    Having to prss power button twice on laptop before it will start


    I have this new GE62 MSI laptop running Win10 all was fine with it until by coincidence apparently windows updates some drivers and then right after my optical drive died, along with the MSI recovery methods got corrupted... the service centre replaced the optical drive etc and I got the laptop back I tried the drive and started to configure Windows to my liking a few items at a time, again everything fine....

    Now all of a sudden the problem is I push the power button once it stays on the MSI boot logo until I push the button again and it turns off straight away, push the button again the MSI logo appears and then I get the little Windows loading circle of dots and Windows loads up and works fine after that....

    Obviously this is not right and peeing me off especially since it has only just started happening, I don't have much in the way of software installed and its the same software I had installed before the optical drive died and I did not have that problem before then....

    Any suggestions please guys.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 not starting on first startup.

    Whenever I shut down my laptop, on the next startup, the startup fails midway without any error or BSOD with just a blank screen. I need power on the laptop again using the power button to start it up. So I need to start my machine twice every time to
    boot it up. Same is the case with hibernation. Resume from hibernation causes sudden power off with a blank screen. I have to start the machine using power button and it starts afresh instead of resuming.

    Laptop have to be turned on twice to start boot!

    Hi, i recently bought my laptop and things were fine, i upgraded to windows 10 still fine, but after some updates, suddenly when i try to turn it on, it turns off quick and i have to press again the power button to turn it on again then it will boot normally.

    Thanks, I tried that but it made no difference... I changed the boot order to usb/dvd then hdd and that has solved the problem for some reason.
    The thing being there are a few similar boot order entries that basically mean the same thing just worded differently so technically I have not changed anything apart from one worded entry to it's counterpart, MSI logic is quite strange.
