Computer takes few hours to work

  Ok so let me explain this issue. A few months ago I replaced the motherboard for a unrelated issue and I got a ASUS H87m pro(I think). Here is issue, and it has happened before. When I unplug the power supply for one reason or another, and plug it back in, the computer won't turn on. It will take a few hours to be able to even do anything, until then the motherboard light turns on(as it does upon being plugged in) but nothing happens when the power button is pushed, not even spinning fans. Last time it happened, I had to wait over night, and it worked again. I'm assuming this is what is going to happen again. Ideas? I really wish not to wait a few hours to work.

Hi,

 

did you make sure all cables are properly plugged in?

can you try to replicate the issue with a different PSU?

Can you try to replicate the issue with your PSU on a different PC? (if you have a friend who has a PC and would help you troubleshoot)

I can try replicating this issue on a PC with a core 2 duo using my PSU, but I don't have any other PSUs that has a graphics card connector.

The i3 should have onboard graphics, so you can try pulling the gpu out of the system.

Actually I just tested the PSU on another computer(in other words a bare motherboard that had a C2D cpu and 4gb of ram) and it works. Seems like a motherboard issue... DESPITE THE FACT I REPLACED THE MOTHERBOARD A FEW MONTHS AGO.

Things like that can happen from time to time. I'd still recommend testing it with the other PSU just to make sure, but you should probably look up how to RMA the board in your region.

Not sure if I can do that considering I bought it from a third hand seller on Newegg... And I didn't pay for warranty. Also I'll try testing with a 20 pin PSU(second best PSU I have) and see if it even powers on my PC when I can.

Welp I tried another power supply and it worked after unplugging the graphics card, turned on. Then I plugged in the graphics card, and it turned on again. So I connected the original PSU, and it all works now! I don't know what causes this, but honestly since I'm going to get another month or 2(hopefully) without dealing with this, I'm happy considering I built this machine that is falling apart on Jan 2nd, 2015.
