I'm hoping someone can help here.
On 20-09, Mumia W wrote that he couldn't turn off his pc,blank screen,
still runs, except by pushing the off button.
I have a similar problem with a slight difference - When selecting the
reboot or shut down options on screen, the screen goes blank, but the pc
keeps running. Here is where I differ from Mumia, my *Off* button on the
box freezes & the only way is to push the Restart button(which still
responds) & go into windows in order to shut down.
Mumia was asked to supply the outputs from the following commands - I've
taken the liberty of doing the same, in the hope that this will be of
some help in sorting my problem.
My pc is a desktop, 1.7GHZ CPU, 512MB ram,P4.
