Default Weird startup

when i start up my computer i sometimes hear the video card fans start up then stop , start up then stop all the while nothing on screen excepty the lil blinking light that tells you if the monitors on. If i wait a while, it eventually starts up. Why is this happening?

ALso do we need to install windows update? Last time i did this my cpu was working at half speed. I did a windows restore and i got it working fine again


Thanks alot

you should update windows. The updates are often security updates, which protect you from viruses, hackers etc.

Check all the connectors are seated properly. Has this just started happening? And if so, then what were ya doing with the computer before it started?

To me, it looks like a loose connection or the fan is dying. I'd look foward into tightening them more or replacing the fan.
