Default PC won't shut down properly [; ; winME]

I'm using Windows ME and a Radeon 9000 both not overclocked.
Recently my computer stopped shutting down properly. I click shut down, the screen turns to black and then nothing. The PC is still on with a black screen. Mouse and keyboard doesn't work during this. I have to hold the power button down to turn it off.

I SUSPECT that it might be overheating but not sure. If this is the case is it likely that its the CPU or the graphics card? It might not be that at all.

I tried antivirus scan, Scandisk (thorough) and also defrag, but defrag freezes up.

Any ideas?
