Hi, i've had a problem with my computer about when i shutdown the comp via start>shutdown etc, the computer shutsdown then after a couple of seconds it restarts again. Took all the peripferals out and found its the keyboard causing the problem. its a 'Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000' with a USB connection. Problem only started about 4 months ago and have never had this problem before then.

Did some research and saw that there is something in the registry that causes the computer to start if there is any activity with that relating peripheral. But i dunno about that sort of thing so i didnt wanna muck about with it.

Any help with be greatly appreciated :)

Check the Device Manager for errors or bluescreens. Try reinstalling the drivers and software for the keyboard after uninstalling from the Device Manager.

(sorry about the short post - you're a techie so you should know what I'm talking about. :) )

Hey Admiral, thanks for the suggestion. It seems to have gone back to normal (for now). I'll keep my eyes on it though because it seemed Ok a while ago, for a couple of days, so it may still be something else.

Thanks for the help :)
