    I turn off my computer every night and when I attempt to turn it back on in the morning I have to cycle it on using the Power Swith from 2 to 8 times to get it to start the boot procedure.

    When I hit the power switch I can hear the fans running but nothing else happens. I hold the power switch in for 4 seconds and it shuts completely down. I wait several seconds and repeat the procedure until it finally boots up all the way. Once it boots it works fine for the rest of the day.

    Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this problem? I reseated the RAM but I don't know what else to try.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Try re-seating the graphics card. Do you mean that it does not even show the post/bios screen?

    Nothing comes up on the screen:it remains black. I will try to reset the Graphics card before I turn it off tonight and I will let you know tomorrow if that works.
    Thanks,

    Firstly have you overclocked your CPU or RAM? If so you could try setting things back to stock and see if that works. Otherwise I would guess it's your RAM that is causing the problems. I say this because I had the same problem on my old PC and it started working fine after I replaced the RAM.
