I'm running an emcachines p3 500 mhz, 128 megs Ram, voodoo3 card, with windows98 (the newer version).

When I normally shut down my comp, it makes 3 short beeps, then the light on the power button goes dark, and you can hear the moving parts coming to a halt. Now, I still get the 3 beeps, but the light on the power button stays lit, and instead of everything stopping completely, it sounds like an idling motor. From the sound of it, the fan is going in spurts.

If I hit the power button again, it boots up as normal with no problems.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the link Speedo, but the database didn't help me much. After restarting and shutting down about a dozen times, I've noticed that the comp actually does shut off, and all the parts stop, but it takes about 1 minute for everything to come to a complete halt, whereas yesterday it took maybe 2 seconds.

So no harm, no foul, I guess. Thanks again. :)
