Not long ago I installed Windows XP Pro onto a RAID 0 over three HDD's.
When I choose to shutdown the computer, the computer goes through all its
stages like it normally would, saving settings etc.. etc..
The monitor will then turn off (well have no infomation being fed to it)
like normal, as if the computer was in fact off.
Now windows seems to not be running anymore as its been shut down. Yet
somehow the computer remains on, fans spinning, lights on etc.. I then have
to turn this off with the power button to acturally turn the computer off.
So why does the computer shut down windows yet stay on.
It stops the graphics card sending data to the monitor, so it is like the
computer is infact off.
It seems that the off command isn't quite being sent to the computer.
Any Ideas? I was hoping to try a load before I reinstalled windows again,
and in fact, would this issue end when I reinstalled windows or would I be in
the same place again, just with no programs?
Thanks for the help. D
