Reboot 5 seconds after shut down.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
I'm having issues with a computer I just built and was just seeking some advice

First of all here are the specs:

-Intel I3 2120 (stock) CPU
-Asus H61-M Pro (B3 revision) MOBO
-4GB Kingston RAM
-500GB WD Blue HDD
-Corsair CX430 PSU
-Bitfenix Shinobi CASE

As the title says, everytime I turn off the computer using "start > shutdown", it reboots after 5 seconds.
I have just updated the BIOS this morning. I also used CMD > shutdown -s (as an admin) which worked twice last night, but longer does today.
I tried googling the issue.. It seems to be quite common but I can't find a single forum online that has a proper fix for it.
I'm starting to get annoyed at this issue though, especially because the computer isn't mine but a friend I built it for.

Any input is more than welcome.

Thanks guys,

Jtchal

Sometimes the bios will have a setting where it will power on automatically when it's plugged in.

Either that or you have a shorted part somewhere in your Powersupply or Power button is broken

In the BIOS, the only thing I found that could be relevant is in APM > Restore AC power loss > Power off. It also gives me the option of having Power on and Last state but Power off was already selected.

The only way to turn off the computer is by holding the power button down. I really can't narrow it down though since it was rebooting pretty much a second after powering off last night but it takes a few extra seconds today...

Check your Grounds and if you can try another power supply i would do that first.

Does it only do it when its booting and shutting down from that drive, usually that would be caused by a peripheral that is set in the bios to power on like mouse or keyboard. I would reset the cmos.

I have just unplugged the Corsair CX430 PSU and I plugged in an old cheap "No label" PSU and it's shutting down fine... Could it possibly be a faulty PSU?
I will be placing the new PSU in another system to see if it does the same thing now...
