Sounds like a shutdown / power management problem.

If you have an ATX supply, make sure that power management is enabled in BIOS settings.
Check your ACPI configuration if the motherboard has ACPI. (also in BIOS settings)

Depending on your operating system, there are numerous potential answers.

Check out the shutdown trouble shooting guides posted at www.aumha.org

Hi

It sounds like a shutdown issue. If you have windows 98, there are patches available on microsoft's website to download. Or run the windows update which finds the updates easier.

Good luck!!!

Hi,

Not sure of your OS, but if WindowsXP and if you have installed Roxio's EasyCD Creator software, then you need to apply the patch that is available on their website.

In fact you need to carefully follow their instructions for installation.Roxio's drivers have been attributed as the single biggest cause of shutdown problems with XP.

Cheers,
Tim.

Theres a small chance it may be corrupted video drivers. Try loading standard VGA drivers for the videocard and restarting (may not work the first restart so try again after the standard drivers have loaded) - I have had that work before - next stepafter that is to track down some updated drivers for you display adapter or even try another video card.
