So my desktop computer doesn't start sometimes - I click on Power button / power on MB and nothing happens. Usually it does start after few hours. Been happening for the last 2-3 months so lately i just didn't turn it off, but its not a solution.

When it finally starts then everything is working perfectly, so I have absolutely no idea what the problem might be.

Specs:
MB: Gigabyte GA-z77X-UP7
Power Supply: Seasonic 1250xm
CPU: I7 3770K
RAM: BallistiX sport 16gb
SSD: HyperX
GPU: MSI R9 280X 3G

No recent upgrades or changes in Hardware or software.

Might be a failing switch....

Try to eliminate other possible causes.

Have you tried other devices in the wall outlet or otherwise had the wall outlet checked? Could be a loose wire inside meaning intermittent power.

Next, have you checked inside the desktop? Look for loose connections. Ensure that all cables, cards, memory modules, jumpers, etc. are all fully and fimly in place.

And how old is the PSU? PSU issues generally cause a variety of problems. If the problem is only on/off then the PSU may be okay.
