Windows 7 - Computer restarts on shutdown

After installing an Nvidia 8400 graphics card, my computer has been incapable of shutting down without having to pull the plug on it.

Could you provide more detail? Please run Furmark to see if there are any GPU errors.

Event Log

The log flows from bottom to top. Just look for the Description of each event.

The event following the sleep command is:

The browser has forced an election on network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{60C846D5-56C4-44F2-8576-552E35D3F560} because a master browser was stopped.

Run the Furmark Test and I will take a look at the description log.

Leave it for some time. No, it will NOT burn your graphics card.

I don't understand, is it a timed test? Otherwise I'm having trouble finding the results

Run the Furmark Test for few hours - I will grab the owner (Jonathan_King) of the Furmark tutorial (I did not make that tutorial at all...)
Quote:
Watch for artifacts on the screen, and keep an eye on the temperature log. If you see artifacts, or the temperature levels out, stop the test.
