Mandrake shutting down early and freezing on startup

Hey guys,

I have a problem that I've been unable to solve and don't know what to do. Sometimes when I say shut down on the computer the loading bar will show it shutting down, will get halfway, and then will turn off. I wouldn't consider this a big deal but it's actually shutting down early and I know this because when the computer comes back on it gives me the message

'your computer appears to have shut down uncleanly, Force integrity check?'

On top of that my computer often freezes when booting up at the point 'Checking new Hardware'. It seems to be my floppy drive it's checking when this happens.

I've mostly used mandrake 9.1 but decided to move to 9.2 awhile ago. I had these troubles back then so I erased the drive and reinstalled 9.1 which again worked fine for the past few months. Three days ago I erased the drive again and reinstalled Mandrake 9.2 and I'm getting all the same issues I had before. I've had some others as well but I appear to have resolved them. This isn't that big of a deal because I've been leaving the computer on all the time recently anyways, but this is something that I would need to get resolved.


Gnome 2.4
NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti (Driver version: 53.36)
