Power Off

#1
Ok I just installed XP pro, and when I go to turn my comp off, I get a black screen saying its safe to turn my computer off. I dont want that ! lol

I have ATX and it used to turn off just fine in 98. My XP doesnt have probs. This is one i just built.. Thx

Make sure you have ACPI turned on in your bios and your bios up-to-date. Unfortunately this is a feature that is setup during installation and may require a new installation to get it recognized correctly. You can do a search for 'apm' or 'advanced power management' here and see what comes up, but i'm not sure if that fix is what you need.

Go into power managment in control panel. look for enable advanced power managment tab and tick it.

this does the trick..
