Power still on after Windows Shutdown

  feederweb 09:37 20 Jun 2003

I have just put an extra case fan in my system and now it wont power down properly after Windows XP has closed down, the processor fan, case fan, and power supply all remain on. The board is a 6390 v2 running a XP2600+ Athlon. Anyone any ideas ? (unplugging the fan I added doesnt help)

Check that the Enable Advanced Power Management Support is checked in Control Panel\Power Options\APM.

That should shut the system down.

Your problem can be a lot to do with the design of your motherboard
