  1. PC Tower will not power down?


    Long story short, I added an ssd as boot drive, and a new hdd for storage, and did a clean install of windows onto the ssd using a windows 10 image from the website and a flash drive, but now my pc won't power down. When I shutdown, windows goes through the normal sequence, and the monitor shuts off and acts as if everything is off, no signal, and the tower gets quieter almost as if some things shut down or maybe fans go into low power mode, I'm not sure.


    However, the power light stays on, something is definitely running in the tower, dvd drive still opens when button is pushed, but pressing the power button doesn't put it to sleep as it should, and from this point the only way to shut it down, or even turn everything back on for that matter, is to hold the power button to force shutdown, then press it to boot everything back up.


    I even tried force shutdown through cmd, and holding shift during shutdown, nothing changes, I get the same result, windows shuts down, monitor loses signal, but the pc stays on.

    :)

    Where can I find an powerful CPU for an PC Tower?

    I am thinking about building an PC Tower to run Ark Survival Evolved.

    Which means, I will need an CPU for Windows to run smoothly.

    Any Suggestions?

  3. Lost Power, now PC won't boot. Powers on and clicks.


    I had tried both of those steps. Neither worked. I have a replacement power supply on order. Should be here on Monday. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Hope for sure it is the Power Supply without testing it and the checking the Graphics Card.
