Hello all...im on my uncles computer trying to fix it...the problem is that when i shut down it says 'Your computer is ok to shut down' ....how do i make it so it automatically shuts down?

ACPI and Apm features are installed at setup. You need to enable the acpi function of the motherboard in the bios... I'm not sure if XP will pick it up and fix itself or not... it may require a re-installation.

your motherboard and case needs to support ATX powersupply and you may have set some jumper settings on the board, check out your manual for details

Would i have to update the motherboard drivers at all? or manually go into the motherboard and switch some settings?

you need to look in your manual, or go to the web site if you don't have one. If you know the model and make of the board post it here.
If its only a few years old then it almost certianly will.

do what Lonman says also, check the stuffs enbaled in bios

None of the above. Those are the ones that connect up with the case. You'll need to go into your bios and see if ACPI is enabled. Look in your manual again and see if your board it acpi compliant.
