Windows 7: New install Windows7 Professional 64 bit problem

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
New install Windows7 Professional 64 bit problem

When I go to start> shut down, windows 7 shuts down and my monitor loses input, but my computer (fans, lights, processor, hdds, ect.) stays on completely. I have to manually hold the power button to shut down. I have checked the power settings and googled this problem but havnt had any luck. Previously ran Vista Home and no problem. Also installed 8 gig of Corsair ram previous to installing 7. purchased mosly new software other than Office2007.

Anyone have any ideas? thanks for any help!
