PC takes long time power up

Igorot_Jay

Ok .... I always turn off pc plug when I leave for some time. When I turn it back on, the pc wont takes time to power up, no lights on gfx card or speakers indicating that they have power... and it takes like 5 minutes then its powers up. Anyone have had this problem before?

what PSU you got?

 

how old is the PC?

Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.

No, b cause computers are not meant for the psu to be turned off all the time. Besides, it drains your cmos battery.

CMOS battery last for few years

 

they hardly use power to store BIOS settings and keep the clock in sync

I know, but im just saying, it will need to be replaced, and if it is at the end of its life, you will lose all bios settings.

Okay, I think you're saying when you put it in sleep it takes ages to wake up? How old is teh PSU? What CPU do you have? If you have haswell it might be because when it idles it is around 1 watt which some psus may turn off or have problems with it.

if the BIOS setting is gone the PC will have an error saying CMOS battery error

 

also the pattern sounds like the PSU is not inputting power to the components

False. A CMOS battery is a watch battery. It will literally last for years.
