    Weirdest thing. Did a nice clean install of WinXP on a new harddrive. Only
    problem is... when I shutdown the PC, it goes through the "shutting down
    Windows" routine, gets out to a black screen, right when you'd think the
    power would shut off like it used to the PC reboots. Any ideas what would
    cause this?

    As soon as it gets to my BIOS password window I just hit the power switch
    and it kills it, but a hassle as I can't just shutdown and walk away.

    Thanks in advance,

    jonesie
