hello everyone,

I have been pulling my hair out, please help

This sony laptop just reboots after shut down, to the point where you can count it out 5-4-3-2-1 restart.

I have tried EVERTYING

every os, xp, vista, win 7, ubuntu ... shutting down reboots every time.

I have gone though all the sparce BIOS settings ...
pheonix r0080j4 from 12/06, no help

I can't find an updated bios for this machine to try.

I have disabled every piece of hardware one by one, no help

the only clue I have is if I do a:
shutdown /i from the command prompt, get the shutdown dialog box ...

it has restart selected as the default.
I have changed this to shutdown and it reverts back to restart every time.

I have also gone to the intel site and got the latest chipset drivers, still no help.

I am losing my mind. :cry:

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
