So I tried to turn on my PC this morning, but it wouldn't turn on after about the 5th press of the power button it turned on. This is a newly built PC, is it a problem with the system or maybe the power button is a bit dodgy and just needed press many times? This is the first time it has happened.

System:

PSU: Seasonic 750watt X series gold.
GPU: GTX 670 PE
CPU: Intel i5 3570k
Motherboard: ASrock extreme 4 Z77

Any ideas?

Double check all of your m/b connections, especially the cpu PEG, 24pin and case panel headers. Also check the connections at the psu.

I've checked everything, everything is in. It only happened once which was today. 5th press of power button it turned on, it turns on normally now as well. Is it just a one of thing.

Sometimes those power buttons get dust/lint in them - kinda like a cat hacking up a hairball.
