    When I do a "restart", on the computer screen I could see "log out", a few seconds later, "shutdown." At this point, the system stalls at "shutdown." I waiting for over 5 minutes, and it was still stalled at "shutdown." What is the Problem? :(

    To continue working with my computer, at the ""Shut down stall", I remove the power cord from my computer. About a minute later, I reconnect my power cord and click the power button. After that there is no problem. Except when I do a "Restart."

    check task manager settings,available memory, cpu usage before you restart
    some times devices and applications can cause problems also check the power management settings

    You got my head spinning. How do I check my "task manager settings, available memory? Where are these located? When I get there, what steps should I take?

    Thank you for responding

    right lick on the start bar click task manager

    do you know what memory is installed in the pc.check it against what is available for running applications after the OS has taken it share.

    check the cpu menu see what the cpu is running at percentage wise if its nearly 100 then you need to check what is running causing the high use.
