when i shut XP down i get a black screen with a microsoft logo that says "it is now safe to turn pc off"...but i have to use the tower button. Not a major headache, but bugs me why i have 2 do it.

I have checked my BIOS..up to date...i installed XP over 9x..any help would be greatly appreciated ...

See if this'll help

About two thirds of the way down the page you'll come to "PowerDown issues". The suggestions here solved the problem on my PC.
