: Although this may not strictly be a BIOS problem (Although it perhaps could be solved in BIOS)I do hope you guys don't mind me throwing this one out to discussion.
: I have just moved up from Win98 to Win 2000 Professional. Now my computer will not go off automatically, it just gets to the 'It is now safe to turn off your computer' stage.
: Do I need a patch or what ?

: Apologies if I posted in the wrong section, but some real clever guys frequently post to this section of driverforum.

Sounds like your BIOS is not win2k compatible. I think microsoft has a download to test your BIOS; your mainboard maker MAY (probably doesn't) have a BIOS "update" or maybe a FAQ on the subject.

Good Luck,
