Q: My computer wont shut down and will turn on randomly!

If I shut down the computer it will restart. I bypass this buy turning off the switch on the power supply. now when I want to turn it on… I turn on the power supply switch, press the on button and wait, it will take 5-25 minutes and my computer will turn on!
this is driving me crazy, and help will be appreciated.

thanks,

    This might be caused by a short with the power switch or possibly an issue with the power supply or motherboard.

    If the computer is still under any kind of warranty support you should talk to the manufacturer, otherwise consider taking the computer to a local repair shop for service.
