I've just got a new computer. I'm running on an Asus Rampage II extreme ROG with a core i7 920, and 12 GB of corsair platinum ram. The system is run by a corsair 850HW.
The computer is working fine! I'm not too good with the overclocking yet, but I'm learning
However, when in Windows (7), and I decide to turn off the computer through the start menu, it will do just so. The fans will stop and the computer shut down, but only to power back on a few seconds later as if it was a reboot.
I have the latest BIOS update.
I've read through the manuals power options etc., but to no avail.
Any clues or experiences?
ps: not sure this was the right place to post this topic, but it made the most sense to me.
I don't know if this will help you find a solution, but let's try. I had that same problem on a couple of machines with earlier Windows. There were articles about how to find the source and fix it in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Search it with keywords like "Shut-Down Failure" or "Re-start". In the past I found several articles, some dedicated to specific version of Windows.
You can reprogram the turn off button on the start menu to do something else such as hibernate or restart etc. To check the settings look in Control panel, power settings advanced (I think, I haven’t got Windows 7 running at the moment)
