Windows shutdown problem

  placeone 14:18 07 May 2003

Hi,i currently run a computer using an AT power supply,after the computer shuts down i then have to manually switch the power off.The problem is i do not recieve the final notification screen saying 'IT IS NOW SAFE TO TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER'.Although this is not a problem for me,it is for the rest of the family that use it,because they sometimes switch the power off before shut down is complete,causing file corruption.Does anyone know how to return this screen to the computer.Incidently,i have formatted the computer several times but this does not solve the problem.

I posted in your original thread placeone.

What is your operating system? This may help somebody solve the problem for you.

I don't know if you've done this or not

Have you checked that the shutdown screen file
is on you pc. The file is called Logos.sys.

I am sure someone out here will be able to help you more on this.

You'd better tick off the other thread, titled Brian, as it's getting more attention than this one from all the Brians!

There is a Windows 98 Shutdown fix 400KB plus zip file available from the Microsoft website:

Just read the thread again - if I remember rightly if you have an AT power supply then the system will have to be switched off manually.

I only gained this advantage after upgrading to an ATX case and power supply along with a mobo that supported the facility.

is a problem that I've had in the past and reading through the microsoft site on the subject I found that in MY case it was Norton anti virus software!
If I closed down Norton first I could then shutdown the pc normally.
At that time though I had Win ME.

This is a very useful site for shutdown problems click here

I don't think that it addresses your specific problem but well worth a read.
