Fans won't shut off

Hopefully I can get some help with this. Problem is, when I shut down the pc my fans continue to run infinitely. Everything from the chassis, cpu, gpu, psu, optic drive. I've checked to make sure windows is set to shut down, I've looked in the bios settings. I've cleared the CMOS. I've updated the bios. I've tried a different PSU. I thought it might be the board, however this is the second board. First board was RMA'd due to a faulty ram slot and had the same issue.

The fans are all PWMs, 3 are connected to a chassis header via spliter. Cpu's are connected to the cpu header via spliter. However, one of my cpu fans will occasionally shut down, which seems strange.

Im wondering if it might be an OS issue. I might try reinstalling windows. Otherwise Im lost. I wouldn't think it'd be the board, not two in a row. At least I sure hope not.

Any Ideas are greatly welcomed.

Thanks

Sorry for jumping in here, but try this command and see what's happening.

1)hold the "windows" button down while pressing "R" as well

2) in the command box type ---> shutdown -s -f -t 0

 

...tell us whats happening after this :)

Cryptlocker "Process" remover...will NOT delete Cryptolocker, only the processes...( a "safety precaution" I took for those who still want to "try" paying the ransom to get their files back. DON'T FORGET TO MONITOR YOUR TIME LEFT BEFORE PAYMENT! )

 

("KillCrypt" will automaticly open %appdatadir%...just guide this to Cryptolocker-Virus and double-click on it. Remember...if you "restart" your system, the processes will be back...use this only for emergencies if you want to create a quick document. While this processes is killed, your docs wont get infected, but WILL be encrypted (unusable) when you restart the PC/Laptop OR clicking on the Virus again!!!)

mmm...then it sounds more like a BIOS-thing...

You could try the following:

1) in your bios, DISABLE Power Management for everything

2) You didnt mention what OS you are running, but if its XP, go to Display Properties--Power, and change System Standby to NEVER

3) Also (depending on WHAT OS you have), you could even fix your MBR (Master BOOT Record)...that can be slightly corrupt...

They're 4 wire pwms, except for the phantek, it uses some 4 wire adaptor. Its not only my chassis fans, its my gpu, psu, optic drive, cpu chip (led indicator). Basically the only things that shut off are the display input, TV tuner card, and the mobo's onboard led code display and onboard button leds for pwr/res.

I'll look at the bios again, see if I missed something. You'd think setting it to default would power down. I failed to list my HW/OS :P

PS: also open up msconfig ( Winlogo + R-key) and enter "msconfig" without the "".

If you have any suspicious files there, just "untick" them. I believe McAfee can sometime also be a problem (if you HAVE McAfee of course)...could also be a program thats keeping you pc on "hold". If the above post didnt help, try and post your msconfig programs here...if possible...

If the hardware keeps running even after Windows has shut down, it's difficult to see this as a software issue. Still, try using the Linux live CD of your choice, and see if the behavior changes when you shut down the computer. I would predict that shutting down from Linux won't change how your hardware behaves. I think you have a problem with the mainboard. Just out of curiosity, what board are you using?
