Bad PS, or the long shot, defective on/off switch.

Ok Well That is because of an ISSUE. Not always to do with Hardware. If its a Driver issue or Program issue Windows will automatically restart to protect itself..However this is no good as you cant tell whats wrong..However if you wish to you can set it so that the PC doesnt just restart but will show you a BSOD with a Message of what i wrong.

To do this go to Controll panel>System>advanced>Startup and recovery.

No in this window look to the Check box named ''Automatically restart windows'' Uncheck it and apply these options..


Done.

If its not a windows problem you can check your power switch by just unplugging the power and restart from your motherboard. Best to do this while its off to be safe like always =).

Then to start it up you can use a metal paper clip and touch the two end of the paper clip to the 2 power pins. just put electrical tape or something around the paper clip where you hold it just incase.

or if your rEALLY lazy like me unplug them once you've booted up

Yes well its definately a PSU issue then. Seems your PSU cant power all your componenets and keep your system stable.

actually i had this problem myself, it wasn't the power switch, or the PSU. I had an antec smartpower 450 WATTS before, then switched to an OCZ GameXstream 700WATT and the problem stilll persisted. it wasn't the power switch cause i unplugged the reset and the power switch and used a nail clipper to start and reset the comp. So there's more possibilities out there, but when i set windows to BSOD instead of just rebooting when there was a failure, i did get a BSOD or too before i ended up reformatting the damn thing, now no more reboots, but funnier issues like it not shutting down and turning itself back on from a shutdown. as outlined in my other thread
