View Full Version : shutting down - or not



15-01-2001, 04:49 PM
Recently upgraded the RAM in my compaq computer from 32MB to 64MB. Often now, when I try to shut down at the end of a day, it won't shut down. I have to switch off and then of course go through the scan disk when starting up next day.
Until I upgraded I had to shutdown often because the computer would become sluggish and noisy,there was rarely a problem then with the shutting down. That no longer happens and so the computer is on all day. Is that the reason it won't shutdown now? Also, some people say it should just be left on all the time - don't shut down at all. I run Windows 98.
Thankyou
