Help: Windows 2000 Pro fast shutdown!
Posted on 2003-03-26
hi all, i appreciate if i can get any feedback on this issue, tnx in advance.
I've installed windows 2000 pro. and the machine runs fine, but the biggest and only problem i have is that windows shuts down extremely fast! in less than 2 secs.! that happens like 80% if not more! and every time windows starts it have to scandisk, and i had to format my pc 3 times, and reinstall win coz it gave me some kind of an error about not finding congiuration file, or even my profile; even sometimes it logs me in a temp profile. It doesnt seem as windows save my data when it shuts down that quick, and often i have re-install what ever i had on it. One thing i was looking closely at is the VIA Bus Master PCI IDETOOL, that i have installed; i think it could be that but not sure, can u plz help? by the way, sp3 for windows is installed.
here are my pc's specifications:
mb: DFI AD75 via KT333
ram: 256 133mhz
cpu: amd xp 1800+
hd: maxtor 9 series, 80 gb, ata 133
