Windows 7: Can't shut down completely

15 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 8.1 64-bit
Can't shut down completely

Hi, I'm having trouble shutting down PC completely.Windows and monitor turn off, but the fans are still working, especially that on of the video card. My config is:

Windows 7 32-bit
GeForce 8600GTS
TV Tuner card Phillips SAA7135
Cooler Master 600W

I've installed 8.1 64-bit on SSD and there was a moment after I've made update when it didn't shut down, but after installing drivers with IObit and DriverPack Solution and Windows Update it worked like a charm. On Windows 7 32-bit I tried with DriverGenius Professional, it downloaded couple of drivers - not all, I''m still stuck.

Well; first thing i would try is to do a system restore back to before you downloaded the drivers; as its possible for whatever reason that one of the drivers is causing the system to "hang" on shutdown. Do that by doing the following: click start, programs, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Choose the date prior to installing the drivers. Reboot; and see if windows will properly detect the drivers needed; then once they are installed; try and shut down and see if the problem is resolved or not. If not post back and we can go from there.

Hello and welcome svt11 mate try running these in safe mode if you like
if these don't work it might be worth giving these a try if you haven't already

download from bleeping computer delete any rubbishthese find.

Mate the IO stuff too I am not a fan at all it causes all sorts of problems when I got stuck with it once before - it might be worth getting rid of it as most of those sorts of software are not much chop anyway including those driver finders - much better and safer to look for the manufacturers support ones.

I just recently had this problem and it turned out to be the power supply not shutting down like it should. Installed a new one and it shuts down completely now.
