Dear All,

Just a quick one.....

Is it possible the tower/case can cause a short in the circuit a stop windowns from starting up/shutting down properly?

Anyone else experienced this?

Thanks

Maybe. Something shortening out by touching the case/tower isn't too uncommon. Taking everything out of the tower and running it lying on a non-conductive surface is one of my standard troubleshooting steps. That a short would cause problems starting up/shutting down windows I've never heard of, but I would not put it in the realm of impossibility.

Thanks Mr Alpha,

I have already done what you suggested and the system worked fine this problem also occured when attempting to add a TV card to the system. This is why I figure the Tower/case could be the problem or even the power/reset switches?

Many thanks
