Reboot and Select proper Boot device sometimes pops up

That's what I get sometimes when I start my computer up, it does this and all I have to do is reboot and it starts right up no problem. How can I fix this? It is very annoying.

    I have an old computer that kind of does this when I boot it up in the morning after it's been off for over 10+ hours. It's almost like the system needs to warm up or something. I think it might be my PSU but I haven't gotten around to changing it.
  4. Is my PSU any good?
  5. I don't place much faith in APEX as a PSU provider. If you are planning to get a new PSU, try something like this:

    SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply $59.99

    For my system, I'm not completely sure if it's the PSU, the mobo, or even the hard drive itself. I would usually start to narrow down the problem by replacing the PSU first. In case the PSU is not the problem, you will still have a reliable PSU for future builds.
  6. I mean it happens 20% of the time, I though it was the boot priority but even messing with that it still happens. In the future when I decide to update my build I will add that onto the list I suppose.

  8. Just to be sure, have you checked your mobo for bad capacitors? Sometimes bad caps can also lead to strange symptoms like this.
