Problems with new build starting and stopping over and over

I just finished a new build a couple days ago.  At first everything was ok. Thinking back I think the trouble started when I downloaded some updates.  I also was not able to put system to sleep...kept starting back up.  While reading the manuel I thought it said to change setting in bios from ide to sata on the controller.  After that I started having problems getting back to windows.  It finally did a system restore and started up.  Next time I shut down the windows updates started again and on start up I had same problem.  Finally got back into windows after setting bios to fail safe startup.  I tried to do a repair with my windows7 disk, but it said something about a driver for scanner that needed to be updated first.  To be able to start  up, I put the jumper on the CMOS pin after unplugging and pressing power button.  I disconnected the scanner before starting up, but got same message when tryig a repair.  Turned off again was not able to get anything but start up and off over and over.  That was last night so I removed the battery and put jumper on CMOS reset.  I have not tried to start up yet.
