Shutting Down Computer

I used to run Windows 98 and whenever I turned off my computer it would just go off by itself, now in Windows XP it gives me a screen which says "It's now safe to turn of your computer" and I have to shut it down manually. Can anyone help?

Hi,
Go to control panel.....system....hardware....device manager....
view.....click hidden devices........

You will see ATM with red x........enable.........

Your computer will now close down.

:cool:

it is to do with your power supply... stupid as it seems. I had the same problem and upgraded my case and supply... it all works fine now.

But why didn't it give problems with Windows ME, and it does give problems with Windows XP. What you are saying about upgrading your powersupply is about the last thing I would do, cuz I hardly use that pc anymore. On my new pc it doesn't give the problem.............if anyone has any software solutions please post them!

Thanx

I am having the same problem. I have enabled APM in the BIOS but I don't even see the chekcbox Option in the power management section to enable APM. Is there something missing here. :(

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
