My pc sometimes boots up twice for no reason at all ( help needed )

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I'm running my pc overclocked since I build it a good year ago. Now all of the sudden for the last few weeks my pc sometimes boots up twice?

When I press the power button the led lights and fans start up but a few second later before the post screen its turns off, then turns on and everything is fine from then on??

What is causing this issue???

Hello,
Usually this is caused by a bad unstable clock. What happens is your computer is booting and crashing before booting up windows. When it restarts, its reverting back to either the base clock or the last known working configuration. Usually the latter unless otherwise defined in your BIOS booting options.

I really hope you read my post before replying. It doesn't get to windows before it boots again, it doesn't even start up POST screen it just starts the fan's, and led lights and after a few seconds it restarts. But I have no issues afterwards with stability or any other for that mater.

Its kind of weird since I didn't had this problem before.

This is most probably a self-check. My old Asus board did this too, if I had the computer turned off, and disconnected from power (unplugged from wall socket, or flipped the powerswitch of the PSU). I believe other things can trigger this check too, for example, the battery on the mobo is getting low on power. My current Intel board does a check liek this on every boot no matter what. If this is the case (which I believe it is), that is completely normal, and its just doing a check if the clocks and settings are somewhat stable. rolleyes.gif (AT OWN RISK: try putting some insane ram frequency in bios, then save it and shutdown, and when you next time boot, it should "on the second boot" notify "Overclocking failed!" or similiar). Some boards may have an option in bios for turning this checking off though.

Now that you mention it I do have my computer unplugged trough the night. I'm gonna take your word for it and not bother my self with it. It doesn't cause me any issue it was just an annoyance as I had no idea if something's wrong with one of my components.

I read your post...and there's a easy way of checking to see if it is, by maxing your core and seeing if its getting the same clock you had it set to. However , you didn't state if you where getting the same clock you have it set to. I understand its a cold start, but it could be jumping back to some sort of default.

I use to use Intel quick start, again, dunno if your using that....but that would happen all the time with me using that. SO anywho....hope you get it worked out.

Its the same mate, thats why I was worried about whats wrong. I don't have any issue once I'm in the windows environment it self.

Yea I guess its a waiting game to see what happens, but I think its what Microx said.
