I buy new laptop and simply just install fedora 26 and my laptop wont shut down because of hardware problems... My laptop brand is Casper which is local brand and they have their motherboard but with intel chipset included.

--sysinfo sudo dmidecode -t 2 ---> you can see my motherboard brand from here Shutdown working well in windows 10 but with Fedora 26 its not working.. i tried kernel paramaters with acpi=noirq or acpi=force acpi=off i tried all of them when i boot with these paramaters my laptop wont start :) so i need to format :)

No need to format, just edit boot parameters to at least go back to previous state.

If there's any error when you try to shutdown, take a picture of it.

Make sure BIOS is updated.

Maybe your local brand laptop is using some weird ACPI setup. Would you be willing to try booting with an extra kernel parameter as described here? e.g. When you start your laptop, interrupt the GRUB boot and add this to your kernel line "reboot=a,e,p,t"
