First make sure that all USB & Firewire devices are unplugged. Remove any PCI modem or network cards from the motherboard. Pull off the data cable going to the optical drive(s). Does your system now boot reliably ?
If yes, than reconnect the peripherals one by one until the system fails to boot properly
If no then when the system does boot download and run Speedfan. Make sure the +3.3V, +5V and +12V outputs are within +/- 5% of their nominal value.
+3.3: 3.135V to 3.465v
+5: 4.75V to 5.25V
+12: 11.4V to 12.6V
The power supply may just be intermittent and need to be replaced.
The graphics card may be intermittent and need to be replaced.
The motherboard may be intermittent and need to be replaced.
I don't know how you can test for intermittent operation other than by replacing components.
