  1. I got a friends computer here. It is a dell dimension 3000 running xp. When I press start, shutdown, the mouse arrow gets a little clock next to it for like 1/2 a sec like it wants to shutdown and then dissappears and the computer doesn't shut down. Also the same with restart. What could cause this?
