Default Boot up problem?

So I recently build a new computer;
Processor- intel core i5 2500k
Motherboard - Gigabyte Z68X UD3H B3
Video card - Radeon HD 7750
Memory - 6Gb (Corsair Dominator I think?)
Hard Drive - 1Tb (forgot what brand it was but it was used if that helps)
Case - Cooler Master HAF 912
Optical Drive - Some cheap gear head cd/dvd drive.
So I was new to building computers when I built it (and still am XD). The problem is when I shut the computer down it shuts down fine, but when I boot it up it says that it shut down unexpectedly and asks if I want to start it up in safe mode. But I click the start normally and it boots up fine. Also a couple of times when I turn it on, it gets the blue screen of death and then continues with what I explained before and is fine after all that. I'm wondering what I need to do to fix this. Is this a software problem or did I assemble something wrong? Because I probly did either way.
PS my optical drive isnt recognized by my computer, not a big problem so far as I haven't needed to use it but I still would like it to work. I checked device manager ect. I think I just plugged the SATA cable in wrong but if there's another answer I would love to hear it.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I didn't really know what to classify the first problem because I don't know what's causing it. Well anyway Thanks in advance!

I might be able to help. What do the BSOD's say? And the Safe Mode thing? I'll look into that.

Nah, It's all good. For some reason it didn't automatically close steam when I shut it down and that somehow caused it to shut down unexpectedly. As long as I exit Steam before I turn it off it's fine.
