Default What could be my computers problem.

Ok I turn my computer off almost every night. And when I wake up the next day and turn it on it starts no problem, but if I restart the computer or anything after the first bootup its a pain in the ass to get it to start again. The computer turns on and everything you can hear power running though it. It just doesnt load. I have to keep turning it on off on off until it beeps and then it loads. And sometimes it takes a couple times of holding in the power button and releasing to get it to power up.

Would anyone know the problem that is causing this?

Thanks

On my IBM, I have a problem that sounds similar. I need to turn the power on and off a few times until it beeps. By me it's because I have a dead CMOS Battery.

Easiest way is to trace ya power wire to ya mobo, remove the cable(it will be connected to 2 pins) then just short them with a screw driver to turn it on and off. If it works ok, then you know its ya power switch (cos ya have just turned it on by bypassing it)
