Almost everything is normal except when I shut down the unit, it just hangs on WAITING TO SHUT OFF message. The mouse cursor halts but the PC doesn't turn off. I have to press the power switch 5-7 seconds to shut it off. I tried to reformat and reinstall softwares but it is still the same.
Try unplugging any usb items or shutting them down before shutdown. Had same problem with HP product in past. Seems mb would not shut down usb items causing system to not shutdown. Removed external usb items and machine shut off normally. This included the usb mouse.seemed any power draw off usb would not allow shutdown.
go to the bios setup and load setup defaults or load bios defaults...save and exit...if this doesn't work try to check the specs of your pc,maybe its not compatible to the operating system your using...

There is a difference between puting a computer to sleep and switch it off. When asleep, (mostely used on laptop) everything stays in RAM and the computer is feeding the RAM, so everything stays correct to be used immediately. When you switch off the computer, in Windows, goto the logo in the left corner, click (left button of the mouse) and chose shut down. On the MAC there are more options, but I give one: Go to the little apple on the left corner of the screen, left mouse click and in the mene chose Shut Down... I hope this will be of any help.
Shut the power down to the computer all the power and pull the power cord out, remove all usb devices except the mouse and keyboard, Turn the unit back on and see if this fixes the problem, if it doesn't then you will have to go into the computer and clear the c-mos this will allow you to get into the bios screen from there you can set up the computer again. Check you manual for the instructions on bios reset, most times it is just pins 2+3 that need to have a jumper installed to reset it. READ THE MANUAL PINS 2+3 APPEAR ON MANY THINGS ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD
