Shutdown issue

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Jack of Trades, Aug 27, 2005.

  1. I have a Compaq Presario 5695 which I just installed WinXP on. The PC
    will not shutdown. When I attemp to shut it down, it simply reboots. I
    have enabled and disabled APM several times but nothing seems to help.
    As soon as I plug up (power cord) the PC, it comes on. The switch on the
    front of the PC seems to do nothing. I previously had WIN98 on this
    machine and had the same problem.

    Please help,

    Thanks so much,

    Ted

    Just a possibility the switch is jammed or shorted...
    unplug it from the mobo and see if the machine shuts off
