Question about ASUS P5QL-E Motherboard, LGA775, Intel P43 + ICH10R, Dual DDR2, PCIe x16, SATAII, RAID, eSATA, Gigab
I just installed a new motherboard in my computer and installed service pack 3 aswell but when i go to shut down the computer hitting the turn off but it closes down and the few seconds later it starts up again i never had this problem before the new motherboard the motherboard is a ASUS P5QL SE
Did you install the drivers for the motherboard already? If so check the connections from the power switch to the board which all should be on the bottom right of your mobo. I switched a + and - one time and it went into a infinite look of turning on and off = / Beyond that ASUS Customer support sucks and I would just try to RMA it and start over.

Tips for a great answer:
First you might need to have service pack 3
XP Service pack 3
a slight overhaul of your computer
second clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your CPU central processing unit making sure there is no MOISTURE in the airline
as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive make sure they have secure dust free connections
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will automatically scan for and attempt to repair bad sectors and fix any corrupt files this will schedule to happen on restart
another way of running the chkdsk utility
click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start should schedule this task when restart
you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
you have to keep a computer very clean & free of dust and give it regular maintenance
also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is 100% totally free to use
and you might need to uninstall some unnecessary programs
right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running
also in processes see whats ticking over
do have any tune up programs installed on your computer
hope this helps
