Platinum Carpet V.I.P- Board Master

I'm not sure what's wrong. My computer won't shut off now for any reason. I've tried pressing the power button and I've tried shutting it down manually from the startup menu, nothing. The only way I can shut it off is to turn it off from the surge protector.

What could be causing this? I've tried running a virus scan but then it always freezes up halfway and never completes. Any remedies?

Have you tried a different virus scanner?

If the power button gives you nothing, then its likely your motherboard.

How long are you holding the button down? Usually it'll turn off after holding it for five or so seconds.

If it constantly freezes when virus scanning, reformat and reinstall Windows.

Before you go reformatting try other things first.

First make sure your basic motherboard/processor/RAM is calculating and moving data correctly with this

What OS are you using? I have a feeling this may be ME-tan's fault.

Yeah, I'm thinking you all are right and it might be my motherboard. I've had my PC for 3 years and it might be starting to get old.

I use Windows XP as my OS.
