    I have a Dfi lanparty mobo, AMD FX 60 processor, Geforce 7800 GTX 512 card, 600w psu, and recently whenever i push the power button the computer does not turn on immediately. It just sits there for anywhere from 10-40 seconds until fans start going and lights start blinking. I have tried messing with the power button itself to see if something came loose but nothing is wrong with the power button because if i want to press it to turn the power off everthing works fine! Everything works perfectly once its on, but its kind of annoying pressing a power button and having nothing happen.

    Have you tried restoring your motherboard to factory settings?
    Which power supply do you use?

    You can try fiddling around with which slots stuff is in, but if no luck, you'll just have to be patient.
