    Dell dimension, using XP, worked fine until a few days ago. Now when I go
    to either start>turn off, or task manager >shut down, nothing happens. The
    only way I can kill it is to hold the off button for 20 seconds or so, then
    when I do boot up it always goes through a disk scan, but finds no problems.
    What now?

    Thanks
