I recently got my new laptop, a dell M1730, with vista preinstalled on it. As I hate Vista, I installed windows XP professional on it. Now, everything seems fine, except that when I try to reboot my system, or also when I try to do a shutdown, it doesnt go all the way. Windows seems to stop all applications, but then it gets in a state where you still can see your desktop, and your mouse (you can move the mouse, not create selection boxes), but the system seems to stay in that state until I force it to shutdown manually with my laptop on/off button. Does anyone have any clue what this could be?
