I have read through about 6 pages in this section of the forum and tried searching the entire forum for a solution to my problem. I simply cannot get my system to shut down and stay off. I tell windows to shut down. It goes to the shutdown screen, turns off and then starts itself again. I have built a few systems before, but i have never encountered this before and i really don't know what to do.
Am i looking at a compatibility issue? could i have place one of the front panel connection on the wrong set of pins? Software problem?
Vista 64 Home Prem. SP1
Biostarr TA770 A2+
Creative Xtreme Gamer
Corsair XMS2 2x2GB
Nope it's not the case. I am able to shut it down by holding the power button. I'm currently running with the same case as i had in my last build and it was not an issue before.
I have done some searching on the net and have tried many suggestions that i have found at other sites. Most have sited that Vista itself was the problem, through it's many "wake" options. And sadly i have tested a few "wake" option with little success.
I have poured over the MOBO's manual many times and have looked into each power management option with little success either. And i did check all the jumpers as well.
I know getting a computer to shut down should be easy and my problem is trivial, but the idea that i tell the silly thing to turn itself off seems really
appealing to me.
thanks Marshmellow and Proximon for responding. I guess i will keep digging unless someone else has another idea.
