just finished installing a 20 gb internal harddrive. it was piggy backed to the cd rom in order to allow the primary harddrive its optimal performance the problem is that in shutting down the system the "it is safe to turn off your computer" message does not appear. is this due to the fact that the 20 gb is still on? (powerwise). normally the primary drive would shutdown and the message would appear. kindly advise

thank you

Hi, Welcome to TSG.

So does the screen freeze on "shutting down windows 98"? Or does the system actually power down, without telling you that it is "now safe to shutdown"?

I imagine that it's freezing on the "Shutting down Windows 98" screen. Presuming this is the case, go to this link and follow the steps listed to help determine what the problem is.

Shutdown problems could be a number of different things. I usually find that it has to do with Anti-Virus software, but thats just been my experience.

Good Luck,

Columbo:)
