Hey i have a emachines W2646 and after my computer is shutdown and powered off, my power supply fan continues to move as if it was powered on, is this normal? The only way to make the power supply fan go off, is to unplug the power cord. thanks

Also, ive been getting notifications on my windows xp that my software is not genuine, but my windows xp OS is valid and IS genuine. It recently started telling me this a couple days ago..

i think that is normal regarding your PSU, yes. my old one used to do that as well; i think its to cool down the psu, as it switched off after about 10 minutes. does your switch off after a while, too? i'd give it half an hour and try it.
also, doesnt your PSU have a switch on the back where you could just switch it off?

if your windows is genuine, contact microsoft about it. i had this happen when i changed too much hardware, i had to phone them... wasnt too much of an issue, the woman on the phone fixed it for me. cant remember exacly, but i think i told her my key and she re-set my key to an 'ok' state...

Well, whenever i first ran my computer and found out the power supply wasnt turning off, i switched to a different power supply from the same brand computer, emachines. Even after switching, the power supply wouldn't turn off, however, i'll try waiting to see if it goes off automatically after 30 minutes or so. Its my sisters computer so im just trying to help her out :thumbsup:

And i recently added a second HD (hard drive) to my pc, so that may be why it says my windows isn't genuine? Otherwise, i'll try calling microsoft and see why it says that.

thanks

is all your hardware set to shut down upon shutdown? like on my computer, on hibernate, my network card doesnt shutdown (its a setting) so its still drawing power. The reason for this particular setting is so you can wake the computer up via network if you choose. I dont do that, but the setting for network card not shutting down is a default and im to lazy to change it since it doesnt hurt anything, and I usually turn the computer off not hibernate, but I can do the same thing with shut off as well. So make sure all your hardware is set to shut down on its own, you can do that in control panel.
