PC requires two boots from a cold start and restart. I felt I had diagnosed it to Motherboard and purchased a new different motherboard with updated BIOs but the issue remains. This happens nearly every time. On restarts I have had success, but cold starts it always happens.
Tested PS supply with multimeter and tried another PS with the same issue
Tested with only the SSD hooked up (different SATA cables). Other hard drives disconnected.
Tested with different and individual RAM (removed one ram stick as it was causing issues)
Tested with and without graphics card (no change)
Put new thermal paste and reseated CPU and CPU cooler.
All fans seem to be working properly
Motherboard is brand new with updated BIOS
All drivers are up to date.
Windows is activated with legit product key.
Random other issues:
- Start menu was not able to be clicked on. Ran TS and couldn't resolve. Installed classic powershell which fixed this one.
- Windows update not showing up anymore. When i look at installed updates I only see this. When I attempt to fix the issue, I see these as issue and apply the fix through the wizard, which fails.
Any help for any of this is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
