Default NF7-M wont shut down

I have an NF7-M that will not shut down. When I try and shut down it just reboots. I have tried disconnecting the powerbutton same problem.

I have held down the powerbutton to where the PC shuts off, did the test again and the PC kept power cycling while the button was depressed.

OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
Processor x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 1 AuthenticAMD ~1730 Mhz (AMD 1700+XP)
Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "5.1.2600.1106 (xpsp1.020828-1920)"
Total Physical Memory 512.00 MB
Bios version 25
Onboard Nvidia gf4. Using 32mb of system ram.

actually this is a diff PC, same board.
Not actually mine, but I was oh so lucky to get the problem call.

Will check the green light thing this evening, when I go back over there.

it happens regardless if the front panel is connected or not. It did work fine for like the first 3 mos of operation, now, it has been doing it for 10 or so mos.

the green light does go out, but for just a moment as the PC cycles power the light comes back on. the other light stays on all the time. Powersupply is 350w.

I have noticed that running winbond hardware Doctor v2.7 It says that the vsb is low. 4.29v.
