    Is your BIOS UEFI, with secure boot enabled?

    Video may be the issue. We do need to know video card or chip. Most will work with nomodeset.

    The new i-series Intel chip based motherboards usually have an UEFI/BIOS configuration. Older duo Core usually are just BIOS.

    told severs dont turn off , i can shut down but my system wont shut down
