My computer NEVER boots up first time. When I press the On button, it will stall and the monitor light will just continue flashing. I then have to keep retrying the On/Off Button until I hear 2 "blips" from inside my tower, then I know it will boot up fine. If it just does 1 "blip", 99% of the time it won't boot up.
This has only happened since I have re-formatted my computer. When I play a STEAM game, occasionally it will feel like my mouse has frozen. The graphics are still in motion and the sound is fine, but I can't control anything or press anything. This will last for a second or two. I've come to notice that this mostly happens the FPS is dropping or there's a lot going on at once.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling my graphics drivers multiple times (same thing happening no matter which I use), and reinstalling STEAM. All my other drivers are fully up to date and working so I put this down to a hardware fault.
