Here's the problem, it seems my computer only wants to boot when it wants too!
Otherwise I see the no signal everyone else seems to be having. I can unplug it sometimes for minutes, hours, or days and I never know when it is going to boot again. It powers on fine everytime, but doesn't always boot. I have jumped the CMOS, taken the Ram out, tried one stick at a time, took it down to bare minimum, pulled board out and checked for burnt spots or cracks, pulled out modem, and just when I think its dead for sure it'll fire back to life! During the no boot times, the fans run, the hard drive flashes a yellow signal at me once, then goes to green, power button shines green. I've tried using the System recovery Disc that Vista urges you to make from your system, but alas no go as I can hear it working in the DVD player and the lights flashing but then it quits.
During one of the times I was able to get into Windows, I checked the memory and it was only reporting 512MB, shut it down to see which stick was bad and haven't got it back up since, that was yesterday.
Oh and everytime I plug it back into the wall, it powers on by itself, I never have to hit the power button, but I do to shut it down.
Keyboard and mouse also don't work during non-boot time.
Someone please help!
