This is usually caused because one of the PCI cards attached to the system is sending a Power On message to the PC. This is usually due to a short in the PCI device, but can also be due to a short on the motherboard itself or a faulty BIOS image.

You can try updating the firmware on your motherboards BIOS, and unplugging different PCI cards to see what is causing the issue. Additionally you could try turning off ACPI in the BIOS, but this will require you to press the power button after Windows Shuts down. This also doesn't allow you to do any advanced power management things like put the pc to sleep.

WINDOWS NOT SHUTTING DOWN COMPLETELY


Hi,
You will need to enable the Advance power management in Bios and on windows..
Try to see in the bios the advance setting for APM.
Some motherboard you have to enable this.
Other its simply on windows.
After the installation of windows
Go >Right click desktop>properties>then select screen saver tab>below click power>
Then click APM tab
enable and restart
May be this can solve this issues.
Or else I would advice to change the power supply and see.
Regards

The PC is not shutting down


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.

Just installed this board and trying to run windows xp x64 setup for OS installation and when its about to install the devices wich is on only 34 mins left of the OS installation the PC just shut downs...


Try this. Press Delete right after your pc starts up and keep hitting it until you go into the BIOS setup. It should be the delete button you hit. It should say right after the screen shows up. Anyway, in the bios there should be power options and it needs to be looked at and changed. It is probably set for pc shutdown after inactivity after so many minutes. I am not sure what you should find but look for something in the power options in the BIOS. Just ask for more help on this matter only. jdeisme@yahoo.com

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


Hi,

This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the aumha.org site.

Try to reset your BIOS by removing the button cell located at your motherboard and put it back. Check the SATA connector of your hard drive and make sure it fits right. Boot the machine and set-up to "boot from CR-ROM". And install new WINDOWS XP.

Auto power off problem


you have either got the power and reset connectors the wrong way round fro the front panel, or you have not enabled ACPI in the advanced cmos settings to allow the board to support shutdown by Windows. Also check in the power options in control panel and ensure that when you click turn off the pc is instructed to power down.
