Hi Steve,
It's not a restart per say.

It's when I intentionally shut the computer down and it should go off, it does,
then restarts, every time.

I'll check the bios next time I start up. And I already shut the one off in my
computer properties.

Thanks,

| In the BIOS there is a setting under power restart ,
|  I didn't reboot to see it exactly what it said.
| But I remember it would affect it only if the power went out it would return
| it to what ever setting you chose.
| I have always set it to stay off, in the event I wasn't around,
| I don't want it rebooting if the power company is having problems,
| The most typical problem which causes this behavior is a bad video card
| driver.
| I would look at downloading the latest driver for your particular video
| card.
| If that doesn't you might try look at the CPU voltage.
| The result is the higher the voltage, the less frequently the restart
| occurs.
| I has also seen this in faulty motherboards.
| Also check this out , right click my computer and under the advanced tab
| check startup and recovery.
