every morning I turn my dell inspiron but for the past week. my system does not come on inmediately. first, I usually wait for about 20 t0 30 minutes with no success. so, then I press the on/off button a few times and my system will usually start but not inmediately. it does come on but about an hour or more after pressing the on/off buton a few times.

I hope my posting makes sense

any help is appreciated

This could me a loose connection or perhaps a failing component doesn't like the colder mornings. I would unplug from the wall, touch bare metal of the case interior to discharge any static in your body, then inspect the interior and clean out all the heat trapping dust. Make sure all the cable connections are tight and secure, including those in the back of the computer. If all is good and it still does this, then I would look at swapping in a known good power supply unit (PSU) and see what happens.
