It takes 2 or 3 attempts for me to boot my pc

HP Envy h8-1534
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
So, I have an HP Envy h8-1534 desktop, and it takes 2 or 3 attempts for to boot when turned on. When I turn it on, I can hear the fans start working, and the HP logo comes up, but nothing else happens. It stays on the HP logo indefinetely. I have to turn my computer off and back on 2 or 3 times for it to actually boot. I took a look inside of the computer, and it is INFESTED with dust. Could this be the cause?

Yes, it could.  Nothing that a can of compressed-air, and a few Q-tips cannot remedy.

This is a symptom of a much-worse problem:

  • failing power-supply
  • failing motherboard
  • failing disk-drive

When you power-on your HP computer, launch the HP Hardware Diagnostics, and run the tests, to check for hardware problems.
