Computer will not post

Coincidentally, I had a Soyo mobo that had a similar problem. Sometimes it would refuse to boot in the case, I'd remove it, and it would work fine. I checked very carefully for case shorts, and never saw anything. It would work fine for a few months, and then one day it would refuse to post. I'd remove and replace, and it would work again. I never did figure out what was wrong with that one.

It checks memory, but also your mobo and CPU.
Memtest86 is a stand alone program that cannot be executed under windows and must
be loaded from a floppy disk.
To install Memtest86:
- Extract the files from the zip archive
- Open the directory where the files were extracted and click on "install.bat".
- The install program will prompt you for the floppy drive and also prompt you to
insert a blank floppy.
- To run Memtest86 leave the floppy in the drive and reboot.
NOTE: After the boot floppy has been created you will not be able to read the floppy
from windows. This is normal.
