See page 45 of your manual. Also, disable all wake on event options.

i'm on page 45 and what exactly to do? There is something ACPI HPET TABLE, turn it on?

Can you tell me what to exactly do ex. "open this page and check this...."

Thanks for help, maybe i will fix it ... or maybe something wrong with my tower-case?

First test:
ACPI HPET TABLE - ENABLE

Boot, see if problem exists

If Yes, make your BIOS look like this:

Restore on AC/Power Loss [Disabled]
Ring-In Power On [Disabled]
PCI Devices Power On [Disabled]
PS / 2 Keyboard Power On [Disabled]
RTC Alarm Power On [Disabled]
ACPI HPET Table [Disabled]

Your case is probably fine.

Only if you "get with the program" and post your specs properly.

Win 7 Ultimate
 
 

I have spent hours trying to solve this having just upgrades to 64bit Win 7 trailing forums for a solution.

My machine ran Vista 64-bit without any problems, but as soon as I installed Win 7 64-bit every shut down became a reboot.

In the end I found installing all the latest 64 bit drivers for the motherboard solved the problem. This was the case for my Gigabyte N650LI-DS4. Find your motherboard driver disk and install it in. In my case it was the Nvida and Ethernet that worked fine without a drive, but when installed help stop the reboot issue.

Make sure you go to power options and MAKE SURE THE POWER BUTTON IS SET TO SHUTDOWN.
You also can try this.
desktop -> blank space -> right click -> new -> shortcut ->
enter} SHUTDOWN.exe -s -t 000 -> next -> name it Shutdown ->
exit there will be a new shortcut on your desktop called shutdown.
double click it and it should instantly go into shutdown. OFF not restart
If you like it then open change icon to your choice I tell ppl the RED STOP SIGN is neet. that is what it means

Windows 7 (64-bit)
 
 

Hi hazelden,

Are you using Gigabyte N650SLI-DS4? I am having this motherboard and also face the same problem where Windows 7 (64-bit) won't shut down, instead restarts itself. Do you know where can I get the latest 64-bit drivers (at least those that you mentioned). I tried looking up the Gigabyte website (GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-N650SLI-DS4 (rev. 1.0)), however they don't seem to have those drivers you mentioned for Windows 7 64-bit.

Dave, go to 3dguru.com. Here is download link for update nForce Gigabyte N650sli-DS4 Drivers. I have same motherboard, same issue as well. My computer would always restart on shutdown. Installing all of these drivers fixed my problem. http://downloads.guru3d.com/nForce-15.45-Vista-|--Windows-7-%2832|64-bit%29-WHQL-download-2356.html

Resolved "windows restart after shut down"

Had this problem on a Dell XPS M1330 running Vista and then upgrading to Win 7 64bit. Try flashing or updating BIOS first. Then unplug the CMOS battery to reset BIOS. Remember CMOS holds the settings in BIOS. So when no power to CMOS, BIOS settings get wiped out. Reset to default settings in BIOS after re-plugging or replacing battery. This fixed my restart issue after just unplugging and replugging CMOS battery! I tried all kinds of fixes and this was the only one that worked! Not all are software related issues. Any hardware changes can cause this problem like adding a IDE drive to a SATA board. Make the drive a slave changing it from cable select for example. Hope this is useful to someone.
