Blinking Cursor on Shut Down

Post by MDJackso » Fri, 28 May 2004 08:26:07


Greetings,

Acer TravelMate 603TER with 256 RAM running W2K SP4
displays a blinking cursor on a black srceen on every shut
down. In order to shut down laptop, I must hold the power
key until it powers down.

On a recent Windows Update the laptop did restart on it's
own without being phyiscally powered down. Anyone ever
heard of this anomaly?

Thanks in advance,
Monica

I had a similar problem with my PC and ended up having to
reinstall Windows...if all else fails and troubleshooter
doesn't help maybe try that.

Bob,

Based on your link, I was able to resolve my issue by
using the referenced link - 285461 Windows 2000 Does Not
Shut Down Correctly with Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4.0 or
Earlier Installed - in the document. I ended up upgraging
to Easy CD Creator v4.05 and DirectCD v3.05.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
Monica
