    First tech post - problems rebooting

    would any one know why my system would instead of shutting down, just reboots, even if i press the power button, XP goes to shut now, then reboots!!

    Any ideas?

    The motherboard is an AT7 MAX 2, with a XP 1700 (not over clocked) and 512mb.

    It didn't do this all the time so i think it could be software related....

    check in System properties > Advanced > Startup & Recovery that the checkbox "automatically reboot" is unchecked - you will probably find that you are getting a BSOD on shutdown for some reason - that may provide some help in troubleshooting the problem.

    I'd hazard a bet on it being a driver/device failing to shut down properly when you go to shutdown, and is throwing up the BSOD. You installed any new hardware / changed drivers recently?

    Has it done it since you built it?
