Computer won't turn off after shutdown

Hello,
3 days ago I did a clean install of a computer, of course installing latest drivers for all components.
Since then besides the TDR problem and crashes in BF3, I am experiencing a problem I can't solve.
Computer won't turn off!
It will restart but when i choose to shut it down, the screen comes up with saving settings etc, monitor turns off but pc stays on. So the only thing I can do is long press the power button.
I did some research on the matter and I found out that common problem is PSU, so today I replaced my china 500W PSU with a coolermaster 600W.
The problem persists.
I read also that it may be a GPU problem, and considering the TDR issues, I downgraded to drivers 314.22. No issues so far.

Sidenote: Computer doesn't turn off even in Safe Mode.

Any suggestions?
My mind goes to drivers since before it was working fine.

Rig:
Coolermaster Thunder 600W
Intel i5 - 2320
Asus P8H61-M LE
Kingston 2x2GB 1333MHz
Asus ENGTX550 Ti / DI

    It an asus bios bug. Happened to me on my sabertooth. Unplug the pc from the wall. Let the mb drain...clear the CMOS. Boot back up and reset the CMOS and then check for any bios updates. The pc should shut down fine before the updates.

    I also updated BIOS to latest version released in May, but after having this issue, i rolled back to the previous version of the latest.

    So, unplug, remove battery. Put battery back, (this clears all settings in BIOS), again reset settings ?

  7. my friend has this also but it's on and never shut's it off. it's a windows setting because my laptop even started doing it and had to go in and change the setting's. apparently the hidden setting's give you the option to go into sleep/hibernating when you choose to shutdown }:/ as you can guess it botherd me to as it was my laptop and my battery would either be low or dead without shutting down

    any way's this option is normally in laptops but you still have windows so the options are hiding in there some where, sorry can't give you directions how to do it, but you at least now know it's a setting's look in power options to start!
  8. high this is happening to me as well...it only started after the blackout. I don't really have much knowledge when it comes to troubleshooting pc can you please tell me how exactly I reset CMOS? any guide?
    thanks!
  9. Hello. I have the same problem in my laptop HP DV6-6167la. Can somebody tell me how you fix this problem? Thanks
  10. @Sherrie - just remove the battery.

    Just wanted to say thanks for the help, it worked for me. Now to find out what caused the bug to present itself as I don't understand what it would be!
  11. Hi,
    I had the same problem but it appeared after i updated all drivers from the manufactur (acer).
    So it shouldnt be the bios in my case? Or its a mix of driver and bios problem.

    Anyway i read that the driver "IRST_Intel (intel rapid storage technology)" could cause problems so i tried to uninstall all new drivers one by one and Rolling back to the previous driver (original by W10 installation) and when i came to uninstalling IRST_Intel driver it seem like the problem is gone. I just tried to turn off laptop and now it works.
    The actual driver atm is Standard SATA AHCI Control Unit.
  12. Hi guys, I had this happen with my pc which had a z97 sabertooth board. It wasnt an issue with the mobo or the PSU specifically, it was the PSU power cable ( the one at the back) that caused the issue. Always make sure you use the one tested with your new PSU. I had massive issues for months with this and it resulted in 6 dead mobos and about $2000 wasted. Another issue it caused was that my PSU and/or my mobo would trip out for a long time sometimes up to 8 hours so if you have any of these symptoms replace that cable.

    merceless, you have no idea how much thankful i am. I don´t simply know why this never came to my mind. I´ve been days trying to solve it from the software, tried every bios and windows configuration possible until i came to the conclusion that my PSU or motherboard was broken. It was indeed the PSU cable. Replaced it and it didn´t turn off either, so i jumped from the chair, went to the bathroom angry as fuck and heard the fan turning off. It was like hearing the god´s voice. It´s a new EVGA 600W 80+, and the cable didn´t have anything strange, but it was the problem.
    Thank you again and sorry for bad english.
