    Hey, I've recently installed a sound card in my girlfriends computer (soundcard from ebay) and the computer now wont shut down. I'm guessing this is a hardware fault, but figured I'd check here first. What action should I take if it is a hardware fault?

    Thanks

    Ya, its better to check the sound card on a separate slot and on another machine.

    How did you shutdown the machine, using power button or follows the Log Off option to end the session?

    Listen to Ghost and make sure that you try different slots and try it on a different computer
