This problem started a few weeks ago. However, before this problem hit, I noticed that both the light and fan in my power supply would stay on even after the system was shut down. I didn't think much of it because everything still worked fine.
Then the problem hit. When I went to shut down my computer one night, windows would shut down, but then the system would restart instead of powering down. I took the quick fix of just switching off the power supply so that I could just get some sleep. The next morning, when I turned the power supply on, the system restarted three times before loading windows. When I finally got into windows, I had no internet access and the date was set as Jan 2, 2002. I managed to resolve this problem by replacing my CMOS battery and settign the date in BIOS. However, the system will still not power down when I try to shut it down. It just restarts. I've glanced through all the settings in BIOS and nothing seems out of place, but I honestly have no idea.
Any help would be appreciated.
