Windows 7: Power supply surge detected every reboot

Power supply surge detected every reboot

Hi guys

I get a power supply surge every time I reboot (its been like this for 3 days now) and I have to press f2 to load defaults and continue then it boots up fine.

I want to know if I absolutely need a new power supply? or is there anything else I can do to resolve this.

Thanks

Steve

Can you explain a little more about what you are calling a "power supply surge"?

During boot up it stops at the screen below(see image). And I always have to press f2 key to continue, then it boots up.

By reboot, do you mean a restart (as though you pressed the reset button), a cold boot (system powered off and mains off) or a cold boot (system powered off but mains on) ?

If something worked for you can you edit your first post to reflect the fix and mark the topic as 'Solved' please?

Mainly because I'm curious to try what you did. I ended up turning off the Asus surge protection on my board due to lack of alternatives.

That's good to know. Is this now the case for whichever of the 3 methods of shutting down and restarting that I suggested trying above?
