View Full Version : Odd shut down and start up problem.

22-01-2010, 08:21 PM
Ok so today after cleaning my video card, and reinstalling it. I turned my computer on, fans went but nothing popped up onto the screen. I then pressed the power button again and then everything went louder and then the screen worked.

Now on shut down, it shuts down, everything stops, then 5 seconds later, it will turn back on, just the fans though, nothing will go on the screens until I press the PSU switch.

Everything else goes fine except sometimes on start up it makes me choose a default BIOs option or something.

Did you configure the settings in the BIOS? Whats it saying on startup, about the BIOS exactly?

I didn't touch anything in BIOs before this. All I did was remove and clean the video card. I'll go check what it tells me now.

mmm.. Now that screen isn't popping up but the weird shut down and start up thing is.

Update: After some fiddling around it seems when I shut down with nothing in the USB ports, it works normally again.

I have the G15 Logitech Gaming Keyboard and I plug my Microsoft Optical Mouse into the G15 USB ports. If that helps.
