Solved Start up Problems Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: March 16, 2011 9:42 AM in Components Share PaqMan9 March 14, 2011 9:50:43 PM On Power up, lights come on and fans spin for 1 second, then everything powers down, and starts up normally a second later. This started after I made upgrades including, MB CPU, PSU, OS and RAM Computer: Asus Sabertooth P67 Intel Sandy Bridge i5 2500K Corsair XMS 3 (2x2GB) Corsair 600W PSU nVidia 9800 GT WD 6 Gb/s 640GB HDD w/ Win7 64-bit I am having no performance issues, but I doubt this cycling is good for my PC. Any recommendations? Side note, I received my replacement MB today from Intel. I will be swapping it in the next day or so.

Upgrade to the latest BIOS and see if that fixes it. If not, wait for an updated BIOS to come out. | Report abuse PaqMan9 March 16, 2011 9:42:37 AM Thanks. I installed the replacement MB last night and it came with the latest version of BIOS and the hiccup at power-up has gone away. | Report abuse PaqMan9 March 16, 2011 9:42:48 AM Best answer selected by PaqMan9. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Start up Problems> Related ressources: ForumProblems with my Monitor on start up .
