    Update:
    The computer this time turn off without any issues, by just clicking the Shut Down in windows.
    Would that mean is cured of that dont want to shut down.

    Now is it recommended to update the BIOS?

    hehehe, oh no. It takes longer than that.

    Look at about mid screen to the right. It will have a "Pass" and below that is the number of COMPLETE passes it has made.

    Personally, I make certain that my system AND memory is 100% stable before flashing. No sense hosing a perfectly good working motherboard due to a possible bad flash.

    I also don't update BIOSes if everything is working as it should. So if everything is working there now, I'd leave well enough alone.

    See that, just mentioning my name fixed the problem...

    I would love to know what actually happened.

    Cloudbuster, do you reboot that PC a lot, or just let it run all the time and reboot when you must do so?

    The problem started after a Windows Update of who knows how many updates, at least five, or do you know?

    Who knows if the shutdown problem is cured, if it keeps working after five shutdown's, it should be fine.

    About the BIOS update, I don't think a BIOS update will bring back the shutdown problem. You probably should do the BIOS update, use Instant Flash on a USB flash drive, the safest method. The new BIOS has some important changes (CPU microcode) and other good things added since 1.10. The first and early BIOS versions of any board usually are not very good, I flash to new versions all the time and never had a problem.

    Update I just exited Memtest.
    Run for 10:05:40 almost all night
    Pass:9
    Errors: 0
    In the test it show 933Mhz DDR3-1866 dont know if that normal.
    Slot 0 4096MB DDR3-1866 F3-14900CL8-4GBXM *XMP*
    Slot 1 4096MB DDR3-1866 F3-14900CL8-4GBXM *XMP*
    __________________________________________________ ______

    Hi, I only rebooted the PC when asked, after I was installing MoBo drivers or when Windows wanted to reboot after updates.
    I just build it about 3 days ago, I installed a new Windows 7 so it told me it was outdated. It was on automatic update. Dont know how many updates it performed, But I remember seeing one time about 90 item needing update.

    So it seem that the RAM is fine.
    I guess it was a windows update that caused the issue cause before I changed the RAM timing it was also working just fine at the time of Shut down.
    I will go see if I can buy a USB flash drive today.

    Will do about 5 consecutive shutdowns later on and see if it stay running or not.

    933x2=1866 That's the way DDR(Double Data Rate) is displayed/shown in many utilities.
