|Here's a good one for you. Since upgrading my system (see earlier post of same name)I have developed a problem with starting up. This is the final procedure to get it started: I hit the power button it fires up (lights come on and fans start)and then immediately dies...whir...nothing. I then shut off the power at the power splitting box (comp, monitor, printer, etc)pump the power button half a dozen times, turn on the juice at the main and hit start. It then fires up and the hardware runs but doesn't get to boot. I then repeat the process and hit the start button and it starts and boots and runs fine. If I have to "restart" as when a new program makes you do it, it restarts fine. I only have to jump thru these hoops when its shut off. |
All checks come back negative. No diagnostics show anything wrong. All the hardware runs once up and running.
What do you think? The mobo is a few years old and I upgraded the bios chip. Do you think it could be a bios battery thing? It fired up fine when I was having bios problems but this started once I got the bios configured.
