I wonder if anyone can help me with this.When i shut my pc down, it will not shut off completely.Instead of switching off, the fan on the psu stays on, and will only turn off at the wall outlet.The very same thing happens when i first turn the pc on.The fan starts as soon as it's plugged in.I've tried every configuration inside the pc, as in connecting the psu to the mother board etc, but nothing works.Could the mother board be faulty?I've tried a different psu from an old pc, and the very same thing happens again.The pc works fine once it's on, but i know this should'nt really be happening.Any ideas?
sorry link to microsoft site didnt work...not sure why?
Go to the Microsoft website/ support (on left side of screen /self support select a product solution/ XP/ under 'All topics' scroll down to 'Startup and Shut Down'/ Shutdown.....and have a look at whats there.
Have a look in BIOS setup in the power management section for a setting like or similar to "State after power failure" if this is set to " On or Enabled " your PC will power up as soon as it is plugged in
Also check in the control panel power Power Options on the Advanced Tab the power button option should be set on Shut Down
