Question about HP Computers & Internet
The CPU fan is always running in all PC's - if it didn't then the CPU would over heat and the PC would crash. If the PC is not shutting down when instructed then something is preventing the operating system from carrying out the command - for example a program running in the background.
I would suggest run a virus scan first (make sure your anti virus is up to date first). Post a reply how you get on, with the results.

SOURCE: unable to restart computer
The little green light is telling you that there is power to the Motherboard (MB) I would reset the CMOS on the Motherboard...boot into the BIOS to check that the hard drive is seen by the PC.and go from there...
Here is a link to the Asus Manual which shows you how to Clear the CLRTC..(CMOS) Look for section 4.3 on Jumpers.Clearing the memory built into the MB just sets it back to the defaults so dont worry about hurting anything while you perform this task...I can also tell you that When you clear this that there is no bells or whistles clashing cymbals or otherwise signal that tells you you have accomplished the task...you have to have faith that its done...Simply move the plastic jumper to the prescribed location and count to three then move it back to its original location...Secondly these parts are small and the writing on the MB is smaller so sometimes a magnifying glass is essential...Let me know how it works for you..
Asus also has the Recover Pro utility which is an always available recovery tool. It stores user data, applications and the operating system in the host-protected area of the hard drive. Users can easily recover system to their original factory conditions or to a more recent state without restore CDs. No need to worry about losing data due to virus attacks.

Turn off the monitor before pressing the power button, if the doesn't work, try unplugging the monitor completely before pressing the power button.
