Hi guys, I'm recently facing a annoying problem.
The symptoms are , when i power up my computer , fans running ..everything sounds normal and running properly , however the keyboard doesn't lights up nor the monitor is receiving any signal.
Finally after power on and off the computer , the monitor and keyboard finally receives signal from the computer itself , I am not sure what problem it is. If anyone do know what is it , please share your experience or guide on how to fix this situation, because it is very annoying to start the computer everyday powering on and off just to get it boot up!

try a memtest on your ram for starters, bad ram will do things like that.
Another thing could be the power supply is failing.

Remove un-necessary components and start the system, if it refuse change psu or benchtest outside. Test RAM with MEMTEST.

Likely PSU or motherboard, possibly CPU but probably not. Start with basic hardware as mentioned above to rule out cards or drives. I doubt it's the ram 'cause if it was that--and only that--the bios would give a beep error.

Examine the motherboard. Do any of the capacitor tops look bulgy or puffed out--especially near the cpu socket? If so, then that's not the problem or it soon will be.
