Hey guys, another prob with win98, i'm workin one day and go to turn off comp, it restarts, did cold boot got the same affect. When i press shutdown it restarts. This is weird enough but then i reformated my windows drive and reinstalled from scratch, did the same thing. What else can i do with this problem??? and don't suggest don't shut your comp off...lol Thanks guys.

Did you add anything new to the computer? Have you opened your case to check and make sure everything is connected correctly?

If you email me, add a "B" in front of "ubblybabs" or the email will bounce! <---------> "Be nice to your kids. They choose your nursing home."
