    I have a notebook computer with Win 98SE installed. The machine has froze
    up with the message "Windows is shutting down". No matter how many times I
    restart the machine it still comes up to this shutdown screen. I suspect
    that when I hit the power button I am putting it into standby mode. How do
    I get the machine to cold boot? I have even tried a floppy startup disk and
    nothing seems to get rid of the shutdown screen. Please help if you can as
    my wife has her doll collection data on this machine and I am getting glared
    at!!

    I solved the problem by disconnecting the battery from the computer. I will
    make some changes based on the help provided.
