Reinstalled OS (XP) to this old PIII computer, installation process was smooth without any problem. XP detected and installed all the hardware/drivers. :)

When I shut down the computer from START > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off, Windows shuts down, Monitor turns Off ; but the computer fan still spins. I have to either press the Power button from the computer to turn it Off completely or switch Off from the wall power outlet. Checked BIOS's APM is Enabled.

Why is it so?

Check in the Control Panel under Power Options, there may be a box that needs to be ticked that says something like "Use Advanced Power Management"

Yep - that'll be the one
There's a tab called APM - in it an "Enable Advanced Power Management Support" check box

Thats if APM is supported as well.
