Just remove any newly installed things. If you haven't installed nothing, check for viruses. After all, a bios reset could help you, too (or not).. Anyway, try to figure out what really the problem is. | Report abuse tjledvina May 5, 2010 12:47:01 PM Best answer selected by tjledvina. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Computer will not shut down or reboot> Related ressources: ForumCompaq 3000 shut down and reboot issues ForumComputer reboots when shut down - help please.
