Strange Power-on Problem

Recommended Posts

Over the last week for some reason I have to power on twice in a row for the computer to boot up. The first time I power on there are 3 solid LED's and the 4th one blinks on and off. Then I turn it off and wait a few seconds and turn it on again and it boots up fine. Any ideas why this happens? One time I turned it on the first time and went to bed and the following day turned it on, but I still had to power off and on again. So it has to be powered on twice within a limited period of time.

 

Thanks,

James

Is that the only possibility? I don't OC thru BIOS, but I do in Windows. I thought there would be instability in games if it were the power supply, but it is rock solid after booting up.

Sounds like you might have an issue with your PSU. I'd also check your connections. I know these sound like common resolves, but it's worth a look to potentially fix hours of frustration.
