    Hi and welcome to the forums

    Please don't bump your thread more than once in 24 hours. The forums are very busy and we are all volunteers here so sometimes it can take time before a post is answered.

    I would also like to remind you that these forums are visited by people of all ages and to think twice before using certain linguistic expressions.

    To the problem:
    please help us diagnose the issue by posting the results of the boot info script.

    There is a link at the bottom of my post with instructions.

    Thanks for understanding.

    In my experience, this type of problem is often caused by a physical connector which doesn't work well until it has warmed up a bit.

    If you are comfortable working inside the case of your PC, turn off the power, then try just disconnecting, then connecting each of the cables. Also pull out and re-insert any expansion cards and RAM modules. If you aren't comfortable doing that yourself, perhaps you have a more experienced friend?

    The advice about disconnecting and reconnecting cables is a waste of time. There's no need to do that. Ever.
