I have a HP Z210 Workstation. About a year ago I replaced the power supply with a EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B1, #110-B1-0750-VR. This required usage of an adapter because of HP's motherboard odd connector. I then replaced the video card with a EVGA Geforce GTX960. Ever since then, when the PC is powered off, it does not want to come back on. It eventually will, but only when it wants to. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Welcome to PCHF David,

Not around for too long this evening unfortunately but a couple of questions that may help move things along for you when our colleagues are able to drop in;

when the PC is powered off, it does not want to come back on. It eventually will, but only when it wants to.
How long are you leaving the computer before trying to restart it, overnight or while the computer is still warm.

How are you trying to restart the computer, by the chassis power on button or waking Windows from sleep.

Have you tried re-seating the memory sticks and checking that all internal connections are secure.
