What niggles do your system(s) have?

I think that every enthusiast has a little niggle or two that they put up with on the computers they run. Here's mine:

1) My main rig likes to hang during the Windows boot. I'm pretty sure that it's due to some weird USB issue as the lights on my HOTAS set either turn off or on exactly at the time it freezes. Sometimes the system boots without issue, other times it may take me five or six attempts to get into Windows. Once it's started it's all good though!

2) My laptop sometimes likes to change the time in the BIOS by -6 hours. I've tried looking into the issue but can't find a solution and it only takes a few seconds to right it.

3) The HTPC has to boot 'twice' - I think this is because I have an M.2 SSD as the boot disk.

So, anyone got any weird issues that they just put up with?

Nothing that I can think of currently, but before my MB died and was replaced by Asus my PC used to spike to 100% on one core every couple of seconds when my old USB headset was plugged in.

1) My ASUS X99 Deluxe/GTX980 system sometimes doesn't boot on 1st try after leaving it off for few hours in the night. Pressing the reset button solves this, system boots fine.
2) My Ubuntu fileserver sometimes decides that root filesystem is not available at boot, throws kernel panic. Change nothing, reboot few times, suddenly works.

My PC with a fancy RAID controller in it sometimes doesnt turn off, windows shuts down but fans keep going and I need to hold the power button to turn the system off fully.

My laptop has sone issue with the <fn> buttons - when you turn it on you need to turn the backlight on the keyboard on, the wifi on, and unmute the sound. Every time...

I could probably fix all of these issues but I haven't got round to it.

Usually nothing - random unexplained gremlins are not something I tolerate for long, and have often spent many hours picking apart systems to isolate the cause of an occasional glitch.

I'm pretty happy with my current system, other than the fact it wouldn't switch on this very morning! Turns out the 24 pin connector wasn't seated properly when I changed my PSU last week.

My 290 blackscreens, but only at idle.

Some weird power saving bug, something about it coming out of idle clocks and the volts not catching up in time so I have read.

Powercolor support gave me a bios that made all my games artifact, so found another bios online that seems to have 99% sorted it.

Still a odd problem though, can game fine so not a killer issue.

One or more of my harddrives occasionally start vibrating at a resonant frequency with my case so the whole thing starts buzzing. I slap on the side usually stops it. Happens every few days.

Had a similar printer related issue with my older PC that would not boot if it was turned on for whatever reason. Epsom printer.

Current PC sometimes decides there's not 12gb of ram installed only 4gb which can be a but interesting when the program you want to run says you need more than this installed.

same issue with the ASUS X99 Deluxe except I tracked down the problem of it not booting properly.

Its the USB connections, I have to remove around half of the USB cables then boot, other wise the machine hangs on boot.

Once machine is booted up then I can reconnect my midi keyboard, external devices.

At least I know what to do and can work around the issue but ideally ASUS product team will get a BIOS developed that supports more than half of the USB ports being connected to on cold start up.

I am more than happy other than that and can easily put up with this small inconvenience.

Every now and then bringing my PC out of sleep results in no display resulting in having to do a hard reset.

One of my mini itx pc's decides that the windows 10 preview install is no good making me have to reinstall which is really annoying when it is rarely used, really need to buy an proper OS for it.

That's what she said

Anyway, my system likes to randomly start humming with resonance every now and then and it can be really infuriating. If its not windows deciding to spin up a hard drive its not even using nor understand, its the case side fan.

My PC will occasionally start resonating as well - it's the fans in the top of the case resonating the top cover - placing something on the top (currently a DVD case but in the past I've also used a hole punch haha) stops that. Also sometimes it won't start up again when shut down unless the switch on the PSU is turned off for a while first... Also after I've logged into windows, the keyboard won't register for about 30 seconds but works fine before that to log in and after that. Other than that, all seems to be fine (touches wood)

My gaming rig never does anything out of the ordinary and never has, same with the workshop rig and the htpc the kitchen one will occasionally freeze up but that one is due to a complete re install and I'll likely do the upgrade to win 10 on that one

The motherboard doesn't support custom fan profiles for 3 pin fans (only PWM). Its annoying because my favourite fans (GTs) are 3 pin only!

I know, i think i saw your posts on [H]. Still, pressing the reset button is a quicker solution , having a Silverstone FT-05 bellow the desk, it would be annoying to remove and then replug all those cables.

I've had many over the years, but the two I currently suffer are a weird message at boot which only lasts a fraction of a second and is related to a borked Acronis install, and very occasionally my rig boots to a blank desktop and is unresponsive, requiring a hard reset.

The former isn't an issue and the latter is rare enough for me not to worry about. Both are hangovers from cloning to my existing SSD I suspect.
