This is the site for the new symevnt.dll
download and run SEVINST.EXE from the following link

If it worked in 98 it should work in 2k, at least when you 'Enable Advanced Power Management Support' in Power Options, tab APM (control panel)

I allready tried this:

Here are my energy options:

Turn off Monitor: never
Turn off Harddisk: nerver

Enable Advanced Power Management (checked)

It doesn't works.... And I don't know why...

Have you got other ideas?

which option is that in award bios?

gmessermanCommented:
I don't remember exectly, but I belive it should appear in Power Managment Section in BIOS. Look for "ACPI" something.

sorry i checked the whole bios for such a function, but i can't find it....

i think it must be anabled because it worked under win98

mdffCommented:
if your bios supports your power on button to be a suspend/resume switch or an power on/off button, set it to suspend/resume and test if your system is shutting down.

if this doesnt work, search for the following value in your registry and set it to zero if set to 1:

PowerDownAfterShutdown

if this also doesn't work, you can try this:

set the value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Shutdown\FastReboot
to zero if set to 1.

if this also doesn't work, then try to get a new bios version for your mainboard.

Right click on the desktop choose properties. Goto the screensaver tab, click the power button>click the APM tab and place a check in the enable advanced power management support.


Just tried it! No problem mine now shuts off.

What brand of Motherboard? What Bios number?

In device manager is there anything under other devices?

Try reinstalling w2k.
Shortly after reebot press f5 and select an ACPI-hal.
Reinstalling will take quite a time, but whith my b2bds it worked this way.

i really have to reinstall the whole win2k... where exactly do u press f5?
0
 
yxyxyxCommented:
within your w2k start setup.exe from the cd and choose update installation.
after the reboot press F5 when the setup tells you "searching for hardware", shortly before "press F6 for ...".
It's really at the beginning after the reboot, if you miss it, switch of and start again...

Before reinstalling , u might want to try this out.

The computer seems to be restarting due to a bugcheck.There is a known issue with shutdown in Win2k and some third party Antivirus/remote control e.t.c software.

To find out if this is the reason :-

Try to uncheck AUTOMATIC REBOOT in the system properties->advanced->startup and recovery
Please see if u get the error message stop 0x0000009f :driver_power_state_failure in the Blue Screen Of Death upon shutdown.
If u do post it here and i'll give the solution (taken from microsoft kb,it worked for me)

Ok here goes nothing
First check if u ar using some of the NORTON range of products from SYMANTEC(NAV , NU , Crash guard e.t.c)(this was my problem).If u r then go to this link and update a critical dll file
copy and paste this address on to the address bar

If not then , the solution is a bit more tough

u have to try to uninstall (preferrably one by one) any antivirus software ,system tools or hardware(drivers) that were not designed for Win2k in particular

There is also the issue with some ADAPTEC software .So try unistalling them if u do have it.

if all else fails , here is a direct link to the Microsoft kb article.Cut and paste the address on to the address bar

should that work for a shutdown (with poweroff) ?

0
 
spectreRVCommented:
That depends on whether or not ur computer is completely ACPI compatible with Win2k and all the power options are set correctly in BIOS and in WIN2K as discussed above (previous comments)

If not u should atleast get the shutdown screen indicating that Win2k has properly shutdown

It did power off for me after shutdown indicating that THIS issue is completely resolved by the updated dll
