    Need to push power button twice to boot up in windows 10


    Hewlett-Packard Pavilion HPE h8-1234

    System Specs:
    Gigabyte Motherboard
    3.50 gigahertz AMD FX -8320 Eight-Core

    SanDisk SDSSDH3 2T00 2000.40 GB -- drive 1, Status: Healthy this is my boot drive
    ST2000DX001-1NS164 [Hard drive] 2000.40 GB -- drive 0, Status: Healthy

    16342 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory

    Windows 10 Home x64 Version 2004 build 19041.388

    THE PROBLEM:
    When I do a windows shutdown then try to power back up, I have to do a power button shutdown then press the power button again so it will boot back up. I noticed that it doesn't even run POST during the first attempt. I have tried going intoControl Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options -> Choose what the power buttons do and disabling Fast startup but that has not done anything. As a matter of fact my untrained eye says it still boots up pretty fast but that could be because my boot drive is an SSD.
    Any ideas?

    :)

    Notebook requires pressing power button twice to properly boot, hibernation no longer works ...

    Hi

    well I do not know if you read thru what I explained, but I clearly mention the suggested steps did NOT help.

    I also mention that BIOS driver being behind this is just a mere suspicion by me. So you also think it is the cause?

    I had also mentioned before

    • that even after Windows upgrade from Win 8.1 & subsequent clean installs, there used to be NO PROBLEM, with hibernation working together with Fast Boot & no need to use power button twice
    • that Samsung stopped making notebooks & only provides support up to Win 8.1 and so that includes BIOS. Having said that, there was originally no problem, but may be some Win Update or Build is behind this.
    There are some issues like this and the mentioned separate issue, of the Start Menu ceasing to function for no apparent reason that do not seem to have a solution in some cases for Windows 10.

    Kind regards

    Notebook requires pressing power button twice to properly boot, hibernation no longer works ...

    Hi there



    I have a Samsung Laptop NP355E7C-S09DE, originally with Window 8, but updated to Windows 10.
    I have also in the meantime made several CLEAN installations of Windows 10. Originally, also under Windows 10, Hibernation used to work, and then LATER, with no apparent cause stopped with Windows getting stuck at Samsung Logo, when trying
    to wake it up. Then, you have to press power button to turn off & then ON again. This of course makes you loose what you had before hibernation.

    Also I realized later, that almost all the time, if you POWER off, it has the same issue, needing practically pressing the power button twice to get Windows to load normally.



    I have contacted Microsoft forums several times, but the offered solutions, which seem
    to work for SOME people of disabling FAST BOOT, etc, & all types of suggested troubleshooting




    Currently, several people (using different PCs) who have the exact problem have no solution & there does not seem to be any working answer even if you search the internet as the only suggested solutions include the mentioned turning off of Fastboot
    + various types of scans/troubleshooting which DO NOT help SOME.



    So Hibernation no longer works & almost all the time, after normal power down, when you Start the PC, it gets stuck at Logo, ... needing to press switch OFF & then back on. That's when Windows loads normally.



    Does the BIOS version come into question as being behind this, may be it not being compatible with the CURRENT & RECENT builds of Windows 10?



    This is info shown by CPU-Z on Motherboard:



    Manufacturer of Laptop: Samsung Electronics

    Model: NP355E7C-S09DE (BOARD REVISION 00)

    Chipset: AMD || K15 IMC ||
    Rev.: 00

    Southridge: AMD || AMD 08 || FCH
    || Rev.: 2.4



    BIOS

    Brand: American Trends

    Version: P07ABF

    Date: 07/04/2013



    Other Info:

    Processor: AMD A8-4500M (APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics)



    • Could it be a BIOS problem?


    I must add, Samsung stopped manufacturing notebooks BEFORE Windows 10 & most of their current support & drivers/software, etc are limited to Win 8.1.



    All software, drivers with the help of Iobit Driver Booster, etc & Windows are consistently up-to-date.



    I would appreciate some clear answers & support.



    Kind regards



    Miki

    UPDATE

    I disabled HIBERNATION & noted that at least AFTER the subsequent, preliminary 5, 6 Shutdowns, I could power-up the notebook with it
    not getting stuck at the Logo & requiring turning off the PC & pressing the power button to get it starting normally.

    It seems there's a problem with hibernation, which does not seem to work and this started months ago. No idea whether it was after a specific update or build.

    • After re-enabling Fast Boot, the problem of having to press the power button twice comes back. Right now as I right this, it's been stuck at the Samsung logo for the last 15 minutes.
    The question is: is there a working solution from Microsoft for Windows 10 making it possible for Fast Boot co-existing with Hibernation + no requirement to press the power button twice to boot to desktop?

  4. Need to push power button twice to boot up in windows 10

    and look at Jasper851's answer and see if it helps with your issue.
