Angry computer Shutdown?

Its weird now my computer wont shut down any more. windows will shut down but the computer will stay on, so i have to switch the power switch on the back of the powersupply everytime i want to shutdown my comp. has any one had this happen to them or have any sug. on wat might be causing it. I already checked the plugs from the front of the case they are correct.

O one more thing the buttons on the front dont work. like the reset wont reset the comp. and holding the power in wont shut off the comp.

What motherboard, What power supply. Have you tried Flashing the BIOS or clearing the CMOS?

This is most likely a motherboard or power supply problem.

could be either motherboard or power supply as i have seen both as the cause in the past. more often it turns out to be the motherboard though

I figured out it was my powersupply

I plugged my old xion psu and it worked just fine

if my mobo has a 24 pin connector but my power supply has a 20 pin connector do i have to have the adapter?

you should use 24 pin power supplies. it can work with an adpater or just withe the 20 pin but you really should get a 24 pin psu

i cant stress enough not to go cheap on your PSU

its one of the most ( if not the most ) vital part of your system

its worth an investment
