    Default computer wont power down

    operateing system logs out, and shuts down like it is suppose to, but the tower still has power going to every thing. This all started after i pull my 4870 video cards to clean them, i was getting glifs. I put the cards back in one at a time, just to check to make sure one of them was not bad, they both work fine now. But when i shut my computer down the power supply never shuts off, and keeps powering the system. Ive done a cmos clear, set the bios to default, and did a system restore, and just pulled the power plug and let it set for a while. The only way to shut the power off is to flip the switch on the power supply. Thanks for any help taking care of this problem

    sure your not putting it in standby? If you have vista, the power button on the start menu will do this.

    No, it is not going into standby.

    There might be an incompatibility.I had a similar issue, they released a new BIOS version the supposedly fixed the issue, but there was no change.
    Anyway, I had this problem for nearly 3 years and it didn't affect the components.

    I've seen motherboard power management (APIC?) drivers cause similar issues. Mostly likely some driver didn't like having the graphics cards removed and reinstalled. Much less likely, but also possible, is some minor damage to the motherboard, one or both graphics cards, or even the power supply.

    Its the motherboard or the power supply, Ive tried it with two differant video cards, and it does it with either. I unhooked the hard drive, and it still does not power down, so its not the operating system. The only other thing i could think it might be is a corrupt BIOs, but does not seem likely. Some one on an other forum said they have had a problem like this for 3 years. The computer works just like it is suppose to when the op is on.
