This is quite strange. After switching off my computer - usual way, "Shutdown" in XP, I switch off various components ie. printer, speakers etc.
For some unknown reason, switching off the speakers at the Belkin under monitor spike protector, causes the the computer to restart ( unless, of course I switch computer off first). Now has anyone any ideas as to why?
There is nothing in the Power Management in the Bios that remotely refers to "speakers" or anything similar for that matter. Soft off power button is all I have enabled.
computer. With the clues furnished by DieSse & graham√ managed to find what was causing it. The Aux 2 switch (speaker) is at the far end, next to the telephone/modem connection. If the modem is left on, and I switch the Aux 2 switch off, this causes the computer to reboot.
Funny thing, it didn't happen before, just with this new motherboard. Never mind, I will have to remember to switch everything off in sequence. ie. modem, computer then speakers.
Can't think of anything else that may be causing the problem other than the one you have already suggested. Will try removing plugs from back of "Surge Master" one by one (obviously not monitor and computer - lol) and see what happens.
