I have a Celeron based PC that takes 20 minutes to shutdown once the keyboard instruction is given. It boots normally and responds to holding the power button to shut it down quickly. However, when I do shut it down by holding the power button it does not do a disc scan upon the next restart. This problem has been going on for a couple of months at least. Prior to that it shutdown in a timely manner. I have not been able to associate the problem with any new software.

The machine has a Celeron processor and is running XP home SP2. Any suggestions?

Hi majackson. Windows won’t shutdown, give this a try

go to start > run >type in cmd then hit enter

type in shutdown -r -f -t 05 then hit enter

Also take a look at this site Quick ShutDown

it maybe your registry not shutting or closing properly

holding the power button to shutdown only creates the computer to crash
