I have an AMD64 3200+ MSI K8T and I can't get windows 2000 to shutdown properly. Whenever I select shutdown, the computer goes to the "Saving your personal settings" dialog, and then shuts down VERY quickly, a little too quickly it would seem. After I shut down, I can't restart the system, files are corrupted all over the place. The first time it happen it corrupted the user profile and the use that shut down couldn't log back it, it wouldn't get passed the "Loading personal settings" dialog. The second time I shut the system down, I couldn't even reboot it at all. It froze with a message saying WINNT/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM is missing or corrupt. Now, I've read that that can happen is the system file gets too big. But I'm not convinced that's what's happening. Seems my computer is just killing itself during shut down. If you select RESTART, it does that fine over and over. It's when you select SHUTDOWN. Anyone have any ideas where to start diagnosing a problem like this? Is it OS related? BIOS? Windows? I'm at a loss.
