Hi All :thumbsup:

I have a huge problem with my computer...It switches itself on after a normal shutdown. I have already check the powersupply...and that is not the problem.

I have checked bios settings, also checked the voltage input to the motherboard.

PC Specs...Mother Board is a MSI 845
MEMory is 256MB KINGMAX
CPU = CELRON 2.4
PSU 350W

I bought it from the following place Winagain Computers www.winagain.95mb.com
I don't know if anyone can help, but please

Very Confused

it could be a virus... do you have current antivirus protection
on the machine? if not, there is a free antivirus package available
from Grisoft, called AVG

AVG Free Edition

while it is not the best package, it is way better than NO or
OUTDATED (which is worse, because it gives you a false
sense of security) antivirus software on your machine.

be sure to have it scheduled to update and scan your machine
regularly... outdated antivirus software CANNOT stop the
latest and greatest in the virus world...

good luck!

What is your operating system?

It switches itself on after a normal shutdown.

Do you mean immediately? Every time?

I'd be looking at the BIOS settings, very closely, under 'Power Control' or 'ACPI' or similar, for "wake on LAN" or "wake on Modem" or possibly "wake on mouse". Keep your motherboard manual handy for some sort of explanation of the terms if you don't know them.
