Sony vaio vgn-c240e reboots on shutdown Tags: Sony Vaio Shutdown Laptops Last response: January 13, 2011 5:47 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share mrsray October 26, 2010 5:11:38 PM hello everyone, I have been pulling my hair out, please help This sony laptop just reboots after shut down, to the point where you can count it out 5-4-3-2-1 restart. I have tried EVERTYING every os, xp, vista, win 7, ubuntu ... shutting down reboots every time. I have gone though all the sparce BIOS settings ... pheonix r0080j4 from 12/06, no help I can't find an updated bios for this machine to try. I have disabled every piece of hardware one by one, no help the only clue I have is if I do a: shutdown /i from the command prompt, get the shutdown dialog box ... it has restart selected as the default. I have changed this to shutdown and it reverts back to restart every time. I have also gone to the intel site and got the latest chipset drivers, still no help. I am losing my mind. Any ideas would be appreciated.
