ive just played crysis then after shutting game down windows did an update and wanted to do a restart but the pc would not shutdown, i press start then restart but nothing happens, this as happend twice now, it did the same lastweek. ive done virus scans but nothing there.
i have resently noticed that my memory as gone down from 3.5gb to 3.2gb. it should be at 4gb but im on xp, i am goin to update to win 7 soon.
i have allso resently installed x fi xtreme gamer allso my system is overclocked but ive never had this problem before
could this be because win xp cant do 4gb of ram and causing it problems or could it be that installing the x fi extreme gamer, this never happend before i installed it and my ram dropped after installing it, thanks for all your help

my system
1000corsair psu
windows xp
gigabyte p55 ud5 mobo
core i5 750 overclocked to 4ghz
corsair xms3 4gb 1600mhz ddr3

go to start, then run, then type cmd, and press enter:

once at the command prompt, type in "shutdown /r" and try to force a restart this time, and see if you still have problems.
