Hey all, this is a 1 month old build, and i have a strange problem.
When i first built the system 1 month ago I never new of this website so i did not follow "the guide". Anyway i did a test power on pushed the power button and the standby light up by the ram came on, but nothing happened.
I pushed the power button again and the system fired right up, no issues.
Odd i thought, so i went about my business and rebooted the computer several times installing the new drivers, etc. I power down the system and when i come back to power it on again, same deal. Push button one time the standby light comes on, push it again, system powers on. Runs flawlessly.
I found this annoying but didn't want to RMA or anything. I updated the bios to the latest found on DFI's website (note this is still day 1 of the build) with no help (yes i used winflash, again before i found this site, and had to reset the bios using the jumper to get it to post). That didn't help and still had to push it two times from a cold start.
Now its worse, now when i shut down the pc, and go to turn it back on the standby light barely flickers on/off as well as the troubleshooting lights (normal brightness, the ones at the bottom) are flashing, and the Lan light flashing, power light on case flashing. Push button again NOTHING. I have to flip the psu switch in the back to off then back on then push button to get light to come on, then push button again to make system come on. I am at a loss as to what to do so now my nightly routine when i'm done with the system is to shutdown windows pc turns off and i flip the power switch on teh back of the PSU so when i go to turn it on like "normal" (pushing power button twice) the next day. Also note the same symptoms happen when using the buttons on the mobo.
I'm very frustrated and wondering if anyone else has run into this problem?
The only thing i have found that i didn't do in the build guide is connect the (4) power connectors. I only have the 24 pin and 4 pin cables connected. The Floppy and molex are not connected at this time. I will connect those when i get home but i suspect that will not solve this problem.
Any insight from the pros on here is much appreciated!
