you know when you reboot your system, it's only windows that shuts down and then starts up again. this thing is actually powering off for a half a second and then powering back up again.  Like some laptops do when you reboot them. they go off completely for a few seconds and then come up again. this is like that only it's off for only a half a second.

I have changed mboards in an amd 2200 replaced cpu with 1800  same old ram same power suppy same everything.
after loading windows (and everything else)  it now will not shutdown, it will reboot.
I've changed p/s with 2 different new ones, I've changed cpu, I've changed ram, I've done a repair install.  It all started after I put in the last 27 windows updates, it may have been going on all the time, I only reboot while I was working on it.  It didn't have this problem before. I've restored to a system point,  NOTHING works.

Your help is seriously needed
thank you

probably the OS went flakey - can you install xp on another disk or partition, update it and test the issue?
