Computer sometimes doesn't boot
I recently encountered a strange problem with a new build that happens occasionally. After sleep or shut down, when I turn it on, everything powers up for a second and then shuts off...then it tries to power up again automatically. This happens a few times until eventually it stays running until either the system starts up or it get stuck on a blank screen. If that happens, I have to turn off the power supply altogether.
Any thoughts? I've also started to notice that the fan noises aren't as consistent anymore, I can hear more "powering up and powering down". Maybe that has something to do with it?
