    I recently bought a HP a6040n mid tower pc and I'm having a problem.
    When I hit either the shut down or the hibernate button it will shut down all right, but then the power button stays on and the fans go full speed. I press the power button again and it comes back on like normal.

    I only want my pc to shut down completely.

    Here is what my pc has
    • 2GB of DDR2 memory
    • Intel Core 2 Duo E6320
    • Windows Vista Home Premium

    I put it a new video card and power supply on it recently too.
    My Power Options are on the Energy Star option, on the defaults.

    Help please?

    Try ti do this:

    Got to Control Panel> Performance and Maintenance> Power Option> Advanced
    and select "Shut down" in the "When I press the power button on my computer" section.

    Thanks, but I had tried that already x3;

    The problem was fixed, the power supply was acting funny. I thought it had to do something with vista, since I'm still a new user and all.

    I still prefer XP over Vista : /
  4. first of all is that your ram or is it you capacity cuz my ram has more memory than that and ram isnt know to have over 3 gb and this is a vista not an hp but just dont press the button to turn it off do it from the start menue
