Windows 7: New Build: Restarts instead of Shuts down

That makes the most sense to me. If I can't find one to test I'll just buy a new one I guess. Thanks for your help!

Haha, thanks!

The PSU is new, but was bought off ebay, so I'm not sure the warrantee will stand. That'll teach me!

This sound like the case POWER switch is connected to the motherboard RESET connector. Use a magnifier to check for sure and for correct polarity.

surely if the power switch was attached to the reset pins it would do nothing when pressed?

both buttons are just monetary switches, and neither is different from the other. other than shape. im hammering my reset button on my rig now and it wont boot as obviously its not attached to the power pins.

The reset is a different function on the board, it momentarily cuts power and restarts immediately, at least mine does.

yeah but if the power switch was connected to the reset pins it would just turn into a reset button.

if you were to touch the 2 reset pins together when the computer is off it will do nothing. Like i said reset or power, both are just simple switches, the only difference is what we use them for.

And that wouldnt account for the fans still spinning.
