Windows 7: PC will Cold Boot but won't Warm boot?

Were you ever getting a BSOD with this problem?
What I'm trying to figure out is the difference in the way drivers load between booting a PC and Restarting a PC.

To the best of my knowledge their shouldn't be any.
But it might be different from motherboard to motherboard and from Bios to Bios.

Did you or did you not have to plug the wires from the switch into the motherboard?

The reason I'm asking is. If their is one connector from the switches on the tower to the motherboard if that connector is turned 180 deg your prower switch would become your reset switch and visa versa.

In my pea brain two and two is not adding up to four.

No - never a BSOD with this problem.

However the AMD atikmdag driver issue caused BSOD about once a week. But that's an entirely different problem.
Well I wonder? Perhaps the during the restart when the monitor went blank it was waiting on something from the video card driver before initiating a restart?

I'm trying to understand what fixed your boot and restart problem.

OK - yes. I'm new @ this. Assumed you meant did I touch the switch on the front panel. I did plug connectors into 15, 17, 21 & 23. Sorry for the confusion





Removing the AMD drivers & CCC seemed to have fixed the restart issue.

thanks

Thank you for the picture and the to the point way of answering the questions. That helps.
Did you have to change any of the connection on the motherboard from the way you installed it the first time?
I understand they are keyed.
I'm asking all these questions so I and all the other people reading our post from around the world can have a better understanding.

No change, this MOBO is exactly like the one it replaced. The connections only go on one way so really impossible to put them on incorrectly.

Thank you.
That leaves it down to the drivers that cause the BSOD.
I do believe if you would of mentioned the BSOD in the beginning of your posts you could of saved a lot of money and time.
Just a thought if you ever get BSOD again.

The members here are very good at BSOD.

Well I didn't mention BSOD in then beginning because I don't think to has anything to with the Cold Boot vs. Warm Boot issue.
That is an entirely different problem.

You said:
Code:
Please make your answers short and to the point.
I get lost in the stories.
I am trying not to introduce anything that is not relevant to the Warm start issue. BSOD only from AMD driver atikmdag issue.

So anyone viewing this thread please do not read into it anywhere that BSOD had anything to do with the initial question.

Now you got me confused again.
Are you saying the driver problem that could of caused the BSOD had nothing to do with the driver problem that caused the restart problem.

I'm leaning towards your conclusion & they are connected - it's possible both Warm Start & BSOD are caused by the displayport cable. I posted in the BSOD Help & Support per your suggestion = BSOD while streaming on DisplayPort attached monitor?
The infamous pin 20 issue.

No issues when displayport monitor unattached. Waiting for a new Accell DP cable. Hope it will be the fix.

thanks

A weird problem has developed when booting to Windows7. From a cold start all is well and the computer will run for days, but if I do a warm restart or shut down and start right away it goes to "Starting Windows" with the Windows Logo; stays there for about 10 seconds then appears to carry on...
