Computer restarts when I attempt to shutdown

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My gf's pc has started giving trouble. This started the night when her LAN stopped working. The specs of her rig are- Athlon II x2 270, 2x2GB1333mhz G Skill Ram and the GA 78lmt-s2. Her computer is around 3 months old. She was using her net during a thunderstorm and she said she thought she heard something spark and after that her LAN Port stopped working. So i got her a LAN Card. Then she told me that whenever she tries to shut down the computer it restarts. So I headed over and thought it best to install Windows 8 thinking that a fresh install would solve the problem. However, it din't. I've tried everything that included playing around with the power settings, entering into the registry and trying to disable autoboot and all possible solutions regarding any hardware forcing it to reboot. I'm so confused as the problem still arises. It's as if a poltergeist has taken over her computer and I'll only be at peace once it's fixed frown.gif. Guys do you know what the problem could be?

Solved it. Wake on lan also known as PME in the bios was enabled. Disabling it fixed it.
