This is a strange issue. All of a sudden, the computer will not restart or shut down. What happens is when I do either one, Windows Vista does its thing shutting down, the screen goes black, then the power light stays on, the the hard drives works for a few seconds. The power will stay on until I hold the power button down for a few seconds to shut it down. When it finally shuts down, the power lights, and fan go on for a fraction of a second, then the computer is finally off.
Turning the computer on is just fine and everything works fine when I am in Windows. Nothing freezes, no overhating, in fact I will say this is the most stable computer I have used.
