    After installing b. 5744 I found that Vista does not restart or shutdown
    properly. It just "hangs" and I would have to manually surpress the reset
    button on my computer to restart or power button to shutdown.

    Anyone have any answers?

    I don't have any answers for you, but I am having the same problem. Vista
    (5600, and 5728) used to shut down or restart in just a few seconds, but now
    (5744) it just shuts the screen off and hangs. But even that takes a while.

    Mine started doing it during the upgrade somewhere near the end. Did yours
    do that too? Just curious.

    Yeah, mine did the same. After I took the cd out and thought it would reboot
    on it's own but it didn't.

    Stephen might have an answer for you but it didn't help me.

  7. Please download the Microsoft Beta Client and report this to Microsoft
    directly. More than likely it is a driver issue. However try to go into the
    control panel (classic mode) and choose power options and choose the high
    performance option and then try again to shutdown.

  8. I have the same problem; I have the nforce3-a939 motherboard but it does not
    use the via raid controller. So I guess I'm still stuck there.

    Thank you for your time.

    I have this problem too. Sleep, hibernate, shutdown, restart, nothing works.
    Monitor will go off, USB ports will power down but nothing else. I have to
    do a hard power down to get it to shut off.

    I'm running an ABIT NI8-SLi board with a GEFORCE 7600GS card. I have a
    Pentium D dual core processor (overclocked) and 2 gigs of OCZ 5400 ram. In
    Windows XP I can shutdown fine. FYI, when the problem started I was using
    an old Nvidia device driver that was compatable with Vista RC1. I've since
    uninstalled and deleted that driver.

    I also have this problem on a machine that previously used XP. This has
    happened recently (a week or so). Have MS released a patch? I have auto
    update switched on (maybe a mistake in vista!)

    The power down problems started earlier than this but, I did receive a
    notification on the last auto update that my copy of windows is not
    genuine or has been hijacked! Every re-validation failed. Re-booted and
    all was ok?

    I'm on an Asrock 775VSTA board with 2Gb ddr2 single 300 GB sata drive
    and an E6300 cpu

  11. Same problem....

    I got a vista 32bit upgrade and tried to install on my PC, this didn'
    work as i had an nVidia 8600GT which has driver problems. So i got
    nVidida 9800GT and it installed fine....ish. It kept freezing not lon
    after i started it and i would have to re-set. I fixed that problem b
    installing new motherboard drivers and now i trying to fi
    restart/shutdown problem.

    I have a gigabyte P35-DS3R motherboard, an Intel Quad CPU Q6600, 4.2
    gb DDR2 RAM, and a brand new nVidia 9800GT, 80gb SATA hard drive.

    Stephen posted a link but i think thats for AMD processors because whe
    i ran the setup is says cannot find hardware.

    Appreciate any help
