Grub errors

Hello everyone.

The title says it all such terms, Grub is not showing "Warning, the system shut down" or that it will close some demons.
It happened after a reinstallation, and I have not tampered with anything in the system. Grub do it right at the first shutdown, but since it has not done so.

I am running with kernel 2.6.26-1-686, and distribution is Debian 5.0.
What can the error caused and how I solve it?

You're pretty vague about your problem. You don't give any indication of why you think it is a Grub problem. Most Grub errors are numbered. Re-installation of...??Debian? What else is on the computer, only Debian?

I know not whether it is Grub, but Debian tends to write a red message that says "Warning, the system turns off" and then shows a lot of messages where it says "stopping <deamon name>" and then says " Will now halt ", and the computer turns off.

Debian is the only OS on my computer. I do not want to reinstall the whole system again.

When Debian shut down for the moment, it only show "acpid: exiting" and shuts down.
