New Custom Built PC doesnt shut off completely

Title says it all. A new custom built pc does not want to turn off completely. This PC is just over a month old and just recently has it not been shutting off completely. I have: asus p8z77 v lk
2. intel core i5 3570k processor
3. Corsair 650W modular psu
4. Geforce GTX 670
and some other parts
Should I be worried?

  1. What do you mean by not shutting off completely? Do the fans shut off but lights don't or does all of the parts continue to run? Does the monitor not display anything or what?
  2. Does not want to turn off completely as in how ? It goes into sleep instead of shutting itself off ?
  3. I press shutdown and windows shut downs, the monitor seems to dim or go into the sleep state and everything else such as the fans and the mobo stay on
  4. If you leave it, does it shut down after a while?

    Do you have any new software installed.

    A ramdisk can cause a longer shut down delay for saving.

    As the user above recommends ensure you do not have some kind of sleep/hibernate going on(you can check these in the Windows power settings.).

    What version of Windows are you using?
  5. Im using windows 7 professional 64 bit OEM version. I do not have any new software installed and if i leave it alone, it still does not shut off. I am certain that it is not sleeping or hibernating because this issue was not present before this week(and I have not made any changes or software updates since)
  6. Could be a problem with the motherboard not getting the signal to shut off or some other component keeping the machine busy.
    Do you have other expansion cards or things connected to the PC via usb for example?

    Like a bad audio card driver could hang the shutdown. On the SW side of things you might have some process which refuses to die and thus the machine stays on even if the display gets turned off, this might be some registry problem too.

    Another problem might be bios ACPI settings.
  7. I have a set of subwoofers used as speakers plugged in, not via usb however. I have astro a50s plugged in and I have some nzxt sleeved leds plugged into the PSU. In addition to this problem, the computer restarts randomly too, especially when gaming.
  8. Random restarts can happen from overheating or a defective power supply.

    Checking the temps with something like HWmon may be a good idea.

    By any chance do you have a friend's system with a decent power supply to test.
  9. I have installed the program and everything looks right. But what should I be focusing the most on with this? And unfortunately I do not believe so
