    Can anyone tell me what can I do?......The problem I have is that I installed Windows XP Professional on two identical motherboards,
    PC Chips 758LMR, with a Pentium III CPU and 256 SDRAM. They are supposed to automatically shut down, but they will stay on the black window with the Microsoft logo that says "it is now safe to turn off your computer", or something like that , like the way it was during the old Windows 95 days. What can I do? Is the problem "software related"? In order to turn off the computer with these new ATX Power Supplies, I have to press the buttom and wait for a few seconds until it shuts down. That's quite annoying. Please let me know. Thanks, Xavier57
