Motherboard D1451 doesn't switch off but restarts

Postby itworks » Sun Dec 14, 2008 0:14

I have seen the question I am now posing elsewhere on this forum and it remains unanswered.

The PC doesn't switch off when it shuts down as it used to - instead it restarts again.
It has recently had XP service pack 3 applied - is this anything to do with it or is there a setting in the BIOS that should be changed ?

Thanks for any help.
Alan

Answering my own question - but it may help someone else in the future :)

In BIOS settings, I changed within the Power settings:
- Disabled APM interface
- Within Power On/Off changed the Power-On Source to ACPI controlled rather than BIOS
- Within Power Failure Recovery changed to Always Off

System now shutting down properly.
