I have to press the power button, and then press the restart button to boot my computer. Otherwise, it makes some beeps but doesn't boot at all

Apparently it's "one long, two short - Video failure"
Though when I press the restart button after that it boots up fine?

Hi zestron, sorry to hear you are having this problem.
You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it
a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP
and if it is provide the model name or series number, motherboard and any
add on card details would also help others to help you better.

I took my video card out and cleaned out a bit of dust in the fan, and now it boots fine. Bizarre

Ok, we have established it is a desktop down to the fact it has an add on
video card!
If you require assistance you must provide information for people to work with.
