Windows 7: My computer boots itself 5 seconds after being shut down?????

My computer boots itself 5 seconds after being shut down?????

Well today I was cleaning around my computer area and well was dusting where my computer sits and I pushed it too far out and it fell and hit the ground. It was on too and the monitor lost signal even though the VGA cord was plugged in...Since I couldn't properly shut it off by going to start etc etc I just held the power button till it shutdown..I thought my video card got loose so I hit the kill switch unplugged it and checked everything,but it was all fine. When I plugged it back in,it turned on and well kinda lagged on start up,more than usual...I figured everything was fine until I shut it down and after it was off like 5 seconds later it turned on by itself?? I checked my motherboard and components for any damage or cracks but couldn't find anything.


Now this I do not mind,i'm just afraid that it'll cause damage to my PC or cause my motherboard to fry or something because now in order to keep it off from starting byitself I have to shutdown then quickly hit the kill switch,sometimes I dont do it fast enough and the computer slightly turns on,too fast to stop me from switching it off. Also when I hit the killswitch to off and then switch it back on.the pc refuses to start itself until I push the ON button and shutdown again..I need help,what can I do to fix this issue?

I don't think its my power supply,everything starts and works fine. I'm still waiting to see how it effects my PC performance.

Sounds like you either damaged your power switch or motherboard, just because you don't see physical damage doesn't mean it is there.

Dude, you got a reply, and then just post negatively about it, I was going to walk you through the steps, but since you don't want help, I will end watching this thread.
