    My friends computer does not turn off when shutting down. Windows shuts
    down fine but the computer sounds like it is still running. So he has to
    hold the power button for 3 seconds for it to turn off. Also, when you
    want to turn on the computer it does not boot up when you press the power
    button (even though you hear the power go on, there is nothing on the
    screen). Then when you press the reset button it boots up fine. Also
    recently the clock on occasion is reset to 12:00. Also, certain web
    sites will not load properly (freezes up). windows 2000 pro. athalon
    1Ghz, 40gig hd. You would think it is a power supply problem, but why
    would the clock go wrong at the same time. It started about the same
    time. The clock has been ok the last couple of days. Could it be
    anything other then a power supply problem when having these symptoms?

    Change the CMOS battery, and ensure that advanced
    power management is installed and activated correctly.
