Reasons for computer not shutting down
My guess is that your preinstalled operating system is Windows® 7 or Windows Vista ® or maybe Windows® XP. The operating system often blocks the shut down process, when it detects a serious problem in the system. When any critical error occurs during the shut down process, the PC safety settings trigger a restart instead of going into switch off mode. Such errors usually occur due to conflicts in some installed applications, especially CD burning software. Conflicts in hardware configuration are also a leading cause for shut down failure. A lot of time is consumed as Windows ® shuts down each service associated with its operation; and deletes the contents of the virtual memory as well as the hibernation system cache.
Resolving the issues
It may take some time to resolve hardware incompatibility issues, as there are multiple hardware components. To make it easy, start by removing the hardware installed lately. If no change is observed, replace one component at a time with ones from a working computer.
Slow shut down process can be resolved easily by disabling some services and features that are not critical for operation. CD burning software should be upgraded to a more stable version or uninstalled.
Last but not the least, you can turn off the default restart setting to manage your shut down issues.
Some precautionary measures can be put in place to ensure that you do not experience shutdown problems. These include desisting from installing applications unnecessarily as some of these cause delays during shut down. Hardware upgrades and installations need to be done with care so as not to affect the system configurations.
