    All I can think of is to check your front panel connectors, Young Jedi!

    What Operating System?

    You might have reset the BIOS!

    Do you know what motherboard you have so we can take a look?

    May the force be with you :darth:

    sorry i was away the other day i have just re cased the whole internals of an old pc which shut down fine before so only the case and psu are new.
    I have tried a new psu and still fails to shut down.
    i have an Aopen Ak33 board running 256MB ram a maxtor 20Gb hdd and a Sony DVD-r, and netgear wireless card.

    These are the things i have tried so far.
    new psu
    only basic connected (hdd mem and video)= still fails to shut down.
    tried new power switch lead thing+ still no shutdown.
    ghosted hdd and tried a fuji :( still no luck
    reset bios(not flashed) still no luck

    i am now running short on ideas is it possible that its the case as this is the only thing thats new. I need help quick before it goes out of a window :knock:

    Only thing I can think of is mobo failure. Windows sends a signal to mobo and then mobo sends this to PSU to shut down. When moving everything to new case, something got damaged. Check mobo manual for any jumpers you might have knocked off. Make sure your case power switch leads are connected correctly.
