Hello everyone, I'm new here i just joined so i can fix this damn problem.


Okay so my problem is that my computer is wierd when it comes to it's first boot after being inacitve for a couple of hours,

This is usually what happens when i boot

1: Computer goes on normally

2: screen flashes indicating it has a signal to the GPU

3: Screen goes black but is still turned on.

4: Keyboard mouse, headset all LEDs on them turns off

5: Computer shuts down with no warning, not even any thing popping up on screen not even BIOS screen nor windows (boot device problem?)


The funny thing is though after this little "ritual" if i turn on the computer after this it works normally, altough no bios screen but i'm still able to spam DELETE to get into bios but it works fine after this... :/

I know it isn't a huge problem but it's bothering me alot.


one more thing to add might be that i've encountered this problem before but i don't remember how i resolved it xDDDDD

Also my specs
MOTHERBOARD: Z77 mpower 1155 (something like that)

CPU: i5 3570k 4.2ghz

GPU: EVGA GTX 970 4gb

SSD: samsung evo 840 500gb

HDD: hitachi 500 gb

PSU: Corsair 1000w so it shouldn't be a power issue.

RAM: 8gb of corsair vengance running at 1333mhz


Also things i've tried:

1: Unplugging certain components like GPU and one of my ram sticks but to no prevail.

2: Replugging the PSU (I think this is what helped me before when i had this problem but i don't remember )

3: Configuring the boot priorites in BIOS but that didn't help either.


I'm out of ideas here if i don't get it fixed i will just ignore it or take it to a general computer store locally.
