I'm encountering a weird problem that my Google Fu is unable to solve, so I thought I'd ask here before re-installing my OS. I'm running a Windows 7 machine with an Intel i5-250 and an Nvidia GTX 560 GPU. I have a small(-ish) SSD drive for the OS and a larger mechanical drive for everything else.
After changing out my large HDD for an even bigger one, my computer suddenly decided to not shut down anymore. When I tell windows to shut down, it goes through the motions up until the final screen where the little wheel that indicates process suddenly stops and nothing else happens. I can hear the fans power down, and I'm able to do a manual shut down. So I'm assuming the problem is software-related.
I built the machine myself, but beyond that I'm not particularly computer-savvy. The BIOS scares me.
Please let me know if anyone have encountered the same problem. As mentioned, I've googled the problem, but not had any success with the small selection of fixes I've found. This might be because I lack the terminology to make my searches specific enough.
Thanks for reading, and let me know if I need to provide more specific info.
