  1. Hey hey, Quick question for you gurus.

    when i shut down my computer it will not turn back on until I turn off the PSU then turn it back on. Then it starts normally and runs normally.

    my current rig:

    BFG 650w PSU SLI ready
    Asus Mobo
    AMDx2 3600+
    2gig crucial balistiks RAM
    2xGeforce 6700GS

    Any help or ideas would be great

    You didn't describe what procedure you use - do you mean a controlled shutdown from the 'start, turn off computer, turn off' sequence shuts it down BUT pressing the 'power' button on the case doesn't start it up?

    correct. Shutting down by using:

    Start>shut down>turn off

    But when i press the power button to turn the computer back on.... no go!
