Compaq Server reboot/shutdown

I have a Compaq 1600R server that when I reboot or shutdown, it goes through the Windows 2000 shutdown procedure fine but when it gets to the point where it would actually restart or turn off, all I get is a flashing cursor in the upper left hand corner of a black screen. I have to physically power it off and then it starts fine. Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I also had the same happen on a Compaq Proliant 3000 after doing a clean install of Win2K server. Worked fine on NT. Could never figure it out so am interested in answers as well. The server is retired now.

    Same thing here....It was working fine on a previous W2K installation. It's driving me nuts!

    If I remember right there was a compaq bios fix for that (real pain if trying to reboot remotely)

    Do the BIOS update and apply the Compaq Support Pack for the hardware and OS. In case this does not resolve your problem, install the service pack 4. This has to resolve your problem.
