Default Computer Reboots When Clicking On "Shut Off Computer"

Hello All,

I got WIN-XP, but every time I tried to upgrade from
WIN98SE to WIN-XP, I'd get an error message stating that
the video card was incompatible with the motherboard.

However, after trying suggestions from ASUS, the
motherboard manufacturer, I tried booting the computer
from the WIN-XP CD-ROM and the upgrade "took Off."

Now, I've run into my first problem, which is when I
click on Start, Turn Off Computer, then Turn Off computer
again, WIN-XP says that it's shutting down, and the
computer looks like it's shutting off, but then I see the
BIOS version and the computer reboots or restarts.

Is there a "shutdown bug" like WIN98SE had, which I
corrected by downloading the "shutdown fix" for WIN98, or
is there some setting that I need to change somewhere?

I can't get the computer to shut down when clicking on
Turn Off Computer and the computer reboots or restarts

Thanks in advance for any help or advice that you may
