This question already has an answer here:

I am using a Compaq Presario C700. Before upgrading from Ubuntu 12.10 everything was fine, but since I switched to Ubuntu 13.04, I can't shutdown my system in any way. The only thing I could do is hold the power button until it shuts down on its own.

I have tried using the terminal to shutdown, but it's no use. When I click on the shutdown button on the title bar, there is no option for shutdown. The only thing I could see is Lock Screen and Log Out. What should I do?
