Ok now im getting CMOS Checksum errors and my clock is continuously reseting. I have a feeling its gonna be the battery on the mobo, which is weird considering its a brand new mobo. If this is the problem could this be causing the problem with not being able to shut down?

Could be...only way to tell is to fix the problem and see if shut down issue goes away.
