Goes through the shut down sequence and the screen goes black. It will hang with the black screen forever. If I hit the power button nothing happens. I can restart with the reset button. Must shut off power at the surge protector to stop the machine from running.

There can be a number of causes of what you describe. Have you added any hardware, particularly usb, lately? Or any software.

Here is a site that goes through some known issues of windows not powering computer off.

You may like to check your CPU progree under ctrl alt del and in the task manager, check the process that is running using your resources. I believe there are back end programs running so it takes time to shut down. :thumbsup:

You may like to do a virus and adware scan and u may also like to check in your control panel add and remove program, the applications that u did not installed but it exist there. :flowers:
