    So how is this?! Fresh Vista install [same cd etc] is fine... shuts down perfectly.

    Ok, so maybe it's the drivers I think to myself... Install the GB drivers [motherboard, ISATA/GSATA & Marvell Miniport LAN] and reboot. Shuts down fine after it reboots.

    Take my Vista install that won't shut down properly to a friend who has virtually the same specs as me [except he has a P35-DS3L instead of my P965-DS3P] and after it puts on the generic device drivers when booting up... it shuts down normally!!!

    So it's an issue relating specifically to that particular vista install and my motherboard. The only thing I haven't tried is installing all the windows updates [~200MB worth] to see if it's one of them that broke it. I honestly don't know what it could be at this point, it points to drivers of some sort due to the fact that:
    - New install works fine
    - Old install works fine on similar hardware but without the 965 drivers
    BUT
    - New install with 965 drivers works fine.

    Computers give me the ****s sometimes

    Edit:
    Well even more interesting, I put the original vista install back in my PC, and lo-and-behold, it appears that putting those generic drivers on when it was in the other PC has fixed the issue. So that's a possible solution if you ever have someone with this issue again. A format & reinstall appears to be a solution, but it doesn't appear to be necessary.

    Thanks for your help :)

    Glad you got it fixed up!

    Yeah, computers can be a little bit hard to deal with for sure!
