So, I made a new build about a month ago and it i has worked flawlessly since about a week ago. Now it has this weird thing where when i go to shut it down, it doesn't fully turn off. The fans still spin and the power LED stays on. I don't get it! [:zackart98:1]. I was hoping that you guys might have an answer (and hopefully a fix too) as to what the heck actually happened to my beloved $1460 PC!!

Thanks guys!! Any answer is good for me! :) 

BTW it is running Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Has anything changed in your system lately (like adding a new device)?

I took a look at your profile to see what your rig is made of. Nice system. I would normally suspect the PSU in situations like this, but you have a pretty good one.

Is the PSU new-ish as well?

Other than the CPU, what else are you overclocking (GPU, memory)? Until stable, I would recommend reverting to stock speeds on all.

Please clarify.

I bought the PSU for the new build a well and I didn't add anything new. I didn't OC the memory or gpu, just the CPU. FYI this problem started about 2 weeks after I overclocked my CPU. I will try the stock speed thing that you suggested. Thanks COLGeek!

Okay. I just tried reverting to stock speeds however, the same thing happened. By the way, I just noted that when I'm in the bios and click save changes and reset, the bios turns the PC off just fine. The fans stop and everything.

Look in your Device Manager. Do you have any devices indicating a problem?

Nope, no devices that are throwing an error.

BTW Thanks a lot for helping me!

You are welcome.

Try resetting your BIOS back to its default config. Before booting into Windows, enter the BIOS and make sure the SATA mode is set properly (AHCI, IDE, or RAID). I assume you are in AHCI mode now.
