Windows 7: Computer wont shut down

Computer wont shut down

Hello there.

I have a couple of problems.. first of all my computer wont shut down. It looks like it is going to in the beginning and after the "Shutting down" window the screen turns blank but the computer is still running and a couple of seconds later it starts to boot up, I noticed that the boot up image stays on for a while and I also hear the hard disks spinning up again, as if they had stopped. This has been like this since I installed Windows 7.

I've made sure that the Power button is set to shut down the computer in the "Taskbar and startmenu properties" and I've also undone the "Automatically restart" in Startup and Recovery.


Another "problem" or so. It seems like windows 7 thinks my desktop computer is a laptop.. o.O

And the third and final problem has to do with my wireless network adapter. It's the Realtek RTL8185.

It's been troublesome since the beginning. The windows drivers don't work one bit so I had to get the 64bit drivers online from another computer. Had to force the computer to use them (Have disk) and then it would work for a while until i disconnect and windows can't figure out why.. I've read on the web that there have been issues with it and Windows 7 and this fix is said to be other drivers but they semi-fail me.. Right now I'm using a sucky USB adapter. Seems to work so far, if this works the next 2 days it's definitely just that Realtek thing that's failing. Maybe I can find older drivers.

I doubt anyone has the answer to this issue, I know I'm not giving um information about it.. right now I'm trying to find the CD that came with the damn thing..

Anyhow, hope you can help with the first 2 problems.

Oh, and my computer setup:

CPU -> Intel Core2Duo E6750 (2,66Ghz) Clocked too 3,04Ghz.
Mainboard -> Intel nForce 650i
PSU -> Cooler Master 500W
GPU -> Geforce 8800GTS 320mb
RAM -> 4 GB
HDD ->3 HDD's make a total of 1,5TB

I'm using Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

Cheers!

Heh, thanks anyway

Are you talking about the wireless card? It worked fine on WinXP pro 32 bit. Maybe windows will release new drivers in the future that witch will fix it.

Update: computer seems to work fine now. Shutdowns as it should and the USB adapter is giving me no trouble at all. I think that other adapter must have been screwing everything up for me..

Even installed another GPU (running in SLI) and everything is great!

I'll try another driver I found today for that other network adapter to see if it works any better, will update on that later.
