    When I shutdown my computer, it actually only restarts it. What is going on here? (Note: Restarting my computer by pressing the actual restart button is still restarting the computer)

    A restart on power shutdown indicates that a serious error is occuring in the shutdown process.

    Disable the auto restart and you should see a blue screen error. Write it down and post it back here for help on fixing it.

    Usually its software related.

    Control Panel - System - Advanced - Startup and Recovery/Settings - untick "Automatically restart"

    You will need to hold the power switch in for 5 seconds to power down at the blue screen.
