Hi
I am running a pc with an AMD 64 bit processor, 512 mb DDR 400 ram, and a 64mb graphics card. When I shut down my pc, it closes everything down till theres nothing running, but then it just restarts unless I push the off button. Is there anyway I can either get it to turn off itself, or else stop when its shutdown so I can turn it off manually.

Cheers

Thanks for the suggestion. After reading the page i have determined that I have a power down problem, but nothing on the page worked to fix it. My pc still powers down and then automatically powers up again. It's as if the power stay off

I had fixed a PC with a problem like that once.
I think it ended up being the scanner, as soon as I unplugged it
it was ok, some incompatability with the m/b I think?
