Computer hesitating to start
Weird,when i started my computer today,i cut after 2 secs.

I pressed start button,2 secs later,cut!Pressed again,1sec later,cut,everything,the fans,etc... looks like there was no power after i pressed it. the 3rd time,it started normally.

Sometimes when I change something in the BIOS, especially overclocking it will take a second or two. Then the fans will start and turn off as thought it isn't going to run. But after a few moments of waiting it will turn everything on and boot.

If your Overclocked it means your not quite stable.

This part of Overclocking to find stability at your desired overclock is tedious and sometimes annoying.

Save your present overclock 3 or 4 times in saved Bios section of Bios. play from there to find stability at at your desired overclock.

Replace the switch MountainMods.com-Power/Reset Switches-Illuminated Anti-Vandal Switch - Blue/Black (Momentary)

Or a new case

check all connections but if its a faulty switch its time to get it out of there,

Don't need one of these :doh:

Sounds like the typical Gigabyte cold boot issue (I found it would happen on a reboot as well). Wouldn't surprise me at all if the situation got worse over time until it just won't boot anymore. I've had it happen to me and seen it way too often, hence why I refuse to buy their motherboards anymore. If you can try swapping out the mobo to see if the issue persists.

I wish i could but i don't have a ton of mobos in the garage:haha:
