computer powers up, but no post. Toggling power switch sometimes allows computer to start normally. Any answers?

Hi, is a desktop or a laptop?
How old is the Pc?

If you feel able to and it's a desktop Pc.
Check inside the Pc.

Turn the Pc off - some say leave the plug in to maintain the earth.
But I'd remove the plug from the wall.
Once you have opened the case.
Touch the metal case to discharge any static.

Remove any dust - do not use a vacumm cleaner, too much static.
Check that all fans are free of dust and will rotate.

Remove Ram - Video cards etc and then Reseat in the slots.
But first - clean the copper connections of the Ram - Video cards with a pencil eraser.
If more than one Ram stick - use just one stick at a time installed in your Pc, as a test.
Check all cables and connections.

Put the case back on the Pc - and see if it will boot to the desktop.
