Well, when I shutdown my PC it wont boot with power button so i have to turn off the back switch then turn it back on and then it boots. I have no clue why but it has been doing this for about 6 months. I usually leave my computer on for about 2 weeks at a time unless i have a problem. If someone could help me solve my problem i would be much appreciative. thanks.

Does the computer shutoff or does it still partially stay on? ie. do the fans continue to run?

This could be faulty powersupply or a Windows problem where it shutsdown but hangs before the computer is turned off.

Well, when I get done with my computer sometimes i turn it off. When i shut it off it goes normaly and the computer totally shuts off including the fans. When i try to turn it back on with the power button it wont work. if i turn the back power supply switch off then back on, it boots with the power button but only once. then i have to do the whole process over again.

Trying another powersupply would be my first step.
