computer start up

  Brucknerian 10:56 13 Aug 2007

My computer has developed a slight problem. When I close down it automatically restarts and the only way I can get it to go off is switch off the power. I am running Windows XP Home.

The only recent change to the system was I added a new sound card.

I also tried a system restore but the problem still remains.

Any ideas how to fix this?

click here and look at 'Reboot instead of shutdown'.

Googled. click here Hi you could try .My Computer,Right click C Drive.Properties.Tools. Check Now.And tick both boxes,You will probably have to re-boot before it starts,It takes about an hour so time to do a bit of shopping or whatever.Its worth a try if nothing else works.
