Turns off, but fans keep spinning

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My sig rig has been doing this for the past few months. It turns off except for the GPU and case fans.

I've tried to update my BIOS, nothing. I'm hearing this is a PSU related issue sometimes. How can I confirm?

The only way I can think of is to try using a different PSU but there has to be a smarter solution. biggrin.gif

im thinking maybe some part of the psu wore away/broke and doesn't go through the on/off switch or doesn't recieve any input from the switch. would be spooky if you turned you psu off and the fans kept spinning) tongue.gif

Yeah I don't have another PSU handy to troubleshoot and I really don't want to spend $150 to find out.

Lol, once the PSU switch is actually turned off she dies - as it should.
