Default Re: Computer Turns back on! On its OWN!

I don't think that its a software issue lol, you reformatted it, so that rules out the possibility of software problems ... its probably something with your hardware problem ...
Best thing i could think of is the BIOS, because it is still technically active even after the computer is shut down ...

I had this and it turned out to be a faulty switch on my PSU. Have a look at it and see if its loose or anything.
