    Your power switch is sticking on the front, open the machine and follow the wire from the front and unplug it ,just pull it off, and see if it stops.

Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.

Asus motherboard a8v-vm jumper setting motherbord on but cpu fan not ON

You do not use a jumper to run the CPU fan. There will be a small 3 or 4 pin plug near the CPU mount and you can plug the wire from the fan into that plug only. If the one on the motherboard has 3 pins and your plug has 4, you can use it anyway; just be sure the slot on the back of the plug matches the side of the one on the board.
