Problem with shutting down my Intel D865GBF based PC
Dear Fixya experts,
I have a problem when I want to shut down my pc, it performs a restart and I have to shut it down with the on/off swicth.
Have you encountered a similar problem? I would be happy if you can help me fix this problem.
I was able to solve this problem( with others..) by formatting the HD but now I want to sovle this problem as my XP is rather stable.

The processor is too weak - get at least an i5, best would be a quad core i7; the hard drive will be filled faster than you thing - bigger is always better; get some faster memories - at least 1666 MHz, 4 GB is bare minimum, get a 64bit OS and 8 GB for real performance; the power source is at the limit - for best result get one of 600W; as for the video card the best for photoshop is Nvidia Quadro CX, even ATI Fire will be better than any gaming card.
It could ofcourse be a virus, so I'd recommend a system restore back to before that happened. If that doesn't help load a backup or do a clean install.
Could also be the power connector on your motherboard is shorting with the reset connector (they're right next to each other) Maybe you'd check that first, before the clean install. Don't know if that mobo has a reset button though. They're usually in the right bottom corner of the mobo, together with all the other front panel connectors. Maybe you could insulate the power and reset buttons?
Else you could always buy socket with an off/off switch, and connect the PC to that. Just shutting it down and than turning off the socket when the reboot starts won't hurt the PC.
i BELIEVE FOR A DESK TOP.
mAKE SURE YOU SHUT YOUR SYSTEM DOWN.REMOVE THE TOWER CASING THEN REMOVE THE OLD LAN CARD IF ANY
THEN CAREFULLY BUT FIRMLY PLACE YOUR NRW LAN CARD IN THE SLOT.
THERE SHOULD BE TWO DIFFERENT SIZE SLOTS ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD FOR LAN .
SO JUST CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOUR CONNECTION MATCHES.
tHEN CLOSE IT UP AND RESTART SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY INSTALL YOUR DRIVERS.
