PC turns it self on immediately after shutting down

Interesting and annoying problem that I haven’t ever seen before and I could really use some help

 

I recently upgraded my mobo, power supply and AIO. After it booted properly I went to shut it down and immediately when it did the pc turned itself back on again. Moments before shutting off the fans ramped up. 
 

I have updated the bios, and I’ve needed around with the limited power settings in it. I’ve also messed around with the windows power settings and eventually did a fresh install. But the problem is still present. I have even took the ram sticks out and replaced them in the slots to make sure it wasn’t them. 

 

My specs are:

intel 8700k

Gigabyte aorus 390 pro wifi (upgraded from a gigabyte Z370 HD3)

32 gb 3200 ram (gskill and PNY)

Evga 2080 super 

boot drive is a 1TB sn750 

Z63 Kraken AIO (upgraded from an older Corsair AIO)

850 watt Powerspec (upgraded from a 1000watt off brand psu)

 

any help you all can give would be much appreciated

I also had this problem a while back. I'm not sure what causes this but I replaced the motherboard and that fixed it,

Oh here’s an update. The pc will stay shut down if and only if I hold the power button to force a shutdown.

reseat your power supply connection to the motherboard.

Disconnect it, inspect the pins on both sides for damage or foreign material that might be causing an improper connection.

Reconnect it and test. (Be sure to unplug the power supply from the wall first)

 

Also, you might try booting into safe mode and shutting down from there. If it works it could point to a software cause, which is possible.

 

It might also be worth it to reseat the CPU, as well as removing any other peripherals other than keyboard, mouse and monitor.

No usb devices of any kind or anything else plugged into it.

 

And if you have been in the bios messing with power settings, i would restore defaults for testing purposes.

Hey all. 
 

so I took everything out and went from there. The solution? Clearing the CMOS. 
 

im kicking myself because I tried early last night to pull the battery, and it was giving me trouble so I moved on. Then stayed up for several more hours troubleshooting. 
 

thanks all for the help

Glad you fixed it.

Those battery's can be a pain to get out. Fixed is fixed, good job on figuring it out and happy gaming.
