Question about Biostar GEFORCE 6100-M9 Motherboard
The system works perfectly, including warm restarts. It also overclocks very nicely but this has nothing to do with the problem.
Problem: once powered off, it will not power on again with the normal soft switch button. Only when pulling the AC plug or switching off the PSU at the back of the machine for like ten seconds, then switching on again the machine can be started normally. That is, a power cycling routine is always required for a cold boot.
I've tried two different PSU's, same behavior.
I've also tried to reset the bios but the problem persists.
I tried another cpu in this MB, a single core Amd64. Then it worked normally.
So it seems like the problem has something to do with the particular dual core cpu I'm using. I use the latest bios released for this MB.
How can this be solved? I find it extremely strange that this cpu works perfectly in this rig in all other aspects but this very basic one... Of course it is possible to live with this awkward startup routine I guess but it would be very nice if it could be made to behave normally.
Many thanks in advance for all input!
