XP shuts down but computer will not turn off

I have a HP Pavilion a250n running with Windows XP. Something has went wrong in the system from past couple of days. Whenever I shut down the system, its display gets turned off but I still feel the vibration of hard disk and all other aspects in the cabinet. So I manually need to hold download power button for about 10 seconds and then turn it off completely.

I don?t think this could be any virus issue because I have fully updated Norton internet security which runs scan twice every day. So whats the problem ? Please help.

  • Navigate to the following Registry Key:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

  • Data Type: REG_DWORD [Dword Value] // Value Name: PowerdownAfterShutdown
