Gateway GWTN156-1 Startup Issues...

Not sure if this is the correct area of the forum, if not, maybe it can be moved to the correct area...

I have a newer Gateway GWTN156-1. I turned the power on one day and got a blank screen - power lights, etc were all on. I pushed and held the power button to shut it down, pushed the power button again and it started right up. Since then, every time, the above happens. Push the power button, lights, etc come on, but get a blank screen. Push and hold the power button to shut it down, push the power button again and it starts right up. Any idea what might be causing this? Here's what I've tried so far...

Reset the bios setting to default, did full virus scans from a couple different antivirus programs (including root, hook, etc scans), which found nothing. Went thru my power settings. Nothing has helped thus far...

Hello and welcome to TSG!!

Do you shut your system off fully each time you are finished using it? Or let it go to sleep or hibernate.
