Since installing Win8, my computer will not reboot. Even if I shut down and restart, Windows does not load. If I shut down and turn the PSU off; turn it back on; then try to start, it will not start. The only way I can reboot is to shut down; turn the PSU switch off; unplug the power cord; hold down the start button; then reverse the process. Needless to say, this is a huge irritant.
While there might be some role played by the mobo, this was not a problem when I was running Win7. My hardware includes a Fatal1ty Professional P67 mobo; 16GB ram; 2 SSDs; 4 conventional SATA drives; three optical drives; a PC Power and Cooling PSU; and a i7-2600 CPU.
Has anyone ever seen this condition? Any ideas as to how to fix it?
