Computer restarts or starts on its own

By Jaroden

  1. My compter restarts itself after what seems to be an hour. I shut off my computer and it turned on by itself. If i am on the computer right before it restarts it sounds like it powers up. Almost like reaving an engine in a car. I unpluged the internet and it still restarts itself. The only way to stop it from restarting or starting if it is off is unplug the power. I placed another fan in it thinking it might be overheating before i found out it would start itself as well.

    Just in case .... does your Computer's Bios has Wake Up on Alarm / Wake Up on Lan or similar feature(s)? If so disable these.
