So something, somewhere that's working/loaded/used after windows actually starts is corrupting a driver, which fast boot will cache, but is not overwriting the original driver itself so false/reset works as normal. get redirected here
Count yourself lucky that you didn't damage the board!Yikes, scary. Yes absolutely. You may also one to try and remove all but one stick of memory and test it multiple times swapping out that one stick and see it boots normally.

Hopefully, that will end the struggle of booting on second attempt only. Ask ! The first time I turn the computer on in the morning, all the lights turn on and all the fans turn on but the video never displays.
My one concern is that the PSU is not powerful enough for my components. My notes from the error searching process indicated that it was more irregular, but then I switched graphic cards lots of times as well, and other factors might have influenced it).

Give these a try and let me know how it goes. Computer Won't Boot First Time Always. I have to turn the PSU power switch off and on, but the computer then reboots again fine.

Big whoop. Cannot find anything wrong with the individual devices on software based tests.

True. Then I noticed it seemed the problem was related to how I pushed the power switch. calvoooSep 13, 2015, 7:56 AM You are right. I initially did not have this problem when the components arrived, and everything was running perfectly.

The computer completely locks up, I can't move the mouse etc, and can't even restart using the buttons on the front (these work otherwise). Only thing I can think of that I didn't update is the BIOS. I can play games like GTA V, Life is strange, PES 2015, and many more without problems. Seems like this is a tough one...
This was also something that suddenly started to happen to the machine after several years of running (and some crashes, due to a failing hard drive. Can't know if it was related). With fast boot turned off, when you start the pc, it initiates all the drivers from scratch, so loads the original drivers right out of Windows etc. SamathaVJan 16, 2016, 10:33 PM unksol said: Only thing it could be would be the motherboard.
