Shut down problem!

Been havin a problem with my machine the last while.

Now and again when i go to shut down it wont shut down fully. it gos as far as the login/outscreen and hangs up. wont shut down unless i force it.

sometimes its a blank colour and others it just stays on the logon screen. the times that it did go to a blank colour it has been kinda colours that are in the logon screen if ya know what i mean. sometimes green others kinda a dirty white!

Any ideas whats causing this and how i might sort it out?
