so i went ahead and ran repair my system using the win7 64bit sp1 cd and that didnt help. so after that i actually did a full install using the upgrade choice so i could keep my files, programs and settings. that took about 2 hours to run. unfortunately that didnt solve the problem either. so i used norton ghost to put back my system before i did the win7 installs as it did change some things and some drivers. so unfortunately the win7 cd effort i made didnt work.
ill wait for your reply.
ps - the way im shutting down now is im using the normal shutdown method and when the computer automatically restarts i hit f2 to go into the bios screen. once in the bios screen i hit the power button and then the computer shuts off and doesnt restart. so ill continue to shut it down this way instead of using sleep since this way actually puts my computer fully off. i have never tried to shut off my computer by holding the power button down for 5 seconds as i think kind of shutdown is only used in emergencies. if you want me to try that method just to see if it works, i can. thanks and ill wait for your reply.

Just a very long shot but try disconnecting the network cable before you shut it down or better yet, disable the Ethernet connection before shutting down. Most NICs have the capability to start up the PC if they get some special signal. Called Wake-On-LAN

then i tried to shut down the normal way after i disabled the ethernet but that didnt help as the computer shut down and started up again.
ill wait for your reply, thank you.
ps - dell is scheduled to come tomorrow morning to my home to replace the motherboard. should i allow them to do it or is it waste of time? or should i tell them to wait til wed so we can try to find a solution?

as i promised i went ahead and make a 2nd donation to Kwiaht. my first donation was for $10 and this 2nd donation was for $5, for a total of $15 donated. i wish i could afford more but i have to stay within my budget as i also donate to other charities and causes. ive attached a jpg of the 2nd donation to show you confirmation it was done.
thank you again ron, youre a kind, considerate and classy guy. happy upcoming holidays to you and your family.
ps - one final question. can i put back that msi afterburner program that puts a icon in my taskbar showing me the fan speed and temp of my video card? when i ran powercfg -energy you said it might be burning too much electricity, but im not having any wattage problems as im pulling very little wattage and have an upgraded power supply. i also know many people who use it and its fine. so please give me your opinion on this as i would like to reinstall it but wont if you think i shouldnt as i respext your opinion.

Thanks for the donation. I wasn't much help this time. Would have sworn you were going to say that it wasn't the mobo. Strangest problem I've seen in a while.

There is an entry in the registry leftover from Windows NT supposedly no longer used by Win2K times but you might see if it still works:
Value Data: (0 = default, 1 = power down)
On my Win 7 its value is 0 and it shuts down so it may just be ignored but it might be worth trying to change it to 1 just to see.
Let's look at the other winlogon values:
Copy the next line:
reg export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon %userprofile%\Desktop\winlogon.txt
Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and Run As Admin.
Right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the copied line should appear. Hit Enter.
You should have a file on your desktop called winlogon.txt. Attach it to your next reply.
There is another section in the Registry:
I'm afraid this is where Win 7 really decides what to do. I exported the key and it's about 700 KB. Very tedious to go through.
