    Default GA-EP43-UD3L will not Shutdown

    When I shutdown my system, the operating system (both Vista 64 and Win7 64) shutdown, but the power supply fan, cpu fan and system fan continue to spin. The only way to completely power off is to press and hold the power button for more than 4 seconds. Can anyone help me resolve this?

    When you boot afterwords there no message from windows it was not shut down properly?

    What BIOS version do you have?

    Sounds to me like you are putting the system to sleep, not shutting it down. Don't be offended by that comment, just letting you know as some users are unaware that vista and windows 7 default shut down button is actually sleep and not shut down.

    You must either manually change this buttons function in the power control panel, or click the little arrow on the start menu power down button and actually choose shut down.

    Did you know this? Just wondering, if you did not know that please do test now by clicking shut down as shown in this image and let us know if that works or not >>



    You may also want to go ahead and update your BIOS to see if that corrects things, if any of the above was not the issue. Latest BIOS is F7a for your board
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-EP43-UD3L (rev. 1.0)

    Be sure to read this guide if you are not familiar with BIOS flashing

    Thanks for getting back to me and no offense taken as sometimes it is the simple things. Unfortunately not this time. I had already checked power profiles and confirmed that shutdown was the default. However, as a test, I tried sleep, which actually shutdown the system and powered down the fans - I was abla to resume from the keyboard. So sleep seems to work properly, but shutdown leaves all the fans spinning.

    One last thing, I am reluctant to flash the current F4 bios to a later version as the later versions are for Revision 1.0 and my board is Revision 1.1. I don't find any bios to download for Revision 1.1.

    Are you sure about that? There's no sign for rev 1.1 on GB site.

    I am sure on th revision. Right below the PCI slots, it says Rev. 1.1. That is why I am reluctant to do anything with the 1.0 bios downloads. I also see no reference on the GB site to Rev 1.1.

    I can concur. I just built a new WHS using this board and it clearly states on the mobo itself - rev 1.1.

    Yes better be safe than sorry. Ask GB support and see what they say.

    Hibernation is the same as shutdown, you can try and see if it works.
