I think what's happened is the system hibernated rather than being completely shut down before you pulled it apart. I would just choose the option that is highlighted.
If it's no go you may need to repair or reinstall the Windows OS.
Did as you directed and it booted right into the OS. So far, so good. One question for you though, this PC I'm finishing up is one of two builds I've done recently. In fact, the only two builds I've ever done. For the most part, both PC builds are the same. This particular one started out as an upgrade, but with the demise of the mobo I opted to copy the other build I had already completed. That build has been without incident and runs perfectly. So, PC build A (the successful build) boots right up when I press the power button. What I mean by that is, as soon as I press the power button the fans start spinning and mobo lights come on. With PC build B (the one I'm trying to finish), when I push the power button it takes as long as five seconds or so for the fans and lights to come on.
The only difference between the two builds is the PSU and RAM. Now, with PC Build B when I did have it up and running with the previous mobo and CPU, I'd hit the power button and it would start right up. So the five second delay that's occurring now is a new issue.
Any idea why that would be happening?
As an FYI, on PC build B, when I was having all the issues with the previous mobo, I went through various troubleshooting steps to determine it was actually the mobo that was the problem. One of the recommendations from GTG was to disconnect the power button and reset button on the front panel, in essence bypass them by using a screw driver to short the system panel header so the PC would come on. I did this twice. That was a few weeks ago. Since then, I had not reconnected the power and reset button on the front panel until today. With the five second delay I'm getting on power up, is it possible that I may have reversed the connections? In other words, connected the reset to the power button and connected the power to the reset button. If I did this, then when I pressed the power on button I would've actually been pressing the reset button. That may not be the reason for the power up delay, but thought I would mention it just in case.
