I have built pcs in the past, no issues. For some odd reason, I now am having a bit of an issue with a new build.
Have an Epox socket939 board, athlon 64 cpu, new Antec 380 power supply. OS is Win XP MCE. Installed fine, runs fine. Boots without issue.
Windows shuts off. The motherboard and powersupply do not, unless I hit the switch at the back of the PC. having to do that all the time is a PITA.
the motherboard people told me to check connections, etc etc. checked them all. bios is the latest and greatest, the connections are all exactly as they should be according to the manuals. I can restart the PC no problem. but if I shutdown from windows or from the power button, the screen goes black and windows is off, but the motherboard and psu are still on. and then no power button or reset on the front works at all.
I have tried almost everything I can think of, and right now I am beginning to suspect a bad board.....any ideas??
