I have just upgraded my rig and now have a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R with the latest Bios version 6gb of OCZ 1333mhz Triple Channel RAM and have installed Windows 7 x64 and the problem I am having is that when it comes to shutting down, my monitor switches off but my machine stays running? And the only way I can switch off completely is to press and hold the power button, and even after that the number lock key and my mouse stay lit up?!
Can anybody please shed some light on what my problem is please, as I now have my pc the way I want it and this is really frustrating!!!
So any comments/advice as to what I can do would be a much appreciated, I have been told that maybe rolling back the Bios to an earlier version would probably do the trick, but which one? As I have also been told that this is potentially a dangerous thing to do, and having only just upgraded obviously the last thing I want to do is "kill" my new mobo!!
I might have the same problem, it only shuts down some of the time. Other times I have to shut it down manually, it just stays at the windows is shutting down screen. So far I haven't been able to isolate what the cause of it stalling is.
It's not the PSU or the graphics card as I've had different ones in my rig and it still hangs on shutdown. It doesn't seem to be affecting anything, windows doesn't complain about not shutting down properly on booting up again, but it's really annoying.
Also if I let it hang long enough while trying to shutdown, it blue screens to a POWER_STATE_FAILURE error screen. I can't seem to figure out what that means.
