So i have a weird issue on my hand. I built a computer a while back and it doesn't always boot, sometimes it stays on the bios screen, other times it boots right up. So naturally i thought this was a HD issue so i replaced the old with a new SSD. It installed Windows and everything seemed sweet as an apple pie until it started doing the same sh*t again. Another weird habit the computer has is it surges before it boots up. For instance I'll push the power button and it immediately fires up for half a second but then it powers off, then in a second or two it will fire back up for good.
Things i've done:
1. Check all the connections to the motherboard, psu and switches.
2. Went from original HD to SSD.
3. Confirmed proper SATA port for booting drive.
4. Confirmed power to HD's.
5. Confirmed proper booting order in BIOS.
6. Confirmed AHCI in BIOS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys/gals.
