Thanks for taking an interest
No, it just doesn't do anything ... when closing down I go to the desktop and make sure that there are no open programs. I then click on the shut down button ... the button disappears, but the computer doesn't shut down. the exact same happens when I click on the restart button ... nothing happens.
The computer starts okay and runs okay ... it's just when shutting down I have problems.
