XP home stalling on close

  Billp64 10:34 12 Jun 2006

With computer on most of the day and then shut down at night get closing screen and keyboard off but mouse and screen still on. Re-start and shut down again then ok.
Only thing different is USB 4port hub and new mouse and modem connectd to it.
Machine works ok with no apparent problems.
Any ideas pleased appreciated thank you.

Try instsalling the latest drivers.

Try removing the mouse/modem and the hub in order and see if any solve the problem.

Is it a powered hub? If not, you may be overloading the power supply. The only time I've had shutdown problems it's been followed shortly by PSU failure.

Computer is up to date with drivers and I have now removed the hub and plugged them into the two front USB ports on machine. Will give it a try now but I have replaced the PSU once as the old one failed. There is not that much into the machine only mouse, two printers only one USB and
Broadband Modem.

Thanks for your help will see how it goes for a while.
