I have the following strange behaviour on my NF7-S motherboard with an Antec
case, Mandrake 9.2. Most of the time when I turn on the computer with the
front case power-on switch the fans, HD and CDROM start up, but the machine
won't boot until I hit the reset switch.
However, if I turn off the power supply at the rear main switch, turn it
back on again and then hit the front panel power switch it DOES boot
without using the reset switch. I have checked the wiring of my switches to
the MB and they seem fine.
