Hi I have Windows XP and a Fujitsu Siemens computer.
My problem is this. When I go to shut down my computer it reboots itself. I have tried logging off and Turning it off via Start and Turn off Computer but instead off logging off it just reboots. It seems that the only way that I can turn it off is via the Task Manager.
If you have any ideas or suggestions I would be grateful.
Have you recently installed some new hardware like a card reader, wirless adapter. It does sound like a driver problem. Something must have changed, or a driver updated if the PC was working OK previously.
OK if you read this click here it shows that you definitely have a driver problem. Some hardware is hanging your PC on shutdown. If it is not external then it must be internal. Could be your USB (simple to fix, just go to Device Manager, delete them all and reboot - let Windows reinstall them). Copuld be your graphics card and for that you will have to check the Fujitsu website (or if you know the card manufacturer's website) or last thing I can think of is the CD/DVD drive which I presume is built in. Again remove this in Device Manager and re-boot.
One further point this link click here suggests that there are two other possible causes of your error message 1. Memory - so run a memory check or 2. Panda Antivirus - that doesn't happen to be one of the programmes you updated/uninstalled does it?
The link that I gave in my last post shows that the error can be caused by Panda 2007 and was cured by upgrading to Panda 2008. I haven't read every word on the page I linked to but it seems pretty conclusive.
