I have what i'd consider a very peculiar problem with my system.
I built the PC a while back and its been working fine up til a few weeks ago, now, for some reason when the computer is turned off.... it doesnt like to turn back on.
The odd thing is, the computer does turn on, in as much as the lights on the front (both CD drives and the green and orange load lights) come on, but nothing else works. For example. I see nothing on the monitor, the mouse nor keyboard come on.
its stumped me becuase i've built a few computers now and i've never had a problem like this, if anything it just wouldnt turn on at all, not this kind of ... "half turn on" so to speak, especially not after its been working for a while.
Normally after turning it on and off repeatedly it works (this was the case for the first 2 times) however now i've spent too long trying and i'm sure there has to be an easier way. (plus the fact that turning the computer on and off repeatedly really cant be good for it)
One other thing I worked out was that if I plug the usb devices into my front sockets they seem to work ok. which leads me to believe theres something wrong with the motherboards main back panel connections.
anyway, any ideas on how to fix this would be a huge help
so thanks in advance!
