    I have to push my power on button 7 or more times before the computer turns on. Once it gets going it boots ok and everything is fine from then on. I do not have hibernation enabled. It is a new computer (3 months) but this has only been a problem for about 3 weeks or so.

    AMD Athlon XP 2600+

    Yes, everytime I turn the computer on it takes a few pushes on the button before it turns on. The computer is not a brand name but a custom build by a very reputable shop.

    It may very well be a bad switch and it is under warranty. It has a 3 year warranty. That is one reason I went with a custom build. My last machine was a Compaq with a 1 year warranty and a restore disk - I got the XP OS disk with this one. Thanks for the reply..... I think I will stop in Monday and talk to the tech.

    Yeah, it could be a bad connection to the power. Good luck! :)
