I have a strange problem. My Gigabyte GA-7DXR motherboard will not shut-down. When I hit shut-down it just restarts and I have to manually hold the power button to keep it off. It doesn't always do this but most of the time it does.
Another maybe related problem is that sometimes it will not power up. I'll hit the power (on) button and nothing will happen. I just keep trying and sometimes the reset button will turn it on. Very strange. Any ideas?

erm have you tried msconfig/advanced tick in "disable fast shotdown" (assuming win98)

take it easy......just throwin out ideas here, amigo, not applying for the nobel award in science. having said that, though, his post pretty clearly indicates that this problem is pretty consistant, which to me indicates crossed connectors. i have seen this problem before and that was the issue.
