HD light blinks after PC off???

March 20, 2009 at 15:28:06
Specs: Windows XP
When I turn off my pc thru windows, it shuts down but the HD light continues to blink...and sometimes it restarts, other times it sits there and blinks until I restart it next day.
Also, when booting up, I often get a constant beep that stays on for a couple of minutes and the HD light is constantly lit in the process.
Is my HD going out, or is my power supply bad and not turning off completely??
Any help appreciated

I have no clue but I do have a few questions that could help others.

When you shutoff your PC, are there any fans still spinning? Is your hard drive still spinning? (my way is to put my finger on it to feel the vibration) Is there any noise comming from the tower? Is this a custom built PC? (i'm asking because the HD Led light connectors could be in the wrong place?) The beeping noise could mean something. What's the pattern? Ex: Short, short, long. Something like that. If it's a name brand PC, what is it and the model number.
