    i have just bought a gaming pc
    i have asus crosshair 3 motherboard
    amd phenom 2 x4
    ati radeon 6850hd
    the pc works ok, but when i shut down the pc
    the led light of this cpu starts blinking, when i turn the pc on again
    it stops blinking and lights up, is this normal? do i have to worry about it?
    thanks

    im using windows 7 ultimate
    motherboard asus crosshair 3
    amd phenom x4 cpu
    i have chatted with a computer technician
    he said that its a normal thing to do that
    i also want to tell you that if i switch off the switch of the power supply
    is that a bad thing to do for the pc?
    because when i switch it off the led light goes off

    is good to turn it off with a power bar as have seen computers shutdown by windows still supply power to wired optical mouses. have never come across a board that is doing what yours does with the blinking. are you certain it is not in sleep mode when it should be off?
