Hey

I have a dell computer, 3 years old or so.
I had windows 98 installed and everytime I shutdown windows, it turned off the box.
Few weeks ago I installed windows 2000, and since then when I shutdown windows it wont turn off the computer, but it stays at the screen of "now it's safe to turn off your computer"
how do I fix this?
