I am just curious as to why my computer doesn't shut down every time I go to shut it down? I have a HP XL753 with WIN ME and it may shut down fine for a few days and then again it may decide to just keep running after I go to shut down? The screen goes black and the prompt just blinks in the left hand corner of the monitor? I have to press the power button until it shuts off??? If anyone knows why this is happening; I would appreciate any ideas. I get any updates that are sent to me; so I do not know if there is a patch for this or not? THANKS!!!!!!
Had to laugh out loud (lol?) when I read (from MS link above re:
"not caused by a problem in Windows 98 or Windows ME, but may be caused by a design change in Windows 98 or Windows ME. " !!!!!! Is it just me, or is that one of the finest examples
of symantical redefinition ever? "Problem," MS- style, magically
becomes "design changes" Whatever you choose to call it, MS,
it acts, quacks, walks and talks like a problem from the hapless
end user's point of view!:morph: :morph:
All I can say is welcome to ME. ME has to be the most worthless piece of garbage that Microsoft ever made. The only reason they made it was to sub what Billy Boy lost in the courts.
Isn't it amazing that they come out with ME and call it the hot stuff and then right away, right behind it they come out with XP and they dont even bother to come out with a second edition of ME...why? Becuase it is junk.
I had it on my laptop and got rid of it right quick.
Your better off with 98SE than you are with ME. If you really want stability go with 2kpro or XP.
