Computer Refuses to Shut Down

By esummers ·
I feel like I should be able to solve this myself, but it is driving me crazy. Since I installed a new Athlon (classic), Shuttle Motherboard, and 300w power supply in my existing box, I can choose Shut Down from Windows, but the computer will only restart. I am forced to use the power supply On/Off switch. What am I forgetting?

Check the power supply reset switch to make sure that propersettings for power is set to match voltage.
Check the CPU to make sure it is not heating up and the fan is properly working.
Also check the powe rmanagement in Control Panel,disable it and see if this clears up your problem
Check the memory and video cards,to make sure they are seated properly.

Run MSCONFIG and click on Advanced. Before doing anything, remember to create backup copy before tweaking at Advanced.

Check your motherboard manufacturer for any updates and update your bios.
There may not be anything you can do about it.
This is a common problem on HP machines running windows NT
Hp provides a fix for their computers.
