Windows 7: 7100 Will not shut down, or reboot

7100 Will not shut down, or reboot

Hi all,
Recently upgraded to 64bit. Seems i have a little problem with both 7077 and 7100. The PC wont shut down, or restart, it just hangs. Occasionally it will restart but not often. Ive tried everything such as Bios checking, unplugging external equipement. Its not any software ive installed, it even does it during setup. Will come to a part of setup where it needs to restart and it hangs, i have to manually restart it for setup to continue.
I hope someone has a clue as to what may be doing it, as i thought it was a 7077 bug and it turns out its more likely my PC then anything else.

My system specs are in my sig lol.
Many Thanks

Hi damoh,

The only thing that I can suggest is that it is probably the result of the overclocking. Reduce this, and see what happens. Oh, and don't forget to clean up those partridge droppings!

Hi
Ive reset the bios back to defaults before i installed and still the same. I thought that to begin with but it didnt help. I may take 2 gig out of ram and see if that helps. cos 4 gig is one make and the other 2 is another.

It's certainly possible that this could be the cause of the problem, especially if the different makes of module use different timings.

So could having ram of different makes actually make performance worse?

Damoh, I hope you continue your efforts to find a solution. So far I am out of ideas, as I am having the same problem as you. Been having it since 7057.

Do you have an m-audio sound card? There is a fix for these hangs here.

I have onboard nvidia sound card mate, but thanks for the heads up. It sometimes shuts down and others now randomly hangs, still no closer to a solution
