Problems shutting down FC4


I am having problems shutting my machine down. I get the message [<c0103c0c>]common_interrupt+0x1a/0x20

Havn't a clue what this means. i am having to reset the machine and boot into windows xp before I can shut the machine down.

Sometimes I get the error "syscal_call+0x7/0xb

Can some one help please.

How did you shut your computer down, via gui, by command shutdown or poweroff or halt etc... ?

Let try this command
Code:
init 1

Tried that but I still get the same problem.

I am trying to shut down in GUI mode from either root or as a normal user.

I logout, ending the current session and then try to shut down the machine or even reboot. But I still get the same kind of error, common_interrupt. In the end I have to hit the restart button on the PC. To shut the machine down I end up going into XP and clsoing it form there.

Do I need to re-install FC4 and will I loose all my settings if I do that?

I would rather not re install. Can I un-install CCRMA even though I do not boot into the FC CCRMA option that I get at boot.

I think you have get a hardware problem
But Let try some more way to shutdown PC.
When you are in GUI mode, logout to save your settings.
Then tried the command
Code:
poweroff
I am sorry that is all I know, if you post the full output of your PC, I may have some more suggest.
Remember not to give up, there must be a driver for your hardware.

I tried that but still no luck.

Can anyone please help....

My last resort is to re-install FC 4 but I really would not like to do that.

If I am right that you have incompatible hardware, reinstall won't help you.
Let 's try this last idea.
type command
Code:
halt
Then you can press the power button on your case to turn the PC off

I re-installed FC 4 and now the problem has gone away, so I do nto think the problem is incompatiable HW.

thanks for your input anyway.
