  1. Hi, my pc is experiencing some odd behaviour when I go to turn it on. I press the power button on the case and it seems that the PSU and fans power up but the PC does not boot and just shows a black screen.

    Its not until I shut down my pc and use the power switch on the PSU will it boot correctly, still using the power button on the case. I have tried a new power supply but this hasn't solved the problem.

    I wondered if anyone has experienced a similar problem or had and suggests on what to try next?

    Many Thanks

    The motherboard may need to be replaced...
