Have you tried just letting it sit for a little while after you power down?

It might be that that fan has a delayed turn-off to get the excess heat out of the computer after shutdown.

Wait 5-10 minutes after you power down, and see if it eventually stops.

Dell compatible

Try reseating the power mtrbd. connection several times. If the problem still persists, then that or any similar PSU isn't 100% compatible though that being the only issue. If you can find a 20-pin PSU to install instead of 24-pin, check results. Of course, next time verify what if any wording depicts Dell ready PSU.

And of course you set POWER SETTINGS in control panel to tell the system what to do.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
