Power off

I have installed a new mobo, and everytime i do a shutdown, the system restarts, and i am having to physically switch off at the mains to turn off the pc just before it restarts.

Where would the settings for this be? have i missed something on my m/b? I have checked the power options in windows, and via bios, but am unsure what half of it means.

I can give more info if needed

thanks

Did you do a clean installation after you changed motherboards?

I know you're not alone. I've seen this issue discussed here before. Use the search feature at the top, right to search the forums for the answer. I know it's here but i'm not sure where.

do you have roxio ez cd creator 5? If so you need the xp patch for it. it can be found at there website. This is what it is called: XP_up_Roxio_cd_Platinum.exe

it fixes the never ending loop of restarting. I dont know what roxio has to do with rebooting, but it works.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
