Power Button Issue!

Hi all i just wanna know that is it safe if i press the power button to turn off the PC manually when the HDD is not connected and the PC shows to invalid bla bla insert boot media msg after the Logo screen on start up? coz today when i did the PC went off for 2 seconds and restarted again.... aaah im using chinese casing and it's fine thought but sometimes i have to press and hold power button a very very bit hard than normal for about 1 or 2 seconds to boot up the computer.

i mean i pressed the button to turn off for couple of seconds and pc shutdowned and turned back on right after 1 or 2 seconds than on 2nd attempt it turned of properly... Is it ok for hardware or it can damage anytihng inside pc? im just curious...

It's called a hard shutdown if you hold the start button in until the computer shuts down and it really doesn't hurt anything to do it once in awhile, if you have to do it very often then i would start looking into why.

Maybe you didn't hold the button in until the computer fully shutdown.

Capacitor issues I'm not familiar with, or maybe your power button wiring to your motherboard is coming off or something; I've bumped mine before and almost didn't notice that some of the female connectors came off.
