Power Supply?

Recommended Posts

Ok when you turn on my computer (self built recently) from the back powersupply it turns on all the fans and the mobo light is orange.

 

The computer is not on until I push the power button on the case but I would like to know how to make the computer turn on only when I

 

press the power button and leave the power supply on in the back. When I shut down it hangs at the shut down screen and when I press

 

the power button it turns off everything the mobo light will turn orange again and all the fans will STILL be on. Please I would like to turn off and on

 

my computer without turning off the powersupply in the back and pressing the power buttons in front. Anyone have an idea whats going on?

Your computer might be going in to "standby" mode when you push the power button.

 

Go to Control Panel -> Power Options -> Advance

Change the option that says "When I press the power button on my computer:"

 

From "standby" to "shutdown".

Its a lil more complicated then that and yes I have already got that set.

 

See when I turn on the power supply the WHOLE pc turns on except it

 

doesnt boot windows until i press the power button then the power led

 

turns from orange to green. When i shut down it hangs at shut down

 

screen till i press power button to turn the power led orange again then i

 

turn off the power supply because all the fans still run when led is orange.

 

Is it a option in my bios? Front panel jumpers? My first time building a computer.

Have you checked the BIOS settings? Should be some APCI settings in there...

 

The light coming on on the mobo is normal. Don't worry about that.

No option about ACPI but I am running under ACPI, all there is in power management is SOFT OFF and AC back function that I thought would do anything but even when I change them around they do nothing. But when mobo light is orange ALL THE FANS IN THE CASE ARE ON !!! Is there a way to turn off the fans until I power everything up?
