    Fan and power lights remain turned on after shutting down PC


    When I turn off my computer, the screen goes back as normal, but the lights remain turned on and the fan doesn't stop.


    If I hold down the power button for 5 seconds, it powers off, but I want to avoid doing so everytime.


    I've read a lot of similar questions, but none of their answers solved my problem.


    I've tried:


    - Unchecking fast boot

    - Running power troubleshooter

    - Updating all drivers

    - Doing a clean boot


    But none of above solved the issue.


    Thanks in advance, FZs

    :)

  2. The light on the power button stays on even after shut down.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your description, I understand that the light on the power button stays on even after shut down.

    We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    This issue may arise due to various reasons:


    • System not properly shut down or might be in sleep mode.

    • Power cord connected to the device.

    • Change in the settings.
    I would appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • Did you make any recent changes to the settings?

    • Does the CPU fan spins after the shutdown?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, (if you are using a laptop).

    Unplug the charger from the lap top and check if the issue persists and also try to shut down from the lock screen.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow these steps to run Power troubleshooter:

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Power.

    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    6. Check if issue persists.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

  3. Pc fans start but no light in power button

    A few days ago this problem started i made my PC put to sleep but when click my mouse or pressed keyboard buttons nothing happened. No light in mouse and keyboard then rebooted but did not help.

    So removed all the cables.pressed the power button for 30 secs.And my PC started up. After this my PC started hanging at sleep. So I pressed the power button for a few secs while PC was on and fan were running
    a little faster. Switched off removed all cables pressed power button for 30secs boom it worked. Everytime this worked but now i shutdown pc and its not working.

    Note: So now when i press the power button while pc is on sometimes fans run fast and sometimes processor fan goes off and when i turn on my pc sometimes keyboard light flaahes and switches off.

    My pc specs

    Win 7

    Graphics Nvidia GeForce 6150 nforce 430

    AMD Athlon X2 be2300 dual core 1.9GHz

    Nanya Ram 1gb

    Hitachi hdd 160gb

    Bestec psu

    Hope this helps you fix the problem.
