Unless it is very slightly dodgey, not enough to cause problems with most things but some things in computers were not made to be fully ready in as shorter time as Windows 8 can manage a boot. Can you add a delay in the bios, that may also alleviate the issue.

One thing, did you install the AI Suite crud that comes with the motherboard?
I have had huge problems with pretty much every version of that software so now I never install it. The power management part can really mess up graphics cards when coming out of sleep for example too resulting in the card not initialising.
Also try turning fast boot settings off in the bios as well as removing all usb devices besides essentials in case one of them is the cause.

Actually having this issue with a dell 9010 we recently ordered, will try your suggestion now - thanks!

Noooo... I stay miles away from AI Suite! Never ever needed it! I'll have a look at the fast boot options when I get home. As for USB devices, all I have plugged in is:

I had a similar issue with my Home PC when I built it a year ago. Cold boot would black screen, but subsequent reboots were fine.
Turned out the PSU was iffy, because as soon as I swapped from the 850W down to a 750W spare it worked perfectly.
Do you have another PSU you can test with it?

You trying this without any additional hardware plugged in to the machine?
**EDIT**Oops, didnt see the last page on this thread, ignore what i said.
Unless of course its a device plugged inside the machine (graphics adapter, wireless pci card etc)

I had a PC that did this exact thing for 5 years! I just left it in sleep. Always would post but nothing would happen had to force reset and it was fine. I think it was a RAM issue. Same ram in both slots? or have you got some OCZ ram that needs overclocking to get the rated speed. (so the SPD data isn't quite right)

I've got the following RAM in my rig:

It's running at stock, haven't forayed in to overclocking as yet.
