Hey guys,

Just wondering why I need to turn my computer on twice, sometimes three times for it to boot up successfully?

When I turn it on the first time, nothing comes on screen and I don't hear the single beep (successful boot). So I switch off the PC (hold the power button for 3 seconds), then switch it back on and then it boots fine.

What do you guys reckon it is? It's has a brand new motherboard (Gigabye 8I95P Pro), cpu (Intel 2.6 Dual Core) and ram (2 X 512mb DDR2) that I've just installed and still using old HD, Graphics card, DVD drives and Case.

Thanks in advance,
Brandon.

Hey thanks for the reply.

Im not too sure what PSU it is. It's a 350w and came with my Super Flower case.
