Cpu lag and internet problems when pressing the power button

So as you can see on the title, I'm having a problem with my power button on my computer, I have figured it out and I know for fact it's the power button because when I turn on my computer using the power button, I load into windows 7 with cpu lag etc, If I click restart it, then it works perfectly.

PC Specs:

Case: NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black SECC Steel, ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W 6-Core Desktop Processor
MBO: ASRock 970 PRO3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
HDD: Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive, Blue - OEM

  1. I think because the power button turns off your pc then there will be no internet or cpu operation, so that might explain it.

    Whoops my bad, I mean when turning on.
  3. So if you start it from being fully off it's slow, but if you start it, then restart it, it's fine?

    That's not the power button, but it is unusual. I'm not too sure what would cause that.

    It's not the power button, but it is an interesting link you made to the issue. If you open the door to a working oven it gets hotter in the room, would you say it was the open door causing the heat or the fact that the oven was turned on that was causing the heat? If opening the door caused the room to heat up, then opening the door on an turned off oven would also cause the room to get hotter.

    There is nothing in the power button that would cause a computer to run slow, all it does is send a signal to the motherboard to tell the power supply to send it a jolt of power to turn on.

    Try giving the system a few minutes to load fully and see how it acts. Maybe try one stick of RAM at a time if you have more than one.
