Hello, I have a Dell INSPIRON and the front power light never shuts off. Other wise the computor is working perfectly.

Thank you

This sounds like the PC is just going into "sleep mode" and not completely shutting off. I will give you the options for VISTA - You can change the power settings by to to the Control Panel - Power Options. Click on "choose what the power buttons do" in the left panel. change "when I press the power button" to "shut down" it is probably currently set to "sleep".

Good luck
