    I recently finished a new build and clean installed vista premium. Mind you the kids do fool around with this computer. Now it has begun to hang on shutdown. What's the procedure for trouble shooting this?

    e6750
    Vista Home Premium 32bit
    2GB Corsair XMS 6400
    Asus P5B-E
    Xfinity power supply 600W
    Asus 8800GT
    old generic dvd drive
    floppy (why? Habit I guess)
    HP 9100 CDR

    Hello.

    Boot to safe mode, & test.
    If the problem does not occur in safe mode, perform clean boot troubleshooting.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;310353
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135 << for Vista, but applies equally to XP, and better written.

    See the bottom of the blue background section at

    In XP, you can set your computer to clear the pagefile.sys at shutdown, which will prolong your shutdown time. It takes an edit of the registry in XP. I don't know how to do it in Vista, or if it is possible, in Vista, but it is something to consider.

    You might find something here.
