I've been facing a pretty weird problem lately. Everytime I start my PC it powers on (fans start spinning etc.), but it does not load any of the attached devices (i.e. monitor, headset, keyboard etc.), at least not for the first 15-30 minutes of continuosly restarting it.
(Just in case that was unclear: Monitor stays in Standby, lights on the mouse/keyboard don't go on etc.)
After a while it'll suddenly work perfectly, but it does not give me any indication of errors having occurred or anything like that, nothing. It also crashes when I leave it in Standby-mode for longer than 5 minutes.
Short version My PC is weird, here's why:
- Upon being activated, it boots, and then starts restarting 2-3 times
- It does not load any of the attached devices until I've restarted it long enough (15-30 minutes)
- It crashes when left in standby-mode for >5mins (no sound, only blinking lights, fans off)
My PC is sort of a welfare PC, it was around about 400€ total, it's 2 years old & using Win7. I'll add specs if needed.
Does anyone have any clue what the potential cause for this is? I've never heard anything about this, I cannot find any documentation of this problem, and it's starting to get annoying, spending 15-30 minutes each day just starting the PC.
