Unhappy Windows XP wont shut down

I just finished building a new computer and most things seem to work. The exception is that when i use the shut down option the machine shuts down and then restarts. I must push the button in the front of the case to shut the power off to the computer. It is a xion case and it is an ecs motherboard with amd 3500 processor. Please any help would be greatly appreciated.
