I have just upgraded my pc with new mother****** board, hdd, ram etc. now when I shut down [Im running 98SE by the way]. I get the splash screen 'Windows 98 shutting down' then the wee led on the floppy drive comes on and there we stay. I have to just turn off then, no 'It is safe to shut off' splash just wee red led on.
Can yer help me

with the new motherboard it now should shut down by itself i think... not sure. most likely. u need the shut down patch from microsoft. email your address to me at porsche@vectorstar.net and i can email you the patch...

Is your windows updated as stated above? (in IE tools> windows update)

But I think it might be your power settings, either in windows of BIOS. Is your m/b and case ATX?

In BIOS enable Advanced power management options.

In windows right click on desktop, properties, at the bottom of screen saver options are power setting options have a look and check to see whether Advanced power management (ACPI or something) is enabled.
