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

In reply to: Power Supply

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.

Power/on/off

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