    So my gaming rig ive had for a few years has always worked fine, never any problems. One day I moved it downstairs, and left it unplugged for about a week. I brought it back up and hooked it up, and it it wouldnt start. The fans would turn on for a split second and my LED's too and then it would just stop.

    My first thought was "oh lawd my psu burnt out". But i did the ground test with a paperclip and it was fine. So i started doing some trouble shooting. I took my graphics card out and tried to turn it on and it worked. So i went in through onboard graphics and went into my bios and reset it. I reseated my graphics card and started it up and it worked fine like there was never any problems.

    But now every time i turn it off, it does the same exact thing. I have to take out my card and reset my bios every time i turn on my computer. Now I try not to turn it off unless I have to but still ive had to go through this process like 6 times already.

    It works every time i do it but still ide like to know whats going on with it. Any ideas?
