Does anyone know how to shutdown Windows XP Home without any visual display, apart from just switching off the power!

Turn it off.

Press the Windows key, then press U, then press U again.

You should be able to do it by pressing the windows button on your keyboard and pressing the up arrow, then enter, then press enter again.

Mr Mistoffelees one is better.

The FE showed the best method. Press the "off" switch and hold it down for a few seconds.

Thanks guys I tried all methods but only FE's worked. I won't know for sure till I fix the graphics card, if anything has been corrupted.
