I am not sure what happned as I have a HP 5170 Pavillion laptop that has XP Home SP 2 on it and all of a sudden when I do the following:
START/ TURN OFF COMPUTER then select RESTART the computer will shut down as normal and say it is logging off......then it just will never RESTART itself.
I end up having to PRESS and hold the button to restart the computer.
I did not actually do anything to cause it....all I can assume is the Automatic Updates from Microsoft did not set to well with it...but it has never done this before.
Does anyone know why the computer wont restart itself when I choose that option.....I noticed it now does it on any problem that needs to shut down and restart....very strange.
Hope someone has some ideas......and Thank you in Advance.
