    DZ77RE-75K Motherboard  - Shutting Down hanging at end of cycle

    Ron Green

      I am hoping someone can offer some input on where to start troubleshooting an issue where I select "Shut Down" in Windows * and it progresses fine and then hangs? When that happens the displays (2) power switches are flashing like they do normally after shutting a successful power down but the drive light is solid and I can hear the fan running. I then have to hold the on/off power button in to force the system to stop. When I boot up everything is fine with no Windows warning messages and it goes right into it with no problems or delays. It boots up in about 37 seconds. Also, if I select restart, it seems to take a about a minute to cycle whereas before it took about 10 seconds to get to the restart point. Any suggestions on where I should start looking? I am at BIOS 0061 which I moved to after a Windows Update caused some problems and it corrected it. Thanks in advance for any help.
