Windows 2000 pro on DELL 1300 SERVER
Posted on 2004-09-05
I have an old DELL 1300 / 450mhz server that decided to turn into a workstation. First I put win 98 on but the graphics drivers were not available so I changed to windows 2000 as all i need to be able to do is type letters on it...
Anyway i have win 2000 on nicely, all drivers in tact and all updates downloaded and installed..
When I click Shut Down, it closes down and displays, "it is now safe to turn off" when i hit the power button nothing happens
If i hold the power button down up to 4 seconds it goes off, then as I release the power button the server starts to load again, but if i hit the power button quickly again, thenthe server goes off and stays off
Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
I tried a download program called "smart shut down" that i used with a windows 98 shut down problem but that did not work in this case........
