I can't move this to the hardware but try and repost it in the hardware forum.

I suspect this is a hardware issue. I tend to use diag cd's such as ultimate boot cd to try to boot to them and use tests. Otherwise I might look at bios health settings for voltages and temps and any logs that may exist. Might remove parts until only motherboard and cpu and one stick of ram are on to see if boots to bios or boots to usb (with OS on it)
