Post Slight problem when shutting down? [Mine; K6 2 500; winME]

sponsored links

 
Since re-formatting I've noticed that when I shutdown it goes straight past the "it is now safe to blah blah blah" screen. The message flashes for a split second then the screen just goes dark. When I switch the PC back on, everything is normal, i.e. scandisc doesn't run, it just starts up as normal. I'm just wondering if I can get my safe to switch off screen back?

But, it didn't do that before I re-formatted?

Okay, why on earth do you want to manually have to turn the machine off???

If you really wan't to, go to Control Panel and into the Power section. Somewhere in there will be an option to disable auto shutdown. Otherwise it will be in your BIOS.
