Click out of it and Error 216@000043F2 Comes up and everything locks up and when I try to shut down screen goes half dark and that locks up. I have to kill power. Thanks Merk

RE: does any know what error 216@00002938 is?

You click out of what? Please give details on when you get the error. Are you talking about at shutdown? If so, hit ctrl-alt-del and end task on everything EXCEPT explorer and systray. Then shut down. Does it shutdown properly? If so, you've got something running in the background that is keeping Windows from shutting down.

Check your C:\windows\start menu\programs\startup folder and temporarily move everything in there into a different folder. Can you shutdown now? There could be registry entries for other items that run in the background. But, that's another story. Repost if neither of the above help you.
