My computer continues to shutdown, then turn back on after 4 seconds. It seems to be the auto power up after shutdown setting in the BIOS menu, but no matter how many times I go there to makes sure it is turned "off", it doesn't seem to take. It is really annoying turning it off using the power button everytime and I am getting concerned about damaging my computer by continuing to do so. Please help! I dont klnow if this info is necassary but I am using Windows XP, Intel dual core 1.8ghz processor, NVIDIA 7900 GS graphics card, 2g RAM, and I can get the motherboard info if I need it.

Yes, I am saving the changes. This is a brand new motherboard. Is there a chance there is a damaged part?

Have you tried another motherboard battery? The parts will sit on shelves for a time before they're shipped to you - and I've had bad batteries very early on with some mobo's.

Hi, I probably have your same problem but to solve it, I just open the case and I use a compressor to clear off the dust from all the fans, video-card and ram. After this I get my PC working as usual untill about 2-3weeks time where I would have to repeat this stage again. It is a bit irritating but I cannot do anything about except to throw the PC away (which I would never do).
