    Strange computer power on behavior

    This one's got me a little stumped. Just happened yesterday for the first time. If I turn the home rig on, everything power up like normal, except there is no video output to the screen. If I hit the reset button and power buttons enough to make it finally turn off, the next time I press the power button, it fires up normally, this time with video output to the monitor.
    It's done this twice now.
    Any ideas? Both GPU and PSU are pretty new - about 2 months old.

    Heh, I guess that's better than what I thought you were gonna say, "time to buy a Threadripper!"

    I have that same problem from time to time.... I turn off the power button to the PSU, count to 20, and turn it back on...
    Video comes back on...
    In otherwords, I cold start it.
