Pc restarts instead of shutting down???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Howsit guys, in some desperate need of some help, when i select shut down my pc just restarts, what do you guys think could be the cause?
I just got a new antec case about a month ago and come to think of it, i can remember my pc ever shutting down normally with the new case?
But im sure it did coz i can't remember having this problem when my pc was in the tv room.
Mind my bad memory, im a chronic green smoker so my mind is shot.
Anyone know of any virus that does this?

go to power options and go to advanced... now check what the case buttons do, and make sure it is set to shut down...

Also, check to make sure you plugged in the case cables into the right pins on the mobo... I know that ASUS has little "q-connectors" which make it easier to figure out how to plug in the case to the mobo...

Go to Start | Control Panel | Power Options (Performance and Maintenance).

Open the APM tab, and make sure it's enabled (checked).

If above is set or doesn't resolve the issue, in your PC's BIOS settings, check to see if you have a Plug and Play option. If you do, try toggling this setting (off if it's on, and vice versa).

also, if all else fails, if you LOG OFF first then hit turn off PC from the bottom left corner that should do the trick.

Also happens when i use the case button,
The bios keeps on resetting the CMOS randomly when i switch of on the psu power switch which is the only way i can switch the pc off.
I think it might be the BIOS. I currently have a P5E with 1003 bios i think, can't remember exactly.
I used to have the Rampage Formula 0403 BIOS and it was rock solid hitting 3.2Ghz on 1.44V with my 1.325VID Q6600 G0.
Now i get this randomly restarting and constant CMOS resets.
Any advice on BIOS and stuff?
Thanks for your help guys, its highly appreciated. +REP for all.
