Windows 7: Lenovo K220 IdeaCenter restarts on shutdown

Lenovo K220 IdeaCenter restarts on shutdown

I have just installed Win7 64bit and nothing else. Not connected to the internet yet. The machine acts as it should when I click Shutdown however, once the fans stop spinning it restarts on its own.

I went online from another computer and updated all drivers... no fix though.

I could not see an update for the BIOS from 9/29/2008. Is there one available? If anyone can find a URL I would try that.

Is there a setting in the BIOS that should be changed to prevent this from happening? I couldn't find it although, I changed any settings that suggested restart on failure or error.


Further, the Machine Type and Model as well as the Serial Number are shown as INVALID in the BIOS. I know that there is a utility to change this but don't know where I would find that.

Thanks for any assistance

Restarts after Shutdown
My Computer actually was running fine. I went to Shut it down and it sometimes just restarts instead of fully shutting down. I installed it from a bootable flash drive and have had no other problems with the operating system so far. How can i fix this ? Its really annoying.
