Question Psu Power Switch Question

Hey all.. I have a new power supply that I havent install yet, it has a power switch on the back of it, but my old PSU doesnt, it just turns on when I hit the power button on the front of comp.. If I leave my new psu switch to on, will it still safely shut down and start up by using the power switch on the front of comp? Or do I have to manually turn my comp on and off from the psu (back of comp). Also, whats the difference on the switch that says 115v and 230v, Its set at 115v I believe.. Thanks!


Matt

You don't have to switch off the PSU in the back of your computer on a standard shutdown. Turn it off if you're unplugging your computer or doing anything with the hardware.

Moved as it's a hardware issue not a windows issue.
