Well my power supply wasn't working in my computer. I did what I had to a replaced it. It's the same that I had, 500 watt. For some reason when I tell it to shut down it turns off for about 6 seconds, then turns right back on. I don't even touch it or nothing, it just turns on. Does anyone know how to fix this annoying problem?

Can't say I've ever heard of a problem quite like that before. As odd as its going to sound are you sure its your PSU causing the problems and not something else?

Check your CMOS jumper pins (if you have them) to see if they're seated properly. On quite a few newer motherboards, resetting the CMOS while the power is on can turn on the PC. If there is something completing the connection that shouldn't be, it would be there. Otherwise it sounds like there's a faulty switch in the new PSU. I'm not sure what issues you had with the old one, but if you can still boot with it and it didn't have this issue, swap it out and see if it still does it. (for testing purposes only, I realize you had a reason to replace it)

This is the strangest thing I think ever happened to my computer... I fixed it by turning the power supply box to off and then pressing the button to start the computer. The computer actually started for a couple seconds, then it turned off. I switched back my power supply and now I can shut down without it restarting. Very odd...
