here is the problem:
1- Sometimes I change my memory modules and the the comp wont boot, then I trial and error one module at the time and the PC boots (solution that works most)
2- Sometimes when won´t boot I do an trial and error by unplugging components one by one and see if the PC boots, in this atempts 2 times I unplugged the diskette drive and the PC booted. Note: the first time I thought that i had an bad diskette drive and I replaced with a new one.
3- Sometimes when the PC wont boot i take the graphic card out and when i put it again the PC boots
4- Sometimes nothing of these works and i.e. I go to eat or to sleep and the next time, voilà, PC boots!
Help! should I change my motherboard? It´s an old Asus P4C800 with Intel 875P chipset, at the time in 2004 it was top of the line (it should be it cost me about 270 dollars).
Although the above is boring to me, it only happens sometimes (not always) when I have to open the PC and change some component and even when happens once I do one of the above solutions and it works i never have to worry anymore for 1, 2 or 3 years or more unless I have to change some component again.
