    Xp Hangs On ShutDown or Restart (XP Pro)

    I tried the patch from Microsoft and it didn't do anything. Stupid thing stops on the welcome screen . I can move my curser , but thats it . Does not respond to any keys. I have to push my reset button to restart. Everything else seems to work fine. I did have to reload my drivers for the CD Burner & CD Rom. They disappeared on me. <img src=/S/hiding.gif border=0 alt=hiding width=70 height=24>
    I have XP bootable floppys I downloaded from Microsoft . Do I need them to reload registry or something ? I guess I'm grasping at straws. What now?? <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Re: Xp Hangs On ShutDown or Restart (XP Pro)

    Hey guys can I use my XP CD and install over XP without messing up (Files,settings,ETC)? I mean would it just load what it needs? Such as anything missing in the register that might be causing my computer not to shutdown or restart?

    Did you reinstall over the top of what you had? I was surprised you didn't get a reply here on that. I wasn't sure as I haven't been lucky enough to do that just yet, so I don't know if it would write over the OS w/o wiping out your stuff.

    I have noticed that things go smoother when I shave off the edge with, uhhhh, water <IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/icon_beer.gif>

    I didn't install over it . Like I said I guess I wasn't giving it enough time. I would still like to know if you can install over XP <img src=/S/pirate.gif border=0 alt=pirate width=22 height=18> with XP not that I need to. But you never know. I mean it might be a quick fix until you had time to do a clean install.

    <hr>if you can install over XP with XP<hr>
    Yes, it can be done. There are several repair features that you can try using to extricate yourself from a "whoops" before you get to that point, but it works. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> It acts almost identically to clean installation.

    Have you tweaked your service configuration? I suspect you have a service that is not shutting down properly.

    Sorry 'bout that - I was a lazy bum and didn't post the link. There's an excellent guide here: http://www.blkviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

    Print it out and go down the list. Microsoft starts several services by default, some of which you'll never use. If something you see there doesn't make sense, post back here and let the gang pounce on it for you. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Do you remember installing any software recently? The first tenet of troubleshooting for me is to look for what changed. 9 times out of 10, the last change, if it can be undone, will tell you all kinds of interesting things, and undoing it will fix the problem.
