Hello, I recently built my own gaming computer, it is my second build. It's been about 2 weeks since I built it, and lately I've been having problems when I try to boot it up after a complete shut off. What usually happens is that the PC will boot up for 2-3 secs and then shut off on its own, then reboot up, and it will work fine from that point on. But it takes it two attempts to boot properly and I am worried that it could be something serious. Specs are as follows:
Mobo: ASUS P8P67 LE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Video Card:SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16
Any ideas as to what could be causing the two attempts at booting?

Common issue with Sandy Bridge boards, especially ASUS. Make sure you have the latest BIOS update, but I don't think they have completely got this fixed quite yet. Mine does it too, but only sometimes, and I have not tried to a BIOS update yet.
