Have to boot 4 to 5 times to get it to boot up
first three boots yield a blank screen, no boot at all
on third or 4 th try i get dual monitors booted up but both have desktop and in very low res ( Not a good boot)
On 4th or 5th try I finally get both monitors booting up with desktop icons on one monitor and other working as second screen, however the resolution is at max res, works but not a perfect boot.
On final try i get a good boot thee way it is supposed to boot.
On each boot try I have to do a complete power up and then turn on the computer. Thus when i shut down on early boots i have to turn off power strip to computer and re power up from start.
On failed boots or bad boots i usually don't get lights on the internal drives or get a couple cd dvd lights on and no light on the external dvd. When i get lights on all internal and external drives i usually get a boot, whether it is good or bad it boots up in some format.
I had a suggestion it might be a bad Cap not sure what that means. however i did get a few errors in last month of high temp.
