    My computer wont shut down.


    My motherboard broke down and i replaced it with another one.The problem is that when i shut down the pc, the monitor goes black but the fans are still running.Same when i press the power button.First i thought that my PSU its my problem.I had a 400 PSW.Now i replaced my PSU with a 520W one and the problem persists.
    My specs are:
    AMD Phenom X3 8600b
    Sapphire Radeon R7 240 1Gb DDR5
    4Gb RAM DDR2 800-MHz
    Mobo:Foxconn A6VMX

    When your "motherboard broke down and i replaced it with another one" (from post #1),
    Did you do a clean install of Windows, or plug in the HD with the old Win 7 install and use that, or ... ?
    What did you do when replacing the motherboard ?
    Is the new motherboard an exact replacement of the same make and model of the original ?

    If you are running with the original install and changed the Motherboard, that can be a problem ...

    One thing you could try is create a bootable Linux CD and boot with that.
    See if shutting down from the Linux CD has the same problem as Windows.

    If Linux shuts down correctly, it sounds like a Windows problem.
    If Linux has the same problem as Windows, it sounds like a hardware problem such as a short, power switch wired wrong, etc.

    This is good advice. I would also advise you check for any BIOS updates to the motherboard, and see what changes are in any updated ones before considering an update. The reason i mention this, is I have seen this non-shutdown behavior caused by poorly implemented BIOS functions, that are corrected with updates.

    That's good advice.
    Also, with a new MB it's always good to start with a Bios reset, check all settings, and save them.

    I updated my bios to the latest version,nothing changed.I thought that if i will install win8 it will fix my problem..Also thought that my psu is the problem but no..3 different psu s same problem.Im just scared that if i have to shut down my pc from the psu switch my hdd/psu will break down.
