Z77 Pro 3-Fans/DVD Drive Stay On After Shut Down

Last response: in Motherboards

I recently built up my first system in awhile and I am getting a couple of weird issues.

I am running

ASRock Z77 Pro 3
MSI Radeon 6850
Antec HCG 520M PSU
Antec Three Hundred Two Case
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

When I select shut down in windows the system shuts down, however the case led stays on and the case fans keep blowing. The dvd drive will also open if I press the button. Furthermore when pressing the case power button the system will not turn on. Instead I need to hold it for ten seconds or flip the psu switch on the back to shut things down.

I have checked the power button properties in the start menu and it is set to shut down.

Any help would be great.

Check your front panel connections for errors!

Did it and still have the problem. The only way that I can actually shut everything down is by flipping the psu switch or by holding down the case power button for ten seconds.

I also tried to restart windows in safe mode. When I did this and shut down, I got held up with a freeze on the shutdown screen. I was able to replicate this a second time as well.

I will also add in that when I do a restart from Windows at one point the case leds and fans will shut off before restarting. Could this have to do with a bios setting or something?

I do not thing there is a BIOS setting but you might have a board with a problem.
