    Most cases it is, Drivers that are loaded for any hardware device that are incompatible, corrupt or damaged can cause the computer to lockup when shutting down. Program (software) that is running is preventing windows from shutting down, any messages when this happens just as you shutdown ? Any changes ever made in the BIOS ? Was it updated recently ?

    Check Event Viewer, select Custom Views then Administrator Events. Look for red errors, highlight each and see if it shows about this issue.

    Most likely that it's a Display Adapter Driver. I had this issue 2 years ago with Windows 8/8.1. All I did was update the Driver and the issue was resolved.

    If highlight the red errors in the center of Event Viewer and to the right select Copy to Text, then paste into a notepad and post it here.

    I recently installed an SDD and since then im having the issue. Any idea? I have tried many things and need help
    Surely that is the clue here... have you tried contacting the SSD manufacturers helpline/forums to see if this is a known issue.

    I said Event Viewer, not the BIOS. Think i said unless you recently went in there and made any changes to it, otherwise do not mess around in there unless you know how to change things.

    I have an ASUS MB and if I release the power button after screen shuts down it restarts the system. I have to hold power button down until led and fans shut down.
