I have a HP Pavilion A700n that is about 5-6 years old Win XP Home
with 2G RAM

About a year ago I installed a new video card a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

Ever since then I have not been able to shut down the computer with
out having to hold the power button as the computer reboots. While
this is not a major problem because I only shut down once every 2-3
months I would like to cure the problem.

In addition I want to know if I go to add and remove programs is it
safe to remove all the references to the VIA?S3G UniChrome IGP video?

Below is the information I copied from System
Information>Components>Display

Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes
you can uninstall the previous video card...

don't know if that will solve your problem though...
worth a try I guess

At that time I also installed a Logitech wireless mouse with set point
software I think it might be the mouse software but I seem to have the
latest version for it.
Anyone have any ideas?
