I have Win-ME.

for he past weeks, It wont shut down.
When I am telling it to shut-down, the screen gets black.
After physically shutting it down with the power button,
It does "scan disk" operations, you check C drive, when it restarts.

Is it relate to windows configuration or hardware ?
how can I prevent it ?


Thx,
Yair

1) Disable all power down options in the BIOS.

2) Check the power down options in the control panel.

3) Get the newest BIOS ipdate.

4) Get the newest drivers for all your hardware !

5) disable all un needed stuff in the msconfig - startup Tab.

This should solve your problem in ost cases.

I hope this helps !

Most pentium and above BIOS's are upgradable thru a bootable diskette with a newer BIOS image that is flashed into the BIOS chip.
You need to go to your motherboards manufacturer site and llok for BIOS updates etc.
