Computer not shutting down

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey all!

Sadly, I am having an issue with my computer basically as the title states, it is not shutting down properly. The following happens:

I hit shutdown on Windows, and Windows start shutting down. Then at about the time it would normally power off(screen goes black) the LED's on my case do power off, but all the fans keep spinning. I then have to hit reset to make it boot up again.

Now up until a few days ago I had some weird problems with my GPU as well. Driver kept crashing and at some point I wouldn't get trough boot anymore(one long beep, 3 short - VGA test failed) so I took out the GPU, cleaned pci-e slot with compressed air and cleaned the pci-e connection thingy on the gpu. After that those problems disappeared, but I started having the ones I wrote above. Now I am pretty sure that I did not brick anything inside, but you never know for sure.

I am going to format/reinstall windows sometime soon(annually cleanup), but I doubt that will fix anything since this clearly isn't a windows error (is it?).

Thank you all in advance and I hope we can find a solution for this

it could be a driver error, start in safe mode and maybe reinstall GPU drivers

With a 570?

Why oh why would you chance that wonderful card on a generic PSU....

Go buy a decent PSU. Probably fix all your issues...

Well I certainly didn't read slow enough...

If I were in your shoes I'd start by replacing the video card, then RAM, then test the PSU.

The PSU would be my first guess since it doesn't seem to power down properly, but considering the rest of your story..; Try to rule out the GPU first, do you have some other GPU lying around? And if that doesn't fix it you could swap out your PSU with that 400W crap one you have, depending on the other GPU it may be relatively safe to test your system with it.
