01-Metallica-[Cooling Fans came with power off] 31st MAR-2007
When I came down this morning the cooling fans in my computer were running.
I shut the computer down yesterday and it was totally off when I went to bed.
The computer had not rebooted or anything.
Probably some setting I can't find.
The computer is a few weeks old and it's never done this before as far as I know.
Was it warm last night? or have a Thunderstorm? -
Second When you turn your PC off Do you just shut down windows or do you actually turn the Main AC Power off by either turning the Rear Master Power Switch OFF
or by shutting down a Power Surge Power Strip
so that the AC Power is removed?
If the AC power is still ON the PC is just sitting idle with +5 VDC Standby Power
So a power Surge could set the fans on The switch in front is called Power ON, but it is only controlling the Motherboard Not the Power Input to the Power Supply Years ago Yeah It used to be wired to the AC Power IN to the Power Supply but not anymore - BUT
If the AC Power was removed
And the fact that the PC is only a few weeks old
It is possible to have the Rear Main Power Switch
wired wrong so that Standby Power is still ON or perhaps the switch was not toggled
completely/properly to the OFF Position OR
Might also be House Wiring Problem
If the Hot & Neutral are reversed Is this a new/replaced power receptacle? Or it could be a Faulty Power Strip or Power Switch
Tell me how you turn PC ON & OFF including the Main AC Power in
Tell me how you have PC connected to AC Power .
Are you using more than 1 AC Power receptacle in the room?
Is the PC connected in an AC Line with a Motor or Compressor?
Has the room recently been improved/repaired?
Ohhhhh or is it - - -
I see you are in the Netherlands Is it my tomorrow already APRIL FOOLS???
