Shutdown Problem, not solved.

Ok, everytime i go to shutdown, my computer (running XP Pro) reboots. I dont have Roxio or Easy CD creater installed. So, I know its not that. I did have adaware installed but uninstalled it. The problem didnt start right after the un-install though. I actually didnt notice it until i added a third harddrive using a pci Ultra ATA/100 board.

is there anyway i can see what my system logs during shutdown and see if it logs a problem?

When you go to shutdown, does the computer just die, or does it do a restart instead of shutdown? If it restarts, then try this. Open up a command prompt and type
shutdown -s -t 5
This command should tell your computer to shutdown after 5 seconds. (Change 5 to 0 for immediate shutdown). See if that makes it shutdown properly.

it doesnt die upon shutting down. it goes through the entire shutdown process and just when it would normally shutoff, it reboots. I did follow the command prompt idea and it did what it normally does lately, reboots.

I had a PC doing exacly the same thing a couple of weeks ago

the only way to turn it off was to unplug it

after a couple of formats soon realised it wasn't software related

the problem was a 300 watt PSU

replaced it with a 350 & all is fine

:cool:

You are sure the "restart on system failure" feature is disabled? (Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart".)

i have made sure the check mark on system restart on failure is unchecked.
My specs, sorta

Cpu Type AMD Athlon-PECM, 1200 MHz
Motherboard Name Gigabyte GA-7ZX(-1)
Motherboard Chipset VIA VT8363(A) Apollo KT133(A)
System Memory 640 MB (SDRAM)
BIOS Type AMI (10/16/01)


Is it possible that because I am getting short on space on my C:drive it does it? Just curious because it didnt start doing it until recently and recently i've added more to that drive. I have 6% free space left on it.
