1 x CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
1 x ASRock Fatal1ty P67 PROFESSIONAL (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
When I click the "Shut Down" button within windows, the computer will restart and not shut down.
When I physically HOLD DOWN the "Shut Down" button on the computer case, the PC restarts.
I do not have any BSOD's. I do have a memory dump file that say's to be 470,628KB in size but I can't open it.
I have tried disabling my overclock and I have left my overclock on and it DOES NOT make a difference. When I press the "Shut Down" it restarts. When I hold the "Shut Down" button down on my case, it also only restarts.
I would like to add that my motherboard has "Shut Down" button as well and a "Restart" button on the Motherboard, when I hold the "Shut Down" button it also restarts.
I was starting to think about the small 30 Gauge wires that have the super small headers, you know the ones that go to the bottom right of the MOBO, I was thinking perhaps that I got those mixed up in different spots.
But that doesnt logically explain or solve the problem I have from shutting down from within windows, does it?
Any help from you guys would be much appreciated. I will vote "Best Answer" for anyone that can give me useful solutions. I am not computer challenged by all means and I hope that someone else in the world has my same problem and I hope from this thread you guys can help solve their problems too. . .
windows is likely crashing while it is trying to shut down. try to disable the 'automatic reboot'
control panel->system properties->system->advanced settings->startup and recovery and uncheck the box that says automatically restart
Check windows power settings to make sure you don't have a setting set to reboot at shutdown. Would be similar to the laptop option that asks you what to do when the lid is closed. If you built this yourself, check the motherboard power and case connections and do a BIOS update.
So, when I turn off my computer or hit the "Shut Down" button within windows or on the computer tower case, the computer actually shuts down for about 5 seconds and then it turns on again.
Would I be doing any damage to the computer over the long term time when I switch off the PSU switch on the power supply in the brief moment that the computer is actually off? Like hitting the Power Supply "Off" switch before the computer turns back on?
