Hi all, A friend of mine has a computer that has the Intel Augsburg D915GAG motherboard, and when I turn it off the LED on the case would go off but the fans would continue to run and after about five minutes would come back on. I went into the System Properties and unchecked the Automatic Restart under System Failure in the Startup and Recovery section and it still turns back on.

I'm leaning toward an exorcism and failing that a baptism in the local river, but I'm open to other ideas.

Thanks, dc3

How are you shutting it off? Be sure to double-check the "wake on" settings in the BIOS. I've had it happen to me in the past, but not as long as 5 minutes. I know it can be faulty drivers but finding the culprit is a pain. I gave up on my wife's and just leave it on or do a hard shutdown. Got another power supply to throw in it and see if that makes a difference?

I hadn't thought of the BIOS, good call and I'll check it out. I shut the computer down using the Start> Shutdown> and Shutdown. I will use my POST card and see if there are any problems with the PSU.
