I installed Windows Server 2003 R2 enterprise on my new laptop (my
development machine) and everything works great except that it hangs on
It runs the "Windows is shutting down" dialogue complete and then it hangs on
the grey screen. The mouse pointer i still there and movable though. The power management is still working as well, cause my setting to turn of the monitor still works. The
only thing to do is the four second power button shutdown.
This also affects hibernation and stand by.
I have seen some posts about this, but no solutions.
Is there some way to to perform a logged shutdown perhaps? That might show
something. I have tried to set the Event Log to verbose mode, but the last thing I see is that the Event Log was shut down - no help from that then.
There are way to many drivers to just try and disable them one by one to figure out which one is causing this - if it's caused by that. But if that is the last resort, how do I prevent the Plug and Play service to install all the drivers alll over again on reboot? I disabled the Plug and Play service, but then I couldn't see anything in the device manager.
Thankful for your help!
