch itself off-please help.
Also DVD rom drive shows up in My Computer and Device Manager but it will not read any disks.

AS it ever switched of? If it's a AT system it will not switch of with the Operating System. It should say, You Can Now Turn off Your Computer

Just in case you have not checked this:
It may well be that you need to enable auto shut down Go into control panel - Admin tools - computer management and click device manager - select view and then select view hidden devices lokk for APM power open it up and then double click the apm device revealed - enable it for use and your problem may be cured.
