  1. Power on twice to load W10


    I visit my son in the USA once in a while and about two years ago I upgraded his perfectly working W7 X64, 8Gb Desktop PC to W10. Despite all my efforts I could not get W10 to load unless I a) powered on and partway through the load it stops b) power off c) power on again and it loads ok. Two years later I am back and have just refreshed his W10 and brought it up to the May Update level hoping that this would include a fix for the problem but alas no joy. The motherboard is an ASUS M3A78-EM and it seems as though the last version of the driver for it was 2010 so that should be ok. Any theories as to where the problem lies would be most welcome to him and his power supply.

    :)

    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)

    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Lost Power, now PC won't boot. Powers on and clicks.


    I had tried both of those steps. Neither worked. I have a replacement power supply on order. Should be here on Monday. Thanks for the suggestions.
