Hi I am running win2K on a Dell optiplex gX400.
I started getting the wont power off after shutdown but re-boots itself.
I reset the bios settings to trap any errors and now on shut down I get the blue screen of death as shown below.
Any help or advice will be appreciated, thanks

The problem appears to be with ntoskrnl.exe, which is required for Boot up.
Try running sfc /scannow.
You will need your Win 2000 os disk.
