weird shutdown/startup

  exhumed 08:56 22 May 2004

shutting down after a gaming session can be a bit of a hit and miss affair,after Serious Sam on line it will hang at the windows is shutting down screen,holding down power button finishes it off.Other games, painkiller at the moment,not on line,if I leave the machine on after a session,it will shutdown normally,if not same as Serious SAM.But whether it shuts down normally or I power down, start up is the same, I get the windows didn't shutdown normally etc etc screen.
