OK, i replied. Most of you all know what's coming up. . . Yes, it didn't completely go away. The problem is still around.

And please, don't give me stuff about poltergeists and exorcisms. I take this problem very seriously, and would prefer serious replies.

I have a good amount of knowledge about my computer, but I know jack about power supplies. The crap just seems to turn on for no apparent reason. Also, my network card is connected to nothing, could it still cause trouble?

Any more ideas?

ok i have assembled/sold something close to 1500 systems until now and never had any problems of such a manner and neither any of my customers. why?
i always use a surge protector and i give one free with any system i sell because the number one reason why a computer gets wasted is because of crazy power surges and they're not always caused by power plugs.

those people who have cable modems connected to their systems experience power surges and often burn your cpu/mobo!

so if you already have a GOOD surge protector and don't have a cable internet or cable TV on your computer, and have checked the wake on LAN options on both your motherboard bios and/or your modem off,

i suggest you call an EXORCIST to fix your problem for you!!!

peace!

hrmm..

Try unplugging your whole system including your power plug on your pc..if it turns itself on then I think you have paranormal spirits trying to use your internet connection..Try calling the Ghostbusters as everyone else has stated..

I've worked on tons of Comps and never heard this one..

Goodluck

Very stange indeed. I already have a surge protector and disabled all wake options I can think of. I also don't have broadband either. So. . . I really doubt there's ghosts in my room. I want to thank you guys again for a serious reply.

oh yeah check your power supply cable, or power connection. could be loose, or replace it all together.

My cat likes to poke the power button on my computer with her nose, and eject floppys and CD's and such. If you've got a pet, that could be the problem. I cant tell you how many times ive come home and started freaking out when i couldnt turn on my PC, then realized the damn thing stepped on my Surge Protector main switch.
