Computer won't turn off!?!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just recently, my computer won't shut off. I go to shut it down normally, screen goes black, looks like it's turning off, but the tower stays on..fans and everything. I can even open up the DVD drive lol?

I have to unplug the PSU now when I shut it off or it'll stay on. Suggestions that can fix or an explanation to why it's doing this?

Solved. It was a bad PSU cable. Storm fried it. (weird I know)

Sounds like one of the windows processes hasn't / can't complete successfully. Do you have a memory key in the machine when you shut down as this can sometimes prevent it also. There could be a hardware issue regarding the power supply but I would be looking at that last.

Another thing i just thought of mate - In Windows 7 go into Device Manager and the the IEEE1394 Bus Controller. Right click the controller and go to the "Power Management" tab. Check-mark "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power

This could indicate quite a few things. Applications are hanging, and by the sounds of it, it's not Window's fault. Does it turn off when the power button is held?


Does it shutdown in safemode?

I don't have the IEEE1394 Bus Controller in Device Manager.
