I run windows xp and every time I try to turn off my computer my computer blue screens just before the "it is safe to turn off your computer now" message appears. What can I do to fix this problem.

hmm... so it does not turn off at all..? or is it the blue screen your worried about? Also have you overclocked your computer?

No i haven't overclocked the computer. and no it does not turn off at all. it just blue screens and dumps the memory. I can manually turn the computer off with the power switch after the dump. i just replaced my motherboard after my other one failed, i was having the same problems before it died.

well.. what you need to do then is reset the BIOS settings. There, in BIOS, will be a place to do that. Just set it to "yes" to reset them on the next boot (it defualts to no so after you reboot you dont have to chage it back) BUT if your not familiar with BIOS.. then I suggest you have someone who is do it for you. When you reboot you will need to go back in BIOS and make sure everything is set right so please be careful if you do this,.

there are a few settings in bios that might be relevant. most likely 'stop on any error' is enabled. it should be 'stop on NO error' .. now as to what the error IS. good question. one presumes you have all drivers updated to latest, and bios flashed to latest (all from manufacturers) .. if not, do that. one also presumes you have all fixes (critical updates and windows updates) from microsoft, (if not, do that, EXCEPT for the few optional updates that may not apply to your hardware or interests) back to bios, check memory voltage, (it may need raising .1 v to be stable, get advice on that one, ditto memory timings, may need loosening one notch similarly) best if you run ram & processor 'synched' (at same timing Front Side Bus) generally, may be an issue. heat may be an issue, check it, as it affects stability. quantity of hardware versus strength of power supply may be an issue, confirm enough power. NONE of these is likely to be an instant fix, they're general troubleshooting tips when diagnosing errors of unknown cause. it MAY be an installed buggy program. not likely, but possible. good thing to do is run belarc advisor, (www.belarc.com) and get a list of everything (hardware/software) and print it out. or at least, save it as an emailable text file. can save tech effort. When you lack experience, Do Not attempt procedures you aren't very certain you can accomplish. GET HELP. its a lot easier than fixing a 2nd (self created) problem. In general, though, you can find useful info on all procedures by googling for em.. G'luck

It sounds more to me like user's got the power switch plugged into the wrong position or theres a ground loop.
Although to add to mitch's reply, did you replace the board with one similar? Does the new board have an ATX plug on it (4-pin square Molex connector with 2 wires usually yellow and 2 black) and if so is it pluged in securely..?
What I would do first and foremost is eliminate the possibility of spyware/malware..etc. Download HiJack This here to your "Program files" folder. Scan BUT DONT FIX ANYTHING YET. Save the scan to a log (theres a button that says "save log") then copy and paste the results here for us to look at. I dont think thats going to be the problem (malware/spyware that is) but lets make sure first. It is possible that it is a malware and not a configuration problem.
