|I'm fixing this computer which i have been told shuts down at random times, and sometimes doesn't boot up. I've tried replacing the memory, Power supply, unplugging all pci cards, hds, cdroms. Reseting the bios, and adding thermal paste to the cpu. I done all this and i get it to post for me. Then the phone rang when i just turned it on, about 5mins into the phone call, the pc posts. Why did it take so long? Is this a sign of a bad motherboard or something else?|
Since its working, I'm running HDAT2, to check for bad sectors on the HD.
