Every time I turn my psu off and then back on my pc will not start.

However, if i turn it off and then take out the cmos battery for 10 seconds and put it back in my pc will start working again. I have to do the cmos battery every time i turn off the power supply.

Without turning off the power supply switch my pc will turn on and off normally.

I know I don't need to switch the psu off every time but sometimes I will turn it off when I need to change a part, clean, or move the pc. This shouldn't happen often but when it does I would need to take out the cmos battery which is inconvenient.

My psu was failing. I tried a different motherboard which wouldn't start at all. Then switched my psu and it worked perfectly.
