  User-FCAB1FAF-5F56-42E6-A2FC5454DEE486F8 17:09 23 Jan 2010

I have a strange one when I press reset pc goes off like aas if i shut down pc...

I just done a clean install of pc with win 7 (64bit)

I cant find any settings re buttons on case yet I knew how to in XP and Vista lol...

Plus why would it change I not even touch any settings only over clock pc. Which works fine.



Why do we use pc`s lol they stress us and I hate Windows all the versions well they ever get it right ( see my other thread messenger wont install lol

The reset button is hard wired to your motherboard. There are no sofware settings for it as far as i'm aware.

Does your power button reboot the PC?

I haven't got Windows 7 yet, but I dare say that if you go to Power Options, in the Control Panel, you'll find a section headed: "Choose what the power button does". That determines what the PC does when you press the power button. Change it to your preferred option.

That should only affect the power button, not the reset. I'm thinking their crosswired on the motherboard, but it's only a guess.

Yes, OTT_B, you're right. I didn't read the OP properly!

"I hate Windows all the versions"

Why use it then - try Linux (it's free!). Linux Mint is very good indeed.

I dont think you can "cross wires" on a reset, its DC current, either it will work or it wont work!

Go into the BIOS and check to see what the settings are when you hit the reset button!

I mean I think he's swapped the main switch for the reset switch connections
