Can ne1 tell me how to turn off my computer without having to switch off at the wall.
XP Pro only tells me "It's safe to turn off your computer"
Is there a setting on my M/B bios or XP that I should be looking at?
Any suggestions muchly appreciated.
the easiest way to turn off the comp is by going into control panel-perfomance and maintenance-power options and choose the advanced tab. from there just make sure the "when i press the power button on my computer is set to shut down, and all u have to do from now on is to hit that power button on the HD and it shuts down safe and sound
on my old machine windowsME shutdown the monitor ok IE no green lights as if i had powered it off, whilst on my new machine running windowsXP home the monitor exhinits a flashing light after machine shutsdown is that that specific enough
if you are talking about bc your pc wont shut all the way down.....when you ask it to then all you have to do is right click on my computer then go to the hardware tab from there go to device manager or driver sig. not sure im at work either way its the second choice from there go to view and choice "show hiddden files" from there find the one that says i belive it is legacy support from your choice of harware profiles enable it and reset should be good to go after that,
ps they had a post of this b4 i will edit if anything is wrong.
