So whenever I shutdown my PC something goes wrong, no idea what it is.
I press the power button and the PC lights and fans fire up but the screens do not turn on. As far as I can tell windows never loads either. I have to hold the power button, shut it off and try again. It usually finally turns on the displays and boots after the third or fourth time. I don't get any errors booting up telling me windows was shut down improperly or anything. No beeps happen or anything. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated I am worried something is dying in the machine. Here is my system details.
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 14393) (14393.rs1_release_inmarket.161004-2338)

The main culprit would be the power supply.  Try this, when powering down, do it from a power strip or pull the plug after normal shutdown.  wait 30 seconds, plug in and start normally.  If that works, the PS is the main suspect.  The second choice would be the MOBO.
