recently my computer started to behave like an old car and won't start up anymore unless I flip the power switch repeatedly. What happens when I power it on:
- CPU fans spins briefly and very slowly, then it stops
- Same with GPU fan
- No BIOS beeps or HDD activity
- Screen stays black
After turning it on and off for like 10 times, it'll eventually boot like normal and run smooth without any problems what-so-ever. But I'm worried it might eventually die completely.
Anyone know the most common cause of this? Maybe I should just leave the computer powered on? :)
Okay just a little follow-up: Just one day after posting this my computer now refused to turn on at all, it seems my old mainboard just died (Gigabyte P35 DS3R for reference). I replaced the mainboard earlier today and everything is working fine again.
