Does your PC turns on only after some time you press Power Button ON? Mine started to do just that and I was searching for the problem for this behavior.
Sometimes computer seems to start on its own without pressing power button. Like a delayed start. Sometimes it seems to work again fine.
At first I thought that power button was not working and broken and didn’t make good contact inside. I disassembled it and found that indeed printed circuit board was broken in half (probably when I tried to press it harder when no start condition began).
I replaced it with the new DIY button and it seemed at first the problem was solved, however it reappeared the next day.
Then I realized that computer only starts with delay first time in the morning when I plug it back in the mains socket. (Yes, call me paranoid, but I disconnect power cord from all equipment every night when I shut down computer.) Read the rest of this entry »
