I been having problems with my server, I have ECS KN1 Extreme motherboard based on nForce4 Ultra chip.

I can't pin point the problem, its been driving me nuts.

Computer simply won't restart, when i select restart, it just shuts down.

affects Win 2k3, Vista, and tried one linux distro, same issue.

even when i go to bios, and save settings, the PC just shuts down, it should restart.

The first thing to focus on is the PSU. Try and get a test unit and swap it out to see if you still can't reboot. If you make changes to the BIOS settings and restart do the new settings stick?
