not shutting down

My windows 2000 pro is not properly shutting down and it's been a long time. So I don't recall what I was doing when I had this problem.

When I shut down, it gets out of desktop with black blank screen. But power is there. So I have to force to power down every time I want to shut down. What cound be the problem?

866 P III with 256 sdram.
Tyan s1854 Trinity 400
Two 40 gig hard disks

Thank you in advance.

Hi, It seems like a problem in The Power Options.

Look. Goto This Site:

Check to see if you are able to shut down in safe mode:
Reboot and press F8 key after memory run and before windows splash screen.
If you are able to shut down properly in safe mode then post last 20 lines of ntbtlog.txt file here.

In Safe mode, it shut down correctly.
I want to give you more than 20 lines of my ntbtlog.txt.
For reference, my machine runs excellent except this shut-down problem.

did you enable it from the APM applet in the control panel?
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q242/4/14.ASP
also
http://registry.winguides.com/display.php/251/
also remove any extra protocols from your dialup adapter like ipx/spx, and netbeui and see if that helps

WD, it sounds like you have a driver issue, which might include a driver signing problem (Windows trying to authenticate a driver as compatible as well current from the manufacturer).

Try this URL and work through it carefully to try and locate the driver issue that?s causing this.

I'm raising my points.

Stevenlewis, I don't have APM applet in my power option although I enabled it from my motherboard bios. The registry change doesn't work.

dennis, "I will try to do what you suggested" although I wasn't gonna do that because it would be a time consumming process.

Any other suggestions while I try to locate the problomatic driver? Any other ways to overide the driver causing the problem?

i think problem it by mainboard and Bios .
if you use new mainboard with bios support ACPI as mainboard chipset intel 815 then it shutdown normal .
but some old mainboard and Bios i cannot shutdown normal .

It was adaptec Direct CD (the cd rw utility). As soon as I uninstalled it, I was able to shut down totally. I felt so good when I heard the shut-down sound clearly. To verify it is Direct CD that prevented my shut-down, I installed Direct CD again and I had shut-down problem again. Oh, Deer. Anyway, I uninstalled it for good. :)
